Josh Willingham sidelined

In case you were wondering why Josh Willingham didn't play, it was because of a sore wrist.

Marlins left fielder Josh Willingham was given the day off to rest a sore wrist.

Willingham was hit by a pitch Saturday, but told Gonzalez he felt good enough to play. Gonzalez said he just wanted to give Willingham a break to let the wrist ``get a little better.''

Also it never hurts to give a player a day off who is struggling at the plate, especially against Cole Hamels.
