"Hech has had the same re-occurring thing as last year," manager Mike Redmond said. "He gets treatment on it every day. Sometimes it flares up."
Ed Lucas made the start in place of Hechavarria, who is listed as day to day.
Prior to Saturday, Hechavarria appeared in 72 games. Only Giancarlo Stanton (74) and Casey McGehee (73) have been in more.
The 25-year-old is batting .272 with 10 doubles and three triples. In the past week, he hit either second or eighth in the lineup.
