  • Lamb set home Monday with stomach bug
    Jake Lamb was sent home early from Diamondbacks camp on Monday due to a stomach virus.

    Advice: It appears there is a bug going around certain clubhouses in Arizona. Lamb should be fine in a couple days. He went 2-for-2 with a two-run homer in his Cactus League debut Saturday versus the Rockies. Today, 11:09 am
  • Chisenhall scratched from lineup Monday
    Lonnie Chisenhall was scratched from the Indians' Cactus League lineup Monday due to illness.

    Advice: He should be fine after a day or two of rest. Chisenhall is expected to open the 2017 regular season with a share of the starting right field job in Cleveland. Today, 11:07 am
  • Flaherty out Monday due to arm soreness
    Ryan Flaherty is out of the Orioles' Grapefruit League lineup on Monday due to arm soreness.

    Advice: It's not believed to be serious. The versatile Flaherty should have a spot on the Baltimore bench to open the 2017 regular season. Chris Johnson is playing third base for the O's on Monday afternoon in Florida. Today, 10:02 am
  • Hanley (shoulder) won't play 1B in WBC
    Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) said he doesn't plan to play first base in the World Baseball Classic.

    Advice: He'll have to get some work in at first base at some point this spring, but Hanley is going through early-camp soreness in his right (throwing) arm and he wants to play it safe. There's even talk of Ramirez skipping the WBC altogether. The Dominican slugger will get most of his starts at DH this year for Boston. Today, 9:10 am
  • Adrian Gonzalez (elbow) nearing tee work
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Adrian Gonzalez (elbow) could resume swinging off a tee in the next few days.

    Advice: Gonzalez showed up to Dodgers camp with a case of tennis elbow and has been easing into baseball activities. He said last week that he is already pain-free, but the veteran first baseman might not appear in a Cactus League game before he has to report to duty for Team Mexico in the World Baseball Classic. Today, 8:59 am
  • Donaldson (calf) on track for start of season
    Blue Jays GM Ross Atkins reiterated Monday that Josh Donaldson (calf) is expected to be ready for Opening Day.

    Advice: Donaldson strained his right calf during the Blue Jays' first team workout of the spring, but he's been taking swings in the cage for the last few days and is apparently close to resuming full baseball activities. "We anticipate no problems at all in his recovery," Atkins told reporters Monday morning in Dunedin, Florida. Today, 8:24 am
  • Longoria (illness) scheduled for spring debut
    Evan Longoria (illness) is scheduled to play third base Tuesday and DH on Wednesday.

    Advice: These will be the first Grapefruit League games of the spring for Longoria, who came down with a high fever last week. The star third baseman should be 100 percent for Opening Day. Today, 8:17 am
  • Adrian Beltre (calf) unsure on status for WBC
    Adrian Beltre (calf) said Monday that he is unsure about his status for the World Baseball Classic.

    Advice: Beltre suffered a Grade 1 strain of his left calf shortly after arriving at Rangers camp and he still hasn't tried to run at full speed. The Dominican third baseman will have to make a decision about the first round of the WBC by Thursday. Texas' medical staff would probably prefer he remain in Arizona all spring. Today, 7:43 am
  • Hanley Ramirez dealing with sore shoulder
    Hanley Ramirez is dealing with some minor shoulder soreness.

    Advice: The soreness affects his throwing ability, which is why he has only played DH (and not first base) so far in Grapefruit League games. DH is where he will get most of his starts this year anyway, assuming all goes according to plan. Hanley holds a shiny .331/.381/.634 career batting line in that role. Today, 6:46 am
  • Wong (shoulder) making spring debut Mon.
    Kolten Wong (shoulder) is starting at second base and batting leadoff in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox.

    Advice: It will be the first live action of the spring for Wong, who's been slowed in Cardinals camp by some lingering right shoulder inflammation. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny insisted to reporters Sunday that the shoulder discomfort is not a big concern, but we'll continue to monitor the situation closely. Wong has dealt with shoulder problems before. Today, 6:22 am
  • Garrett Stubbs out with shoulder discomfort
    Astros prospect Garrett Stubs is being held out of Grapefruit League action due to discomfort in his right shoulder.

    Advice: It doesn't sound like anything major, but the Astros will play it safe here in late February with the talented 23-year-old catcher. Stubbs, an eighth-round pick in 2015 out of USC, batted .304/.391/.469 with 10 home runs and 15 stolen bases in 86 games last season between High-A Lancaster and Double-A Corpus Christi. Today, 6:08 am
  • J.D. Martinez back in lineup Monday
    J.D. Martinez (pectorals) is back in the Tigers' lineup for Monday's Grapefruit League game.

    Advice: He will start in right field and bat cleanup against the Braves after sitting out a couple days due to minor soreness in one of his pectoral muscles. It obviously wasn't serious. Today, 5:57 am
  • Nationals have interest in OF Angel Pagan
    According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Nationals have expressed interest in free agent Angel Pagan.

    Advice: But only if it's going to be a non-guaranteed minor league deal, per Rosenthal's sources. Pagan has struggled to attract meaningful interest on the open market as a 35-year-old outfielder with durability issues. He could back up new center fielder Adam Eaton in Washington. Michael Taylor would probably then open the season at Triple-A. Today, 5:35 am
    Not Active
  • Ryan Braun won't play much in spring training
    Ryan Braun said Sunday that he's already "100 percent ready for the season" and won't need many at-bats during Cactus League games.

    Advice: Braun elaborated, "I’m serious. I don’t need any at-bats. I feel really good". "I need a week of spring training," he said. "I just don’t feel like I need at-bats to feel ready for games." The veteran outfielder is healthy for spring training for the first time in several years and made due with only 16 at-bats in seven spring training games last season. Yesterday, 6:32 pm
  • Saladino smacks two singles vs. Rockies
    Tyler Saladino finished 2-for-3 with a run scored Sunday as the White Sox topped the Rockies.

    Advice: Saladino singled in the first inning off Rockies starter German Marquez before adding another single in the bottom of the fourth against minor leaguer Harrison Musgrave. The 27-year-old utilityman is fighting for an Opening Day roster spot this spring. He owns a weak .257/.294/.376 career batting line in 161 major league games. Yesterday, 4:28 pm
  • Nelson Cruz homers as Mariners rout Padres
    Nelson Cruz went 2-for-2 with a home run, two RBI, a walk, and two runs scored Sunday in the Mariners' 13-2 exhibition rout of the Padres.

    Advice: Cruz launched a solo shot off Padres right-hander Zach Lee in the bottom of the second inning and then drew a walk with the bases loaded in the bottom of the third. He also singled in the bottom of the fourth. A pretty good three-inning stretch for the veteran slugger, who also went deep Saturday in his Cactus League debut. "Boomstick" is already ready for meaningful baseball games. Yesterday, 3:55 pm
  • Rua slugs two-run homer versus Royals
    Ryan Rua slugged a two-run homer Sunday in the Rangers' 6-4 win over the Royals.

    Advice: It was a first-inning shot to left-center field against Royals prospect Kyle Zimmer. Rua should have a spot on the Rangers' bench coming out of spring training after slashing .268/.331/.400 with eight home runs and nine stolen bases in 99 games last season. In his three-year MLB career, he has appeared defensively at first base, third base, left field, center field, and right field. Yesterday, 3:46 pm
  • Naquin doubles, scores in tie with Cubs
    Tyler Naquin doubled and scored a run Sunday in the Indians' exhibition tie with the Cubs.

    Advice: Naquin led off the top of the fourth inning with a two-bagger against Cubs reliever Zac Rosscup and then scored a few batters later on a Carlos Santana groundout. The 25-year-old center fielder should start against most right-handers to open the 2017 season after batting .296/.372/.514 with 14 home runs and six stolen bases in 116 games as a rookie. Yesterday, 3:05 pm
  • Blackmon homers, drives in two versus ARI
    Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in the Rockies' 6-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

    Advice: Blackmon led off the bottom of the first inning with a solo shot and added an RBI single in the bottom of the second. The dynamic center fielder carries massive fantasy potential into the 2017 season as the locked-in leadoff man in a dangerous Colorado lineup. He batted .324/.381/.552 with 29 home runs, 82 RBI, 17 stolen bases, and 111 runs scored in 143 games last year. Yesterday, 2:43 pm
  • Starlin Castro hits three-run homer in win
    Starlin Castro hit a three-run homer Sunday as the Yankees beat a Blue Jays split-squad 7-2.

    Advice: The Yankees reportedly shopped Castro over the winter, but there was a very limited market for middle infielders, especially ones with contracts like Castro's. Ideally, he'd play well enough early on to potentially give himself some trade value in July. The Yankees might need to keep him then if they're in contention, but they should be hoping to have Gleyber Torres at short and Didi Gregorius at second as early as April 2018. Yesterday, 12:52 pm
  • Todd Frazier (oblique) to resume hitting Mon.
    Todd Frazier (oblique) will resume hitting on Monday.

    Advice: Frazier tweaked his left oblique a week ago, but it's considered a minor strain and the third baseman is evidently feeling much improved. He's also felt some lingering effects of a sprained finger that he suffered late last season, but that doesn't appear to be an issue anymore. Frazier should be a top-10 fantasy third baseman in 2017 if he can stay healthy. Yesterday, 10:37 am
  • Heyward to play two of every three in ST
    Jason Heyward will play two out of every three games this spring and will continue to work on his swing during his days off.

    Advice: Heyward been retooling his swing this offseason following last year's disastrous campaign that saw him hit .230/.306/.325 in the regular season and .104/.140/.167 in the postseason. Results during spring training games are often a lot of fluff, but it will be worth tracking how Heyward does in Cactus League play. Yesterday, 9:45 am
  • Albert Pujols (foot) now fielding grounders
    Albert Pujols (foot) has begun fielding grounders hit right to him.

    Advice: He's also running with increased weight on the treadmill. Pujols hasn't been cleared for lateral movement or running on the field yet as he works his way back from December surgery for right plantar fasciitis, but he's coming along well. The future Hall of Famer won't be game-ready for a while, but he has a good shot to be ready for Opening Day. Yesterday, 9:08 am
  • Logan Forsythe gets injection in knee
    Logan Forsythe received an injection of Synvisc in his left knee last week.

    Advice: It's more of a maintenance injection that supplements fluids in joints which are affected by arthritis or cartilage deterioration. Forsythe had surgery on the knee back in September of 2011. "It’s just precautionary," said Forsythe. "I asked them (the Dodgers’ medical staff) if there was anything I could do to stay ahead of it." Yesterday, 9:02 am
  • Jason Kipnis nursing strained rotator cuff
    Jason Kipnis will be shut down from throwing for 4-5 days after being diagnosed with a strained right rotator cuff.

    Advice: The Indians have had Kipnis on what they were calling a shoulder strengthening/maintenance program this spring, but they had been saying it was just a precaution. Now we know that the second baseman is actually injured. Kipnis was given a cortisone shot in hopes that it will speed up the healing process. It's obviously unclear at this point as to when Kipnis might be game-ready. Yesterday, 8:08 am
  • Matheny says Wong injury not a big deal
    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Sunday that Kolten Wong's right shoulder injury "got made into a bigger deal than it ought to."

    Advice: The skipper added that Wong will make his Grapefruit League debut on Monday. "I heard that got made into a bigger deal than it ought to," said Matheny. "(Wong) wasn’t too happy this morning as to how it was interpreted because it was interpreted as we’re just being cautious. He’s going to be playing tomorrow. He’s doing just fine." Matheny can downplay the ailment all he wants, but the fact that Wong's shoulder is still sore five months after he was injured is a concern. It's something to keep an eye on this spring. Yesterday, 7:57 am
  • Kolten Wong (shoulder) hopes to play Monday
    Kolten Wong (shoulder) is hoping to be in the lineup Monday.

    Advice: He's sat out the Cardinals' first two Grapefruit League contests due to lingering right shoulder inflammation which first surfaced at the end of last season. The team hasn't expressed much concern about their second baseman to this point, but it's obviously worrisome that the injury isn't healed yet. Yesterday, 6:30 am
  • Lucas Duda (back) says he's day-to-day
    Lucas Duda said Sunday that he doesn't think his back spasms will linger more than a few days.

    Advice: It's good that he's optimistic, but it's not encouraging that Duda is already having back issues after his back sabotaged his 2016 campaign. He's been given cortisone shots in hopes that it will help speed up the healing process. Yesterday, 5:47 am
  • Lamb launches two-run homer vs. Anderson
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-2 with a two-run home run in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Lamb greeted Tyler Anderson with a two-run homer with one out in the first inning. He is a very palatable fantasy option in both mixed-league and NL-only formats. Last season, the 26-year-old third baseman slashed .249/.332/.509 with 29 homers, 91 RBI and 130 runs scored in 523 at-bats. Saturday, 4:49 pm
  • Boom Stick, baby: Cruz hits three-run homer
    Nelson Cruz launched a three-run home run in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Padres.

    Advice: Cruz unloaded for a three-run shot off Paul Clemens in the first inning. As David Byrne once sang, same as it ever was. Cruz belted 43 homers a year ago. He has crushed at least 40 dingers in each of the last three seasons. Saturday, 3:18 pm
  • Updating: Lucas Duda dealing with hip issues
    Updating an earlier report, Lucas Duda is actually healing with hip stiffness.

    Advice: Duda was scratched from Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals with what was believed to a back injury but apparently it's his hip that's bothering him. In fact, Duda received cortisone shots in both hips on Friday and will be out of commission for at least the next 48 hours. Duda hasn't been on the field since Wednesday. The 31-year-old is seemingly always hurt but can be a nice source of power when healthy. Saturday, 1:43 pm
  • Wong dealing with inflammation in shoulder
    Kolten Wong continues to deal with inflammation in his shoulder from the injury he sustained last season.

    Advice: While he has been doing strengthening work, they still need to address inflammation in the joint. There's also a possibility that the injury will require surgery, though the club has said "not yet" when asked directly about it. This is certainly a situation worth monitoring this spring. Saturday, 12:48 pm
  • Todd Frazier to ramp up activity on Monday
    Todd Frazier (oblique) is expected to ramp up his baseball activities on Monday.

    Advice: Frazier has been slowed by a minor oblique strain, but is progressing nicely and is nearing a return to game action. He's on track to debut in Cactus League play near the end of next week. While oblique injuries can be tricky, this doesn't appear serious and shouldn't impact Frazier's draft stock. Saturday, 8:46 am
  • Logan Forsythe hitting leadoff on Saturday
    Logan Forsythe is batting leadoff for the Dodgers in Cactus League play on Saturday.

    Advice: Forsythe is just one of the candidates competing to bat atop the Dodgers order this spring. Manager Dave Roberts has also indicated Andrew Toles, Joc Pederson and Andre Ethier are under consideration for that spot. Saturday, 8:40 am
  • Lucas Duda battling continued back stiffness
    Lucas Duda is not in the Mets starting lineup on Saturday due to continued back stiffness.

    Advice: Duda missed a large portion of the 2016 due to back stiffness and it's a discouraging development that he's continuing to deal with the issue after having an entire offseason to rest and rehab. The 31-year-old hit just .229/.302/.412 with seven homers and 23 RBI in 153 at-bats in 2016. The more time that he misses, the greater the opportunity for Michael Conforto to seize at-bats, either at first base or in right field with Jay Bruce manning first. Saturday, 7:48 am
  • J.D. Martinez scratched from Saturday lineup
    J.D. Martinez was scratched from the Tigers' starting lineup on Saturday due to tightness in his pectoral muscle.

    Advice: It doesn't sound as though it's anything serious, but at this point in the spring there's no reason to take any chances. Mikie Mahtook will slide into the starting lineup in his place, with Juan Perez shifting over to right field. Saturday, 6:15 am
  • Josh Donaldson (calf) throws, hits in cage
    Josh Donaldson (calf) played long-toss and hit in a batting cage Friday.

    Advice: Donaldson still has a little hitch in his giddy-up, but his right calf strain is coming along slowly but surely. The Blue Jays anticipate their star third baseman being be back to normal in a couple weeks. Friday, 11:40 am
  • Adrian Beltre (calf) to begin jogging Friday
    Adrian Beltre (calf) will do some jogging on Friday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's really tested out his left calf since he strained it last week. Beltre's injury could keep him from playing for his native Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic, but he should be fine come Opening Day as long as he doesn't have a setback. He's averaged 152 games played over the last five seasons, which is quite a feat especially since he'll turn 38 in April. Friday, 7:51 am
  • Todd Frazier's oblique injury is mild
    White Sox manager Rick Renteria said Todd Frazier's oblique injury is mild.

    Advice: Frazier strained his left oblique Monday in White Sox camp, but it sounds like he'll be ready for Cactus League action sometime near the end of next week. The hard-hitting third baseman should be 100 percent for Opening Day. He tallied a career-high 40 home runs and 98 RBI in 158 games last season. Thursday, 11:48 am
  • Jake Lamb doubles in spring training debut
    Jake Lamb drove in a run Wednesday in the Diamondbacks' spring training win over Grand Canyon University.

    Advice: Lamb doubled home a run in his only at-bat of the game. Dawel Lugo pinch-ran for him with one out in the first inning. Doubling against an obscure college in February doesn’t mean much, but Lamb should be in for another big season after breaking out for a career-high 29 homers in 2016. The 26-year-old boasts impressive power but will have to cut down on his strikeouts after whiffing 154 times in 523 at-bats last year. Wednesday, 2:30 pm
  • Todd Frazier dealing with oblique strain
    Todd Frazier suffered an oblique strain on Monday.

    Advice: The issue was originally described as soreness in his lower left side. Either way, he's likely to be shut down for a few days. There's no need to take a chance with him this early in the spring. Wednesday, 11:38 am
  • Longoria (illness) back in clubhouse Wed.
    Evan Longoria (illness) was back in the Rays' clubhouse on Wednesday.

    Advice: Longoria missed the last two days of camp after getting sick on Sunday night, but it was never a long-term concern. He should be good to go now. Wednesday, 5:46 am
  • Longoria still battling illness
    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday that Evan Longoria still had a high fever this morning.

    Advice: Longoria was also held out of Rays' camp on Monday, but it's not a long-term concern. He should be back to normal soon. Tuesday, 10:23 am
  • Gonzalez's elbow now pain-ree
    Adrian Gonzalez's right elbow is now pain-free.

    Advice: Gonzalez was recently shut down for two weeks due to tendinitis in his right elbow, but apparently he's already feeling a lot better. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he's still planning on playing for Mexico in the upcoming World Baseball Classic. Tuesday, 9:03 am
  • MRI reveals mild calf strain for Donaldson
    An MRI on Josh Donaldson's right calf revealed only a mild strain.

    Advice: Donaldson tweaked his calf while running sprints last Friday, but the Blue Jays think they've dodged a bullet here. "It's not a significant [strain]," general manager Ross Atkins said Monday. "So we're optimistic that he'll be back on his feet and moving pretty quickly." Barring a setback, the star third baseman should be fine come Opening Day. Monday, 2:28 pm
  • Longo out of camp Monday due to illness
    Evan Longoria was absent from Rays camp Monday due to a minor illness.

    Advice: There is a bug going around the club's spring training facilities. Longoria should be back in action by the middle of the week. Feb 20, 8:27 am
  • Albert Pujols (foot) feels 'really good'
    Albert Pujols (foot) said Sunday that his surgically-repaired right foot feels "really good" so far in early workouts.

    Advice: Pujols has been hitting in the cage and doing agility drills, as well as running on an Ultra G treadmill. He can't run on the field yet and it will be a while before he's cleared for game action, but Pujols still has a good chance to be ready for Opening Day. "As long as you get your work, hitting and ground balls, that’s what gets you ready," Pujols said. "I don't think taking three or four at-bats in a game is what gets you ready. It’s the ground balls the first couple weeks and the extra hitting and when we do the sessions down around the (practice) field. Those are the things that get you ready. I'm more focused on the things I do in the cage than what I do in the game." Feb 19, 9:43 am
  • Donaldson (calf) expected to miss 2-3 weeks
    Josh Donaldson (calf) was walking around on crutches Sunday and is expected to be sidelined for 2-3 weeks.

    Advice: Donaldson suffered a strained right calf while running on Friday. He should be fine for Opening Day as long as he can avoid a setback, but the Blue Jays will obviously take a cautious approach with their star third baseman. Donaldson has played at least 155 games each of the last four seasons. Feb 19, 8:54 am
  • Black wants Charlie Blackmon to run more
    Rockies manager Bud Black wants Charlie Blackmon to run more this season.

    Advice: Blackmon fell back to 17 stolen bases in 2016 after swiping 43 in 2015, with Black indicating that the drop was due in part to the outfielder's legs not feeling 100 percent. "Charlie is dangerous in (the batter’s) box and became a real threat, each and every time he got in the box or when he got on first base (in 2015)," Black said. "We’ve got to get back to that. We’ve talked about that a little bit. Charlie was a little bit banged up last year. He was able to play, but I don’t think his legs felt great." Blackmon dealt with separate toe issues on two occasions in 2016, so perhaps that's what Black is referring to. Regardless, it's encouraging from a fantasy perspective to hear that Blackmon might be in line to bounce back from a steals standpoint in 2017. Feb 19, 7:15 am
  • Donaldson diagnosed with right calf strain
    Josh Donaldson's MRI revealed a right calf strain.

    Advice: He suffered the injury while running on Friday. The Blue Jays say Donaldson will be treated daily and are optimistic he'll be ready for Opening Day. Donaldson has been remarkably durable throughout his career, missing just 19 games over his last four seasons. Unless we hear of a setback, Donaldson remains a borderline first-round pick in redraft formats. Feb 18, 1:26 pm
  • Josh Donaldson heads for MRI on right calf
    Josh Donaldson was sent for a precautionary MRI on Saturday after feeling a small tweak in his right calf while running on Friday.

    Advice: The team is still awaiting the results of that exam. Donaldson suffered a similar calf strain early during the 2016 season and didn't miss any time because of it. This shouldn't impact his availability for the start of the regular season. Feb 18, 12:51 pm
  • Roberts has mild concern over Adrian Gonzalez
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Saturday that he's only mildly concerned over Adrian Gonzalez' elbow injury.

    Advice: While it doesn't sound like it's going to be a lingering issue, Roberts did say that he didn't want Gonzalez to start as many games in 2017 in an effort to keep him fresh later in the season. Gonzalez has averaged 159 games per year over his 11 full seasons in the big leagues. Feb 18, 8:58 am
  • Donaldson (calf) misses Jays first workout
    Josh Donaldson skipped the Blue Jays first full workout on Saturday after feeling something in his right calf.

    Advice: It doesn't sound as anything more than a precautionary measure, but the club should have an update on his status later in the day. Donaldson has proven to be one of the most durable players in all of baseball, averaging 157 games per year over the past four seasons. Feb 18, 7:57 am
  • Adrian Beltre (calf) holding out hope for WBC
    Adrian Beltre (calf) said Saturday that he has yet to rule himself out for the first round of the World Baseball Classic.

    Advice: Beltre was diagnosed earlier in the week with a Grade 1 strain of his left calf which was expected to sideline him for 2-3 weeks. Reports on Friday had him very unlikely to play in the first round, with a chance that he could return for the rest of the tournament, but Beltre seems intent on playing for his country if he's physically able to. Feb 18, 7:10 am
  • A-Gone sidelined two weeks with tennis elbow
    Adrian Gonzalez won't swing a bat for two weeks due to a bout with tennis elbow.

    Advice: It shouldn't be a long-term concern for the veteran first baseman, but Gonzalez's ability to play for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic is now in doubt. The Dodgers should have more on Gonzalez's status early next month. He batted .285/.349/.435 with 18 homers and 90 RBI for Los Angeles last season. Feb 17, 11:38 am
  • Todd Frazier says finger no longer an issue
    Todd Frazier said Friday that his sprained finger feels fine and that he's been hitting every day since he arrived in White Sox camp.

    Advice: Frazier suffered a sprained finger on his left hand late last season and was still feeling symptoms during offseason workouts. Just a few weeks ago, the third baseman was wearing a splint on the finger. However, it appears for now that the issue might be behind him. Still, it's something to keep an eye on as he gets into Cactus League action. Feb 17, 8:50 am
  • Adrian Beltre strains calf, could miss WBC
    Adrian Beltre could miss the World Baseball Classic after suffering a Grade 1 left calf strain on Tuesday.

    Advice: He's expected to be sidelined for 2-3 weeks. A Grade 1 strain is the least severe, and Beltre wouldn't rule out playing for his native Dominican Republic in the WBC. However, he's obviously not going to push things and risk aggravating the ailment prior to Opening Day. Barring any setbacks, the injury should not affect his availability for the beginning of the season. Feb 17, 7:35 am
