Cubs lefty Mike Montgomery will start on Monday against the Pirates as he essentially replaces Yu Darvish in the rotation, at least for one outing. Darvish (right triceps) went on the DL on Saturday pushing Tyler Chatwood up to pitch on Sunday, leaving Monday open for Montgomery who will make his first start of the season.

Aaron Boone says Gleyber Torres is being given the day off after banging up a knee when he dove for a liner in Friday night's game. "He's OK ... don't think it's a big deal," Boone said. Torres is available to the Yankees today if need be.

Aaron Boone still sees brighter days ahead for his starters. He called the rotation a major influencer in that 17-2 run earlier this year. "They were consistently giving us quality outings. We've hit a little bump in the road here this last time and a half through or so, but no reason for me to think they won't turn it around and get that rolling again. That's the key to everything. If we can get our pitchers to consistently get us to that sixth inning and beyond, then our bullpen sets up and we feel like our offense can take it from there. I believe they'll turn it around and get rolling again."

Daniel Mengden needed just 102 pitches to throw his second career shutout, this time at the D-backs' expense. While using his changeup more than in any other start so far this season, he struck out struggling Snakes slugger Paul Goldschmidt three times among his 5 K's -- twice on fastballs.

Russell Martin was hitting just a buck-54 (with a .599 OPS) when he laced the first Blue Jays hit of the game on Aaron Nola's 113th pitch.

In his no-hit bid through six before the rain delay, Aaron Nola has everything working, notching 10 strikeouts with four different pitches -- his four-seam and two-seam fastballs, his changeup and his curve, and getting six swinging K's with all but the two-seamer.
