Atlanta Braves center fielder Ender Inciarte will miss four to six weeks after straining his right hamstring while running the bases Friday.

It's the second serious injury this year for Inciarte, who returned July 27 from a lumbar strain that sidelined him for 55 games. He hopes to return before the end of the regular season and be ready for the postseason.

Inciarte is the latest everyday Braves player to get hurt, joining Nick Markakis, Austin Riley and Dansby Swanson.
