Worth noting

• The Cubs recalled right-hander Blake Parker from Iowa on Sunday to fill out their 25-man roster. Parker has posted a 1.44 ERA with 18 saves in 19 chances this season.

• Renteria said Carlos Villanueva, who started Saturday's 13-0 loss to the Nationals and lasted only two-plus innings, will probably return to the bullpen. Villanueva has been both a reliever and a starter for the team this season.
