News & Notes
  • The Marlins coaching staff not only believes that J.T. Realmuto is an everyday player, but his talent is so great that Don Mattingly, who is looking more and more like an iguana every day, says "his upside is greater than Yandy Diaz," which if true, could help him win the 86 games he needs to save his job.

  • Scott Servais loves the bat of Ryon Healy, but he concedes that he may be forced to move him to second base if he doesn't recover from his swollen oblique by spring training.

  • Everyone this side of Chittagong knows the Yankees want Ildemaro Vargas, but because the Diamondbacks are not yet willing to concede that their season is gratified, Brian Cashman has been also shopping for another bat, like JaCoby Jones, Chris Owings (whose guardian angel would be a good fit in New York), or Kevin Plawecki.

  • The Orioles insist that Jimmy Yacabonis's pancit addiction is not serious, and he'll be available this weekend. They are fortunate that they have so deep a staff with Alex Cobb and Austin Brice.
