[7/31/2016] Ryosuke Hirata out of starting line-up with lower back discomfort

Ryosuke Hirata left last night’s game on defense in the eighth inning because of discomfort in his lower back. He was left out of the starting line-up tonight as a precaution (he worked through back issues earlier this year in June and missed two games). He is considered day-to-day.
