    Padres' Shields being held back following deep postseason run
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (10:11 am ET) Since Padres starting pitcher James Shields pitched deep into the postseason last year with the Royals, the coaching staff has him slightly behind the other starters in camp, per U-T San Diego.

    "Fortunately, we don't have to start him until a little bit further -- he's not starting in the first three (spring-training) games -- but he'll be fine," pitching coach Darren Balsley said. "It's no big deal."


    Nationals' Cole earns high praise from manager following BP session
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (10:08 am ET) The Nationals held their first live batting practice session of the spring Sunday, and starting pitcher prospect A.J. Cole earned high marks from manager Matt Williams, per MLB.com.

    “He had a great live session today,” Williams said. “For me, he is growing into body. He is a young player. He is tall. He has great leverage and is getting stronger certainly by the year. This year he came into spring training looking great. Of course, we know about his fastball and curveball. Depending on the day, he can touch mid-to-high 90s with his fastball. He is a very promising prospects for us and still very young.  … I know he wants to pitch and loves taking the ball that for sure.”

    Cole is considered the Nationals' second-best prospect by MLB.com.

    Tigers RP Joel Hanrahan (arm) to visit specialist Tuesday
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (9:50 am ET) Tigers reliever Joel Hanrahan, who has not thrown since Feb. 22 due to arm soreness, will visit a specialist in Texas on Tuesday, manager Brad Ausmus announced Monday.

    Hanrahan described the soreness as some days it feels like the bones are rubbing together and other days it feels like someone is pinching his bicep, per the Detroit Free Press. Hanrahan has not pitched since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2013.

    “I’m past the frustration part. It’s been long enough. I’m just looking for answers," Hanrahan said.

    “Anytime that happens, especially early in the spring, we make sure that we take it easy on him. He is full go. He is ready to play,” Williams said.

    Taylor is expected to see plenty of playing time this spring with right fielder Jayson Werth sidelined due to a shoulder injury. Taylor is considered the Nationals' third-best prospect by MLB.com.

    Rangers pitcher Nick Tepesch admits to pressing too hard last spring
    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (12:41 am ET) Rangers pitcher Nick Tepesch is still pushing to earn a spot on the team's starting rotation this spring, but he knows he pushed a bit too hard last year, reports the Dallas Morning News.

    "I was just trying to do a little too much," said Tepesch, who threw a scoreless inning on 14 pitches in Sunday's intrasquad game. "I was trying to make perfect pitches and staying who I am. Getting sent down allowed me to look at what made me successful and try to own those types of things. It was beneficial. I also now know that I can only control what I do. If I stay focused on that, pressure takes care of itself."


    Tigers' Blaine Hardy hoping to reign in his accuracy in 2015
    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (3/1/2015) Tigers pitcher Blaine Hardy is using this spring training to work on his control. Hardy struggled in 2014 with his control, walking 20 batters in 39 innings pitched.

    "Last year I walked more people than I would've liked," he said to MLB.com. "That's definitely a learning point, learning the strike zone. It's a little bit different, a little bit smaller, but more consistent. With that being said, I felt like I had a good year, and hopefully I'll be able to come in and do the same thing with less walks."

    Manager Brad Ausmus didn't think Hardy's season was as bad as people believe it was.

    "I thought he did a good job for us, quite frankly," Ausmus said. "It kind of irks me a little bit when people want to split players' seasons up: Player X had a good year, but he really struggled in the second half. He still had a good year.

    "Guys are going to struggle at some point in the season. It's probably more likely they struggle in the second half as they tire, but you can't discount what they did in the first half. Those games are just as important to win."
