UPDATE 1:35 p.m.: We just received an e-mail saying that knuckleballer Tim Wakefield will start Sunday’s game against Felix Hernandez instead of Clay Buchholz.

Manager Eric Wedge said Miguel Olivo would get a day off sometime in this series. If it happens, it will be tomorrow. Olivo is in there catching and batting fourth. On this road trip he’s 8-for-18 with two homers and four RBI.

Jack Wilson is back at second base after being bothered by a scratched eye. He came in last night in the ninth inning for defensive purposes.
