|Jeff Mathis unavailable Wednesday with sore thumb |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/25/13) Marlins catcher Jeff Mathis is unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Phillies due to a sore right thumb, the Sun Sentinel reports. Mathis suffered the injury in early September and ended up sitting out for seven games.
"We've played a lot of games here and he's been grinding it out pretty good," manager Mike Redmond said. "Hopefully with the day off he'll be back. We'll see."
Mathis is just 1 for 23 since returning from the initial injury last week.

|Jeff Mathis back in lineup Monday |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/16/13) Marlins catcher Jeff Mathis, who missed the last week because of a right thumb bruise, returned to the lineup Monday at Philadelphia, bumping Koyie Hill to the bench. Mathis, a strong defender behind the plate, is batting only .196 this season.
|Jeff Mathis missed the start of last season recovering from a collarbone injury and would eventually serve as the backup to Marlins starting catcher Rob Brantly once he was activated off the disabled list in mid-May. However, Mathis would eventually take over as the starting catcher once Brantly struggled to perform with an everyday role. It's not like Mathis was better offensively, batting just .181 with five home runs and 29 RBI in 73 games. However, he's never been a great offensive catcher. He has just a career .195 average in nine MLB seasons. Mathis has stayed around the majors this long despite a horrid batting average because of his defensive abilities. However, the Marlins added catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the offseason, meaning Mathis will be relegated to backup duty in 2014. He had marginal Fantasy appeal to begin with, so continue to leave him off rosters.
