Orioles released INF Chris Johnson.

Johnson smacked three homers with a .802 OPS this spring, but it wasn't enough to crack the Opening Day roster. The 32-year-old is a .252/.288/.348 hitter in the majors since 2014.
Mar 27 - 6:12 PM

Orioles released OF Michael Bourn.

Bourn fractured his right ring finger before Grapefruit League contests got underway and won't be game-ready until sometime in April, at least. He requested his release and is now free to sign elsewhere on what's sure to be a minor league contract. Bourn is nothing more than a bit player at this point in his career.

Sandy Leon hit two homers, the latter a grand slam, to lead the Red Sox to an 11-9 win over the Orioles on Monday.

Both Leon homers came in a nine-run fifth inning. He had been 6-for-26 with no extra-base hits this spring going into this one. One of 2016's biggest surprises, Leon seems likely to disappoint offensively this year, though he'll remain a quality defensive catcher for Boston.
Mar 27 - 5:33 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez gave up six runs -- four earned -- and nine hits in six innings Monday against the Orioles.

Rodriguez surrendered five extra-base hits in this one. He's looked quite strong for the most part this spring, but consistency remains a question mark here. He is all set for the rotation, at least until David Price comes back.
Mar 27 - 5:32 PM

Craig Kimbrel had a shaky inning Monday, giving up two runs to the Orioles.

Kimbrel's velocity wasn't up to par in this one, though the Red Sox indicated afterwards that nothing was wrong. Kimbrel has now given up five runs in six innings this spring. With Tyler Thornburg DL bound, the back of the Red Sox bullpen could be a weak point early on, even though the Red Sox have sacrificed way too much talent to build it up.
Mar 27 - 5:30 PM

Tyler Wilson pitched four innings of one-run ball Monday in his start against the Red Sox.

Wilson kept himself in the mix for a rotation spot today in lowering his spring ERA from 6.14 to 5.30. It still seems more likely that Jayson Aquino will be the choice there, though.
Mar 27 - 5:27 PM

Marco Hernandez went 2-for-2 with a double Monday, raising his spring average to .407.

Hernandez has an 1.189 OPS in 54 at-bats, so he's done everything he possibly can to win a bench spot. It's probably down to him and Steve Selsky to become Boston's 25th man. Hernandez's ability to play short and second would come in real handy, particularly since Brock Holt isn't particularly strong at those spots. Selsky could be a right-handed platoonmate for Mitch Moreland at first as well as a backup outfielder.
Mar 27 - 5:26 PM

Mark Trumbo had three hits, including a couple of doubles, Monday against the Red Sox.

It's a start. Trumbo had been hitting just .177 with one extra-base hit (a double) in 41 at-bats this spring.
