NOTES: Catcher Taylor Teagarden said he jarred his lower back weightlifting and could be sidelined for several days. He underwent x-rays on Friday, but they showed no structural damage. ... Joe Mahoney is in left field today. He's getting some time out there in case there's a logjam at first base in Triple-A Norfolk. ... Jim Johnson says he's right on schedule. He'll pitch one inning in tomorrow's "B" game and then make his next appearance in Grapefruit League action. ... Tommy Hunter, who will start the "B" game, said during a break in his pingpong game that his back feels great.
