Maxwell has made nine straight starts in right field thanks to a hot start with the bat, but he's hitless in 11 at-bats in his last three games and just 2 for 21 in his last five games. Gregor Blanco will draw the start in right field and bat eighth.

The Giants (-105) are a coin flip with the Angels (-105) Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.

Cardinals send Jordan Walden to DL, recall Sam Tuivailala
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Walden was reported to be batting shoulder stiffness, and it appears further testing has unearthed the biceps injury. He has given up just one earned run in 10 1/3 innings while striking out 12 batters i n12 appearances.

Tuivailala made his major-league debut last season, allowing four earned runs while recording three outs in two appearances. He's allowed just one unearned run in nine innings with Triple-A Memphis while racking up 12 strikeouts and six walks.

Lyons has made 12 starts for the Cardinals over the previous two seasons, going 2-7 with a 5.89 ERA and 53:21 K:BB ratio in 65 2/3 innings. He's been far more effective as a reliever, as he has posted a 1.13 ERA and 26:6 K:BB ratio in 24 innings out of the bullpen.

Lyons has made four starts with Triple-A Memphis this season, going 2-1 with a 2.91 ERA and 26:6 K:BB ratio in 21 2/3 innings.
