Michael Pineda (2-1) tossed six shutout innings in the second game versus the Cubs on Wednesday allowing just four hits, one walk with three strikeouts in the win.
More times than not spring training performances and reports are often something that carries very little weight once the regular season starts, but in the case of Pineda hopefully you bought in as he now has an ERA of just 1.00 with 15 strikeouts to just three walks in 18 innings (3 starts). Pineda will look to defeat the Red Sox for the second time this season in his next start in Boston likely on Tuesday. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Sean Marshall (shoulder) has resumed throwing from flat ground.
Marshall was shut down at the beginning of spring training with shoulder soreness, but has resumed throwing. Last June, Marshall underwent season ending shoulder surgery after making just 15 appearances in 2014. The only thing scarier than last season's 7.71 ERA is the fact that he has had some sort of shoulder injury in each of the last three seasons. Leave this guy off your draft board.

Nathan Eovaldi has been working on improving his splitter during spring training.
Eovaldi is more of a thrower than a pitcher right now, but the Yankees are hoping he can develop into a mainstay in their rotation. Even though he hasn't had a winning season in his four year career, his velocity is hope for optimism. Eovaldi got knocked around a lot last year, but he doesn't walk many batters, something else the Yankees are excited about. Eovaldi is going late in drafts and there is some solid value to be had if he can take the next step forward. Analysis: Colby Conway
