On the shelf
Outfielders Steven Duggar (flexor strain) and Heath Quinn (hamate) have not yet been assigned to a full-season affiliate and will begin the season rehabbing in extended spring training. The same goes for shortstop C.J. Hinojosa (quad) and outfielder Dylan Davis (shoulder), the latter of whom spent much of the camp working at third base.
