Sunday's Stars

Nick Senzel, CF, Reds. With Eugenio Suarez at third base and Scooter Gennett at second base, Senzel's best path to everyday at-bats in Cincinnati this season is in center field. So far he's been OK out there. He's shown the speed to handle the position although he does need some reps as expected to improve his reads and routes. What Senzel is also doing is hitting, which is the biggest case for him to be on the Opening Day roster. Senzel went 2-for-3 with a pair of triples. He's now hitting .462 (6-for-13).

Michael Chavis, 1B, Red Sox. Chavis has had an exceptional start to the spring. Chavis hit his fourth home run of the very young spring yesterday and now is tied with Chance Sisco for the spring training home run lead.

Meibrys Viloria, C, Royals. Viloria went from being ticketed for Double-A to having an outside chance to be the Royals' everyday catcher with the discouraging news about Salvador Perez's elbow. He went 2-for-3 yesterday with a pair of walks and is now hitting .571 (4-for-7). It's still most likely that the Royals go out and find a veteran to fill the job, but Viloria is a better hitter than the other internal candidate--Cam Gallagher.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr., 3B, Blue Jays. It's been a quiet spring so far for Guerrero, but yesterday he did line a ball off of the wall for a double while swinging with one hand.

Yusniel Diaz, RF, Orioles. It's going to be a rough year in Baltimore, but it will be a little easier if some of the Baltimore's young prospects step up. Diaz has impressed so far. He went 2-for-3 yesterday and is hitting .471 (8-for-17) so far.

Darwinzon Hernandez,  LHP, Red Sox. Hernandez struck out three in two scoreless innings yesterday. That gives the lefty six strikeouts in four innings this spring. One of the best pitching prospects in the Red Sox's system, Hernandez really took off in the second half of the season last year.

Colin Poche, LHP, Rays. Poche's invisible fastball was working yesterday. He struck out three of the four batters he faced.
