    Yoga has Twins' Trevor May 'much fresher than ever before'
    by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
    (8:43 pm ET) Twins starting pitcher Trevor May has looked to improve flexibility coming into his competition for a rotation spot this spring by turning to yoga to help repeat his delivery, the Star Tribune reports.

    "I’ve been doing yoga for 30 or 40 minutes every morning, and I’m much fresher than ever before," May said. "Every scouting report I’ve ever seen on myself says, 'Has trouble repeating his delivery.' Well, yoga is literally repeating moves, keeping your body under your control. I do the warrior pose, which is [the same as] striding and throwing a baseball. It has to help."

    May initially struggled in his major-league debut last season, but he hopes the perseverance he showed and his improvements near the end of the season help set him apart in the battle for a rotation spot this spring.

    "Obviously I don’t know exactly what the people who are making decisions are thinking, but showing I can be successful after having my face beat up for two months, showing I can work through it, it’s a trait you have to have," May said. "I take pride in the fact that I didn’t give up. I didn’t let it get me down."


    Twins 1B Joe Mauer happy with 'normal' offseason
    by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
    (8:34 pm ET) Twins first baseman Joe Mauer was happy to have a "normal" offseason after dealing with concussion-like symptoms the previous year, MLB.com reports.

    "I had a very productive offseason," Mauer said Saturday. "The last couple years I had a lot of things to deal with, especially last year with the concussion. I didn't really get a good base heading into the year. I feel great this year and I hope it stays that way."

    Mauer believes that his vigorous stretching exercises this offseason will help keep him healthy in 2015.

    "You have to pay attention to your body. I'm getting older," Mauer said. "I'm finding out what works and doesn't work. Trying to make adjustments."

    Manager Paul Molitor indicated that he's noticed a difference in Mauer this spring.

    "I think it means a lot for him," Molitor said. "I think coming back last year after what had happened the previous season, you always have those questions. He's got friends that have gone through it with Corey Koskie and Justin [Morneau]. We all know how validated our concern is over concussion issues. I'm sure there was a little hesitancy there. Like I said when I had a chance to visit with him this winter, he's excited to be back and not have to be concerned about those type of things."

    Mauer endured a down offensive performance last season, hitting .277/.361/.371 with just four home runs in 455 at-bats.


    Report: Blue Jays sign Dayan Viciedo to minor-league deal
    by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
    (8:27 pm ET) The Blue Jays have signed outfielder Dayan Viciedo to a minor-league deal, FOXSports reports.

    The White Sox designated Viciedo for assignment when the team signed Gordon Beckham and released him after he cleared waivers. Multiple teams reportedly had interest in the outfielder, who hit .231/.281/.405 with 21 home runs and 58 RBI in 523 at-bats last season.

    The Blue Jays are dealing with an injury to left fielder Michael Saunders, but it was announced Friday that Saunders is only expected to miss up to six weeks after initially being thought to be out until the All-Star break. While Saunders is out, Viciedo could figure into the mix in left field if he makes the team's 25-man roster.


    Giants' Madison Bumgarner to take the ball on Tuesday
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (8:08 pm ET) Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner will take the ball when the team opens spring games on Tuesday, according to MLB.com.

    While Bumgarner will start the game, he's only expected to throw one inning. "I'm looking forward to getting out there, facing some hitters and getting back into competition at game speed, playing baseball," Bumgarner said. "But right now, it's just about making sure you're ready to compete whenever the season starts."

    Bumgarner is also expected to start for the team on opening day once the regular season begins. He posted a 2.98 ERA over 217 1/3 innings last year.


    Christian Bergman motivated by Rockies' pitcher signings
    by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
    (8:04 pm ET) Rockies pitcher Christian Bergman chose not to feel slighted when the team added several rotation options this offseason, MLB.com reports.

    "It motivates me in a sense, but when I achieve the goals that I want to achieve, that could go away," Bergman said Saturday. "Then you have to find new motivation. I like to motivate myself with more internal things than what other people say, because that changes -- day to day, even."

    Bergman made three starts and four relief appearances during the Arizona Fall League, going 2-0 with a 4.34 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 18 2/3 innings, and chose to work on elements of his game against the quality competition.

    "I worked on particularly my cutter and curveball, some basic stuff -- particularly getting back on top of the ball, getting everything going downhill," Bergman said.

    Bergman, who missed two months last season due to a broken hand, went 3-5 with a 5.93 ERA and 31:10 K:BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings over 10 starts in 2014.


    Diamondbacks' Jeremy Hellickson dealing with rib cramp
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (7:51 pm ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Jeremy Hellickson had to cut a bullpen session short on Saturday due to a cramp near his ribs, according to MLB.com.

    Hellickson doesn't expect to miss any time due to the issue. "I feel fine. It's more of a cramp than anything. It was a precautionary thing to shut it down," Hellickson said. "It doesn't even hurt right now.

    The team will evaluate Hellickson on Sunday, and that will determine whether he takes any days off. Manager Chip Hale said the team's trainers do not expect Hellickson to miss any time as of right now.

    The 27-year-old posted a 4.52 ERA over 63 2/3 innings last year.


    Tigers to use Kyle Ryan as a reliever this year
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (7:42 pm ET) The Tigers view pitcher Kyle Ryan as a reliever this season, according to MLB.com.

    Ryan pitched five games in relief with the club last year, but made one strong start against the White Sox late in the season. Despite the success in his one start, manager Brad Ausmus said the team will look at Ryan as a reliever. "We're going to use him, at least at the start of Spring Training, out of the 'pen," Ausmus said. 

    Throughout his minor-league career, Ryan was mainly used as a starter. He posted a 2.61 ERA over 10 1/3 innings in the majors last year. 


    Dodgers' Erik Bedard to start spring opener
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (7:35 pm ET) The Dodgers will turn to Erik Bedard during their spring opener on Wednesday against the White Sox, according to MLB.com.

    Bedard isn't expected to open the season in the team's rotation, but should be used as depth in case the club loses a starter at some point. The 35-year-old posted a 4.76 ERA over 75 2/3 innings with the Rays last year.


    Diamondbacks' Tomas to see time at third and in the outfield
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (7:28 pm ET) Diamondbacks infielder Yasmany Tomas will play third and in the outfield this spring, according to MLB.com.

    Tomas has mainly been used as a third baseman early in camp, but has started to shag balls in the outfield during batting practice. The club plans to use Tomas in the outfield once spring games begin. The idea behind the move is to give the Cuban infielder as many at-bats as possible. "We've told Tomas that if there's a day when he is not going to play third, we're going to put him in the outfield just to get at-bats," manager Chip Hale said.

    Tomas was mainly used as an outfielder while in Cuba, but Arizona is attempting to transition him to third. He's looked raw in fielding drills during camp, but both Tomas and Hale remain cautiously optimistic about the move. "It feels like it's been a long time since I played third base, but I like the position and I feel good about it," Tomas said.

    The 24-year-old is expected to earn a starting spot with the club to open the season.


    Yankees' Brendan Ryan (back) making progress
    by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
    (6:57 pm ET) Yankees infielder Brendan Ryan is making progress in his recovery from a strained back muscle, he told MLB.com Saturday.

    "It's no big deal," Ryan said. "I've had a lot more serious issues in my back before. I wasn't too concerned. It being February, let's just make sure."

    Ryan is taking treatment and expects to resume baseball activities next week.

    "I don't know what they're going to allow me to do," Ryan said. "If not batting practice, maybe some baseball stuff. I imagine they might baby-step me into it. We always want to jump right back into it. I'd imagine some dry swings or hit off the tee. We'll see.

    "I don't want to speak for them. That's how I get in trouble."
