There is no room for Nick Franklin in Seattle as long as Robinson Cano is on the Mariners roster, unless Franklin learns and adjusts to a new position.

And there is no room in Atlanta's rotation for Alex Wood. The hard-throwing 23-year-old moved back to the bullpen on Friday as Atlanta went with Gavin Floyd as the fifth starter.

The names may change, but the Braves remain a franchise that relies heavily on its starting pitching rotation. Atlanta starters ranked fifth in the majors in ERA among starting pitchers last season (3.51), and GM Frank Wren made news earlier this spring by signing Julio Teheran to a long-term deal. The big question this spring is whether another young phenom can outpitch a 37-year-old veteran for the fifth spot in the rotation.
