DH Luke Scott is not in tonight’s lineup against the Mets because of a stiff lower back, Rays manager Joe Maddon said.

Scott hasn’t started since June 5. He pinch-hit Saturday night against the Marlins, reached on an error and stole second base. Maddon said the injury occurred at some point during that at-bat.

“He is day-to-day. To not mislead, I’m really not sure (when he will return),” Maddon said. “He feels better today than he did yesterday, but he’s not 100 percent.”

Also, Zobrist is not in tonight’s lineup but that is, according to Maddon, due to a fever and not the sore right hand that kept him out of Tuesday’s game.

“He may be available tonight, I’m not sure,” Maddon said. “The hand is still sore, but it’s not the issue. The issue is he’s not well.”
