Worth noting

• Outfielder Engel Beltre had to wear No. 85 during Tuesday's game against the White Sox because he forgot to bring his No. 43 jersey to Glendale.

• Infielder Brent Lillibridge, who got off to a strong start in the Cactus League before suffering a jammed thumb on his right hand, took over for Elvis Andrus at shortstop during Tuesday's game against the White Sox. He was 2-for-2 and is now 7-for-12 in Cactus League games.

• Country-Western singing legend Charley Pride will perform his annual concert in the Rangers' clubhouse Wednesday morning.

Alexi Ogando, Jose Contreras, Jason Frasor, Neal Cotts and Ryan Feierabend pitch against the Angels on Wednesday in Surprise. Martin Perez pitches Thursday against the Giants in the first night game of the spring. That game will be on MLB.TV.
