Worth noting

• Felix Hernandez threw his third 10-minute bullpen session of the spring Monday and now will progress to live batting practice sessions later this week. Hernandez isn't expected to throw in a Cactus League game until the following week.

• Young catching prospect John Hicks singled in the eighth inning Monday and to improve to 3-for-3 this spring and 5-for-5 in two years of Cactus League action. Hicks went 2-for-2 with a home run last year, when he played one game as a Minor League callup.

• Third baseman Alex Liddi launched a two-run home run over the left-field wall in the seventh inning of Monday's 9-8 Cactus League win against the Angels for his first hit in nine spring at-bats.

"That's one of the furthest balls I've seen hit in my short period of time here," manager Eric Wedge said. "He has that type of power. He's in the best shape that we've seen him and he's moving around great. He has that bat speed, it's just been more about this approach and swing plane and plate coverage and staying on top of the ball. I thought he worked his way through BP and got better as he went today, and obviously he was able to work that into the game."
