Position, player, team Spring stats (through March 25)
1 CL Jonathan Papelbon, BOS 2.31 ERA, 16 Ks, 3 BB in 11 2/3 innings

Elite talent gets rotation spot on one of best teams in baseball.
3 SS Khalil Greene, SD .426-5-16-9-0
Monster spring should portend big-time 27-year-old breakout.
4 CL Jorge Julio, FLA 5.79 ERA, 4 Ks, 1 BB in 9 1/3 innings
Opens year as Marlins closer, but he won't last full season there.
5 SP Daisuke Matsuzaka, BOS 2.84 ERA, 13 Ks, 2 BB in 12 2/3 innings
His numbers here don't include his five no-hit innings Monday.
6 3B Alex Gordon, KC .391-1-10-9-0
Phenom will be very, very good as official Royals opening 3B.
7 SP Jason Hirsh, COL 6.17 ERA, 5 Ks, 7 BB in 11 2/3 innings
Rox wisely ignore spring stats and give prospect starting job.
8 SP Zack Greinke, KC 3.32 ERA, 21 Ks, 2 BBs in 19 innings
Solid spring nets third-year SP sleeper No. 3 rotation spot.
9 1B Dmitri Young, WAS .286-1-3-3-0

This week's top decliners
Position, player, team Spring stats (through March 25)
1 SP Joel Pineiro, BOS 3.38 ERA, 6 Ks, 5 BB and 10 2/3 innings
Moving to middle relief, not starting, makes him worthless now.
2 SS Clint Barmes, COL .229-0-3-3-0 (2 CS)
Awful spring got him demoted; my how far he fell down the stairs.
3 SP Chien-Ming Wang, NYY 2.57 ERA, 7 Ks, 1 BB in 14 innings
Hamstring injury will cause him to miss first few weeks now.
4 SP Glen Perkins, MIN 4.61 ERA, 11 Ks, 6 BB in 13 2/3 innings
Entered spring with a shot, but he will start out in Triple-A.
5 OF Cliff Floyd, CHC .320-2-7-5-0
Sore heel will keep him from being regular or platoon LF.
6 SP Hayden Penn, BAL 1.80 ERA, 3 Ks, 7 BB in 10 innings
Walks force him to bide time in Triple-A to start season.
7 SP Gavin Floyd, CHW 8.44 ERA, 7 Ks, 9 BB in 16 innings
He's clearly entering stage where he can be called a bust.
8 RP Henry Owens, FLA 0.90 ERA, 9 Ks, 2 BB in 10 innings
Would have been a closer, perhaps, if not for Julio trade.
9 RP Matt Lindstrom, FLA 0.87 ERA, 4 Ks, 4 BB in 10 1/3 innings
Similarly, it wasn't performance that cost him closer job.
10 2B Jose Castillo, PIT .289-0-9-4-0
Lost 2B/3B battle to Freddy Sanchez and Jose Bautista.
