Player Notes
Grant Balfour notched his first since July 1 in Friday's win over the Blue Jays.

Advice: Jake McGee pitched the eighth inning and Brad Boxberger was apparently unavailable, so Balfour got the call to protect a 1-0 lead. He was pretty sharp, retiring the side in order while recording two strikeouts. Still, we're not expecting Joe Maddon to make a habit out of this down the stretch.
