Worth noting

• The Dodgers began a team Ping-Pong tournament Wednesday, featuring eight doubles teams in a double-elimination bracket.

The first victory of the competition went to Peter Moylan and Mark Lowe, who defeated the duo of Carl Crawford and Tony Gwynn Jr.

Each team made up an off-the-cuff nickname to call itself, with the pair of Mark and A.J. Ellis going by "The Law Firm."

• Still rehabbing from Tommy John elbow reconstruction surgery performed last August, Crawford is steadily progressing at Dodgers camp with no setbacks.

"We haven't had anything go on that raised a red flag," Mattingly said. "Carl is coming off major surgery, so anything that is happening with him is designed. When he has a heavy day, the next day will be light."
