    MLB - Preview 31 Marzo

    Preview: Royals at Tigers
    GAME: Kansas City Royals (0-0) at Detroit Tigers (0-0)
    DATE/TIME: Monday, March 31 - 1:08 PM EST
    WHERE: Comerica Park, Detroit, Michigan
    LINE: 136, -148 TOTAL: 7
    Miguel Cabrera landed a huge contract extension, Justin Verlander has rebounded from offseason surgery and the Detroit Tigers begin their run at a fourth consecutive American League Championship Series appearance when they host the Kansas City Royals on Monday. Cabrera scored an eight-year extension that raises his take-home pay to $292 million over the next 10 seasons, while Verlander didn’t allow a run all spring after having core muscle surgery. Detroit also has a new manager in Brad Ausmus, replacing the retired Jim Leyland.
    The Royals are hoping to contend in the American League Central after remaining in the wild-card hunt deep into September last season. Kansas City hasn’t been part of the postseason since winning the World Series in 1985 – the days of George Brett and Bret Saberhagen – and relies heavily on a strong bullpen led by All-Star closer Greg Holland. The Tigers have a new second baseman in Ian Kinsler, acquired in the deal that sent Prince Fielder to the Texas Rangers.
    TV: 1:08 p.m. ET, FSN Kansas City, FSN Detroit
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Royals RH James Shields (2013: 13-9, 3.15 ERA) vs. Tigers RH Justin Verlander (2013: 13-12, 3.46
    Shields is a workhorse and had a strong first season with Kansas City after being acquired from Tampa Bay. Interestingly, he was much better pitcher on the road with a 10-3 mark and 2.07 ERA compared to a 3-6 home record and 4.37 ERA. Shields is 6-3 with a 4.12 ERA in 14 career starts against Detroit.
    Verlander topped 200 strikeouts for the fifth straight season but wasn’t as dominating in 2013 while recording his lowest victory total since 2008. The 2011 AL MVP believes the offseason surgery corrected some muscle deficiencies that affected last season’s performance and he allowed only eight hits in 20 innings during spring training.. Verlander is 16-5 with a 2.85 ERA in 29 career starts against Kansas City but three of the losses occurred last season when he beat the Royals once in six outings.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Verlander is starting on Opening Day for the seventh consecutive season while Shields is making his sixth, including two straight for the Royals.
    2. Cabrera is batting .425 with two homers in 40 career at-bats against Shields.
    3. Kansas City DH Billy Butler has torched Verlander for a .441 average and two homers in 68 career at-bats.


    Preview: Cubs at Pirates
    GAME: Chicago Cubs (0-0) at Pittsburgh Pirates (0-0)
    DATE/TIME: Monday, March 31 - 1:05 PM EST
    WHERE: PNC Park, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
    LINE: 165, -180 TOTAL: 6.5
    The Pittsburgh Pirates begin trying to validate their first winning record and postseason appearance in 21 years when they open 2014 on Monday by hosting the Chicago Cubs. Pittsburgh, which won 94 games and finished second in the National League Central to eventual NL champion St. Louis, defeated Cincinnati in a wild card playoff game before losing to the Cardinals 3-2 in a best-of-five NL Division Series. "Excellence is verb, not a noun," the Pirates' Clint Hurdle, 2013 NL Manager of the Year, told reporters. "You're going to continue to push forward. Our goal is to win a sixth world championship. The fact is, we haven't won an LCS or a division series. ..."
    While Pittsburgh's expectations have gone through the roof, Chicago is just trying to get out of the basement. The Cubs finished last in the Central in 2013 -- their fourth consecutive losing season -- and first-year manager Rick Renteria figures to have his hands full in the only division to produce three playoff teams last season. The Pirates' Francisco Liriano, the 2013 NL Comeback Player of the Year, opposes the Cubs' Jeff Samardzija, who shut down Pittsburgh on Opening Day in 2013.
    TV: 1 p.m. ESPN, WGN (Chicago), ROOT (Pittsburgh)
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Cubs RH Jeff Samardzija (2013: 8-13, 4.34 ERA) vs. Pirates LH Francisco Liriano (2013: 16-8, 3.02)
    Samardzija was 1-3 with a 3.00 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and .218 batting average against in five starts versus Pittsburgh in 2013, but spoiled the Pirates' season opener by allowing two hits and striking out nine in eight shutout innings of the Cubs' 3-1 victory. Andrew McCutchen, the 2013 NL MVP, is 9-for-24 with zero RBIs against the 6-5, 225-pound Merrillville, Ind., native. Samardzija compiled a 5.14 ERA in six spring starts, allowing 28 hits in 21 innings while walking seven and striking out 19.
    Liriano, who has recovered from a groin injury suffered March 20, was 3-1 with a 2.12 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and .158 batting average against in five starts versus Chicago in 2013. The 6-2, 215-pound Dominican Republic native has held the Cubs roster to a .155 batting average, with Welington Castillo (3-for-8, home run, two RBIs) the only player who has given him significant trouble. Liriano posted a 2.31 ERA in four spring outings, allowing 11 hits in 11 2/3 innings while waking four and striking out 10.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Pittsburgh won the 2013 season series 12-7, including 7-3 at home.
    2. Pirates LF Starling Marte, who hit .280 and stole 41 bases in 2013 - his first full season -- signed a six-year contract extension worth a reported $31 million Thursday.
    3. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and a high of 59 degrees.


    Preview: Red Sox at Orioles
    GAME: Boston Red Sox (0-0) at Baltimore Orioles (0-0)
    DATE/TIME: Monday, March 31 - 3:05 PM EST
    WHERE: Oriole Park at Camen Yards, Baltimore, Maryland
    LINE: -114, 105 TOTAL: 8.5
    The Boston Red Sox begin defense of their World Series Championship when they open the 2014 season at the Baltimore Orioles on Monday. The Orioles missed out on the 2013 playoffs after a surprising surge to the postseason the previous season and made several moves over the winter to position themselves for another run in the tough American League East. The Red Sox lost a few key pieces from the 2013 squad but still have high hopes for 2014.
    Boston announced last week that reclamation project Grady Sizemore earned the starting center field job, and the former All-Star will take the field for his first regular season game since Sept. 22, 2011, on Monday in place of the departed Jacoby Ellsbury. Baltimore brought in free agents Nelson Cruz and Ubaldo Jimenez to help compete against the Red Sox, Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees, but the recovery of budding star Manny Machado (knee), who will start the season on the 15-day disabled list, might have a bigger impact on the win total. Ryan Flaherty is expected to get reps at third base while Machado is out.
    TV: 3:05 p.m. ET, ESPN2, NESN (Boston), MASN (Baltimore)
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Red Sox LH Jon Lester (2013: 15-8, 3.75 ERA) vs. Orioles RH Chris Tillman (2013: 16-7, 3.71)
    Boston eased Lester into spring training after the ace worked 34 2/3 innings with a 1.56 ERA in the postseason, including a pair of World Series wins. The 30-year-old went a career-high 213 1/3 innings in the regular season, including four starts against Baltimore in which he went 1-2 with a 4.70 ERA. Lester has been effective against Orioles slugger Chris Davis, holding him to 3-for-24 with one home run.
    Tillman had never thrown more than 86 innings in parts of four major-league seasons before breaking out last season and becoming the team’s ace over the course of 33 starts. The 25-year-old was at his best against Boston, going 3-1 with a 2.65 ERA in six turns. Tillman has held David Ortiz to one hit - a single - in 16 career at-bats.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Orioles OF/DH Nolan Reimold (neck), who has played a total of 56 games over the past two seasons, will start the season on the 15-day disabled list.
    2. Red Sox LHP Craig Breslow (left shoulder strain) will begin the season on the DL.
    3. Former Boston RHP Alfredo Aceves was in camp with Baltimore but did not make the roster and exercised the opt-out clause in his contract.


    Preview: Nationals at Mets
    GAME: Washington Nationals (0-0) at New York Mets (0-0)
    DATE/TIME: Monday, March 31 - 1:10 PM EST
    WHERE: Citi Field, New York City, New York
    LINE: -165, 152 TOTAL: 6.5
    The Washington Nationals look to begin washing away the memory of a disappointing season when they open at the New York Mets on Monday, starting a three-game series. Many expected the Nationals to make a run at the World Series in 2013, but injuries and sloppy play contributed to a 52-56 record through July that dug too deep a hole. Washington hopes to get a healthy season out of All-Star outfielder Bryce Harper in the middle of lineup for first-year manager Matt Williams.
    Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg faces a New York lineup that did not undergo as big a change as many thought it would in the offseason. Curtis Granderson and Chris Young add to an improved outfield for the Mets, but players such as Travis d’Arnaud and Ike Davis need to get off to good starts for the Mets to be competitive. Captain David Wright leads the Mets’ offense after batting at least .300 for the seventh time in the last nine seasons.
    TV: 1:10 p.m. ET, MASN2 (Washington), SNY (New York)
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Nationals RH Stephen Strasburg (2013: 8-9, 3.00 ERA) vs. Mets RH Dillon Gee (2013: 12-11, 3.62)
    Strasburg could be ready for a big season after pitching in some bad luck in 2013 and throwing 19 2/3 strong innings in the spring, yielding only four runs. The 25-year-old has struck out 504 in the first 434 1/3 frames of his career and opponents are batting .216 against him. Strasburg is 2-1 in four lifetime outings against the Mets with a 1.88 ERA over 24 innings.
    Gee rebounded from a 2-6 start to have a strong 2013 campaign, recording ERAs of 2.88 or better in June, July and August. The 27-year-old right-hander had more wins (eight) on the road, but pitched to only a 2.75 ERA at home while managing only four wins in 15 starts. Gee is 7-3 lifetime – 4-2 last year -- against the Nationals in 12 outings with a 3.04 ERA over 77 frames.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Washington boasted five players with at least 20 homers last season, including Harper, Ryan Zimmerman, Jayson Werth, Ian Desmond and Adam LaRoche.
    2. Mets LF Eric Young Jr. stole 38 bases in 91 games last season after being acquired from Colorado.
    3. The Nationals won 12 of 19 meetings in 2013, including a 7-3 mark at New York.


    Preview: Twins at White Sox
    GAME: Minnesota Twins (0-0) at Chicago White Sox (0-0)
    DATE/TIME: Monday, March 31 - 4:10 PM EST
    WHERE: U.S Cellular Field, Chicago, Illinois
    LINE: 152, -165 TOTAL: 7
    The Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins spent most of the 2013 campaign fighting to stay out of last place in the American League Central. Both clubs will look to get off to a better start when the White Sox host the Twins on Monday. The White Sox made a series of moves in the offseason to upgrade the club in the present and in the future and will get a look at newcomers like Adam Eaton and Cuban slugger Jose Abreu in the opener.
    The Twins own one of the best farm systems in the majors but might not see the best of that system until next season at the earliest, leaving Joe Mauer to carry a heavy burden again. Mauer was moved out from behind the plate as Minnesota tries to get the most out of its biggest investment, and the perennial All-Star will man first base this season. Chicago is making a move to get younger but brought back veteran first baseman Paul Konerko and has Adam Dunn around to mentor young sluggers like Abreu and third baseman Matt Davidson.
    TV: 4:10 p.m. ET, FSN North (Minnesota), CSN Chicago
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Twins RH Ricky Nolasco (2013: 13-11, 3.70 ERA) vs. White Sox LH Chris Sale (2013: 11-14, 3.07)
    Minnesota picked up Nolasco in free agency with a four-year, $49 million contract to provide quality innings at the top of the rotation. The veteran is making his first regular starts against American League competition after spending the first eight seasons of his career with Miami and the Los Angeles Dodgers and battled through some rough spots in the spring before looking sharp in his final turn. Nolasco posted an 8-11 record with a 4.66 ERA in 23 interleague starts while in the National League.
    Sale could have brought home the Cy Young Award with a little more run support but instead settled for fifth place in the voting in 2013. Sale, who turned 25 on Saturday, made a big leap forward with his walk rate in 2013, allowing only 1.9 free passes per nine innings while striking out an average of 9.5 in that span. The Florida native made two starts against the Twins last season and allowed a total of seven runs and 16 hits in 12 innings.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. The Twins took the season series 11-8 in 2013.
    2. Minnesota INF/OF Jason Bartlett, who is making his return to the team after sitting out 2013 due to injuries following stints in Tampa Bay and San Diego, made the final roster.
    3. Chicago 2B Marcus Semien is expected to start the opener with 2B Gordon Beckham (oblique) beginning the season on the DL.


    Preview: Braves at Brewers
    GAME: Atlanta Braves (0-0) at Milwaukee Brewers (0-0)
    DATE/TIME: Monday, March 31 - 2:10 PM EST
    WHERE: Miller Park, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
    LINE: -113, 104 TOTAL: 7.5
    The Atlanta Braves are going after their second straight National League East title but had to deal with some big hits to the rotation during spring training. Julio Teheran will get the nod on Opening Day when the Braves visit the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday. Atlanta lost Kris Medlen to an elbow injury and Brandon Beachy’s return from Tommy John surgery took another setback, leading the team to bring in veteran free agents Ervin Santana and Aaron Harang during camp.
    Harang and Santana will cost the Braves a combined $15.1 million this season, but the added hit to the payroll will be worth it if the two help keep them ahead of the Washington Nationals in the NL East race. The Brewers finished 14 games under .500 last season but are hoping a full season from Ryan Braun and the addition of Matt Garza to the rotation can push the team back into the wild card race. Braun played in only 61 games last season due to injuries and a PED suspension and will shift over to right field this year to make room for Khris Davis in left.
    TV: 2:10 p.m. ET, SportSouth (Atlanta), FSN Wisconsin (Milwaukee)
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Braves RH Julio Teheran (2013: 14-8, 3.20 ERA) vs. Brewers RH Yovani Gallardo (2013: 12-10, 4.18)
    Teheran spent several seasons near the top of prospect lists before finally breaking out in 2013 and was rewarded with a six-year, $32.4 million contract extension at the beginning of spring training. The Colombia native is unquestionably the team’s best healthy starter with left-hander Mike Minor (shoulder) and right-hander Gavin Floyd (elbow) also out of the rotation at the moment. Teheran made one start against Milwaukee last season and absorbed a loss despite surrendering only two runs in 6 1/3 innings.
    Gallardo’s path to stardom took a detour last season as the Mexico native lost more than a mile per hour off his fastball while seeing his strikeout rate decrease and ERA rise as a result. The 28-year-old will be making his fifth straight Opening Day start, however, and is hoping to get back to the consistent 200-strikeout, sub-.400 ERA hurler he was prior to 2013. Gallardo missed Atlanta last season and is 4-1 with a 2.01 ERA in seven career starts against the Braves.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Brewers SS Jean Segura (shoulder) was limited to DH at-bats in minor league camp during the week and may not be ready for the opener.
    2. Atlanta released veteran RHP Freddy Garcia and will instead give RHP David Hale a shot in the rotation.
    3. Milwaukee LHP Tom Gorzelanny (shoulder) will begin the season on the 15-day disabled list while Rule 5 pick LHP Wei-Chung Wang will make the roster.

    Preview: Blue Jays at Rays
    GAME: Toronto Blue Jays (0-0) at Tampa Bay Rays (0-0)
    DATE/TIME: Monday, March 31 - 4:10 PM EST
    WHERE: Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg, Florida
    LINE: 153, -166 TOTAL: 7
    The Tampa Bay Rays begin their campaign for a fifth trip to the playoffs in seven years when they host the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday to start a four-game set. Ben Zobrist, Evan Longoria, 2013 American League Rookie of the Year Wil Myers and James Loney lead an offense which was ranked fourth in the majors in on-base percentage (.329) a year ago. Toronto looks to start over after a rough 2013 season when it finished last in the American League East despite being expected to contend.
    The Rays will again lean on a strong starting rotation as ace David Price takes to the mound for the opener. The Blue Jays’ staff struggled last year, but are always dangerous with sluggers Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion in the lineup. Toronto would be instantly better if they can get a healthier season out of leadoff hitter Jose Reyes after he played only 93 games in 2013, but he is already slowed by a strained hamstring.
    TV: 4:10 p.m. ET, RSN (Toronto), SunSports (Tampa Bay)
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Blue Jays RH R.A. Dickey (2013: 14-13, 4.21 ERA) vs. Rays LH David Price (2013: 10-8, 3.33)
    Dickey looks to start his second season with the Blue Jays the way he ended the first when he won five of his last six decisions. The knuckleballer, who won the National League Cy Young Award with the New York Mets in 2012, has thrown at least 200 innings in three straight campaigns. Dickey is 4-3 lifetime – 3-1 in 2013 – against Tampa Bay with a 3.95 ERA over 70 2/3 innings.
    Price, who was expected to be traded in the offseason, signed for at least one more year as the leader of one of the league’s best pitching staffs. The 2012 American League Cy Young winner was outstanding after missing seven weeks with an injury early last season, going 9-4 the last three months with a 2.53 ERA. Price is 13-2 all-time against the Jays with a 2.45 ERA in 117 1/3 innings.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Toronto brought in former Rays C Dioner Navarro as a free agent in the offseason and the Rays acquired C Ryan Hanigan from Cincinnati.
    2. The Rays revamped the back of their bullpen, signing closer RHP Grant Balfour as the closer and acquiring RHP Heath Bell from Arizona.
    3. Bautista has five lifetime homers against Price and Encarnacion boasts three.


    Preview: Cardinals at Reds
    GAME: St. Louis Cardinals (0-0) at Cincinnati Reds (0-0)
    DATE/TIME: Monday, March 31 - 4:10 PM EST
    WHERE: Great American Ball Park, Cincinnati, Ohio
    LINE: -127, 117 TOTAL: 7
    The St. Louis Cardinals begin their pursuit of a second straight National League pennant when they visit the rival Cincinnati Reds and new manager Bryan Price in the opener of a three-game set Monday afternoon. Coming off a loss to the Boston Red Sox in the World Series, the Cardinals have designs on again claiming the National League Central Division, which they have won seven of the last 14 years. They lost star outfielder Carlos Beltran and standout third baseman David Freese from last year's 97-win squad, but have filled some holes with new shortstop Jhonny Peralta and center fielder Peter Bourjos.
    Price takes over for Dusty Baker for the Reds, who won the division with 97 wins in 2012 before sliding to third with a 90-72 mark and bowing out in the wild-card matchup last October. Cincinnati fans will be buzzing over the presence of speedster Billy Hamilton, who opens the season in center field after a solid spring training that saw him steal nine bases in as many attempts. Hamilton is expected to bat leadoff for a team that finished third in the National League in runs scored, two spots behind the league-leading Cardinals.

    PITCHING MATCHUP: Cardinals RH Adam Wainwright (2013: 19-9, 2.94 ERA) vs. Reds RH Johnny Cueto (2013: 5-2, 2.82)
    Wainwright has won at least 19 games in three of his last four seasons, leading the NL in victories for the second time in 2013. However, the 32-year-old had a 7.77 ERA in four starts against the Reds last year and three of his nine losses, including one at Cincinnati on Sept. 2 when he gave up six runs in six innings to pick up his last setback of the regular season. Wainwright was 2-0 with a 1.59 ERA in five starts during spring training.
    After recording 19 wins of his own in 2012, Cueto suffered through a difficult 2013 in which he made just 11 starts due to an oblique injury, but will be making his third straight Opening Day start. The righty did not face St. Louis in his limited action last year and is 4-4 with a 4.66 ERA in 15 career starts versus the Cardinals. Cueto missed one turn during spring training due to a sore back and also endured a tender shoulder.
    WALK-OFF
    1. Reds RF Jay Bruce is 11-for-28 with two home runs against Wainwright.
    2. Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong hit .375 with two home runs and five doubles in 18 games this spring entering Saturday.
    3. The teams split 10 meetings in Cincinnati last season.


    Preview: Mariners at Angels
    GAME: Seattle Mariners (0-0) at Los Angeles Angels (0-0)
    DATE/TIME: Monday, March 31 - 10:05 PM EST
    WHERE: Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Anaheim, California
    LINE: 114, -123 TOTAL: 6.5
    The Los Angeles Angels looked up star outfielder Mike Trout on the eve of the season while the Seattle Mariners are hoping the offseason signing of second baseman Robinson Cano will spruce up their attack. The teams open the season Monday when the visiting Mariners send four-time All-Star Felix Hernandez to the mound and the Angels counter with three-time All-Star Jered Weaver. Los Angeles is vying to halt a four-season playoff drought while Seattle hasn’t reached the postseason since 2001.
    The 22-year-old Trout agreed to a six-year deal worth $144.5 million after placing second in the American League MVP balloting in each of his first two full seasons. Cano bid adieu to the New York Yankees and signed a 10-year, $240 million deal as a free agent as the Mariners try to improve a lackluster offense. Seattle also has a new manager in Lloyd McClendon and a new closer in Fernando Rodney while the Angels added third baseman David Freese and are hoping first baseman Albert Pujols will stay injury-free and outfielder Josh Hamilton can rebound from a poor first season with the club.

    PITCHING MATCHUP: Mariners RH Felix Hernandez (2013: 12-10, 3.04 ERA) vs. Angels RH Jared Weaver (11-8, 3.27)
    Hernandez lost six of his last seven decisions in 2013 and didn’t throw a complete game after pitching five or more in each of the previous three seasons. The durable ace struck out more than 200 batters for the fifth straight season and made 31 starts, marking the eighth straight year he started 30 or more games. Hernandez often struggles against the Angels as he possesses an 8-13 mark and 3.95 ERA in 35 career starts.
    Weaver’s sharp drop in velocity was a concern last season and he made just 24 starts due to injuries while matching his career low in victories. He went 8-3 after the All-Star break to salvae a season in which he tossed the fewest innings (154 1/3) since his rookie season of 2006. Weaver is 13-8 with a 3.23 ERA in 27 career starts against the Mariners.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. The Opening Day start is the seventh for Hernandez, breaking Randy Johnson’s franchise record, while Weaver is making his sixth to pass the club mark set by Mike Witt.
    2. Trout is batting .395 with one homer in 38 career at-bats against Hernandez.
    3. Cano has a .400 average in 30 career at-bats against Weaver.


    Preview: Rockies at Marlins
    GAME: Colorado Rockies (0-0) at Miami Marlins (0-0)
    DATE/TIME: Monday, March 31 - 7:05 PM EST
    WHERE: Marlins Park, Miami, Florida
    LINE: 136, -148 TOTAL: 6.5
    The Miami Marlins made strides in the second half of last season with several talented young players and begin the 2014 campaign Monday with renewed optimism when they host the Colorado Rockies. Marcell Ozuna and Christian Yelich, who made impacts in their rookie years, join 24-year-old slugger Giancarlo Stanton in what could be a productive outfield for the Marlins. The Rockies hope to keep All-Stars Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki healthier this season to lead a capable offense.
    Miami added veteran bats Casey McGehee, Garrett Jones, Rafael Furcal and Jarrod Saltalamacchia to the lineup that was last in the majors in runs scored. Jose Fernandez goes from being a surprising pick for the roster as a 20-year-old last season to being the ace of the staff and the Opening Day starter for Miami. Veteran Justin Morneau makes his debut for Colorado at first base, replacing retired Todd Helton.
    TV: 7:05 p.m. ET, ESPN2, ROOT (Colorado), FSN Florida (Miami)
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Rockies LH Jorge De La Rosa (2013: 16-6, 3.49 ERA) vs. Marlins RH Jose Fernandez (2013: 12-6, 2.19)
    De La Rosa finished last season by winning his last six decisions and eight of the final nine, tying his career high with 16 victories. The 32-year-old from Mexico looks to carry over that success after his second career season with at least 30 starts. De La Rosa is 5-4 lifetime against the Marlins, but allowed three runs over 11 innings to beat them twice in two outings last season.
    The 21-year-old Fernandez was one of the most dominant pitchers in the major leagues from June 1 on last season, going 10-3 and taking National League Rookie of the Year honors. The Cuban fireballer allowed two or fewer runs in his last 11 starts overall and was 9-0 at home. Fernandez gave up two runs in 14 innings to beat Colorado in both meetings a season ago.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Colorado 3B Nolan Arenado won a gold glove as a rookie last season, making only 11 errors in 130 games.
    2. Furcal, who was slated to start at second base, begins the season on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring injury and could return as soon as Saturday.
    3. The Rockies will hand the closer’s role to 41-year-old LaTroy Hawkins, who had 13 saves and a 2.93 ERA with the New York Mets in 2013.


    Preview: Indians at Athletics
    GAME: Cleveland Indians (0-0) at Oakland Athletics (0-0)
    DATE/TIME: Monday, March 31 - 10:05 PM EST
    WHERE: O.co Coliseum, Oakland, California
    LINE: 129, -140 TOTAL: 7
    The Oakland Athletics begin their bid for a third straight American League West title Monday with an Opening Day matchup against the Cleveland Indians, who are looking to build on last season’s surprising wild card berth. Oakland’s spring training was marked by a series of costly injuries to outfielder Craig Gentry and starters Jarrod Parker and A.J. Griffin, but new acquisitions Nick Punto, Scott Kazmir, Luke Gregerson and closer Jim Johnson should help keep the Athletics in contention. The team could use bounce-back years from Yoenis Cespedes and Josh Reddick, who hit just .226 last season.
    Cleveland posted 92 wins last season and made the playoffs for the first time since 2007, and there’s reason to believe this year could be even better. The team’s bullpen should be much improved with new closer in John Axford and setup man Cody Allen combining with Josh Outman, Marc Rzepczynski, Bryan Shaw and Vinnie Pestano to form a solid unit. With catcher Yan Gomes ready for a more prominent role, cleanup hitter Carlos Santana is expected to be used extensively at third base this season.

    PITCHING MATCHUP: Indians RH Justin Masterson (2013: 14-10, 3.45 ERA) vs. Athletics RH Sonny Gray (2013: 5-3, 2.67)
    Masterson, set to make his third straight Opening Day start for the Indians, went 4-0 and recorded a 1.09 ERA with 25 strikeouts and six walks in six spring training starts covering 24 2/3 innings. The right-hander is looking to build on the momentum from last season, when he led the Indians in wins (14), strikeouts (195) and innings pitched (193). Coco Crisp is 3-for-9 with two homers against the 29-year-old, who was 1-1 with a 3.68 ERA in two starts against Oakland last season.
    Gray was named Oakland’s ninth Opening Day starter in as many years after Parker and Griffin suffered injuries during spring training. The 24-year-old right-hander is making his first career appearance against Cleveland after starting two games against Detroit in the American League Division Series last October. Gray posted a 3.48 ERA in six spring training starts, including a strong five-inning outing Wednesday against the Angels.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Oakland set an American League record and tied the major-league mark last season with its ninth straight Opening Day loss. The New York Giants (1893-1901) and Atlanta Braves (1972-80) also lost nine in a row.
    2. The Indians snapped a streak of four straight losses on Opening Day last season.
    3. Cleveland was 34-18 in one-run and extra-inning games last season.


    Preview: Giants at Diamondbacks
    GAME: San Francisco Giants (0-0) at Arizona Diamondbacks (0-2)
    DATE/TIME: Monday, March 31 - 9:40 PM EST
    WHERE: Chase Field, Phoenix, Arizona
    LINE: -120, 111 TOTAL: 8
    The San Francisco Giants won the World Series in 2010 and 2012 but failed to make the playoffs in each of the following seasons. They hope to continue the first part of that trend and begin the first step Monday when they open the season at the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Giants have one of the highest payrolls in Major League Baseball and much will ride on the performance of two 27-year-olds - catcher Buster Posey, who signed a nine-year extension last season, and corner infielder Pablo Sandoval, who’s beginning the final year of his three-year, $17.15-million contract.
    The Diamondbacks were hoping their season-opening two-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers last week in Australia would give them a head start on the competition, but instead they were swept and enter this four-game series two games back of the National League West lead. The news got worse when it was announced Tuesday that 16-game winner Patrick Corbin will need season-ending elbow surgery and it appears set-up man David Hernandez has a similar injury. Hernandez had a 2.50 ERA with 25 holds in 68 1/3 innings in 2012 before taking a step back last season and finishing with a 4.48 ERA in 62 1/3 innings.
    TV: 9:40 p.m. ET, CSN Bay Area (San Francisco), FSN Arizona
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Giants LH Madison Bumgarner (2013: 13-9, 2.77 ERA) vs. Diamondbacks RH Brandon McCarthy (2013: 5-11, 4.53)
    Bumgarner is coming off arguably his best season and has topped 200 innings in each of the last three years. He didn’t allow any runs in his first 21 Cactus League innings before he was touched for three solo home runs in the fifth inning of Wednesday’s final exhibition appearance against the Milwaukee Brewers. Bumgarner’s out-pitch remains his slider, but he has gained better command of his low-90s fastball and that’s one of the reasons many expect him to take his performance to another level in 2014.
    After a disappointing 2013 season, McCarthy had a strong spring, making his final appearance Wednesday and allowing three runs on six hits in six innings of a 14-4 win against the Chicago Cubs. He finished Cactus League play with a 2-0 mark and 2.70 ERA, striking out four batters for every one walk he issued. Arizona is hoping McCarty can at least duplicate his two seasons with the Oakland Athletics, when he combined for a 17-15 record and kept his ERA in the low-3s both seasons.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Arizona 1B Paul Goldschmidt hit .264 with the bases empty last season and .348 with men on.
    2. Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson underwent knee surgery Tuesday, but returned to the dugout Thursday.
    3. Giants RHP Tim Lincecum left his final exhibition start with a sore knee Friday night after being hit by a comebacker off the bat of Oakland's Daric Barton.


    Preview: Phillies at Rangers
    GAME: Philadelphia Phillies (0-0) at Texas Rangers (0-0)
    DATE/TIME: Monday, March 31 - 2:05 PM EST
    WHERE: Globe Life Park in Arlington, Arlington, Texas
    LINE: -104, -104 TOTAL: 8
    The Texas Rangers turned over their roster following their first non-playoff campaign since 2009, but have spent most of the spring watching injuries pick it apart. The Rangers, who open a three-game home set with the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday, traded for first baseman Prince Fielder and inked free agent left fielder Shin-Soo Choo during a busy offseason. Unfortunately, second baseman Jurickson Profar (shoulder) and catcher Geovany Soto (knee) were each lost for 10-12 weeks.
    The pitching staff was not immune either as starters Matt Harrison (back, out until mid-April), Derek Holland (knee, 60-day disabled list) and Yu Darvish (neck, day-to-day) all failed to make it out of the exhibition season unscathed. The Phillies kept their offensive nucleus together and are anticipating better health than they had in 2013 when injuries to players like Ben Revere, Chase Utley and Ryan Howard contributed greatly to their first losing season since 2002. "We have to get our veteran guys going on all cylinders. We'll sink or swim with (them)," Philadelphia general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. told MLB.com.
    TV: 2:05 p.m. ET, CSN Philadelphia (Philadelphia), FSN Southwest (Texas)
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Phillies LH Cliff Lee (2013: 14-8, 2.87 ERA) vs. Rangers RH Tanner Scheppers (2013: 6-2, 1.88)
    Lee enters his fourth season with Philadelphia, but will make his first Opening Day start since joining the Phillies in 2011 after a year in which he finished second in the National League in strikeouts (222), sixth in ERA and tied for 10th in wins. Although he was saddled with a pair of losses to end the 2013 campaign, the four-time All-Star ended last season by not allowing more than two earned runs in any of his final eight starts. Lee is 7-3 with a 4.91 ERA in 11 all-time starts against the Rangers.
    With the Rangers choosing to give Darvish a few extra days to recover, Scheppers will draw his first career start after making 115 relief appearances -- including 76 last season. The 27-year-old was solid during exhibition play, going 1-1 with a 3.07 ERA and 1.02 WHIP while sporting a 14:4 strikeout-to-walk ratio in four appearances (three starts). He has never faced the Phillies, but has been considerably worse at home (3.65 ERA) than he has been on the road (1.33).
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Scheppers will be the first pitcher to make his first major-league start on Opening Day since Fernando Valenzuela with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1981.
    2. Philadelphia ranked 13th in the NL with 610 runs scored, its lowest full-season total since 1998.
    3. Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg won 18 of his first 31 games after taking over for the fired Charlie Manuel on Aug. 16, but Philadelphia ended the season by dropping nine of its last 11.
