A look around the Cactus League

With rain washing out all of the games in Florida today, ExtraBaseHit went inside the Cactus League, reviewing all the games and looking at notable stats.  With fantasy drafts already in full swing, these players noted may be on the verge of a pretty good season, or maybe, just the opposite.

LA Angels (SS) 7 Indians 7

LAA: Napoli 2-4, HR (4), 4 RBI, .412 AVG (great spring so far)

CLE: LaPorta 1-2, R, 2 RBI, .333 AVG (looks to stick with club this season)

White Sox 10 LA Angels (SS) 7

CWS: Rios 2-3, 2 R, HR (2), 2 RBI (needs a strong start to season)
CWS: Peavy 3 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 3 K (has not allowed a run yet this spring, was hit by a line-drive by Torii Hunter, but was OK and did not leave the game)

LAA: Saunders 1.2 IP, 5 H, 4 ER (bad outing to say the least)

Cubs 3 Brewers 12

CHC: Samardzija 2 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, 2 K

MIL: Edmonds 2-3, 2 R, HR (1), 2 RBI, .429 AVG (looking to make the club and is having a great spring)

Reds 3 Dodgers 2

CIN: Gomes 2-2, HR (2), 2 RBI (late signing not affecting his swing)

LAD: Kershaw 3 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 3 K (the ace had his best stuff going today)

Royals 6 Mariners 6 (yes a tie!)

KC: Guillen 2-3, R, RBI (hoping to prove to KC he can still play every day)

SEA: Griffey 2-2, 2 RBI, .286 AVG (looking young and a lot slimmer)

Athletics 1 Diamondbacks 10

OAK: Barton 3-3, .400 AVG (crowded at first and DH this year)

ARI: Kennedy 3 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 2 K (yes, this is the same player the Yankees once thought would be a keeper)

Giants 9 Rockies 2

SF: Posey 2-3, 2 RBI, .333 AVG (the prospect is once again proving that the team may of made a mistake re-signing Molina)
SF: Wellemeyer 4 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB (was tough today, made many Rockies take bad swings, a sure lock for the rotation if healthy, and he was cheap!)

COL: Mora 0-2, K, .167 AVG (played LF today?)

Padres 2 Rangers 6

SD: Richard 2 IP, 6 H, 6 ER (not a good day for the former White Sox)

TEX: Davis 3-4, 2 RBI, .550 AVG (can always hit in spring but will the .200 AVG return in the regular season?)
