Athletics' Sean Manaea: Scratched from Saturday start
Manaea was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday against the Rangers with a minor back issue, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The good news is the ailment doesn't appear to be anything overly serious: The club later characterized the issue as "upper-back tightness." Manaea is hoping to make his final start of the season next week. Raul Alcantara will step in to start Saturday in his place.
