Devin Mesoraco's home run streak ends at five as he had a base hit in four at-bats with a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Cubs in Wrigley.
While the 26-year old's five-game home streak came to an end on Wednesday he did manage to extend his current hit streak to eight games where he is hitting .393 (11-for-28) with the five home runs, 14 RBI, 10 runs scored, and five walks to four strikeouts.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
