LSU center fielder Andrew Stevenson tweaked his left hamstring during Friday's game against Mississippi State, the school announced.
LSU coach Paul Mainieri told reporters after the game that it "doesn't look serious," according to Ross Dellenger with The Advocate.
LSU took him out of the game to start the bottom of the fifth inning. Before that, he singled in the fourth inning and ran the bases, reaching third on a hit by Chris Chinea. That's reportedly when the injury occurred.
Mark Laird moved from right field to center in his place, and Beau Jordan entered the game in right.
Stevenson likely won't play in the series finale Saturday. Usual designated hitter Chris Sciambra will likely move into the field in Stevenson's absence. Danny Zardon, who started at DH on Thursday, would likely replace return to the lineup.
Stevenson is one of the top defensive outfielders in the country. He had a diving catch earlier in Friday's game to prevent extra bases. Those highlight reel plays have become almost routine for the junior that figures to be an early selection in this summer's MLB Draft.
Stevenson entered the game with a .349 batting average, third on the team among regular starters. He went 2-for-2 with a double, walk and RBI before coming out of Friday's game.
