Worth noting

Special to MLB.com

• On Saturday afternoon, the Phillies outrighted Brad Lincoln to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Acquired in a trade for Erik Kratz, Lincoln is ostensibly going to Lehigh to work on a two-seam fastball to go with his four-seamer. The move leaves the Phillies with 39 players on their 40-man roster.

• The Phillies were waiting to hear about left-hander Cole Hamels, who was making a rehab start Saturday with Class A Clearwater. He could make just one more rehab start before rejoining the Phillies' rotation April 22.

• Sunday marks the five-year anniversary of the passing of Phillies broadcasting legend Harry Kalas. Kalas, who entered the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2002 as the Ford Frick Award honoree, worked as the Phillies play-by-play man from 1971 until his death in 2009.

Freddy Galvis got his first start at third base since his return from the disabled list on Friday with a left knee infection. In turn, Cody Asche didn't start, but Sandberg stressed it was all about getting Galvis some game time.
