Miguel Cabrera (collarbone) went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts in his return to the lineup Sunday against the Twins.

Cabrera didn't play Saturday after leaving Friday's game with a bruised collarbone. The 34-year-old has struggled coming out of the All-Star break and owns an uncharacteristic .256/.346/.422 batting line with 12 homers and 47 RBI over 83 games this season.

J.D. Martinez (hand) drew a walk as a pinch-hitter Sunday against the Nationals.

It was his first appearance in a game since being hit in the left hand with a pitch in his first game with the Diamondbacks last Wednesday. It seems like he's trending in the right direction.

Chad Bettis (cancer) allowed three runs over 2 2/3 innings Sunday in his latest minor league rehab start with Triple-A Albuquerque.

Bettis, who previously made two starts with Double-A Hartford, allowed six hits and two walks while striking out four. He was pulled after throwing 62 pitches. The results weren't the best, but Bettis is feeling good as he continues his comeback from testicular cancer. "Physically, I felt good and strong. I felt like I could've thrown a lot more," Bettis said after Sunday's outing. "But I worked on what I need to. I felt like I was able to execute some of the pitches that I really wanted to, but at the same time, it seemed like there's some stuff to work on." Bettis is slated to throw 75-80 pitches in his next rehab start on Friday before being reevaluated. He should join the Rockies' rotation at some point in August.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Brandon McCarthy (blister) won't make his scheduled start on Tuesday and will be heading to the disabled list.

Kenta Maeda will start in his place on Tuesday against the Twins. McCarthy dealt with blister issues in each of his previous two starts and the club wants to make sure he gets rid of the problem before he takes the hill again.

Randal Grichuk went deep for the third consecutive game on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Cardinals to victory over the Cubs.
