I just cannot pick Kyle Gibson for my Deep Sleepers column for a third straight year. He's having a solid spring, but he always does that: he has a 2.80 ERA and 2.89:1 K-to-walk ratio in 18 spring starts from 2015-17.

Byron Buxton just made the best catch I've seen all spring - a face-first diving grab to rob Ryan Goins. Took a while to get up but waved Paul Molitor & the trainer back to the dugout

Eddie Rosario en silencio hace mucho ruido

Mientras las cámaras se enfocan en peloteros del calibre de Carlos Correa, Javier Báez, Francisco Lindor, Yadier Molina y Carlos Beltrán, Rosario ha sido igualmente integral para el inicio perfecto que ha tenido Puerto Rico y él aspira que su desempeño le abra las puertas de la titularidad en los jardines con los Mellizos.

Jim Bowden ESPN Baseball Analyst 

Thad Levine Twins GM went home for the weekend because his daughter had a school project, Dave Roberts Manager of the Dodgers left camp to go see his daughter's school play and Clint Hurdle departed spring training to attend the funeral of a close friend. Finally baseball is starting to treat their employees with better respect and understanding of the importance of better balance in their lives with respect to family, friends and grueling work schedules.
