Worth noting

• Adam Rosales (intercostal strain) will begin a rehab assignment with Class A Stockton in San Jose on Wednesday.

• The A's will use Thursday's off-day to give each of their starters an extra day of rest. That means Brett Anderson will be on the mound for Friday's opener in St. Petersburg against the Rays, with Jarrod Parker and Tommy Milone to follow in the three-game series.
