Cryptic comment of the day
Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista, right, implied he knows something about Fernando Rodney the others don't, as he improved to 4-for-7 against him. "I think I have a different approach than everybody else," Bautista said. "I feel pretty comfortable at the plate when he's on the mound. That's pretty much all I can say about that."
RHP Jose Fernandez, the 20-year-old rookie from Tampa's Alonso High, is scheduled to start for the Marlins on Monday at the Trop.
