Worth noting

• Robbed of an opportunity to pitch Friday night because of the rain, the Rockies had some of the pitchers scheduled to work in that game throw simulated innings at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick on Saturday morning. Right-handers Dan Houston, Miguel Batista and Chad Bettis, and lefty Tyler Anderson threw two innings apiece. Righties Josh Sullivan, Manny Corpas, Will Harris and Bobby Cassevah, and lefty Rex Brothers each threw one inning.
