Worth noting

• Shortstop Jonathan Villar (right thumb) returned to the lineup on Tuesday after a precautionary night off on Monday.

"He had an extra day of treatment, and it obviously helped," Porter said when asked how hard it was to rest Villar on Monday when sinkerballer Dallas Keuchel was pitching. "When it comes to injuries and player safety, I always try to be on the side of caution."

• Right-hander Asher Wojciechowski (strained right lat), who's been on the disabled list since March 21, will make a rehab start on Wednesday for Triple-A Oklahoma in a morning game at New Orleans.
