Worth noting

• Pitcher Wilmer Font, who has a chance to win a job in the bullpen, is dealing with mild inflammation in his right shoulder and is being limited to flat-ground work.

• Washington said pitcher Alexi Ogando did a nice job in the intrasquad game of using his changeup and throwing inside on right-handed hitters.

• Nelson Cruz hit a home run in his first at-bat of the spring, belting a 3-1 fastball from Jacob Brigham over the center-field wall. Said Cruz: "You want to make sure your swing is ready, and I guess it was today."
