• First baseman Ike Davis celebrated his 27th birthday in style on Saturday, homering against the Marlins and finishing 1-for-3 with a walk. Though Davis missed most of the Grapefruit League season with a pair of sore calves, he is batting .333 with two homers, two walks and four strikeouts in 17 plate appearances. Lucas Duda, Davis' main competition for first base playing time, is batting .300 with two home runs in 12 plate appearances.
• Catcher Travis d'Arnaud snapped an 0-for-21 funk with a second-inning homer off Marlins starter Brad Hand. He credited the hit, which boosted his spring average to .139, to a more focused approach at the plate.
"Earlier this spring, I maybe didn't even have an approach," d'Arnaud said, declining to reveal the specific adjustments that he and hitting coach Dave Hudgens made. "Now I'm just taking it day by day and trusting in the process, trusting in my swing."
