CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago Cubs left fielder Alfonso Soriano left Monday’s game against the Houston Astros after straining his left quadriceps after trying to beat out a grounder in the first inning.

A few feet from first base, Soriano pulled up holding his left thigh. After limping off the field, Soriano was replaced in left field by Blake DeWitt in the second inning.

Soriano came into the game hitting .273 with 12 homers and 29 RBIs. Soriano will have an MRI.

The Cubs had already placed utility infielder Jeff Baker on the 15-day disabled list earlier Monday, a day after putting Reed Johnson on the DL with back spasms. Johnson is hitting .367 with two home runs and 18 RBIs in 34 games.
