The Seattle Mariners are currently taking on the Minnesota Twins and hold a 5-2 lead in the bottom of the seventh inning.
Now during today’s game against Minnesota, utility man Corey Hart was forced to leave the game with an undisclosed injury after attempting to steal second base according to Shannon Drayer on Twitter.
Hart hurt on that stolen base. Coming right out, didn’t even wait for the trainer.

He tweaked his hamstring during the fourth inning and he immediately headed towards the dugout before the trainers could even make it onto the field. Hart has been plagued with leg injuries over the last couple of seasons which resulted in the Milwaukee Brewers parting ways with the veteran. According to Bob Dutton on Twitter, it was revealed that Hart was diagnosed with a strained left hamstring and will be re-evaluated on Monday.
