You know we'll give him a nice two week rest where will make sure he's -- ready for the rest of the season and says. That is always up to take its take his place. Better news Adrian Gonzales gonna try it today yeah agents. You know in the weight room right now -- -- matter of the medical room. They said that the spasms have bowl. Left and he's gonna take batting practice that we have to make a late scratch we will but. As it is right now seasonally. How about Ryan Sweeney years who we were surprised he was not available to pinch hit last night with a hamstring problem.
