Tigers’ Willi Castro exits early vs. K.C. with left hamstring strain

Detroit Free Press

Digging for a double, Detroit Tigers utility player Willi Castro pumped the brakes halfway between first and second base.

Castro reached for his left hamstring upon reaching second base safely with two outs in the fourth inning. Trainer Doug Teter checked on Castro and removed him from the game with a left hamstring strain.

The severity of his injury is unclear.

Castro, 25, is batting .241 with 15 walks and 82 strikeouts in 112 games.

He bounced back from a miserable 2021 season, and the Tigers continued to expand his defensive versatility. This year, he has started 36 games in right field, 23 games in left, 14 games in center, 11 games at second, seven games at shortstop and three games at third.
