    Player Notes

    • Wainwright 2-3 weeks away from game action
      Adam Wainwright (abdomen) expects to make his Grapefruit League debut within the next 2-3 weeks.

      Advice: Wainwright has been diagnosed with a minor abdominal strain and has been shut down for a few days. It was the best-case scenario, though, and he should be fine for Opening Day as long as he doesn't have a setback. "The good thing is it doesn’t hurt so I can continue to throw off the mound and face hitters," Wainwright said. "I can throw live BP and just won’t field my position." Rotoworld.com

    • Santana not expected to be ready by opener
      Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Friday that Johan Santana (shoulder, Achilles) is "highly unlikely" to be ready by Opening Day.

      Advice: Santana hasn't pitched in the majors since 2012, as he missed 2013 while recovering from a second major shoulder surgery and 2014 after blowing out his Achilles. He had a minor setback with his shoulder earlier this offseason, but delaying his start to 2015 likely is just so he can build up some stamina. The Blue Jays are viewing Santana as a starter, and he could be part of the rotation at some point in April if all goes well. The lefty has an opt-out clause in his contract on April 28 and will make $2.5 million plus incentives when on the big league roster. Rotoworld.com

    • Mets leaning towards Colon on Opening Day
      Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports that the Mets are "strongly considering" Bartolo Colon for their Opening Day start against the Nationals.

      Advice: Rubin says the club has narrowed their choices to Colon and one other unnamed pitcher. The Mets have said that Matt Harvey (elbow) will start one of the first five games of the season, but it would be asking a lot to give him the ball on Opening Day in his first start in over 17 months. Reigning National League Rookie of the Year Jacob deGrom is another option, but the Mets are likely to keep his innings at least relatively in check. Colon, who will turn 42 in May, would be the oldest Opening Day starter in Mets history. Rotoworld.com

    • Chase Anderson expected to make rotation
      Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said of Chase Anderson on Thursday that "you have to strongly consider him as part of our rotation."

      Advice: Only Josh Collmenter's and Jeremy Hellickson's names are etched in stone as part of the rotation, but it sounds like we can probably at least write Anderson's name down in ink. The righty pitched pretty well for the D'Backs in 2014, posting a 4.01 ERA with 105 strikeouts across 114 1/3 innings. There are a host of players that will compete for the final two spots in the rotation, including Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa, Robbie Ray, Vidal Nuño, Trevor Cahill and Randall Delgado.

    • Alex Colome dealing with visa issue
      Alex Colome has yet to report to Rays camp due to visa issues.

      Advice: It's not clear whether the club has a timetable of when to expect him. Colome, who held a 2.66 ERA over 23 2/3 innings with the Rays last season, will compete for a spot in the rotation this spring once he arrives. Rotoworld.com
