Player Notes

  • Cishek (hip) plays catch in M's camp
    Steve Cishek (hip) played catch Tuesday for the first time since arriving to Mariners' camp.

    Advice: Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN said that things "appeared to go well." It was an important step for Cishek, who required offseason surgery to fix a torn labrum and also had microfracture surgery. The hope is that he could be ready to return by the end of April, but it will all depend on how his body responds to ramping things up. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:32 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 am

  • Kintzler expected to begin year as closer
    Twins general manager Thad Levine said on Fantasy Sports Radio on Tuesday that Brandon Kintzler will be "given every opportunity to start the year in the closer's role."

    Advice: It's not surprising, as Glen Perkins is making his way back from labrum surgery and could begin the year on the disabled list. Kintzler served as the closer for the bulk of the 2016 season and posted a 3.15 ERA, 17 saves, and a 35/8 K/BB ratio over 54 1/3 innings. Perkins could regain the role if he proves his health and effectiveness, but Kintzler is the pitcher to own in this bullpen for now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:28 am
  • Perkins (shoulder) set for bullpen session
    Glen Perkins (shoulder) will throw his next bullpen session on Wednesday.

    Advice: Perkins felt some minor discomfort in his surgically-repaired shoulder after arriving to camp, but he has thrown a couple of bullpen sessions in recent days. The real test will be to see how he responds to ramping things up to batting practice and game action. The Twins aren't going to rush things here, so he's a possibility to start the year on the disabled list. Brandon Kintzler is expected to begin the season as the Twins' closer.

  • Correa hits in batting cage Tuesday
    Carlos Correa hit in the batting cage on Tuesday.

    Advice: Correa has been limited in the early days of camp after having four wisdom teeth removed last Thursday. However, he hopes to be cleared for full activity before Wednesday's workout. He'll be back to normal soon enough. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:43 am
