Baltimore Orioles center fielder Cedric Mullins left Monday’s game against the visiting Cleveland Guardians in the eighth inning and was diagnosed with a groin strain, according to manager Brandon Hyde.

Mullins, 28, hit a ground ball to shortstop and slowed down short of first base while grabbing at his right upper leg. He left the game immediately after a quick visit from a member of the team medical staff. The Guardians won 5-0.

“It’s the last thing you want to see,” Hyde told reporters after the game.

Mullins is expected to go on the injured list, although no official move has been made. No injury timetable was given.

Mullins was 0-for-2 with two walks in Monday’s game and is batting .263 with eight home runs and 39 RBIs in 53 games for Baltimore this season. He is a career .263 hitter with 61 home runs and 189 RBIs in 483 career games over six seasons for the Orioles.
