Worth noting

• A's infielder Nick Punto played just two innings in the field Monday before departing the game with left hamstring tightness. The team said it was a precautionary move.

• Outfielder Craig Gentry, who will begin the season on the disabled list after being delayed in spring by a lower back strain, went 3-for-5 with a triple in a Minor League game Monday.
