Aroldis Chapman was removed from Tuesday's appearance for precautionary reasons due to a right hamstring injury.

Chapman was pulled from the game after a long discussion with Reds coaches and trainers. The closer wanted to continue and insists that his hamstring is fine, so it sounds like this isn't anything to worry about. Expect Chapman to be available to pitch in a day or two.

X-rays on Andre Ethier's right elbow showed no fracture.

Ethier was plunked during Tuesday's game but has managed to avoid a serious injury. He could return to game action as soon as Thursday.

Aroldis Chapman was pulled from Tuesday's Cactus League game with an apparent injury.

Chapman appeared to be arguing that he was fine to stay in, but the flame-throwing closer ultimately exited the field with a large contingent of Reds coaches and trainers. Chapman had faced just one batter. There should be an update on his status shortly.

Ichiro Suzuki went 2-for-2 with an RBI and two steals as the Marlins topped the Cardinals 3-2 on Tuesday.

Ichiro is hitting .293 in 41 at-bats this spring. He's in line for pretty much every start that doesn't go to one of the Marlins' regular outfielders this season. That said, Christian Yelich, Marcell Ozuna and Giancarlo Stanton really don't figure to get many days off while healthy.

Pete Kozma went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored Tuesday against the Marlins.

At this point, it's no longer a question of whether Kozma will hit .400 this year. No, we're just waiting to see if he bats .500. He's at .435 in 46 at-bats this spring, but he's just warming up.

Joe Blanton will report to Triple-A Omaha.

Blanton was considering using the April 1 opt-out in his minor league contract, but the Royals convinced him to stay in the organization. The veteran right-hander has another opt-out date on May 15.

Blake Swihart went 2-for-3 with a triple and three RBI as the Red Sox scored nine runs in the top of the ninth to beat a Rays split-squad 11-8 on Tuesday.

Sure, it was against a few pitchers who figure to play no role for the Rays this year, but it's not every day a team scores nine in the ninth to win. Swihart's triple was Boston's only extra-base hit of the game. He's hit .333 with a homer in 30 at-bats this spring. The Red Sox are making the right move in sending him down -- he had just a .659 OPS after moving up to Triple-A last year -- but it wouldn't be much of surprise to see him starting for the club come June or July.
Mar 31 - 5:22 PM

Rusney Castillo had three hits in six at-bats against the Rays on Tuesday.

It's undeniable that Castillo has been more impressive than Shane Victorino this spring. The Red Sox also have no real financial incentive to send Castillo down to Triple-A. Still, it's practically certain that they'll go that route unless Victorino or Allen Craig is traded before the week is out.
