What to watch for in today's games

Spring Training games continue today in Arizona. One perfect team remains, while two of the game's elite hurlers make their second spring starts.

Here are four things to watch for:

Royals look to remain undefeated: CWS@KC, 4:05 p.m. ET (Gameday Audio)
Any hangover from their magical 2014 certainly hasn't shown in Spring Training, as the Royals are the lone undefeated team in both the Cactus and Grapefruit Leagues after beating the Brewers, 6-5, on Monday to improve to 6-0. The Royals host the White Sox today at Surprise Stadium, with right-hander Jeremy Guthrie scheduled to make his spring debut.

Kershaw takes mound; Seager slated to start at SS: COL@LAD, 4:05 p.m. ET (MLB.TV)
Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw will make his second spring start, against the Rockies, with 20-year-old Corey Seager scheduled to start at shortstop. Manager Don Mattingly spoke glowingly of Seager -- ranked by MLB.com as the team's top prospect -- on Monday, saying Seager could handle The Show now. However, that's clearly not the plan.

Seager's walk-off double

"Talking to [team president] Andrew [Friedman], we want to give them the best chance to develop so it's not a back-and-forth thing [to the Minor Leagues]," Mattingly said. "They all like to get here quick, but you run the risk of cutting corners, and that can set a guy back."

Cueto makes second start: CIN@MIL, 4:05 p.m. ET (MLB.TV)
Some guys are must-see TV, even if it's only for two or three Spring Training innings. Like Kershaw, Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto certainly belongs in that category. The Reds ace was in midseason form in his spring debut, allowing one hit and fanning two in two scoreless innings.

Cueto on solid spring debut

"I actually worked today with location," Cueto said. "Everything I threw, I wanted to keep it down, and that's what I did today. Everything worked the way, flowed the way I wanted."

A's Gray makes spring debut: ARI@OAK, 4:05 p.m. ET (Gameday Audio)
Oakland manager Bob Melvin held out right-hander Sonny Gray and left-hander Scott Kazmir during the first week of spring games to give his two rotation anchors extra rest. Both make their Cactus League debuts this week, with Gray getting the ball today against the D-backs. Gray, the A's likely Opening Day starter, was 14-10 with a 3.08 ERA in a team-high 219 innings last season.
