Andrew Heaney struggled in Sunday's start against the Reds, surrendering six runs in five innings of work.

Four of the runs scored in the third inning, including three on a Chris Dominguez home run. Heaney, who will start the season at Triple-A Salt Lake, gave up eight hits and a walk while striking out five. In Cactus League action, he has a 9.00 ERA in 19 innings this spring along with a 16/7 K/BB ratio.

Brennan Boesch continued to swing a hot bat on Sunday against the Angels, finishing 2-for-5 with an RBI double.

Boesch has hit in four consecutive spring games, three of which included multiple hits. He's hitting .385 (20-for-52) with three doubles, four home runs, and 14 RBI. The Reds are almost certain to include him as a bench player on the 25-man roster when spring training ends.

Chris Dominguez had a fantastic day at the plate on Sunday against the Angels, going 4-for-5 with two doubles and a three-run home run.

Dominguez crushed a three-run home run off of Andrew Heaney in the third inning, then added an RBI double in the top of the ninth to polish off a terrific afternoon. He's currently batting .340 (17-for-50) with three home runs and 13 RBI in Cactus League play. Dominguez's strong spring may be enough for the Reds to give him one of the final spots on their 25-man roster.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia indicated Sunday that Andrew Heaney will likely begin the season at Triple-A Salt Lake.

Scioscia said that the team won't need a fifth starter until April 14, and will "most likely" head north with just four starting pitchers. The 23-year-old could have solidified his rotation spot with a strong showing in the spring, but surrendered 19 runs in his 19 innings of work. Heaney could still get his opportunity when a fifth starter is needed, depending on the availability of Garrett Richards.

Cory Luebke (elbow) said that he felt great after Sunday's bullpen session.

"It felt like my old arm again" Luebke noted after the 30-pitch session. He'll repeat the same process again in 3-4 days and is still at least a month away from facing live hitters. The 30-year-old hurler is working his way back from a second Tommy John surgery and isn't expected to rejoin the Padres until midseason.

David Robertson (forearm) felt good after his scoreless inning of work in Sunday's Cactus League contest.

Robertson got three ground ball outs and allowed a double in his inning of work. After the White Sox closer indicated he was "feeling better than I did earlier in camp. Just needed some time to get the soreness out." It looks as though he should be ready to go for Opening Day and can safely be selected among the second tier of closers in fantasy drafts.

Rougned Odor was removed from Sunday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers with a bruised shin.

Odor appeared to get spiked as Adrian Gonzalez slid into second base on his fourth inning double. The Rangers have listed him as day-to-day, so the minor injury shouldn't impact his availability for the start of the regular season.
Mar 29 - 6:03 PM

Twins sent RHP Stephen Pryor outright to Triple-A Rochester.

Pryor cleared waivers and elected to remain with the club where he'll serve as additional bullpen depth. The 25-year-old should receive an opportunity with the big league club at some point during the season.
