San Diego Padres C Yasmani Grandal (knee) caught a simulated game Saturday, March 8, in his first live action since having anterior cruciate ligament surgery Aug. 6. He is nearing game action in a Cactus League spring game. He worked in every other inning of the simulated game. "It moves him closer to an actual game," manager Bud Black said. "We're trying to mimic a game here, especially for the pitchers and for Yazi."

Chicago Cubs SP Edwin Jackson made 50 pitches in his Cactus League outing Friday, March 7, and he decided to only throw fastballs. He apparently did not tell manager Rick Renteria or pitching coach Chris Bosio of his intentions, and the two planned to sit down with him to discuss. "I think maybe, as we talk about fastball command, maybe he was thinking, 'I'm going to try to hit the spots," Renteria said. "He got into a little trouble yesterday and he had some elevated pitches and some pulled pitches."
