Phillies not giving up yet on Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:26 pm ET) Phillies pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez is set to begin the second year of a three-year, $12 million contract in the minors after he was demoted to the minors on Sunday. However, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. is not ready yet to call Gonzalez's contract a mistake.

“We don’t know (if it was a mistake) yet,” Amaro said, per CSNPhilly.com. “We’ll know when it’s all said and done. I was asked the same question about Pat Burrell. When we won the World Series, did we regret it?

“It’s disappointing that Miguel hasn’t gotten there. But it’s not the end of the world yet. We’ll see. We’ve still got time. We’re hopeful he can step it up. If he can’t, he can’t.”

Gonzalez was hit hard this spring. He gave up 25 hits, including five home runs, in 14 1/3 innings.

“His stuff and his location just wasn’t good enough to make our club,” Amaro said. “The stuff wasn’t there. He wasn’t throwing well enough to make our club.

“The ball is coming out of his hand better, a lot better than it was last year, but it’s just not there right now. Hopefully it can get there at some point.”


Cardinals add Carlos Villanueva, place Jaime Garcia on DL
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:24 pm ET) The Cardinals have purchased the contract of pitcher Carlos Villanueva and placed pitcher Jaime Garcia on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder injury, the team announced Monday.

Garcia had been delivering an great performance this spring, posting a 3.86 ERA and 13:3 K:BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings, but suffered a setback in the last few days. He said Sunday he has been dealing with fatigue and soreness. Garcia will likely pitch in extended spring training in preparation for his late start to the regular season.

Garcia was in the mix to serve as the team's fifth starter before his setback, but that role will likely fall to either Carlos Martinez or Marco Gonzales.

Villanueva has surrendered six earned runs in 11 innings while striking out 11 batters and walking two this spring.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Baldwin was a fourth-round pick of the Dodgers in 2010 and hit .217/.292/.414 with 14 home runs, 43 RBI and 28 stolen bases in 374 at-bats with high Class A Rancho Cucamonga last season.


Indians reassign Jerry Sands to minor-league camp
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:12 pm ET) The Indians have sent outfielder Jerry Sands to minor-league camp, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports.

Dodgers 3B Juan Uribe (illness) back in lineup Monday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Marlins' Jarred Cosart set to return to mound Wednesday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:02 pm ET) Marlins starting pitcher Jarred Cosart is scheduled to start Wednesday's spring game against the Nationals, according to The Palm Beach Post. He threw a bullpen session Sunday after being scratched from his last spring start due to a blister on the middle finger on his right hand.

Cosart is 0-2 with am 8.49 ERA in four spring starts.


Cubs option Javier Baez, reassign Kris Bryant, Addison Russell
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:59 pm ET) The Cubs cut three of their key young players from major-league camp Monday, optioning infielder Javier Baez to Triple-A Iowa and reassigning third baseman Kris Bryant and shortstop Addison Russell to minor-league camp.

Baez was initially expected to open the season as the team's starting second baseman after racking up 213 at-bats in his rookie season in 2014. He hit just .169/.227/.324 with nine home runs, 20 RBI and five stolen bases last season but also struck out 95 times. Baez struggled to make an impact at the plate this spring, collecting just nine hits in 52 at-bats while striking out 20 times.

Bryant has been one of the best hitters in either spring-training league in 2015, going 17 for 40 with nine home runs and 15 RBI. He is expected to make his major-league debut during 2015. Russell, the biggest name from the trade that sent Jeff Samardzija to Oakland last season, hit .324/.359/.486 with one home run in 37 spring at-bats.

With Baez and Bryant out of the picture, the Cubs will likely choose between Arismendy Alcantara, Mike Olt and Tommy La Stella for playing time at second base and third base.


Mets acquire left-handed reliever Alex Torres in trade with Padres
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:53 pm ET) The Mets acquired left-handed reliever Alex Torres from the Padres on Monday. The Padres acquired pitcher Cory Mazzoni and a player to be named later in the trade.

The Mets have been trying to fill the void in the bullpen due to the absence of left-handed reliever Josh Edgin, who will miss the 2015 season due to Tommy John surgery.

Torres arrived in San Diego last January in a trade with Tampa Bay. He went 2-1 with a 3.33 ERA in 70 relief outings for the Padres in 2014. He is 7-4 with a 2.55 ERA over three MLB seasons.

Mazzoni is 24-12 with a 4.11 ERA over four seasons in the minors. He has mostly been used as a starter in the minors (53 starts, 12 relief appearances).


Indians option OF Tyler Holt to Triple-A Columbus
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:47 pm ET) The Indians have optioned outfielder Tyler Holt to Triple-A Columbus, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports.

Holt made his major-league debut last season and went on to hit .268/.307/.296 while also striking out 25 times in 71 at-bats. He was 11 for 42 with one double, one triple and three stolen bases this spring before being sent down.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:46 pm ET) The Reds made another rounds of cuts Monday, which included the release of veteran pitcher Paul Maholm, who was competing for a spot on the pitching staff this spring.

Other moves Monday included optioning pitcher Pedro Villarreal to Triple-A Louisville, as well as reassigning pitcher Nate Adock, infielder Ivan De Jesus Jr., infielder Irving Falu and catcher Kyle Skipworth to minor-league camp.
