Worth noting

• Right-hander Hector Ambriz, who sprained his left ankle a week ago, threw on the mound Friday for the first time since the injury without any incident. The next step for Ambriz will be able to face live hitters for the first time.

• Catcher Max Stassi, who's been dealing with a strained oblique the entire camp, continues to improve. He did some blocking drills Friday and swung a fungo bat. "We're anxious to get him back healthy and get him back on the field," manager Bo Porter said.
