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.

Todd Frazier clubbed his third Cactus League home run, his only hit in three at-bats, in Thursday's game against the Indians.

Frazier went yard against Danny Salazar in the first inning, staking his team to an early lead. It was only his ninth hit in 38 spring at-bats (.237). Frazier likely won't hit for a high average in 2015, but his combination of power and speed makes him a valuable fantasy asset. He hit 29 home runs and stole 20 bases last season.

Danny Salazar was lit up in Thursday's start against the Reds, surrendering seven runs (six earned) over 3 1/3 innings.

The Reds' first two runs came on a first-inning Todd Frazier solo home run and a second-inning Devon Mesoraco solo shot. From there, the floodgates opened, as Salazar gave up six hits overall, walked none, and struck out six. Salazar has been rather inconsistent, but he has the potential to be an elite fantasy asset if he can put it all together for an entire season.

Brady Aiken underwent Tommy John surgery on Wednesday.

Last year's No. 1 overall pick left his first outing with IMG Academy last Thursday with an arm injury, and now everyone's worst fears have been realized. Aiken, of course, didn't sign after being picked by the Astros but had a shot to again be the No. 1 pick in 2015. Now the young lefty will be sidelined for the next year-plus.
