  • Hang Conger homers for Astros
    Hank Conger homered for the Astros' lone run Saturday in a 1-1 tie versus the Marlins.

    Advice: The homer came off Mat Latos. Conger also worked a walk. After opening the spring 2-for-21 while dealing with some wrist soreness, he's 5-for-9 with two homers in his last three games. Rotoworld.com

  • Josmil Pinto failed concussion test on Friday
    Josmil Pinto failed part of his concussion test on Friday and is scheduled to retake it again on Sunday.

    Advice: Pinto claims that he is no longer experiencing post-concussion symptoms, but the team isn't quite ready to clear him just yet. As long as he's cleared on Sunday, he should be ready in time for the start of the regular season. Rotoworld.com

  • Vazquez's MRI shows 'something' in elbow
    Christian Vazquez (elbow) said Saturday that his MRI "found something" but the team will get a second opinion before making a formal diagnosis.

    Advice: That certainly doesn't sound promising for his chances of suiting up on Opening Day. Vazquez has been battling a sore right elbow for the past week or so which prompted the exam. If he is unavailable for the start of the season, Ryan Hanigan could function as the team's primary catcher. Rotoworld.com

  • Lucroy smashes third homer as Brewers roll
    Jonathan Lucroy smashed his third Cactus League home run as the Brewers rolled over the Reds 8-6 on Friday.

    Advice: The Brewers jumped on Raisel Iglesias early in this one, with Scooter Gennett leading the game off with a solo homer, and Lucroy adding a two-run bomb just two hitters later. He has been on fire at the plate this spring, hitting .423 (11-for-26) with three homers and eight RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:10 pm
  • Andrew Susac homers as Giants top Dodgers
    Andrew Susac belted his first Cactus League home run as the Giants topped the Dodgers 8-4 on Friday.

    Advice: His solo blast off Yimi Garcia in the sixth inning increased the Giants advantage to 5-3. Susac also drew a walk in the contest, finishing 1-for-3 with a pair of runs scored. He has been scuffling at the dish this spring, hitting just .222 (4-for-18) with one homer and one RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:55 pm
  • Zunino draws pair of walks in loss on Friday
    Mike Zunino went 0-for-1 and drew a pair of walks as the Mariners fell to the Royals in Cactus League play on Friday.

    Advice: He was actually one of the lone bright spots for the Mariners offense in this one as they tallied just one hit against Yordano Ventura and company. The 24-year-old backstop is having a strong spring, hitting .282 (11-for-39) with four homers and eight RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:40 pm
  • Chris Gimenez has two hits in loss to A's
    Chris Gimenez went 2-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI as the Rangers fell to the Athletics in Cactus League competition.

    Advice: Gimenez plated a run with an RBI double off R.J. Alvarez in the seventh inning. In camp as a non-roster invitee, he's hitting just .167 in Cactus League play and looks unlikely to crack the Opening Day roster. Rotoworld.com

  • Swihart could make roster if Vazquez needs DL
    Red Sox catching prospect Blake Swihart could be in the mix for an Opening Day roster spot if Christian Vazquez (elbow) needs a disabled list stint.

    Advice: Swihart has already been optioned to Triple-A, but the club can always bring him back to major league camp. It seems unlikely unless Vazquez, whose MRI results will be revealed Friday, is set for an extended absence. Humberto Quintero and Luke Montz are also options to fill in behind the plate.

  • Christian Vazquez (elbow) to undergo MRI
    Christian Vazquez (elbow) will undergo an MRI Friday.

    Advice: Vazquez has been dealing with a sore right elbow for over a week and has been unable to get over the hump. He'll catch in a minor league game Friday but won't be allowed to throw to bases. At this point there's been no worry that Opening Day will be affected, but we'll have to wait and see what the MRI says. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:33 am
  • Pinto (concussion) cleared for activities
    Josmil Pinto (concussion) has been cleared to resume all baseball activities.

    Advice: It's not clear when he'll play in a Grapefruit League game again, but Pinto is apparently no longer experiencing concussion-related symptoms. He's been on the shelf for a week of action. Pinto is expected to open the season as the Twins' primary backup behind Kurt Suzuki. Rotoworld.com

  • Throwing issues pushing O'Brien off catcher
    Diamondbacks catching prospect Peter O'Brien played the outfield in a minor league game for the second straight day Thursday.

    Advice: O'Brien has had major issues this month in throwing the ball back to the pitcher, so the Diamondbacks are going to keep him away from the catcher position for the time being. "I think he's going to play some outfield (once the minor league season starts) and catching isn't out of the question, but we're still talking internally to figure out what's best for him," farm director Mike Bell said. The D'Backs were reluctant over the winter to pursue an upgrade at catcher mainly because they believed O'Brien would be ready to take over at the position in short order. Obviously, they didn't envision the 24-year-old developing a case of the yips. O'Brien was re-assigned to minor league camp earlier this week. Rotoworld.com

  • Lucroy enjoys a three-hit afternoon vs. SEA
    Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-4 with a walk, a double, and a run scored as the Brewers ran roughshod over the Mariners 15-1 on Thursday.

    Advice: Lucroy has only racked up 23 at-bats this spring due to a hamstring injury, but he's hit well when he's been in the lineup, batting .435 with a pair of doubles, a pair of homers, and six RBI. Lucroy has been among the best at his position for several years and should once again provide tremendous fantasy value. He led the league in doubles with 51 last season while hitting .301 with 13 home runs and 69 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:33 pm
  • Mesoraco homers as Reds drub the Indians
    Devin Mesoraco went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Thursday facing the Indians.

    Advice: Mesoraco hit a second-inning solo home run off of Danny Salazar, his second long ball of the spring. The catcher has been playing once every three days over the last week and a half, as he's been slowed a bit this spring since taking a foul ball off of his mask. Mesoraco should still be ready to go when the regular season begins. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:13 pm
  • Cubs make series of roster cuts
    Cubs reassigned C/OF Kyle Schwarber, OFs Albert Almora, Mike Baxter, and Adron Chambers, INF Chris Valaika, RHPs Daniel Bard, Anthony Carter, Jorge De Leon, and Gonzalez Germen, and LHP Francisley Bueno to minor league camp.

    Advice: No big surprises in this group. Schwarber, last year's No. 4 overall pick, and 2012 first-round pick Almora are the biggest names to watch here as they make their way through Chicago's prospect-rich pipeline. Rotoworld.com

  • Vazquez (elbow) restricted in throwing
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said Thursday that Christian Vazquez (elbow) is still "restricted" in his throwing.

    Advice: Vazquez threw to bases Thursday, but not at full-intensity and Farrell said that he's not game-ready at this point. Still, the 24-year-old backstop is confident that he'll be ready for Opening Day. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:10 pm
  • Vazquez (elbow) expects to be ready for OD
    Christian Vazquez (elbow) expressed confidence Thursday that he will be ready for the season-opener.

    Advice: Vazquez has appeared in just one game since March 13 due to elbow soreness, but he threw to bases Thursday in Red Sox camp and felt good. Boston's young starting catcher will play in a minor league game Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 12:15 pm
  • Padres place Federowicz on 60-day DL
    Padres placed C Tim Federowicz on the 60-day disabled list with a right knee injury.

    Advice: Federowicz could miss up to six months after completely tearing the meniscus in his right knee in early March. Wil Nieves will back up Derek Norris in San Diego. Rotoworld.com

    60-Day DL
  • Arencibia scratched with strained flexor mass
    J.P. Arencibia was scratched from a minor league game Thursday with a strained flexor mass.

    Advice: That's typically a serious injury, but the Orioles aren't putting out many details. Arencibia is in O's camp this spring on a non-guaranteed minor league contract. He presumably will not be on the Opening Day roster. Rotoworld.com

  • Wieters (elbow) to spend time in ext. spring
    Matt Wieters (elbow) will spend the first few days of the regular season at extended spring training.

    Advice: He's going to accompany the Orioles to Tropicana Park for their season-opener against the Rays on April 6, but that is only for ceremonial purposes. Wieters will be placed on the 15-day disabled list when camp breaks to give his surgically-repaired right elbow a little more time to heal. The hope is that he'll be ready to rock around April 11. Rotoworld.com

  • Bethancourt (flu) back in Braves' lineup Thu.
    Christian Bethancourt (flu) is back in the Braves' Grapefruit League lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: Bethancourt missed a week -- and lost six pounds -- due to a bad case of the flu. But he should have just enough time to get back in shape before the Braves open their regular-season schedule on April 6. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 9:08 am
  • Pinto (concussion) to hit in cage on Thursday
    Josmil Pinto (concussion) is planning to hit in a batting cage Thursday in Twins camp.

    Advice: Pinto suffered a concussion last Saturday when he was hit in the head by a backswing. He's hoping to get back into Grapefruit League action over the weekend and he should be fine for the start of the season. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 7:23 am
  • John Buck retiring from baseball at age 34
    John Buck is retiring from baseball.

    Advice: Buck spent this spring in Braves camp, but he wasn't going to crack their Opening Day roster and the 34-year-old catcher announced Thursday that he is hanging up his cleats for good. Buck batted .234/.301/.398 with 844 hits and 134 home runs in parts of 11 major league seasons. He was an American League All-Star in 2010. Rotoworld.com

  • Vazquez (elbow) to play minors game Friday
    Christian Vazquez (elbow) is scheduled to catch in another minor league game Friday.

    Advice: Vazquez has appeared in just one Grapefruit League game since March 13 due to soreness in his throwing elbow. He said he should have a "more clear read" on his status for Opening Day by this weekend. The minor league game Friday will be a big test. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 6:50 am
  • Sucre (hip) better, ready for game action
    Jesus Sucre (hip) has declared himself ready for Cactus League action.

    Advice: "I feel a lot better," Sucre said Wednesday. "I practiced yesterday and I think I'm ready to go. I still feel it a little bit, but it's OK." Sucre missed a couple games due to a small hip injury, but it's nothing that should keep him out during the regular season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:18 pm
  • Posey dealing with mild right scapula injury
    Buster Posey is dealing with a mild right scapula injury.

    Advice: Giants manager Bruce Bochy called the injury "very mild." Posey was removed a few innings early in Wednesday's game and he'll play first base Thursday to get a bit of a rest, but it doesn't sound like anything too concerning. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:04 pm
  • Norris lifts first spring homer in a loss
    Derek Norris swatted his first home run of the spring, but the Padres lost to the Dodgers 9-5 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Norris hit a two-run shot off of Sergio Santos in the fourth inning, helping bring the Padres back within 5-4 at the time. He finished 2-for-3 on the afternoon. The catcher hasn't hit much in the Cactus League after coming over from the Athletics in a December trade. He'll be counted on by the Padres on an everyday basis during the season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:55 pm
  • Bryan Holaday hits grand slam for Tigers
    Bryan Holaday went 2-for-3 and hit a grand slam to lead the Tigers to an 8-4 win over the Marlins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Holaday entered the day 3-for-22 with no extra-base hits this spring, while James McCann, the Tigers' other backup catcher option, was at .414 with two doubles in 29 at-bats. Still, even with that disparity, there was a good chance the Tigers were leaning towards sticking with Holaday as their backup, allowing McCann to continue to play regularly in the minors. That probably is the better option than letting McCann serve as a backup, but the Tigers should also look to the waiver wire and maybe grab a backup that way (the Yankees' Austin Romine being one possibility). Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:02 pm
  • White Sox option C Brantly to minors
    White Sox optioned C Rob Brantly to Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Brantly was claimed off waivers from the Marlins over the winter, but hit just .167 (3-for-18) this spring and failed to secure the backup catcher job. Still, the 25-year-old is useful catching depth to have in the organization. Rotoworld.com

  • Pinto (concussion) ready for limited activity
    Josmil Pinto (concussion) has been cleared to resume limited baseball activity.

    Advice: Pinto suffered a concussion when he was hit in the head by a backswing on Saturday, but he plans to hit in the cage Wednesday and perhaps even do some catching work. The Twins will surely keep an eye on him to see how he responds, but it sounds like he won't miss much time. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 6:40 am
  • Vogt goes 3-for-3, homers to lead Athletics
    Stephen Vogt had a monster day at the plate on Tuesday as the Athletics routed the Cubs 14-2 in Cactus League play, going 3-for-3 with his first spring home run.

    Advice: Vogt blasted a two-run homer off Edwin Jackson in the third inning and tacked on a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. The three-hit effort raised his spring average from .105 all the way to .227. He's being relied upon to function as the A's primary backstop this season and looks to be a solid value in the mid rounds of fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com

  • Wilin Rosario collects two hits, scores twice
    Wilin Rosario had a nice day at the dish on Tuesday, going 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored as the Rockies topped the White Sox 7-6 in Cactus League play.

    Advice: He also plated a run with an RBI single as part of a six-run uprising in the fifth inning. Rosario got the start behind the plate in this one, but it appears that his time there will be limited in 2015. He'll share time between there, the corner outfield and first base, leaving his playing time projections as a major wild card heading into the season. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 5:43 pm
  • Tony Sanchez doubles twice
    Tony Sanchez doubled twice Tuesday to raise is spring average to .464.

    Advice: With Chris Stewart likely DL bound to start the year, Sanchez figures to open up as Francisco Cervelli's backup. It'd just be a short-term assignment, though, even if Sanchez keeps hitting. The Pirates like Stewart's defense too much to bail on him. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 1:25 pm
  • Pinto (concussion) feeling improvement
    Twins general manager Terry Ryan said Tuesday that Josmil Pinto (concussion) is doing better.

    Advice: Pinto suffered a concussion when he was hit in the head by Adam Jones' backswing on Saturday. He has resumed riding a bike, but it's unclear when he'll be ready for baseball activities. Obviously the Twins will handle the situation with care. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:09 am
  • Padres send Hedges to minor league camp
    Padres reassigned C Austin Hedges to minor league camp.

    Advice: Tim Federowicz (knee) is out 3-6 months, but Hedges wasn't a consideration for the backup catcher job. However, he's considered one of the team's top prospects, mostly for his defense behind the plate, and isn't far off from making an impact. Rotoworld.com

  • Sucre (hip) could return Wednesday
    Jesus Sucre (hip) could return to action as soon as Wednesday.

    Advice: Sucre tweaked his hip during Sunday's Cactus League game and will miss his second straight day of action Tuesday, but it's not a long-term concern. The 26-year-old is currently competing for the Mariners' backup catcher gig. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:30 am
  • O'Brien among seven reassigned to minors camp
    Diamondbacks reassigned C Peter O'Brien, INFs Danny Worth, Nick Evans, Danny Dorn and Jamie Romak and RHPs Jake Barrett and J.C. Ramirez to minor league camp.

    Advice: O'Brien has far and away the most offensive potential of all the Diamondbacks catching options in camp, there are serious questions about his defensive ability behind the plate though. The 24-year-old slashed .271/.316/.594 with 34 homers and 74 RBI in 106 minor league games at High-A and Double-A in 2014. Rotoworld.com

  • Lucroy homers, plates four to lead Brewers
    Jonathan Lucroy homered and drove home four runs on Sunday, powering the Brewers in a 13-4 rout over the White Sox in Cactus League action.

    Advice: Lucroy took Jeff Samardzija deep in the fifth inning for a two-run shot then added a two-run single off Dan Jennings the following frame. He finished the afternoon 2-for-4 and is now hitting a robust .375/.412/.813 with a pair of homers and five RBI in Cactus League play. He looks fully healthy and ready for the regular season to begin. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 6:44 pm
  • Jesus Sucre dealing with sore right hip
    Jesus Sucre is expected to be sidelined the next few days with a sore right hip.

    Advice: It's believed the young backstop tweaked his hip during Sunday's Cactus League contest. He is in camp competing to be the primary backup behind starter Mike Zunino. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 3:52 pm
  • Pinto (concussion) to be held out 4-5 days
    Josmil Pinto will be held out of baseball activities for 4-5 days due to a concussion.

    Advice: Pinto's teammate Eduardo Escobar told reporters Pinto didn't sustain a concussion in Saturday's game, but that was obviously uninformed opinion. A CT scan came back negative, but Pinto reported feeling dizzy Saturday, Twins manager Paul Molitor said. Concussions are notoriously fickle, so it's tough to say how long Pinto may be sidelined. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:21 am
  • Pinto avoids concussion after rough day
    Josmil Pinto did not suffer a concussion as a result of being hit in the head by Adam Jones' backswing Saturday, teammate Eduardo Escobar said.

    Advice: Pinto was actually hit by Jones' backswing three times, according to St. Paul Pioneer Press reporter Mike Berardino. The backstop was evaluated for a concussion Saturday, but Escobar said his teammate is "OK" and that he's feeling better. Pinto didn't travel with the Twins for their Sunday Grapefruit League game, and the team should give a clearer picture of his status shortly. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 5:09 am
  • Derek Norris whiffs three times on Friday
    Derek Norris continued his Cactus League struggles in Friday's loss to the Royals, striking out in all three of his at-bats.

    Advice: The 26-year-old is hitting .080 (2-for-25) on the spring, with a concerning 10/2 K/BB ratio. He is being counted on to serve as the Padres primary catcher in 2015, though Wil Nieves could push for a more prominent role should Norris continue to struggle. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 12:14 pm
  • Josmil Pinto being evaluated for concussion
    Josmil Pinto is being evaluated for a concussion after being hit in the head by the backswing of Adam Jones during Friday's Grapefruit League contest.

    Advice: Pinto has already missed time this spring with a quad injury. He's expected to open the season as the primary backup behind Kurt Suzuki, though any missed time at this stage could put those plans in jeopardy. The Twins should have an update on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 11:52 am
  • Zunino blasts pair of home runs on Friday
    Mike Zunino blasted a pair of home runs on Friday as the Mariners and Rangers played to a 4-4 tie in Cactus League action.

    Advice: He took Jon Edwards deep for a solo shot in the fourth inning then added a two-run bomb off Spencer Patton in this sixth. He's having a very strong spring at the dish, slashing .348/.400/.783 with three homers and seven RBI. While he carries batting average risk, the power is legit, and should lead to Zunino being a solid value in the middle rounds of mixed league drafts. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:47 am
  • Matt Wieters expected to begin season on DL
    Orioles manager Buck Showalter confirmed Saturday that Matt Wieters (elbow) is likely to begin the season on the disabled list.

    Advice: The Orioles are tentatively targeting a return on April 11, citing this as a precautionary measure rather than a setback in his recovery. With Wieters on the shelf, Caleb Joseph will begin the season as the O's primary backstop with Steve Clevenger serving as his backup. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:58 am
  • Andrew Susac (wrist) takes swings
    Andrew Susac (wrist) took some swings on Thursday.

    Friday, 1:49 pm
  • Matt Wieters (elbow) won't play until Wed.
    Matt Wieters (elbow) will not play until Wednesday at the earliest.

    Advice: Wieters is dealing with some tendinitis in his surgically-repaired right elbow. The Orioles aren't viewing it as a setback and are still hopeful of him being ready for Opening Day, but he's not going to have much time after getting a late start. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:04 am
  • Red Sox send C Blake Swihart to minors camp
    Red Sox optioned C Blake Swihart to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Swihart made a good impression while in big league camp, batting .389/.450/.556 with a homer in 20 plate appearances while also showing good defense. The top prospect could debut at some point in 2015, though the Red Sox already have a pair of catchers they like in Christian Vazquez and Ryan Hanigan. Rotoworld.com

  • Hank Conger off to .095 start
    Hank Conger went 0-for-3 on Thursday and is 2-for-21 since returning from left wrist soreness.

    Advice: Whether it's the wrist or not, Conger is struggling mightily, with nine strikeouts in 22 plate appearances. The Astros paid quite a price to bring him in from the Angels over the winter, leading many to speculate that they'd trade Jason Castro. That didn't happen and they actually brought in another guy who can catch in Evan Gattis (though he probably won't), so Conger's role figures to be pretty limited. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:27 pm
  • X-rays come back clean on Wieters' elbow
    X-rays came back clean on Matt Wieters' right elbow.

    Advice: Wieters came down with some tendinitis in his elbow after catching Tuesday for the first time since Tommy John surgery, so the O's sent him for a X-rays as a precautionary measure. No further tests are scheduled. He's still shut down from catching for the next week, but it's good news. Still, his status for Opening Day is in question until he proves that he can catch without discomfort. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:09 pm
  • Susac (wrist) could return to action Sunday
    Andrew Susac (wrist) could return to Cactus League play on Sunday.

    Advice: Susac was given a cortisone shot earlier this week after complaining of soreness in his right wrist. He is competing with Hector Sanchez this spring for the backup job behind Giants starting catcher Buster Posey. Rotoworld.com

  • Bethancourt out Thursday due to the flu
    Christian Bethancourt was scratched from the Braves' lineup Thursday due to flu-like symptoms.

    Thursday, 8:23 am
  • Matt Wieters undergoing X-ray on right elbow
    Matt Wieters will undergo a precautionary X-ray on his right elbow Thursday.

    Advice: Wieters experienced some discomfort in the elbow Tuesday after playing catcher for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery. The hope is that it's just routine tendinitis, but the Orioles want to be sure they know exactly what they're dealing with before they allow the 28-year-old to proceed. O's manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday that Wieters probably won't be on the Opening Day roster if he's unable to start behind the plate. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 8:00 am
  • Vogt 0-for-2 with a walk in loss to Mariners
    Stephen Vogt went 0-for-2 with a walk in Wednesday's Cactus League match-up with the Mariners.

    Advice: Vogt was behind the dish again after taking Tuesday off. he had foot surgery in October and was recently cleared to catch. He is now batting .071 (1-for-14) on the spring. The A's will be relying on Vogt with Derek Norris out of the picture and expect him to be ready by Opening Day. Rotoworld.com

  • Vazquez (elbow) plays in minor league game
    Christian Vazquez (elbow) went 0-for-4 in a minor league game Wednesday.

    Advice: Vazquez is dealing with a sore right throwing elbow, but he should be back in Grapefruit League action soon. Blake Swihart isn't far off from the majors, but the 24-year-old Vazquez is expected to be the primary catcher for Boston this season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:28 am
  • Wieters shut down with elbow tendinitis
    Matt Wieters has been shut down from catching for a week due to elbow tendinitis.

    Advice: Wieters caught Tuesday for the first time since Tommy John surgery and initially said he came out of it fine, but he's dealing with some discomfort. The Orioles are going to back off him for now, but there's a chance he could DH as soon as Sunday. Opening Day hasn't been ruled out for him, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that he probably won't carry him on the roster if he's not ready to catch. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:31 am

    Matt Wieters (elbow) said he feels good after catching Tuesday for the first time this spring and will catch again Thursday.

    Advice: Wieters, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery, caught six innings in his return Tuesday. He's not ready to catch back-to-back games yet, but that should happen soon enough. All signs point to him being behind the plate on Opening Day. Rotoworld.com
