Guillen scratched for at least one game
Royals manager Trey Hillman says the stiffness starts in Guillen's lower back and runs up his entire left side. Guillen has been playing through the off-and-on problem, but Hillman decided to give him some time off with the team set to play 15 straight days.
Guillen is hitting .257 with eight homers and 33 RBIs.
