The sixth inning of today’s West Virginia Power game saw outfielders Harold Ramirez and Barrett Barnes go down with injuries.

Barnes came up favoring his right leg as he reached first base on an infield single to shortstop. It wasn’t apparent where the injury took place, although it looked like he grabbed the back of his leg when he hit the bag, which could indicate a hamstring injury. Barnes has a pretty bad injury history, and missed a lot of time last year in West Virginia with a hamstring injury. He left the game immediately, walking off on his own power.

Ramirez was injured running down the line on a fielder’s choice. He reached first base without a throw, but was pointing to the back of his leg after the play. Like Barnes, that means it could be a hamstring issue. Ramirez left the game, also walking off on his own power.

If both outfielders are injured with hamstring issues, then that would put the entire West Virginia outfield out with the same injury. Austin Meadows is currently recovering from a hamstring injury he suffered during Spring Training.

  1. Barnes is never going to make it if he can’t play 7 games in a row without missing a month. I t would be neat if they promoted De La Cruz for a short while
