As Rays catcher Curt Casali rounded the bases Tuesday night for his 10th home run of the season, his hamstring tightened up. Anyone watching the game witnessed a man limp around the bases in pain while trying not to appear like he was pimping his homer.

Rene Rivera replaced Casali during the game. Via the AP:

“It was really weird,” Casali said. “It’s never happened to me. I’ve never seen it. It stinks right now. On top of a loss, it’s not a good day.”


Casali’s scheduled to get an MRI today.
