MILWAUKEE — Wilson Valdez said he's never had hamstring problems before and that's why he attempted to stay in Saturday's game after injuring his left leg.
"I was trying to," Valdez said. "But if I hit, I don't think I would have been able to run to first base. If I tried to run hard, I would pull it."
Despite that, Valdez said he does not think the injury will sideline him for long. He said he could be ready by Monday, although the team has not said anything definitive about Valdez's injury.
It's notable only because Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins are already out of the lineup. So Charlie Manuel will field a double-play combo of Pete Orr and Michael Martinez in Sunday's series finale against Milwaukee.
