    White Sox's Gordon Beckham working at multiple infield positions
    by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
    (8:30 pm ET) Gordon Beckham's main goal this spring training is to win the White Sox's starting second baseman position. 

    But for now, the White Sox are planning to use him at multiple positions in the infield during Cactus League play, according to MLB.com. This is somewhat new for Beckham, as he played second base during his first five-plus Major League seasons with the White Sox. 

    Though Beckham is looking to earn the starting job at second base, he seems to be enjoying playing multiple spots so far. 

    "I'm actually kind of enjoying running around," Beckham said. "I like popping around the infield. I know the coaches and the people making the decisions know I can play second base and know I can play it well. There has been an emphasis on them just telling me to get some work in other places."

    Beckham actually played shortstop in college at the University of Georgia and played that position, as well as third base, after the White Sox traded him to the Angels. He was brought back to Chicago on a one-year deal. 

    Beckham hit a single-season worse .226 for both the Angels and White Sox a season ago. 


    Giants' Tim Lincecum to 'piggyback' starter this week
    by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
    (8:20 pm ET) Giants manager Bruce Bochy said pitcher Tim Lincecum will see a relief appearance early this week, according to MLB.com

    Lincecum is generating rave reviews for his performance early on in spring training. However, he won't be getting a start this week. Bochy said Lincecum will "piggyback" either Madison Bumgarner (Tuesday), Jake Peavy (Wednesday), Ryan Vogelsong (Thursday) or Yusmeiro Petit (Friday) this week. 

    This means Lincecum will come in and get a starter's workload in relief. 


    Giants' Jake Peavy to start Wednesday for Giants
    by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
    (8:16 pm ET) Following Madison Bumgarner's exhibition start on Tuesday, the Giants will go with Jake Peavy to start Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Athletics, manager Bruce Bochy announced via MLB.com

    Ryan Vogelsong will pitch Thursday against the Cubs and Yusmeiro Petit will go Friday against the Rangers. 


    White Sox's Gordon Beckham working at multiple infield positions

    Phillies pitcher Paul Clemens fighting for spot in bullpen
    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (7:16 pm ET) Phillies pitcher Paul Clemens has been told he has a great arm. But Clemens, who posted a 5.51 ERA in 48 appearances with the Astros over the last two years, knows it'll take more than that.

    "Some pitching coaches tell me how incredible my arm is and that I could play for a long time, so I think I've been showing some guys what I bring to the table," Clemens said. "I had a couple really good conversations with front office and some guys around here, so it's definitely motivating."

    He wants to be able to pick out his spots better during spring training, knowing he has to impress as a non-roster invitee.

    "Sometimes I think I get too overzealous with my fastball and I just pound it and pound it and pound it. So picking my spots more, being smarter. You can't really challenge guys at this level. Once in a while you've got to pick your spots, but you can't challenge too many guys, even the guys you don't really know their names as much. You've still got to pitch."


    Athletics to ease Coco Crisp into action this spring
    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (7:08 pm ET) Athletics manager Bob Melvin wants to take things slow with veteran outfielder Coco Crisp this spring, reports MLB.com.

    "I'll probably hold him out the first few because I'm going to cut down on his workload," Melvin said Sunday.

    Crisp, who is dealing with a case of pinkeye, was held out of an intrasquad scrimmage, even though he was able to take part in batting practice.


    Cardinals' Jhonny Peralta hoping to recreate 2014 season in 2015
    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (7:05 pm ET) Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta wants to be able to do a lot of the things he succeeded doing in 2014. 

    "I think what I did last year was pretty good for my first year in the National League," Peralta said. "I felt good about the home runs I hit. I know the average wasn't at .300, but I finished better than I started."

    Peralta hit .263 with 21 home runs and 75 RBI in 560 plate appearances. His manager, Mike Matheny, wants to see a similar guy in 2015.

    "He's been very consistent with getting himself ready and what he needs to do and who he needs to be. He came in here last year with a very workmanlike approach and went about it to build up for opening day," Matheny said.


    Braves' Tanner Murphy drawing praise from bullpen coach
    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (6:43 pm ET) Braves catcher Tanner Murphy is feeling the love this spring. The second-year player is being tabbed by bullpen coach Eddie Perez as the guy to watch in spring training.

    "He's my number one guy so far," Perez said. "It's nice to have somebody like him because you don't know what's going to happen. When you look at this kid, you know something good is going to happen."

    Murphy played just 82 games of rookie ball last year.

    "He's got some talent and he's got some ability," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "I saw him throw to the bases. (Catching instructor) Joe Breeden has seen him the most and Joe likes him a lot."


    Jim Henderson throws off mound Sunday where season ended last year
    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (6:02 pm ET) Brewers pitcher Jim Henderson completed his first session against live batters Sunday and felt a weight lift off his shoulders, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

    "That same mound I threw on just now was the same mound that I realized the season was over on last year, so I was thinking about that when I got out there," Henderson said.

    "I was like, ‘Forget this mound.’ It was kind of one of those moments where it was like this is where it ended and this is where it's going to begin again."

    Henderson threw against three batters in Sunday's practice.

    "It went well," he said. "It was just more of getting the feel out there today. Seeing the hitters and getting on a game mound again, just trying to get the feel back. That’s what I was looking for out of it – that competitiveness – and that’s what I got out of it."


    Cubs' Joe Maddon impressed by Kris Bryant
    by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
    (5:59 pm ET) Cubs manager Joe Maddon said third baseman Kris Bryant has been one of the most impressive position players this spring, reports MLB.com

    "He's solid, he's motivated," Maddon said. "He's got a really nice way about him. He's really good, he knows he's really good, but he carries that very well. I like that. False humility doesn't do anything. It's kind of a worthless quality. I think his humility is sincere, but he also knows that he's good."

    Despite Maddon's endorsement of Bryant, Maddon would not commit to Bryant making the Opening Day roster.

    "Somewhere," Maddon said. "There's all kinds of Opening Days."
