Worth noting

• Asked what McDonald making the team as a utility infielder means for Green's chances, Scioscia said it "doesn't preclude anything. We're looking at a lot of options this week. Right now, this doesn't push him in one direction or another."

• Second baseman Howie Kendrick, who's batting .396 in 48 at-bats this spring, was out of the starting lineup on Tuesday because of a stomach virus.

• Lefty reliever Sean Burnett threw a bullpen session on Tuesday morning, his first since experiencing stiffness in his left arm on Friday, but Scioscia said he's "still not able to get over that hump."

"I think it's obviously a step forward any time you can get off the mound," Scioscia added, "but it wasn't the breakthrough 'pen we were looking for."
