Worth noting

• The Padres brought eight Minor League players with them for the two-game series against Texas -- and seven of the eight will remain behind when the team leaves after Saturday's game. The players on the roster include pitchers Wilfredo Boscan, Jeffrey Ibarra, Ryan Kelly, Kevin Quackenbush and Donn Roach, infielder Jonathan Galvez, outfielder Rico Noel and catcher Eddy Rodriguez. Galvez will begin the season with Triple-A Tucson.
