    • 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

    • Adam Duvall belts first spring homer
      Adam Duvall singled and launched a solo homer in Tuesday's Cactus League loss to the Athletics.

      Advice: The longball came in the second innings off of left-hander Rudy Owens. Duvall, 26, didn't do much in his limited time with the Giants last season, but he's consistently displayed big power in the minors. He's hoping to earn an Opening Day bench spot. Rotoworld.com

    • Carlos Santana goes 0-for-3 in Cactus debut
      Carlos Santana went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in the Indians' loss to the Reds on Tuesday in Arizona.

      Advice: Santana got ahold of a pitch in the first inning and sent into deep right-center field, but Billy Hamilton was able to track it down. Santana will try to avoid getting off to slow start in 2015 after batting just .159/.327/.301 over his first 50 games of the 2014 regular season. He went on to register an .872 OPS between the beginning of June and end of September. Rotoworld.com

    • Pedro Alvarez homers, knocks in four runs
      Pedro Alvarez had a three-run homer and an RBI double as the Pirates held on to beat the Blue Jays 8-7 on Tuesday.

      Advice: Alvarez went opposite field off Aaron Sanchez in the first. The double also dropped down the left field line. Dalton Pompey lost that one in the sun, though since he was shading Alvarez to pull, he might not have gotten to it anyway. Since he's set to be platooned, Alvarez's fantasy upside might not quite be what it once was. Still, he's a candidate for 30 homers anyway, and he should hit for a higher average since he won't start against lefties. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Howard says he's lost 15-20 pounds
      Ryan Howard said Tuesday that he cut sugar from his diet over the winter and has lost 15-20 pounds.

      Advice: This comes a few days after Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro said that Howard showed up to camp in the best shape "since I've known him." It's no secret that the Phillies would like to move on from him, so it appears that he has used the constant speculation about his future as motivation. It might not result in better numbers at the plate, but it's something. As of now, Howard still projects to get most of the playing time at first base for the Phillies this season. Rotoworld.com

    • 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

    • Moreland (ankle) likely out for another week
      Mitch Moreland (ankle) isn't likely to play in Cactus League games for the Rangers until next week.

      Advice: Moreland will run the bases on Tuesday on his reconstructed right ankle. The 29-year-old took over at first base following Prince Fielder's injury last season before his ankle ended his season. Moreland should face plenty of right-handed pitching out of the DH slot in 2015. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:28 am
    • 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

    • V-Mart believes he'll be OK for Opening Day
      Victor Martinez (knee) is confident that he will be ready in time for Opening Day.

      Advice: Martinez is recovering from offseason meniscus surgery in his left knee, but said he should require only two weeks' worth of at-bats to get ready. The slugger led the league in OPS at .974 and in on-base percentage at .407 last season while batting .335 with 103 RBI while cranking out a career-high 32 home runs. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 5:58 am
    • Nick Swisher (knees) not close to game-ready
      Indians manager Terry Francona indicated on Monday that Nick Swisher (knees) is likely a couple weeks away from game action.

      Advice: Brandon Moss (hip) is slated to make his Grapefruit League debut in mid-March, and Francona noted that he "might be a little ahead" of Swisher. "I don't want those guys to feel like there's a deadline, because there's not," the skipper added. Swisher is coming back from surgery on both knees, and while he's been able to hit with no issues, he's not yet running at nearly 100 percent. The veteran should still have enough time to be ready for Opening Day as long as he doesn't have setbacks. Rotoworld.com

    • Victor Martinez (knee) runs, takes swings
      Victor Martinez (knee) ran on the anti-gravity treadmill and took 30 swings off a tee from both sides of the plate on Monday.

      Advice: Martinez arrived at Tigers' camp on Monday morning and didn't waste any time doing his first workout. The veteran slugger underwent surgery on February 10 to repair the medial meniscus in his left knee and will have a late start in spring training, but the Tigers are confident he'll get enough at-bats to be ready for the season.

    • 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
      Monday, 12:43 pm
    • 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
      Monday, 11:16 am
    • V-Mart (knee) arrived at Tigers camp Mon.
      Victor Martinez (knee) has arrived at Tigers camp.

      Advice: And he's expected to go through his first spring workout Monday morning. Martinez needed surgery on February 10 to repair the medial meniscus in his left knee and probably won't get into Grapefruit League games for at least two weeks. The veteran designated hitter is not certain to be ready for the opening of the 2015 regular season, though the Tigers are saying for now that he will be a go. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 5:59 am
    • 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
    • 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
      Saturday, 6:43 am
    • Ryan Howard comes to camp in good shape
      Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro said Friday that Ryan Howard showed up to camp in the best shape "since I've known him."

      Advice: Amaro made up with Howard at the beginning of spring training after saying over the winter that the club would be better off without him, and now he's bragging about the veteran's physical condition. None of it really means much. Howard is still slated to start versus righties at first base as long as he's healthy and still with the Phillies on Opening Day. He remains capable of providing some home run pop but doesn't offer much else. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 1:23 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
      Thursday, 10:09 am
    • 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
    • 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
      Tuesday, 6:32 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
