Worth noting

• X-rays came back negative on the right hand of catcher Anthony Recker. Recker took a foul tip off his right thumb in Saturday's 5-3 win against the Pirates.

Travis d'Arnaud started behind the plate on Sunday, and Collins said Recker would be available, but he hoped not to have to use him in the series finale. Recker is hitting .209/.254/.327 in 38 games this season.
