  • La Stella goes 3-for-3 against the Royals
    Tommy La Stella went 3-for-3 and scored a run in Sunday's Cactus League match-up with the Royals.

    Advice: All three hits were singles, raising his average to .333 (13-for-39). Only two of his 13 hits have gone for extra bases (a double and a triple), which is emblematic of what to expect of him during the regular season. La Stella will mostly contribute off the bench.

  • Boesch stays hot with two more hits vs. LAA
    Brennan Boesch continued to swing a hot bat on Sunday against the Angels, finishing 2-for-5 with an RBI double.

    Advice: Boesch has hit in four consecutive spring games, three of which included multiple hits. He's hitting .385 (20-for-52) with three doubles, four home runs, and 14 RBI. The Reds are almost certain to include him as a bench player on the 25-man roster when spring training ends.

  • Jimmy Paredes doubles twice
    Jimmy Paredes doubled twice Sunday in the Orioles' 4-2 win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: It'll be easier for the Orioles to carry Paredes if either David Lough or J.J. Hardy starts off on the disabled list. The switch-hitter is batting .383/.388/.681 with 12 RBI in 47 at-bats. He's out of options, and since he can hit for average and play multiple positions, he'd probably be picked up quickly if the Orioles let him go.

  • J.P. Arencibia scratched again on Sunday
    J.P. Arencibia was scratched from Sunday's game due to a flexor mass strain.

    Advice: The injury has kept the veteran backstop out of action since Thursday. At this point, it's very unlikely that he'll be ready for the start of the season, and probably wasn't going to crack the Orioles' Opening Day roster even if he had been completely healthy.

  • Mesoraco leaves game with cramp in quad
    Devin Mesoraco left Sunday's game against the Angels with a cramp in his left quad.

    Advice: Mesoraco pulled up while rounding third base on a double by teammate Brennan Boesch. It doesn't sound like the injury is serious, but should sideline the young backstop for a couple of days. If it's indeed just a cramp, it's possible he'll be OK for Opening Day.

  • Lucas Duda goes 3-for-4
    Lucas Duda went 3-for-4 with a couple of RBI against the Cardinals on Sunday.

    Advice: A nice day for Duda, starting against a lefty. John Mayberry Jr. will almost certainly outproduce Duda versus southpaws this season, but the Mets will go with Duda as an everyday guy anyway, at least initially. Duda has gone 5-for-8 the last two days to lift his spring average from .129 to .231.
    Today, 1:12 pm
  • Devin Mesoraco exits with apparent leg injury
    Devin Mesoraco left Sunday's game against the Angels with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Mesoraco pulled up when rounding third base on a Brennan Bosch double, suggesting he tweaked something in his lower half. The Reds should provide an update on his status shortly. Obviously, with Opening Day a week away it's not the best timing for the injury.

  • Red Sox could carry Blake Swihart on roster
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Red Sox will consider carrying Blake Swihart on the Opening Day roster if Christian Vazquez (elbow) needs Tommy John surgery.

    Advice: It had been reported previously that Swihart was under consideration for a roster spot, but Heyman is the first to reveal that Vazquez might need Tommy John surgery. The longer Vazquez would be out, the better you'd have to think the chance are at Swihart cracking the roster. Vazquez is being examined by Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday to see if he needs season-ending surgery. Swihart hit .293 with 13 home runs and 64 RBI between Double- and Triple-A last season. He'd figure to split playing time with Ryan Hanigan if on the roster.

  • Brad Miller still battling stomach bug
    Brad Miller missed a third straight game Sunday with a stomach virus.

    Advice: Miller said he was feeling better, so he should be back out there in a day or so. The 25-year-old will be the Opening Day shortstop for the Mariners.
    Today, 12:28 pm
  • Andrew Susac optioned to Triple-A
    Giants optioned C Andrew Susac to Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Susac entered camp as the favorite to back up Buster Posey, but the Giants have elected to carry Hector Sanchez instead. The 25-year-old is probably better off playing regularly in the minors, anyway.
    Today, 10:02 am
  • Steve Tolleson's X-rays are clean
    X-rays on Steve Tolleson's right hand came back negative.

    Advice: Tolleson was hit by a pitch during Saturday's game. The 31-year-old has a shot to crack the Opening Day roster as a utility player with Maicer Izturis (groin) slated to open the year on the disabled list.
    Today, 9:40 am
  • Delino DeShields Jr. expected to make roster
    Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that the Rangers "appear to be leaning" toward keeping Rule 5 pick Delino DeShields Jr. on the roster.

    Advice: DeShields is batting an underwhelming .235/.278/.382 this spring, but the Rangers like the speed he brings as an extra outfielder. The 22-year-old hasn't played above Double-A and is unlikely to see much playing time with the Rangers, but he has enough upside to justify a roster spot.
    Today, 9:31 am
  • Pinto (concussion) could play in game Mon.
    The Twins hope Josmil Pinto (concussion) will be cleared to play in a minor league game Monday.

    Advice: Pinto claims that he is no longer experiencing post-concussion symptoms, but he failed part of his concussion test on Friday. The results of a second test should be available Sunday, at which point he could be cleared for game action. The Twins hope Pinto will be ready for Opening Day, but if he's not they could potentially backdate a DL stint and he'd miss minimal time.
    Today, 8:31 am
  • David Lough (back) to return on Monday
    David Lough (back) will return to game action on Monday.

    Advice: Lough has been battling some back spasms for a few days, but he's feeling much better. He's slated to be an extra outfielder for the Orioles this season.
    Today, 8:02 am
  • Max Stassi optioned to Triple-A
    Astros optioned C Max Stassi to Triple-A Fresno; re-assigned SS Carlos Correa, LHP Darin Downs, C Tyler Heineman, RHP James Hoyt and INF Gregorio Petit to minor league camp.

    Advice: Correa is the biggest name here, but it's obviously no surprise that the top prospect didn't crack the Opening Day roster. He'll begin the season at Double-A and could possibly push to debut before the end of 2015.
    Today, 5:36 am
  • Matt Dominguez optioned to Triple-A
    Astros optioned 3B Matt Dominguez to Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: He batted just .250/.282/.250 this spring. With Luis Valbuena at the hot corner now and Colin Moran on the way, Dominguez's days as a starter in Houston are likely over.
    Today, 5:31 am
  • DeShields has two hits, steal against Padres
    Delino DeShields Jr. went 2-for-3 with a walk, stolen base and run scored in Saturday's game against the Padres.

    Advice: DeShields doubled to lead off the game, scoring on a Prince Fielder single. Showing off his blazing speed, the outfielder also stole a base on a pitchout. He's hitting just .235 but has enough speed upside that the Rangers may keep him on their 25-man roster rather than returning him to the Astros.

  • Boesch doubles, homers as Reds top the Cubs
    Brennan Boesch contributed a two-run double and a solo home run over four at-bats in Saturday's 9-5 victory over the Cubs.

    Advice: Boesch, starting in center field, doubled in the Reds' second and third runs in their four-run first inning, then added a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh to make it 9-5. Boesch has been superb for the Reds this spring, batting .383 (18-for-47) with four home runs and 13 RBI. He will very likely break camp with the Reds on the 25-man roster as part of the bench.

  • Mets, Duda have had long-term extension talks
    Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports the Mets and Lucas Duda have had discussions about a long-term contract extension.

    Advice: Duda said the talks have been "preliminary stuff and still in the works," so it doesn't sound like anything is close. Duda's agent, Dan Horwits, said the sides will table talks if a deal doesn't get done before Opening Day. Duda enjoyed a breakout year in 2014, swatting 30 homers and driving in 92 runs, and he appears to be the Mets' best answer at first base for the long run. As it stands, Duda won't be a free agent until after the 2017 season.
    Yesterday, 2:00 pm
  • Tolleson (hand) getting precautionary X-rays
    Steve Tolleson will have precautionary X-rays taken of his right hand after being hit by a pitch Saturday.

    Advice: "I'm not too worried about it," Tolleson told reporters Saturday. Indications are that it's not broken, but the Jays just want to be sure. More will be known about his injury status after the results of the test come back.
    Yesterday, 1:11 pm
  • 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.
    Yesterday, 7:21 am
  • 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.
    Friday, 9:55 pm
  • 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.

  • 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.
    Friday, 5:46 am
  • 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.
    Thursday, 4:13 pm
  • Steve Tolleson hits three-run homer
    Steve Tolleson hit a three-run homer off Ken Giles to lead the Jays past the Phillies 4-1 on Thursday.

    Advice: With Devon Travis looking probable for the second base job, it'll probably be between Tolleson and Ryan Goins for a utility gig, with Tolleson having the advantage of being out of options. Tolleson is hitting .259/.310/.556 in 27 at-bats this spring.
    Thursday, 2:33 pm
  • 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.

  • Lough (back) expects to resume activity Fri.
    David Lough (back) expects to resume activities Friday.

    Advice: Lough has been shut down for the past couple of days with back spasms. "It's a lot better than when it first happened," he said Thursday. The backup outfielder should be ready for the start of the season.
    Thursday, 8:30 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.
    Thursday, 7:23 am
  • 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.
    Wednesday, 6:40 am
  • 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.
    Tuesday, 10:09 am
  • Lough out with back spasms
    David Lough was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to back spasms.

    Advice: Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that Lough felt it after picking up a ball during tee work Tuesday morning. Consider him day-to-day.
    Tuesday, 9:52 am
  • Lough scratched from Tuesday's lineup
    David Lough was scratched from Tuesday's Grapefruit League lineup.

    Advice: No word on the reason for the change. The Orioles should pass along an update soon.
    Tuesday, 7:56 am
  • Collins: Duda won't be platooned vs. lefties
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Lucas Duda will play against lefties to start the season.

    Advice: There have been some whispers that Collins might platoon Duda after the first baseman hit .180/.264/.252 against southpaws last season, but the manager is sticking with Duda early on. Duda hit .253/.349/.481 with 30 homers and 92 RBI overall last year in a breakout season.
    Mar 22, 12:56 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.
    Mar 22, 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.
    Mar 22, 5:09 am
  • 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.
    Mar 21, 11:52 am
  • David Lough slumping this spring
    David Lough went 0-for-3 on Friday and is 4-for-24 this spring.

    Advice: Lough isn't a bad use of a bench spot for a major league team, but can the Orioles' carry a left-handed-hitting reserve outfielder when their starting corner outfielders (Alejandro De Aza and Travis Snider) are left-handed hitters? It'll certainly be a tight fit, but at the same time, it'd be hard to give up Lough's defense.
    Mar 20, 1:53 pm
  • Andrew Susac (wrist) takes swings
    Andrew Susac (wrist) took some swings on Thursday.

    Advice: Susac was given a cortisone injection to combat an impingement in his right wrist. He's hoping to be back in games early next week.
    Mar 20, 1:49 pm
  • 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.

  • 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.
