• Infielder Logan Forsythe, who hasn't started a game since Wednesday, was available to pinch-run Tuesday, though manager Bud Black was unsure when he will return to the lineup, as he's recovering from a sore left abdomen.

Forsythe participated in full on-field drills before Tuesday's game against Texas. He took batting practice and ground balls. "He's getting better," Black said. "You could see him in a game ... if warranted. He can run. He wants to play, but he's been honest about how his side feels."
