• Lonnie Chisenhall (fractured right ulna) made his first rehab start with Triple-A Columbus on Sunday, going 1-for-3 with a single. Chisenhall will finish the regular season with the Clippers on Monday before heading to Double-A Akron to continue rehabbing with them during their postseason. Acta still expects him back before the season ends.

"As soon as he's done with the rehab over there in Akron, he's going to be over here playing," Acta said.

• Reliever Carlos Carrasco, who has been out since undergoing Tommy John surgery last season, will throw a simulated game in Akron on Monday before making a one-inning rehab appearance Wednesday in Akron.
