Worth noting

• As anticipated, Stolmy Pimentel went on the 15-day DL Friday, turning over his roster spot to Axford. Pimentel sustained a "minor sprain of his right ankle" during his Wednesday outing in Detroit.

• Good friends (from their days together as New York Mets players) Ron Gardenhire (73) and Clint Hurdle (46) rank one-two in career ejections among active Major League managers.
