• Weiss said the sky is the limit for third baseman Nolan Arenado, who became the first National League rookie to win a Rawlings Gold Glove Award last year.

"Nolan looks great. I think he's one of the guys that has stood out for me early in camp," Weiss said. "His approach at the plate, more than anything else, he just looks like he's got his legs underneath him, and he understands what he's trying to do. I really expect this guy to play in multiple All-Star Games. I think he's that type of player."

• Left-handed-hitting center-field candidates Charlie Blackmon and Corey Dickerson each singled and scored in their first at-bats of Thursday's intrasquad game. Each of them batted leadoff.

Non-roster outfielder Jason Pridie and non-roster catcher Jackson Williams hit consecutive home runs, both off Raul Fernandez, in the sixth inning.

• Right-hander Christian Bergman, 25, who earned Texas League All-Star honors by striking out 111 and going 8-7 with a 3.37 ERA last season in 27 starts at Double-A Tulsa, threw two scoreless innings. He gave up one walk and one hit.
