Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Not playing Monday
Alfaro (chest) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Cubs.
Alfaro tweaked a chest muscle in Saturday's 10-3 win over the Phillies and will remain on the bench for a second straight day. Manager Don Mattingly suggested Alfaro was available as a pinch hitter Sunday, but he ultimately wasn't summoned from the bench. The Marlins are viewing the backstop as day-to-day for the time being; Mattingly noted that he's optimistic Alfaro will return to the lineup Tuesday, according to Andre Fernandez of The Athletic.
