Cardinals center fielder Bader slowed by right hamstring

To avoid running Harrison Bader into a more severe injury and lengthier recovery, the Cardinals rested their center fielder Sunday in the series finale at Estadio de Beisbol Monterrey and will reevaluate his ailing right hamstring Monday, in Milwaukee.

Bader felt a “tightening” in his right leg during an eventful eighth inning Saturday against Cincinnati in the Mexico Series. Bader had an attempted diving catch, a throw from the warning track to third base, and another play where he sped to back up right fielder Tyler O’Neill and had to pivot quickly when the ball glanced off O’Neill’s glove.
