Hiroyuki Nakajima: (Hamstring) DL Stint Likely
Update: Manager Bob Melvin said Nakajima (hamstring) will likely open the season on the 15-day DL, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Recommendation: The team won't make an official decision on his status until Sunday. Nakajima has already been ruled out for this weekend's exhibition series against the Athletics, so a DL stint wouldn't be especially surprising. The Athletics appear poised to enter the season with Jed Lowrie as the everyday shortstop.
