Games of March 7
Jonathan Schoop, Orioles: 1-1, HR, RBI
Kolten Wong, Cardinals: 3-4, 2B, 2 RBI
Oscar Taveras, Cardinals: 1-3, 2B. Tavares' first spring training game. He followed with right hamstring tightness that will cause him to miss a couple games.
Sean Gilmartin, Twins: 2 IP, 2 H, 3 K
Marcus Stroman, Blue Jays: 3 IP, 4 H, 3 R/ER, BB, K
Rafael Montero, Mets: 2 IP, H, R, K
Steven Matz, Mets: 1 IP, H, BB, 3 K. Matz has excellent stuff from the left side. If he can stay healthy, he will be a force in the upper levels.
Games of March 8
Matt Lipka, Braves: 2-4. Lipka has generated a little buzz this spring with his athleticism, but the bat needs to play up to advance.
Byron Buxton, Twins: 1-5, HR, 2 RBI. Buxton hit a home run and was greeted afterward by being assigned to minor league camp. He went 3 for 19 in major league camp.
Mason Williams, Yankees: 1-1, 2B, 2 RBI, BB
Billy Hamilton, Reds: 0-2, BB, 2 SB (6). He's fast.
Andrew Susac, Giants: 1-3, 2B, 2 RBI
Christian Vazquez, Red Sox: 1-2, HR, 2 RBI
Joc Pederson, Dodgers: 2-3, 2B, HR, 2 RBI
Henry Owens, Red Sox: 2.1 IP, 5 H, 3 R/ER, 2 BB, K
Eduardo Rodriguez, Orioles: 2 IP, 3 H, 2 R/ER, BB, 4 K
Tim Berry, Orioles: 2 IP, 2 K
Andrew Heaney, Marlins: 2.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R/ER, K
Noah Syndergaard, Mets: 3 IP, 2 H, 2 R/ER, 3 BB, 3 K
A.J. Cole, Nationals: 2.2 IP, 2 H, 3 K
Archie Bradley, Diamondbacks: 3.1 IP, 2 H, 2 BB, 3 K
Jonathan Gray, Rockies: 2 IP, 2 H, R/ER, 2 K
Kevin Gausman, Orioles: 3 IP, H, 3 K
Brandon Workman, Red Sox: 3.1 IP, 4 H, 2 R/ER, 2 BB, 2 K
Games of March 9
Kevin Plawecki, Mets: 1-1, 2B, 2 RBI
Kyle Parker, Rockies: 2-2, 2 2B, 5 RBI
Matt Purke, Nationals: 2 IP, H
Carlos Perez, Braves: 1 IP, BB, K. If Perez can work with his long arm action and shaky command, he's a major-league quality LOOGY. He worked 91-93 with a sweeping 80 mph slider in this outing.
Erik Johnson, White Sox: 4 IP, 4 H, R/ER, BB, 5 K
Kyle Crick, Giants: 0.2 IP, H, 5 R/ER, 4 BB, K. Crick was said to be overthrowing and couldn't find the zone in the Giants futures game. The stuff is there, but he has to harness it.
