Worth noting

Tommy Hunter, who took fielding practice Wednesday, will throw a sim game on Thursday and the team will decide after that whether to activate him (to pitch as early as Saturday) or if Hunter needs another sim game/rehab start.

• Henry Urrutia, who is recovering from a sports hernia, started running on Friday.

Johan Santana will pitch five innings in extended spring training on Friday, 75 pitches, and his next outing is TBD after that.
