Another big blow for Ian Stewart.
According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, the talented 26-year-old third baseman pulled a hamstring Wednesday while playing for Triple-A Colorado Springs. He’s likely to be sidelined for the next two weeks, and maybe longer.
Stewart has been demoted to the minors twice this season because of his ongoing struggle to produce at the major league level. In 52 big league plate appearances this season, he has managed just two singles, one double, 18 strikeouts and five walks. With zero home runs. That all rings out to an ugly .064/.154/.085 batting line.
The hamstring injury isn’t going to help Stewart’s mission to return quickly to Denver.
