Hawpe has what the club is describing as mild right hamstring soreness. De La Cruz has left forearm tightness and will not pitch. Both players are listed as day-to-day.
Hawpe, 32, is a candidate for a bench spot. The Fort Worth native is here as a non-roster invitee. The left-handed batter hopes to show he can play first and corner outfield and swing the bat. He hit .231 with four homers and 19 RBIs in 62 games (195 at-bats) with San Diego in 2011.
De La Cruz is one of the left-handed bullpen candidates. He was added to the 40-man roster when he was acquired from the Cleveland Indians for cash in the offseason. The 23-year-old did a nice job against lefties in Double-A in 2011, holding them to a .141 average.
