Billingsley bruised the index finger on his right hand during a bunting drill on March 15. He was scratched from a start earlier in the week.
Manager Don Mattingly says Billingsley might start the second game on April 2 against San Francisco.
Billingsley says he wants to work on his curveball, which means putting more pressure on the tip of his injured finger. He plans to throw curves in a bullpen session Monday.
Billingsley struck out seven against Cleveland minor leaguers. He didn't throw any curves, but expects to be OK to start the season.
``As long as there are no setbacks, I plan to be there,'' he said.
