Worth noting

• McCutchen lengthened his throwing to approximately 120 feet prior to Sunday's game as he continued to "add to and ramp up," per Hurdle, his rehab workouts.

General manager Neal Huntington, calling McCutchen's recovery process "fascinating," said the DL is not a consideration for him because it will be a net gain if he returns to play earlier than the 15-day DL period.
