"We'll keep communicating," Weiss said. "It's been one on, one off. We'll pick our spot where he wants to go back-to-back. We'll figure out when that is."
• Weiss indicated Todd Helton would likely make his first appearance in the Cactus League in the "vicinity" of next weekend.
• Starting pitcher Christian Friedrich made his big league debut in 2012 and went 5-8 with a 6.70 ERA before landing on the disabled list with a stress fracture in his lower back. He threw a bullpen on Monday and it went well enough that he is scheduled to throw another one on Wednesday.
"I heard it went very well," Weiss said of his 25-pitch session. "I imagine he'll throw [live batting practice and] some simulated games before we throw him out there [in a game]."
