• Redmond is being careful not to overwork Jeff Mathis, who has been handling a bulk of the catching duties. Rob Brantly got the start on Wednesday night, catching Tom Koehler. Mathis will be back in the lineup on Thursday afternoon to handle rookie phenom Jose Fernandez. The 12:35 p.m. ET series finale on Thursday will not be on television in South Florida, but will be on MLB.TV.
• Casey Kotchman, on the disabled list since June with a left oblique strain, is close to playing rehab-assignment games. Chris Coghlan (back nerve irritation) has been doing baseball activities in Jupiter, Fla., but he is not close to seeing game action.
