Worth noting

• Sam Fuld (right hamstring) has had 12 plate appearances the past two days, so it appears he will be ready for Opening Day. "Feels good," Fuld said. "No complaints. I've tested [the leg] a lot the last few days."

• Kyle Farnsworth (right middle finger) did not miss any time after trying to grab a ball hit back through the middle on Saturday. He threw a bullpen session on Sunday, and said he's all systems go for Opening Day. "All's good," he said.

• Maddon spoke glowingly about Florida Gulf Coast University's team effort to reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA men's college basketball tournament. The Rays manager agreed that the team based in Fort Myers would make good guests if invited to a game during the coming baseball season.
