• Infielder Mike Olt was back in camp one day after having a wisdom tooth extracted, but he did not travel with the team to Glendale. The Rangers gave him Thursday off but expect him to be ready to play Friday against the Brewers.

• Craig Gentry was hit twice with pitches during Thursday's game against the Dodgers but came away without any problems. One pitch got him in the arm and another in the back, but both hit muscle rather than bone.
