Worth noting

• In his first rehab game with Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Kyle Blanks (left calf strain) went 1-for-2 with two walks and a run.

• Twins' lefty Tommy Milone, traded by the A's on July 31, will be recalled from Triple-A to start Monday in Houston.

"It's nice that he is called up," Melvin said, "because I believe he's a big leaguer."
