Marcell Ozuna St. Louis Cardinals

He's been making amends with his bat ever since. Six homers in his last seven games.

Ketel Marte Arizona Diamondbacks

The catch of the year just made by Ketel Marte in center field in Wrigley. He didn't come within a country mile of the previous fly ball. The wind has got the D'backs totally freaked.

It's hilarious. No way anyone's hitting a home run but if they get it in the air there's a good chance of a triple.

Jason Martin Pittsburgh Pirates

Descalso.

Tyler White Houston Astros

Still looking for his first ribbie. I liked the walks and XBH in spring training, not to mention what he did last year in Triple-A (especially the K/W), and put him on my Doubt team.

Blake Swihart Boston Red Sox

What exactly is Swihart doing in the minors? Is he the fall guy?

Jackie Bradley Jr. Boston Red Sox

His solid spring training (.326/.370/.628 in 43 AB) did not carry forward.

Rotowire reports, a strong candidate to replace Peralta

Joseph Lannon Comett
Michael Chavis Boston Red Sox

Timing is everything. Just finished a Podcast and mentioned that Chavis is getting work in at 2B down on the farm and recommended an early buy. I just didn't realize that it would be this early, but with Nunez hitting the DL, Chavis could be doing some learning on the job in Boston.

Chance Sisco Baltimore Orioles

I was very much aware of his futility on the Orioles last year. I wish I had been more aware of his stats back in Triple-A when I made him my third pick in the reserve draft.

Christian Walker Arizona Diamondbacks

Fifth double and sixth homer yesterday.

One of his homers this spring must have been in a B game. And even without it he slugged .612. 

The Three Amigos were no more impressed than Syd was.

Jay Bruce Seattle Mariners

Now has two singles among his 12 hits. Pinch hit in the top of the ninth with the score tied 10-10 and a runner on second. Hit a routine grounder to shortstop to beat the shift, the shortstop being over in short right field. Mariners led by 10-2 at one point. Bruce's roller stopped their losing streak at six.

In 32 spring training AB he had a .478 BABIP. In the 68 AB that count his BABIP is .111. His G/L/F is 18/16/66. I'll take a wild guess that he's hit one grounder to the left of second.

Reyes Moronta San Francisco Giants

Looked through that mlb.com article ... they seemed obsessed with picking guys still aways away from proving something, rather than looking at the dominant guys right under their noses.

Phil Ponebshek Texpope
Ryan McMahon Colorado Rockies

Hampson is finally starting to show a pulse (.748 OPS over his last 6 games, playing every day) ... Dahl is back ... Tapia is showing improvement ... when Murphy comes back, Ian Desmond might become a $30+ million DFA.

Phil Ponebshek Texpope
Chris Sale Boston Red Sox

His two spring training starts: 9 IP, 4 H, 1 BB, 13 SO, no runs.

It certainly would seem he needed a third.

Cody Bellinger Los Angeles Dodgers

Hit his tenth homer last night. The only player on the planet who's hotter than Yelich, but unlike Yelich he did not have a good spring training. Good contact when he made contact (four doubles and four homers among his 12 hits) but he hit .226 and struck out 16 times.

Homer Bailey Kansas City Royals

I may need to eat crow!

Thomas Rosenthal TommyR
Roman Quinn Philadelphia Phillies

The Golden Sombrero in his season debut.

In 27 rehab games (both A and AAA) he slashed .370/.452/.593 and stole two bases in three attempts. But he also fanned 11 times.

Alex Patton Alex
Griffin Canning Los Angeles Angels

He struggled in AAA last year after promotion, but has been great through three starts so far this season.  If the Angels stay within striking distance of the Wild Card, he's the guy who will join the rotation to give them a boost in the second half.  If not, they may keep him down all year, because that's what teams do now.

Eugene Freedman EugeneFreed
Christian Yelich Milwaukee Brewers

It's interesting that he did not walk once during spring training. Otherwise he was on his game. (For the record -- we won't be showing the spring training stats beyond April -- he slashed .442/.442/.837 in 43 AB.)

Alex Patton Alex
Ryan McMahon Colorado Rockies

Two homer and a single last night, driving in five.

His great spring training earned him the gig and it looks like he's not going to blow it.
