*This is Mike Leake’s first game vs. the D-Backs. Leake spent his college career a few minutres away at Arizona State.

*Johnny Cueto will start a rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville on April 16, assuming his two innings in Goodyear on Monday go without incident.

*Homer Bailey, slated to throw Tuesday in Goodyear, will have a tentative start on April 17 for Louisville assuming all goes well for him as well. More on both guys later on

*Scott Rolen, with a seven-game hitting streak, is playing the day game after a night game. Dusty Baker tries to pick his spots with the days off for Rolen.

β€œIt just depends on how many consecutive days if we have off days in between, the time of the game is important,” Baker said. “Last night’s 5:10 game made it easier for me to play him today.”

Rolen’s next expected day off is Wednesday. Thursday is a scheduled off day for the team.
