Madison Bumgarner, who threw the last pitch of the 2014 season 125 days ago for the Giants in Game 7 of an unforgettable World Series against Kansas City, is scheduled to start for the defending champs against Oakland at 3:05 p.m. ET on Tuesday in one of the first five scheduled Spring Training openers between Major League clubs.
The public unveiling of Jung Ho Kang was a popular hit. It was the only hit for Kang on Monday, as he played the first three innings of his Black team's 2-1 victory over the Gold team in an annual intrasquad game, but he nonetheless considered it a success.
In just the first 10 days of Spring Training, Vince Coleman has already begun to change the team culture, and he promises that his work will make a major difference over the course of 2015.

For all the talk to this point in Spring Training about the improved first-step quickness of Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts, the other area he's gotten quicker in is every bit as important. He is now thinking faster entering his second full season, and that could have an immeasurable impact on his defense at an all-important position.
As he has undergone multiple surgeries to remove a foot-long tumor from his spine and continued to play high school sports with titanium rods in his back, Thompson Ritter has maintained a passion for baseball that was enriched when he accepted Alex Wood's invitation to work out with the Braves during Monday's practice.

The Yankees closed out the workout portion of Spring Training with a combination intrasquad game/simulated game Monday at George M. Steinbrenner Field. A pitching machine was used instead of real pitchers and situations were created. For example, both halves of the first inning began with a runner on first.
The White Sox approached this season certainly knowing they would need contributions from more than the 12 pitchers they break camp with. So if the White Sox don't have Chris Sale at the season's outset, they are comfortable with the possible fill-in options.

Phase One of the Wrigley Field 1060 Project remains relatively on target despite a cold winter, Cubs officials said Monday afternoon during a media tour of the construction zone.
Nationals right-hander Aaron Barrett vowed to never let adversity get the best of him. He learned how to take the good with the bad by watching how players such as Adam LaRoche, Ian Desmond, Craig Stammen and Drew Storen reacted to certain situations.
Yangervis Solarte is a third baseman who also plays plenty of shortstop and second base. Clint Barmes spent parts of last season playing all four infield spots across the diamond. And Alexi Amarista has played at least five different positions in each of the past three years. Sense a trend in San Diego?
With Tuesday's Cactus League opener against the Oakland A's, the Giants will begin conducting auditions for the few vacancies in their cast. The Giants will have exactly one relief spot up for grabs, and also could have as many as two roles available for position players.
