The two-time All-Star said he felt a little tightness after Sunday's game against Pittsburgh and had a precautionary MRI on Monday night. ''We're checking it today to see what I have,'' Encarnacion said Tuesday. ''It's something I want to make sure it's right. ... I want to do that before I continue my work.'' Analysis: Manager John Gibbons expects the first baseman-designated hitter to return to the lineup in about a week. ''It's just irritation, you know, a lot of swings early in camp,'' Gibbons said. ''There's no damage in there.'' Encarnacion hit .268 with 34 homers and 98 RBIs in 128 games last season, hindered by a right quadriceps injury throughout the second half. He is hitless in six plate appearances in spring training.
