• The KIA Tigers, a professional baseball team based in Gwangju, South Korea, purchased the contract of Triple-A New Orleans left-hander Duane Below on Wednesday. The deal will be finalized pending a physical.

Below is 6-7 with a 2.55 ERA in 17 starts in the Minors. He has twice been recalled to Miami this season, compiling a record of 0-1 with a 10.12 ERA in 2 2/3 innings of relief with the Marlins.

• Ed Lucas made his second career start at shortstop on Wednesday. Redmond decided to give Hechavarria the day off.

"He's been grinding pretty good not only since the All-Star break, but really since he came back being healthy," Redmond said. "Just give him a blow, a mental day, whether he feels like he needs it or not. I think he needs a break.

"We'll give him a day and get him back in there [Thursday]. Sometimes, just a day to kind of sit back and relax a little bit to re-charge your batteries helps a lot."
