by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:27 pm ET) White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers has seven hits over his last 16 Cactus League at-bats. When asked about his bat coming alive as of late, he said: "Just better timing, rhythm and tempo. That's the gist of it. There's no story line," per Chicago Sun-Times.

Flowers hit .214 last season for the White Sox. He is batting .233 (10 for 43) with three doubles, three homers and six RBI in 16 Cactus League games.


Cardinals' Garcia starts playing catch, aims to throw off mound soon
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:26 pm ET) Cardinals starting pitcher Jaime Garcia, who is on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation, began playing catch Wednesday, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Garcia is aiming to start throwing off a mound next week.

Garcia added he will build up to throwing 80 pitches before he will likely begin a minor-league rehab assignment.

"We're trying to make sure the inflammation is reduced and try to get there as quick and safe as possible," said Garcia, who had thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in July to address a nerve problem affecting his shoulder. "Whatever (the medical staff) has written down, we're just going to take it one day at a time."

Garcia indicated Wednesday the plan was for him to miss the first month of the season coming off surgery.

"Originally, the plan was for me to ready by the end of April or early May," Garcia said. "But by the fact that things were going so well, we moved things ahead a little  bit."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"I'm ready," Weaver said. "It's going to be fun to pitch under the lights again, obviously not in the first game, but it's nice to get that atmosphere back again. Get back out there and start a fresh season again. It's going to be fun."
