    Mets' Juan Lagares (elbow) to start against Braves on Wednesday
    by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
    (4:43 pm ET) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares will make the trip to Orlando and start in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves, according to ESPN New York. 

    Lagares will not play in Tuesday's instrasquad scrimmage, however. 

    Lagares sprained his elbow and had to be shut down near the end of the 2014 season. Though there are concerns about his injury popping back up, everything appears to be OK with Lagares for the time being. 


    White Sox's John Danks to start Thursday vs Dodgers
    by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
    (4:37 pm ET) White Sox pitcher John Danks will start Thursday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers, according to the Chicago Sun Times

    Last Friday, Danks said his shoulder, which was operated on in 2012, was feeling better. In 2014, Danks went 11-11 and posted a 4.74 ERA and a 129:74 K:BB ratio in 193 2/3 innings pitched. 


    Brewers' Roenicke working on ways to get Gerardo Parra into lineup
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (4:35 pm ET) Brewers outfielder Gerardo Parra seems fine with his role as a reserve outfielder, despite being a Gold-Glove-caliber defender.

    "No, I'm happy," he said of his situation, per MLB.com. "I don't think nothing like that, like we have a lot of outfielders. The only thing is working and playing every day and doing my job.

    "I say again, if I don't play every day, I won't feel bad. If I do play every day, I will be happy too. My job is to play baseball in a Milwaukee uniform to do the best I can."

    Brewers manager Ron Roenicke loves Parra's attitude. He added since Parra can play all three outfield positions, he will do his best to work Parra into the lineup.

    "He's really got a great attitude, but he wants to be out there," Roenicke said. "In my mind, if I had got him 200 at-bats this year, he'd be disappointed. He's a better player than that and we need to get him out there.

    "I told you guys before, usually when you give your three guys a day off, it's because they really need to have it, but it's not that way with Parra because, for me, Parra is a starter. So I consider him a guy that, if the matchups are good for him, he's going to be in the game. I'm not waiting for somebody to be tired and has to have a day off. It's going to be different with him."


    White Sox P Jose Quintana set to start Wednesday
    by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
    (4:32 pm ET) The White Sox have named pitcher Jose Quintana their starter for Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers, according to the Chicago Sun Times

    Brad Penny, Tyler Danish, Nolan Sanburn and Zach Putnam are also slated to pitch in Wednesday's game. In 2014, Quintana went 9-11 and posted a 3.32 ERA. 


    Rays' Archer aims to refine changeup during spring training
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (4:27 pm ET) Rays starting pitcher Chris Archer is working this spring to refine his changeup and improve against the running game, per MLB.com.

    "Last year at the end of spring training, I felt completely comfortable throwing my changeup," Archer said. "But when there are runners on base and it was a changeup situation, I didn't feel comfortable going to that because my other two pitches are my bread and butter.

    "Hopefully I can get to the point where I can have my three pitches. Throw my slider less and my changeup more. That makes my slider better because they see it less frequently."

    Rays manager Kevin Cash is all for Archer working on his changeup.

    "It can be another weapon," Cash said. "He's got such a great feel with the other two, I don't think him working on a changeup or focusing on it a little bit more during spring training is going to hurt anything."


    Jackson, Wood among five vying for final spot in Cubs' rotation
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (4:21 pm ET) With Cubs manager Joe Maddon indicating Monday that Kyle Hendricks has a spot in the rotation locked up behind Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta and Jason Hammel, that leaves Travis Wood, Edwin JacksonFelix Doubront, Jacob Turner and Tsuyoshi Wada vying for the final spot in the team's rotation.

    “Everybody understands what’s going on here. There are no dummies," Maddon said, per MLB.com. “The line I like is that, I’m not going to lie to you. If I tell you the truth, you might be upset with me for about a week or two but then you’re going to be OK. But if I lie to you, you’re going to hate me forever.

    “They’re very competitive and the fact we have a lot of folks for some really narrow choices, it’s going to be an interesting spring. I know that competition normally brings out the best in everyone.”


    Tigers DH Victor Martinez puts in rehab work
    by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
    (4:20 pm ET) Coming off an injured knee, Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez was able to put in some work during Monday's spring training practice. 

    According to the Detroit Free Press, Martinez ran on an anti-gravity treadmill and took 30 swings from each side on a batting tee. 

    Martinez underwent medial menisectomy surgery on his left knee on Feb. 10, which has a four-to-six week recovery period. Martinez was asked to report late to camp so that he could ensure his knee was in shape. 


    Rockies' Weiss: DJ LeMahieu is going to get better offensively
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (4:14 pm ET) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu is hoping the offseason work he put in to increase his speed will pay dividends on offense this season, particularly legging out more extra-base hits, per MLB.com.

    "We were doing sprints early in the offseason and by February I was much, much faster," LeMahieu said. "We'll see how that translates, but I accomplished my goal."

    Rockies manager Walt Weiss is expecting LeMahieu to improve offensively.

    "He's a guy that's going to get better and better offensively," Weiss said. "I've talked about his feel for the game and that's going to play into his offense. You're going to see his on-base [.314 career] creep up. He's going to slug more than he has [.361 career] -- not homers, but there are doubles there."


    Orioles' Showalter indicates Gonzalez might be ready for 200 innings
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (4:01 pm ET) Orioles manager Buck Showalter said starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez is in good shape at the start of spring training, per MASNsports.com.

    "I don't know if you all tapped on him, but he's like a rock," Showalter said. "He's got a goal of pitching 200 innings this year because that's been the one kind of bugaboo on him. Miggy's not the type of guy to talk about this, but his whole offseason he spent a lot of time with (vice president of baseball operations) Brady (Anderson). I hit him the other day and it was like hitting a rock. His body fat is actually down and his weight's up.

    "The wear and tear, he's always had a couple spots where he's needed a DL period or miss a start. He's very upfront. If you know Miggy's personality, it's not like he's shirking a responsibility. If we can stay away from that, he could go to another level physically. He's done everything he can to be there for us every fifth day.

    "He was pretty good last year, but the one thing he's missing is that durability."


    Orioles P Bud Norris gunning for 200 innings in 2015
    by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
    (4:00 pm ET) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris has set a goal of pitching 200 innings for the first time in his career, according to MLB.com. 

    Monday marked Norris' 30th birthday and he's yet to reach that benchmark in his career. A year ago, Norris notched 165 1/3 innings a year ago. 

    "I felt I was in the best shape of my life last year, and I can say the same thing this year," Norris said. "I feel a little bit better, actually. Going out there consistently every five days and putting up innings is really what it's all about."
