Colby Rasmus went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and an RBI single in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles.

Rasmus is working his way into the groove late, having just made his spring debut on Sunday. The slow start is due to the fact that he underwent surgery to repair his left hip labrum and his core muscle in October. On Wednesday, the veteran outfielder came through with an RBI single in the first inning and a two-run home run in the fifth. While Rasmus has popped double-digit home runs in each of the past five seasons, health has been a major issue for him throughout his career. He has played in more than 120 games just once over the last four years.

Chris Archer posted an up-and-down Grapefruit League start against the Orioles on Wednesday, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Archer did strike out six, but on the whole, this wasn't the sharpest of outings. He yielded runs in the second, fourth and fifth innings, the loudest of those coming in the form of a two-run home run by Chris Johnson in the fourth. This past season, the 28-year-old Archer posted a 4.02 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 233/67 K/BB ratio across 201 1/3 innings (33 starts). It was something of a down campaign for the right-hander -- at least outside of the strikeouts -- but he remains a rock solid fantasy option in both mixed- and AL-only formats.

Chris Lee surrendered two runs on five hits across two innings in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays.

Lee struck out one and walked two on the evening. The Rays uncoiled for both their runs on his line in the first inning, with RBI singles off the bats of Brad Miller and Colby Rasmus doing the damage. In five appearances this spring, the 24-year-old Lee boasts a 2.77 ERA. He will likely be shuttled to minor league camp relatively soon, but could see work with the Orioles during the season.

Alex Meyer didn’t have his best stuff Wednesday in the Angels’ Cactus League loss to the Rangers, allowing five hits, five runs (four earned) and three walks over 2 1/3 innings.

He recorded two fly outs, one groundout and four strikeouts. The Rangers went to work right away, pounding Meyer for three runs in the opening frame. Meyer limited the damage to one run in the second but was lifted after creating another mess in the third. Meyer’s spring ERA shot up from 4.70 to 7.20 in the wake of Wednesday’s collapse. The 6’9" right-hander had an outside chance at winning a rotation spot earlier this spring, but now it looks like he’s probably destined for Triple-A.

Allen Webster endured a rocky afternoon Wednesday in the Rangers' Cactus League win over the Angels, letting up three hits and three runs over three lackluster innings.

He finished with four walks and four strikeouts. Webster labored through a difficult first inning, allowing three walks and a pair of singles before finally retiring the side. He held the Angels scoreless over his last two frames, though his command of the strike zone remained spotty. A classic Quad-A player (too good for the minors, not good enough for the big leagues), Webster will probably spend the year bouncing between Triple-A and Texas.

Danny Espinosa notched two hits and drove in a pair of runs Wednesday in the Angels’ Cactus League loss to the Rangers.

It’s still a little weird seeing Espinosa in an Angels uniform after so many years in Washington, but we’re slowly getting used to it. Espinosa ripped a two-run single in the first before adding another hit in the sixth. Wednesday’s outburst boosted Espinosa’s spring average from .195 to .222. Espinosa crushed a career-high 24 homers last year but also hit just .209 with 174 strikeouts.
Mar 22 - 8:27 PM

Cody Martin was blasted for six runs on seven hits over 2 2/3 innings Wednesday in the Mariners’ Cactus League loss to the Angels.

He walked three and struck out one. Martin got blown up for four runs in the second inning and couldn’t make it through the third after giving up another run. His first inning wasn’t exactly smooth sailing either. Half the runs he allowed came on a three-run shot by Ben Revere, who has homered just six times in 748 major league appearances. Martin’s spring had been going well before Wednesday’s debacle (no earned runs over 9 2/3 innings). The 27-year-old is likely ticketed for Triple-A to begin the year.
Mar 22 - 8:24 PM

Ben Revere scored twice, stole a base and reached in all four of his plate appearances Wednesday in the Angels’ Cactus League win over the Mariners.

Revere provided two singles, a walk and (wait for it) a three-run homer in the second inning. You heard us right. Ben Revere, he of six career homers, hit a ball to Souvenir City. Revere has been impossibly hot this spring, hitting .421 with six RBI and four thefts. He’s expected to platoon in left field with Cameron Maybin this year.
