Orioles' Hunter Harvey returns to mound in extended spring
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(9:23 pm ET) Orioles' pitcher Hunter Harvey has reached another milestone in his return from a fracture in his fibula.

Harvey is ready to return to the mound this week. Some reports had him pitching three innings in an extended spring training game on Tuesday, while others said he would pitch three innings on Wednesday. 


Twins OF Eddie Rosario to wait at least another day for first start
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(9:03 pm ET) Twins outfielder Eddie Rosario, who was called up from Triple-A on Monday, was not in Tuesday's starting lineup and will have to wait at least another day to get his first major-league start, reports MLB.com.

Twins manager Paul Molitor said he wanted to give Rosario another day to get acclimated.

"A lot of times you'd like to get them out there as quick as you can, but I talked to my coaches last night and we decided to sleep on it and give it another day," Molitor said. "I like the way the lineup looked last night."

Rosario missed the first 50 games of last season after a second positive test for a drug of abuse.

The 23-year old said he's been working to show better discipline at the plate after swinging wildly at the start of the year.

"That was the main thing for me," he said. "Now I have more discipline."

Rosario was hitting .242 with one triple, two doubles, three home runs and 12 RBI in 23 games in Triple-A.


Rangers' Rougned Odor working on approach at the plate
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:48 pm ET) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor is trying to work out some of the kinks in his swing after starting off the year with a .146 average, according to MLB.com.

Odor returned to the lineup Tuesday after getting the day off Monday to work on some of the issues he's been having.

"We saw some things in the workout today that we liked in his bat path and direction," manager Jeff Banister said. "A very simple fundamental drill and it was an eye-opener for him. He could see the direction of his bat path was very pulled-oriented. He was able to work through the drill, go into the batting cage and put it in play."

Odor remains confident in his swing despite the struggles.

"I feel like I'm a little late and missing my pitch," Odor said. "My confidence is good, I always have confidence."


Braves' Mike Foltynewicz needs to improve speed to plate
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8:46 pm ET) After giving up five stolen bases to Cincinnati in his first start, Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz will need to improve his delivery speed for his next start. 

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said that Foltynewicz was taking 1.8 seconds to deliver pitches, almost a half a second longer than average. 

"We need to clean that up a little bit because we don’t want it to be a track meet," Gonzalez said, per the Journal Constitution.


Athletics' Tyler Clippard wants more work
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8:21 pm ET) Athletics closer Tyler Clippard hasn't had many save opportunities this season. He's appeared in just 10 of the team's first 27 games, and just three have been save opportunities.

"I’m surprised at how much I’ve pitched so far,"’ Clippard said, per the Inside the A's blog. "I’m used to pitching a lot, and I like it. It’s been a fluky season for us so for. We’ve won by a lot, we lost by a lot. It’s been a weird year. It’s different not pitching. You get anxious out there, wondering when it will happen. You don’t want frustrations to build up. As much as possible you want to keep on an even keel, and it becomes difficult."

 


Tim Stauffer playing catch for Twins, Casey Fien still waiting
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8:15 pm ET) Twins pitcher Tim Stauffer, on the 15-day disabled list with a strained intercostal, has taken a step toward returning. 

GM Terry Ryan said that Stauffer has started playing catch, per MLB.com

The news on Casey Fien, disabled with a shoulder injury, wasn't as good. Fien still hasn't begun throwing, Ryan said.

Pagan said he got his left middle fingernail "cracked pretty good" when spiked in Monday's game. He was able to pick up two singles early in the game before finishing the night 2 for 4 at the plate.

Pagan has hit .350/.373/.447 with eight RBI and three stolen bases in 103 at-bats.
