Spring Training Boxscores: Fantasy Notes

  • Lastings Milledge went 2-2 this afternoon and is now hitting .406 this Spring.  He also stole base #5.  Get him while you can.
  • Adam Jones hit 6th today.  Given his inexperience, I can see him beginning the season here behind Kevin Millar and Aubrey Huff.  Those two players say it all about where I think he will finish in the order.
  • Carlos Gomez was 0-3 and is now hitting .167 this Spring.  Denard Span replaced him and went 1-1 with his third SB.  He is batting .267,
  • Jorge Cantu started at 1B this afternoon.  Unfortunately, the incumbent hits from the left side, but multi-postion flexibility is never a bad thing.
  • Ryan Doumit hit 5th today while starting at catcher.  I sense he is going to be a nice sleeper at a scarce position.  Doumit for a $1 as a second catcher isn't so bad.
  • Johan Santana pitched four shutout innings with 4 Ks against the Pawtucket Red Sox.  Sorry, that was the Red Sox split squad team.
  • Randy Johnson made his Spring 2008 debut.  So did the Angels' John Lackey.  Neither effort was noteworthy beyond that.
  • Mariners' rookie Wladimir Balentien went 4-5 with a SB.  I expect him to be a quality free agent pick-up this season in very deep leagues.
  • The Yankees' AAA CF Brett Gardner drew a walk against the Reds' Homer Bailey.  
Update [2008-3-10 20:21:3 by Eric Hz]: I wanted to see Joba Chamberlain face Jay Bruce, but Chamberlain reached his pitch limit after facing the batter before Bruce. I did get to see if Bruce is teachable though. And Dusty Baker must be thrilled! Bruce swung at the first pitch and looped a single into RF.
