• Josh Donaldson started at DH for the second time in the past week on Sunday, having started 119 of the previous 122 games at third base. Alberto Callaspo made the start at the hot corner on Sunday afternoon.
"He's a guy that's been out there defensively every single day all year for the most part," Melvin said of Donaldson. "Now that we have Alberto here, who's a very good third baseman in his own right, we're able to do that some."
• Coco Crisp (left wrist) is still on track to return to the starting lineup on Monday for the first time since Aug. 11.
