    Three scoreless innings for Aaron Nola in Phillies' spring debut
    by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
    (12:12 am ET) Phillies pitching prospect Aaron Nola had three scoreless innings in his spring debut on Friday. 

    Nola was the seventh overall pick in the 2014 draft out of LSU. 

    He entered in the second inning and struck out four in three five-hit innings. Three of the hits came in the first five batters Nola faced, but he settled down. 

    "There was some nerves and some butterflies," Nola said, per the Philadelphia Daily News, "but it was a cool experience for me."

    "I like everything about him," manager Ryne Sandberg said. "I thought he responded well, I really did. His composure was good. He threw strikes. He made some adjustments early. He was probably a little pumped-up the first couple pitches, because he's a command guy down in the zone. I've seen him on the minor league side that way. He made some adjustments there."


    Rangers pitcher Tanner Scheppers headed for bullpen role
    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (12:03 am ET) Rangers pitcher Tanner Scheppers is likely to end up pitching out of the bullpen in 2015, reports MLB.com.

    Scheppers, who spent 2014 as a starter, struggled with injuries and will likely be the set-up in the eighth inning.

    "We talked to him about what his role is right now," manager Jeff Banister said. "He is pitching significant innings at the back end of the game. We are looking for Tanner to be one of our guys, along with Neftali to lock down the game and help us win the games we are supposed to win."

    Scheppers is still building back his arm strength and is hoping to regain a bigger role with the club at some point.

    "Of course I have big expectations for myself," Scheppers said. "If you're in the big leagues, you want to be a big key on the team you are playing on. But I have found out the hard way that if you look too far ahead, you get excited and then have a setback, it brings you back to earth."


    Madison Bumgarner fans 11 in Giants' minor league game
    by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
    (12:00 am ET) Madison Bumgarner through six scoreless innings in a minor league game for the Giants on Friday.

    Bumgarner struck out 11 and allowed just two hits. 

    "I feel good about it," Bumgarner said, per MLB.com's William Boor. "I made a lot of good pitches today. There weren't that many that were bad I felt like. I felt dang good about it."


    Angels prospect Roberto Baldoquin showing he belongs
    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (3/27/2015) Angels prospect Roberto Baldoquin is still getting used to being in the United States. But the Cuban-born player is proving to his team he belongs in the big leagues, reports MLB.com.

    Baldoquin hit a towering home run Friday, showing Angels management just another tool in his arsenal.

    "He's 20, we're going to take our time with him -- but he has some things that you just can't teach," general manager Jerry Dipoto said of Baldoquin, who will start the season at one of the Class-A levels. "He has soft, quick hands, he has great feet, and he has a wonderful internal clock on the field."

    Manager Mike Scioscia loves what he's seen from the 20-year-old so far this spring.

    "We've worked him out; he's got a nice approach to the ball, has a real easy, fluid swing," Scioscia said. "That ball jumped out of his bat."


    Giants' Jake Peavy adds new pitch mid-game
    by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
    (3/27/2015) Giants pitcher Jake Peavy began throwing a new pitch in his most-recent start, in the middle of the game. 

    Peavy began throwing a four-seam changeup, a pitch he'd never even tried to throw before he was on the mound in a spring game. 

    "It's unlike anything I've ever thrown before," Peavy said, per MLB.com's Barry Bloom. "The first five I threw bounced to the plate, they were about 50 feet."

    By the time he left the game, he was already recording strikeouts with the new pitch. 

    "It just got better as the game went on," said Peavy. "I'm excited about it. I'm excited to have this time to work on a little bit of everything."


    Yankees' Stephen Drew starts to emerge from slump
    by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
    (3/27/2015) Yankees infielder Stephen Drew went three for three on Friday, which is a significant bright spot in what's been a tough spring. 

    Prior to Friday's game, Drew only had six hits all spring. The 3-for-3 game boosted his average from .167 to .231. 

    "He's swung the bat better the last two weeks," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said, per MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. "The one thing you want is you want a lineup that there's pressure on the pitcher of the opposing team the entire time, and I feel that we have that type of lineup that we can do that, where so much pressure doesn't fall on a couple of guys."


    Yangervis Solarte can play anywhere, do anything for Padres
    by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
    (3/27/2015) Padres utilty man Yangervis Solarte will be in the lineup most days. He just doesn't know where. 

    "Every day, it's a new place," he said per MLB.com's Corey Brock. "And that's good for me. I can play everywhere. That's a good situation. I can do everything. The more positions I can play, the better it is for me. I think that it can help me and help the team."

    "We feel good about Solarte in there," said manager Bud Black.

    Solarate has started at three infield positions this spring and is hitting .295. 

    "Overall, he's done a nice job moving around the diamond," Black said. "The versatility he brings is very advantageous for us. He brings some offense, some durability."


    Paulo Orlando, Moises Sierra battling for last Royals' roster spot
    by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
    (3/27/2015) The last man on the Royals' roster will be either Paulo Orlando or Moises Sierra . The two are battling for the fifth outfielder spot. 

    With just over a week to go in spring training, Orlando seems to have the advantage.

    "He's done everything well. He plays solid defense in all three outfielder spots. He's a true center fielder," manager Ned Yost said, per MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan. "He's swinging the bat really well. He has made great strides the last couple of years. He's athletic and can run. He fits our profile."

    Orlando is hitting .367 this spring, 47 points higher than Sierra. 


    Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray trying to find change-up
    by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
    (3/27/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Robbie Ray has spent the spring trying to improve his breaking ball. In the process, he lost his change-up. 

    "It'll come back," Ray said, per Nick Piecoro of AZCentral.com. "I threw it (Thursday) and it's already starting to come back. I just have to throw it more."

    Ray changed the finger position on his change-up grip to help get it back to its previous effectiveness. 

    "Granted, yeah, I've lost a little touch for my change-up, but the slider is where it needs to be right now," he said. "I feel like I can always find the change-up. I've had it for so long. It's a matter of two bullpens and then maybe a game and I'll have it back. But I definitely feel like I'm in a better place right now."


    Homer Bailey pitches three innings in Reds' minor league game
    by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
    (3/27/2015) Homer Bailey continued his return from elbow surgery with a three-inning outing in a Reds' minor league game on Friday. 

    Bailey had surgery last September on a torn flexor mass tendon near his elbow.

    Bailey allowed one run on three hits, walking two and striking out four. He threw 41 pitches, 25 for strikes. 

    "I think Homer's first inning he was up (in the strike zone)," said Reds manager Bryan Price, per MLB.com's Mark Sheldon. "He made a good adjustment going into the second inning and threw the ball much better. I thought he looked terrific."

    Bailey also pitched three innings in a minor league game last Sunday. He'll start again on April 1.
