Pitcher Trevor Cahill of the Diamondbacks was Player of the Day for Thursday's spring-training games. Pitcher Clay Buchholz of the Red Sox was American League Player of the Day. Rick Ankiel of the Astros was American League Batter of the Day (it's still difficult to think of the Astros as an AL team after so many years as an NL team). And Will Venable of the Padres was National League Batter of the Day. There were 17 spring-training games played. One game ended in a tie (Baltimore-Tampa Bay), so is not included here. And another box score with the Rangers playing against a non-Major League team, Diablos Rojos, was not available.
A couple of things to note: The Dodgers (split squad) lost a spring exhibition against a non-Major League team, the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. The Quakes' pitcher, Chris Reed, was named Player of the Game.
Also, there were two pitchers named Players of the Game, Reed and Hyun-jin Ryu of the Dodgers, who did not pick up wins or saves, but were still named Players of the Game.
