C.J. Cron went 2-for-2 with a double and a run scored as the Angels topped the Brewers 3-2 on Thursday.

Cron led off the third inning with a double and later scored. The 25-year-old is coming off of minor wrist surgery. Cron figures to serve in the DH role along with Matt Joyce throughout the year.
Mar 5 - 7:22 PM

Mike Trout beat out a single and knocked in a run in one of his three at-bats Thursday versus the Brewers.

Trout beat out a single to shortstop, plating a run in the process. Trout finally won an MVP award last season and has to be considered the favorite to take home the hardware following this season. He led the league in runs scored with 115 and in RBI with 111 while hitting 36 home runs and stealing 16 bases.
Mar 5 - 7:17 PM

Orioles released RHP Suk-min Yoon.

The O's will reportedly recover $4.3 million out of the $5.75 million they gave Yoon last February. Yoon will return to his native Korea, where he'll receive $8.1 million on a four-year deal with the KIA Tigers. He never threw a pitch for the O's.
Mar 5 - 7:15 PM

Hector Santiago pitched a pair of scoreless innings on Thursday against the Brewers.

Santiago allowed a single and a walk while striking out one in the effort. The lefty was reasonably productive across 24 starts and six relief appearances, finishing with a 3.75 ERA and a 108/53 K/BB ratio last season. Santiago is expected to pitch out of the Angels' rotation to start the season.
Mar 5 - 7:11 PM

Hunter Pence will be sidelined 6-8 weeks after an X-ray confirmed he has a non-displaced fracture in his left forearm.

Pence suffered the break when he was hit by a pitch just above his wrist during a Cactus League game Thursday. With a 6-8 week timetable, you would have to figure he's likely to be sidelined for the entire month of April. Pence has played in a major league-leading 383 consecutive games, as he's yet to miss a game since joining the Giants. Obviously that streak will come to an end. Gregor Blanco should be in line to see the bulk of the at-bats during Pence's absence.
Mar 5 - 7:07 PM

Kyle Lohse allowed a run in 2 2/3 innings in Thursday's Cactus League start against the Angels.

Lohse allowed a lead-off double to C.J. Cron to lead off the third, then got two consecutive outs before being pulled. Ariel Pena inherited Lohse's runner and allowed him to score. Overall, Lohse allowed just the one hit while striking out three. The right-hander is now 36 years old but hasn't shown any signs of slowing down yet.
Mar 5 - 7:06 PM

Bruce Chen pitched two perfect innings in the Indians' 9-3 win against the Reds on Thursday.

Chen, vying for a big league role with the Indians, whiffed three batters in the process. The 37-year-old left-hander posted a 7.45 ERA in 48 1/3 innings for the Royals last year before he was released. It isn't very likely he makes the Opening Day roster, but a productive spring could lead to something later in the season.
Mar 5 - 6:59 PM

Aroldis Chapman recorded all three outs on strikeouts Thursday against the Indians.

Chapman issued a leadoff walk to Jerry Sands before fanning Michael Martinez, Jose Ramirez, and Yan Gomes in succession. Just another day of work for the left-hander, who fanned 106 batters in 54 innings last season. He also finished with a 2.00 ERA and 36 saves. Few relievers are expected to be better than Chapman going into the 2015 season.
