Francisco Cervelli injures his hamstring

Francisco Cervelli 4

Well, here goes another injury.

Francisco Cervelli left the game in the fourth inning of tonight’s Yankees/Red Sox game with a hamstring injury. The play was Cervelli had grounded to second where it appeared to be a double play. On the play, Cervelli grabbed at his hamstring and fell to the ground, unable to get up for a few moments. On that same play, Joe Girardi used his challenge to buy time, with the Yankees ultimately winning the challenge and Red Sox manager John Farrell getting tossed from the game.

Cervelli was able to get up and head to the clubhouse on his own but he was obviously limping. Girardi confirmed five minutes after the play Cervelli pulled his hamstring. Ichiro Suzuki pinch ran for Cervelli and later played right field, movingĀ Carlos Beltran to first base for the first time in his career.

    My word, what are these guys doing to themselves that makes them so vulnerable to injuries so quickly ? Of course in my opinion, they lift too much and stretch way too much (studies have found that too much stretching lends itself to muscle injuries). Over preparation can be just as bad as not preparing. The strength & conditioning coach needs to take take a long hard look at their approach.
