Third to first

Jose Abreu is expected back in action for Monday's game in Peoria against the Mariners. Abreu has missed the last two games with soreness in his left ankle, but there seems to be no level of concern that the injury is serious.

Jose Quintana faced the minimum 15 Rockies batters over five innings Sunday, allowing one hit, after not retiring any of the nine Oakland hitters he faced last Tuesday. It was a confidence builder for the southpaw.

"It never happened in my career, all nine and nobody out," Quintana said. "I need to continue my working. … And I have more confidence now."

• Both Nate Jones (five games) and Daniel Webb (three games) had their scoreless appearance streak end Sunday.
