• Jared Hughes (shoulder inflammation) is scheduled to throw his second bullpen in five days on Tuesday; Hughes threw 25 pain-free pitches, mostly fastballs, in Friday's session.

• Jose Tabata (strained left oblique) could be days from rejoining the Bucs. He went 2-for-3 with Indianapolis on Friday, is scheduled to play nine innings Sunday and be re-evaluated after a couple of additional rehab games with Indianapolis.

• Travis Snider, who came out of Friday night's game with a bruise after fouling a ball off his foot, was kept out of the lineup as a precaution, but he said he'd be able to come off the bench if needed.
