Edwin Encarnacion is getting a day off. He's 9-for-53 over his last 14 games with only four RBI.
"I think he needs a day," Dusty Baker said. "I told him last night and he didn't fight it, so you know he needs it."
Ryan Freel is 7-for-17 off Penny.
Paul Janish or Hairston is a tough call. Janish had the big game yesterday. But Hairston is hitting .500 (7-for-14) in his last four starts with a double in each game. I know his career numbers aren't very good, but he seems to bring a lot energy to the lineup.
"I've two guys going good," Baker said. "That's a good situation."
