Worth noting

• Catcher Rob Brantly will get a couple of days off to rest a sore right index finger. The 23-year-old cut his finger recently, and he has played periodically through it. It affects his throwing mostly. Miguel Olivo is expected to start on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon.

• Placido Polanco, who has started in eight straight games at third base, will get a breather on Wednesday afternoon. Because the team has been short-handed with Donovan Solano's injury, Polanco has played steadily. Miami is off on Thursday, so Polanco will get two straight days off.
