• Headley was not in the lineup for the third consecutive game Saturday with a stiff back. He first suffered spasms in the back in Tuesday's loss to the D-backs. The third baseman hasn't played since, though he made big strides before yesterday.

Black said Headley didn't make "a whole lot of progress last night." Logan Forsythe got the start at third base on Saturday.
