Worth noting

• Outfielder Dexter Fowler is better and was possibly available to pinch-hit or enter as a late-inning defensive replacement, but there is still concern about how his rolled ankle will respond to sudden cutting movement.

• Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and first baseman Jason Giambi were scheduled to move their rehab from Double-A Tulsa to Triple-A Colorado Springs, beginning Wednesday night.

• Left-hander Jorge De La Rosa, coming back from Tommy John surgery, threw a bullpen session Wednesday and could face hitters in pregame batting practice this weekend.

• Right-hander Juan Nicasio, recovering from left knee surgery, has been cleared to do light catch on flat ground.

• Utility man Eric Young Jr. is feeling much better with his left intercostal muscle strain but has not started baseball activities yet.

"It's feeling better, so I know we're heading in the right direction," Young said. "For what I'm doing, I feel great, but I haven't swung the bat or done any baseball activity, so that's going to be the test."
