Tyler Flowers credits timing, rhythm, tempo to improved spring
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:27 pm ET) White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers has seven hits over his last 16 Cactus League at-bats. When asked about his bat coming alive as of late, he said: "Just better timing, rhythm and tempo. That's the gist of it. There's no story line," per Chicago Sun-Times.

Flowers hit .214 last season for the White Sox. He is batting .233 (10 for 43) with three doubles, three homers and six RBI in 16 Cactus League games.


Cardinals' Garcia starts playing catch, aims to throw off mound soon
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:26 pm ET) Cardinals starting pitcher Jaime Garcia, who is on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation, began playing catch Wednesday, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Garcia is aiming to start throwing off a mound next week.

Garcia added he will build up to throwing 80 pitches before he will likely begin a minor-league rehab assignment.

"We're trying to make sure the inflammation is reduced and try to get there as quick and safe as possible," said Garcia, who had thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in July to address a nerve problem affecting his shoulder. "Whatever (the medical staff) has written down, we're just going to take it one day at a time."

Garcia indicated Wednesday the plan was for him to miss the first month of the season coming off surgery.

"Originally, the plan was for me to ready by the end of April or early May," Garcia said. "But by the fact that things were going so well, we moved things ahead a little  bit."

"I'm ready," Weaver said. "It's going to be fun to pitch under the lights again, obviously not in the first game, but it's nice to get that atmosphere back again. Get back out there and start a fresh season again. It's going to be fun."

Marlins planning off days for Michael Morse to help avoid injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:26 pm ET) Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Wednesday he will give veteran first baseman Michael Morse days off throughout the season in an effort to keep him off the trainer's table, per The Miami Herald.

"That's definitely something we'll monitor with him -- his health," Redmond said. "Will there maybe be some extra days off for him? We'll see and monitor that as he goes. Really the important thing for him is to keep him on the field. He knows that and we know that.

"But the beauty of our bench is we have options. We have [Jeff Baker]. We have Don Kelly. We can play them if [Morse] needs a blow. Martin Prado too. These guys, they want to play every single day. But at the same time too we need to be smart because we need them for the whole season. Keeping these guys together, healthy and strong is important as well."

Morse is having a productive spring, batting .348 (16 for 46) with one double, four home runs and 14 RBI in 18 games. He also has five walks and 11 strikeouts.


Marlins' Redmond not expecting rotation order to change
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:16 pm ET) Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Wednesday he is anticipating the rotation order to remain the same, per The Miami Herald. Henderson Alvarez will start Opening Day, and he will be followed by Jarred Cosart, Mat Latos, Tom Koehler and Dan Haren.

"(Wednesday) with Cosart throwing it's another big step, making sure his [blistered middle] finger gets through the grind of a game healthy," Redmond said. "I'm anticipating if everything stays fine with him this [order in the rotation] pretty much is what it is. But we'll know more after he goes out and pitches. I'm anticipating him being fine."
