Looper scratched from start with muscle tightness
PHOENIX (AP) - Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Braden Looper was scratched from his start against the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday because of a tight oblique muscle.

Looper was warming up in the bullpen Saturday when the muscle tightened.

He said it "felt funny," and even though he felt he still could throw he didn't want to take a chance.

He first felt a twinge earlier in the week after sneezing.

Looper was signed as a free agent just before the start of spring training. He was 12-14 with a 4.16 ERA in 33 starts last season for the St. Louis Cardinals.

The 10-year veteran has been durable throughout his career. He missed only 12 games in 2007 with a shoulder injury and three others in 2002 for personal reasons.
