"Shows up today, he's just sore," Francona said. "He got a bruise, it's kind of below his kneecap, above his shin there on the top of his shin. He just has a good old-fashioned good bruise, but he's OK."

Relief pitcher Andrew Miller will throw off flat ground again on Thursday at noon. Miller has been out since the end of May with inflammation in his right knee.

Francona had no new news on outfielder Bradley Zimmer, saying that "we're still a ways away" from knowing his status. Zimmer hurt his shoulder while taking batting practice with Triple-A Columbus back on June 13.

A concrete update on Zimmer will come Friday when the Tribe returns to Cleveland, per Francona.
