Worth noting

• Castro singled to center with one out in the third inning on Monday to extend his hitting streak to 14 games, the longest active streak in baseball.

Castro now has eight hitting streaks of 10 or more games since the start of the 2011 season, tied with the Yankees' Robinson Cano for the most during that stretch.

Castro smacked a RBI single off the Reds' Mike Leake in the third for career hit No. 552.

• Cubs pitcher Matt Garza will make his second Minor League rehab start on Wednesday for Double-A Tennessee, weather permitting.

Garza, who suffered a strained left lat Feb. 17 and missed all Spring Training games, was scheduled to throw 45-50 pitches.

He threw a simulated game on Friday at Miller Park when the Cubs were playing the Brewers.

• Top prospect Jorge Soler has a 10-game hitting streak at Class A Daytona, and was batting .378 this season entering Monday.
