Ke’Bryan Hayes Exits Game With Cramping

Published

on

It’s not the start to the season the newly-extended Ke’Bryan Hayes or the Pirates were hoping for, but it seems there is no real serious cause for concern, but rather a precautionary measure.

In the bottom of the first, Hayes was removed from the ballgame with an apparent injury. According to FanSided’s Robert Murray, it turns out Hayes was taken out of the game with cramping to his left thumb/forearm and the injury is considered “very minor.”

That explains the unusual circumstances of his removal. It didn’t seem like anything occurred when Hayes struck out in his first at-bat of the year, or when attempted to dive for a popup in shallow left.

In regards to Hayes’ reported extension, the deal has not been signed yet and is still pending a physical. One would have to think that an injury such as this would not add any complications to getting that deal finalized.

Diego Castillo came in for Hayes at third base, marking his Major League debut.
