JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - Miami Marlins first baseman Casey Kotchman has received four stitches to close a cut on his left ring finger after running into a pop-up machine during infield drills.
Manager Mike Redmond says Kotchman would be evaluated Tuesday.
Redmond said Monday that ``after the evaluation ``we'll see where we're at, hopefully it won't be more than a few days.'' The manager says Kotchman was injured when he ``tried to get around the machine and grabbed onto it and I guess cut his finger somehow.''
Kotchman signed a minor-league contract with Miami on Friday. Known for his defense, Kotchman has a career .262 average with 71 homers and 387 RBI in nine seasons.
