Dakota Hudson's strong outing (5 shutout IP, 8 K's) probably clinches him a rotation spot, though he shouldn't be counted on for that kind of strikeout rate during the regular season. He's a pitch-to-contact, 55-60% ground ball type who will probably be susceptible to matchups.

Caleb Smith now has 13 K's in nine innings of two spring starts. Don't forget: He had a 3.51 ERA and 29.9 K% in his first 11 starts last year. Smith cost $1 in LABR (March 3) and $6 in Tout Wars (March 17), but now belongs in the "dart throw" tier for ESPN standard leagues.

Jacoby Ellsbury says he's happy to finally be in Yankees camp. He isn't ready to give a timeline for his possible return to games, but he's beginning baseball activity. After getting surgery on his hip he "almost feels like I have a new leg." He adds the plantar fascia issue with his right foot is one he's played with for years.

Spent some time at Padres camp on Saturday. Andy Green said this about his team: "I know people think we still have some things to do before we're fully formed, but the Brewers weren't fully formed in the rotation last year, and they were playing all the way through the postseason. It's a good club now."
