Worth noting

• Dodgers reliever Kenley Jansen had an ingrown toenail cut out of his big right toe after Monday's practice.

Jansen's toe was wrapped tightly to stem the bleeding, but he said he was confident he would be back on the field for practice on Tuesday. He is expected to pitch live batting practice on Wednesday.

• Reliever Chris Withrow went to a back specialist, expecting to receive an epidural injection for the bulging disk in his lower back. But doctors told him he was making rapid progress and they would hold off on the injection.

Withrow, who has had two previous lower back episodes in his career, is increasingly confident he will return to the field soon.
