Infielder/outfielder Danny Santana was still sore after leaving Monday's game with left hamstring tightness. He wasn't in the lineup for the first game Tuesday.

Infielder Nick Solak was selected from Triple-A Nashville and was in the starting lineup as the designated hitter for the opener to make his major league debut.
