Jenks exits with back spasms

Bobby Jenks exited Thursday night’s game with the Twins with back spasms after facing three batters in the top of the ninth inning. Jenks retired Alexi Casilla on a pop up, but then gave up a single to Denard Span and walked Orlando Hudson on four pitches.

After walking Hudson, White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen could be seen asking Jenks from the dugout if he was ok. Guillen and White Sox head athletic trainer Herm Schneider came to the mound and Jenks soon departed. The right-hander was inactive this past weekend in Baltimore due to back soreness but pitched a scoreless inning in Tuesday’s loss.
