Notebook: Doumit day-to-day with hamstring injury
A day after making his first start at first base, Ryan Doumit missed Sunday's game against the Nationals with an injury to the upper portion of his left hamstring. He is day-to-day. Doumit said the injury was in the same spot on the hamstring that caused him to go on the disabled list last month. He suffered the injury while running out a ground ball in the seventh inning Saturday night. Doumit rejoined the Pirates on Wednesday after undergoing a rehab stint at Class AAA Indianapolis.
"He's one of the more prominent sports figures Canada's ever produced," Bay said of Nash. "In Canada, it's probably hard to understand the level of his accomplishments because hockey is so big up there. I mean, Larry Walker is from Canada and he won the National League MVP (1997) and I don't think too many people really took into account how impressive that was. But I think the people in Canada are starting to come around to just how special Nash is."
