Fletcher (hamstring) will not travel with the club for its upcoming series with the Athletics, and he may not return before the season ends, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Fletcher was diagnosed with a strained left hamstring after coming up lame on his lone hit Sunday. The Halos' second baseman will be re-evaluated Monday, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the rookie shut down with just 12 games left on the schedule. Kaleb Cowart -- who entered Sunday's contest in place of Fletcher -- should absorb the majority of starts at the keystone.
Fletcher led off and went 3-for-4 with a double, a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to Texas.
Fletcher moved into the leadoff spot with Kole Calhoun getting the day off and showcased his contact and speed in the brief lineup promotion. The rookie infielder has been heating up at the plate, batting .342 (13-for-38) with two stolen bases over his last nine contests. Fletcher's power has been absent (just one extra-base hit over that span), but he is proving that he can be a table-setter in front of the Halos' sluggers.
Fletcher exited Wednesday's game against Arizona with a left knee contusion.
Fletcher left the game after fouling a ball off his knee. He's considered day-to-day. The Angles have a day off Thursday, so it's possible that he'll be rested enough to play Friday against the Astros.
Fletcher went 3-for-5 with a triple, two RBI, a run scored and a strikeout in Tuesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.
Fletcher singled home a run in the third inning and came around to score in the frame, then later provided a game-tying triple with two outs in the seventh. The 24-year-old is riding a seven-game hitting streak -- with multi-hit efforts in five of those -- to bring his slash line to .278/.321/.381.
Fletcher went 2-for-4 with a double, three RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 11-7 win over the Rangers.
Fletcher stepped into the box with the bases loaded in the fourth inning, and proceeded to drive in all three baserunners with a double off of Martin Perez. The rookie has taken over at second base for the Halos, starting 16 of the club's 17 contests in August. Fletcher isn't providing much in terms of power (.357 slugging percentage), but he should continue to get everyday opportunities to prove his worth down the stretch.
