    Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts: 'Strongest I've ever felt'
    by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
    (2:57 pm ET) Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts has been working out at the EXOS performance institute in Arizona, the facility where second baseman Dustin Pedroia trains every offseason. ESPN.com says Bogaerts feels he's pushed himself more than ever before, "and the results are showing."

    "This is probably the strongest I’ve ever felt going into a season -- and by far,” Bogaerts said, via the website. “I’m definitely real excited for the season.”

    Bogaerts, 22, had an up-and-down 2014 season, his first full year in the majors. He finished at .240 with 12 homers and 46 RBI in 144 games.

    He'll spend a few more weeks training in Arizona before reporting to spring training.

    “I kind of never challenged my body to lift heavier weights because I’ve always tried to kind of maintain the same,” Bogaerts said. “Getting the knowledge from those kind of guys and just trusting the whole system that they have over there and just pushing your body, it’s really a difference than any years I’ve had in the past.

    “It was mostly gym and conditioning and speed and stuff like that, power and speed. It was definitely something that I really enjoyed.”

    by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

    Beckham spent more than five seasons with the White Sox. He is a career .245 hitter and is expected to play in a utility role. To make room for Beckham, the team designated Dayan Viciedo for assignment.


    Masahiro Tanaka says his elbow feels good
    by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
    (1:17 pm ET) Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka told the Japan Times that his elbow feels fine as he prepares for spring training, per The Star-Ledger. Tanaka has a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament that could eventually require Tommy John surgery.

    Tanaka missed more than two months last season due to the injury. After the layoff, he was able to make two starts toward the end of the season and finished 13-5 with a 2.77 ERA.

    "So far, so good -- including that [elbow]," Tanaka said.

    The Yankees signed Tanaka last offseason to a seven-year, $155 million contract.

    by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

    The deal includes an invite to spring training. Baker will be given an opportunity to compete for the backup catching position. In 2014, Baker hit .192 with no home runs and 15 RBI in 182 at-bats.


    Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela expected to be ready for spring training
    by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
    (11:15 am ET) Indians third base prospect Giovanny Urshela, who sprained a knee ligament in a Venezuelan winter league game in November, should be ready for spring training, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Urshela, 23, is considered the most skilled defensive third baseman in the organization.

    He likely will begin the season at Triple-A Columbus, but "could get a look" if Lonnie Chisenhall falters, the paper said.


    Report: Nationals sign pitcher Casey Janssen to one-year contract
    by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

    Hector Neris considered a 'sleeper' to make Phils' bullpen
    by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
    (10:41 am ET) Coming off an outstanding performance in the Dominican Winter League, reliever Hector Neris is a "sleeper candidate" to earn a spot in the Phillies' bullpen, reports Philly.com. Neris, 25, did not give up a run in 18 innings during the league's regular season, then allowed two runs in 8 1/3 postseason innings.

    “It will be interesting to see who kind of takes the bull by the horns,” Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. told the website. “We’re going to give some people opportunities to pitch, and typically what happens is the guy that’s performing the best and the guy that’s throwing the most consistently toward the end of spring, those are the guys that will make the club.”

    Neris made his major-league debut last August, earning a win with one scoreless inning. That was his only appearance with the Phils.

    by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

    In 2014, Gee went 7-8 with a 4.00 ERA. The Mets are less than a month away from spring training and are also believed to be hesitant to depart with any of their starting pitchers.

    by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
