Worth noting

• Left-hander Cole Hamels starts Wednesday against the Tigers in Lakeland. He will probably pitch only three innings as he rests up for Opening Day on Monday in Atlanta.

• Right-hander Roy Halladay is expected to throw 85-90 pitches in Thursday's start against the Blue Jays at Bright House Field. He has struggled for much of the month, so the Phillies would like to see some positive results before he pitches April 3 in Atlanta.

• Betancourt, whom the Phillies released Sunday, has signed a Major League contract with the Brewers.

• Left-hander Antonio Bastardo pitched two-thirds of an inning Tuesday because he is pitching again Wednesday. It is the first time he will pitch back-to-back days this spring.
