  • Seth Smith out Monday with sore ankle
    Seth Smith was scratched from the Mariners' lineup on Monday due to ongoing ankle soreness.

    Advice: Smith also missed Sunday's game, but the Mariners don't seem all that concerned. His readiness for the Mariners' season-opener is not in question at the moment.

  • Terdoslavich gets injection for sore wrist
    Joey Terdoslavich was given an injection over the weekend for his sore wrist.

    Advice: Terdoslavich injured the wrist on March 21 when he dove for a ball in a Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals. The hope is that he'll be able to return to exhibition games this week. He had been hitting well this spring in his bid for an Opening Day roster spot.

  • Indians option Tyler Holt to Triple-A level
    Indians optioned OF Tyler Holt to Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Holt was 11-for-42 (.262) with two extra-base hits in 18 games this spring in the Cactus League. He'll function as organizational outfield depth for the Tribe.
    Today, 9:33 am
  • O's reassign Arencibia to minor league camp
    Orioles reassigned C J.P. Arencibia to minor league camp.

    Advice: Arencibia is currently fighting through a flexor mass strain in his right arm. He wasn't expected to make the Orioles' Opening Day roster anyway and will presumably begin the 2015 season at Triple-A Norfolk.

    Juan Uribe (illness) is in the Dodgers' lineup Monday.

  • Seth Smith (ankle) in Cactus lineup Monday
    Seth Smith (ankle) is in the Mariners' starting lineup for Monday's Cactus League game.

    Advice: Smith was scratched from Sunday's game with a sore ankle. It's obviously not a serious injury.
    Today, 7:34 am
  • Brad Miller (stomach) back in lineup Monday
    Brad Miller (illness) is back in the Mariners' Cactus League lineup on Monday.

    Advice: Miller missed three games with a stomach virus. He'll be at shortstop for the M's on Opening Day.
    Today, 7:33 am
  • Josmil Pinto (concussion) cleared for games
    Josmil Pinto (concussion) has been cleared for games.

    Advice: Pinto was shut down for over a week with a concussion. He passed his ImPACT test on Monday morning and is expected to play in a minor league game Monday afternoon. The 25-year-old should be fine for Opening Day.
    Today, 7:22 am
  • Red Sox place C Vazquez on the 60-day DL
    Red Sox placed C Christian Vazquez on the 60-day disabled list with a right elbow injury.

    Advice: This feels like confirmation that Vazquez is going to need season-ending Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. Boston acquired catcher Sandy Leon from the Nationals on Monday morning to back up Ryan Hanigan. And top prospect Blake Swihart may be put on the fast track.
    Today, 7:06 am
  • Jaff Decker says calf is feeling 'better'
    Jaff Decker told reporters Monday morning that his left calf is "feeling a lot better."

    Advice: Decker tweaked the calf Sunday in a Grapefruit League game when his cleats got caught while he was leaving the batter's box. He had to be helped off the field, but this doesn't sound like a major injury.
    Today, 6:43 am
  • Arencibia gets cortisone for right arm
    J.P. Arencibia was given a cortisone injection Monday for his injured right arm.

    Advice: Arencibia has been diagnosed with a flexor mass strain and will remain shut down for the next several days. He is not going to be on the Orioles' active roster when the regular season opens next week.

  • Red Sox acquire C Sandy Leon from Nats
    Red Sox acquired C Sandy Leon from the Nationals for cash considerations.

    Advice: Leon was out of options and doubtful to make the Nationals' Opening Day roster. A much better opportunity awaits him in Boston, where he will serve as the backup to starting Red Sox catcher Ryan Hanigan. Christian Vazquez may be facing elbow surgery.
    Today, 5:57 am
  • Asche back in Phillies' lineup on Monday
    Cody Asche is back in the Phillies' lineup Monday.

    Advice: Asche sat out a few games with tightness in his back. He will start at third base on Opening Day.
    Today, 5:53 am
  • Marlins release veteran OF Reed Johnson
    Marlins released OF Reed Johnson.

    Advice: Johnson batted just .205/.225/.231 in 40 plate appearances this spring in the Grapefruit League. The 38-year-old was in Marlins camp on a minor league deal and never had a great shot at making the roster.

  • Tigers send Tyler Collins to Triple-A
    Tigers optioned OF Tyler Collins to Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Andrew Romine and Hernan Perez won the final two bench spots. Collins should get a look at some point.
    Today, 5:41 am
  • Tigers option Bryan Holaday to AAA Toledo
    Tigers optioned C Bryan Holaday to Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: James McCann will open the 2015 regular season as the backup to starting catcher Alex Avila.
    Today, 5:39 am
  • Juan Uribe sidelined with respiratory ailment
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Sunday that Juan Uribe was held out of action on Sunday with an upper respiratory ailment.

    Advice: Mattingly expects Uribe to be back in the lineup on Monday and doesn't expect the issue to be recurring. The 36-year-old will begin the year as the Dodgers starting third baseman, but with Alex Guerrero and Hector Olivera breathing down his neck, it's unclear how long they'll keep him at the hot corner if he comes out of the gates slowly.
    Yesterday, 5:57 pm
  • Shane Victorino struggles for Red Sox
    Shane Victorino went 0-for-3 and failed to rundown a catchable fly into shallow right Sunday against the Rays.

    Advice: Fortunately, the runner on first figured the ball would be caught, and Victorino was able to throw him out at second. Still, Victorino has been thoroughly unimpressive this spring as he attempts to rebound from an injury-filled 2014. Rusney Castillo made a terrific play in right field after replacing Victorino today and also singled and scored the winning run in the 10th. Both Castillo and Jackie Bradley Jr. have looked better than Victorino in camp, and if Victorino isn't going to show flashes of his old range, Allen Craig and Daniel Nava might be superior right field options as well.
    Yesterday, 2:38 pm
  • 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.

  • Vazquez could require Tommy John surgery
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Christian Vazquez could require Tommy John surgery after an MRI revealed damage to his right ulnar collateral ligament.

    Advice: The Red Sox haven't commented on the situation, but the fact that Vazquez is being sent to Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday for a second opinion isn't a good sign. Heyman has confirmed everyone's worst fear, as Vazquez would be knocked out for the season if an operation is required. Ryan Hanigan is perfectly capable of holding down the fort, but the Red Sox are reportedly considering keeping top prospect Blake Swihart on the roster.
    Yesterday, 12:44 pm
  • 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.
    Yesterday, 12:28 pm
  • Seth Smith scratched with ankle injury
    Seth Smith was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to a sore ankle.

    Advice: "He rolled his ankle a little bit yesterday," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "It's a little swollen. It's just precautionary. We're not going to let him play today. Seventh game of the World Series, he'd be in there." Expect Smith back out there in a day or two.
    Yesterday, 12:27 pm
  • Jaff Decker dealing with injured calf
    Jaff Decker had to depart Sunday's game against the Braves with left calf discomfort.

    Advice: Decker had to be helped off the field, suggesting that it might not be a minor tweak. The injury probably means that the outfielder will begin the season on the disabled list.
    Yesterday, 12:09 pm
  • Jaff Decker suffers left leg injury
    Jaff Decker exited Sunday's game versus the Braves with an apparent left leg injury.

    Advice: Decker injured himself while leaving the batter's box and had to be helped off the field. The 25-year-old has played well this spring as he tries to win a backup job, but the injury could obviously affect his chances.
    Yesterday, 11:34 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.
    Yesterday, 8:31 am
  • Vazquez (elbow) to be examined by Andrews
    Christian Vazquez (elbow) will receive a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday.

    Advice: Vazquez said said Saturday that the first MRI "found something" in his right elbow. The Red Sox have offered no details, which probably isn't a good sign. We should find out after Wednesday's exam how serious the ailment is.
    Yesterday, 7:07 am
  • 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.
    Saturday, 7:21 am
  • Vazquez's MRI shows 'something' in elbow
    Christian Vazquez (elbow) said Saturday that his MRI "found something" but the team will get a second opinion before making a formal diagnosis.

    Advice: That certainly doesn't sound promising for his chances of suiting up on Opening Day. Vazquez has been battling a sore right elbow for the past week or so which prompted the exam. If he is unavailable for the start of the season, Ryan Hanigan could function as the team's primary catcher.
    Saturday, 5:59 am
  • Christian Vazquez (elbow) to undergo MRI
    Christian Vazquez (elbow) will undergo an MRI Friday.

    Advice: Vazquez has been dealing with a sore right elbow for over a week and has been unable to get over the hump. He'll catch in a minor league game Friday but won't be allowed to throw to bases. At this point there's been no worry that Opening Day will be affected, but we'll have to wait and see what the MRI says.
    Friday, 6:33 am
  • 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
  • Vazquez (elbow) restricted in throwing
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said Thursday that Christian Vazquez (elbow) is still "restricted" in his throwing.

    Advice: Vazquez threw to bases Thursday, but not at full-intensity and Farrell said that he's not game-ready at this point. Still, the 24-year-old backstop is confident that he'll be ready for Opening Day.
    Thursday, 1:10 pm
  • Vazquez (elbow) expects to be ready for OD
    Christian Vazquez (elbow) expressed confidence Thursday that he will be ready for the season-opener.

    Advice: Vazquez has appeared in just one game since March 13 due to elbow soreness, but he threw to bases Thursday in Red Sox camp and felt good. Boston's young starting catcher will play in a minor league game Friday.
    Thursday, 12:15 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.

  • Asche out Thursday with back tightness
    Cody Asche has been scratched from the Phillies' lineup Thursday due to back tightness.

    Advice: Asche felt the discomfort during pre-game stretching. It doesn't sound like anything to be concerned about. The 24-year-old will open the 2015 season as the Phillies' starting third baseman, though top prospect Maikel Franco is hot on his tail. Asche could eventually move to the outfield.
    Thursday, 8:24 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
  • Vazquez (elbow) to play minors game Friday
    Christian Vazquez (elbow) is scheduled to catch in another minor league game Friday.

    Advice: Vazquez has appeared in just one Grapefruit League game since March 13 due to soreness in his throwing elbow. He said he should have a "more clear read" on his status for Opening Day by this weekend. The minor league game Friday will be a big test.
    Thursday, 6:50 am
  • Bryan Holaday hits grand slam for Tigers
    Bryan Holaday went 2-for-3 and hit a grand slam to lead the Tigers to an 8-4 win over the Marlins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Holaday entered the day 3-for-22 with no extra-base hits this spring, while James McCann, the Tigers' other backup catcher option, was at .414 with two doubles in 29 at-bats. Still, even with that disparity, there was a good chance the Tigers were leaning towards sticking with Holaday as their backup, allowing McCann to continue to play regularly in the minors. That probably is the better option than letting McCann serve as a backup, but the Tigers should also look to the waiver wire and maybe grab a backup that way (the Yankees' Austin Romine being one possibility).
    Wednesday, 2:02 pm
  • 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
  • Uribe knocks in a pair of runs as Dodgers win
    Juan Uribe went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI singles as the Dodgers topped the Diamondbacks 7-4 on Monday.

    Advice: Uribe pushed the Dodgers' lead to 3-1 with an RBI single in the fourth inning. His sixth-inning RBI single made it a 6-4 Dodgers lead. The 36-year-old has otherwise had a quiet spring, as Monday's performance drags his average up to .250 in 32 at-bats.
    Monday, 4:12 pm
  • Jaff Decker goes 2-for-3
    Jaff Decker had two hits in three at-bats Sunday, raising his spring average to .296.

    Advice: Decker has a shot at the reserve outfield job that opened up in Pittsburgh when Travis Snider was traded. With a homer, two doubles and four walks in 27 at-bats, he's sporting an .869 OPS.
    Mar 22, 1:47 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
  • Shane Victorino ditches switch hitting again
    Shane Victorino said Saturday that he's once again ditching switch-hitting and will bat only from the right side in 2015.

    Advice: He gave up hitting from the left side late in the 2013 season due to thumb and hamstring injuries, and is experiencing renewed soreness when he hits from the left side. He has been struggling from both sides of the dish in Grapefruit League play, hitting just .125 (2-for-16). If he's only hitting from the right side, he could wind up in a platoon situation should the Red Sox decide to keep both Mookie Betts and Rusney Castillo on the Opening Day roster.
    Mar 21, 8:21 am
  • Cody Asche hits second homer
    Cody Asche hit his second homer of the spring Friday against the Pirates.

    Advice: With Maikel Franco struggling, Asche appears set to have third base all to himself once the season starts. He got off to a slow start last season, but he was adequate from May onward. We're not expecting a real breakthrough this year, but... well, adequacy isn't such a bad thing.
