Ryan Williams did not have it in Wednesday's rain-shortened Cactus League game against the Reds, yielding five runs on five hits over 3 1/3 innings.

The game was called due to inclement weather in the fifth inning, but Williams had already been hit out of the game by that point in time. After hurling three scoreless frames, everything fell apart for Williams in the fourth. The collapse started with a two-run home run by Adam Duvall before it devolved into an eventual five-run inning for the Reds. Williams, 25, spent the 2016 season at Triple-A Iowa, where he posted a 3.27 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 30/12 K/BB ratio across nine starts (44 innings). He missed a large chunk of the campaign due to injury.

Angels optioned LHP Cody Ege to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Ege impressed this spring, having not allowed a run in nine appearances. That sparkling performance was not enough to land him on the Opening Day roster, but the 25-year-old lefty should serve as a usable arm for the Halos at some point this season. In 13 games with the Angels last season, Ege more than held his own, pitching to a 1.04 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 9/3 K/BB ratio.

Angels optioned RHP Justin Miller to Triple-A Salt Lake.

The Angels inked Miller to a minor league contract in November. In 40 appearances with the Rockies during the 2016 season, the 29-year-old right-hander put forth a rough 5.70 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 45/20 K/BB ratio. He will serve as organizational depth for the Angels until they need a filler arm in the pen.

Chris Johnson went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's Grapefruit League showdown with the Rays.

Johnson bopped a two-run home run off Chris Archer with one out in the fourth inning for his lone hit on the evening. The tater was his second of the spring. The Orioles signed him to a minor league contract in mid-February. He spent the 2016 season with the Marlins, when he saw 243 at-bats. In that space, the 32-year-old first baseman slashed a meager .222/.281/.329 with five homers and 24 RBI. There is no fantasy intrigue here.

Colby Rasmus went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and an RBI single in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles.

Rasmus is working his way into the groove late, having just made his spring debut on Sunday. The slow start is due to the fact that he underwent surgery to repair his left hip labrum and his core muscle in October. On Wednesday, the veteran outfielder came through with an RBI single in the first inning and a two-run home run in the fifth. While Rasmus has popped double-digit home runs in each of the past five seasons, health has been a major issue for him throughout his career. He has played in more than 120 games just once over the last four years.

Chris Archer posted an up-and-down Grapefruit League start against the Orioles on Wednesday, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Archer did strike out six, but on the whole, this wasn't the sharpest of outings. He yielded runs in the second, fourth and fifth innings, the loudest of those coming in the form of a two-run home run by Chris Johnson in the fourth. This past season, the 28-year-old Archer posted a 4.02 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 233/67 K/BB ratio across 201 1/3 innings (33 starts). It was something of a down campaign for the right-hander -- at least outside of the strikeouts -- but he remains a rock solid fantasy option in both mixed- and AL-only formats.

Chris Lee surrendered two runs on five hits across two innings in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays.

Lee struck out one and walked two on the evening. The Rays uncoiled for both their runs on his line in the first inning, with RBI singles off the bats of Brad Miller and Colby Rasmus doing the damage. In five appearances this spring, the 24-year-old Lee boasts a 2.77 ERA. He will likely be shuttled to minor league camp relatively soon, but could see work with the Orioles during the season.

Alex Meyer didn’t have his best stuff Wednesday in the Angels’ Cactus League loss to the Rangers, allowing five hits, five runs (four earned) and three walks over 2 1/3 innings.

He recorded two fly outs, one groundout and four strikeouts. The Rangers went to work right away, pounding Meyer for three runs in the opening frame. Meyer limited the damage to one run in the second but was lifted after creating another mess in the third. Meyer’s spring ERA shot up from 4.70 to 7.20 in the wake of Wednesday’s collapse. The 6’9" right-hander had an outside chance at winning a rotation spot earlier this spring, but now it looks like he’s probably destined for Triple-A.
