Jeremy Guthrie held the Mariners scoreless over 5 2/3 innings in Thursday's Cactus League start.

Guthrie outdueled Felix Hernandez, holding the Mariners to just two hits while walking none and striking out two on the afternoon. It was only Guthrie's second start of the spring, but he's expected to be ready to go when the regular season begins.

Felix Hernandez tossed six effective innings, holding the Royals to one run on Thursday.

It was the first time this spring Hernandez had completed even the third inning, let alone six frames. No matter, though, as the Mariners have been carefully managing the right-hander's workload. Hernandez, soon to be 29 years old, has logged 200-plus innings in each of the last seven seasons.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News believes that Nick Martinez leads the competition for the Rangers' No. 5 starter job.

He cautions that "nothing is decided" but thinks that Martinez is the "front runner." Martinez's main competitors for the gig are Nick Tepesch, Anthony Ranaudo and Lisalverto Bonilla. The 24-year-old made 24 starts for Texas last season, posting a 4.55 ERA with just 77 strikeouts over 140 1/3 innings overall.

Derek Holland (shoulder) is expected to start the Rangers' home opener on April 10 versus the Astros.

Holland is over the minor bout of shoulder soreness he dealt with earlier in camp, but the Rangers will play it safe with him and hold him back until the fifth game of the season. "There are two opening days," manager Jeff Banister said. Yovani Gallardo will get the ball on April 6.

Erik Johnson was diagnosed with a moderate abdominal strain.

The initial report stated that Johnson suffered an oblique strain. Either way, he's not expected to be ready for the season and will begin the year in the minors when he does.

Ross Detwiler has secured the fourth spot in the Rangers' starting rotation.

Meanwhile, the fifth spot remains up for grabs. Detwiler, who was acquired from the Nationals over the winter, owns a a 3.55 ERA in 364 2/3 innings since the beginning of the 2011 season and should have some relevance in AL-only leagues.

Yovani Gallardo will start Opening Day against the Athletics on April 6.

He'll square off against Oakland's Sonny Gray. Yu Darvish would have gotten the assignment if he was healthy, but Gallardo gets the call after coming over from the Brewers over the winter. The veteran right-hander posted a 3.51 ERA across 32 starts last season.

Giancarlo Stanton delivered a homer and a double off Adam Wainwright as the Marlins beat the Cardinals 5-3 on Sunday.

Some were nervous about how Stanton would fare after having his season ended by a beanball last September, but he isn't showing any fear at the plate. He's currently batting .294 with two homers and four doubles in 34 at-bats.
