  • 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 41 minutes ago
  • Rodriguez's shoulder surgery details revealed
    Sean Rodriguez's left shoulder surgery involved the repair of a badly torn rotator cuff, labrum damage and a biceps tendon that had to relocated.

    Advice: It's no wonder that he's essentially already been ruled out for the season. Rodriguez, who suffered the injuries during a car crash in late January, is under contract with the Braves through 2018. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:36 am

  • Hechavarria in camp but will leave Tuesday
    Adeiny Hechavarria has returned to Marlins camp but will have to appear in court again Tuesday.

    Advice: Hechavarria is testifying at the trial of Bartolo Hernandez and trainer Julio Estrada, who are facing conspiracy and alien smuggling charges. He expects his involvement with the trial to be over after Tuesday. "What’s going on with the court is not something I’m really worried about. I was requested to be there by the FBI, so obviously I was there. I said everything I knew," said Hechavarria. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:12 am
  • Gordon, Escobar candidates to bat leadoff
    Royals manager Ned Yost on Saturday mentioned Alex Gordon and Alcides Escobar as candidates to bat leadoff this season.

    Advice: "Gordy’s done well there before," Yost said. "We’ll see. I don’t know. We have to look at it. Esky has done OK there before." Neither are ideal options given that Gordon batted just .220/.312/.380 in 2016 and Escobar has a career .297 on-base percentage. Whit Merrifield would also seem to be a candidate for the leadoff spot, but he's got to win the second base job first. The Royals could wind up mixing and matching in the leadoff spot this season.

  • Chase d'Arnaud taking reps at first base
    Chase d'Arnaud took reps at first base on Saturday.

    Advice: Utility man Sean Rodriguez was slated to back up Freddie Freeman at first base in addition to playing second base against left-handed pitchers, but now he's likely out for the season after injuring his shoulder in a car accident. D'Arnaud claims he hasn't played first since Little League but is willing to give it a shot with Rodriguez sidelined indefinitely. Nick Markakis, who has started five career games at first base, will also get reps there this spring. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:55 pm

  • MRI results come back clean for J.J. Hardy
    Orioles manager Buck Showalter told reporters on Saturday that J.J. Hardy's MRI resuts came back clean.

    Advice: Hardy underwent an MRI and a CT scan on Friday, but it looks as though everything came back without issue. Hardy is expected to be cleared for baseball activities around March 1 and could play in games by March 10. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:44 am

  • Elvis Andrus doing all baseball activities
    Elvis Andrus said Saturday that he's nearing full strength and is currently participating in all baseball activities.

    Advice: Andrus underwent surgery in November to repair a sports hernia, but says he's already at 80-90 percent of full strength. With no limitations now, it sounds as though he should be fully healthy and ready to go for the start of the regular season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:50 am

  • Freddy Galvis' groin not an issue
    Freddy Galvis (groin) is participating in workouts fully.

    Advice: Galvis had to pull out of playing for Venezuela in the upcoming World Baseball Classic due to groin tightness, but he's expected to be fine. "Freddy looks good," Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. "We’re just being cautious." Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:46 pm

  • Reyes expected to lead off 3-4 days per week
    The Mets plan to have Jose Reyes bat leadoff 3-4 days per week.

    Advice: It could be more than that, of course, depending on how David Wright's (neck) health is. The Mets aren't sure yet who will bat leadoff for them on days when Reyes doesn't start. Reyes is slated to see time all over the infield and some in the outfield this spring as he prepares for a super utility role. He could be a sneaky value in fantasy drafts this spring as a guy who doesn't technically have a starting job but who is likely to wind up playing a lot. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:53 am

  • Cozart says his knee is '100 percent'
    Zack Cozart said his knee is "100 percent" leading into spring training this year.

    Advice: Cozart wore a balky brace on his surgically-repaired right knee last season after suffering a major injury to that joint in 2015. He's already a good defensive shortstop, and this should only help his range. Jose Peraza will flank him at second base following the Brandon Phillips trade. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:40 am
  • Profar to start in LF for Rangers in 2017
    Jurickson Profar is slated to start in left field for the Rangers in 2017.

    Advice: It's part of the fallout from the Rangers' reunion with veteran first baseman Mike Napoli. The other fallout: Shin-Soo Choo will serve as the regular DH for Texas in 2017 and Joey Gallo will get most of his work this spring at third base. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:46 am

  • Albies won't see games for a few weeks
    Braves manager Brian Snitker said Tuesday that prospect infielder Ozzie Albies (elbow) is "a little behind" and won't get in games for a few weeks.

    Advice: Albies underwent surgery last September to repair a fractured olecranon bone in his right elbow. There's still a chance that he could be ready for the start of the season, but the Braves don't want to rush their top prospect. The 20-year-old could see his first taste of the majors this year if he shows improvement during his second stint in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:28 am

  • Duffy (heel) is 'good to go' for spring
    Rays vice president Chaim Bloom said Monday that Matt Duffy (heel) "should be good to go" for spring training.

    Advice: Duffy will report to camp in Port Charlotte, Florida sometime this week. The shortstop needed Achilles surgery last September, just 21 games into his tenure with the Rays. He is expected to be 100 percent by the opening of the 2017 regular season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:56 am

  • Reds' Price: Jose Peraza set to start at 2B
    Reds manager Bryan Price confirmed Monday that Jose Peraza is in line to start at second base.

    Advice: That assumes all goes smoothly this spring. The second base job opened up Sunday when the Reds traded Brandon Phillips to Atlanta for left-hander Andrew McKirahan and right-hander Carlos Portuondo. Peraza carries major fantasy upside into 2017 after slashing .324/.352/.411 with three home runs and 21 stolen bases in 72 games last season as a 22-year-old. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:49 am
