Walker Scratched with Back Tightness

BRADENTON, Fla. — Second baseman Neil Walker was an early morning scratch from the lineup for today’s 1:05 game at McKechnie Field against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Walker, 26, was scratched due to lower back tightness.

Walker said today that his lower back was a little tight during Tuesday’s 7-4 win over the Yankees,  got worse afterwards.

For precaution this early in spring training, Walker is day-to-day but will likely be held out of games for the next two to three days.

Josh Harrison will replace Walker in the lineup today batting seventh.
