Michael Wacha finished the spring 4-0 after allowing two runs over four innings in the Cardinals' 6-2 victory against the Nationals on Wednesday.

Wacha ends up with a 2.43 ERA and a 22/6 K/BB ratio in 26 innings. We were rather skeptical a month ago, but he looks like a legitimate mixed-league starter now.

According to J.J. Bailey of KMOV, tests indicate that Randal Grichuk didn't suffer a break in his right hand.

Grichuk was hit in the right hand by a pitch on Wednesday, but the Cardinals don't sound overly concerned. He didn't receive an X-ray, but he'll be sent for one if his hand remains an issue on Thursday.

Stephen Strasburg allowed three runs -- two earned -- over four innings Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Working exclusively out of the stretch, Strasburg finishes the spring with a 6.61 ERA. The rest of his numbers were better; he struck out 14, walked three and allowed one homer in 16 1/3 innings. We're not as high on him as we've been some previous seasons, but he's at least a No. 2 starter in mixed leagues.

Koda Glover was pulled after retiring one of the three hitters he faced in the fifth inning Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Glover's appearances in the middle of games haven't gone as well as his ninth-inning outings. Today, he walked the first batter he faced, gave up a single and then was removed after a groundout. He was charged with a run after Sammy Solis allowed a sac fly. That Dusty Baker still hasn't announced Glover as his closer would seem to suggest that Shawn Kelley's chances are improving. Our assumption is that Glover is Baker's pick, but that the front office prefers Kelley.

Yadier Molina told Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com on Wednesday that "the clock is still running" when asked if there has been progress in extension talks with the Cardinals.

Molina doesn't want to talk about an extension after Opening Day, but it sounds like significant progress has been made. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported Tuesday that if completed, Molina is expected to receive a three-year extension in the range of $45-55 million. He could probably get more money on the open market (he has a $15 million mutual option for 2018), but Molina doesn't want to uproot his family at this stage of his career. Look for something to get done here.
Mar 29 - 3:48 PM

Ryan Zimmerman hit his second spring home run Wednesday off the Cardinals' Michael Wacha.

After an 0-for-17 start, Zimmerman has gone 16-for-35 with six extra-base hits and a couple of steals since March 15. Adam Lind, meanwhile, has done nothing this spring, so Zimmerman shouldn't have to worry about losing any playing time at the beginning of the year. He'll open the season batting sixth or seventh, depending on how Dusty Baker utilizes Adam Eaton.
Mar 29 - 3:48 PM

Jayson Stark of ESPN.com reports that the Tigers have placed outfielder Steven Moya on outright waivers.

Moya looked like an obvious option to fill in for J.D. Martinez (foot), but he batted just .192 (10-for-52) with 11 strikeouts this spring. There's a chance he could draw some interest on waivers, but the Tigers are hoping to keep him around at Triple-A. Mikie Mahtook and Tyler Collins now figure to split time in right field until Martinez is ready while JaCoby Jones should be in line to play center.
Mar 29 - 3:22 PM

Twins signed RHP Paul Clemens to a minor league contract.

Clemens was released by the Padres last week and quickly found a new opportunity. The 29-year-old owns a 4.89 ERA across 66 appearances -- 19 starts -- in the majors and figures to get a shot with the Twins at some point.
