A bad stay at home due to injuries got a bit worse on Tuesday night when the Dominican Willy adames, shortstop and spark plug Milwaukee Brewers, leaders of the NL Central, departed the team’s series opener against the Cincinnati Reds as a precaution after hurting your left quadriceps in the first entry.
Adames sparked a scoring rally for the Brewers with a one-out double, but looked committed to getting to second base. He advanced on Christian Yelich’s single before scoring on Avisaíl García’s sacrifice fly, then left the game. The Brewers say he had a sore left quadriceps and decided to call the decision to take him out of the game precautionary:
The Brewers acquired Adames from the Tampa Bay Rays on May 22 and made him a fixture in their lineup. Including Tuesday, he had started all but three of the Brewers’ 82 games since his arrival, and he appeared in all but one of those games. He is cutting .295 / .379 / .547 with 17 homers in a Brewers uniform and leads the Brewers with 3.6 fWARs.

Adames is the fourth Brewers position player to leave a game at this house. Tyrone Taylor injured his right oblique on Friday against the Washington Nationals and Eduardo Escobar injured his right hamstring on Sunday against the same opponent. The other was veteran reliever John Axford, who has already been out for the rest of the year. Both Taylor and Escobar landed on the 10-day disabled list.
