PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Ke'Bryan Hayes left Thursday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals due to an apparent injury.
The Pittsburgh Pirates' third baseman was removed from the game in the bottom of the first inning on Opening Day with a spasm of the left forearm, the team announced. Hayes, who missed two months of last season with a wrist injury, was taken off the field after trying to catch a popup in left field at Busch Stadium.
The team said Hayes is day-to-day. He was replaced at third base by Diego Castillo.
The Pirates and Hayes are reportedly working toward a long-term contract extension. The reported eight-year deal is worth $70 million, Robert Murray of FanSided reported Thursday.
