Yankees’ Cameron Maybin strained calf rounding bases after teammate’s home run

New York Yankees

Cameron Maybin had a stroke of rather unfortunate luck during Friday’s game against the Houston Astros.

The New York Yankees outfielder strained his calf in the third inning as he rounded third base following teammate Gary Sanchez’s home run, per Lindsey Adler of The Athletic. Maybin, who had singled and was on first immediately before the homer, said afterwards that he felt a “pop” in the calf.

To add insult to literal injury, Sanchez’s blast was a no-doubter, meaning that Maybin’s injury came on a slow trot around the bases.

The veteran Maybin, who is hitting a stellar .308 with five homers and 14 RBIs in 41 games this season for the Yankees, will now be headed to the IL.

As for his injury, while unlucky, it is actually not unprecedented for baseball.
