"It's been bothering him for a while, and he thought the rest was going to help him," Collins said. "And it's stiffened up on him a little bit. We're going to give him a couple of days' rest, use him late in the game if we need him. But, as I told him again today, I'd rather have him on the bench than have him start the game -- especially in this humidity -- and have it cramp up and have to pull him out in the third, because then it really shortens the moves you can make."
Said Duda: "It's nothing major. 'Skip' gave me the day today, and I should be ready to pinch hit or whatever happens. Like I said, it's not a big deal. A couple of days it should be ready to go."
