BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) - Miami Marlins outfield prospect Victor Victor Mesa appears to have injured his right hamstring in a spring training game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Mesa pulled up and grabbed his hamstring while trying to beat out a ground ball in the sixth inning Sunday. He was removed from the game.

The Marlins signed the Cuban native to a $5.25 million bonus last October. The 22-year-old Mesa had not played in a game in nearly two years following his defection from Cuba.
