Tuesday Night Open Thread

The cases for and against Tyler Wade at shortstop
Cubs return Rule 5 Draft pick Caleb Smith to Yankees

The Yankees are playing the Tigers this evening and unfortunately the game will not be televised. Blah. At least Spring Training is almost over. Masahiro Tanaka is starting tonight and he has yet to allow a run this spring through 18.2 innings. Justin Verlander is the only pitcher to throw more innings in a scoreless spring since at least 2006. He threw 20 scoreless innings in 2014. Tanaka could pass him tonight. Here is the Gameday link for tonight’s game.

Anyway, here is an open thread for the time being. I’ll post the daily camp notes following the game. MLB Network is showing spring games on tape delay all night, plus the (hockey) Rangers, Devils, and Nets are all playing. Talk about those games or anything else here.
