Mike Leake scattered seven hits over six innings in the Cardinals' 3-0 shutout of the Marlins on Sunday.

Leake lowered his spring ERA to 3.81. He was terrific last spring before his disappointing season, finishing with a 2.25 ERA and a 24/2 K/BB ratio in 20 innings during Grapefruit League action. This year, he has a 14/6 K/BB ratio in 26 innings. He looks like a fringe guy in mixed leagues right now.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Jesus Sucre is likely to make the Rays' Opening Day roster.

He and new addition Derek Norris will form the Rays' catching duo until Wilson Ramos (knee) is ready. Curt Casali or Luke Maile will be the odd men out, with Casali possibly being trade bait. Sucre is a defense-first catcher who probably won't play a ton, so he can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

Matt Bowman pitched two scoreless innings Sunday to maintain his flawless spring ERA.

Bowman has allowed just an unearned run over nine innings. He has a 7/0 K/BB ratio. The Cardinals carried him throughout last season after taking him from the Mets in the Rule 5 draft. They're able to send him back to the minors now, but they have absolutely no plans to do so.

Dexter Fowler went 2-for-3 and hit his first homer of the spring Sunday against the Marlins.

Fowler is off to a fine start with his new team, hitting .351 with a 1.063 OPS this spring. He's expected to be a fixture in the leadoff spot ahead of Aledmys Diaz and Matt Carpenter in the Cardinals' order.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times thinks the Rays will attempt to trade Curt Casali.

They could also consider dealing Luke Maile following the signing of Derek Norris, but it appears Casali is more likely to be dealt. Jesus Sucre is expected to open the season along with Norris as the team's two catchers until Wilson Ramos (knee) is ready. Casali has hit 18 homers over 369 plate appearances over the last two seasons but has batted just .202/.282/.416 overall.

Ichiro Suzuki went 2-for-3 on Sunday and is 9-for-16 over his last five games.

Ichiro had been 3-for-22 this spring before his recent surge. He'll open up as the Marlins' fourth outfielder again. Ideally, he won't need to play as often as he did last year.

Corey Seager (oblique) could be held out of the exhibition Freeway Series with the Angels this weekend in order to get more at-bats in minor league games.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was quick to point out that it would have nothing to do with Seager's health but it simply a way for him to get more at-bats in order to knock the rust off. "He just needs to get his timing," Roberts said. Seager has been limited to just five Cactus League at-bats due to an oblique injury. The good news is that his oblique ailment seems like a non-issue at this point. Seager is fully expected to be ready on Opening Day.

Kolten Wong said Sunday that he would "100 percent" rather be traded than be platooned at second base.

It was one of a host of scathing comments from Wong in the wake of Cardinals manager Mike Matheny saying Saturday that the club would consider a platoon at second base. "I honestly don't give a (censored)," Wong said when asked about the team mulling over a platoon. Wong added that he doesn't want to be "wasting my time" with the Cards if they don't have faith in him. They're words Wong probably shouldn't have aired in public, but you can understand his frustration after the club essentially committed to him as the regular second baseman this winter. That said, Wong could make it all a moot point if he simply played better. He sports an underwhelming career .248/.309/.370 batting line and entered Sunday hitting just .182/.265/.250 this spring.
