• Right-hander Luke Gregerson and left-hander Fernando Abad, who Melvin didn't use Tuesday to prevent overuse, were available out of the bullpen Wednesday. Gregerson had pitched in three consecutive games, and Abad, who Melvin said "is up all the time," had warmed up three different times Monday night.
"[Abad] will never say anything, but you want to make sure you're not overdoing it down there," Melvin said, adding that both Abad and Gregerson lobbied to pitch Tuesday.
