Wednesday's Stars

Fernando Tatis Jr., SS, Padres. Another day, another home run. Tatis hit his second home run in two days and his second in only nine spring training at-bats.

Nate Lowe, 1B, Rays. Lowe hit one of the majestic home runs we'll see all spring. Trackman estimated the home run as traveling 448 feet. Rays PR officials found the ball roughly 560 feet from home plate after it rolled to a stop.

Joey Bart, C, Giants. This is Bart's first spring training as a pro, but no one would know it from his performance so far. Bart went 2-for-3 with a double and a home run yesterday. He's now hitting .571 (4-for-7).

Christin Stewart, LF, Tigers. Stewart continued to mash with his second home run of the week.

Matt Thaiss, 1B, Angels. Thaiss is one of the hottest hitters in the early part of spring training. He went 2-for-2 with a triple and a walk on Wednesday. He's now hitting .700 (7-for-10) three doubles and two triples.

Michael Chavis, 3B, Red Sox. Chavis isn't hitting .700 like Thaiss, but he did hit his third home run in only nine at-bats.

Corey Ray, RF, Brewers. Ray hit his second home run of the spring and added a walk. He's hitting .500 (5-for-10).

Kyle Wright, RHP, Braves. In his first outing of the spring, Wright struck out three while allowing two hits in two scoreless innings.

Jesus Luzardo, LHP, Athletics. It's very early, but Luzardo so far has shown he has a pretty solid case for a spot in the Athletics rotation. Luzardo struck out three in two flawless innings.
