Welcome back to Box Score Bits, our collection of game notes from around the big leagues. Posted Monday through Friday, this blog is usually posted early in the day, with its goal being not necessarily to cover the biggest news of the previous night. For instance, Felix Hernandez might toss a two-hit shutout and fan 14 hitters in a 1-0 win, but "The King" is owned in every league. You know he's good, and his status doesn't change much by even that gem. However, perhaps the pitcher he outduels is Texas Rangers lefty Derek Holland, who nearly matches him pitch for pitch. Now that's who you'll see noted in Box Score Bits, along with injuries and changes in value. We'll keep it short and sweet, just a few notes per night.

Here are Monday's Box Score Bits from the weekend games. At this late stage, the spring training box scores can foreshadow starting lineups, platoons, etc. Soon enough we'll get the real box scores; the games begin Thursday!
