Indians’ Gonzalez hurts hamstring

July 29, 2001


— Cleveland Indians outfielder Juan Gonzalez is day-to-day after straining his left hamstring in the second game of a doubleheader aginst Detroit on Saturday.

Gonzalez, who hit a key homer in Cleveland's 6-4 victory in the opener, injured himself trying to beat out a grounder to third base. He was replaced in right field by Marty Cordova.

"He hurt himself on that grounder, and I didn't want to take any chances with him," Indians manager Charlie Manuel said.

The Indians training staff examined Gonzalez and found no serious injury. His return to the lineup is uncertain.
