Dan Jennings expects Adeiny Hechavarria to be back in the lineup tonight. Hechavarria has been out of the lineup since last Friday, when he injured his shoulder in a collision with Christian Yelich. Hech went through all pre-game activities yesterday and was held out as a precautionary measure according to Jennings.

Jose Fernandez and Jared Cosart faced off against each other in an extended spring game in Jupiter yesterday. Each went three innings, with Fernandez striking out seven and Cosart striking out five. Cosart is expected to return to the rotation soon, while Fernandez's return is still some time in July.

Mat Latos threw a bullpen session yesterday and is scheduled to begin his rehab assignment later this week. Latos is recovering from knee inflammation.

Henderson Alvarez is expected to start playing catch next week. Alvarez is recovering from a right shoulder injury and his expected return remains uncertain.
