Scott said back injury is "minor"

21

July

Rays designated hitter Luke Scott left Friday's game in the 10th inning due to right-mid back tightness.

Scott said he first felt it during a check swing, but doesn't think it's that bad and hopes to return by Sunday.

While it would appear to be concerning, especially considering Scott missed 17 games last month, Scott reiterated that this one is "completely different" than his previous back injury.

"The last time it was like back spasms where I couldn't breathe and I couldn't move, so this is much less," Scott said. "I believe this is going to be something minor."
