"Pete's closer every day," Showalter said. "He's closer to being able to be used today. But if for some reason he wasn't today, if he's not a player Tuesday, we'd have to look at something else. But I'm hoping that by the time we get going in the game, he's available today. We felt like with [left-hander Blake] Snell starting today, the potential of [left-hander Anthony] Banda pitching last night, that we were willing to wait on him. I'm hoping at the very worst he's a player on Tuesday."
