Zach Putnam was sidelined Wednesday with a stomach ailment.

Putnam was kept out of Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers as a result. It's been a rough start to spring for the 27-year-old, who has also nursed back tightness in the early days of camp. The stomach issue shouldn't keep him out long, so he's day to day for now.
Mar 4 - 6:09 PM

Joc Pederson singled, doubled, and scored a run in two at-bats in Wednesday's Cactus League opener.

Pederson figures to be the Dodgers' starting center fielder on Opening Day. He recorded only four singles in 28 at-bats in September last season, his first taste of big league competition. The Dodgers have high expectations for the 22-year-old, though, who is a potential 20 HR/20 SB candidate.
Mar 4 - 6:06 PM

Adam LaRoche, in two at-bats on Wednesday, doubled in a pair of runs and scored a run.

The White Sox are counting on LaRoche to have another productive year at the age of 35. He will have the luxury of not having to play defense as he'll serve as the club's primary DH throughout the year. LaRoche posted an .817 OPS with 26 home runs and 92 RBI last season.
Mar 4 - 6:02 PM

Ji-Man Choi has been diagnosed with a fractured right fibula.

Choi suffered the injury when he tried to reach for a bad throw from shortstop Tyler Smith near the end of Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Padres. The 23-year-old first baseman will obviously be out for an extended period of time. He hit .282/.386/.403 with six home runs and 35 RBI in 74 games last season between Double-A Jackson and Triple-A Tacoma.
Mar 4 - 6:00 PM

Alexei Ramirez notched two hits in three at-bats and knocked in a trio of runs in Wednesday's Cactus League opener.

Ramirez bursts out of the gate with a nice showing. He singled in a run in the second inning, then doubled in a pair in the fifth. The shortstop had his best offensive showing in years last season, finishing with 15 home runs, 74 RBI, and 21 stolen bases. Ramirez's combination of power and speed arguably make him a top-five fantasy shortstop.
Mar 4 - 5:59 PM

Carlos Moncrief had a perfect day, finishing 4-for-4 with a double and two runs scored as the Indians topped the Reds 4-2 on Wednesday.

Moncrief went hitless in two at-bats in Tuesday's Cactus League opener. The 26-year-old posted decent numbers at Triple-A Columbus last season and is headed there to open the season again. If the Indians trade away an outfielder or two, or suffer injuries, Moncrief could get a shot in the show during the season.
Mar 4 - 5:52 PM

Anthony DeSclafani allowed one run over two innings in Wednesday's Cactus League loss to the Indians.

DeSclafani gave a one-out double to Carlos Moncrief, who advanced to third base on a fielding error by first baseman Chris Dominguez and came around to score on a sacrifice fly. The right-hander, acquired from the Marlins during the offseason, appears to have a good shot at making the Reds' rotation. Despite a 6.27 ERA in 33 innings last season, DeSclafani posted an impressive 26/5 K/BB ratio, which gives him a lot of utility if he can repeat it over a larger sample size.
Mar 4 - 5:49 PM

Raisel Iglesias, making his spring training debut, surrendered two unearned runs in a loss against the Indians on Wednesday.

Iglesias allowed a single, walked two, and uncorked two wild pitches. He was also hurt by a fielding error from third baseman Neftali Soto. That's obviously not the first impression Iglesias wanted to make, but he'll have plenty of time to right the ship. The Reds like his arsenal and see him as a starting pitcher though he was used mostly as a reliever in Cuba.
