Worth noting

• Right-hander Bud Norris, who will start for the Astros on Opening Day, and left-hander Erik Bedard each threw in a Minor League game in Kissimmee, Fla., against the Tigers. Norris threw 38 pitches in two innings in his final tuneup prior to Sunday, and Bedard threw 45 pitches in three innings.

• Outfielder Chris Carter was forced to give up a jersey number for the second time in three days. He reported to camp wearing 13, but Ronny Cedeno wanted it when he signed on Sunday. He switched to 28, but Rick Ankiel told Carter he wants that number. Carter wanted 33, which is retired (Mike Scott), but he's planning on wearing 23 on Opening Day.
