• Gonzalez said he expected outfielders B.J. Upton and Jordan Schafer to begin Minor League rehab assignments later this week. Upton has been on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right adductor muscle since the weekend before the All-Star break, while Schafer is dealing with a stress fracture in his right foot, sustained after he fouled a ball of his ankle in late June.

• Left-hander Paul Maholm was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Monday with a left wrist contusion, retroactive to July 21, to make room for Brandon Beachy's return to the rotation. Maholm will be eligible to be activated on Aug. 5.
