Extra bases

Emilio Bonifacio's home run on Saturday was his first in 412 at-bats, which ended the longest active streak in the Majors for a position player. His last homer was July 30, 2013.

According to Elias, Tony Gwynn Jr. is next with 389 at-bats and Cubs catcher John Baker is third at 382 at-bats.

"I just found that out today," Bonifacio said Sunday of his streak. "It didn't feel that long."

• The Cubs are continuing to be conservative in regards to Jorge Soler's rehab from a hamstring injury. Soler, who has seven at-bats at Double-A Tennessee this year, was rehabbing at the Cubs' complex in Mesa, Ariz.

"He is on the field, he's taking [batting practice], he's seeing a lot of pitches," said Jason McLeod, director of player development and scouting. "We're just really getting him nutrition, hydration, making sure he's properly hydrated. So that one might be a little while."
