Worth noting

Michael Gonzalez, who signed a Minor League deal with an invitation to Spring Training on Tuesday, is expected to report on Wednesday.

• Right-hander Ross Ohlendorf is expected to pitch on Thursday night against the Braves. He hasn't appeared in a game thus far because of a sore finger. Earlier in the spring, he had a problem with his side.

• After the team's 11-5 victory over the Mets, Williams and his coaching staff discussed the first round of cuts. Before making the announcement, however, the team has to get through a split-squad game on Saturday and observe the health of the players. Several of them have flu-like symptoms.
