Gentry exits but says hamstring will be 'fine'

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Rangers right fielder Craig Gentry left Saturday's game in the bottom of the fifth inning with tightness in his left hamstring.

Gentry said he was somewhat surprised to see Kyle Hudson trotting out of the third-base dugout to replace him in right field and was able to jog back into the dugout with relative ease.

"They saw me out there stretching and just decided to play it safe and get me out of there. ... It'll be fine," Gentry said. "I should be in there tomorrow."

Gentry said he may have tightened up a little bit in his prior at-bat -- a groundout to third base -- but didn't expect it to hold him back at all in the coming days.

"He was out there grabbing his hamstring, but when he came in, he said he was fine," manager Ron Washington said. "I had already made the move and I didn't want to take any chances."
