Scott exits early with tightness in hamstring


PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Luke Scott left Sunday's game against the Twins after feeling tightness in his left hamstring.

"My hamstring just got a little tight," said Scott, who started the game at DH and left for a pinch-hitter in the fourth. "Just precautionary stuff, didn't want to mess with it."

Scott flew out to right field in the second inning in his only at-bat. He said he began to feel the tightness while running.

"I ran, came back to the dugout and it was just a little bit tight," Scott said. "Hopefully, I'll be back in a couple of days."

Scott, who missed 45 games in 2012 due to time on the disabled list, didn't think the tightness was anything serious.

"The muscle's just tight," Scott 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."
