Smoke signals

• Indians designated hitter Mark Reynolds, who also plays first base, took grounders at third base during Friday's workout. Reynolds played third regularly earlier in his career, but Francona said he was only at the position to even out the number of players working out at each position on the first day.

"He will play the majority early in camp at first," Francona said. "And then later on in camp we'll get him some reps at third. But the only reason we did that today was we didn't want Lonnie [Chisenhall] taking 1,000 [grounders at third] and our first basemen taking three."

• The Indians had a little fun at the start of their first full-squad workout on Friday. Assistant athletic trainer Mike Salazar lost a bet with strength and conditioning coach Joe Kessler over January's BCS title game between Notre Dame and Alabama. Salazar bet on the Irish and lost, and was on the agility field Friday morning wearing an Alabama hat, a red speedo and a belt pack for his training gear.

"I had fun for the first day of Spring Training," Bourn said. "I found out somebody [lost] a bet on Notre Dame. That was fun. That was the first part that sparked me. I was laughing the whole time. We had a good day."

• Indians reliever Joe Smith (left oblique) resumed his throwing program on Friday and remains on target to possibly return to mound work by the end of next week. Francona said Smith felt fine after Friday's practice.

• Former Indians Kenny Lofton and Carlos Baerga were in camp on Friday serving as guest instructors. Baerga works with the infielders and Lofton helps out with the outfielders and with baserunning and bunting.
