    • King Felix to throw another BP session
      Felix Hernandez will throw another live batting practice session before making his Cactus League debut.

      Advice: Hernandez threw his first BP session of the spring on Wednesday. The Mariners' ace is completely fine, but just wants another tune-up before getting into game action. Rotoworld.com

    • Tanaka (elbow) likely to start on March 12
      Masahiro Tanaka (elbow) is likely to make his Grapefruit League debut on March 12 against the Braves.

      Advice: The Yankees have yet to make an official announcement. Tanaka made it through another bullpen session Wednesday morning -- throwing about 30 pitches in all -- and hasn't reported any issues with his elbow. The Yankees expect him to begin the season in the rotation, but he remains a very risky investment in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Richards, who is coming back from patella tendon surgery, is also slated to throw his sixth bullpen session of the spring. He's still holding out hope to be ready for Opening Day, but the Angels don't expect him to return until two or three weeks into the season. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Hernandez, who signed a minor league deal with the Astros last month, is expected to take a physical tomorrow morning in Kissimmee. He's in the mix for the fifth starter job this spring, but the Astros could decide to keep him around as a long reliever. Rotoworld.com

      Derek Holland (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Thursday.

      Advice: Holland was scratched from Thursday's intrasquad game due to discomfort in his left shoulder, but the Rangers were mostly just being cautious. Assuming that all goes well Thursday, he could pitch in a game this weekend. Rotoworld.com

      Steve Johnson (finger) will not pitch in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game.

    • King Felix to throw BP on Wednesday
      Felix Hernandez is scheduled to throw live batting practice Wednesday.

      Advice: The Mariners will decide after whether King Felix will throw another BP session or progress to live game action. Hernandez posted a fantastic 2.14 ERA with a 248/46 K/BB ratio across 236 innings last season and will likely be the second starting pitcher off the board in most mixed fantasy leagues this spring.

    • Hultzen (shoulder) close to game action
      Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Wednesday that Danny Hultzen (shoulder) should see game action by the end of the week.

      Advice: Hultzen threw 28 pitches Tuesday in his first batting practice session of the spring and came out of it feeling great. This is promising news for someone who missed all of last season following rotator cuff and labrum surgery. The 25-year-old has a lot of work to do, but he could work his way to the majors at some point later this year. Rotoworld.com

    • Paxton (forearm) to throw bullpen Friday
      James Paxton (forearm) will throw his first bullpen session of the spring on Friday.

      Advice: Paxton injured both of his forearms in an awkward fall during an agility drill in mid-February, but it was never a major concern and he's feeling better now. While he's a bit behind the other pitchers in camp, he should still have enough time to get ready for the season. The southpaw posted a 3.04 ERA with 59/29 K/BB ratio in 74 innings across 13 starts last season and makes for an interesting late-round target in mixed fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Kirkman (shoulder) to throw bullpen Wed.
      Michael Kirkman (shoulder) is scheduled to throw his first bullpen session of the spring on Wednesday.

      Advice: Good news for Kirkman, who has fallen behind the other pitchers in camp due to an impingement in the back of his left shoulder. The 28-year-old southpaw was non-tendered by the Rangers in December, but he's in camp this spring as a non-roster invitee. Rotoworld.com

      The Rangers have returned LHP Edgar Olmos to the Mariners.

      Advice: The Rangers claimed Olmos off waivers from the Mariners last week, but they are getting it reversed after he was diagnosed with a left shoulder impingement. The 24-year-old southpaw was previously designated for assignment by Seattle after the Rickie Weeks signing. Rotoworld.com

    • Tigers release Joel Hanrahan
      Tigers released RHP Joel Hanrahan.

      Advice: It's just a paper move, as Hanrahan needs another Tommy John surgery and will miss the entire 2015 season. The veteran reliever was in camp this spring as a non-roster player. Rotoworld.com

    • Matusz gets cortisone shot in shoulder
      Brian Matusz received a cortisone shot in his right (non-throwing) shoulder Monday for an AC joint strain.

      Advice: Matusz is feeling better now, but he hurt his shoulder six weeks ago while lifting weights. It's his non-throwing shoulder, so it's not a major concern. The 28-year-old southpaw had a 3.48 ERA and 53/17 K/BB ratio across 51 2/3 innings last season. Rotoworld.com

    • Alex Cobb to start Opening Day for Rays
      Alex Cobb will start Opening Day against the Orioles on April 6.

      Advice: It will be the first Opening Day start of his career. It was a logical choice, as Cobb is now the staff ace with David Price out of the picture. The 27-year-old posted a 2.87 ERA and 149/47 K/BB ratio across 166 1/3 innings last season. Rotoworld.com

    • Joel Hanrahan to have Tommy John surgery
      Joel Hanrahan will undergo a second Tommy John surgery.

      Advice: Terrible news. Hanrahan previously had Tommy John surgery in May of 2013, but hasn't been able to make it back to the majors. He visited a specialist this week after soreness in his elbow lingered and now he's headed for another surgery. The veteran reliever can now be ruled out through the early part of the 2016 season. He'll turn 34 this October. Rotoworld.com

    • Hultzen (shoulder) throws live BP
      Danny Hultzen (shoulder) felt great Tuesday after throwing 28 pitches in his first batting practice session of the spring.

      Advice: Hultzen missed all of last season while he was in rehab mode from rotator cuff and labrum surgery, but he entered spring training with no restrictions. The 2011 No. 2 overall pick has thrown 35 2/3 innings over the last two years, so the shine has worn off him as a prospect, but he'll try to get his career back on track this year. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryu (back) feels fine after bullpen session
      Hyun-Jin Ryu (back) came out of Monday's bullpen session fine.

      Advice: Ryu briefly halted his throwing program after tweaking a muscle in the middle of his back last week, but he's feeling better now. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said the next step will likely be throwing batting practice. Cactus League games should soon follow. Rotoworld.com

    • Holland could throw a bullpen on Thursday
      Derek Holland (shoulder) could throw a bullpen as soon as Thursday.

      Advice: Holland will long toss over the next few days, which will provide a better gauge of where he's at. The left-hander was a recent scratch in an intrasquad game as a result of discomfort in his left shoulder. Holland is hoping to pick up where he left off last September after a long road back from microfracture knee surgery in January. In 37 innings, the 28-year-old posted a 1.46 ERA with a 25/5 K/BB ratio. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 8:09 am
    • James Paxton to long toss on Tuesday
      James Paxton (forearm) will long toss on Tuesday and reportedly feels fantastic, according to Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times.

      Advice: Paxton, who injured his forearms in an awkward fall during an agility drill in February, is being used cautiously by the Mariners. He could throw a bullpen on Friday, which will allow the Mariners to get a better feel for where he's at. Paxton believes he has plenty of time to get ready for the regular season. The lefty impressed in 13 starts last season, posting a 3.04 ERA with a 59/29 K/BB ratio in 74 innings. Rotoworld.com

    • Michael Kirkman's shoulder still sore
      Michael Kirkman (shoulder) is not yet symptom-free and remains limited to flat-ground work.

      Advice: Kirkman is dealing with an impingement in his left shoulder. That he's able to do any throwing at all is obviously positive, but the Rangers will feel better about his status once he's able to throw from the bump again with no problems. Rotoworld.com

    • Dodgers' Ryu (back) throws bullpen session
      Hyun-Jin Ryu (back) threw a bullpen session Monday.

      Advice: Ryu was backed off his spring throwing program for a bit after tweaking a muscle in the middle of his back last week. He should be ready for Cactus League games soon and is not in danger of missing a regular-season start. The 27-year-old left-hander owns a 3.17 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 293/78 K/BB ratio in 344 major league innings. Rotoworld.com

      Derek Holland (shoulder) plans to play catch Monday.

      Advice: Holland was scratched from an appearance in an intrasquad game Sunday due to discomfort in his left shoulder, but the belief is that it's just routine spring soreness. The 28-year-old southpaw is aiming for a big bounceback 2015 after logging just 37 innings in 2014. He had microfracture knee surgery last January. Rotoworld.com

    • Paxton (forearm) ready for first 'pen session
      James Paxton (forearm) is expected to throw his first bullpen session of the spring on Tuesday.

      Advice: Paxton fell awkwardly on both of his arms during one of the first workouts of Mariners camp and has been taking it easy for the past couple of weeks. The left-hander should be 100 percent by the beginning of the 2015 regular season. He owns a shiny 2.66 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 80/36 K/BB ratio in 98 career major league innings. Rotoworld.com

    • Hanrahan (elbow) to visit specialist Tues.
      Joel Hanrahan (elbow) will visit a specialist in Texas on Tuesday.

      Advice: Hanrahan acknowledged last week that his arm hasn't felt right since he arrived at Tigers camp in mid-February. He missed the entire 2014 season and the 33-year-old right-hander can probably be ruled out for a 2015 Opening Day bullpen spot. Hanrahan underwent Tommy John elbow surgery nearly two years ago.

    • Richards (knee) expected to miss 2-3 weeks
      Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Sunday that he's expecting Garrett Richards (knee) to rejoin the rotation 2-3 weeks into the season.

      Advice: The club had previously not dismissed the possibility of Richards being ready by Opening Day, but they've now conceded that he'll begin the season on the disabled list. His recovery from patella tendon surgery is going well, though, as he's throwing bullpen sessions and will do simulated pitchers' fielding practice on Sunday. Richards is coming off a breakout 2014 campaign that included a 2.61 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 164/51 K/BB ratio over 168 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com

    • Holland has 'normal soreness' in shoulder
      Derek Holland was scratched from an appearance in Sunday's intrasquad game due to "normal spring soreness" in his left shoulder, according to Rangers general manager Jon Daniels.

      Advice: "No alarm bells," Daniels added. Holland is simply expected to throw on Monday instead, so it does appear that there's nothing to worry about here. The left-hander is a nice bounce-back candidate this season after being limited to just 37 innings in 2014 as he worked his way back from knee surgery. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryu (back) scheduled to throw bullpen Monday
      Hyun-Jin Ryu (back) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Monday.

    • Edgar Olmos nursing shoulder impingement
      Edgar Olmos will be held back from throwing due to a left shoulder impingement.

      Advice: It's not clear when Olmos, who was just claimed off waivers earlier this week, might be ready to throw again. The southpaw was already a long shot to crack the Opening Day roster. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 7:53 am
    • Tigers' Hanrahan (elbow) discouraged
      Joel Hanrahan (elbow) is discouraged about his lack of progress in his throwing program.

      Advice: Hanrahan, who is nearly two years removed from Tommy John surgery, hasn't felt right early on in camp and his throwing sessions have been put on hold. When asked what's next, the veteran reliever said, "I really don't know," so obviously the Tigers can't count on him. It's no wonder they brought back Joba Chamberlain earlier this week.

    • Richards (knee) throws 50-pitch 'pen session
      Garrett Richards (knee) tossed a successful 50-pitch bullpen session Thursday in Angels camp.

      Advice: It was his first time throwing out of the windup since he tore his left patellar tendon last August at Fenway Park. Angels pitching coach Mike Butcher watched Thursday's workout and said Richards "did well." The right-hander is still aiming to make his 2015 debut in the first week of the regular season, but mid-April seems more realistic. Rotoworld.com

    • Tanaka (elbow) throws 40-pitch 'pen session
      Masahiro Tanaka (elbow) threw a 40-pitch bullpen session Thursday morning in Yankees camp.

      Advice: Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said the ball was coming out of Tanaka's hand well and that he's pleased with the right-hander's progress since last year's diagnosis of a partially-torn elbow ligament. Tanaka has been able to avoid Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery with a successful rehab plan, but he remains a risky fantasy bet for the 2015 season. Rotoworld.com

      Hyun-Jin Ryu (back) will have another light day Thursday in Dodgers camp.

      Advice: Ryu tweaked a muscle in the middle of his back Tuesday during a fielding drill, but it's not believed to be a serious issue. An MRI taken Thursday showed no structural damage. The 27-year-old left-hander owns a terrific 3.17 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 293/78 K/BB ratio in 344 innings since joining the Dodgers from Korea. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryu out Wednesday with mid-back tightness
      Hyun-Jin Ryu is currently dealing with mid-back tightness.

      Advice: Ryu will sit out Wednesday, but he shouldn't be sidelined for long. The southpaw has enjoyed a lot of success since coming over to MLB in 2013, posting a 3.17 ERA over 56 starts, and is an underrated option in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Kirkman was shut down last week due to an impingement in the back of his left shoulder, but he's making progress. The 28-year-old southpaw was non-tendered by the Rangers in December, but he's in camp this spring as a non-roster invitee and will attempt to win a bullpen job if healthy. Rotoworld.com

      Garrett Richards (knee) said on Wednesday that he still thinks being ready for Opening Day is "very very possible."

      Advice: Richards, who is coming back from surgery to repair a torn left patellar tendon, is scheduled for his fourth bullpen session on Thursday and will go out of the windup for the first time. His arm feels fine, but he's still about 10 days away from fielding drills. It's good for Richards to have a lofty goal to work toward, but the Angels believe he likely won't be ready until two or three weeks into the season. Rotoworld.com

      Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Wednesday that Roberto Hernandez is expected in camp later this week.

      Advice: Hernandez is having visa issues in his native Dominican Republic, but the Astros believe it will be resolved soon. The veteran right-hander will be in the mix for the fifth spot in Houston's rotation this spring, but he might have to settle for a swingman role. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Richards has completed three bullpen sessions since his arrival at Angels camp in Arizona and there haven't been any issues so far.

      James Paxton was held out of workouts Monday after landing awkwardly on both of his forearms last week during an agility drill.

      Advice: The Mariners don't seem overly concerned and Paxton has plenty of time to catch back up with the other starters in camp. The 26-year-old southpaw boasts a 2.66 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 80/36 K/BB ratio in 98 career major league innings. He's a lock for a rotation spot and should carry considerable fantasy value.
