LEADING OFF: King Felix tunes up, Storen ailing again

A look at what's happening around spring training in Florida and Arizona today:



Seattle ace Felix Hernandez gets ready for his opening-day start against the Angels, facing Cleveland in his final spring outing.


The Nationals will check closer Drew Storen after he ripped a blister on his right big toe during a game vs. the Cardinals. It's been a tough spring for him - earlier this month, the righty had surgery to remove part of a bone in his left hand.


The World Series champion Giants go into their game vs. Colorado with the worst record in spring training at 9-20 and one tie. San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy says the team isn't playing ''good, fundamental ball.''


Kevin Gausman, still in contention for the fifth spot in the Baltimore rotation, starts against a Tampa Bay split squad.
