Stephen Gonsalves worked two scoreless innings Thursday as the Twins edged the University of Minnesota 2-1.

The Twins won on a walkoff wild pitch in the bottom of the ninth. Gonsalves allowed one hit, walked none and struck out one. One of the club's top prospects, he's expected to lead the Triple-A rotation this year after debuting for Rochester last August. He could see the majors come June or July.

Chandler Shepherd started and pitched two scoreless innings Thursday as the Red Sox topped Boston College 4-2.

Shepherd earned a spot on Boston's 40-man roster while posting a 68/18 K/BB ratio in 59 2/3 innings for Triple-A Pawtucket last season. The 25-year-old is expected to get his first look as a starter in Triple-A to begin this year. Still, his best hope of turning into a useful major leaguer will be in middle relief.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Thursday that he might not name a closer before the end of spring training.

"That’s not a goal at all," Matheny told Rick Hummel. "It will define itself in time. It’s completely different this year, where we have a number of different guys. Having a number of guys that could finish a game would be great." General manager John Mozeliak said last month that Luke Gregerson would occupy that role, but Matheny figures to get the chance to make the final call. Gregerson does seem like the team's best option, though, with Tyler Lyons perhaps stepping in if multiple lefties are due in the ninth. Bud Norris did have 19 saves for the Angels last year, but he seems like the weakest bet of the trio from a performance standpoint.

The Rangers are the favorites to sign Cuban defector Juan Pablo Martinez, according to MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez.

The Yankees and Marlins have also been in the running for the 21-year-old Martinez, who will be free to sign with a team on March 6. It's possible Martinez could see major league time this year, but the smart money says he's going to need a full year in the minors before he'll be ready to compete for a job.

Jerad Eickhoff was perfect for two innings Thursday as the Phillies defeated the University of Tampa by a 6-0 score.

Eickhoff missed the final month of last season with nerve irritation in his throwing hand. Though he was disappointing before that, he's essentially promised a spot in the Phillies' rotation this year. He should be of some use in NL-only leagues.

Alex Wilson struck out five of six batters in two perfect innings Thursday as the Tigers beat Florida Southern 6-1.

In all, Tigers pitchers struck out 18 batters today, allowing just one hit to the Mocs. The 31-year-old Wilson has started only one game in 231 major league appearances and hasn't regularly started games since he was in Double-A in 2011, but the Tigers have nothing to lose by giving him a chance at the rotation this spring.
