Burriss's "all-around play was very solid," Giants General Manager Brian Sabean said. "It was a unanimous opinion from all involved -- front office, coaching staff, scouts. He had a tremendous spring."

-- BREWERS: Outfielder Ryan Braun left in the second inning of last night's game against San Diego to get X-rays on his right thumb. The 2007 National League rookie of the year appears to have been injured when he misplayed a first-inning line drive to left field off the bat of the Padres' Brian Giles.

-- BRAVES: Atlanta agreed to terms with third baseman Chipper Jones on a three-year contract extension through 2012 with an option for 2013. The agreement virtually guarantees that the 36-year-old Jones will play his entire career in an Atlanta uniform.

-- TIGERS: Detroit released nine-time all-star Gary Sheffield, who is one home run away from 500 for his career. Sheffield hit .178 in 18 games this spring.

-- MARLINS: Former National Emilio Bonifacio has won the starting job at third base, and Jorge Cantú will move to first.
