Worth noting

• X-rays revealed no break in the right foot of Rockies first baseman Jason Giambi, who fouled a pitch off the foot Wednesday before hitting a double against the Padres. Giambi didn't start on Sunday but was available for pinch-hit duty.

• Utility man Eric Young Jr. was sent to the team's complex in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Sunday for three days to work back into condition. Young was on the MLB bereavement list from May 5 through Saturday, as his grandfather died after a stroke. The bereavement period expired Saturday, but the Rockies were able to move Young to the restricted list so they don't have to send him into action without having some preparation.

• Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario, who went 1-for-2 with a double Saturday night, has nine extra-base hits among his 12 total hits this season. His .580 slugging percentage went into Sunday leading National League rookies with at least 50 plate appearances.
