Worth noting

Greg Dobbs, designated for assignment on April 29, was officially released on Tuesday. The veteran is now a free agent.

Dobbs made the Opening Day roster as a left-handed-hitting pinch-hit specialist. He went 1-for-13 in that role. But the team designated him to make room for utility infielder Ed Lucas.

Rafael Furcal, who returned from his rehab assignment after aggravating his right groin, is receiving his treatment at the Roger Dean Stadium complex in Jupiter, Fla.

There is no timetable on when the 36-year-old second baseman could be activated.

"We'll see how that progresses and get him back on the field at some point," Redmond said. "I don't know when that will be. I know he's disappointed. It looked like he was really close."
