Lower back tightness forced Cubs first baseman Frank Schwindel out of Friday’s game against the Braves.

The Cubs first baseman came limping in trying to bat a fly ball to third base in the second inning. He received medical attention from manager David Ross and trainer PJ Mainville.

“He’s in a bit of pain,” Ross said after the game. “We will check it out [Saturday]. He has already received three cycles of treatment. Still a little stiff in the back. We’ll see how he wakes up [Saturday].”

Schwindel was able to get away on his own. PJ Higgins replaced him at first base. at the start of the third round.

Schwindel dealt with back stiffness in spring training. He entered Friday with a .238/.283/.388 record with eight home runs and 33 RBIs in 61 games this season.

He also made two pitching appearances last week, including Wednesday’s blowout loss to the Padres.
