Associated Press - Ken Griffey Jr. left the Cincinnati Reds' game at Milwaukee after he strained his right hamstring while running down a fly ball in the fourth inning.
 

The Reds said the All-Star outfielder will return to Cincinnati to have an MRI on Sunday to determine the severity of the injury.
Griffey, 20th on the career home runs list with 501, chased down a fly ball hit into the right-center field gap by Brady Clark on Saturday. As Griffey neared the warning track in a full sprint, the ball bounced off his glove and ended up as a triple.

Griffey appeared to hurt his leg as he landed on it, but continued to track down the ball and walked off the field immediately after the play with no apparent limp.

He has been hampered by a series of well-documented injuries during the past few years.

Griffey missed more than a month with a torn hamstring that bothered him throughout the 2001 season. He spent two stints on the 15-day disabled list with a torn patella tendon and a torn right hamstring in 2002, then went to the DL twice again last year for a dislocated right shoulder and torn ankle tendon.

Last week, Griffey was voted an All-Star starter for the 12th time. He's hitting .251 with 20 homers and 60 RBIs, but has just one home run since hitting his 500th on June 20.

Hopefully he's not injured too bad. It's been nice having him around the whole season so far.

Griffey out of All-Star Game, on DL, with partial hamstring tear

MILWAUKEE -- Ken Griffey Jr. went on the 15-disabled list Sunday with a torn right hamstring and will miss the All-Star game.

The Cincinnati outfielder was injured Saturday night while trying to run down Brady Clark's fourth-inning drive to right-center in the fourth inning of a 5-0 loss to Milwaukee. An MRI exam Sunday revealed a partial tear of the muscle.

Griffey plans to go to Houston to participate in ceremonies, but will not take part in the Home Run Derby or Tuesday's game, Reds spokesman Rob Butcher said. He will be replaced on the NL roster.

Griffey was voted an All-Star starter for the 12th time last weekend. He missed more than a month with a torn hamstring that bothered him throughout the 2001 season. He spent two long stints on the 15-day disabled list with a torn patella tendon and a torn right hamstring in 2002, then went to the DL twice again last year for a dislocated right shoulder and torn ankle tendon.

All four active players with 500 homers had been scheduled to compete in Monday's Home Run Derby: Barry Bonds (681), Sammy Sosa (553), Rafael Palmeiro (540) and Griffey (501).

He's always in the derby too. Usually does pretty well. You gotta feel sorry for the guy. He was probably looking forward to it.

Durability is everything too. If you can't stand up to the long season, you were finished before it ever even began.
