Jeremy Sowers, likely headed for the DL as he gets stretched back out following shoulder soreness, made his spring debut against the Reds today, allowing a pair of runs on three hits with no walks and no strikeouts in two innings. Jonny Gomes took him deep in the second. “In terms of health, I felt fine,” Sowers said. “In terms of effectiveness, I had highs and lows. But you don’t expect to come out with guns a blazin’ and painting the knees the first time out in Spring Training.” Sowers is out of Minor League options and knows he could be nearing the end of his tenure with the Tribe. The Indians will stretch him out as a starting alternative, but who knows if they’ll have a need for him in the rotation early in the year? What is Sowers expecting? “I just want to be healthy,” he said. “Whatever else happens is out of my control. If my place isn’t here but with somebody else, it’s fine. I’ve been treated very well by this organization. It’s a first-rate organization. They’ll do whatever is best for the team.” [CastroTurf]

Previewing today’s OSU/UCSB game: “I’m sure the match up zone will cause the Bucks to get off to a slow start (unless they take it inside early and often), but they have too many good ball handlers and shooters to be outdone by a zone D from the Big West Conference. This style of defense is why Diebler’s health is so critical. With Lighty and Turner a given to drive the lane, Diebler can stretch that defense will a couple of deep makes and open up the lanes even more as the game rolls along. You know he has been given top notch treatment and if he can hold his food down tomorrow, he’ll be fine.” [Eleven Warriors]

Oh, and if you haven’t heard, I’m up for a blogger award of sorts via FoxSportsOhio. My latest submission is regarding the Tim Tebow conundrum. Please take a second and go over there, “recommend” it (top left corner of post) and throw me a vote or two. Less than one week left, guys. Many thanks.
