CLEVELAND (AP) - Indians third baseman Jack Hannahan is out of the lineup for the fourth straight game with lower back soreness.

The team said Thursday that an MRI revealed mild back inflammation. Hannahan, who hasn’t played since Sunday, remains day-to-day. He missed a week in spring training with back soreness.

Jose Lopez started at third base against Seattle.

The team said it will provide an update on pitcher Josh Tomlin on Friday. Tomlin was scheduled to have a second MRI on his injured right wrist Thursday. He is wearing a protective sleeve over a splint along his right wrist and forearm.

Tomlin has not pitched since going 7 1-3 innings in a no-decision against the Chicago White Sox on May 7.

Right-hander Zach McAllister, who has taken Tomlin’s spot in the rotation, started Thursday’s game.
