    Padres' Black on Morrow: 'We like what we've seen'
    by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
    (6:26 pm ET) Padres manager Bud Black has been impressed by how pitcher Brandon Morrow has handled his various ailments as well as his overall approach to the mound, MLB.com reports.

    "I like his delivery, I like his arm action, I like his stuff," Black said. "First of all, I think he's got a good head. We're still getting to know him. We've only known him less than two weeks. But we like what we've seen."

    Morrow has made just 16 starts across the last two season while dealing with forearm and hand injuries. As a result, he says he's begun doing a "pre-hab" program, which is "basically doing what you're doing in rehab, but doing it before you get hurt."

    Morrow is competing for a rotation spot, but he doesn't look at the early portion of camp as a competion.

    "The last three starts are when it will be more competition mode, I guess," Morrow said. "Right now, I'm still trying to get my arm and body in shape and easing into that. I'm not going to try and go out and blow it out in live batting practice ... Rather than just trying to strike everybody out, I'm going out there and doing some pitching. It's still the same repertoire and still mostly the same approach. But it's taking some speed off here, adding it here."

    Morrow posted ERAs of 5.63 and 5.67 in his last two seasons in Toronto while battling through injuries.


    Cardinals' Carlos Martinez to pitch on Thursday
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (6:22 pm ET) Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez will get the start on Thursday against the Marlins, according to MLB.com.

    Martinez is expected to throw around 40 pitches during the start. The club is hoping Martinez goes two innings. Martinez prepared for the start by throwing two simulated innings against the Cardinals on Monday. Martinez, who is competing for the fifth spot in the rotation, said he just needs to go out and perform. 

    "I need to go out and perform," he said. "I'm going to keep focused and have the same mentality to do my best even though it's the first [start]. Every time I take the mound, I'm going to feel like it's the last one."

    Martinez, 23, posted a 4.03 ERA over 89 1/3 innings last year. 


    White Sox prospect Courtney Hawkins taking it slow this spring
    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (6:19 pm ET) White Sox prospect Courtney Hawkins is hoping to make an impact for the club at some point, but he knows it won't happen overnight, according MLB.com.

    "My only job is to go out every day and play to the best of my ability. That's what they got me here to do."

    Hawkins feels like he has the patience to wait until his number gets called to the big leagues.

    "When I first got drafted, I definitely thought that I had to get there fast. I had to do something more," Hawkins said. "I feel like right now, as long as I do what I'm supposed to do and play the game I know I'm able to play and they know I'm able to play, I feel like it's going to come on its own, and that's what they wanted out of me.


    Yankees' Rothschild impressed with Jacob Lindgren
    by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
    (6:17 pm ET) Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said Monday that he's been impressed with pitching prospect Jacob Lindgren so far and that he has the ability to get outs at the major-league level right now, NJ.com reports.

    Rothschild said that Lindgren has to try not to be "too fine" with his location. Dubbed "The Strikeout Factory" by Yankees officials, the pitcher struck out 48 batters in 24 2/3 innings across four levels after being selected in the second round of the 2014 MLB Draft.


    Astros' Luis Cruz hoping to throw on Tuesday

    (6:09 pm ET) Astros pitcher Luis Cruz is hoping to throw a bullpen session on Tuesday, according to the Houston Chronicle

    Cruz jammed his fingers while fielding a ground ball on Friday, but wasn't expected to miss much time. 


    Astros' Brad Peacock to throw live batting practice in 8-10 days
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (6:04 pm ET) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock is hoping to throw live batting practice in 8-10 days, according to the Houston Chronicle. 

    Peacock had offseason hip surgery, but has been able to take part in bullpen sessions. He's still a bit behind the other pitchers in camp, but the team is aiming for mid-March for his first batting practice. Manager A.J. Hinch said Peacock will need to throw a few of those before he's ready for game action.

    The 27-year-old Peacock posted a 4.72 ERA over 131 2/3 innings last season. 


    Astros' Hinch expecting Roberto Hernandez to report this week
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (5:52 pm ET) Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Monday he is expecting starting pitcher Roberto Hernandez to report for camp this week, per MLB.com. He has been away from camp while trying to obtain a work visa.

    "I'm expecting him to get here this week," Hinch said. "Games start. He has a locker. He's assured me he's throwing bullpen and he's ready to go.

    "No visa problems, it's just taking a long time. He's going to have no problem getting a visa. We signed him late and he has a lengthy process to go through. We're hopeful. We can't wait to see him."


    Braves pitcher Tyrell Jenkins turning heads in the front office
    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (5:50 pm ET) Braves pitching prospect Tyrell Jenkins is showing flashes of what he can be for the team in spring training. Manager Fredi Gonzalez made a point to see Jenkins throw against hitters for the first time Monday, according to MLB.com.

    "He's been everything he's been advertised as being," Gonzalez said. "He's a tremendous young man. He's been really impressive with his work ethic and the whole deal."

    Jenkins was traded from the Cardinals as a part of the deal that sent Jason Heyward to St. Louis. 

    "I'm not trying to do too much, just trying to fit in with the guys and not stand out in a negative way," Jenkins said. "I want to stand out on the field with my play and in the locker room with my work ethic and character. I'm glad to be here. Wherever I go or whatever happens, I'm just eager to see what happens this year."


    D-Backs' David Peralta looks to make a bigger impact in 2015
    (5:45 pm ET) After a solid rookie year in 2014, Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta is working to make an even bigger impact this season.

    When the 2014 season ended, he returned to his home in Venezuela to play more baseball.
    He spent his time there trying to improve his hitting against left-handed pitchers. He batted only .197 against lefties as a rookie.

    "I know I had a good season, but I need to get better and I wanted to work to get better," Peralta said of his decision to play winter ball, per MLB.com. "I like to get better and learn something every day. So I went there to learn something, to get better and to get more at-bats. This year, my goal is to be an everyday player, and I feel like I'm ready to go now."

    Peralta will battle Endier Inciarte for playing time in left field this spring.

    "He is a big part of our plans," general manager Dave Stewart said of Peralta. "Those are the kind of guys that you have to like, guys that want to keep getting better. He didn't rest on the fact that he had a good season at the big league level, and says he wants to go back and keep working on his skills and get better."


    Royals' Hunter Dozier ready for bounce season in 2015
    by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
    (5:45 pm ET) Royals prospect Hunter Dozier had a 2014 season to forget. Kansas City's top pick in the 2013 MLB Draft hit .209/.303/.312 in 64 games at Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

    "I think it would have happened anywhere, whether I was at high-A ball or Double-A," he said to MLB.com. "For some reason, I just started overthinking everything. I started looking for changeups when I shouldn't have. I should have just stayed with my normal routine."

    It was the first significant time in his career that Dozier experienced struggles at the plate.

    "It's good that I went through it," Dozier said. "Now I know how to snap out of one of those slumps. I know that I shouldn't change anything like my approach -- just stay with it, stay with the routine."
