• Rafael Perez and Luke Jackson also threw scoreless innings in the "B" game against the Royals. Perez, who has pitched in 338 Major League games from 2006-12 for the Indians, has been delayed by a strained right hamstring but could be ready to compete for a spot in the bullpen. The Rangers won the "B" game, 1-0, although it lasted just 4 1/2 innings.
• Infielder Brent Lillibridge, who is 5-for-10 in Cactus League games, is day to day with a jammed right thumb. He injured it sliding into second base on Thursday.
• Outfielder Alex Rios is not expected to play before Sunday as he is dealing with a strained muscle in his right rib cage.
• Right-handed relievers Shawn Tolleson (sore shoulder) and Miles Mikolas (sore elbow) are hoping to be ready to pitch in a "B" game on Tuesday.
