Worth noting

• First baseman Todd Helton, who is coming off hip and knee surgeries and gradually working into playing shape, went 2-for-3 in seven innings Thursday night. He will not play in either split-squad game on Friday, manager Walt Weiss said.

• Right-hander Edgmer Escalona, out of Minor League options but making a strong bid to make the Rockies bullpen, threw a scoreless inning with one hit and two strikeouts, and has a 1.29 Cactus League ERA.

• Right-hander Chris Volstad, whom the Rockies are converting to relief, gave up two hits and a run in two innings.

• Lefty reliever Rex Brothers added a shutout inning Thursday and now has thrown six scoreless innings this spring.

• Infielder Jonathan Herrera, making a late push to hold off challengers for his roster spot, went 2-for-2 with a triple off the bench Thursday and is hitting .333.
