• Outfielder Josh Reddick, hitting .155, received a rare day off against a right-hander on Sunday. That's because the right-hander, Baltimore's Miguel Gonzalez, entered the day with drastic splits against righties and lefties.
Through Gonzalez's first four starts, right-handers hit .341 with four home runs off him, while left-handers batted .190 with no home runs.
"Based on the fact Reddick's not swinging his best," Melvin said, "we wanted to get another right-hander in there. He'll be back in there tomorrow."
