MYERS OK TO GO, DEJESUS' FOOT IS FINE:  Outfielder Wil Myers said Friday that he felt a stomach bug coming on during batting practice Thursday, which is why he was scratched from the lineup against Toronto.  He said he was feeling better Friday, which is why he is in the lineup tonight.

Meanwhile, outfielder David DeJesus said his foot feels fine after running out a triple and a double while playing at designated hitter Thursday.  The outfielder missed a pair of games after being hit in the foot by a pitch Tuesday.
