Greg Allen exited Sunday’s game with left hamstring discomfort. Allen apparently hurt his hamstring after scoring in the bottom of the 2nd inning, sliding home on a sacrifice fly from Diego Castillo. The severity of the injury is unknown and is currently being examined by the medical staff.
The 29-year-old Allen was picked off of waivers by the Pirates from the Yankees on November 5th of, 2021, and is expected to make the opening day roster in the outfield. If the injury is serious or involves the IL, this may open up a spot for Bligh Madris or Diego Castillo.
So far in spring training, Allen is batting .294 with two home runs and four RBIs in 17 at-bats. Allen’s status as of now is listed as day-to-day, it looks like he avoided any serious injuries.
