Happy Friday, everyone! This will be the last weekend of spring training baseball. Next weekend, the games count.
Padres 7, Indians 6
Trevor Bauer looked excellent over six innings, fanning seven and allowing just the one run on a Manuel Margot home run. The same cannot be said for Andrew Miller, however; the elite bullpen arm had a rough outing, allowing four runs in just two-thirds of an inning.
Two seasoned relief arms are looking to start the season with the Cleveland Indians, but it is unclear as to whether either Matt Belisle or Carlos Torres will make the team.
Around the league
- Albert Pujols is a fantastic baseball player and an even better father.
- How do three players and two coaches get ejected in a spring training game? Just ask the Tigers and the Phillies!
- Jeff Samardzija will most likely start the season on the DL due to a pectoral strain.
- Recent legislation is looking great for minor league players.
- Despite what Yahoo says, I still believe that the Twins were more than a Jake Odorizzi and a Lance Lynn away from winning the AL Central.
- Grant Brisbee has some predictions for you.
