Worth noting

• Catcher Josmil Pinto and outfielder Chris Parmelee saw action in Minor League games on Thursday, playing for Triple-A Rochester to get more at-bats this spring. Pinto went 2-for-4, while Parmelee added two doubles.

"They were fine," Antony said. "We wanted to get them at-bats to get their swings going."

• Right-hander Mike Pelfrey pitched for Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, and he is scheduled to pitch again Monday. Pelfrey threw 67 pitches over five innings.

"The first inning they knocked him around a little bit, but he came back with a 1-2-3 second inning," Antony said. "He was fine. It was just him getting his work. We did it to let [Kyle] Gibson pitch in the 'A' game because he's battling for a spot."

• Top prospect Byron Buxton was held out of Minor League action for a fourth straight day with a sore left wrist. Buxton, who is rated the top prospect in baseball by MLB.com, originally injured his wrist diving for a ball in the outfield on Sunday.
