Tim Lincecum struck out seven but permitted four runs -- three earned -- over five innings of work Thursday against the Athletics.

He allowed four hits and walked a pair in what really was a pretty typical Lincecum performance. The righty-hander has recorded 14 strikeouts over 13 Cactus League innings but also holds a 6.92 ERA. Lincecum has pitched better than Yusmeiro Petit and Ryan Vogelsong, which means he'll likely begin the season in the rotation. His leash will be short, though.

Nick Martinez recorded four strikeouts while spinning six scoreless frames Thursday against the Rockies.

He yielded five hits (four of them were singles) while walking one. It's a performance that just might be enough to wrap up the fifth spot in the rotation for Martinez, who now boasts a microscopic 0.84 ERA this spring. He's competing primarily with Nick Tepesch for the job.

Leonys Martin belted a two-run homer in Thursday's game versus the Rockies.

The longball came in the third inning off of Chad Betts and was Martin's second homer this spring. Recently anointed as the Rangers' leadoff hitter, Martin won't offer much from a power perspective but will give fantasy owners stolen bases and runs.

Ross Ohlendorf had to leave an appearance Thursday after aggravating his right groin injury.

He's been battling the ailment for over a week. Ohlendorf has struck out 11 over five scoreless frames this spring, which should be good enough to earn an Opening Day roster spot if the groin ailment isn't a major setback.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia hopes that Kole Calhoun (triceps) will be able to return to action on Friday.

Calhoun had to exit Thursday's contest after being hit in the right triceps with a pitch, but he was diagnosed only with a bruise and will be fine. The outfielder is batting .293 during Cactus League play.

MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez writes of Johnny Giavotella that the Angels' second base job is "pretty much his, for now."

Josh Rutledge entered camp as the presumed favorite for the gig, but Giavotella has outplayed him this spring by batting .343 to this point. The former Royals' prospect has always hit in the minors but has been dinged for his defense and was never given a real shot in Kansas City. He could have some AL-only league value.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Major League Baseball is expected to make a decision regarding Josh Hamilton's situation prior to Opening Day.

Heyman notes that "a suspension of some length" is expected following Hamilton's relapse, but "it isn't known what the resolution will be." The feeling is that it could potentially range from 25 games to a full season, although the MLBPA is arguably for only a 15-game ban. Hamilton is already slated to miss the beginning of the season while recording from surgery in early February to repair the AC joint in his right shoulder.

Kole Calhoun has been diagnosed with a bruised right triceps.

Calhoun suffered the injury when he was hit by a pitch during Thursday's game versus the Cubs. He initially remained in the game, suggesting his removal was merely precautionary. Until we hear otherwise, it's probably safe to assume this is just a day-to-day situation.
