Scott leaves with tight hamstring, hopes to be back soon



DH Luke Scott left Sunday's game after one at-bat due to tightness in his left hamstring but said he hopes to miss only a few days.

"My hamstring just got a little tight,'' he said. "Just precautionary stuff, didn't want to mess with it."

Scott said it happened while running during his first at-bat. "I ran, came back to the dugout and it was just a little bit tight,'' he said. "Hopefully I'll be back in a couple of days."

Scott, who reported to camp stronger and healthier than last season when he was recovering from shoulder surgery and ended up on the DL twice, didn't think it was anything serious.

"The muscle's just tight," he said. "I think cold day, a little bit of fatigue from working my legs, I worked my legs pretty hard this week. I've had stuff like this many times before. I'm not worried."
