    • Jose Molina to have knee surgery next month
      Jose Molina will undergo knee surgery next month and need 10-12 months of recovery time.

      Advice: In other words, the surgery will sideline him for the entire 2015 season. The 39-year-old veteran catcher has joined Cardinals camp as a guest instructor, but he claims he's not quite ready to retire yet. Rotoworld.com

    • Jays could trade Dioner Navarro
      Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos told Jayson Stark of ESPN that he could still trade Dioner Navarro if another team sees him as a regular catcher.

      Advice: Anthopoulos doesn't appear to be in any rush to move him, but he's clearly open to a deal if the right offer comes along. Navarro currently projects to have a part-time role with Toronto after the addition of Russell Martin. The 31-year-old hit .274/.317/.395 with 12 home runs and 69 RBI last season and could still have some appeal as a regular catcher with other clubs. Rotoworld.com

    • Jays 'status quo' with Navarro
      Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Monday that things are "status quo" with catcher Dioner Navarro.

      Advice: Navarro asked for a trade when the Blue Jays signed Russell Martin and said Monday that he's "disappointed" he hasn't been dealt, but Anthopoulos appears content with keeping him around at the moment. The 31-year-old could see part-time at-bats out of the DH spot if he begins the season with Toronto. Rotoworld.com

    • Dioner Navarro asked Blue Jays to trade him
      Dioner Navarro acknowledged Monday that he asked for a trade "right away" after the Blue Jays signed catcher Russell Martin to a five-year, $82.5 million contract.

      Advice: Navarro has reported to Blue Jays camp in Dunedin, Florida but told reporters that he is "disappointed" he hasn't been dealt and is hopeful that the Toronto front office can work something out soon. Navarro, 31, batted .274/.317/.395 with 12 home runs and 69 RBI in 139 games last season for the Jays. There should be interest out there. Rotoworld.com

    • Dodgers, Solis part ways over contract issue
      The Dodgers and Ali Solis have parted ways due to a contractual issue, according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.

      Advice: Solis is now once again a free agent. The 27-year-old appeared in eight games for the Rays last season. It's fairly late in the game for him to catch on with another club in time for spring training, but he could still find a minor league contract somewhere. Rotoworld.com

    • Cubs continuing to shop Welington Castillo
      Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that the Cubs are still actively looking to trade Welington Castillo.

      Advice: It's no secret that Castillo is being shopped, as there is no room for the 27-year-old backstop on the roster after acquiring Miguel Montero and David Ross over the offseason. Barring an injury to one of the other catchers during spring training, it's a near certainty that Castillo will be donning a new jersey come Opening Day. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Iannetta to stat between 100-115 games
      Angels manager Mike Scioscia envisions Chris Iannetta making 100-115 starts behind the plate for the Angels in 2015.

      Advice: With Hank Conger traded to the Astros over the winter, the door is open for Iannetta to seize a major opportunity. The 31-year-old backstop hasn't had more than 399 plate appearances in each of the past two seasons, but could push that number closer to 500 this year. If that's the case, expect close to 20 home runs and a tidy profit in the late rounds of fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com

    • Stephen Vogt (foot) won't catch yet
      Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Friday that Stephen Vogt (foot) won't catch at the beginning of the Cactus League schedule.

      Advice: That's been the anticipation. Vogt also will not play first base or the outfield at all during spring training as he works his way back from foot surgery. However, the A's are just being cautious here, as they fully expect him to be ready for Opening Day. Vogt is set to serve as the club's primary catcher in 2015. Rotoworld.com

    • Ramos works on strengthening hamstrings
      Wilson Ramos performed agility drills this offseason in hopes of strengthening his hamstrings.

      Advice: Ramos has dealt with a bevy of hamstring issues during his career and was given exercises by a doctor that made him zig-zag, run sideways and backwards rather than go straight ahead. He has not played 100 games since 2011 and is aiming to break that dubious streak in 2015. "This year, I feel 100 percent," he said. "I feel like I'm running without problems. When I feel 100 percent when I'm running in the field, that's when I don't have any problems behind the plate." Rotoworld.com

    • Yasmani Grandal will catch Kershaw some
      The Dodgers don't plan to make A.J. Ellis the personal catcher for Clayton Kershaw.

      Advice: Kershaw loves throwing to Ellis and likely will continue to do so most starts in 2015, but it sounds like Yasmani Grandal will also get a chance. President of baseball operations Andrew Friedman noted that Grandal is better versus righties and Ellis is better against lefties, so it has the makings of mostly a platoon situation. Rotoworld.com

    • Toronto not in trade talks involving Navarro
      According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Blue Jays are not currently engaged in active trade talks involving catcher Dioner Navarro.

      Advice: There was a report earlier this month that the Tigers were discussing Navarro with the Jays, but that quickly got shot down. The 31-year-old backstop posted a decent .274/.317/.395 batting line with 12 home runs and 69 RBI in 139 games last season, but he's obviously behind newcomer Russell Martin on Toronto's 2015 depth chart. A trade could happen at some point this spring. Rotoworld.com

    • Rosario loses arb. case against Rockies
      Wilin Rosario lost his arbitration case against the Rockies and will make $2.8 million in 2015.

      Advice: Rosario requested $3.3 million when figures were exchanged last month, but the three-person panel of arbitrators ultimately ruled in the Rockies' favor. The 25-year-old didn't have the best case after regressing to the tune of a .267/.305/.435 batting line last season while continuing to be a liability behind the plate. While he's not completely done catching, the Rockies plan to give him more time at other positions this year. Rotoworld.com

    • Decision on Rosario expected Wednesday
      The Rockies and Wilin Rosario should learn the decision of their arbitration hearing on Wednesday.

      Advice: Rosario requested a $3.3 million for 2015 and was offered $2.8 million from the Rockies when arbitration figures were exchanged last month and were unable to reach an agreement before a hearing. The three-person panel of arbitrators will pick one salary or the other. Rotoworld.com

    • Sanchez (concussion) feels 'amazing'
      Hector Sanchez (concussion) said Wednesday that he feels "amazing."

      Advice: Sanchez was shut down last August due to lingering concussion symptoms, but he has been fully cleared to catch. The 25-year-old will compete with Andrew Susac for the backup catcher job this spring. Rotoworld.com

    • Wieters (elbow) won't be limited in spring
      Orioles manager Buck Showalter said on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM on Wednesday that Matt Wieters (elbow) will not be limited in spring training.

      Advice: It's nice to hear as Wieters makes his way back from Tommy John surgery, but look for him to serve as a DH initially before getting back behind the plate. "He'll be in our lineup first intrasquad and he'll DH up until the 17th, and he will make some road trips," said Showalter. As of now, Wieters appears on track for Opening Day. Rotoworld.com
