Marcum has not pitched in a spring-training game since March 16. He complained of neck discomfort during a bullpen session Monday and is taking anti-inflammatory medication.


BREWERS: Infielder Yuniesky Betancourt agreed to a $900,000, one-year deal with Milwaukee, rejoining the team he helped to win the 2011 NL Central title.


PHILLIES-TIGERS: Cole Hamels had his final start of the spring for Philadelphia and pitched three scoreless innings, while Justin Verlander, who will start for Detroit in Minnesota on opening day, allowed an earned run in 52/3 innings in the Phllies' 4-1 win at Lakeland, Fla.


GIANTS-DIAMONDBACKS: Brandon Belt hit his eighth spring home run and Madison Bumgarner threw five effective innings, and San Francisco wrapped up its spring training in Arizona with an 8-6 victory over the Diamondbacks at Scottsdale.


MARINERS-DODGERS: Felix Hernandez allowed three runs in six innings in his last start of spring training, helping Seattle beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 10-7 at Peoria, Ariz.

Clayton Kershaw, also tuning up for opening day, pitched three innings, and gave up three runs and five hits. He faced only 15 batters for the Dodgers.


WHITE SOX-INDIANS: Daisuke Matsuzaka made his final Cactus League start of the spring, working 51/3 strong innings in Cleveland's 5-4 loss to Chicago at Glendale, Ariz.

Matsuzaka, who allowed two runs on five hits, will report to Triple-A Columbus when the Indians break camp. He is working his way back to the majors after undergoing Tommy John surgery last June.
