Jarrod Dyson started in right field and Drew Butera at catcher Sunday. Alex Riox and Salvador needed a day

off, Yost said.

There will be more of that this week.

Yost said he plans to give center fielder Lorenzo Cain off Monday, and he’ll rest third baseman Mike Moustakas on Tuesday. Left fielder Alex Gordon will get a day off sometime later this week.

"These guys have been going every single day," Yost said. "I need to find ways to give them a break."
