Worth noting

• Chris Stewart (March 19 right knee surgery) is catching Jeff Locke's Wednesday start for Triple-A Indianapolis, and Hurdle said a "plan is in place" to get him to rejoin the club.

"There's a couple of steps we still need to accomplish to get him ready to return," Hurdle said.

• Notice who is tied for second in the Majors with five home runs? None other than Walker, who entered Wednesday's game with 11 homers and 19 RBIs in his last 23 games, since last Sept. 19.
