Jose Abreu singled three times in as many at-bats as the White Sox fell 9-6 to the Dodgers on Thursday.

Abreu hit his first spring home run on Tuesday, which might have given one the impression he was having a slow spring. That is certainly not the case, as Thursday's effort brings his Cactus League average up to .488 (21-for-43). The lack of power -- two doubles, one triple, one homer -- shouldn't be concerning unless it persists into May.

Clayton Kershaw yielded just one run over six innings in Thursday's start versus the White Sox.

The White Sox scored early on Kershaw thanks to an Adam LaRoche RBI double, but the lefty was able to settle down from there. Overall, he gave up four hits and a walk while striking out eight. His spring results have been about what you'd expect: a 1.86 ERA over 19 1/3 innings with a 20/5 K/BB ratio. Kershaw will attempt to win his third consecutive Cy Young award with a strong 2015 season.

Jimmy Rollins had a big game against the White Sox on Thursday, batting 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, and 4 RBI.

Rollins knocked in his first run with a second-inning ground out, doubled in a run in the fourth, then hit a two-run home run off of Daniel Webb in the sixth. The veteran shortstop has shown good power this spring, now with five doubles, a pair of doubles, and one home run.
Mar 26 - 7:54 PM

Yasiel Puig homered in his third consecutive game, finishing 1-for-4 on Thursday facing the White Sox.

Puig now has five homers on the spring along with a .263 average (10-for-38) and 12 RBI. The Cuban superstar had also homered on Sunday against the Indians and Wednesday against the Padres, now giving him three in as many games. Puig looks like he's ready to begin the regular season.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Thursday that he could shorten Kevin Gausman's appearances in the final two weeks of camp to prepare him to possibly be used as a reliever.

Gausman threw one inning in Thursday's game and it appears he may continue to be used in short spurts rather than be stretched out more. "Until everything shakes out, I want him to be ready to do both things," Showalter said of Gausman. It's really disappointing news, as this is the first we've heard of the possibility of Gausman potentially not being a part of the rotation. He's out-pitched Ubaldo Jimenez this spring, but it sounds like the latter might beat him out for a rotation spot, anyway. Gausman is a potential breakout fantasy performer if he's given a starting job, so keep close tabs on this one.
Mar 26 - 7:50 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Thursday's 3-3 Cactus League tie with the Padres.

Goldschmidt hasn't registered a hit since March 20, a span of four hitless games. The first baseman missed a large chunk of last season with a fractured hand, but still should be held in extremely high regard as he was in 2013, when he led the league in home runs, RBI, slugging percentage, and OPS.
Mar 26 - 7:48 PM

Yonder Alonso singled three times and walked in four plate appearances on Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

Alonso brought his Cactus League average up to .300 (12-for-40) with the effort, but he's only shown a modicum of power this spring with three doubles and a home run. Considering his position, Alonso's bat leaves much to be desired as he's yet to cross the 10-homer threshold over parts of five major league seasons.

Chad Gaudin will be examined after feeling tingling in his fingers due to the ongoing nerve issues in his neck.

Gaudin had surgery a couple years ago but has never been able to totally shake the nerve problems, as this is the second time in the last week he's had issues. He's been shut down and will be sent for an exam before the next course of action is determined.
