Worth noting

• Catcher Eli Whiteside was out Friday with a calf strain, and center fielder Craig Gentry missed his third straight day because of a strained left hamstring. He should be set to play Saturday at 2:10 p.m. CT against the D-backs.

• Tanner Scheppers (left hamstring), Roman Mendez (elbow) and Yoshinori Tateyama (lower back) all threw bullpen sessions. Kyle McClellan (shoulder), a candidate for the No. 5 spot in the rotation, threw a session from the front of the mound.

• Former Rangers Mark McLemore, Rusty Greer and Kenny Rogers were all in camp Friday working with the club. Washington said Rogers was specifically working in pitchers' fielding practice and with the club's left-handers on their pickoff moves -- a specialty of his during a 20-year big league career.
