Worth noting

• Reddick (wrist) hit off a batting tee Saturday and took Sunday off. After taking some more swings, he will most likely be sent to Sacramento for a rehab assignment. He is eligible to come off the DL on Wednesday, though it is doubtful he will even start a rehab assignment before then.

• Jaso is available for pinch-hitting duties for only a day or two longer. He was hit by a pitch on his right shin bone, and it continues to cause him some trouble when he squats to catch.

"It's not worse; it's not great," Melvin said.

• Crisp was still feeling his way back into the swing of things since returning from a stint on the DL with a left strained hamstring. Melvin said there was an urgency to get him back in the lineup because he "makes everybody feel better."
