    Rays' Matt Moore targeting a June return
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (7:10 pm ET) Rays pitcher Matt Moore is targeting a June return, according to MLB.com.

    Moore underwent Tommy John surgery last season, but was able to throw off a mound for the first time on Tuesday. Moore said he's hoping he can return to a major-league mound in June. "I hope June, [to pitch] in a Major League game, he said. "I think that's about right -- 14 months [after the surgery]. So we should know a lot more in the next month as I start to get on the hill and things have a chance to respond."

    Moore started just two games last season before undergoing surgery.

    Rowen, 26, debuted with the Rangers last season, giving up four earned runs in 8 2/3 innings in eight appearances while striking out seven batters and walking four (three intentional). He posted a 3.45 ERA and 31:9 K:BB ratio in 47 innings with Triple-A Round Rock in 2014.

    by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

    The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Cuban outfielder Dian Toscano, with whom the team announced a four-year deal Wednesday. Constanza received just four at-bats with the Braves in 2014 while hitting .293/.344/.324 with no home runs, 36 RBI and 30 stolen bases in 447 at-bats with Triple-A Gwinnett.


    Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts: 'Strongest I've ever felt'
    by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
    (2:57 pm ET) Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts has been working out at the EXOS performance institute in Arizona, the facility where second baseman Dustin Pedroia trains every offseason. ESPN.com says Bogaerts feels he's pushed himself more than ever before, "and the results are showing."

    "This is probably the strongest I’ve ever felt going into a season -- and by far,” Bogaerts said, via the website. “I’m definitely real excited for the season.”

    Bogaerts, 22, had an up-and-down 2014 season, his first full year in the majors. He finished at .240 with 12 homers and 46 RBI in 144 games.

    He'll spend a few more weeks training in Arizona before reporting to spring training.

    “I kind of never challenged my body to lift heavier weights because I’ve always tried to kind of maintain the same,” Bogaerts said. “Getting the knowledge from those kind of guys and just trusting the whole system that they have over there and just pushing your body, it’s really a difference than any years I’ve had in the past.

    “It was mostly gym and conditioning and speed and stuff like that, power and speed. It was definitely something that I really enjoyed.”
