    Marlins delay Giancarlo Stanton's spring debut until Thursday
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (10:07 am ET) The Marlins opted to push back outfielder Giancarlo Stanton's spring debut to Thursday. Stanton, who hasn't played since getting hit in the face in September, was originally scheduled to face the University of Miami in an exhibition game Tuesday.

    "It just made more sense -- he can get more at-bats on the backfield," manager Mike Redmond said, per The Miami Herald. "We have simulated games going on back there. So, it just made more sense for him instead of going over there for one at-bat, keep him back here and he can get more at-bats and more work done back here and then he'll be ready to roll for Thursday."


    Reports: Mets eyeing third game of season for Matt Harvey's debut
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (9:52 am ET) It appears the Mets are leaning toward having starting pitcher Matt Harvey, who has not pitched in a regular season game since Aug. 2013 due to Tommy John surgery, make his season debut in the third game at Washington, several team sources told the New York Post.

    The Mets are targeting the third game on the road, as opposed to the season and home openers, because they don't want Harvey to feel added pressure given the circumstances, particularly if he makes his first start in front of an exhilarated home crowd.

    "All that has been discussed,’’ one source said.

    “Things can change, but that schedule makes sense,’’ another source said.

    Harvey seems fine with whatever the Mets have in store.

    “Anything they want to do is good,’’ Harvey said.


    Phillies' Harang opts to skip spring debut Wednesday
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (9:41 am ET) Phillies starting pitcher Aaron Harang was scratched from his spring debut Wednesday against the Yankees.

    Although Harang had an ice pack on his lower back Tuesday, according to The News Journal, he told reporters he will miss Wednesday's start because he needs to work on his mechanics and is not ready to pitch in a game. Harang added he does intend to be ready the next time his turn in the rotation comes up. 

    Harang dodged questions about his back issues, but he did mention he went to see a chiropractor a few days ago to get his back realigned.

    Kevin Slowey will start in Harang's place Wednesday.

    Pirates' Cumpton to meet with Dr. Andrews concerning elbow issue
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (9:31 am ET) Pirates pitcher Brandon Cumpton is slated to meet with Dr. James Andrews on Monday after feeling discomfort in his elbow, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Cumpton first noticed an issue when he was throwing live batting practice last week.

    Pirates 1B Corey Hart expects to make spring debut by Monday
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (9:27 am ET) Pirates first baseman Corey Hart suffered a laceration on his foot near the arch when he stepped on a loose hot tub filter, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Hart, however, expects to make his spring debut by Monday.

    Manager Clint Hurdle revealed Monday that Hart needed three stitches to close the wound. He also mentioned Hart would be sidelined for a few days.


    Report: Twins working on contract extension for Brian Dozier
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (9:23 am ET) The Twins are working on signing second baseman Brian Dozier to a contract extension, according to the Pioneer Press. There were strong indications Tuesday the Twins were making progress with Dozier's agent -- Damon Lapa -- and a contract extension could be close to being finalized, a source said.

    “I’d love to be here,” said Dozier, who declined to comment on the negotiations. “I don’t want to be anywhere else. If the opportunity presents itself, then I’m all for it. We’ll see.”

    Dozier is not arbitration eligible until after the 2015 season. If he does sign a contract extension, it will likely run through all three of his arbitration years and likely 1-2 free agent years.

    Dozier tied a career high with 33 doubles in 2014, but he did finish with a career-best 23 home runs. He also had a career-high 21 stolen bases and 112 runs.


    Tigers' Victor Martinez: I'm still on track for opening day
    by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
    (9:13 am ET) Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez told reporters he remains on track to play on opening day, according to the Detroit Free Press.

    Martinez, who is working his way back from a medial menisectomy in his left knee, revealed that he suffered the injury while playing catch in the street with his brother in February. He took 25 swings off a tee from each of the plate on Monday, and told reporters he would have taken 50 if the team trainer wasn't around.

    The 36-year-old hit .335/.409/.565 over 561 at-bats last year.


    Red Sox looking at Brandon Workman as a reliever
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (1:12 am ET) The Red Sox are looking at pitcher Brandon Workman as a reliever this spring, according to the Boston Herald

    Manager John Farrell seemed to think Workman would be more than adequate in the role. "His mentality is one that embraces those higher leverage type of innings," Farrell said. "In one-inning stints, his stuff plays up a little bit more with power, a little bit more swing-and-miss ability with his fastball."

    Workman seems open to the change. "If John tells me that’s where I’m going to fit in, that’s where I’ll fit in," he said.

    The 26-year-old Workman posted a 5.17 ERA over 87 innings last year. 


    Twins' GM believes Kyle Gibson can get to the next level
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (12:44 am ET) Twins general manager Terry Ryan believes pitcher Kyle Gibson can get to the next level, according to the Star Tribune.

    "The guy has too good of stuff not to be more consistent," Ryan said. "I don’t think it’s 'if' he makes another jump. He’s going to make a jump. It’s a matter of how high."

    Gibson showed flashes of promise in 2014. While his overall numbers were just average, Gibson was solid during the first half of the year. He posted a 3.92 ERA over 101 innings to start the year, but struggled with a 5.17 ERA in the second half. Gibson said the reason for his success last year had to do with execution.

    "The reason for the jump was my focus on executing pitches," Gibson said. "In 2013 I got caught up in all the information and the scouting reports instead of realizing this is the pitch I need to execute so let’s execute it."

    Gibson said he's hoping to increase his strikeout rate this season, but wants to make sure he can still retain his strong ground ball rate. The 27-year-old posted a 4.47 ERA over 179 1/3 innings last season.
