Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle continues to try and figure out the team's left field and first base positions this spring. 2B Michael Martinez, who is a switch hitter and can play second base and the outfield, is the only one who has distinguished himself in the game Monday, March 11. OFs Andrew Lambo, Jaff Decker, Chris Dickerson, Chris McGuiness and Travis Snider and 1B Travis Ishikawa are all in the mix. "We'll just keep giving them opportunities to play. We'll keep giving them at-bats and see where they take them," said Hurdle, who has begun to divide what he refers to as "separation" among the candidates. "But I'm not gonna seed them for you."

San Diego Padres OF Cameron Maybin (knee) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 10, with a left knee sprain. The Padres have recalled OF Jaff Decker from Triple-A Tucson.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how long Maybin will be out, but a knee sprain may require more than the minimum stay. Decker, 23, would be making his major league debut with his first appearance and is one of the club's better prospects, although he's not necessarily in line for much PT at this point. Chris Denorfia should have deep mixed league value for a stretch again.
