Worth noting

• Double-A Frisco third baseman Tommy Mendonca was named Texas League Player of the Week on Monday while teammate Nick Tepesch was named Pitcher of the Week. Medonca batted .533 with two homers and six RBIs last week. Tepesch allowed two hits in seven scoreless innings in a victory over Tulsa last Friday.

• Colby Lewis began treatment Monday as he recovers from the Tommy John surgery he had last month to repair a torn flexor tendon in his right elbow. He was 6-6 with a 3.43 ERA in 16 starts before his season ended.

• There is no timetable for Mike Napoli's return to the Rangers' lineup. He was placed on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring Aug. 11 and took batting practice on the field before Monday's game against the Orioles.

• Class A Spokane third baseman Joey Gallo went 3-for-5 with two homers and seven RBIs in a 16-4 win over Tri-City on Sunday, including a grand slam in the eighth inning. The 39th overall pick in this year's Draft, Gallo has 20 home runs since his pro debut June 20, the most of any player in baseball over that period of time.

• Triple-A shortstop Luis Hernandez extended his hit streak to 15 games on Sunday, while Spokane outfielder Royce Bolinger extended his to 20 games.
