Brent Morel went 1-4 with a strikeout against San Diego -- but more importantly, he didn't take a walk. That makes it an even 50 trips to the plate in spring training without the third baseman drawing a free pass, which is a concerning trend given his results last year.
The White Sox lost that game to San Diego by a score of 13-2, with Dylan Axelrod failing to put together a great outing results-wise. The best bet is, right now, Zach Stewart has the inside edge to win a long relief spot in the bullpen, although there's still plenty of time for that to change. Gavin Floyd was roughed up in the Sox other game, allowing six runs in his final inning of work against Colorado.

Omar Vizquel will make the Blue Jays. Prost!
Around the division: Progressive Field is going green, the Indians released Cristian Guzman, Luis Mendoza and Danny Duffy will round of Kansas City's rotation, Nick Nelson runs down Minnesota's starting pitching and Joel Zumaya's going to "give it one more shot."
