Mahtook leaves after taking on wall

Biscuits outfielder Mikie Mahtook is "banged up a little," manager Billy Gardner said, and may not play Wednesday after running into the wall Monday at Mobile.

Mahtook, playing right field, left in the seventh inning of Monday's opener after running into the wall on a Nick Evans triple. Mahtook didn't play Monday's second game, just the second game he's missed all season. He also didn't play in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.

"He had some aches and pains. Nothing serious," Gardner said. "We'll see how he feels after the off day and he might sit out Wednesday. We'll see."

The Biscuits, after an off day Tuesday, start a home series with Pensacola on Wednesday.
