• Ryan Madson, still recovering from the inflammation he felt after a rehab outing for Class A Inland Empire on May 13, is expected to start throwing again within the next couple of days.

• Peter Bourjos (strained left hamstring) felt good one day after running the bases for the first time on Wednesday. He'll do it again Friday and Saturday and could begin a rehab assignment Monday.

Twelve of them will include four tickets to an upcoming game and a chance to meet the player or coach who signed the ball.
