Matt Harvey dealing for St. Lucie Mets
At this point, you have to think Harvey's days in Florida are numbered. While Harvey is making his pro debut this spring, he's also 22 and dominating. A promotion to Double-A Binghamton (N.Y.) could come before the month is out -- sooner if the weather ever warms up and dries out around here.

Ex-SCSU star Jim Fuller out for season
Josh Zeid strong for Reading
Zeid, a 10th-round pick of the Phillies out of Tulane in 2009, has been solid in five starts at Reading. He's 1-1 with a 4.35 ERA, and hasn't allowed a run in his last two starts.
Patrick McKenna making the rounds
An infielder and 27th-round draft choice of the Detroit Tigers in 2009, McKenna was signed by the San Diego Padres as a free agent. He was assigned to Triple-A Tucson (Ariz.) of the Pacific Coast League to help with injuries and spent two weeks there, batting .176 (3-for-27), before being sent down to Double-A San Antonio of the Texas League this week.
Last summer, McKenna split time between the Tigers' Gulf Coast League affiliate and Class A Lakeland of the advanced Class A Florida State League.
Seven scoreless for Max Russell
