Devon Travis got two at-bats and doubled in a run Friday against the Red Sox in his spring debut.
Travis is making his way back from knee surgery. If everything goes perfectly from here, he'll probably be in the Opening Day lineup, though perhaps not as an everyday player initially. If it's anything less than perfect, he could spend the first 7-10 days on the DL.
Troy Tulowitzki doubled and singled in his two at-bats Friday against the Red Sox.
Tulo was leading off again today, and it seems like manager John Gibbons might be thinking of putting him there to begin the regular season. Gibbons did use him there after the Jays first acquired him in July 2015, but he declared last spring that he had no intention of doing it again and he hit Tulo in the middle of the order all year long. Devon Travis is the ideal option for the Jays in the top spot, but he's just working his way back and the team might figure it'd be asking too much to put him there on Opening Day.
Bryce Brentz homered off Toronto's J.A. Happ to account for both Boston runs on Friday.
Brentz has three homers this spring, but he's batting just .156 in 45 at-bats. Although he's out of options, it seems awfully unlikely that anyone will claim him on waivers, meaning he's probably Pawtucket-bound one more time.
Charlie Morton allowed three hits over 4 1/3 innings in the Astros' 2-0 shutout of the Mets on Friday.
Morton struck out four in his latest strong outing. He's sporting a 1.05 ERA in 17 1/3 innings. There probably isn't any mixed-league potential here, but the Astros are probably going to be glad they signed him.
Noah Syndergaard limited the Astros to one run and four hits over six innings on Friday.
Syndergaard struck out five and walked none in his best showing so far this spring. Even though he's just now overcoming bronchitis, he has a 2.63 ERA in his four starts.
Derek Fisher went 2-for-4 with three more steals Friday, giving him 10 stolen bases this spring.
Fisher has been a fine basestealer in the minors, but nothing like this; he was 28-for-35 in 129 games last year and 31-for-38 in 123 games in 2015. He's a pretty solid hitter, too, and it's possible he could factor into the Astros' left field mix by season's end. He's also potential trade bait.
Lonnie Chisenhall exited Friday's game against the Cubs after colliding with the outfield wall.
Chisenhall appeared to be grabbing at his right shoulder as he walked off the field with a trainer and manager Terry Francona. The Indians should have an update on their right fielder shortly.
Jay Bruce went 0-for-3 on Friday, leaving him with a .200 average in 35 at-bats this spring.
Michael Conforto has 220 points of OPS on Bruce this spring (.911 to .693), but it doesn't figure to make any sort of difference; Bruce will be the Mets' regular right fielder and Conforto will likely head to Triple-A, even though he's the better player.
