- Triple-A Columbus outfielder Matt LaPorta sat out last night's game because of a tweaked hamstring that he hurt during the game on Sunday. He is day to day.
- Recently acquired left-hander Scott Barnes has been promoted from High-A Kinston to Double-A Akron. He is expected to make his first start with Akron tomorrow (Wednesday).
- Barnes is replacing right-hander Bobby Livingston in the rotation, and Livingston is in Triple-A Columbus though not yet activated. He could be activated to backfill for a potential callup (Rondon? Carrasco?) who may soon no longer be with the team.
- Right-hander Jason Knapp is expected to make his organizational debut tonight for Low-A Lake County. Left-hander Nick Hagadone will go tomorrow for Lake County. Both pitchers are on three inning or 50-pitch counts, whichever comes first.
