Luke Scott pulled from game due to left hamstring tightness

From Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times comes word that Rays designated hitter Luke Scott was lifted from Sunday’s game against the Yankees after feeling tightness in his left hamstring.

Scott was 0-for-1 before being replaced in the Rays’ batting order by backup catcher Stephen Vogt.

Scott had three hits in four at-bats in Saturday’s 8-6 defeat of New York and is batting .500/.571/.667 through seven total plate appearances this year. The Rays are calling him “day-to-day,” which likely means he’ll miss a game or two before returning to action by the middle of this week.
