Pudge out for next several days with back pain

Pudge has “tenderness” in his lower back and will miss the next several games in the hope that rest will cure the ailment.  Wil Nieves filled in for him on Saturday and is probably going to start behind the plate for the majority of Washington’s upcoming three-game set with the Giants.

The veteran Rodriguez is batting an impressive .325/.351/.439 this season with one home run, 16 RBI and two stolen bases in 123 at-bats.  Nieves, meanwhile, is 11-for-54 (.204) in limited action.
