CHICAGO -- Blake DeWitt said he was fine and ready to contribute one day after he was a late scratch from the starting lineup.

Scheduled to get his first start of the season Sunday, DeWitt was pulled from the lineup at the last minute because of back spasms. Darwin Barney was back in the lineup in his place.

DeWitt shrugged when he was asked if he was feeling fine Monday, moments after taking some swings in early batting practice. “It was only back spasms,” he said.

Manager Dale Sveum was a little more clear on the situation saying that DeWitt wasn't completely 100 percent but he was good enough to be available off the bench as a pinch hitter.
