New York Yankees’ second baseman Starlin Castro left Saturday afternoon’s contest with the Boston Red Sox after suffering an apparent leg injury.
This late in a season, any nagging injury can finish a player. For the sake of the New York Yankees, they have to hope nothing substantial just took place with Starlin Castro.
The 26-year-old second baseman, who has been stellar in his first season in pinstripes, pulled up lame after driving a fifth-inning double into left-center field at Fenway Park.
While the severity of the injury remains unknown, early signs point to the hamstring of Castro being injured to some extent.
Heading into the contest, the former Cubs shortstop was slashing .273/.304/.438 with 21 homers and 69 RBIs in 145 games this year.
Stay tuned to ESNY for the latest updates on his health.
Starlin Castro pulls up as he runs out a double. Looked like his right hamstring. He's coming out of the game.

Castro leaving the game, may have pulled a hammy between first and second on two-out double. Toe in to run
