Kyle Seager went 2-for-2 with a double and an RBI in a Cactus League win over the Padres on Friday.

He laced an RBI double off starter Brett Kennedy in the first inning. The 30-year-old is solidly entrenched as the Mariners' starting third baseman after registering a .249 batting average with 27 home runs and 88 RBI a year ago.

Tucker Barnhart cracked a two-run homer as the Reds beat the Indians 6-4 on Friday.

He took reliever Dan Otero deep with a runner aboard in the third inning. Barnhart is set to be the Reds' primary catcher this year with veteran Devin Mesoraco serving as the backup.

Yonder Alonso belted a solo home run in Friday's spring training opener against the Reds.

He took starter Sal Romano over the wall in his first at-bat in an Indians uniform. He joined the Tribe as a free agent following a breakout season with the Athletics and Mariners. Alonso slugged .266/.365/.501 with 28 homers and 67 RBI in 142 games last year.

Domingo Santana went 2-for-2 with two doubles and a walk as the split-squad Brewers topped the Cubs 2-1 on Friday.

It was a nice start to the spring for Santana, but barring an injury or a trade, he’s likely to begin the season in a diminished role following the additions of Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain. The best outcome for all involved would be for Santana to be moved for a pitcher, but nothing has materialized as of yet.

Eric Sogard had a two-run triple in Friday’s Cactus League victory over the Cubs.

It was the difference in the ballgame. There’s a competition for second base this spring, with Sogard vying for playing time against Jonathan Villar and Hernan Perez. Sogard, 31, enjoyed his most productive season to date last year with a strong .273/.393/.378 batting line with more walks (45) than strikeouts (37) over 94 games. He wasn’t nearly as productive as the year moved along — and Neil Walker eventually took over second base — but Sogard offers strong on-base ability. Villar is the more exiting fantasy option, but he had a .293 on-base percentage last season. Meanwhile, Perez owns a .283 career on-base percentage.

Brent Suter walked one batter over a scoreless inning of work Friday against the Cubs.

Chase Anderson, Zach Davies, and Jhoulys Chacin are locked into rotation spots to begin the year, but there’s a wide-open competition beyond that. Suter will be in that mix after posting a 3.42 ERA over 14 starts and eight relief appearances last season. He could also be an option for the bullpen. Junior Guerra, last year’s Opening Day starter, also pitched a scoreless inning on Friday as he tries to state his case for the rotation. Yovani Gallardo, Brandon Woodruff, and Aaron Wilkerson are also in the mix. This competition likely won’t be decided until late in the spring.

Kyle Schwarber drew a walk and struck out in his two plate appearances Friday against the Brewers.

It was reported in November that Schwarber was "on a mission" to "transform his body" and the early evidence from spring training suggests that he has. The 24-year-old delivered a .211/.315/.467 batting line last season, but he slugged 18 homers with a .903 OPS after returning from the minors in July. There’s reason to be optimistic going into 2018.

Mike Clevinger drew the start versus the Reds on Friday and tossed a perfect inning on three pitches.

He induced first-pitch flyouts from Billy Hamilton and Eugenio Suarez before getting Joey Votto to ground out to first base. Clevinger is battling Josh Tomlin and Danny Salazar for the last two slots in the Indians' starting rotation. The 27-year-old should have a leg up on the others after going 12-6 with a 3.11 ERA in 21 starts and six relief appearances last year. He struck out 137 batters in 121 2/3 innings.
