Worth noting

• Logan Morrison went 2-for-5 and scored two runs at designated hitter in his third rehab game with Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday, raising his average to .273 (3-for-11). But McClendon said the outfielder/DH remains "a ways away" from being ready to rejoin the club.

• Rookie Dominic Leone's 1.33 ERA was the fifth best among all American League relievers going into Monday's games.
