Lucas Duda homered to account for all three Mets runs Tuesday against the Cardinals.

Things weren't looking good for Duda when he was dealing with back and hip issues a few weeks ago, but he hasn't had any issues since he resumed playing in games and he's hitting .244 with a .911 OPS in 41 at-bats. His fantasy upside still isn't what it was; not only will he sit against a lot of lefties, but he's probably going to be stuck hitting seventh behind Jay Bruce in the Mets lineup. Those two are going to draw a bunch of a lefty relievers while paired together.

Pirates optioned INF Gift Ngoepe to Triple-A Indianapolis; re-assigned INF Jason Rogers to minor league camp.

Ngoepe went 18-for-42 at the plate this spring, but he was never really in the running for a roster spot. The 27-year-old is coming off a terrible season at Indy, so he could use more seasoning.
Mar 28 - 4:26 PM

Pirates optioned LHP Steven Brault to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Brault put up a solid 3.45 ERA across 15 2/3 innings this spring, but that wasn't enough to win the final spot in the Pirates' rotation. The fifth spot is now down to Tyler Glasnow, Drew Hutchison and Trevor Williams.

ByungHo Park walked and homered for the only run of the game as the Twins beat the Rays 1-0 on Tuesday.

Park has won a starting job by hitting .362 with five homers and an 1.149 OPS this spring. What he hasn't done is convince Paul Molitor he deserves to bat in the middle of the order; he hit seventh in this one and might stay there when the games start to count. If he keeps it up, he'll have to get a look in the fourth or fifth spot eventually.
Mar 28 - 4:20 PM

Brandon Kintzler notched a save with a perfect ninth in a 1-0 game Tuesday against the Rays.

After a slow start to his spring, Kintzler has turned in scoreless innings in five of his six appearances this month. He'll open up as the Twins' closer, and while that's probably not his ideal role, there's absolutely no one breathing down his next for the job.
Mar 28 - 4:18 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday that he hasn't decided yet whether Aaron Judge or Aaron Hicks will be the starter in right field.

Judge entered spring training as the presumed favorite and has batted .321/.390/.509 with two homers and a solid 12/6 K/BB ratio over 53 at-bats. If that's not enough to win the job, then perhaps the intention all along was to send him back to Triple-A for more seasoning. Hicks has also had a nice spring with a .286/.375/.571 line and three longballs. Worth noting is that Hicks is in the Yanks' Grapefruit League lineup Tuesday and Girardi said it could be similar to the one he'll use Opening Day.
Mar 28 - 4:16 PM

Chris Archer threw three scoreless innings and struck out four Tuesday against the Twins.

You'll notice that most starters will go fewer innings in their final starts of the spring, as was certainly the case here. Archer's next appearance will be in Sunday's regular-season opener against the Yankees. He had a 1.98 ERA in four spring starts, plus a scoreless, four-inning appearance for Team USA against Colombia.
Mar 28 - 4:16 PM

Mallex Smith went 0-for-3 from the leadoff spot Tuesday and is hitting just .167 this spring.

If Smith is in the Opening Day lineup, as seems likely, it certainly won't be because he earned it with his play this spring; to go along with the .167 average, he has just two walks and one extra-base hit in 36 at-bats. The speed makes him intriguing for fantasy purposes, but he's probably going to get some Triple-A time once Colby Rasmus comes off the disabled list.
