According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, Roy Halladay topped out at 89 mph in his Wednesday start.

Halladay, who averaged 92 mph with his fastball in 2011, surrendered five runs in just 2 2/3 innings Wednesday afternoon to a light-hitting Twins lineup. He was working on a few different arm slots, so there's no real reason for concern quite yet. But another disastrous spring outing would bring about some serious red flags. The 34-year-old right-hander allowed just one run across 21 2/3 innings last year in the Grapefruit League.

Jarrod Dyson remains out of game action due to soreness in his legs.

He's been dealing with fatigue in his legs for a week now, although the Mariners think he'll be ready to play by Sunday. It doesn't sound like a big deal but is obviously worth tracking given how much of Dyson's value is derived from his legs. For what it's worth, the speedster is 5-for-5 on stolen base attempts this spring.

Jose Quintana has been named the White Sox' Opening Day starter.

That's assuming he's not traded before then. Quintana was the obvious choice to take the ball in the opener, of course, following the team's offseason trade of Chris Sale. The left-hander boasts a 3.35 ERA over the last four seasons and has made at least 32 starts each of those years.

Khris Davis will be held out of game action until at least Sunday because of a minor quad injury.

It sounds like the Athletics are just being cautious with their slugger here. Davis is batting .250 this spring and has yet to homer after going deep 42 times in his first season in Oakland.

Sportsnet's Arash Madani reports that Marco Estrada is expected to be the Blue Jays' Opening Day starter.

He'll be followed by J.A. Happ, Marcus Stroman, Francisco Liriano and Aaron Sanchez. Estrada has earned the Opening Day assignment after putting up a 3.30 ERA across 63 appearances -- 57 starts -- for the Blue Jays over the last two seasons.

Billy Hamilton (Achilles) will return to game action this weekend.

Hamilton hasn't played since last weekend due to some minor Achilles soreness, although he said he would be playing if it were the regular season. Obviously his legs are the most important part of his game, so we can't take this lightly. However, it sounds like Hamilton should be fine.

Adrian Gonzalez (elbow) is back in the Dodgers' lineup Friday.

Gonzalez has dealt with an elbow issue on and off during camp, but he's feeling well enough to give it a go again. The first baseman has been limited to just 10 Cactus League plate appearances this spring, but he also got 12 at-bats during the World Baseball Classic.

Carlos Rodon was scratched from Friday's start and will undergo an MRI due to tightness in his left biceps.

Uh oh. The White Sox don't seem to think Rodon has any structural damage, but he's probably going to miss the first couple starts of the season, anyway. The left-hander was already being eased into things this spring as he was prepped for an increased workload in 2017, so he's not totally built up yet. Obviously, more will be known once the exam results are revealed.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny indicated Friday that Jhonny Peralta will be the team's starting third baseman and Jedd Gyroko will be a utility infielder.

It's been the expectation since the beginning of camp. It ultimately probably doesn't matter much which of the two is the "starter" at third base, as both Peralta and Gyorko are going to play a lot. Gyorko, who led the Cards with 30 homers last season, figures to handle second base versus lefties.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Friday that it's looking more and more likely that Collin McHugh (arm) will get a late start to the season.

McHugh has been battling through a "dead arm" phase and hasn't made any Grapefruit League appearances this spring. He pitched in a minor league game Wednesday and is set to throw in another one Monday, so the Astros would be able to backdate a disabled list stint. The right-hander should be ready to rejoin the rotation sometime in April.
Mar 24 - 11:21 AM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch announced Friday that Dallas Keuchel will be the team's Opening Day starter.

The only thing that would've prevented this is Keuchel showing up to camp with his shoulder still bothering him as it did last season. Instead, he's said he feels great and it's shown with a 1.50 ERA over three Grapefruit League outings. Keuchel should be in line for a bounce-back season if he can stay healthy.

LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that the Twins will meet with Jose Berrios on Friday and there's a "good chance" they'll tell him he won't make the Opening Day roster.

It sounds like Berrios playing for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic hurt his chances of cracking the rotation, as he didn't pitch much and still needs to build his endurance up. It's a discouraging development for a guy who has disappointed in his big league chances so far but who still holds plenty of upside. Berrios should get his opportunity in the rotation before long, though. Tyler Duffey, Justin Haley, Adalberto Mejia and Nick Tepesch look to be the last men standing in the competition for the final spot in the Twins' rotation. Mejia (1.88 ERA, 14/4 K/BB ratio over 14 1/3 innings) has had easily the best camp of the group.
