After what happened to Mike Soroka last night, injuries are the last thing Braves country wants to hear about, but the team suffered another one in tonight’s game. While trying to beat out a throw to first in his second at-bat, Matt Adams pulled up just before the bag with what looked like a hamstring injury. In his first at-bat, he homered. The team later confirmed the injury and removed him from the game, calling it left hamstring tightness.

In a 60-game shortened season, every injury has to be taken with caution, especially a potentially nagging one like a hamstring. After the game, the Braves announced Adams will go on the IL with a hamstring strain, which makes sense. It looked a lot more like a pull rather than just tightness, which would cost Adams a significant chunk of the season.
