• Geovany Soto played third base for one inning in the ninth inning while Murphy pitched Tuesday night. Soto had never played third base in the Majors, but appeared there three times in the Minors, the last time being 2003 at Class A Daytona. He is the 126th player to play third base and the ninth to play there just for one inning.
• Soto grew up playing third base in Puerto Rico before being moved to catcher. That's the same path that his idol, Ivan Rodriguez, took in Puerto Rico. Rodriguez played third base until he was 15 before switching to catcher. Said Soto, "I think a lot of our infielders in Puerto Rico tend to fill out. But we have good hands. I think that's why you have some notable Puerto Rican catchers get to the big leagues."
• The Indians have announced that Corey Kluber, Zach McAllister and Ubaldo Jimenez will pitch against the Rangers during their three-game series that starts Monday at the Ballpark in Arlington. All three are right-handed.
