    Orioles' Matt Wieters set for 'catcher movement' drills Monday
    by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
    (12:09 pm ET) Orioles catcher Matt Wieters will get behind the plate Monday to take part in "catcher movement" drills, which involve quickly throwing to each base, MLB.com reports.

    "It's got to be a little more reactive and instinctual, which is what we're going to try to accomplish with this," Wieters said. "We'll go by feel. I got into -- a little bit earlier in the rehab -- where I wanted to test it, test it, test it, then you end up pushing it too far and you can set yourself back. It's a matter of just going by feel and getting as much out of it as we can without feeling like we're fatiguing and risking injury."

    Wieters caught two innings in Sunday's intrasquad game, marking his first time catching a game since undergoing Tommy John surgery. "It's definitely nice to get back there, but as far as feeling like I was rusty or anything like that, I really didn't. It felt kind of normal back there being a catcher," Wieters said.

    The catcher is expected to make his Grapefruit League debut in Tuesday's home opener as the team's designated hitter.


    Rangers SP Derek Holland (shoulder) plans to throw Monday
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (11:58 am ET) Rangers starting pitcher Derek Holland, who was scratched from pitching in Sunday's intrasquad game due to shoulder soreness, plans to throw Monday, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

    "Trust me, I feel very good. I'm fine," he said.

    General manager Jon Daniels said Monday that Holland has "improved," and he could pitch in a spring game this weekend or early next week.


    Nationals' Michael Taylor participates fully in Monday workout
    by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
    (11:55 am ET) Nationals outfielder Michael Taylor (neck) participated fully in Monday's workouts, the Washington Post reports.

    Taylor has been recovering from a neck twinge and was also able to take part in Sunday's workouts. Taylor should see significant time in right field while Jayson Werth (shoulder) recovers.


    A-Rod will not play in Yankees' spring opener Tuesday
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (11:51 am ET) Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez will not play in the team's spring opener Tuesday against the Phillies. His name was not highlighted on the roster of players selected to travel to Clearwater, Fla., per NJ.com.

    Rodriguez, however, was scheduled to DH and bat fourth in Monday's intrasquad game. There is no word yet if he will play in Wednesday's spring game against the Phillies.


    Mets' Matt Harvey faces batters for the second time this spring
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (11:45 am ET) Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey (elbow) faced batters Monday for the second time this spring. He threw 26 pitches, while pitching to David Wright and Curtis Granderson, per NJ.com.

    Harvey, who will make his spring debut March 6, has not pitched in a major-league game since Aug. 2013.


    Yankees' Brendan Ryan 'progressing nicely'
    by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
    (11:45 am ET) Yankees infielder Brendan Ryan said Monday that his recovery from a mid-back muscle strain is "progressing nicely," the Star-Ledger reports.

    Ryan, who hurt his back doing bicep curls, said he's targeting a late-week return from the issue. He also missed much of last year's spring training with an unrelated back injury.


    Phillies' Chase Utley misses Monday workout
    by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
    (11:40 am ET) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley didn't work out Monday as he continues to recover from an ankle issue, MLB.com reports.

    Utley won't play in the spring opener and said Monday that he'll miss this week's slate of games entirely, the Philadelphia Daily News reports. The second baseman that while his ankle has improved in the last week, it's still pretty swollen and he has yet to begin running.

    Utley suffered the ankle injury in January after stepping on a baseball.


    Mariners' Rickie Weeks will also play at first base this spring
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (11:38 am ET) Rickie Weeks has primarily been working in the outfield since arriving for spring training, but Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Monday that Weeks will also work at first base later this spring, per MLB.com.

    “He will be that backup first baseman in case something happens,” said McClendon, noting he’s leaning more toward Weeks than fellow utility man Willie Bloomquist as a backup first baseman.


    Mariners DH Nelson Cruz to see time in right field 'on occasion'
    by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
    (11:35 am ET) Mariners designated hitter Nelson Cruz will see time in right field "on occasion" in order to let the team stream players through the designated-hiter slot, MLB.com reports.

    "He’ll play out there in the season on occasion, because it’s nice to be able to rotate him out of that DH spot and give somebody else a day off and get him back on his feet," manager Lloyd McClendon said. "How much he’ll play in the spring, I’m not sure. But it would be safe to say he’ll play his share of games during the season in right field."

    Cruz will primarly serve as a designated hitter by the Mariners but has played 744 games in right field in his career and 833 games in the outfield overall. While he's not on defense, the team is expected to use Seth Smith against most righties and Justin Ruggiano against most southpaws.


    Viola: Mets' prospect Leathersich is a poor man's Sid Fernandez
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (11:33 am ET) Mets relief prospect Jack Leathersich has made a name for himself in the minors as a strikeout artist, as over his four-year career he is striking out 15.2 batters per nine innings. The left-hander is only 24 years old, meaning he could have a long and bright future with the Mets.

    "If it all clicks, there's that lefty the Mets have been looking for in the big leagues and he's going to be there for a long time," Mets' Triple-A pitching coach Frank Viola said. "I compare him to a lesser man's Sid Fernandez."

    Although, as good as Leathersich has been striking out batters, he has had his issues, particularly with his control. He has walked 4.9 batters per nine innings during his minor-league career.

    "We'll give him a chance to see if he can get some left-handed hitters out in spring training," manager Terry Collins said. "You look at his numbers, he strikes people out. You look at his minor-league career, he strikes guys out. This isn't the minor leagues. I can clear that up real fast. This is a little different game. They're not going to swing at some of that stuff up here until you show me you can get them out in certain places, then they'll start to chase. But they're going to make you throw the ball over first. So we'll give him the opportunities."
