Rangers GM won't interfere with Russell Wilson's plans
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(2:46 pm ET) Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said that despite Russell Wilson having the drive to play professional baseball, he will not interfere with Wilson's current career as quarterback for the Seahawks, per ESPN.com. 

Wilson recently told HBO's "Real Sports" that he does have the ambition to one day play both sports and that the Rangers, who own his rights, would give him a shot is he wants.


Micah Johnson hasn't been on base enough to show White Sox his speed
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2:45 pm ET) White Sox rookie second baseman Micah Johnson is off to a slow start, hitting .190 and looking shaky in the field.  

Manager Robin Ventura plans to leave him on the field, though. "All of it becomes an evaluation mode, especially when a guy, it’s his first time," Ventura said, per the Sun Times. "But you also have to give him a little leeway. It’s his first time going through it, and he has to be able to adjust, and there’s probably a slight over-effort part for him right now of trying to prove things instead of just playing the game. I think he’s better off when he’s just playing the game and he’s not sitting there thinking he has to prove himself."

Johnson also hasn't had the chance to show off his speed, one of the factors that earned him a spot in the lineup to start the season. He had 84 steals in the minor leagues two years ago.

"The opportunities need to be there," Ventura said. "Micah hasn’t really been on as much as you like. You can only do so much with that. You have to have the right opportunities to be able to do it. Do you expect more of those? I would, of them getting on base and being able to steal."


White Sox David Robertson helping Zach Putnam learn cutter
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2:39 pm ET) White Sox closer David Robertson learned the cutter from one of baseball's best practitioners of the pitch--Mariano Rivera. 

Robertson is now passing on that knowledge to Chicago bullpen-mate Zach Putnam

"I'm trying to have him impart some of that knowledge on to me as I develop that pitch as a third pitch," Putnam said, per MLB.com. "It was almost surreal listening to him talk yesterday. He was like, 'Mo holds his like this and does this with it,' and I'm like, 'I wish I had a camera to record all this so I have it for future reference.' But I'm trying to learn from him whenever I can."


Dodgers RF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) likely to start on Tuesday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(2:32 pm ET) Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is likely to rejoin the lineup for Tuesday's game in San Francisco, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Puig had missed three games with tightness in the hamstring before playing Saturday, but experienced pain and is out of the lineup again for Sunday.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Puig is "sore" but "hopefully nothing serious."

Wesley Wright may return to Orioles sooner than expected
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2:24 pm ET) Orioles pitcher Wesley Wright's left shoulder, which has him on the disabled list, is doing better, manager Buck Showalter said, per MASN Sports

Wright was initially expected to be out until mid-May, but Showalter said he could return sooner than expected. He's eligible to come off the DL next week. 


Orioles' J.J. Hardy hits off tee, will hit in cage on Monday
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2:20 pm ET) Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy hit off a tee on Sunday. 

Hardy is on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder injury. He's expected to hit in the batting cage on Monday, per MASN Sports

"We knew it wasn't going to be really quick," said manager Buck Showalter. "We just want to get it right the first time. I just hope it's not something that lingers, but if it does, we'll wait."


Blue Jays' Michael Saunders (knee) remains unlikely for homestand
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(2:18 pm ET) Blue Jays outfielder Michael Saunders (knee) played in extended spring game on Saturday but remains unlikely for the team's current homestand, according to TSN 1050.

Saunders had to suspend his rehab from knee surgery earlier in the week due to tightness in his hamstring.

Royals recall Yohan Pino
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2:17 pm ET) The Royals called up pitcher Yohan Pino from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday. 

Pino made his presence felt immediately, throwing four and two thirds scoreless innings of relief in Saturday's loss. He struck out three, walked none and allowed three hits. 


Twins' Ricky Nolasco throws bullpen, rehab assignment next
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2:14 pm ET) Twins pitcher Ricky Nolasco threw a bullpen session on Sunday, as he attempts to come back from an elbow injury that has him on the disabled list. 

GM Terry Ryan said on Inside Twins that Nolasco's bullpen "went well". The next step will be a minor league rehab assignment. 


Chris Capuano to pitch batting practice for Yankees
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2:00 pm ET) Yankees pitcher Chris Capuano was scheduled to throw a 45-pitch batting practice session on Sunday, per the Daily News
