Chicago Cubs: Adbert Alzolay injury update
|2021-08-14 00:43:22.0- -|
MIAMI — Adbert Alzolay exited his start due to injury on Friday night, with the right-hander appearing to favor his left leg on the mound before catcher Robinson Chirinos motioned for manager David Ross and a trainer to come onto the field. Alzolay's ailing plant leg caused the 26-year-old starting pitcher to get pulled from the contest in the second inning. His ERA now stands at 5.16.
"You could see that pain through his eyes and how he felt when he came out from that game," Chirinos said about Alzolay during his postgame media session.
Alzolay was taken out not long after giving up a go-ahead grand slam to Miami Marlins right fielder Bryan De La Cruz with no outs in the bottom of the second, which gave the Fish a 5-4 lead over the North Siders. He ended up being handed the loss, dropping his record to 4-13. Following the Cubs' 14-10 defeat at LoanDepot Park, it was revealed that Alzolay was suffering from left hamstring tightness and would be reevaluated on Saturday. There is no word yet on Alzolay's injury recovery timetable.
UPDATE: The Cubs placed Alzolay on the 10-day injured list on Saturday due to a left hamstring strain, which Ross told reporters was suffered while Alzolay was on the mound.

Manager David Ross says that he hurt the hamstring on the mound and not when he was running the bases in the second inning yesterday. https://t.co/8INdEDkuLZ— Russell Dorsey (@Russ_Dorsey1) August 14, 2021
