Pina sits for the second game in a row Monday against the Cubs.

Erik Kratz starts over Pina for the fifth time in seven games. Pina is hitless over his last two games, but Kratz is hitless over his last five. That said, Kratz has had some big hits in big spots over the last few weeks and is an excellent pitch framer. The two should see roughly the same amount of playing time down the stretch, but Kratz appears to have a slight edge at the moment.
