Elvis Andrus left Friday night’s interleague game at home against the New York Mets after getting his hand caught under him as he slid into second headfirst, stealing his 22nd base of the season, in the bottom of the fourth inning. He was replaced in the top of the fifth by Andres Blanco. Prior to the injury, he was 2-for-2 with one sacrifice bunt and a single run batted in aside from his stolen base.
Initial diagnosis is just a strain in his left wrist. He’ll have further examination to determine the severity of the injury, but hopefully he’ll only miss a day or two. We’ll update as soon as we have more information.
UPDATE 6/24 Postgame: Elvis Andrus is day-to-day according to Ron Washington in the postgame interviews. “He’ll be fine,” Washington comments. He doesn’t believe that he’ll go the DL. Andrus says that he isn’t concerned too much, but they’ll take it one day at a time because it is sore.
