Betancourt, Flores set to throw Tuesday

Right-hander Rafael Betancourt, hampered by right shoulder tightness much of this spring, is set to make his Cactus League debut on Tuesday against the Padres at Hi Corbett Field. Also, left-hander Randy Flores is scheduled to make his return from a bruised left forearm he suffered last Wednesday when hit by a line drive.

Two catchers also are on the mend. Paul Lo Duca has begun playing catch. He has been bothered by a strain beneath his right arm. Catcher Paul Phillips began doing baseball activities over the weekend after being slowed by a calf strain. Third baseman Darin Holcomb, a prospect who has been sent to Minor League camp, has consulted with doctors about a lower back issue, manager Jim Tracy said.
