Josh checking in from the clubhouse…
Jerry Manuel just said David Wright will sit tomorrow. Manuel thought Wright looked fatigued tonight, and told the 3B after the game he needed to take a day off.
â€œI just think thatâ€™s the necessary move to freshen him up,â€ Manuel said.
Wright handled it well although he doesn’t think he needs it. He has started all 75 games, DHing one and played 3B in the other 74.
â€œI feel good, just the normal fatigue you feel on June 23rd,â€ Wright said. â€œJerryâ€™s got a great baseball mind. If he thinks I need a day off, Iâ€™ll rest up a little bit and hopefully come back fresh for Wednesday.â€

Hernandez had X-rays that came up negative. He expects to make his next start.
