A.J. Burnett allowed two runs, three hits, including a home run, and two walks with three strikeouts over 7.1 innings in the win over the Padres Tuesday.
Wow A.J. Burnett actually held an opponent to two or fewer runs. What gives? Did the Phillies host an exhibition game against the school of the blind? Oh wait, never mind, they played the Padres, that explains how he was able to achieve this feat for the first time in seven starts. Burnett will look to win back-to-back starts for just the second time this season when he takes the mound on Sunday, in another home start, this time against the Cubs.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
