Benitez out for at least another day

The back is still giving him problems.

Lower back stiffness won't land right-hander Armando Benitez on the disabled list, but it will likely keep him sidelined a couple of days. The Marlins don't plan to use Benitez until Wednesday at the earliest after he struggled through his past two outings.

Backs are funny.  But the only way I see him landing on the DL is if Hanley has to go there first.  If that happens, the club will need to bring Andino up to be backup at short and Carroll to play center, especially after that "impressive" defensive display Linden put on last night.
