Matt Chapman went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Dodgers.

Chapman whacked a three-run home run off Rich Hill in the first inning. That bomb was his second of the spring. The 23-year-old third baseman has shown big-time power in the minors, swatting 36 homers and driving in 96 runs across 514 at-bats split between Double- and Triple-A in 2016. Trevor Plouffe is already locked in at third for the A's, meaning that Chapman can probably expected to shifted down to the minors in the coming days. A midseason call-up is certainly in play, here.

Trevor Plouffe was pulled from Saturday's Cactus League game against the Reds after tweaking his abductor muscle.

In layman's terms, he's dealing with a hip injury. Plouffe went 2-for-2 with a single and a triple before exiting in the sixth inning. Jordan Tarsovich played the rest of the game at third base. Until the A's pass along an update, we'll consider Plouffe day-to-day.

Rich Hill allowed four runs on four hits over 3 2/3 innings in Saturday's Cactus League game against the A's.

Control was an issue for Hill in this one. He walked four on the afternoon. While he has struggled to an 8.03 ERA in five starts during spring action, this should not be a major concern for interested fantasy parties. Hill put up a 2.12 ERA in 20 starts between the A's and Dodgers during the 2016 season. Just about the only downside to the last campaign was that a pesky blister kept him out of action for extended stretches.

Andre Ethier (back) won't resume baseball activities until the first week of April.

The decision was made after Ethier met with a back specialist on Saturday. Ethier will obviously open the year on the disabled list but manager Dave Roberts said he doesn't anticipate the injury being a "6-8 week thing." The injury-prone Ethier was limited to just 16 games last season and is now facing another extended absence.

Jesse Hahn had nothing in Saturday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers, surrendering seven runs (five earned) on eight hits over 3 1/3 innings.

Ouch, just ouch. This makes two consecutive starts in which Hahn has surrendered seven runs. Five of those seven runs on Saturday touched home in a nightmare fourth inning which saw Hahn cough up a grand slam to Andrew Toles and a subsequent solo home run to Justin Turner. In 15 1/3 frames (five appearances) this spring, he is the owner of a dreadful 8.80 ERA.

Brewers released OF Malik Collymore.

2B Chris McFarland, RHP David Lucroy, LHP Steve Peterson, RHP Santos Saldivar and LHP Clint Terry were also released on Saturday. Collymore spent a year and a half in the Brewers' farm system after being acquired from St. Louis at the 2015 trade deadline. He spent all of last season with High-A Brevard County, hitting just .167 with 84 strikeouts over 192 at-bats.

Mark Reynolds went 2-for-2 with a two-run double in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Cubs.

Reynolds came through with a two-run double off Wade Davis in the fifth inning. That hit helped to spark a four-run frame for the Rockies. The veteran first baseman found a home with Colorado via a minor league contract at the beginning of February. As Ian Desmond is not expected to return from his hand injury until some time in April, Reynolds could see extended at-bats during the opening weeks of the 2017 season.
Mar 25 - 7:55 PM

Jason Heyward went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Rockies.

Heyward rocked German Marquez for a two-run home run with one out in the sixth inning. It was his second dinger of the spring. Heyward has adjusted his swing in the hopes of generating more consistency during the coming season, but until he offers proof of concept -- he has largely struggled in Cactus League play -- he will remain nothing more than a filler outfield option for fantasy purposes.
