Worth noting

• Righty reliever Fernando Rodriguez will throw in a Minor League game on Friday, which will mark his first time pitching in a non-simulated game since undergoing Tommy John surgery.

• Melvin said he will wait to announce an Opening Day starter for at least a few more days.

"I think after these next starts, we'll have a better idea of how we line things up," he said.
