The Jaguars have traded QB Blaine Gabbert to the 49ers for a 6th round pick.
QB-guru Jim Harbaugh will have his work cut out for him in an attempt to find a suitable back up to Colin Kaepernick. This is a low-risk, low-reward move for the savvy 49ers.ANALYST: Steve Perrotta
I would not have given six dollars for Blaine Gabbert, but I guess it is arguably an upgrade of the Niners current backup quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Henry Owens will make his spring-training debut Friday.
While Owens' ERA jumped with his move to Triple-A last season, his K:BB spiked, leaving the Red Sox believing that he could be ready fro a jump to the majors soon. He'll debut this spring but will likely open the year at Triple-A to hone his craft. Should he dominate, the team could potentially bring him up for the second half. Analysis: Howard Bender
Hank Conger is dealing with a sore left wrist.
With the Astros saying that Evan Gattis will not play behind the plate at all this season, Conger steps in as the unequivocal back-up to Jason Castro. He's not really competing with Max Stassi who is seeing time in camp right now. Conger is day-to-day but should be just fine in a few days. Analysis: Howard Bender
