Worth noting

• Class A Hickory infielder Joey Gallo remains sidelined with a strained groin muscle and the Rangers remain unsure if he can play in the All-Star Futures Game on Sunday in New York. Catcher Jorge Alfaro, the other Rangers prospect selected for the game, had to back out of the game because of a broken hand.

• Pitcher Justin Miller has been promoted from Double-A Frisco to Triple-A Round Rock. He was 1-0 with a 6.19 ERA in 16 appearances after missing all of last season because of Tommy John elbow reconstruction surgery.

• Washington on using Profar in the outfield: "It's still an ongoing process. He's certainly making himself more valuable going out there and being serviceable. The more opportunities we give him to go out there and chase balls, the more comfortable he'll get."

• Adrian Beltre hit his 20th home run on Tuesday night. He is now one of six third basemen who have hit 20 or more home runs in at least 11 seasons.
