    Five Twins return for workouts on Tuesday
    by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
    (11:07 am ET) All five Twins players -- Byron Buxton, Trevor May, Oswaldo Arcia, Jordan Schafer and Kurt Suzuki -- that were sent home due to illness on Monday, returned to the clubhouse on Tuesday and rejoined the club for workouts, reports the Star Tribune.

    The Twins begin exhibition season Wednesday with a game against the University of Minnesota.


    Royals' Yost hopeful Alex Gordon will take BP by next Tuesday
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (10:59 am ET) Royals manager Ned Yost said he hopes outfielder Alex Gordon (wrist) will be able to take batting practice by next Tuesday, according to The Kansas City Star.

    Rays' Franklin confident he'll win competition to be starting shortstop
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (10:51 am ET) Rays infielder Nick Franklin will be battling for the starting job at shortstop this spring, and he has no doubts he can play the position at the major-league level.

    "Absolutely," Franklin said, per the Tampa Bay Times. "Absolutely. 100 percent. I've grown up playing shortstop. Even at the big-league level, playing short just seems natural to me. I enjoy it. I'm really comfortable there. … It's been in my blood for a long time.

    "I wouldn't say I need any work. Honestly, I think over these past years I've improved a significant amount at shortstop. … I've been practicing all offseason at short. And there's really no weakness."

    The Rays plan to take most of the spring to decide who will be the team's starting shortstop, but Franklin seems pretty confident he will emerge as the victor in the competition.

    "I'm going to be out there at short," he said. "There's not a doubt in my mind that I'm not."


    Reds' Price: Votto's absence from lineup shouldn't last too long
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (10:34 am ET) Reds manager Bryan Price reiterated Tuesday first baseman Joey Votto's absence from the spring lineup shouldn't be a lengthy one, per the Cincinnati Enquirer.

    Votto, who will not play in Tuesday's spring opener against the Indians, is behind other players in drills, including lateral movement and sliding.

    "I don't anticipate it being in the middle of the schedule, it's really hard for me to say an exact date," Price said. "It really comes down to getting enough reps to where we're comfortable enough to put him out there and letting him play. It's not like we're going to see a huge separation between him and the rest of the guys."

    Price added the team is just being cautious with Votto, who missed 100 games last season with a left knee injury.

    "He's come this far, he's put in all the work to do this," Price said. "It just didn't make sense between the medical staff and myself until he gets as many ground balls and the opportunity to slide and cut and do all the drills and do all the things he wasn't able to do before he got to spring training."


    McClendon: Mariners' Paxton feeling good after playing catch Monday
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (10:23 am ET) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Tuesday starting pitcher James Paxton (forearm) felt great after playing catch Monday, per The Seattle Times. Paxton will long toss Tuesday.

    Josh Johnson scheduled to throw to catcher on flat ground next week
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

    Rangers' Andrus feeling better, but unlikely to play in spring opener
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (10:15 am ET) Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus said his left knee felt better Tuesday, but he is unlikely to play in Wednesday's spring opener against the Royals, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Andrus added the injury is not considered serious.

    Blue Jays' Santana slated to start throwing program Tuesday
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (10:13 am ET) Blue Jays starting pitcher Johan Santana is slated to start a throwing program Tuesday, as he is scheduled to play catch, according to the National Post

    Santana, who suffered a torn Achilles in June, was shut down in January after having some shoulder discomfort while pitching in the Venezuelan winter league.


    Marlins delay Giancarlo Stanton's spring debut until Thursday
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (10:07 am ET) The Marlins opted to push back outfielder Giancarlo Stanton's spring debut to Thursday. Stanton, who hasn't played since getting hit in the face in September, was originally scheduled to face the University of Miami in an exhibition game Tuesday.

    "It just made more sense -- he can get more at-bats on the backfield," manager Mike Redmond said, per The Miami Herald. "We have simulated games going on back there. So, it just made more sense for him instead of going over there for one at-bat, keep him back here and he can get more at-bats and more work done back here and then he'll be ready to roll for Thursday."


    Reports: Mets eyeing third game of season for Matt Harvey's debut
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (9:52 am ET) It appears the Mets are leaning toward having starting pitcher Matt Harvey, who has not pitched in a regular season game since Aug. 2013 due to Tommy John surgery, make his season debut in the third game at Washington, several team sources told the New York Post.

    The Mets are targeting the third game on the road, as opposed to the season and home openers, because they don't want Harvey to feel added pressure given the circumstances, particularly if he makes his first start in front of an exhilarated home crowd.

    "All that has been discussed,’’ one source said.

    “Things can change, but that schedule makes sense,’’ another source said.

    Harvey seems fine with whatever the Mets have in store.

    “Anything they want to do is good,’’ Harvey said.
