Marco Belinelli Headshot

Belinelli scored 20 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT) with three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 21 minutes in a 109-102 win over the Magic on Wednesday.

Belinelli's 20 points led all bench scorers in the game, and it was his highest scoring night dating all the way back to a 22 point game on Nov. 19. An inordinate number of free throws allowed the Italian guard to rack up points quickly and efficiently-- his eight attempts were his most of the season. Belinelli is a decent NBA bench player as he consistently gets over 20 minutes of run, but he has done little to prove his fantasy value in even deeper leagues over the course of the season. It's probably safest to consider this game an outlier and move along.

Alex Cobb Headshot

Cobb gave up three earned runs on six hits, a walk and a wlid pitch over 5.1 innings in Tuesday's 5-4 Grapefruit League loss to the Pirates.

The right-hander improved as the game went on, overcoming the first-inning home run he gave up to John Jaso and the wild pitch that allowed Jose Usuna to score in the fourth. Cobb described himself as starting off "a little timid" and "too mechanical" before settling in. The 29-year-old was able to demonstrate improved command of his fastball and got his typical assortment of groundball outs with his changeup as the game went on. Cobb also worked on his curveball early in counts as he continues to refine his mechanics in anticipation of serving as the team's No. 3 starter.

Kemba Walker Headshot

Walker posted 22 points (8-21 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven assists and three rebounds across 33 minutes in Wednesday's 109-102 win over the Magic.

Walker finally eclipsed the 20 point mark after failing to do so in his previous three games, but at 38.1 percent from the field, he wasn't all that efficient in getting there. The All Star point guard has failed to break 40 percent from the field in any his past six contests, meaning we can safely classify this recent stretch as a shooting slump. Despite his shot being off, Walker distributed the ball the best he has in four games-- he recorded just one turnover against his seven assists.
9:47 pm (EST)
John Henson Headshot

Henson (thumb) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Kings.

Henson appears to have sprained his left thumb during Tuesday's tilt with the Trail Blazers, as he showed up on the Bucks' injury report earlier today. In order to avoid the risk of aggravating it further, Henson will receive the night off Wednesday, with his next opportunity to see the floor on Friday against the Hawks. Look for both Greg Monroe and Thon Maker to share the center workload in his place, likely meaning an uptick in playing time for both players.
9:20 pm (EST)
Matt Garza Headshot

Garza owns a 6.57 ERA, 2.11 WHIP, and 5:6 K:BB in 12.1 innings over five appearances this spring.

Garza has hardly had a productive spring, but he is due $12.5 million in 2017, so he still has a shot to break camp with a spot in the starting rotation. He is coming off his best outing of the spring, one in which he gave up just one earned run over 3.2 innings, but he did allow the opponent to average over two baserunners per inning for the fourth straight outing.
9:14 pm (EST)
Jake Buchanan Headshot

Buchanan (illness) gave up four runs in two innings of work his last time out, allowing six hits while striking out two batters against the Brewers.

Buchanan is now sporting a 7.56 ERA across 8.1 innings through spring. With the Cubs' offseason bullpen acquisitions, it seems Buchanan will spend the year in Triple-A, although he could see some major league innings if injuries take toll on Chicago's bullpen.
9:04 pm (EST)
Alex Bregman Headshot

Bregman will return to training camp after the World Baseball Classic ends and is expected to play in a Grapefruit League game Friday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Bregman has barely played in the WBC and really needs to get some at-bats in game action before the regular season hits. That's why he'll hit the ground running in Houston while Carlos Correa and Carlos Beltran will resume spring training Saturday.
9:04 pm (EST)
Jett Bandy Headshot

Bandy went 1-for-17 over his last six spring games and now owns just a .519 OPS during the exhibition season.

Bandy got off to a good start this spring, but his recent stretch has done quite a bit of damage to his statistics. His slump is not doing him any favors in the competition for playing time behind the plate with the big league club -- particularly because it coincides with a hot stretch for fellow backstop Manny Pina -- but he is still seemingly the favorite to open the season as the Brewers' top catcher ahead of Pina and Andrew Susac.
8:59 pm (EST)
Dallas Keuchel Headshot

Keuchel allowed two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out three over five innings in Wednesday's game against Minnesota, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Other than a lengthy third inning, Keuchel pitched well during his third Grapefruit League start. Overall, the left-hander was pleased that he was able to escape hitter's counts and induce weak contact in the form of nine groundball outs. All signs point to Keuchel taking the ball Opening Day at home against Seattle on April 3.
