New York Yankees starter Bartolo Colon departed Saturday's 4-0 win against the Cleveland Indians in the seventh inning with a strained left hamstring.

 

"I don't think we'll really know until tomorrow," said Yankees manager Joe Girardi regarding Colon's status. "He pulled or stretched his lower hamstring. My guess is, he was trying to get over and push a little harder (because the grass was wet). I can't tell you exactly when he did it."

 

Colon came up limping while attempting to cover first base on a groundout by Shin-Soo Choo.

 

He left the game assisted by team personnel. David Robertson took over on the mound.

 

Colon picked up his fifth win of the season, allowing just two hits and a walk while fanning six over 6 2/3 scoreless innings.
