New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes left Thursday’s game against the Atlanta Braves in the bottom of the fourth inning with an apparent injury to his left hamstring.

Cespedes hit an opposite double to lead off the fourth, but hobbled as he neared the second base bag and immediately left the game. The Mets are initially calling the injury a hamstring pull.

The Mets star just returned to the lineup on Wednesday after being out since April 20 with tightness in his left hamstring.

Juan Lagares came into the game for Cespedes.
