Gerald Laird plated the Diamondbacks' lone run with a sacrifice fly in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

The veteran backstop had an opportunity to seize the team's starting job behind the plate this spring, but has hit just .200 (5-for-25) with four RBI. He's expected to begin the season as a backup to Tuffy Gosewisch, combining to form the worst catching combination in Major League Baseball.

Daniel Hudson pitched well in Sunday's Cactus League start against the Rockies, scattering three hits and two walks over 3 2/3 scoreless innings.

The 28-year-old hurler struck out four in the ballgame. While he has already been informed that he'll make the team's Opening Day roster, it's still up in the air whether he'll function as a starter or reliever. While he's difficult to trust coming off of a second Tommy John surgery, he'd be an interesting name to watch in mixed leagues if he indeed lands a starting job.

Jedd Gyorko went 2-for-3 and drove home a pair of runs on Sunday as the Padres bested the Mariners 8-5 in Cactus League action.

Gyorko plated a run with an RBI single in the first inning then repeated the process again in the third. The two-hit effort raises his spring average to .250 (12-for-48), though he has just one homer and three RBI. He's looking to rebound from a dreadful 2014 season where he hit just .210/.280/.333 with 10 long balls in 111 games.
Mar 29 - 10:14 PM

Andrew Cashner was in mid-season form in Sunday's Cactus League victory over the Mariners, racking up six strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings.

Cashner allowed just one run on four hits and a walk in the contest, that lone run coming on a solo blast off the bat of Jabari Henry. While he's no longer considered the ace of the Padres staff, he has certainly pitched like one this spring, compiling a 2.45 ERA and 14/4 K/BB ratio over 18 1/3 frames.
Mar 29 - 10:11 PM

Dustin Ackley swatted his first Cactus League home run as the Mariners fell to the Padres on Sunday.

Ackley victimized Chris Rearick for the two-run shot in the seventh inning, pulling the M's to within three runs at 6-3. He also added a double, finishing the day 2-for-3. Set to serve as the M's primary left fielder, Ackley has had a terrific spring, hitting .366 (15-for-41) with 10 RBI.
Mar 29 - 10:06 PM

J.A. Happ was once again obliterated in a losing effort against the Padres on Sunday, surrendering six runs (five earned) on 11 hits over his five innings.

Happ issued a pair of walks and struck out three on the afternoon. He now owns a troublesome 7.90 ERA and 1.98 WHIP in 13 2/3 spring innings. The Mariners brass has to be considering if they'd be better off with Roenis Elias in the rotation instead of Happ at this point.

Rangers released OF Ryan Ludwick.

Ludwick was informed earlier in the week that he would not make the team's Opening Day roster, and apparently has elected to seek a better opportunity. The 36-year-old batted just .200/.188/.300 with a homer and three RBI in 30 Cactus League at-bats.

Dan Pfeiffer of MLBlogs.com reports that Yankees prospect Domingo German could require Tommy John surgery.

German, who was acquired over the winter as part of the Martin Prado deal, posted the news on his Instagram account on Sunday. The Yankees have yet to confirm the report, saying that they'll seek a second opinion before determining a course of action. Expect an update on his status in the next few days.
