Valencia, who went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and run in Thursday's Cactus League win over the Giants, is now the everyday first baseman with the demotion of Dan Vogelbach to Triple-A Tacoma, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Gamel, who hit a two-run home run in three at-bats during Thursday's 9-2 Cactus League victory over the Giants, could be closing in on a roster spot due to his stellar spring play, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "I wouldn't rule it out by any means," manager Scott Servais said. "Ben has had a good spring. I like how he plays."
Zych (biceps) recorded a perfect inning while facing Rangers minor leaguers Thursday, his first in-game action since October surgery for a biceps tendon transfer, Bob Dutton of The News Tribune reports.
Vincent, who's given up five home runs in 5.2 innings this spring, retains the confidence of manager Scott Servais, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "I'm anxious to get him out of this environment. It's tough for him and how he pitches. He pitches up in the zone and is a flyball pitcher. It hasn't worked out so great for him this spring. But he's healthy, he feels fine."
