Nick Tepesch was hit hard by the Dodgers, giving up seven runs on nine hits in 3 2/3 innings on Sunday.

It's the second time this spring Tepesch has allowed seven runs, and now sports an ugly 10.38 ERA in 17 1/3 Cactus League innings. He lost out on the No. 5 spot in the Rangers' rotation to Nick Martinez, and is now pitching for a long relief role.

Miguel Montero walked, singled, and hit a solo home run in five plate appearances as the Cubs shut out the Royals 7-0 on Sunday.

Montero gave the Cubs an early lead with a first-inning solo shot off of Edinson Volquez. The catcher has had a forgettable spring, as he's now batting a meager .189 (7-for-37) with two home runs and two RBI. Montero has posted subpar offensive numbers in the last two seasons but the Cubs are hoping for a resurgence in 2015.

Tommy La Stella went 3-for-3 and scored a run in Sunday's Cactus League match-up with the Royals.

All three hits were singles, raising his average to .333 (13-for-39). Only two of his 13 hits have gone for extra bases (a double and a triple), which is emblematic of what to expect of him during the regular season. La Stella will mostly contribute off the bench.
Mar 29 - 7:21 PM

Edwin Jackson threw the ball well on Sunday against the Royals, racking up 4 2/3 scoreless frames.

The right-hander yielded just one hit and one walk while punching out three batters. Jackson has allowed 15 runs in 15 1/3 innings this spring, but six of them are unearned. The Cubs are hoping Jackson's turnaround has come just in time for the start of the regular season. He's still battling Travis Wood for the No. 5 spot in the rotation.
Mar 29 - 7:16 PM

Edinson Volquez fanned eight while allowing two runs in five innings in his start on Sunday against the Cubs.

Volquez finally had a positive outing, entering the afternoon having allowed 13 earned runs in 12 1/3 innings. He limited the Cubs to six hits and a walk along with the eight strikeouts. The right-hander should get one more spring tune-up before the regular season begins.
Mar 29 - 7:14 PM

Athletics reassigned INF Andy Parino, C Luke Carlin and 1B Max Muncy to minor league camp.

The 29-year-old Parrino hit just .196 (9-for-46) with 11 strikeouts in Cactus League play. He'll continue to function as organizational infield depth for the A's. Carlin is expected to return to big league camp on Tuesday where he'll catch for Barry Zito.
Mar 29 - 6:55 PM

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

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.
Mar 29 - 6:52 PM

Chris Perez was removed from Sunday's Cactus League game with a minor right ankle sprain.

The veteran right-hander recorded just one out before he succumbed to the injury. The Brewers are expected to make a decision early in the week whether or not Perez will win a spot in the team's Opening Day bullpen.
