A huge storm that made its way across the state of Florida on Thursday afternoon cancelled about half of the action in the Grapefruit League, but there’s still plenty for us to talk about.

The Good

The Bad

  • Garin Cecchini, 3B, Red Sox: 0-4, 4 K. Ouch. We can analyze things all we want, but anyone who has played baseball at any kind of high level knows that sometimes these days just happen. Cecchini generally doesn’t strike out much (and last year actually walked more often), so there’s no long-term concern here. He wasn’t going to make the Red Sox roster, so it’s nothing he can’t sleep off.
  • Kris Bryant, 3B, Cubs: 0-2, 2 K. Big tree fall hard. Even though it is still a plus tool, his hit tool is the weakest part of his offensive game. He’ll be a good hitter with great power, but he could rack up some big strikeout numbers in the process. No one will care if he hits 40 home runs as a third baseman, but there will be a few days like this in the process.
  • Reymond Fuentes, OF, Padres: 0-2, 2 K. Fuentes was likely slated to return to Triple-A until Cameron Maybin went down with an injury, leaving Fuentes as the best defensive option in the organization for the Padres’ center-field needs. The bat will probably struggle if forced into action this year.
  • Chris Anderson, RHP, Dodgers: 1 1/3 IP, H, 2 R, 2 BB. The first spring training appearance for the Dodgers’ 2013 first-rounder didn’t go as he would have liked.
