Worth noting

• Jim Johnson and Darren O'Day threw at the Minor League complex on Tuesday to give the pair of relievers back-to-back outings. Arrieta started and went six innings. He is slated to throw again on Sunday, the team's off-day.

• Mark Hendrickson will not stay in extended spring and the lefty, who is working on a new sidearm delivery, is still in camp and an outside option to make the club, according to Showalter. If he doesn't, Hendrickson could be assigned to Triple-A Norfolk or Double-A Bowie, which is a lot closer to his York, Pa., home.

• Gonzalez will start Saturday's game against the Mets.

• Showalter said outfielder/infielder Russ Canzler is not an option to return to camp, but raved about Canzler as a person and player. He is expected to start for Triple-A Norfolk.
