Andrews performed Burnett's Tommy John surgery in 2004 and removed two bone spurs from his elbow this offseason. "I think it's just another set of eyes and hands on him," Scioscia said.

• Scott Downs, who felt some soreness in his right rib cage area during Wednesday's outing, is available out of the bullpen.

• Mark Lowe, who was placed on the disabled list on April 20 with a neck strain, is expected to be activated for Tuesday's opener against the Astros. The right-handed reliever will pitch two innings for Class A Inland Empire on Sunday.

• Luis Jimenez once again got some work in left field prior to Saturday's game. Scioscia said he's "showing some good instincts," and added that he "could consider" starting Jimenez there against a lefty.
