SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Marco Scutaro increased his baseball-related activity Sunday, leaving manager Bruce Bochy feeling optimistic that the second baseman could begin participating in exhibition games by the end of the week.

Left-hander Jeremy Affeldt, who has been careful not to aggravate his groin injury, gingerly took part in a fielding drill and was included on the list of pitchers for Monday's "B" game against the Cubs at Mesa.
