Notes: Per Richard Durrett of the Dallas Morning News:
Vicente Padilla threw about 45 pitches today and said he felt better. He's slated to start Tuesday.
Padilla has been bothered by neck inflammation and has had his start backed up a few times recently. But it appears he's finally ready to go. If he hadn't been, the disabled list was an option.
Light showers continue to pass through the Dallas/Fort Worth area, but the tarp is not currently on the field and no significant delays are anticipated.
