• Wedge said he wished the best for outfielder Casper Wells, who was claimed off waivers by the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday. Wells was the final cut of Spring Training, losing out to veteran outfielder Jason Bay.
"He's a good guy," Wedge said. "Any time a guy gets an opportunity to go somewhere else, I wish him the very best. But we really like who we have here, and what our future holds, and we feel good about our ballclub. It's just going to take a little time to settle in. It's all part of things you have to go through early in the year."
• Michael Morse got his first day off of the season on Wednesday, but Wedge said he'd be back in the lineup Thursday.
"He needs a day off," Wedge said. "You're not going to open up and have him play 14 days in a row. It's not right, it's not fair. Ultimately, you're going to put him in harm's way."
• Willis said he would talk to reliever Kameron Loe about honing his sinker, which has been up in the zone. Loe has given up six home runs in 6 2/3 innings this season.
"We can have a conversation about it, which I think we will," Willis said.
