Red Sox manager John Farrell said that the team would like to see Drew Pomeranz stretched to around 90 pitches before locking him into the rotation.

Pomeranz threw 76 pitches in a Grapefruit League game against the Twins on Wednesday. He will make a final minor league tune-up start on Monday, with the goal being to stretch him out for rotational work. Farrell said that the Sox will not give a "rubber stamp" to Pomeranz as fifth starter until they feel confident that he will be able to give them starting innings.

Gerrit Cole surrendered three solo homers over three innings Wednesday against the Phillies.

Wind was a factor on two of the homers (Aaron Altherr's, on the other hand, was crushed), so it wasn't all too bad of a day for Cole. He walked one and struck out three before being lifted. Even though he's healthy, he ended up making just three official starts this spring, allowing four runs in 10 innings.

Trevor Williams threw four scoreless innings in relief Wednesday against the Phillies.

With Drew Hutchison and Steven Brault sent out, the fifth spot in Pittsburgh's rotation is between Williams and Tyler Glasnow. The team would have room for both if Williams were stashed in the pen, so that might be how they open the year. Williams isn't a big upside guy, but he has been impressive this spring, posting a 2.04 ERA and an 18/2 K/BB ratio in 17 2/3 innings.

Kennys Vargas (foot) went 0-for-3 in minor league action on Wednesday.

After taking his hacks, Vargas indicated that there had been no increase of swelling in his injured left foot and that he felt good. The 26-year-old initially suffered the injury after fouling a ball off his hoof on March 24. His availability for Opening Day has not yet been determined, but that should clarify relatively soon.
Mar 29 - 4:24 PM

Josh Bell went 0-for-4 on Wednesday, dropping his spring average to .103.

There hasn't been anything to suggest the Pirates will consider sending down Bell for the first few weeks, but they do have that option with John Jaso and Jose Osuna having great springs. We think Bell is the Pirates' best option at first base, but since he's coming off knee surgery and he hasn't gotten it going yet, an April stint in Triple-A wouldn't be the worst thing.

Aason Judge went 2-for-3 with an RBI in the Yankees' 3-1 win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

While he hasn't matched Greg Bird bomb for bomb, Judge has certainly done what he needed to do this spring to solidify a starting job that seemed to be his to lose. Still, the Yankees have hinted that they might send him to the minors anyway. If so, they'd be bypassing him in favor of someone in Aaron Hicks who was terrible last year and who hasn't quite matched him in the OPS department this spring (.975 to .889).
Mar 29 - 4:18 PM

Twins manager Paul Molitor expressed confidence that Robbie Grossman (groin) will be ready for Opening Day.

Grossman has been working his way back from a groin injury suffered in mid-March. He went through a full workout on Monday and will serve as designated hitter in Grapefruit League action on Thursday. Unless word surfaces to the contrary, he should be available when the Twins take on the Royals in their regular-season opener on Monday.
Mar 29 - 4:17 PM

Jordan Montgomery held the Blue Jays to one run in five innings on Wednesday.

Montgomery did nothing to hurt his case for a rotation spot today. The Yankees will name a fourth starter within the next day or two. They don't intend to pick a No. 5 until they need one in mid-April. Montgomery could get either spot, and if he does, he'll be worth trying in AL-only leagues.
