Worth noting

• Black said shortstop Everth Cabrera is close to going on a rehab assignment as he recovers from a left hamstring injury. Black hoped Cabrera could join Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore on Wednesday. Cabrera has been out since Aug. 10 with the injury.

• Joaquin Benoit's sore right shoulder will keep him sidelined for now, but Black is confident the reliever will pitch again this season. Black said the soreness is just due to wear and tear, and it is not a serious injury.
