The scene is likely to be repeated on Thursday when the teams finish their Tokyo series. That game may also mark and end for the 45-year-old Ichiro, though no one is saying."I thought it was amazing to see the crowd come out here for him," Mariners second baseman Dee Gordon said after a 9-7 win. "This whole situation is pretty much for him and he deserves it."Ichiro provided his usual flair early, catching a ball behind his back during batting practice.Cameras flashed and chants echoed all around the park when Ichiro came to bat in the third inning.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Walker Buehler had good command of his pitches and plenty of life on his fastball in his long-awaited Cactus League debut Tuesday night.Ever the critic, though, the Los Angeles Dodgers' right-hander still found a few flaws."A little erratic, a little all over the place, but that's what these games are for," said Buehler, who consistently reached 97-98 mph against the Cleveland Indians."Spring training is to get my work in. Obviously, pitching against those guys is a good litmus test for where I'm at."He was asked if his velocity is where he wants it at this point."Close," said the 24-year-old Buehler, who finished third in 2018 NL Rookie of the Year voting. "Obviously, 45,000 in the stands helps a little bit, but we're fine."Buehler's 46-pitch appearance covered 2 2/3 innings. He allowed three hits and an earned run, striking out two without a walk."I thought Walker was where we hoped he'd be tonight," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "I thought he was amped ... [More]

HOUSTON (AP) — Alex Bregman and the Houston Astros have agreed on a $100 million, six-year deal that keeps the All-Star third baseman under contract with the team through 2024, according to a person with direct knowledge of the situation.The agreement includes this season, buys out three years of arbitration eligibility (2020-22) and pushes back Bregman's opportunity to become a free agent by two years.

Tue Mar 1921:36Padres' Paddack works minor-league game, unlikely for openerChris PaddackSPPadresFree Agent
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Chris Paddack's bid to make history as the San Diego Padres' opening day starter appears to be over.The 23-year-old right-hander has been so strong this spring that he was a candidate to become the first starting pitcher to make his major league debut on opening day since Al Gerhauser of the Phillies in 1943.But Paddack was scratched from his scheduled Cactus League start on Monday night. Instead, he pitched in a minor-league game on Tuesday against Seattle at the team's complex in Peoria. He worked 4 2/3 innings, striking out eight and allowing four runs."It wasn't his cleanest outing, but overall he looks strong and we're very pleased with what he's done all spring," Padres manager Andy Green said Tuesday night.While Green hasn't committed to an opening day pitcher yet, the maneuver appears to take Paddack out of the running. He had been working every five days during Cactus League play, and a Monday start would have led him to Saturday and then the March 2... [More]

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Carlos Gonzalez's career is laden with personal achievements — a batting title, three All-Star appearances, three Gold Gloves.He has earned the respect of teammates and opponents and the unwavering devotion of Colorado fans, who have spent the past decade cheering the outfielder known simply as "CarGo."But something is missing and Gonzalez thinks he might find it in Cleveland. The free agent signed a minor league contract on Tuesday with the Indians, who might have a starting outfield spot for him."Looking at the roster and the past of this organization, this was an easy decision," Gonzalez said. "This is a team that not too long ago was playing in a World Series. As a baseball player, I think it is everybody's dream to be at that stage, to play for a championship. I want to be in the position to be in that category. This lineup, the rotation, this bullpen is built for winning."Gonzalez could help the Indians settle their outfield situation, which became mudd... [More]

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The last time Trevor Cahill made an opening day start, he was pitching for the Oakland Athletics. Now Los Angeles Angels manager Brad Ausmus has named Cahill as the opening day starter for the March 28 game in Oakland against the A's.This is Cahill's first season with the Angels. He was 7-4 with a 3.76 ERA in 21 games (20 starts) for the Athletics last year. It will be Cahill's second opening day start — he also did so in 2011 for the Athletics."Any time you can pitch the first game of the season, it's special," Cahill said. "I think the biggest thing is, as we all know, it's one of many and not worth any more than any of the other ones. My goal is to go out there and pitch like I normally do and don't try to do too much."The rest of the Angels' rotation will be Matt Harvey, Felix Pena, Tyler Skaggs and Jaime Barria, Ausmus said."We're kind of juggling with injuries and weren't sure and ultimately, I thought Cahill was the best fit," Ausmus said.Cahill played fo...
