A weekly look at some of the standout players during spring training (through Wednesday):JAY BRUCE Chris Owings Jersey , SEATTLE MARINERS, OFThe slugger, traded from the Mets, is hitting .433 with four doubles and two homers in 30 at-bats. He hit .223 with nine homers last year.RONALD ACUNA, ATLANTA BRAVES, OFThe NL Rookie of Year looks like he’ll develop into one of the game’s top players . He iss batting .429 with three homers, two doubles and two stolen bases in 28 at-bats.STEPHEN STRASBURG, WASHINGTON NATIONALS, RHPThe 30-year-old is 1.69 ERA and 13 strikeouts over 10 2/3 innings. The most important concern for the three-time All-Star is staying healthy. He is 51-22 in the past four seasons, spending time on the disabled list every year.MARCUS STROMAN, TORONTO BLUE JAYS, RHPThe right-hander was selected as Toronto’s opening-day starter after striking out 13 over 12 1/3 innings with a 2.19 ERA. The 28-year-old is trying to bounce back from a rough 2018 in which he got hurt and was 4-9 with a 5.54 ERA in 19 starts. He topped 200 innings in both 2016 and 2017.HUNTER PENCE, TEXAS RANGERS, OFThe 35-year-old struggled for the San Francisco Giants last year and signed a minor league deal with Texas in February . He is hitting .400 with four doubles, three homers and four stolen bases in 11 games.GREG BIRD http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-greinke-jersey , NEW YORK YANKEES, 1BThe Bird vs. Luke Voit position battle at first base has been one of the big stories for the New York Yankees in spring training. The 26-year-old Bird is trying to win the job after struggling through three injury-filled years . He is hitting .357 with three doubles and a homer in 28 at-bats.CHRIS PADDACK, SAN DIEGO PADRES, RHPThe 23-year-old has 20 strikeouts in 12 2/3 innings. The Padres don’t have a lot of established starting pitching and Paddack, an eighth-round pick by the Miami Marlins in the 2015 amateur draft, could be an option . He has not pitched above Double-A. SAN DIEGO (AP) — Hunter Pence isn’t slowing down even though his seven-year run with the San Francisco Giants — which includes two World Series titles — is coming to an end.The 35-year-old Pence homered, doubled and drove in three runs, and rookie Chris Shaw hit a go-ahead, two-run single in the eighth inning as the Giants rallied to beat San Diego 5-4 on Tuesday night, assuring that the rebuilding Padres will finish last in the NL West.Used mostly as a pinch-hitter this year, Pence made his 41st start of the season, in right field.“I try to enjoy and give everything I have every day,” Pence said. “It’s been pretty special. It’s been an incredible trip for me being part of the Giants organization for this long, and I’ve loved every bit of it. I’m going to continue to do so until it’s officially over.”His contract expires at the end of the season.“Nice game by Hunter. Good for him,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “He has a different role and he just keeps working Curt Schilling Jersey , keeps himself ready. It’s good to see him have some success.”Pence said he’s “constantly working to get better. I’ve been working on a small adjustment and it’s starting to feel better, so I’m continuing to do that. I love to play. I love the game. It matters. It matters to all of us.”Shaw’s bases-loaded flare fell in just in front of diving left fielder Hunter Renfroe, and Nick Hundley and Brandon Crawford came racing home to give the Giants the lead. Craig Stammen (8-3) loaded the bases with no outs before getting Pence to ground into a force at home, but then gave up Shaw’s decisive hit.Pence had a big night otherwise, hitting a two-run homer in the second, his third, and adding an RBI double in the fourth to give the Giants a 3-2 lead.“It’s huge,” Giants starter Derek Holland said of Pence. “The guy brings a lot to the table. I know the fans know it. For him being here as long as he has, they’ve seen everything. He may not be playing every single day, but he’s going to bring everything he can to the table to help this team win. He’s got a great attitude. Very high competitor. I love what he does for this team. Whether he’s in the game or not, he’s going to give you everything, he’s going to be behind each guy, he’s going to help everybody, keep them motivated. I think that’s huge for a guy like him. He’s a perfect teammate. A great teammate. He definitely deserves a lot more praise than he’s getting.”Freddy Galvis had four hits and scored twice for the Padres, who dropped to 60-92 http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-greinke-jersey , one more loss than last year with 10 games to play. Ownership expected the team would improve from last season, when it finished 71-91, seven games better than San Francisco.Sam Dyson (4-3) pitched the seventh for the win. Will Smith worked the ninth to earn his 14th save, allowing Galvis’ one-out double before striking out rookie Franmil Reyes and Renfroe.Reyes gave the Padres a 4-3 lead on his two-run homer in the fifth off Holland that had to withstand a video review for potential fan interference. It was determined that a fan who went for the ball didn’t interfere with Shaw in left field. It was Reyes’ 16th and it came with pinch-hitter A.J. Ellis aboard on a leadoff walk.Reyes also hit an RBI single in the third and Renfroe had an RBI double in the first.“We’re thrilled we got Franmil,” Padres manager Andy Green said. “He looks so good. He’s become one of the success stories. Drafted by us, developed by us.“We’ve got a couple rookies this year doing extraordinary things in the National League, which you typically don’t see,” Green added. “Where he is right now, he’d be in a lot of conversations for Rookie of the Year. He’s played that well. Numbers just trending up every day. He’s had so many big hits for us. We’re definitely pleased he’s in a Padres uniform.”Holland allowed four runs and five hits in five innings. He struck out six and walked two.Padres rookie lefty Joey Lucchesi yielded three runs and seven hits in five innings. He struck out eight and walked one.“I always try to fight for my boys,” Lucchesi said.UP NEXTGiants: RHP Chris Stratton (10-9, 4.66 ERA) is scheduled to start the series finale Wednesday night. He’s coming off his first career shutout, 2-0 against Colorado.Padres: LHP Robbie Erlin (3-7, 4.27) is looking for better luck after tying his career high by losing four straight starts.
