• Gonzalez said that outfielder Jordan Schafer was not yet ready to go out on a rehab assignment to test the right ankle contusion that has plagued him since he fouled a ball off his ankle on June 26 in Kansas City.
Schafer took batting practice for the first time since landing on the disabled list on Wednesday in Miami, but before Thursday's game, he told reporters he was still unable to run and that he didn't anticipate being ready to come off the DL when he becomes eligible next week at the start of a three-game series against the White Sox after the All-Star break. Schafer made two hobbled pinch-hit appearances during last week's series against the Marlins at home before being placed on the DL on July 4.
