Chase Utley hit a pair of homers and walked Sunday as the Phillies and Tigers played to a 4-4 tie.

The homers off Anibal Sanchez were the first he's hit this spring. Utley, though, hasn't played as much as most, partly because of a sprained ankle and partly because he doesn't really need to. He's batting .423 in 26 at-bats.

Despite striking out 10, Anibal Sanchez gave up four runs in 6 1/3 innings Sunday against the Phillies.

Sanchez surrendered three homers, two of them off the bat of Chase Utley, on a day in which the wind wasn't much of a factor. He's given up six homers in 24 2/3 innings overall this spring, an especially high total for a Florida pitcher.

Yoenis Cespedes went 2-for-4 and hit his fourth homer against the Phillies on Sunday.

Despite minor quad and back injuries costing him time earlier this month, Cespedes has four homers in 49 at-bats this spring. Unfortunately, it looks like he'll open the season batting sixth in the Detroit lineup. We hope that will change at some point, but he'll suffer in runs scored until it does.

X-Rays came back negative on the hand and wrist of L.J. Hoes on Sunday.

Hoes was drilled by a pitch in Saturday's Cactus League contest, but luckily avoided and breaks in either his hand or his wrist. He should be able to return to the lineup in a couple of days once the swelling subsides.

Jimmy Paredes doubled twice Sunday in the Orioles' 4-2 win over the Blue Jays.

It'll be easier for the Orioles to carry Paredes if either David Lough or J.J. Hardy starts off on the disabled list. The switch-hitter is batting .383/.388/.681 with 12 RBI in 47 at-bats. He's out of options, and since he can hit for average and play multiple positions, he'd probably be picked up quickly if the Orioles let him go.
Mar 29 - 4:30 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez turned in another nice performance Sunday, allowing one run over six innings versus the Blue Jays.

Jimenez walked one and struck out three against something very close to the Jays' regular-season lineup. The Orioles are clearly giving a lot of thought to going with Jimenez in the rotation and putting Kevin Gausman in the pen. The problem there is less about Jimenez and more about Gausman having the highest ceiling on the staff. Jimenez, at least, is looking like a better bet that he was a few weeks ago. He's walked just two batters over 19 innings in his last four starts.
Mar 29 - 4:28 PM

Mark Buehrle allowed one run over five innings Sunday in his start against the Orioles.

The Blue Jays aren't worried about hiding Buehrle: his last three spring starts have all come against divisional foes. He's penciled in as the team's fourth starter, allowing him to pitch the home opener.
Mar 29 - 4:24 PM

Casey Janssen is set to undergo an MRI exam on his ailing shoulder.

Janssen reported soreness in his shoulder and had difficulty getting loose before his last outing. The Nationals should have an update on his status after the exam, though he appears likely to begin the season on the disabled list.
