    • Blue Jays sign Viciedo to minor league deal
      Blue Jays signed OF Dayan Viciedo to a minor league contract.

      Advice: The deal will pay Viciedo $2.5 million if he makes the team out of spring. Viciedo can be a useful player against left-handed pitching, but his days as a viable everyday starting outfielder have gone. Viciedo hit 21 homers last season, so at the very least he can provide some additional pop for the Jays. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: Blue Jays agree on deal with Viciedo
      A source tells Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports that the Blue Jays and OF Dayan Viciedo have agreed on a minor league deal.

      Advice: No terms were known. Viciedo was cut loose by the White Sox but still has some value as a right-handed power hitter. The 25-year-old hit 21 homers in 523 at-bats this past season. With Michael Saunders out for a period of time to start the year, he could see time as a starter with the Jays in the early going if he breaks camp with the club. Rotoworld.com

    • CarGo (knee) to begin running bases next week
      Carlos Gonzalez (knee) will begin running the bases next week.

      Advice: CarGo is recovering from surgery to repair the patella tendon in his left knee last August. The outfielder won't be in the lineup when Cactus League games begin on Wednesday, but he doesn't appear to be too far away from game action. Assuming things go well, Gonzalez will be in the Rockies' lineup on Opening Day. Rotoworld.com

    • Tulowitzki (hip) to run bases next week
      Troy Tulowitzki (hip) will run the bases next week.

      Advice: Tulo is recovering from surgery to repair his torn left hip labrum, and the Rockies are taking it slow with their superstar as he returns to action. Tulowitzki has already been taking infield practice this spring, another good sign. Assuming his progress continues, Tulo should be ready to roll for Opening Day. Rotoworld.com

    • Matt Wieters (elbow) to catch intrasquad game
      Matt Wieters (elbow) is set to start at catcher for Sunday's intrasquad game.

      Advice: It will be the first time Wieters has been behind the dish since last May. While he'll serve as the backstop, Wieters still won't be allowed to throw at 100 percent until March 17. He's slated to catch two innings in Sunday's game. Everything is trending toward the 28-year-old being ready for Opening Day. Rotoworld.com

    • Colby Lewis to start Cactus League opener
      Colby Lewis will start the Rangers' Cactus League opener against the Royals on Wednesday.

      Advice: The 35-year-old hurler is looking to rebound from a troublesome 2014 campaign where he compiled a 5.18 ERA and 1.52 WHIP over 170 1/3 innings while losing a league-worst 14 ballgames. Yovani Gallardo, Lisalverto Bonilla and Chi Chi Gonzalez are also scheduled to pitch for the Rangers on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

    • Mike Pelfrey (elbow) throws to live hitters
      Mike Pelfrey (elbow) threw to live hitters for the first time on Saturday since undergoing elbow surgery in May.

      Advice: The veteran right-hander came away from the session feeling great and he was pleased with his overall ability to locate pitches. While he's in camp competing for a spot in the Twins' Opening Day rotation, he has indicated that he's also open to the idea of pitching out of the bullpen. Rotoworld.com

    • Kershaw to make spring debut on Thursday
      Dodgers manager Don Mattingly announced Saturday that Clayton Kershaw will make his Cactus League debut on Thursday against the White Sox.

      Advice: The reigning National League MVP and Cy Young winner is coming off an unbelievable 2014 campaign where he went 21-3 with a 1.77 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 239/31 K/BB ratio over 198 1/3 innings. He should be the first starting pitcher drafted in all fantasy formats, and one of the first names called overall. Rotoworld.com

    • Bedard to start spring opener on Wednesday
      Erik Bedard will start the Dodgers Cactus League opener against the White Sox on Wednesday.

      Advice: The veteran left-hander is on the outside looking in for a spot in the Dodgers starting rotation, so he'll attempt to earn his way onto the squad as a long reliever. He registered a troublesome 4.76 ERA and 1.49 WHIP across 75 2/3 frames with the Rays in 2014. Rotoworld.com

    • Athletics announce early rotation schedule
      Athletics manager Bob Melvin announced Saturday that Brad Mills will start Tuesday's spring opener.

      Advice: Jesse Chavez will make his first start on Wednesday while veteran southpaw Barry Zito will start on Thursday. All three hurlers are looking to compete for one of the final spots in the A's Opening Day rotation, but could also earn a spot as a long reliever. Rotoworld.com

    • Happ working to increase use of changeup
      Mariners pitching coach Rick Waits said Saturday that J.A. Happ has been working on his changeup and plans to use the pitch with a much higher frequency in 2015.

      Advice: The changeup was arguably the veteran southpaw's worst pitch last season, which could be why he only used it 9.5% of the time, down from his career usage of 12.3%. If Waits and company can improve the pitch though, and provide more deception and separation from his fastball, it could become more of a weapon for him. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Edwards (finger) throws bullpen session
      C.J. Edwards (finger) threw a successful bullpen session on Saturday.

      Advice: The top prospect had been dealing with an injury to his right index finger, but it appears to be a minor issue. Even if he impresses in Cubs camp this spring, he's likely ticketed for a return to Double-A Tennessee to begin the season. Rotoworld.com

    • Mariners likely to bat right fielder second
      Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon indicated Saturday that whoever plays right field could end up batting second in the Mariners lineup.

      Advice: The M's skipper mentioned that Seth Smith, Justin Ruggiano and Rickie Weeks were all capable of hitting in that second spot in the lineup. Smith figures to see the majority of the at-bats against right-handed pitching with Ruggiano or Weeks imposing their will against opposing southpaws. Rotoworld.com

    • Victor Martinez to arrive to camp on Monday
      Victor Martinez (knee) is scheduled to arrive to Tigers spring training camp on Monday.

      Advice: He's currently recovering from surgery earlier in the month to repair the medial meniscus in his left knee, but could still be ready for the start of the regular season. Martinez indicated that he may swing a bat and take soft toss as early as Monday. Rotoworld.com

    • Belisario is dealing with fractured shoulder
      Ronald Belisario will be shut down for the next two weeks due to a fractured left shoulder.

      Advice: Belisario sustained the injury while getting out of a pool before he arrived to Rays' camp. While it's encouraging that the injury is to his non-throwing shoulder, he isn't expected to be ready for the start of the regular season. Rotoworld.com

    • Ronald Belisario seen with left arm in sling
      Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports that Ronald Belisario was seen in the Rays clubhouse with his left arm in a sling.

      Advice: It's the veteran hurler's non-throwing arm, but could still be potentially concerning. No word yet on what any potential injury may be, but any missed time this spring could hurt the non-roster invitee's chances of cracking the bullpen on Opening Day. Rotoworld.com

    • Clay Buchholz likely to start Red Sox opener
      Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe believes that Clay Buchholz will be tabbed as the Red Sox starter on Opening Day.

      Advice: While Red Sox manager John Farrell generally waits until late in the spring to officially announce the honor, it may be telling that Buchholz will make his spring debut on Tuesday, potentially lining him up for Opening Day on April 6 against the Phillies. The veteran right-hander is the only member of the rotation who was with the team on Opening Day last season. Rotoworld.com

    • A's, Blue Jays interested in Dayan Viciedo
      FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Athletics and Blue Jays are among the teams talking to Dayan Viciedo.

      Advice: Both clubs have an opening in left field following Michael Saunders' (knee) injury, so it makes sense. Viciedo is a poor defender and has a career .298 OPS, but he's also slugged 60 homers over the last three seasons. His ideal landing spot for fantasy purposes would be in Toronto, where his power would play well at Rogers Centre. Rotoworld.com

    • Indians remain interested in Dayan Viciedo
      According to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Indians remain interested in Dayan Viciedo but only if he accepts a minor league deal.

      Advice: Viciedo was designated for assignment by the White Sox at the end of January and then given his outright release in early February. Multiple teams have come knocking since, but the 25-year-old is probably holding out for a guaranteed major league roster spot. He is a bad defensive outfielder and posted a rough .686 OPS in 2014 with the White Sox, though his power should eventually land him a spot in some team's camp. Rotoworld.com

    • V-Mart (knee) likely to report in a week
      Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Tuesday that Victor Martinez (knee) is "a week out, right around there" from reporting to spring training.

      Advice: Martinez underwent surgery earlier this month to repair the medial meniscus in his left knee and has been working out on his own away from camp. He's on pace to be ready around mid-March or slightly after, which means that he should have plenty of time to get at-bats before Opening Day. Rotoworld.com

    • V-Mart to continue workouts away from team
      Victor Martinez (knee) will continue working out on his own away from Tigers' camp when the club begins full-squad workouts next week.

      Advice: Martinez underwent surgery last week to repair the medial meniscus in his left knee. The expectation is that he'll resume full activity by around mid-March or slightly after, so he should be ready for Opening Day if there are no setbacks. 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
