    by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

    Plouffe showed up for the morning meetings, and then the team sent him home. 


    Padres' Middlebrooks, Solarte competing, getting along at third base
    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (2:04 pm ET) Padres thirdbasemen Will Middlebrooks and Yangervis Solarte are both battling to get the starting nod at third base during spring training, but the two are getting along just fine so far, reports UTSanDiego.com.

    "I'm trying to help him, he's trying to help me," Middlebrooks said. "We're working together, we're having fun and we're competing. It's for the team, and I think it'll be good if we both push each other."

    Middlebrooks hit .191 with two home runs and 19 RBI in 215 plate appearances for the Red Sox in 2014.

    He is also okay if he ends up playing a different position down the line.

    "Third base is the priority," he said, "but wherever I can get in the lineup, wherever I can help us win some baseball games, that's what's important for me."

    Meanwhile, Solarte is doing what he can to help Middlebrooks adjust to his new surroundings.

    "That's competing," Solarte said. "For me, it's my teammate. I want to work hard with him and make it fun, too."

    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (1:59 pm ET) Nationals pitcher Rich Hill is expected to compete for a bullpen spot with the team during spring training after being signed to a minor-league contract Friday.

    "Veteran, been there, got big league experience," Williams said. "We'll get him in camp, get a good look at him, and let him compete."

    Hill posted a 1.69 ERA in 14 appearances with the Yankees in 2014.

    "He's ready to go compete," Williams said. "He's here to vie for a spot."

    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

    Athletics' Coco Crisp dealing with short term case of pink eye
    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (1:44 pm ET) Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp is dealing with a short term case of pink eye and could miss a few more days of spring training, reports the San Jose Mercury News.

    "We're hoping we've caught it early," manager Bob Melvin said. "He came in with it yesterday and we've got him at home now hoping this resolves itself quickly."

    Crisp dealt with a similar problem at the end of the 2012 season, but isn't expected to miss as much time as he did then. 

    "We're hoping very much that it's not going to take him that long this time," Melvin said. "But if it had to happen, this is a good time, with so much of the spring left."

    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (1:11 pm ET) White Sox pitcher Chris Sale is expected to miss at least three weeks with an avulsion fracture in his right foot, the team announced Saturday. Sale, who suffered the injury in an accident at his home, underwent X-rays and will undergo further testing once the swelling goes down.

    He reportedly suffered the injury while unloading a item from his truck, according to general manager Rick Hahn. Sale is confident he can be ready by opening day, even though his status has yet to be determined.

    He went 12-4 with a 2.17 ERA in 174 innings pitched with 208 strikeouts in 2014.

    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
