Josh Collmenter allowed one run over five innings Wednesday as the Braves and Mets played to a 2-2 tie.

The Braves would prefer not to need Collmenter as a starter this year, but he'll be ready to step in if needed. In the meantime, he'll hope to vulture some wins in middle relief.

Mets prospect Luis Guilorme went 2-for-3 with a walk Wednesday against the Braves.

Guillorme is known for his glove, which rates as one of the very best in the minors, but he's done nice work with the bat this spring, hitting .300 with a homer and a 3/5 K/BB ratio in 40 at-bats. He'll need to keep that up in the minors this year to be looked at as a future defense-first utilityman.

Gregory Polanco (shoulder) will hit and run the bases in a minor league game on Thursday.

Polanco put in 10 minor league AB's at Pirate City on Wednesday and also threw from 90 feet out. He is rehabbing from left shoulder discomfort which sidelined him from spring play over the weekend. Assuming he suffers no set-back with Thursday's light minors action, he will play seven innings in the outfield at Pirate City on Friday. These are all positive signs for his Opening Day availability.

Aaron Altherr went 3-for-5 wand hit his fourth homer as a Phillies split-squad beat the Pirates 8-2 on Wednesday.

Altherr was set to be the Phillies' right fielder before the team signed Michael Saunders, and the team probably would have been content to keep him in that starting role had they known he was going to be this impressive this spring. He should wind up with ample playing time anyway. He can start over Saunders against lefties initially, and Saunders is about as fragile as outfielders come. Plus, odds are that either Saunders or Howie Kendrick will be traded by the July 31 deadline. It makes Altherr plenty interesting as a fifth outfielder in NL-only leagues,

Red Sox manager John Farrell said that the team would like to see Drew Pomeranz stretched to around 90 pitches before locking him into the rotation.

Pomeranz threw 76 pitches in a Grapefruit League game against the Twins on Wednesday. He will make a final minor league tune-up start on Monday, with the goal being to stretch him out for rotational work. Farrell said that the Sox will not give a "rubber stamp" to Pomeranz as fifth starter until they feel confident that he will be able to give them starting innings.

Gerrit Cole surrendered three solo homers over three innings Wednesday against the Phillies.

Wind was a factor on two of the homers (Aaron Altherr's, on the other hand, was crushed), so it wasn't all too bad of a day for Cole. He walked one and struck out three before being lifted. Even though he's healthy, he ended up making just three official starts this spring, allowing four runs in 10 innings.

Trevor Williams threw four scoreless innings in relief Wednesday against the Phillies.

With Drew Hutchison and Steven Brault sent out, the fifth spot in Pittsburgh's rotation is between Williams and Tyler Glasnow. The team would have room for both if Williams were stashed in the pen, so that might be how they open the year. Williams isn't a big upside guy, but he has been impressive this spring, posting a 2.04 ERA and an 18/2 K/BB ratio in 17 2/3 innings.

Kennys Vargas (foot) went 0-for-3 in minor league action on Wednesday.

After taking his hacks, Vargas indicated that there had been no increase of swelling in his injured left foot and that he felt good. The 26-year-old initially suffered the injury after fouling a ball off his hoof on March 24. His availability for Opening Day has not yet been determined, but that should clarify relatively soon.
