JENNINGS SITS WITH SORE GROIN: Manager Joe Maddon said before Friday's game that outfielder Desmond Jennings would not start Friday and could possibly not start Saturday as well, as he is dealing with a sore groin.

"Playing on our turf a lot, you have to be careful with him," Maddon said.  "All of our speed guys have had it in the past.  I always try to be vigilant with them with their legs, especially at home."

Maddon did say he is available to play if needed.
