Worth noting

• Hurdle and his coaches, with some front office input, will brainstorm following Monday's game against the Orioles in McKechnie Field about the initial camp cuts. The reassignments will not be announced, however, earlier than Wednesday -- the day Minor League exhibition games begin.

• Brandon Inge had a frustrating debut on the field against the Twins. He played third base, without handling a single chance in his five innings, and went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts.

"The question is Inge's bat. Can he do enough to help out offensively?" said Huntington, who is satisfied with the veteran's ability to handle the glove at numerous positions.

• Jose Tabata took the team lead by driving in his sixth run in the win over the Orioles. Spring Training or not, a significant step given that his lack of run production (a total of 72 RBIs in 1,072 Major League at-bats) has been a big concern.
