-- Carlos Beltran is finally running the bases again and play in an extended spring game next week. Lennon has the story here.

-- Jerry Manuel sees hope for reliever Ryota Igarashi. Why, you ask? Opponents have batted .526 off Igarashi since his return from the DL. Manuel says it's all about Igarashi keeping his pitches down.
