Scott gets treatment on left hamstring


PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- A day after leaving a game with tightness in his left hamstring, designated hitter Luke Scott stayed behind at the Charlotte Sports Complex as the team traveled to Fort Myers to play the Red Sox.

Scott is unsure how long he'll be out of action.

"[I] don't know," Scott said as he headed off to the trainer's room. Shouldn't be long."

Scott flew out to right field in the second inning in his only at-bat Sunday against the Twins. The veteran said he began to feel the tightness while running, so he left the game.

Manager Joe Maddon does not believe Scott's hamstring is going to be a problem, but he did allow that questions about his concerns for Scott were understandable given the fact he missed 45 games in 2012 due to time on the disable list.
