Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Monday that Archie Bradley is in the mix for the team's final bullpen spot.

It's hard to believe it would happen. The Diamondbacks are poised for a rebuilding year and Bradley needs to be in a rotation somewhere as he tries to revive his stock a bit after a disappointing, injury-shortened 2014. We'd be very surprised if he's not in the Triple-A rotation to start 2015, but he's a good bet to debut at some point this season.

Kyle Hendricks was great until the sixth inning, allowing five runs in 5 1/3 innings in Monday's start against the Giants.

Hendricks had blanked the Giants through five until they hung a five-spot in the sixth inning. After leading off the frame with a strikeout, Hendricks allowed a solo home run to Joe Panik followed by a single, a walk, another single, and a double before departing. All told, he gave up seven hits and a walk while striking out five. Last season, Hendricks succeeded despite a mediocre ability to miss bats, finishing with a 2.46 ERA and a 47/15 K/BB ratio in 80 1/3 innings.

Alex Speier of the Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox are not expected to trade Allen Craig before the start of the season.

Speier says that "at least three teams" have inquired on Craig this spring, but those clubs "have treated him as a distressed asset" and the Red Sox aren't interested in selling low. The report adds that "evaluators have seen a different hitter this spring" after his struggles last year and the Red Sox have "been impressed with how Craig has handled a potentially challenging situation." Craig doesn't look to be in line for much playing time in 2015, but he could potentially take over at first base in 2016 if Mike Napoli departs as a free agent.

Jimmy Rollins went 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored as the Dodgers topped the Diamondbacks 4-2 on Monday.

Rollins maintains his .333 Cactus League average (18-for-54) with the effort. GHe now has seven doubles, two triples, and a home run this spring, showcasing his offensive potential for his new team. The 36-year-old can still provide plenty of value with his speed and power.

Mike Adams allowed two more runs in an inning of work facing the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Adams has allowed runs in three of his five appearances so far this spring. The Dodgers could use bullpen help, but the 36-year-old right-hander is coming off of a rotator cuff injury. The Dodgers have to tell him by noon EST on Tuesday if he's made the active roster, if he's been cut, or if he'll begin the season in the minors, per SB Nation's Eric Stephen.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch indicated Monday that Josh Fields (groin) is likely to begin the season on the disabled list.

Fields hasn't thrown off a mound in a week due to a groin malady and it's not clear when he'll be cleared to throw off the bump. "It's getting tough," Hinch said. "At some point, we're going to run out of time. Now that we're a week away from Opening Day and [Fields] hasn't been on the mound for a long time, it's getting dangerously close. At the same time, we have to make sure that there are no setbacks and no length into the season that he wouldn't be available."

Yoan Lopez yielded three runs in four innings in Monday's start against the Dodgers.

The Dodgers pounced on Lopez early, scoring twice in the first inning. Overall, Lopez allowed four hits and walked two while striking out three. The Cuban right-hander, signed in January, has mostly struggled this spring and will open up the season in the minor leagues. Lopez has given up 12 runs in 13 2/3 innings this spring.
Mar 30 - 7:03 PM

Brett Anderson fired six scoreless innings in Monday's Cactus League start against the Diamondbacks.

The lefty only gave up four hits and a walk while fanning two on the afternoon. Anderson has racked up only 12 2/3 innings over four spring starts, but has allowed exactly zero runs in three of them. The Dodgers are happy to see the oft-injured veteran throwing well, as they are suffering from thin starting depth.
