Worth noting

• James Darnell made his first rehab appearance on Monday with Triple-A Tucson, going 1-for-4 with a double and two strikeouts in the No. 3 spot in the order. He served as the team's designated hitter.

The utility man is working his way back from a strained left oblique injury that he aggravated during Spring Training.

• Black said right-hander Brad Brach would not be available for Tuesday night's game against the Cubs. Brach faced five hitters in a lengthy eighth inning on Monday, surrendering two hits but striking out two. He has pitched three consecutive days.
