Worth noting

• Jeff Karstens (strained right hip flexor) threw a bullpen session Saturday. Assuming no complications during the two intervening rest days, he will throw a simulated game in Cincinnati on Tuesday -- the same day Kevin Correia starts against the Reds.

• Travis Snider (strained right hamstring) resumed taking batting practice prior to Saturday's game. He and Jose Tabata (left foot contusion) were tentatively available off the bench.

• Andrew McCutchen's streak of reaching base against the Cubs ended at 40 straight games on Friday. He went 0-for-3 -- twice robbed on sensational outfield catches.
