Reds pitching prospect Michael Lorenzen will say that the decision of whether he makes the big league team out of camp is out of his hands, but his performance on Thursday certainly didn't hurt his chances.
Todd Frazier and Devin Mesoraco each belted a home run for the Reds on Thursday, capitalizing on a rough day on the mound for Indians starter Danny Salazar in a 13-2 victory over Cleveland at Goodyear Ballpark.
The Reds will admit that the farm system had a stretch when it was thin. There's a feeling now that things are changing for the better. Starting pitching as a strength, and the additions of Anthony DeSclafani -- who's pitched well this spring -- and Jonathon Crawford via trades has bolstered an already good group.
Fun nights are set for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos this season. From Battle of the Stars, Princess Night, Little Hero Day and a Bubba Watson bobblehead giveaway, there is something for every age at Pensacola Bayfront Stadium this season.
Travis Mattair holds the franchise records in home runs and runs batted in, but Blue Wahoos fans will remember him for much more than that. Moose would throw foul balls to kids in the stands and stay after games signing autographs to quickly become a fan favorite.
The Pensacola Blue Wahoos are heading to Atmore, Ala., on April 7th for Spring Training and invite our fans to join. This is an unforgettable opportunity to enjoy practice and spend the evening at Wind Creek Casino with the team.

Hours after his manager laughed off concern about Jason Heyward not yet having registered an extra-base hit this spring, the right fielder blasted his first -- all the way onto the porch of the team complex beyond the right-field wall.
Adam Wainwright had very specific goals going into his penultimate start of the spring on Thursday. And he left the complex confident he had accomplished them -- even if it had happened mostly outside the public eye.
Giancarlo Stanton blasted a home run and tacked on an RBI double on Thursday as the Marlins edged the Cardinals, 5-3, at Roger Dean Stadium. The Miami slugger connected for the second time this spring, unloading a mammoth drive off Adam Wainwright in the first inning.

Left-hander Clayton Richard's name comes up just about every time Pirates manager Clint Hurdle is asked about his club's rotation depth. It happened again after Richard pitched Thursday against the Braves. "Clayton is a guy you have to talk about," Hurdle said.
With the Pirates set to make a decision soon about their final rotation spot, Vance Worley made what could be his final argument for the job Thursday. The final line wasn't pretty -- five runs on seven hits over six innings -- but Worley was victimized by one bad inning. The rest of the way, he was all but untouchable.
Spring Training lineups don't often reflect the real deal come Opening Day, but the Pirates have trotted out something close to their everyday squad each of the past two games. The constants between those lineups were clear: Josh Harrison first, Andrew McCutchen third and Starling Marte fifth. Not that it's on their minds at this point.
The Braves jumped out to a five-run lead in the first inning off Pirates starter Vance Worley and beat the Bucs, 7-5, on Thursday afternoon at McKechnie Field. After the Pirates chipped away at the deficit and tied the game in the eighth, Atlanta's Jonny Gomes led off the ninth with a homer. Neil Walker and Josh Harrison went deep for the Bucs.
Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen arrived at McKechnie Field on Thursday morning sporting a newly shorn look after cutting off his trademark dreadlocks, which will be auctioned off to benefit Pirates Charities.
