• Ed Lucas (left hamstring) traveled to Port St. Lucie, Fla., on Thursday to get some at-bats as the designated hitter in a Minor League game. If that goes well, Lucas could be ready to play the field in Grapefruit League games this weekend. Lucas is competing for a utility infield spot.
• Greg Dobbs (left quadriceps) is doing limited baseball activities. There is no clear timetable for when he will be ready for games.
