Gerrit Cole may have a hamstring issue, and the New York Yankees can only hold their breath.

The Yankees ace exited Tuesday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays with left hamstring tightness, the team announced during the game.

Cole was pulled in the fourth inning after signaling to the dugout that he had a problem. At that point, he had struggled through 3.2 innings, allowing five hits and three runs (two earned) while striking out two and walking two.

Any time missed for Cole would be brutal for the Yankees, who currently sit in the first wild-card position, but are just a half-game ahead of the Boston Red Sox and 3.5 games ahead of the Seattle Mariners to make the playoffs at all.

Cole entered Tuesday as a legitimate Cy Young contender with a 2.73 ERA in 155 innings and the AL lead in wins (14), strikeouts (215) and WHIP (0.968).
