Worth noting

• The Padres have signed 30-year-old right-handed pitcher Billy Buckner and sent him to extended spring camp in Arizona. Buckner wasn't with a big league team in Spring Training, but he kept his arm in shape working out with a junior college team in Georgia. Buckner has a 6.07 ERA in parts of five seasons in the big leagues with three teams: the Royals (2007), D-backs (2008-10) and Angels ('13).
