Manager Mike Redmond says Kotchman would be evaluated Tuesday.
Redmond said Monday that after the evaluation "we'll see where we're at, hopefully it won't be more than a few days." The manager says Kotchman was injured when he "tried to get around the machine and grabbed onto it and I guess cut his finger somehow."
Kotchman signed a minor-league contract with Miami on Friday. Known for his defense, Kotchman has a career .262 average with 71 homers and 387 RBIs in nine seasons.
