Short hops

Andrew Cashner isn't just a very good pitcher, but he's apparently a very proficient bunter, too. Cashner came up big in Wednesday's bunting content between two teams of pitchers. Cashner's team of Keyvius Sampson, Tyson Ross, Joe Ross, Joe Wieland and Donn Roach topped the team consisting of Ian Kennedy, Eric Stults, Josh Johnson, Matt Wisler, Robbie Erlin and Burch Smith.

• Minor League infielder Jonathan Galvez, sidelined for a week because of a groin injury, was on the field for Wednesday's morning drills. Galvez ran the bases and could actually appear in Thursday's game against the Mariners, said manager Bud Black. "We'll see how he does today," Black said. Galvez will likely begin the regular season with Triple-A El Paso.
