    Royals RP Ryan Madson (back) expects to play catch Tuesday
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (11:52 am ET) Royals reliever Ryan Madson, who injured his back doing squats over the weekend, expects to play catch Tuesday after being scratched from throwing Monday, per The Kansas City Star.

    Nationals' Ian Stewart: I feel confident again in the batter's box
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (11:47 am ET) Ian Stewart is in camp with the Nationals this spring looking to land a spot on the team's bench. Stewart has a lot to prove since his career has been in decline since a 25-homer campaign in 2009 with the Rockies.

    Stewart said his offensive struggles had a lot to do with wrist and hand injuries he sustained the last few years, per The Washington Post. He also feels the changes he made to his swing and hitting style to please other organizations also didn't help. 

    However, he appears confident going back to his old routine will suit him well this spring.

    “This offseason, I just tried to get back to my old ways of hitting and ways of working out in the past,” he said. “Really, just trying to be as comfortable as I can in the box. I’ve gotten into my own head a lot the last few years. Just struggling and letting that affect different parts of my game. … I’m at a point where I’m completely comfortable in the box. I feel like my head is clear because I really felt so good hitting this winter that I feel confident again in the box. I’m comfortable, I’m loose, I’m not in my own head.”


    Dodgers manager Mattingly appoints Jimmy Rollins as leadoff man
    by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
    (11:44 am ET) A week after saying he wasn't fully committed to batting Jimmy Rollins at leadoff, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly revealed that the former Phillies shortstop will be the team's full-time leadoff man this year, per MLB.com.

    Rollins batted first in just 19 of 131 starts last season for the Phillies. Rollins, 36, hit .243/.323/.394 over 538 at-bats last season. He has a career .277 on-base percentage over 200 at-bats at Dodger Stadium.


    Phillies' De Fratus spent offseason adding velocity to fastball
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (11:38 am ET) Phillies reliever Justin De Fratus spent the offseason working on adding velocity to his fastball after losing a little zip on the pitch last season, per The Philadelphia Inquirer.

    De Fratus said he built up arm strength through a long-toss program.

    “I look at long toss like weightlifting,” De Fratus said. “The only way to get stronger is to keep doing it. How do you train your arm to go faster? Well, you try to throw it fast. That’s how I did it.

    “Knock on wood, I feel good. I’m ready to get after it to see if the work that I put into the offseason helps.”


    Mets not in significant trade talks with other clubs for Dillon Gee
    by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
    (11:37 am ET) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters there's barely any dialogue between other clubs about potential trades for pitcher Dillon Gee, who was on the block during the winter meetings. Gee is scheduled to start Wednesday's Grapefruit League opener against Atlanta, though he's slated to start the regular season as a long reliever.

    "I think most clubs, including ours, are focused on what's going on in camp and evaluating what they already have," Alderson said, per ESPN. "If there's going to be any significant trade talk, I think typically it's going to happen later in spring training, unless there's an injury of some sort. By and large, I think that comes more in the second half of spring training."


    Astros' Asher Wojciechowski moves to opposite side of pitching rubber
    by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
    (11:26 am ET) In an attempt to improve his delivery, Astros right-hander Asher Wojciechowski has moved from the third-base side of the pitching rubber to the first-base side, the Houston Chronicle reports.

    "I'm really pleased with Wojciechowski, coming off his health issues and everything," pitching coach Brent Strom said. "He's throwing the ball extremely well.

    "Wojo was a right-handed pitcher throwing from the third-base side of the rubber, slightly across body, which created a tough angle. We moved him to the far first-base side of the rubber, freed his arm up."

    Strom advised Wojciechowski's new position this spring after the 26-year-old was slowed down by a lat injury in 2014. Wojciechowski is on the 40-man active roster and is considered an outside candidate for the rotation. He's competing against Dan Straily and Roberto Hernandez for a spot on the opening day roster.


    A-Rod on spring debut: 'I'll be a little nervous, for sure'
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (11:22 am ET) Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez is battling an array of emotions heading into his spring debut Wednesday against the Phillies. Rodriguez will be making his first appearance in a Yankees uniform since Sept. 2013 after sitting out last season due to a season-long suspension.

    “I’ll be a little nervous, for sure,” he said Tuesday, per the New York Post. “I haven’t been in front of our fans for a long time. I’m excited about that. I have some challenges ahead... Ready to go. Not sure how ready, but I’ll give it a shot.”

    Rodriguez wants to rack up plenty of at-bats this spring following his long layoff.

    “At-bats are key for me. I haven’t seen live pitching in a long time,” he said. “The more at-bats, the better. And I know (manager) Joe (Girardi) talked a little bit about maybe going to the minor leagues and utilizing that, too.”
