Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk sustains groin injury Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2015) Cardinals outfielder Randal Grichuk is dealing with a groin injury sustained in the Sunday game against Atlanta. Its severity has yet to be determined, per MLB.com.

Mike Matheny said his removal after the sixth inning was merely "precautionary" and added that Grichuk probably could have played through the discomfort.

"We catch something early, it could save significant time," Matheny said. "We're going to get doctors to take a look at it and then evaluate."

Grichuk was unavalable after the game to explain when he sustained the injury, but a club spokesperson said via the medical staff that it was at some point while running the bases.

His potential absence would be a blow to the Cardinals. Grichuk has 11 home runs and 36 RBI in just 221 at-bats.

Grichuk is batting a ridiculous .438 with 11 RBI over his last 10 games (eight starts). 

"Impressive," manager Mike Matheny said, per MLB.com. "It's just impressive the kind of power he has. You start that day off in the eight-hole getting hit by a pitch, getting walked and still mixing in six RBIs with three hits from that spot in the lineup, that's impressive."

Prior to his three-hit game Tuesday, Grichuk was hitting .289 with three home runs and seven RBI in his last 10 games.

"I have some at-bats where I have some hiccups," Grichuk said, "but I've felt, in total, that I've been putting together some good at-bats lately."
