Chicago Cubs left fielder Alfonso Soriano will be sidelined for at least two weeks after pulling up lame as he tried to run from first to third on a single tonight against the New York Mets.
The team said Soriano suffered a strained right quadriceps.
Cubs manager Lou Piniella later revealed Soriano will be sidelined at least two weeks and up to a month.
Piniella says Soriano's loss will be a tough one for the Cubs.
Soriano had singled with two outs in the third for Chicago's first hit and then tried to go to third on a single by Ryan Theriot. But between second and third Soriano pulled up, favoring his right leg, and tried to hop to third base where he was tagged out easily. He was then helped off the field.
