Boston's Steve Pearce exits Friday's game after suffering back spasms

Boston Red Sox utility-man Steve Pearce (back) is considered day-to-day after leaving Friday's game against the New York Yankees.

What It Means:

Pearce experienced back spasms on Friday and was replaced at first base by Michael Chavis. Look for Eduardo Nunez to potentially see more playing time if Pearce needs time to recover.

In 89 at-bats this season, Pearce is hitting .180 with one home run and nine RBI.
