Danny Hultzen found himself in a familiar, but unexpected place Tuesday night -- out of the Tacoma Rainiers' lineup.
Hultzen was scheduled to start Tuesday's game for Tacoma against Colorado Springs. But the former Virginia lefty was scratched from that start as a precaution because, according to the Rainiers, he couldn't loosen up.
Hultzen just rejoined the Rainiers last week after missing almost two months of the season with a strained rotator cuff. He pitched six shutout innings and struck out six for Tacoma last Thursday, earning a win over Las Vegas.
