Worth noting

• Bud Norris was with the team in Oakland on Sunday and will be activated prior to his start on Monday against the Angels.

• Showalter would ideally like to find spots on Sunday to use his relievers who have not pitched since the All-Star break. On Saturday, he removed Wei-Yin Chen after five innings in part to give the bullpen more work.

"It's a factor," he said. "I would like to get [T.J. McFarland] out there, I'd like to get [Ryan] Webb out there, I'd like to get [Brian] Matusz out there."
