Tyler Collins went 1-for-3 and drilled a three-run bomb in a loss to the Pirates on Saturday.

This was his second game back in action after missing time with a strained lat muscle that has bothered him throughout camp. He is batting just .220 with two homers in 41 at-bats. Collins has a very shaky hold on the starting centerfield job in Detroit. The 26-year-old has seen limited major league action over the last three seasons, holding a career line of .253/.309/.401 with nine home runs and 44 RBI in 134 games.

Taylor Motter went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's Cactus League contest against the Rangers.

Motter's homer off Eddie Gamboa in the sixth inning was the second he has hit since the start of spring action. In an even 50 at-bats, he is hitting .280. Motter saw 93 plate appearances with the Rays in 2016, but struggled in that space, slashing just .188/.290/.300.
Mar 25 - 6:51 PM

Ryan Rua went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Mariners.

Rua burned Dillon Overton for the solo shot with two outs in the first inning. The dinger was his third of the spring. He will likely land on the Rangers' Opening Day bench. Over the course of 99 games during the 2016 campaign, he posted a .268/.331/.400 triple-slash, eight home runs and nine steals. He offers tons of position versatility.

Jason Kipnis (shoulder) took swings in the batting cage on Saturday.

He also did some light throwing. Despite the progress he's made, Kipnis is fully expected to begin the year on the disabled list and could miss an additional 3-4 weeks after that. With Kipnis on the shelf, Jose Ramirez will handle second base for the Tribe.

Dillon Overton surrendered a solo home run to Ryan Rua in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Rangers.

Overton yakked up Rua's solo home run with two outs in the first inning, but settled in from that point on. He ended up pitching six innings, striking out three and scattering four hits over the course of his afternoon. The Mariners traded for the 25-year-old southpaw at the end of January. Given his minor league track record, Overton has deep sleeper appeal for AL-only formats, though opening the season in the majors is not a given.
Mar 25 - 6:43 PM

Anibal Sanchez tossed six hitless, scoreless frames while striking out six batters but the Tigers still lost to the Pirates on Saturday.

He walked one batter and saw an error made behind him but was otherwise perfect. Sanchez was shelled in each of his first three games of the spring before making some mechanical adjustments. In three games since then he has been unscored upon. On March 9th his ERA was 17.47 and now it is down to 5.03 in 19 2/3 innings. He is battling Matt Boyd for the last rotation slot on the Tigers' staff. Sanchez turned in a rough 5.87 ERA with 135 strikeouts in 153 1/3 innings a year ago.
Mar 25 - 6:42 PM

Nick Martinez pitched decently in Saturday's Cactus League game against the Mariners, surrendering two runs (one earned) on four hits over four innings.

Martinez coughed up a two-run double to Ben Gamel in the fourth inning, but was otherwise able to keep the Mariners at bay. He struck out six and walked one in the contest. While Saturday's outing was respectable enough, the 26-year-old right-hander has largely struggled this spring and looks to be on the outside of the Opening Day rotation at this juncture.
Mar 25 - 6:39 PM

Austin Meadows drilled a pinch-hit solo home run in a win over the Tigers on Saturday.

He was batting for Andrew McCutchen in the eighth inning when he took southpaw Kyle Ryan deep to provide the winning run. Meadows is batting .308 with two homers in 39 chances this spring. The 21-year-old top prospect is knocking on the door of the major leagues but it will likely take an injury or a trade involving one of the Pirates' stellar outfielders before he gets an opportunity.
