Gallo, who was the team's first-round draft pick in 2012, hit .250 in 15 games this spring with two home runs and six RBI. Alfaro hit .313 with four RBI in 16 plate appearances while Mazara hit .286 in seven at-bats.
"I was never concerned about that, because he's always been a guy that people have turned to and loved being around," Girardi said. "But I've been impressed by the way he's played and the way he has been able to contribute."
Rodriguez has hit .324 this spring with three home runs and four RBI in 37 plate appearances.
"We are looking at all possibilities, all possible scenarios," Showalter said. "I don't have any doubt that we have a number of guys that could do it, including Manny, but you've got to be careful about robbing Peter to pay Paul."
Machado was a shortstop before making it to the majors.
Lawrie's first home run was of the solo variety hit off of Ryan Arrowood. His second was a three-run shot off of LaTroy Hawkins in the sixth inning. This gives Lawrie four home runs in his last eight games.
According to the Orange County Register, Cowart will resume switch-hitting again, most likely in an attempt to spark his once promising career. Cowart is coming off of two poor seasons in the minors, which led to the Angels not inviting him to big league camp this spring training.
The Angels are also discussing the possibility of converting Cowart into a pitcher if his hitting doesn't improve. Cowart hit just .223 with Double-A Arkansas a year ago.
The Jays released infielder Ramon Santiago . The 35-year-old Santiago was signed as a free agent in the offseason and hit .417 in spring training.
The team also reassigned first baseman Daric Barton to its minor league camp. Barton signed as an offseason free agent and hit .250 this spring.
"One of our goals this offseason was to give ourselves more options," general manager Jeff Luhnow said, per the Houston Chronicle. "Our infield production last year, with the exception of (Jose) Altuve, was below what we really needed it to compete in this division.
"So we went out to address upgrades at shortstop (accomplished with the signing of Jed Lowrie) and options at third and first base, and I think we're seeing the results of that. Valbuena had an amazing spring so far and is basically going to be our third baseman."
Valbuena is batting .405 (17 for 42) with two home runs, five doubles, four runs, eight RBI, four walks and six strikeouts in 15 spring games.
