    • Ji-Man Choi designated for assignment
      Mariners designated 1B Ji-Man Choi for assignment.

      Advice: They needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for the return of Edgar Olmos. Choi suffered a fractured right fibula on Wednesday and will be sidelined 4-6 month, so he could clear waivers. Rotoworld.com

    • Mike Olt goes deep on Thursday
      Mike Olt belted a two-run homer in Thursday's Cactus League tie against the Athletics.

      Advice: Olt took veteran left-hander Barry Zito deep in the second inning. The 26-year-old showed power for the Cubs last season, launching 12 homers over just 258 plate appearances, but he hit only .160/.248/.356 overall. He'll compete for playing time at third base until Kris Bryant is ready. Rotoworld.com

    • Cron goes 2-for-2 as Angels top the Brewers
      C.J. Cron went 2-for-2 with a double and a run scored as the Angels topped the Brewers 3-2 on Thursday.

      Advice: Cron led off the third inning with a double and later scored. The 25-year-old is coming off of minor wrist surgery. Cron figures to serve in the DH role along with Matt Joyce throughout the year. Rotoworld.com

    • Mark Trumbo doubles, scores Thursday
      Mark Trumbo doubled and scored a run in Thursday's win over the Rockies.

      Advice: Trumbo's two-bagger came in the second inning off of Jhoulys Chacin. The slugger's first season in the desert was a bust, as he was limited to just 88 games due to injury, batting .235/.293/.415 with 14 homers and 61 RBI. He remains a good fit for Chase Field, though, and is a nice bounce-back candidate for 2015. Rotoworld.com

    • Rua knocks in a pair of runs but Rangers lose
      Ryan Rua went 1-for-2 with a triple and a pair of RBI in Thursday's loss to the Royals.

      Advice: Rua tripled in the Rangers' second and third runs of the game in the third inning. The soon-to-be 25-year-old hits the ball hard and has decent power which could give him a leg up over his competition for the Rangers' job opening in left field. Rotoworld.com

    • Morales adds a pair of hits in Royals' win
      Kendrys Morales went 2-for-3 with an RBI on Thursday against the Rangers.

      Advice: Morales went 2-for-4 with a home run in Wednesday's win as well, so he's starting the spring off on the right foot. The Royals signed the slugger to take Billy Butler's place in the DH role. Morales is looking to improve on a sour 2014 campaign in which he compiled a meager .612 OPS with eight home runs.

    • Garrett Jones reaches three times
      Facing his former team, Garrett Jones went 2-for-2 with an RBI double and a walk as the Yankees edged the Pirates 2-1 on Thursday.

      Advice: Jones could well end up with 300 at-bats for the Yankees this year, but he'll be at the mercy of injuries for playing time initially. Fortunately for him, as old as the Yankees lineup is, DL stints figure to be pretty common. Rotoworld.com

    • Joey Votto (quad) nearing his Cactus debut
      Reds manager Bryan Price indicated Thursday that Joey Votto's Cactus League debut is imminent.

      Advice: "You won't have to hold your breath, I promise you, you won't have to hold your breath for this," Price said. "Just to reiterate, we just went too far into the rehab and made a commitment to do an extensive rehab to do anything before we feel he's ready. I think he's very close and he's champing at the bit to get in there." Votto missed 100 games last season because of a distal quad strain. The 31-year-old first baseman is an excellent bounceback candidate for 2015. Rotoworld.com

    • Freiman out two weeks with strained back
      Nate Freiman has been diagnosed with a strained back muscle and could be out for two weeks.

      Advice: That's not gonna help his cause for the A's Opening Day roster. Mark Canha, a Rule 5 Draft pick this past December, probably already had the edge on Freiman anyway. Rotoworld.com

    • M's Ji-Man Choi (leg) to miss 4-6 months
      Ji-Man Choi (leg) is expected to miss 4-6 months.

      Advice: Choi suffered a fractured right fibula Wednesday while trying to get to an overthrown ball at first base in a Cactus League game. He underwent surgery Thursday morning. The 23-year-old South Korean was hit with a 50-game PED suspension last season and will now miss another important chunk of potential development. Rotoworld.com

    • Miguel Cabrera (foot) running at 72 percent
      Miguel Cabrera (foot) is running at 72 percent of his body weight on an anti-gravity treadmill.

      Advice: Once he gets to 80 percent, Cabrera will be cleared to run outside and field groundballs. The veteran slugger has been hitting for weeks in Tigers camp and still has a good shot at making the Opening Day lineup. Cabrera is recovering from October surgery to remove painful bone spurs from his right ankle and repair a stress fracture in his right foot. Rotoworld.com

    • Hosmer homers, knocks in three as Royals win
      Eric Hosmer finished Wednesday's Cactus League opener 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI as the Royals skated to a 13-2 win over the Rangers.

      Advice: Hosmer, a former top prospect, has yet to fully live up to expectations despite helping the Royals advance to the World Series last season. He posted career-lows in home runs and RBI with nine and 58, respectively. The 25-year-old is due for a bounce-back year, if not a breakout campaign. Rotoworld.com

    • LaRoche notches double, 2 RBI in a win
      Adam LaRoche, in two at-bats on Wednesday, doubled in a pair of runs and scored a run.

      Advice: The White Sox are counting on LaRoche to have another productive year at the age of 35. He will have the luxury of not having to play defense as he'll serve as the club's primary DH throughout the year. LaRoche posted an .817 OPS with 26 home runs and 92 RBI last season. Rotoworld.com

    • Ji-Man Choi diagnosed with fractured fibula
      Ji-Man Choi has been diagnosed with a fractured right fibula.

      Advice: Choi suffered the injury when he tried to reach for a bad throw from shortstop Tyler Smith near the end of Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Padres. The 23-year-old first baseman will obviously be out for an extended period of time. He hit .282/.386/.403 with six home runs and 35 RBI in 74 games last season between Double-A Jackson and Triple-A Tacoma. Rotoworld.com

    • Choi carted off with apparent leg injury
      Ji-Man Choi had to be carted off the field Wednesday after suffering an apparent leg injury.

      Advice: Choi landed awkwardly after jumping for an overthrown ball at first base in the ninth inning of the Mariners' Cactus League game against the Padres. It looked like a serious injury for the 23-year-old South Korean, who hit .282/.386/.403 with six home runs and 35 RBI in 74 games last season between Double-A Jackson and Triple-A Tacoma.

    • Butler dealing with stomach bug
      Billy Butler was scratched from Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Giants due to a stomach bug.

      Advice: Hopefully he didn't have a bad country breakfast. Either way, it's not a long-term concern. He should be back in the lineup in the next day or so. Rotoworld.com

    • Cabrera (foot) takes BP on the field again
      Miguel Cabrera (foot) took batting practice on the field Wednesday for the second straight day.

      Advice: Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said that Cabrera felt really good. He still has to progress with his running program, but the Tigers couldn't ask for much more at this stage of his rehab. He still has some work to do, but Opening Day isn't unrealistic. Rotoworld.com

    • Duda (oblique) expected to swing bat Wed.
      Lucas Duda (oblique) is expected to swing a bat Wednesday.

      Advice: Duda hasn't swung a bat in three weeks due to a minor oblique strain. He received a cortisone shot to deal with the injury and he should have plenty of time to get ready for the season if there are no setbacks. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 5:30 am
    • Brandon Moss "streaking" through rehab
      Indians manager Terry Francona said that Brandon Moss (hip) has been "streaking" through his rehab.

      Advice: Moss had hip surgery in October, so it sounds like he is making good progress. He ran the bases on Monday. Francona wouldn't say whether or not to expect Moss to be ready for Opening Day, but he should at least find himself in the spring lineup by mid-March. Rotoworld.com

    • Votto won't be out of Reds' lineup for long
      Reds manager Bryan Price said Tuesday that Joey Votto (quad) won't be out of the lineup for long.

      Advice: Votto is not up to game speed, so the Reds are taking it slow with their first baseman. He missed the entirety of the second half of 2014 with a distal strain in his right quadriceps, finishing the season with an uncharacteristic .255/.390/.409 slash line. A return to health could springboard his numbers back into fantasy elite status. Rotoworld.com

    • Miguel Cabrera (foot) takes on-field BP
      Miguel Cabrera (foot) took on-field batting practice Monday for the first time this spring.

      Advice: He's been hitting without pain for a while, but this was his first true live outdoor BP since he arrived at the Tigers' spring training complex. Cabrera is also running at about 75 percent on an anti-gravity treadmill and aiming to get into Grapefruit League games around the middle of March. The Tigers are hoping he'll be fully rehabbed from his foot and ankle surgeries by the beginning of the 2015 regular season. Rotoworld.com

    • Joey Votto (quad) not yet up to game speed
      Reds manager Bryan Price said Monday that Joey Votto (quad) is not up to game speed.

      Advice: But that was by design heading into the spring, and the 31-year-old first baseman should start seeing his name in Cactus League lineups soon. "I feel really, really good," Votto told reporters Monday. "I'm surprised at how good I feel this early. I feel like I'm trending toward being able to play games here in the not too distant future." He logged only 272 plate appearances in 2014 due to a distal quad strain. The potential is there for a big-time rebound. Rotoworld.com

    • Lucas Duda to begin hitting off tee this week
      Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that Lucas Duda (oblique) is scheduled to begin hitting off a tee this week.

      Advice: If all goes well, he'll advance to taking live batting practice the following week. The 29-year-old slugger has been dealing with a minor oblique issue for the past month or so and the team being sure to be cautious in his recovery. Duda is coming off a breakout season where he slashed .253/.349/.481 with 30 homers and 92 RBI in 153 games. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 1:24 pm
    • Duda (oblique) won't swing for another week
      Lucas Duda (oblique) won't swing for another week.

      Advice: Duda was given a cortisone shot earlier this month for an oblique issue, and he's obviously still dealing with some discomfort. It's not a major concern here in late February, but the first baseman will quickly begin falling behind the other players in Mets camp if this lingers much longer. Duda posted an impressive .830 OPS with 30 home runs and 92 RBI in 153 games last season. Rotoworld.com

    • Miguel Cabrera (foot) running on treadmill
      Miguel Cabrera (foot) is running on an anti-gravity treadmill at about 65 percent of his body weight.

      Advice: He's also able to set the treadmill at a slight incline without experiencing any discomfort in his surgically-repaired right foot. Cabrera underwent a procedure last October to remove painful bone spurs from his right ankle and repair a stress fracture in his foot. He's hoping to be ready for Opening Day, but it's hard to get a clear picture at this point on whether that's realistic. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 7:46 am
    • Brandon Moss (hip) takes batting practice
      Brandon Moss (hip) took batting practice on the field Wednesday for the first time this spring.

      Advice: Moss is currently rehabbing from October hip surgery. Indians manager Terry Francona said earlier this week that he's not ready to commit to him being ready for Opening Day, but the expectation is that he could be cleared for game action by mid-March. If so, he shouldn't need many at-bats to be tuned up. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 12:33 pm
    • Lucas Duda dealing with mild oblique issue
      Lucas Duda won't swing a bat for a few days due to an oblique issue.

      Advice: Duda actually needed a cortisone shot earlier this month and hasn't swung a bat for a couple of weeks. The Mets are hoping some rest will do the trick. Duda, 29, posted an .830 OPS, 30 home runs, and 92 RBI in 153 games last season as the Mets' first baseman. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 9:44 am
    • Moss (hip) not a given for Indians' opener
      Indians manager Terry Francona on Monday wouldn't commit to Brandon Moss (hip) being ready for Opening Day.

      Advice: Moss is currently working on building up his running program as he rehabs his way back from hip surgery. He's expected to be cleared for game action by mid-March, which should give him enough time to be ready for Opening Day as long as he doesn't have any setbacks. However, his manager obviously isn't ready to commit his name to the Opening Day lineup just yet. Rotoworld.com
