Jeremy Hazelbaker slugged a solo homer as the Diamondbacks defeated the Rockies 7-6 in 10 innings on Friday to begin the Cactus League schedule.

Hazelbaker proved useful in limited playing time with the Diamondbacks last season, batting .346/.443/.577 with six extra-base hits (including two homers) in 61 plate appearances. The outfield is very crowded at the moment, but the 30-year-old would be in better position if the Diamondbacks end up trading Yasmany Tomas this spring.

Brendan Rodgers slugged a solo homer and drove in another run with a groundout Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Rodgers led off the bottom of the 10th with a solo homer, but the Rockies were unable to complete the comeback. One of the more attractive bats for dynasty league purposes, Rodgers produced a .336/.373/.567 batting line with 18 homers over 89 games last season between High-A and Double-A. The 21-year-old had a .737 OPS during his first test in Double-A, so repeating the level in 2018 should be a good test for him.

David Dahl went 0-for-2 against the Diamondbacks on Friday in Cactus League action.

Dahl didn’t play in the majors in 2017 and was limited to 19 rehab games in the minors while battling a nagging stress reaction in his rib, but he’s healthy now and hopes to deliver on the promise he showed as a rookie in 2016. The Rockies aren’t going to hand him a job, though. He’s going to have to compete for at-bats in the outfield.

Yasmany Tomas singled and drew a walk in Friday’s Cactus League game against the Rockies.

While Tomas had a nice day at the plate, the same couldn’t be said for in the field, as he misplayed a fly ball and had it roll past him for an error. The Diamondbacks acquired both Steven Souza and Jarrod Dyson this week, so Tomas is an expensive bench bat at the moment. A trade would be the best outcome — preferably to an AL club — but the D-Backs would have to eat some cash to make it palatable.

Brad Boxberger tossed a scoreless inning in his spring debut Friday against the Rockies.

Acquired from the Rays over the winter, Boxberger struck out one and walked one. The 29-year-old had more injury issues last year, but he has closed in the past and will be considered along with Archie Bradley and Yoshihisa Hirano this spring.
Feb 23 - 9:51 PM

Jeff Hoffman threw two scoreless innings in his Cactus League debut Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Hoffman didn’t give up a hit while walking two and striking out one. The 25-year-old posted a 5.89 ERA over 16 starts and seven relief appearances with the Rockies last season. He’s competing with Kyle Freeland and Antonio Senzatela for the fifth starter job this spring.

Anthony Garcia delivered a walk-off two-run single in the Athletics’ 9-8 victory over the Angels on Friday.

It was a back-and-forth affair, but the A’s walked away with the victory when Garcia punched a single to left field off Branden Pinder. Garcia, 26, signed a minor league deal with the Athletics over the winter after spending his previous nine seasons in the Cardinals’ minor league system. He batted .282/.359/.466 with 16 homers over 115 games between Double- and Triple-A last year. Garcia has never played in the majors, but he'll try to earn his way there with his new organization.
Feb 23 - 9:11 PM

Matt Olson slugged a two-run homer in Friday’s Cactus League opener against the Angels.

Picking up where he left off. Olson slugged 24 homers with a 1.003 OPS in 59 games with the A’s last season, including 20 homers over his final 38 games. Oddly, he only managed two doubles in 216 plate appearances, but fantasy owners can’t complain about the power. Olson hits the ball in the air and hits it hard, so there’s reason to believe he can keep it going.
