Manager Aaron Boone said LeMahieu has a strained triceps, though the infielder isn't expected to require a trip to the injured list, Max Goodman of SI.com reports. The skipper called the news "encouraging," as LeMahieu may remain out of the lineup Sunday for the third straight contest, but he's expected to be available off the bench. The 33-year-old didn't appear as a reserve Saturday, though he hit a single as a pinch hitter Friday.
LeMahieu (triceps) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Marlins. The infielder is omitted from the lineup for a second straight day as he deals with a minor triceps issue, although he did enter Friday's contest as a pinch hitter. LeMahieu figures to be available off the bench Saturday as well, but it's unclear when he'll be back in the lineup. Rougned Odor is starting at second base and batting sixth.
LeMahieu (triceps) singled in his only at-bat during Friday's 3-1 win over Miami. The infielder was kept out of the starting nine due to the triceps issue, but manager Aaron Boone called on him to enter the game defensively after Gleyber Torres was ejected in the seventh inning. LeMahieu played the remainder of the contest and contributed an infield single in the ninth inning. Given his ability to finish off the game, it's unlikely that LeMahieu will miss much more time.
LeMahieu will not start Friday against the Marlins while dealing with a minor triceps issue, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. The exact nature of the injury is unclear, but it doesn't appear to be more than a day-to-day problem. The recently acquired Anthony Rizzo will start at first base, with Rougned Odor at second.
