- The Twins traded RHP Vance Worley to the Pirates for cash. Just last offseason, Worley was traded for Ben Revere, in a trade that worked out for nobody. Revere did at least improve as 2013 went on, though.
- Michael Pineda will be the Yankees number 5 starter this year. He, too was dealt last offseason; for Jesus Montero—in yet another trade that hasn't worked out for anybody yet.
- (LGFT?) Jeff Francoeur signed with the Padres on a minor league deal.
- (LGFT?) David Aardsma might sign with the Rays.
- The Pirates had 29 hits yesterday in their 22-5 victory over the Blue Jays.

- Bastian chimes in on the fifth starter race:
Tomlin had great spring. But dont be surprised if Carrasco wins job. Helps control JT's innings early. Gives CC window to prove reliability.
- Let's hope this pans out...
