Rays Catcher Hurts Himself During Home Run Trot

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.
