    Jeremy Guthrie gives Royals five-plus scoreless innings on Thursday
    by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
    (7:30 pm ET) Royals starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie, the team's No. 5 starter, turned in a solid outing, outdueling Felix Hernandez Thursday afternoon for his first Cactus League win of the year. 

    Guthrie tossed four innings of no-hit ball until Nelson Cruz recorded leadoff single off the right-hander in the fifth. He allowed two hits and no walks while striking out two in 5 2/3 scoreless innings. He has a 3.52 ERA this spring.

    "I was able to throw all my pitches for strikes," Guthrie said, per the Kansas City Star. "Felt healthy and strong, which obviously is the most important thing for everybody, to feel like you're getting your strength up. We're getting toward the end of spring."


    Mariners' Hernandez after Thursday's start: 'My fastball was good'
    by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
    (7:20 pm ET) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez turned in a dominant outing, but it went to waste due to no run support in Seattle's 3-0 Cactus League defeat to Kansas City.

    The right-hander yielded one run on two hits and no walks while striking out four over six innings of work -- his longest outing of the spring. He owns a 5.91 ERA through three Cactus League starts (10 2/3 innings).

    "My fastball was good," Hernandez said, per the Tacoma News Tribune. "When my fastball is good, everything is better."


    Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw to have stitches removed before next start
    by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
    (7:05 pm ET) Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw said Thursday that his jaw still feels sore from the line drive that hit him during Friday's game.

    Kershaw had two teeth damaged during the incident. He had one tooth extracted and another one repaired last week, and is expected to have his stitches removed before his next start.

    "I can't eat any jaw breakers," Kershaw said, jokingly, per the Orange County Register.

    Astros P Brady Aiken says he had Tommy John surgery
    by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
    (7:04 pm ET) Astros pitcher Brady Aiken took to Twitter to announce that he had Tommy John surgery on Wednesday. 

    Aiken talked about the surgery and what he'll have to overcome in a piece on theplayerstribune.com. 

    "Yesterday, I had Tommy John surgery to fix my left arm. I’m obviously extremely disappointed. I wanted to let my pitching speak for itself, but now there are going to be new distractions. For that reason, I wanted to be the one to tell people what’s happened and make this a fresh start.

    "When I visited the doctor’s office and got the news I had torn my UCL, I can’t even begin to express how I felt. I was — and still am — overwhelmed with a lot of different feelings, but mostly it’s disappointment. I won’t be able to pitch this season, and this is going to keep me from doing what I love most of all — competing. It’s going to be frustrating, and not just from a baseball perspective. When it’s 90 degrees at home in Cardiff and the waves are perfect and I can’t surf, that’ll be tough, too. I know the road ahead will be full of patience and hard work, and I’m ready for that challenge."

    Aiken was the first overall pick by the Astros in 2014.


    Rangers P Derek Holland on track for home opener
    by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
    (6:44 pm ET) Rangers pitcher Derek Holland is on track to pitch in the team's home opener, according to the Dallas Morning News.

    Holland had been dealing with some shoulder soreness earlier in spring training. The lefty will be held out until the home opener, which is the fifth game of the season.

    Manager Jeff Banister seems content with holding him out to help avoid a setback.

    "There are two opening days," Banister said.

    Holland has only pitched three innings this spring, giving up two hits and a walk.
