• The Marlins are off on Monday, and on Tuesday they will play a "B" game at 11 a.m. ET on a back field. Jacob Turner will start that game. At 7 p.m. Tuesday, Miami will face Team Venezuela in an exhibition game at Roger Dean Stadium. Wade LeBlanc is starting, and top prospect Jose Fernandez is scheduled to throw an inning of relief.
• Casey Kotchman went 3-for-4 on Sunday, and he's batting .636 in Spring Training. "He's had some great at-bats," manager Mike Redmond said. "For a guy who has missed a little time, he's come on strong."
Kotchman missed about a week in camp because he sustained four stitches in his left ring finger. Kotchman and Joe Mahoney are competing for the first-base job.
• Gorkys Hernandez had been hitless in Grapefruit League play, but the speedy center fielder had an RBI double on Sunday. He is now 1-for-13.
