Collin Cowgill was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to back tightness.
Cowgill has been battling the ailment for a few days. He's day-to-day. Matt Joyce has taken his spot in the lineup.
Jason Heyward (hip) remained out of the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.
He's now sat out two straight contests with tightness in his left hip. Heyward is considered day-to-day. Randal Grichuk is getting another start in right field.
Carlos Ruiz is not in the Phillies' lineup Sunday.
He's just getting a breather. Cameron Rupp is filling in with Ruiz on the bench.
Chase Utley is not in the Phillies' lineup Sunday.
Cesar Hernandez is at second base with the opposition starting a lefty (Gio Gonzalez). Utley has hit just .146/.245/.293 versus southpaws this season.
Ryan Howard is not in the Phillies' lineup Sunday.
He's on the bench with the Nationals throwing southpaw Gio Gonzalez. Darin Ruf is at first base in Howard's place.
Avisail Garcia (knee) is back in the White Sox' lineup Sunday.
Garcia hasn't played since Thursday due to inflammation in his right knee, but he apparently feels well enough to give it a go in this one. The 23-year-old is hitting a nifty .319/.359/.451 with four homers this season.
Maicer Izturis (groin) suffered a right shoulder injury during his rehab assignment with High-A Dunedin on Saturday.
Izturis was playing in his fifth rehab game and felt a pop in the shoulder when he dove for a ball. He underwent an MRI, but the results are not yet available. Izturis has been limited to 11 games since the start of last season due to injury.
Eric O'Flaherty (shoulder) is nearing a rehab assignment.
He'll throw another bullpen session on Monday and could be cleared for game action at that time. O'Flaherty has been on the shelf since early May with left shoulder inflammation.
