"He didn't say anything so I didn't really ask him," Baker said. "He seemed like he was getting around pretty good ... so it was just a matter of precaution and trying to keep him healthy. He's starting to play better, starting to feel better."
Right-hander Joe Ross also left Wednesday's game after throwing two innings because of a blister on his right middle finger. Baker was unsure whether it would force Ross to miss his next start, scheduled for Tuesday against the Phillies, but the club has begun to look at other options for that game based on how Ross feels.
"I've inquired on what to do for it," Baker said. "We have like three or four different scenarios. I've got to go over what [pitching coach Mike Maddux] drew up for our possible rotation. We'll go over it. Lot of it depends on how [Ross] feels and how the other guys feel."
