Hello everyone and welcome back to a full-strength version of the Gameday.A stomach bug and some technical issues have hampered my efforts through the beginning of the week, but all systems are go now.

Before we get to the Gameday, we have a few more introductions to make. Along with the three new writers mentioned yesterday, we also saw the debut of Wayne Cavadi and his first piece on the A's/Cubs trade from last summer. We also have two more scribes making their Minor League Ball debut today - Bobby Glover and Steven A. Krawczyk. Bobby will be handling Midwest League coverage while Steven is going to take care of the International League. Please check out their first pieces and welcome them to the fold.

Click the link below for the Gameday spreadsheet, which will open in a separate tab in your browser. Scroll down for the schedule for today's slate of games, the Duel's of the Day, and our running injury list.

You can also get daily updates on draft signings by checking out my personal draft tracker. Every pick from the first five rounds are tracked as well as any picks from rounds six through ten that sign for $100K over or under the slot recommendation.
