The hamstring issue that Brewers infielder Luis Urias has been dealing with appears to be very minor, and he could be back in the lineup as early as Tuesday, according to The Athletic's Will Sammon.
It sounds like the Brewers are just being cautious with the young infielder and he should be back in the lineup soon. Urias struggled in 2020 but is competing for a starting spot in the infield in 2021.
Brewers infielder Luis Urias exited Friday's Spring Training game as a precaution after experiencing discomfort in his left hamstring, according to the team.
Urias, who plays every infield position except first base, checks in between 50th and 60th at each of his respective positions in the latest expert consensus draft rankings. In 124 games over the past three seasons, the now-23-year-old has posted a .226/.315/.320 slash line with six home runs, 38 walks, and 98 strikeouts.
Brewers GM David Stearns says that the team is considering having Luis Urias be their everyday third baseman in 2021.
Urias made 20 starts at the hot corner this summer after coming up as a middle infielder in the minors. Urias has raked throughout his recent time in the minors but that hasn't translated to big league success. 2021 could be a defining year for the former top prospect.
Luis Urias went 3-for-6 with two doubles, two runs, five RBI in Wednesday's 19-0 win over the Tigers.
Urias recorded his first extra-base hit since August 28th. He broke out of his mini slump by smacking two doubles in Thursday's blowout win. The 23-year-old has now recorded a hit four of his last five contests. Urias is slashing .286/.355/.357 slash line with four doubles, a triple, 10 runs, 11 RBI and two stolen bases in 25 games this season.
Luis Urias went 3-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Cubs.
Urias has now recorded back-to-back three-hit games. He has been on a tear since being activated from the injured list, slashing .474/.500/.348 with four RBI across 19 at-bats. Urias has been starting at second base recently and playing -everyday. The 23-year-old should be owned in all league formats.
