LEADING OFF: Greinke debuts, Cubs try for elusive 1st win
A look at the highlights of what’s happening all around spring training in Florida and Arizona today:
Dodgers star Zack Greinke makes his spring debut. He got an injection of a lubricating agent in his right elbow when camp opened. Greinke faces the Cubs.
ANY DAY NOW
The full-of-hope Chicago Cubs are the only team in the majors without a win this spring. At 0-6, they’ll try again when newcomer Jon Lester starts against the Dodgers in Mesa, Arizona.
Mets ace Matt Harvey makes his second start of the spring, taking on the Marlins in Jupiter, Florida. In his first outing since missing a year because of Tommy John surgery, Harvey pitched two perfect innings vs. Detroit.
Maybe Aaron Hicks will be back in the Twins’ lineup when they play Tampa Bay. First-year manager Paul Molitor pulled Hicks from Tuesday’s game after the 25-year-old outfielder was on the bases and lost track of how many outs there were.
Prized White Sox prospect Carlos Rodon starts against Texas. Last week, the 22-year-old lefty struck four Padres in two innings.
