• Veteran Reed Johnson continues to make his case for a reserve outfield spot, going 5-for-5 on Monday in Miami's 11-1 win over New York. The Marlins pounded out 19 hits.
Johnson got a break in the first inning, as TV replays showed he was out by less than half a step on a grounder that was snared by third baseman David Wright. Wright almost robbed Johnson in the fourth inning on a similar play, though replays showed that Johnson was safe -- barely. Johnson hit four singles and capped his afternoon with a double.
• Jose Fernandez threw a simulated game on Monday on Field 2 at Roger Dean Stadium.
• Nathan Eovaldi will throw a simulated game on the backfield on Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. ET. Jeff Mathis is scheduled to catch him. In addition, some regulars -- including Garrett Jones and Stanton -- are expected to get a few at-bats on the Minor League fields.
