Blevins out with back spasms

OAKLAND -- A's Left-hander Jerry Blevins was deemed day-to-day Thursday after exiting Wednesday night's game with back spasms.

The 26-year-old reliever, who left an 0-2 count to New York's Curtis Granderson in the hands of teammate Tyson Ross in the eighth inning Wednesday, felt slightly better Thursday morning but was still stiff and planned on receiving treatment.

"It still feels tight," the southpaw said. "But hopefully it won't keep me out too long."

Blevins entered Thursday tied for third in the American League with eight games pitched and two wins.
