There appears to be no clear-cut front-runner for the Minnesota Twins' final rotation spot between SPs Samuel Deduno, Vance Worley, Scott Diamond and Kyle Gibson, but Deduno may be the slight favorite because of his success last year. Deduno has looked healthy this spring after having arthroscopic surgery on his shoulder last September. Manager Ron Gardenhire indicated he'd like Deduno on the roster as either a starter or reliever this year. Worley is also healthy after having shoulder problems last year, and he's roughly 25 pounds lighter than 2013. Gibson might be on the outside looking in at the end of camp, because he still has minor league options left.

Pittsburgh Pirates C Russell Martin hit another home run Monday, March 10, and is 8-for-15 with nine RBIs and four long balls in six spring games. "It's really just (about) hitting the mistakes, staying aggressive, seeing the ball well and trusting myself up there," Martin said. "I'm not taking pitches. I'm aggressive until the pitch tells me not to swing."

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Braves SP Brandon Beachy (elbow) said his ligament is fine and he's just dealing with some inflammation in his right elbow. He said he had some tightness in his arm in his previous two spring starts, too, and was told it was something he could try to pitch through and that it might loosen up after throwing. "He thought it was something that he could get through it. And we let him, to a certain point," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "Again, I don't think it's something that we need to panic about, and we'll take it a day at a time." Beachy doesn't think he'll need to undergo an MRI exam.
