Among the hitters Lance Lynn faced in Florida as he waited to sign with another team was Logan Morrison ... and both landed with the Twins. Lynn could have pursued a longer, more lucrative deal elsewhere, but he bet on himself while giving himself a chance to win. The Twins are poised to compete for the playoffs again, and next fall, Lynn’s value in the free-agent market will no longer will dragged down by an attachment to draft-pick compensation. There was no dialogue about a possible return of Lynn to the Cardinals.

  • Spring training statistics evaporate once the season begins, but the defending-champion Astros have been getting excellent results -- the lowest team ERA by far, the most pitching strikeouts and the best won-loss record.
  • The Blue Jays are in the midst of a transition in which a lot of their position-player group is turning over -- Edwin Encarnacion left before Jose Bautista , and Josh Donaldson might be in his last year with Toronto. The club will soon be in the hands of the likes of Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette, and the folks in the front office have been thrilled by the presence and influence of Curtis Granderson , one of the game’s best professionals, in the way he conducts himself and the way he treats others.

Olson did not allow any earned runs in 20 innings for the Indians in 2017, and this spring, he has compiled 12 strikeouts and just 1 walk in 11 appearances.
  • Ten of the Giants’ first 28 games are against the Dodgers, and Madison Bumgarner might well have started three of those 10. But now, “somebody else has to put on some big-boy pants,” said one evaluator, speaking of the Giants.
  • Kenta Maeda was a revelation for the Dodgers in the postseason, with his velocity clocking higher. This spring, he has reverted to his old stuff so far; it will be interesting to see if he applies some of that bullpen aggressiveness to his work as a starter.
  • Baseball Tonight podcast Friday : Twins second baseman Brian Dozier discusses the development of teammate Byron Buxton , Minnesota’s offseason moves and the value of a team meeting in the midst of last year’s pennant race; Karl Ravech, on the idea of Bryce Harper and/or Aaron Judge hitting leadoff; Logan Morrison, mic’d up in an exhibition game.
