Player Notes

  • Profar has RBI single, two walks vs. Royals
    Jurickson Profar had an RBI single and two walks in three plate appearances Sunday against the Royals.

    Advice: It was the first Cactus League action of the spring for Profar, who is projected to open the 2017 regular season as the Rangers' primary left fielder. Profar started at shortstop Sunday with Elvis Andrus finishing up his rehabilitation from November hernia surgery. The 24-year-old former top prospect owns a weak .235/.311/.341 batting line in 184 career major league games, but there is still some upside here. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:19 pm

  • Nelson Cruz homers as Mariners rout Padres
    Nelson Cruz went 2-for-2 with a home run, two RBI, a walk, and two runs scored Sunday in the Mariners' 13-2 exhibition rout of the Padres.

    Advice: Cruz launched a solo shot off Padres right-hander Zach Lee in the bottom of the second inning and then drew a walk with the bases loaded in the bottom of the third. He also singled in the bottom of the fourth. A pretty good three-inning stretch for the veteran slugger, who also went deep Saturday in his Cactus League debut. "Boomstick" is already ready for meaningful baseball games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:55 pm
  • Nori Aoki reaches twice in victory
    Nori Aoki went 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored Sunday in the Astros' 3-2 win over the Braves.

    Advice: Aoki played center field today. That's going to be George Springer's position this year, so the Astros hope they won't have much need for Aoki there. He's likely to play left field when Carlos Beltran serves as a DH. It's still to be determined how often that is going to happen. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:51 pm
  • Healy cleared for games after quad issue
    Ryon Healy reported to Athletics camp with a minor quad injury but has been cleared to play in games.

    Advice: The ailment had gone unreported until now, but it doesn't sound like a big deal as long as Healy can avoid a setback. The 25-year-old was one of the few bright spots for the A's last season, batting .305/.337/.524 with 13 homers over 283 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:26 am
  • Matheny says Wong injury not a big deal
    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Sunday that Kolten Wong's right shoulder injury "got made into a bigger deal than it ought to."

    Advice: The skipper added that Wong will make his Grapefruit League debut on Monday. "I heard that got made into a bigger deal than it ought to," said Matheny. "(Wong) wasn’t too happy this morning as to how it was interpreted because it was interpreted as we’re just being cautious. He’s going to be playing tomorrow. He’s doing just fine." Matheny can downplay the ailment all he wants, but the fact that Wong's shoulder is still sore five months after he was injured is a concern. It's something to keep an eye on this spring.
