  • Nick Martinez hit hard by D'Backs on Tuesday
    Nick Martinez turned in his roughest outing of the spring on Tuesday, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Martinez also issued three free passes while striking out two. Even with the abomination, he still owns a 4.20 ERA and 11/4 K/BB ratio over 15 innings in Cactus League play. He'll open the season as the fifth starter in the Rangers rotation but is unlikely to carry any mixed league fantasy value, especially pitching half of his games in Arlington. Rotoworld.com

  • Huston Street knocked around again Tuesday
    Huston Street had another rough Cactus League outing on Tuesday, allowing four runs on three hits in his inning of work against the Athletics.

    Advice: All of the damage against the veteran right-hander came on home runs, with Luke Carlin swatting a solo home run and Mark Canha adding a three-run shot. The 31-year-old right-hander now owns a dreadful 8.10 ERA on the spring with a 1/3 K/BB ratio in his 6 2/3 innings. While spring results aren't anything to get overly concerned about, Street owners may want to lock up Joe Smith as a handcuff for security purposes. Rotoworld.com

  • Bruce Chen beats Mariners despite poor outing
    Bruce Chen picked up a victory in Tuesday's Cactus League outing against the Mariners despite allowing four runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings.

    Advice: The veteran southpaw did manage to record five strikeouts on the day without issuing a walk, though he did serve up a pair of home runs. He'll take his 6.08 ERA down to Triple-A Columbus where he'll function as rotational depth in the event that the Indians suffer a multitude of injuries in their rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Tim Lincecum struggles again vs. Rockies
    Tim Lincecum struggled again in Tuesday's Cactus League start against the Rockies, surrendering three runs on eight hits over his 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Lincecum also issued three free passes while punching out three on the afternoon. All of the damage against him came on one swing of the bat by Nolan Arenado in the fifth inning. Despite a 6.27 spring ERA, he'll open the season as the fifth starter in the Giants' Opening Day rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Axford (personal) could be ready for opener
    Rockies manager Walt Weiss said that he's mapped out a throwing schedule that could have John Axford (personal) ready for Opening Day.

    Advice: However, Weiss added that he wants to make sure the pitcher is "in the right frame of mind." Axford is currently away from the club after his son, Jameson, was bitten twice by a rattlesnake. Rotoworld.com

  • Crain (shoulder) still not throwing off mound
    Jesse Crain (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing off a mound.

    Advice: Crain felt soreness in his shoulder following a minor league appearance on March 18 and has been limited to playing catch since then. He'll stay back in extended spring training and it's unclear how long he'll be out. "But I'm moving forward again," said Crain. "Obviously, when you first come in, you feel like there's a chance, as I was doing so well. ... I don't want to rush it, and [I want to] make sure I'm there and there for good when it happens."

  • Matt Albers, Geovany Soto make team
    Matt Albers and Geovany Soto have been informed that they've made the White Sox' Opening Day roster.

    Advice: Neither move comes as a surprise, as they both basically just had to stay healthy this spring and they were going to make the team. Albers held a 5.14 ERA this spring but struck out nine over seven innings, while Soto hit .286/.444/.500 with one homer. Albers will work in middle relief, while Soto will back up Tyler Flowers.

  • Lincecum confirmed as Giants' fifth starter
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy confirmed Tuesday that Tim Lincecum will begin the season as the team's No. 5 starter.

    Advice: Lincecum entered camp as the clear favorite for the role but then stumbled with a 6.27 ERA. Luckily for him, Yusmeiro Petit and Ryan Vogelsong have been arguably just as bad or worse. Lincecum will still get strikeouts for fantasy owners, but that's all they can count on from him at this point. Rotoworld.com

  • Chapman (hamstring) makes precautionary exit
    Aroldis Chapman was removed from Tuesday's appearance for precautionary reasons due to a right hamstring injury.

    Advice: Chapman was pulled from the game after a long discussion with Reds coaches and trainers. The closer wanted to continue and insists that his hamstring is fine, so it sounds like this isn't anything to worry about. Expect Chapman to be available to pitch in a day or two. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:19 pm
  • Chapman pulled from game with apparent injury
    Aroldis Chapman was pulled from Tuesday's Cactus League game with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Chapman appeared to be arguing that he was fine to stay in, but the flame-throwing closer ultimately exited the field with a large contingent of Reds coaches and trainers. Chapman had faced just one batter. There should be an update on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com

  • Mijares gets 50-game drug suspension
    Major League Baseball has suspended Jose Mijares for 50 games for a drug of abuse.

    Advice: Mijares was released by the Reds on March 23 and now may struggle to find another opportunity with an MLB-affiliated club. The 30-year-old left-hander had a 5.06 ERA in 5 1/3 innings this spring in the Cactus League. Rotoworld.com

  • Aaron Sanchez walks six, gives up five runs
    Aaron Sanchez gave up five runs and walked six in 4 1/3 innings Tuesday in a non-decision versus the Phillies.

    Advice: It's the first time Sanchez's old control woes have surfaced this spring. He walked 57 batters in 101 1/3 innings in the minors last year, but after joining the Blue Jays pen, he walked just nine in 33 innings, partly because he was able to simplify his arsenal. This spring, he had walked four in 18 1/3 innings, which boded well for his chances of being a decent starting pitcher. We're still a bit skeptical that'll happen, but he's talented enough to prove us wrong. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:06 pm
  • Tolleson (forearm) throws perfect inning
    Shawn Tolleson (forearm) threw a perfect inning in a Triple-A game on Tuesday afternoon.

    Advice: Tolleson needed only seven pitches to get through the frame. He's been slowed in Rangers camp by some forearm tightness, but an MRI taken last week showed no structural damage. The 27-year-old is expected to begin the season the disabled list, but he should be activated by the middle of April. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:04 pm
  • Ken Giles pulled from game with pain in back
    Ken Giles was lifted from Tuesday's Grapefruit League game after experiencing pain in his back.

    Advice: The discomfort was in the mid-to-lower part of the 24-year-old right-hander's back. Giles had a terrific rookie season in 2014 and had been pitching well this spring. He expects to be fine for Opening Day. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:24 pm
  • Axford's son bitten by rattlesnake in Arizona
    John Axford left Rockies camp Tuesday after his two-year-old son was bit by a rattlesnake.

    Advice: Jameson Axford got bit twice on the right foot and was taken to a Phoenix hospital, where he was given anti-venom. He is now in stable condition, but his toes may have to be amputated. Awful stuff. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:20 pm
  • Luke Gregerson officially named Astros closer
    Luke Gregerson has been named the Astros' closer.

    Advice: It was a predictable decision. Gregerson posted a 2.12 ERA and 59/15 K/BB ratio in 72 1/3 innings last season for the A's and should carry considerable fantasy value this year on a quickly-improving Astros team. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:12 pm
  • Bruce Rondon returns to mound
    Bruce Rondon returned to the mound on Tuesday and struck out all three batters he faced against the Pirates.

    Advice: Barring further problems with his neck, Rondon is back on track to make the Opening Day roster. He hadn't pitched since Friday because of soreness in the area. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:01 pm
  • Brewers option Wooten, Clark and Rogers
    Brewers optioned RHP Rob Wooten, 1B Matt Clark and INF/OF Jason Rogers to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Wooten was a potential swing reliever coming into the spring. He actually pitched quite well, posting an ERA of 1.26 and a 1.047 WHIP in 14 and 1/3 spring innings. It's likely that he'll be back with the big club when the Brewers need a stretch man. Rotoworld.com

  • Mets reassign Alvarez to minors camp
    Mets reassigned LHP Dario Alvarez to minor league camp.

    Advice: This probably won't be the last we've heard from Alvarez, who skyrocketed through the Mets' minor league system in 2014, rolling from Double-A to the majors. He struggled a bit with his control this spring, walking five over 7 and 1/3 innings. Should he prove that he doesn't need much more minor league marination (1.10 ERA and 114/17 K/BB over 73 1/3 innings in the minors last season), the 25-year-old could see a mid-season call-up.

  • Gaudin (arm) to start season in extended ST
    Chad Gaudin (arm) will begin the season in extended spring training.

    Advice: Gaudin has been shut down with a nerve injury in his neck that's caused his fingers to tingle. In addition to the neck injury, he also has been battling arm soreness. He'll continue to rest in Arizona until doctors clear him for baseball activities. Rotoworld.com

  • Joe Saunders signs new minor league deal
    Mariners re-signed LHP Joe Saunders to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Saunders was due to make a $100,000 retention bonus on his previous minor league deal, so he was released before agreeing to this new contract. He put up a 6.70 ERA over 43 innings in the majors last season and has struggled this spring. The veteran southpaw won't make the Opening Day roster, but he'll give the Mariners some rotation depth in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Adams to start season in minors
    Mike Adams told reporters that he will begin the season with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: The Dodgers will pay Adams a $100,000 retention bonus. Adams has battled shoulder injuries over the last two seasons. This spring, he's allowed five runs in 4+ innings. "Health-wise I've been good. I haven't had any outings I've felt bad at all. I've just been inconsistent with performance," said Adams. The team is going slow with him because of his injury history, but if he's able to prove his health, he could serve as bullpen depth later in the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Rangers release Jamey Wright
    Rangers released RHP Jamey Wright.

    Advice: Wright posted an ERA of 9.64 in 9+ innings this spring. At the age of 40, his chances of finding work elsewhere are dim. Wright last pitched at the MLB-level for the Dodgers in 2014. Rotoworld.com

  • Phillies release Kevin Slowey
    Phillies released RHP Kevin Slowey.

    Advice: In his last two outings, Slowey had allowed nine runs over three innings. He was also part of a benches-clearing incident on Monday. Slowey should be able to latch on with another club, as he's a veteran arm who began Spring Training with a 2.08 ERA in two starts and three relief appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • Aaron Thompson optioned to Triple-A

  • Blake Wood reassigned to minors
    Pirates reassigned RHP Blake Wood to minor league camp.

    Advice: Wood was knocked around for five runs in 7+ innings during Spring Training. This is par for the course, as he posted a 4.46 ERA in the minors last season. Barring a rash of injuries on the Pirates' big league club, he'll serve as organizational depth. Rotoworld.com

  • Pirates option Scahill to Triple-A
    Pirates optioned RHP Rob Scahill to Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: The team acquired Scahill from the Rockies in November. He has a career 4.42 ERA and a 35/21 K/BB ratio over 57 innings in the majors. The right-hander will serve as organizational depth for the Pirates. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:42 am
  • Pirates option Holdzkom to Triple-A
    Pirates optioned RHP John Holdzkom to Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: The 27-year old posted a 3.38 ERA while pitching eight spring innings. Should the Pirates need additional bullpen depth, Holdzkom could see a call-up later this year. In 2014, he put up a 1.73 ERA over 36+ innings in the minors. Rotoworld.com

  • Hamilton situation affects Street extension
    MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez reports that Huston Street isn't expected to complete a contract extension until after Josh Hamilton's situation is resolved.

    Advice: Hamilton won't be paid while suspended, and the Angels could use those savings on a new deal for Street. It's unclear at this point how long Hamilton -- who is slated to make $23 million in 2015 -- will be suspended, but a resolution is expected prior to Opening Day. Both Street and the Halos appear optimistic that they'll get something done. The closer will make $7 million in 2015 and turns 32 in August. Rotoworld.com

  • Adams allows two more runs vs. D'Backs
    Mike Adams allowed two more runs in an inning of work facing the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: Adams has allowed runs in three of his five appearances so far this spring. The Dodgers could use bullpen help, but the 36-year-old right-hander is coming off of a rotator cuff injury. The Dodgers have to tell him by noon EST on Tuesday if he's made the active roster, if he's been cut, or if he'll begin the season in the minors, per SB Nation's Eric Stephen. Rotoworld.com

  • Bruce Rondon (neck) held out again
    Bruce Rondon (neck) didn't make a scheduled appearance on Monday.

    Advice: Rondon has now been scratched from two straight appearances due to a neck injury. The ailment appears to be minor, but Tigers manager Brad Ausmus wouldn't commit to using Rondon on Tuesday. The big righty is running out of time as he tries to cement a spot in the Opening Day bullpen. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 3:23 pm
  • Kevin Slowey gives up six runs to Pirates
    Kevin Slowey was pounded for six runs -- five earned -- in two innings by the Pirates on Monday.

    Advice: Slowey also played a role in the benches-clearing incident in the game, apparently because he quick-pitched Sean Rodriguez, who took exception. Slowey, who opened the spring with a 2.08 ERA in two starts and three relief appearances, has put his roster spot in jeopardy by allowing nine runs -- seven earned -- in three innings his last two times out.

  • Bruce Rondon (neck) scheduled to pitch Monday
    Bruce Rondon (neck) is scheduled to return to Grapefruit League action on Monday.

    Advice: That all depends on how the big right-hander is feeling on Monday however. Rondon woke up with a crick in his neck on Saturday which caused him to take a couple of days off. He should have no problems getting himself ready in time for the start of the regular season. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 3:52 pm
  • Nick Martinez wins spot in Rangers' rotation
    Nick Martinez has won the fifth spot in the Rangers' rotation.

    Advice: The news was expected and was officially announced by manager Jeff Banister on Sunday. Martinez posted an ordinary 4.55 ERA with just 77 strikeouts over 140 1/3 innings last season but boasts a 0.84 ERA this spring. He's not recommended for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 11:15 am
  • Bruce Rondon (neck) held out of action
    Bruce Rondon (neck) remained out of action on Sunday.

    Advice: Rondon is feeling better after waking up with a crick in his neck on Saturday but isn't ready for game action just yet. He should be fine in a day or two. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:42 am
  • Tolleson (forearm) to appear in minors game
    Shawn Tolleson (forearm) will appear in a minor league game Sunday.

    Advice: An MRI on Tolleson's forearm revealed no structural damage, but he's still expected to begin the season on the disabled list. By pitching him in minor league games, the Rangers can backdate a DL move. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:33 am
  • Chapman starts, fans the side vs. Cubs
    Aroldis Chapman started Saturday's game against the Cubs and struck out the side in his only inning of work.

    Advice: Chapman struck out Dexter Fowler, Arismendy Alcantara, and Jorge Soler in succession. The fireballing lefty is sitting on a 16/3 K/BB ratio in 11 spring innings. Manager Bryan Price said prior to the game that "there might be opportunities" to use Chapman for more than three outs during the regular season, per MLB.com's Mark Sheldon. Rotoworld.com

  • Ken Giles throws perfect inning
    Ken Giles bounced back from Thursday's poor outing with a perfect inning Saturday against the Twins.

    Advice: Giles gave up four runs against the Blue Jays two days ago. He had walked a total of seven batters in 7 1/3 innings this spring, but he managed to find the strike zone today. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 12:48 pm
  • Chad Gaudin (neck) shut down for now
    The Dodgers have shut down Chad Gaudin (arm) for the time being and are awaiting his MRI results.

    Advice: The veteran right-hander has dealt with a variety of ailments in spring camp, including a tweak in his throwing arm and tingling in his fingers due to nerve issues in his neck. He will remain shut down until the team can determine the cause of his ailments. Rotoworld.com

  • Bruce Rondon shaky in relief
    With the rain coming down, Bruce Rondon have up two runs and three hits in one-third of an inning before Friday's game against the Jays was called.

    Advice: The Tigers might throw this one out because of the poor conditions. Still, it was Rondon's first really shaky outing of the spring. He gave up a two-run homer to Justin Smoak and retired just one of the five batters he faced. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:07 pm
  • Shawn Tolleson's MRI comes back clean
    An MRI on Shawn Tolleson's right forearm showed no structural damage.

    Advice: Tolleson will be examined by Rangers team physician Dr. Keith Meister on Friday to determine his next step. The MRI news is obviously good, but Tolleson is still expected to begin the season on the disabled list. "In our minds it was very positive news," assistant general manager Thad Levine said. "We don’t think he’s lost any significant arm strength." Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:13 am
  • Tim Lincecum offers mixed bag Thursday
    Tim Lincecum struck out seven but permitted four runs -- three earned -- over five innings of work Thursday against the Athletics.

    Advice: He allowed four hits and walked a pair in what really was a pretty typical Lincecum performance. The right-hander has recorded 14 strikeouts over 13 Cactus League innings but also holds a 6.92 ERA. Lincecum has pitched better than Yusmeiro Petit and Ryan Vogelsong, which means he'll likely begin the season in the rotation. His leash will be short, though. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 8:51 pm
  • Nick Martinez dominates over six innings
    Nick Martinez recorded four strikeouts while spinning six scoreless frames Thursday against the Rockies.

    Advice: He yielded five hits (four of them were singles) while walking one. It's a performance that just might be enough to wrap up the fifth spot in the rotation for Martinez, who now boasts a microscopic 0.84 ERA this spring. He's competing primarily with Nick Tepesch for the job. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 8:43 pm
  • Chad Gaudin (neck) to be examined
    Chad Gaudin will be examined after feeling tingling in his fingers due to the ongoing nerve issues in his neck.

    Advice: Gaudin had surgery a couple years ago but has never been able to totally shake the nerve problems, as this is the second time in the last week he's had issues. He's been shut down and will be sent for an exam before the next course of action is determined. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Martinez leading for No. 5 spot
    Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News believes that Nick Martinez leads the competition for the Rangers' No. 5 starter job.

    Advice: He cautions that "nothing is decided" but thinks that Martinez is the "front runner." Martinez's main competitors for the gig are Nick Tepesch, Anthony Ranaudo and Lisalverto Bonilla. The 24-year-old made 24 starts for Texas last season, posting a 4.55 ERA with just 77 strikeouts over 140 1/3 innings overall. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 3:15 pm
  • Aaron Sanchez strong in no-decision
    Aaron Sanchez held the Phillies to one run and two hits in 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision Thursday.

    Advice: Sanchez's rotation spot appears secure. He's not a great bet in AL-only leagues, but he'd certainly make sense as a late-round pick if he lasts. He has a 3.93 ERA this spring, with a 9/4 K/BB ratio in 18 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:30 pm
  • Ken Giles gives up four runs to Jays
    Ken Giles was charged with four runs in two-thirds of an inning Thursday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Giles walked two and allowed two hits, one of them a three-run homer off the bat of Steve Tolleson. We still don't imagine Giles' shaky spring will cost him a roster spot, but he's up to seven walks in 7 1/3 innings. He does need to be better over this next week. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:26 pm
  • Tolleson to be examined by Dr. Meister Fri.
    Shawn Tolleson will be examined by Dr. Keith Meister, the Rangers' team physician, on Friday.

    Advice: Tolleson has been bothered by right forearm tightness since late last week. The exam Friday will include an MRI, which should help the Rangers map a path for the 27-year-old setup man. Tolleson had an impressive 2.76 ERA in 71 2/3 innings last season. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:02 pm
  • Tolleson set to have MRI on right forearm
    Shawn Tolleson will have an MRI on his right forearm.

    Advice: Tolleson was scratched from an appearance Sunday with forearm tightness, so the Rangers are obviously concerned about the reliever's health. Tolleson played catch Tuesday without issue. The results of the MRI will be known Thursday, at which point the club will know more about his outlook. His chances of being ready for Opening Day grow less likely by the day. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:14 pm
  • Bruce Rondon throws perfect inning
    Bruce Rondon pitched a perfect frame versus the Marlins on Wednesday.

    Advice: Rondon's velocity has fluctuated in his six appearances back from Tommy John surgery, but his control has been surprisingly good, with just one walk through six innings. He's going to have a spot in the Tigers bullpen, and he could quickly find himself in a late-game role, depending on how well the veterans perform. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:46 pm
  • Kevin Slowey gives up three runs in relief
    Kevin Slowey gave up three runs -- two earned -- in one inning of relief Wednesday against the Astros.

    Advice: We're not sure why Slowey got booted from the rotation mix; he allowed one hit over five scoreless innings in his first two starts, but he's made four straight relief appearances since, throwing a total of 4 2/3 innings. He has a good shot of making the Phillies as a reliever, but he probably would have been their best internal option for the fifth spot in the rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Chen says he'll stay with team
    Indians manager Terry Francona said that Bruce Chen has indicated that he will remain with the organization.

    Advice: Chen signed a minor league deal with the Indians over the winter and was recently informed that he will not make the Opening Day roster. However, the 37-year-old southpaw will apparently stick around in the minors while waiting for an opportunity. The Indians have given him the right to opt out of his contract if an MLB job becomes available. Rotoworld.com

  • Huston Street obliterated by Rangers Tuesday
    Huston Street was obliterated in Tuesday's Cactus League outing against the Rangers, allowing six runs (five earned) on four hits over 1 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Street walked one and struck out a pair in the forgettable performance. It has been a tough spring for the 31-year-old right-hander who now sports a 12.46 ERA in 4 1/3 innings. It would be nice to see the usually dependable right-hander deliver a couple of clean outings before the regular season begins. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:38 pm
  • Sanchez, Norris unlikely to have IP limits
    MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm doesn't expect Aaron Sanchez and Daniel Norris to have strict innings limits this season.

    Advice: Sanchez threw a career-high 133 1/3 innings in 2014, while Norris threw a career-high 137 frames. Chisholm suspects that the Blue Jays will have a similar plan with the two youngsters as they did last season with Drew Hutchison, who threw 184 2/3 innings. Sanchez and Norris seem unlikely to reach that mark, but it sounds like they won't be shut down at any point if the Jays are in the playoff hunt. Sanchez and Norris are expected to fill the last two spots in Toronto's rotation. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:02 pm
  • Ken Giles throws perfect inning
    Ken Giles pitched a perfect ninth for a save Monday against the Twins.

    Advice: Giles was wild early this spring, giving up a run his first time out and five walks total in his first four innings. It looks like he's settling down now, though, pitching 2 2/3 innings without a free pass in his last two appearances. As long as it keeps up, his role as the Phillies' eighth inning guy will be safe. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:37 pm
  • Reds release LHP Mijares
    Reds released LHP Jose Mijares.

    Advice: Mijares, a non-roster invitee this spring, posted a 5.06 ERA with 4/1 K/BB ratio over 5 1/3 innings during Cactus League action. The 30-year-old will attempt to latch on elsewhere. Rotoworld.com

  • Tolleson scratched with forearm soreness
    Shawn Tolleson was scratched from a scheduled appearance Sunday with forearm soreness.

    Advice: The Rangers are saying they're not concerned and don't think it's serious. Tolleson was an effective reliever for the club last year, posting a 2.76 ERA in 71 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
