Cleveland Guardians rookie Steven Kwan exits with right hamstring tightness, considered day-to-day

NEW YORK -- Breakout rookie Steven Kwan was pulled from the Cleveland Guardians' game Sunday with right hamstring tightness.

Manager Terry Francona said Kwan's removal from a 10-2 loss against the Yankees was "kind of was preventative" and that the outfielder was day-to-day.

Kwan felt cramping in his hamstring after flying out in the third inning. He was replaced by Ernie Clement in left field for the bottom of the inning.

The 24-year-old Kwan crashed into the outfield wall chasing a ball Saturday and was shaken up, but he remained in the game. Francona said before Sunday's game that Kwan was "a little beat up" but well enough to play.

The 5-foot-9 sparkplug is batting .341 with a .456 on-base percentage in the first 14 games of his career.
