Worth noting

• Third baseman Chris Johnson was out of the lineup Monday after being hit in the left hand by a pitch in Sunday's game. X-rays of the hand were negative and Johnson had a heavy wrap on the hand.

"It's a little sore today," Johnson said. "We've had it wrapped up, tried to treat it a couple of times today to get the swelling out of there. Then when the swelling gets out of there we can see how sore it is. It's just day to day. Hopefully in a couple of days I'll be ready to go."

• Outfielder Gerardo Parra jammed his right hand sliding into home plate in Friday night's game. He swung Monday for the first time since the injury happened and seemed to be all right.

• Second baseman Aaron Hill was out of the lineup Monday with an upper respiratory flu that has been going around the clubhouse.

• Third base coach Matt Williams was stricken with a case of the stomach flu following Sunday's game, but despite manager Kirk Gibson's offer to give him the night off, Williams insisted on being in the third-base coaching box.
