• Gonzalez said Jonny Venters is healthy despite the fact the left-handed reliever has not made an appearance since March 13. Venters has made six spring appearances and he issued four walks in 1 1/3 innings during his most recent outing.

• Dan Uggla raised his average from .182 to .207 with a pair of singles on Wednesday. After striking out in 12 of his first 25 spring at-bats, Uggla said he has started to get more comfortable at the plate. But Wednesday marked just his second multi-hit game.
