Here's what to watch for throughout the day (all times ET):
Fall Classic rematch: [email protected], 9:10 p.m., MLB.TV
The Cubs and Indians meet for the third and final time in the Cactus League season when Chicago travels to Goodyear Ballpark for a rematch of the 2016 World Series. The clubs aren't scheduled to play during the regular season.
It's the third and final Cactus League start for Lester, who has also made two starts in Minor League games this spring. Lester faced the Tribe three times in the World Series, including three innings in relief in Game 7.
Salazar is scheduled to start and pitch five innings for the Indians. Relief ace Andrew Miller is also slated to pitch, along with bullpen candidates Shawn Armstrong, Nicholas Goody and Kyle Crockett.

Martinez makes final spring start: [email protected], 6:05 p.m., MLB.TV
Martinez gets the ball for the Cardinals in his final start before his Opening Night assignment. Martinez is 2-0 and has not allowed an earned run in eight innings this spring. Third baseman Jhonny Peralta is expected to return to the lineup for the Cards after he bruised his left knee with a foul ball on Saturday.
Collin McHugh is set to make his Grapefruit League debut for the Astros. He's been behind on his throwing program this spring because of "dead arm" he experienced earlier in camp. McHugh is expected to begin the regular season on the disabled list as he builds arm strength.
