Worth noting

Cliff Lee, who is out with left elbow strain, was not cleared to start throwing after meeting with Phillies medical staff on Monday. He was scheduled to be re-evaluated in three days.

• When asked about Brown's listless outfield play on Sunday, including a ball in which Yasiel Puig stretched a single into a double, Sandberg said Brown lacked the proper urgency.

"I think it was not paying attention of who hit the ball or see him get out of the box," Sandberg said. "The defense there is to charge and give it up quick and hit the cutoff man. It needed to be towards home plate, because there was a man on second, and he froze. Just a little sense of urgency and seeing the runner and who he was, was needed."

• Sandberg has been encouraged by the play of Cesar Hernandez at third in place of the injured Cody Asche.

"This is a time for him to get a look over there," Sandberg said. "I wondered how he would react, but he's been fine over there. He's shown some good footwork, and he's shown off a strong arm. For him to play that side of the diamond -- some third and some short -- it will help him with his role on the team."
