Worth noting

• Shortstop Marwin Gonzalez was not in Friday's lineup, as he was still nursing a slight strain of his right hamstring. Porter did not appear concerned and expected Gonzalez back soon.

• Double-A pitcher Jake Buchanan entered Friday leading the Texas League with a 0.77 ERA. He has allowed opponents to hit just .181 off of him and threw five shutout innings on Thursday.
