Marlins' Kotchman injures finger, needs stitches
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.
