DH Luke Scott was pulled in the 10th inning of Friday’s 4-3, 14-inning win against the Mariners because of right mid-back tightness.

Scott said it is not as bad as the back injury that sent him to the disabled list for 17 days last month.

“Completely different,” he said. “The last time was like back spasms where I couldn’t breathe and I couldn’t move, so this is much less. I believe it’s going to be something minor.”

Scott said he suffered the injury while checking his swing during a ninth inning at-bat the ended when he lined out to left field.

“It’s frustrating, but I’m believing by faith that I’m going to have a good report (today), and that everything is going to be alright.”
