What’s on tap for Sunday, June 1

In case you missed it…


Rookie RHP Rafael Montero was demoted to make room on the roster Triple-A reliever Buddy Carlyle, who was needed after Terry Collins used every available relief pitcher in Friday’s 14-inning game.


Daisuke Matsuzaka will replace Montero in the starting rotation. His next scheduled start will be Wednesday at Wrigley Field.


Juan Lagares was scratched from Saturday’s start with a rib-cage issue. He pinch hit later in the game. He said the injury is “nothing bad.”
