Padres' Eric Hosmer: Out with back tightness Sunday

Hosmer is not in the lineup Sunday against the Giants due to lower-back tightness, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Hosmer will sit out a second consecutive game due to an apparent bout with back tightness. It doesn't sound like it's anything overly serious, so he should tentatively be considered day-to-day. Chase Headley draws the start at first base Sunday, while Hosmer will look to hopefully get back into action Monday against the Dodgers.
