“Maybe doubtful tomorrow, but I don’t think it’s enough to where we have to worry about long term,” manager Bob Melvin said.
Reddick left Sunday's game due to lower back tightness. He believed he injured his back while making a play on a foul ball.
“It’s a lot better than when it initially happened,” Reddick said. “My back locked up and started spasming out. After the play I went back and watched it. From what I gathered, it looked like it happened from me avoiding the ballboy, who didn’t move one bit. … Nothing serious. Hopefully it’s something that’s just day to day. I’m sure with Bob (being cautious), I probably won’t start tomorrow. I’ll get some more treatment done so I’ll be ready to go Tuesday.”
Nuno last started a game on July 5, but it was for Triple-A Tacoma during a brief demotion.
“It’s just another day,” he said. “Now I just have to go 80 to 100 pitches and set the tone of the game.”
The Mariners are confident Nuno can provide the rotation some much needed rest.
“He can go five easily if we need him to,” McClendon said. “He’s very durable and he’s rested.”
Anderson allowed four hits and struck out three batters, but did not allow any runs in what was a solid performance.
Anderson is on the 15-day disabled list with a triceps injury.
Montero is out of commission with a thumb injury.
Utley is on the 15-day disabled list with an ankle injury.
