Chad Kuhl has officially won a spot in the Pirates' rotation.

There had never really been any doubt. Kuhl entered camp as a big favorite to capture a spot, and he won one with a 3.75 ERA and 0.75 WHIP over four starts this spring. The 24-year-old should be a solid enough starter for Pittsburgh, but he doesn't miss enough bats to be useful outside of deep fantasy leagues.

Jake Arrieta yielded three earned runs over four innings Tuesday in his Cactus League start against the Giants.

Denard Span led off the game with a solo homer and then Jarrett Parker followed a Brandon Crawford double with an RBI single. San Francisco struck again in the second inning when Span singled, stole second base, and scored on an Arrieta wild pitch. It's been a mediocre spring so far for the 31-year-old right-hander, but he still carries top-tier fantasy upside into the 2017 campaign.

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Tuesday of Gregory Polanco (shoulder) that the team is "still optimistic that he'll be a go."

Polanco has been on the shelf for a few days due to a sore left shoulder and he won't resume throwing until at least this weekend. The shoulder has been a recurring issue for him, including during the second half last season. He's still hitting and the Pirates remain hopeful, but this situation obviously should be monitored closely.

Julio Urias tossed 2 2/3 scoreless innings Tuesday in his Cactus League start against the Padres.

Urias wasn't allowed to take the outing any longer than that because he isn't properly stretched out. That is also why he will not be on the Dodgers' active roster to open the 2017 regular season. Look for the young left-hander to arrive in the majors for good sometime in mid-to-late April.

Antonio Senzatela gave up three earned runs over five innings Tuesday in his Cactus League start against the Rangers.

Senzatela was doing fine until the top of the fifth, when the Rangers plated three runs on two singles and two doubles. The 22-year-old right-hander has allowed nine runs -- seven earned -- in 10 1/3 innings since Rockies manager Bud Black named him a legitimate candidate for the Opening Day rotation. The final spot is probably going to go to Kyle Freeland.

A.J. Griffin allowed two earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Tuesday in his Cactus League start against the Rockies.

Both tallies came on a two-run shot in the fourth inning by Rockies first baseman Mark Reynolds. Griffin walked three and gave up six hits while striking out only two batters. He is expected to make the Rangers' season-opening starting rotation, but the 29-year-old right-hander can be ignored in most standard fantasy leagues.
Mar 28 - 5:29 PM

Tanner Scheppers (abdomen) will return to game action Wednesday.

Scheppers exited an appearance Friday with a left abdominal strain, but it was a minor issue. He could still make the Opening Day roster if he doesn't have a setback.
Mar 28 - 5:22 PM

Brian McCann hit his third homer of the spring off Edinson Volquez as the Astros beat the Marlins 7-3 on Tuesday.

McCann also walked in the game. With a .279 average and an .831 OPS, it's been his best spring since 2010, back when he was with the Braves. His fantasy upside is lower now that he's left Yankee Stadium, but maybe the change will be good for his game offensively; he never hit for any sort of average while always taking aim at that short porch in right field.
