Worth noting

• Josh Lindblom pitched a scoreless inning, striking out two in a Minor League game against the Royals on Thursday night. Right-handers Coty Woods and Johan Yan also pitched one scoreless inning each.

• First baseman Chris McGuinness, who was taken in the Rule 5 Draft last December, is not expected to make the Indians' Opening Day roster. He would have to be offered back to the Rangers, who want him back. But the Indians may try to keep him through a trade.

• Lance Berkman, who was off on Saturday, has drawn 11 walks, tied with the Angels' Mike Trout for the most in the Cactus League.

• Jeff Baker left Saturday's game in the third inning due to sinus issues.

• Jason Frasor allowed two runs in one inning of work in a Double-A Minor League game against the White Sox on Saturday. Frasor has not allowed a run in five Class A games.
