• Cubs pitcher Matt Garza will make his second rehab start Monday for Triple-A Iowa when it hosts Oklahoma City. Garza, sidelined with a left lat strain suffered in mid-February, is scheduled to throw at least three innings.
This will be the first of at least three Minor League outings for the right-hander, who missed all of Spring Training because of the injury, which he suffered during a live batting practice session.
• On Sunday, Japanese reliever Kyuji Fujikawa threw one inning in a Minor League rehab outing, and he struck out two batters while walking one. He threw 21 pitches, 11 for strikes. It's his first game action since April 13. He's been sidelined with a strained right forearm.
• Sunday, Monday and Tuesday marks the first time in nearly 53 years that three different teams will visit the Cubs at Wrigley Field in three days. After Sunday's series finale against the Reds, the Cubs host the Rangers Monday night to make up an April 17 rainout, and then they entertain the Cardinals on Tuesday.
The Cubs last hosted three teams in three days at Wrigley Field Aug. 21-23, 1960, when they played a doubleheader vs. the Giants on the first day, then hosted the Reds on Aug. 22, before starting a series vs. the Pirates on Aug. 23.
• Catcher Welington Castillo had a bruise on his left ankle after he was hit by a pitch in the second inning Saturday but was not seriously injured. Castillo may have helped his recovery by staying in the game. However, he did not start on Sunday.
