Feeling ill, Kubel a late scratch from lineup
MIAMI -- D-backs left fielder Jason Kubel was scratched from the starting lineup Monday with what the team said was an illness.

Kubel has been on a roll for Arizona, having hit safely in 11 of his past 12 games at a .404 clip.

He has also been impressive defensively, as he leads National League outfielders with six assists this year.

Gerardo Parra got the start in Kubel's place.
