Hampton is making a comeback after two elbow injuries. There was no immediate word on why he was pulled out of his start Thursday night, but he was seen grimacing after making a warm-up pitch in the bullpen.
Jeff Bennett started in Hampton's place in the game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The scheduled 7:10 p.m. start of the game was pushed back about 10 minutes.
