Jeremy Hellickson went 6 1/3 innings and allowed one run Friday against the Yankees.

This will go down as Hellickson's longest start of the spring, as the Phillies will back off him a bit next week in advance of his Opening Day start. He lowered his spring ERA from 7.50 to 5.92.

Jon Gray exited his start against the Giants on Friday with left foot soreness.

The Rockies' Root Sports broadcast referred to the injury as "very, very mild," so it looks like the club dodged a bullet here. They were certainly due a break when it comes to injuries. Gray should probably be OK to make his next spring start.

Michael Wacha pitched five innings of shutout ball Friday as the Cardinals beat the Nationals 3-1.

Wacha allowed two hits, walked one and struck out three in improving to 3-0 this spring. He has a 2.05 ERA in 22 innings. We weren't convinced a few weeks ago, but he looks like a fine late-round pick in mixed leagues now.

Jeremy Guthrie pitched 4 1/3 hitless innings Fridya in a start against the Cardinals.

Guthrie was brought to camp to compete for a job as a reliever, and he hadn't pitched more than two innings in any of his previous seven appearances before suddenly getting 13 outs today. He's done a nice job to date, with a 2.45 ERA and a 12/5 K/BB ratio in 14 2/3 innings. There's still no real reason for the Nationals to carry him, but maybe someone else will be interested.

Koda Glover gave up three runs in 1 2/3 innings Friday against the Cardinals.

Glover had been working the ninth exclusively of late, but he was brought in for the sixth today. He gave up two runs in his first inning and then was brought back out for the second to give up one more run. Perhaps Dusty Baker is souring on the idea of using him as a closer. The front office would surely prefer Baker stuck with the original plan there, which was Shawn Kelley.
Mar 24 - 5:33 PM

Diamondbacks returned Rule 5 pick RHP Tyler Jones to the Yankees.

Jones held a 4.05 ERA with eight strikeouts over 6 2/3 Cactus League innings. He'll now go back into the Yankees' farm system.
Mar 24 - 5:32 PM

Matt Wieters went hitless Friday and is off to a 2-for-20 start with the Nationals.

Wieters is in a new league and learning a new pitching staff, making hitting the lower priority at the moment. The bat may come along later, but it'd be no surprise if a slow start is in store.
Mar 24 - 5:31 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall was pulled from Friday's game against the Cubs with a right shoulder injury.

Chisenhall was hurt when he collided with the outfield wall while trying to chase down a Munenori Kawasaki triple. The Indians are listing him as day-to-day right now, but that might not necessarily mean much until he's evaluated further. They should have more to say after the game is over.
