Astros pitcher Mark Appel to start year in Double-A Corpus Christi
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:06 pm ET) Astros pitching prospect Mark Appel is expected to begin the season with Double-A Corpus Christi, reports the Houston Chronicle.

Appel, who was the team's 2013 No. 1 pick, has yet to pitch in the majors.


Report: Mets place Cesar Puello on waivers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:53 pm ET) The Mets have placed outfield prospect Cesar Puello on waivers, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

Puello isn't in line to make the Opening Day roster and is out of options, so he'll need to pass through waivers before the team can send him to the minors. He went 9 for 36 with no extra-base hits this spring.


Athletics' Jesse Chavez hints he's headed to the bullpen
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:35 pm ET) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez told reporters that "the writing is on the wall" and indicated that he'll likely start the season in the bullpen.

"I think they had their minds made up from the beginning. But we'll see what happens," Chavez said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Chavez allowed one run on three hits and one walk while striking out six over six innings of work on Wednesday against the Angels. He posted a 4.50 ERA, a 1.75 WHIP and 12:4 K:BB ratio over 16 innings this spring. If he is demoted to the bullpen as a long reliever and spot starter, the A's will likely go will left-hander Drew Pomeranz as their fifth starter.


Brewers choose to have Michael Blazek open season in bullpen
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:33 pm ET) Brewers pitcher Michael Blazek has won a spot in the bullpen to open the season, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Blazek was being stretched out this spring in prep for a starting assignment at Triple-A Colorado Springs, but he pitched so well the team opted to keep him on the roster.

“I don’t think it has completely hit me yet,” Blazek said Wednesday. “It probably won’t until I get (to Milwaukee). We’re still in spring training so I’ve still got that mind set.”

Blazek has held opponents to a .226 average and has struck out 18 batters in 17 1/3 innings this spring.

“They just said as of right now, you’re coming up there with us,” he said. “That’s all I really needed to hear. I know I’m going to be somewhere in the 'pen. I’m going to keep the same mind set and take it one day at a time.”


Athletics OF Josh Reddick feels fine after minor-league at-bats
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:32 pm ET) Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Wednesday that outfielder Josh Reddick took three at-bats in a minor-league game Tuesday and felt fine physically, MLB.com reports.

Reddick is recovering from an oblique injury that will cause him to open the season on the 15-day disabled list, but he may be able to return soon after the season begins.


Athletics hoping Coco Crisp (elbow) can play Opening Day
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:25 pm ET) The Athletics remain hopeful that outfielder Coco Crisp (elbow) will be healthy enough to play Opening Day, MLB.com reports.

"I think it depends on how he feels tomorrow," manager Bob Melvin said Wednesday. "I think it's going to be a pretty good indication on what we need to do."

Melvin said that Crisp was sore Wednesday, and the team will decide Thursday if he'll need to open the season on the disabled list. It's possible he'll play during the team's three-game Bay Bridge Series against the Giants, starting Thursday.

"He's really the one guy on our team that we're not worried too much about at-bats," Melvin said. "If he could play in the Bay Bridge Series, we'd be good with that. Whether he's not, I really don't know yet."

If Crisp does open the season on the disabled list, the Athletics will likely carry outfielder Billy Burns on the Opening Day roster.


Mets SP Bartolo Colon finishes spring 0-3 with 7.02 ERA
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:24 pm ET) Mets starting pitcher Bartolo Colon took the hill Wednesday against the Cardinals for one final spring outing before he starts in the season opener Monday against the Nationals. Colon allowed three runs on six hits and one walk in five innings. He struck out two in a 5-4 loss.

Colon finishes the spring with a 0-3 record and 7.02 ERA. He went 1-4 with a 4.50 ERA in five starts against the Nationals last season.


Tigers' Kyle Ryan coughs up three runs in two innings vs. Astros
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:23 pm ET) Tigers pitcher Kyle Ryan got the start and logged two innings of work Wednesday night against the Astros. Ryan, who is competing for a bullpen role, allowed three runs -- two earned -- on four hits and no walks while striking out two in a 3-2 defeat.

Ryan owns a 6.23 ERA this spring. If he fails to break camp with the club, he'll be inserted in the Triple-A rotation.

"I know there's a chance," Ryan said, per MLive.com. "All I can do is go out there and be myself and do what I do."


Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison tosses three scoreless innings
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:20 pm ET) Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison allowed three hits and one walk in three scoreless innings while striking out one in his team's 9-7 win over the Red Sox Wednesday.

Hutchison's fine spring finale gives him a 1.50 ERA and 12:5 K:BB ratio in 18 spring innings. His next start will come against the Yankees Monday on Opening Day.


Cardinals' Carlos Martinez throws six scoreless in final spring start
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:17 pm ET) Cardinals starting pitcher Carlos Martinez threw very well in his final Grapefruit League start Wednesday against the Mets. The right-hander threw six scoreless innings, allowing three hits and one walk. He struck out five in a 5-4 win. 

Martinez allowed just three singles Wednesday. He finishes the spring with a 2.86 ERA in six outings (five starts). Martinez allowed just one run over his final three outings (14 innings).

Martinez will make his first start of the season April 11 against the Reds.
