• Sano, who suffered a strained elbow this offseason, made several nice plays at third base and had no issues throwing during Thursday's game. He went 0-for-2 at the plate with a strikeout while reaching on a throwing error by shortstop Danny Santana. Fellow top prospect Buxton went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts and a walk.
