Did you know?

Recently acquired INF Drew Sutton replaced injured INF Jeff Keppinger (broken right toe) on the roster Monday, after Keppinger was put on the disabled list. The two have been linked before: Sutton was part of a trade from the Reds to Houston on March 31, 2009, for Keppinger.

Masked men

Always entertaining RHPs Fernando Rodney, left, and Joel Peralta were a little more intimidating Monday, wearing gladiator-like masks while sitting in the dugout.
