Worth noting

Catcher Geovany Soto (left knee surgery) crouched and caught pitches -- 40, this time -- from coach Bengie Molina for a second consecutive day on Saturday. It's the first time he's gone back-to-back days in that step in his recovery.

Asked if he felt as comfortable as he looked, Soto said: "Very comfortable."
