Khris Davis walked and hit a grand slam in four trips to the plate Thursday against the Mariners.

Davis cleared the bases with a grand slam to left field off of Roenis Elias in the first inning. Though it was his first homer of the spring, Davis has been hitting extremely well in Cactus League play, batting .389 (14-for-36) with 12 RBI. Davis will get regular at-bats out of left field and could improve on last year's numbers, when he finished with 22 home runs and 69 RBI in 549 plate appearances.

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale reiterated on Thursday that Yasmany Tomas could begin the season in the minors.

"Yeah, there's a definite chance," Hale said. "It's going to come down to us all sitting down and everybody talking about what's best for the major league team." It's well known that Tomas has had issues at third base, but he's also been inconsistent at the plate and the D'Backs may choose to ease the pressure on him by putting him at Triple-A to begin the year. Hale added that the club hasn't moved Tomas off of third base yet and said that the Cuban defector could wind up playing both third and left field, whether that's in the majors or minors.

Mike Fiers limited the Mariners to one run over 3 2/3 innings in Thursday's Cactus League start.

Fiers had missed his previously-scheduled start due to weakness in his throwing shoulder, but looked fine facing the Mariners. He held them to three hits and a walk, though he didn't register a strikeout. The shoulder problem is a little concerning heading into the season and is worth keeping an eye on. Fiers is hoping to pick up where he left off last season, with a 2.13 ERA and a 76/17 K/BB ratio over 71 2/3 innings.

Roenis Elias struggled in Thursday's start against the Brewers, yielding six runs in three innings.

Elias may have lost his shot at a spot in the Mariners' rotation with the flimsy performance. He was taken for eight hits while walking three and striking out one on the afternoon. Taijuan Walker has been lights out this spring and has all but wrapped up the No. 5 spot in the rotation. Elias is likely headed to Triple-A Tacoma to begin the season.

Brandon Phillips went 1-for-5 in Thursday's 13-2 drubbing of the Indians in Cactus League action.

Phillips remains cold this spring, as his performance drops his average to .205 (8-for-39). Half of his hits are doubles, but that's been the extent of his offensive performance. Phillips hit a career-low eight home runs and knocked in a career-low 51 runs over a near-full slate of plate appearances last season, so the Reds are hoping for a rebound effort from the 33-year-old.

Ryan Ludwick has been told he will not make the Rangers' Opening Day roster.

The club has yet to make an official move with the non-roster invitee, but Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News says Ludwick is "considering his options." The veteran outfielder had been battling with a host of others for at-bats in left field. He seems likely to ask for his release so that he can try to catch on elsewhere.

Devin Mesoraco went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Thursday facing the Indians.

Mesoraco hit a second-inning solo home run off of Danny Salazar, his second long ball of the spring. The catcher has been playing once every three days over the last week and a half, as he's been slowed a bit this spring since taking a foul ball off of his mask. Mesoraco should still be ready to go when the regular season begins.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Thursday that Jake Petricka is dealing with some soreness in his throwing arm.

The skipper indicated that it's merely "normal spring training soreness" and that he expects the setup man to be fine. "We have a few guys that are doing that right now," Ventura said. "When they are ready to go, they are ready to go. I don't think it's anything that's going to make them miss the start of the season." Closer David Robertson is also nursing minor soreness in his forearm, so it's possible ninth-inning duties could fall to Zach Putnam should Robertson and Petricka recover more slowly than expected. At this point, though, the White Sox don't seem to be worried.
