• Abraham Almonte sat out Wednesday's game after leaving in the eighth inning of Tuesday's loss to the Astros. Wedge said the rookie callup was not injured and that the team was just being cautious.
"Yeah, his legs were a little stiff, and I didn't want to take any chances with it," Wedge said. "Figured with the off-day tomorrow we'll keep him out today, and hopefully he'll be ready to go. I think he could play today, but we've still got a couple-plus weeks left of baseball, so I don't want to take a chance and push him, especially when [speed] is such a big part of his game."
