• Manager Ron Washington spent much time at the minicamp working with infielders Luis Sardinas, Rougned Odor and Jurickson Profar on their defense around second base. All three are working out with the pitchers.
• The four catchers at the camp are J.P. Arencibia, Jorge Alfaro, Brett Nicholas and Patrick Cantwell. Nicholas has played mostly first base the past two years, hitting .289 with 21 home runs and 91 RBIs at Double-A Frisco last season. But he was drafted as a catcher out of the University of Missouri in 2010.
• There are 13 pitchers at the minicamp: right-handers Alec Asher, Lisalverto Bonilla, Jerad Eckhoff, Alex Gonzalez, Luke Jackson, Nick Martinez, Miles Mikolas, Chaz Roe, Ben Rowen, Nick Tepesch and Shawn Tolleson, and left-handers Michael Kirkman and Jimmy Reyes.
• Matt Harrison is throwing at the Ballpark during the camp, but is not officially a part of it. Martin Perez is supposed to be there but was having travel problems.
