Corey Kluber surrendered five earned runs over five innings in his final Cactus League start Tuesday against the Brewers.
Kluber gave up two home runs to Orlando Arcia and one to Ryan Braun. He allowed six hits in total, with two walks and six strikeouts. It probably wasn't the final spring pitching line that Kluber was hoping for, but it's also nothing to worry about. The ace right-hander will start for the Indians on Opening Day against the Rangers.
Jacob May is expected to be the White Sox' Opening Day center fielder.
May has never played in the majors, but he earned the spot by batting .349/.369/.524 with one home run and four stolen bases this spring. Plus, the White Sox just don't have many options with Charlie Tilson (foot) sidelined and Peter Bourjos traded. May could be worth a late AL-only pick since he can steal some bases, but he might not get on base enough for it to matter.
Chris Marrero homered again Tuesday in the Giants' 10-7 Cactus League win over the Cubs.
It was a go-ahead three-run shot in the top of the ninth inning off Cubs right-hander Pierce Johnson. Marrero is tied for the Cactus League lead in home runs with seven, but the 28-year-old first baseman still appears ticketed for Triple-A Sacramento. He hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2013.
Enrique Hernandez will undergo X-rays after being hit on the right wrist by a pitch Tuesday.
The Dodgers should have an update on his status later Tuesday. Hernandez is again slated to serve as a bench player and occasional starter versus lefties this season.
Josh Rutledge has been diagnosed with a left hamstring strain.
Rutledge tweaked the hammy while going first to third on the bases Tuesday. He had been slated to make the Opening Day roster and likely see some starts against lefties, but a disabled list stint is probably now in order. It could open up a roster spot for Marco Hernandez.
Rookie Davis has made the Reds' rotation.
Davis earned a spot with a 4.02 ERA and 17 strikeouts over 15 2/3 innings this spring. Acquired from the Yankees in the Aroldis Chapman trade, Davis had a breakout 2015 but regressed in 2016 with a 3.82 ERA and just 77 strikeouts over 125 innings between Double- and Triple-A.
Nate Karns tossed six innings of one-run ball Tuesday in the Royals' Cactus League defeat of the White Sox.
Karns struck out seven and walked just one in what was his final official Cactus League outing. The right-hander is lined up to serve as the Royals' fifth starter in 2017 after being acquired from the Mariners in January for outfielder Jarrod Dyson.
Brandon Moss went 2-for-3 with his fourth home run of the spring Tuesday in the Royals' 7-4 Cactus League win over the White Sox.
The solo homer was a no-doubter off Chris Volstad in the bottom of the fourth inning. Moss is batting .302 with a .949 OPS this year in the Cactus League as he prepares himself to serve as Kansas City's primary designated hitter. The veteran slugger signed a two-year, $12 million free agent contract with the Royals in late January.
