Zobrist leaves game with lower back tightness



Update 8:45 p.m. Rays say Ben Zobrist left the game due to lower back stiffness and is "day-to-day."

Developing: Sean Rodriguez has replaced Ben Zobrist in centerfield to start the fourth inning against the Tigers.

There has been no update from the Rays yet on why Zobrist left the game.

The Rays are already without CF B.J. Upton, who sprained his left ankle in Tuesday's game. He's expected to be out until at least Saturday or Sunday.
