Phillies 3B Alec Bohm out again with hamstring tightness

Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm was out of the starting lineup for Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the New York Mets for the second time in three games because of left hamstring tightness.

Bohm had an MRI on Wednesday, and the Phillies were awaiting the results. Philadelphia manager Rob Thomson said it was too soon to tell whether Bohm might land on the injured list.

Bohm sat out Sunday night's loss in Atlanta because of the same issue. Philadelphia was off Monday.

Edmundo Sosa started at third Wednesday and batted ninth, hitting a homer off Carlos Carrasco.

Thomson said Bohm felt discomfort Tuesday night after fielding a slow roller. He played the entire game and went 0-for-3 in a 2-0 loss to the Mets.

Bohm is batting .265 with six homers and a team-high 37 RBIs this season. He has a .724 OPS.
