• Doubront, on the DL with a left shoulder strain, threw from 120 feet and on flat ground before Thursday's game against the Braves.
• Napoli participated in baseball activities Thursday. Farrell said the swelling in the slugger's left ring finger is diminishing.
• Outfielder Shane Victorino is still responding to treatment after being placed on the DL with a right hamstring strain for the second time this season.
"We don't have a date earmarked for his return," Farrell said. "This is the second time he has been dealing with this injury, so we are going to be a little bit more cautious with that."
