• Hanley Ramirez was not in the lineup Sunday while he continues to recover from a hamstring strain. Mattingly said with the off-day Monday, it was a good time to give his shortstop a blow. Ramirez can hit and field, but doesn't have his full speed back and likely won't try to steal any bases until he's 100 percent.
• Left-hander Chris Capuano is still on track to start Wednesday against the Yankees. He hasn't pitched since May 29, and threw four scoreless innings for Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday night.
"Right now, we haven't had any setbacks," Mattingly said.
• With a win Sunday, the Dodgers would capture their seventh straight series against the Pirates.
