Albert Almora exited Friday's game versus the Indians with tightness in the left side of his neck.

Almora tweaked his neck when he dove for a ball. He's being evaluated by the training staff before it's determined whether this could be more than a day-to-day situation. Almora is slated to receive the bulk of the at-bats in center field for the Cubs this season.

Chase Whitley pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings, striking out two, Friday against the Pirates.

Whitley pitched four scoreless innings last time out, but the short outing today makes it seem as though he was officially ruled out of the rotation mix. He could still make the Rays as a reliever. He has a 4.91 ERA this spring, but he's coming on strong now.
Mar 24 - 5:09 PM

Jon Gray left Friday's start against the Giants with an undisclosed injury.

Gray gave up seven consecutive hits and five runs to the Giants in the third inning before being pulled. For what it's worth, it didn't look to be anything arm-related based on how Gray was conversing with the trainer and Rockies manager Bud Black in the dugout. The club should have an update on their ace soon.

J.A. Happ struck out five while allowing two runs -- one earned -- over 5 1/3 innings Friday in defeating the Red Sox.

He walked none and allowed just three hits. Happ has a 1.59 ERA and an even more impressive 0.62 ERA in 11 1/3 innings.
Mar 24 - 4:56 PM

Drew Pomeranz yielded three runs over four innings against the Blue Jays in his start Friday.

Pomeranz, who left his last start with triceps tightness, was very pleased afterwards, especially with how things came together after the first two innings (all of the runs scored then). Assuming he still feels good these next couple of days, he'll be penciled in as Boston's fifth starter.
Mar 24 - 4:55 PM

Devon Travis got two at-bats and doubled in a run Friday against the Red Sox in his spring debut.

Travis is making his way back from knee surgery. If everything goes perfectly from here, he'll probably be in the Opening Day lineup, though perhaps not as an everyday player initially. If it's anything less than perfect, he could spend the first 7-10 days on the DL.
Mar 24 - 4:53 PM

Troy Tulowitzki doubled and singled in his two at-bats Friday against the Red Sox.

Tulo was leading off again today, and it seems like manager John Gibbons might be thinking of putting him there to begin the regular season. Gibbons did use him there after the Jays first acquired him in July 2015, but he declared last spring that he had no intention of doing it again and he hit Tulo in the middle of the order all year long. Devon Travis is the ideal option for the Jays in the top spot, but he's just working his way back and the team might figure it'd be asking too much to put him there on Opening Day.
Mar 24 - 4:51 PM

Bryce Brentz homered off Toronto's J.A. Happ to account for both Boston runs on Friday.

Brentz has three homers this spring, but he's batting just .156 in 45 at-bats. Although he's out of options, it seems awfully unlikely that anyone will claim him on waivers, meaning he's probably Pawtucket-bound one more time.
