Huston Street made his first appearance of the spring Tuesday pitching one scoreless inning allowing only a walk while striking out two batters.
Street has missed most of the spring due to a pulled groin muscle. He looked good in his first game back and is slated to be the Padres closer when they open the season at home against the Dodgers on the 30th of March.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
What a shock. Suddenly teams are interested in a 24-year old who is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 43:16 K:BB over 54.0 innings. Never saw that coming. The Braves did a nice job not only acquiring Miller, but also in developing him more. His use of a new cutter is increasing his ground ball rate and he is inducing a lot more weak contact. As a result, strikeouts are up, walks are down and Miller looks like a tremendous asset.Expect teams to make pitches for Miller, but don't expect the Braves to bite. Analysis: Howard Bender
