    Pirates GM: Jung Ho Kang will be on our Opening Day roster
    by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
    (9:30 am ET) Pirates general manager Neal Huntington told reporters that he still plans to have Jung Ho Kang on the Opening Day roster, despite his recent struggles this spring, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

    Manager Clint Hurdle indicated last week that Kang's timing issues at the plate may have to do with his leg kick that begins his swing. Kang, who spent his previous nine baseball seasons in the Korean Baseball Organization, is hitting .111 in 11 Grapefruit League games.


    Jose Tabata among 12 players cut from Pirates camp Friday
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (9:28 am ET) The Pirates announced Friday they cut 12 players from major-league camp. 

    They optioned Bobby LaFromboise to Triple-A, while reassigning Deolis Guerra, Gorkys Hernandez, Charlie Leesman, Brad Lincoln, Steve LombardozziBrent Morel, Gustavo Nunez , Deibinson Romero, Jose Tabata, Sebastian Valle and Josh Wall to minor-league camp.


    Twins' Josmil Pinto (concussion): I'm cleared for 'everything'
    by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
    (9:23 am ET) Twins catcher Josmil Pinto told reporters he had been cleared to do "everything" in terms of baseball activity, but isn't sure when he'll see game action, per the Pioneer Press.

    Pinto suffered concussion-like symptoms after he was hit on the back of the head three times by an Adam Jones backswing on Saturday. He indicated earlier in the week that he could get into a game this weekend.


    D-Backs' Cahill feeling good despite so-so minor-league outing
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (9:21 am ET) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Trevor Cahill allowed four runs in 5 2/3 innings during a minor-league start Thursday, according to The Arizona Republic. Cahill, who is competing for a spot in the rotation, said he pitched better than his stat line indicated.

    "I was able, for the most part, to keep the ball on the ground," he said. "I felt like I didn't make too many mistakes and the ones I did, they hit. That's going to happen."

    Cahill, who has a 4.50 ERA through three spring starts, said he feels better about his command and ability to repeat his delivery than in past years.

    "I think the misses are a lot better," he said. "They're competitive misses. They're not yanks in the other batter's box. Most of the misses are down, which leaves less room to get hurt."


    Nats' Drew Storen to pitch Friday, Stephen Strasburg on Saturday
    by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
    (9:17 am ET) Nationals right-handed pitcher Drew Storen is among the pitchers slated to make an appearance in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals, and starter Stephen Strasburg will pitch Saturday against the Mets, according to Comcast SportsNet Washington.

    It will be Storen's first outing since he underwent surgery to remove the hook of hamate bone from his left hand back on March 13. Strasburg will also make his first appearance since suffering an ankle injury on March 20.


    D-Backs' Hellickson skips minor-league start due to dead arm
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (9:16 am ET) Diamondbacks pitching coach Mike Harkey said starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson did not make his minor-league start Thursday due to dead arm. However, Harkey expects Hellickson to be ready for the start of the season.

    "He got some treatment a couple of days after his last start and in his bullpen he was a little dead," Harkey said. "It was a perfect time to do it now in March than do it in April."

    Hellickson threw a bullpen session Thursday instead of making his minor-league start. He is still scheduled to pitch Saturday against the Royals.

    Hellickson is 2-1 with a 5.87 ERA in three spring starts.


    Red Sox's Christian Vazquez scheduled for an MRI on Friday
    by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
    (9:12 am ET) Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez (elbow) will undergo an MRI on his injured elbow on Friday. He downplayed the issue, telling reporters that he's "going to be fine," according to WEEI. He is scheduled to catch Joe Kelly in a minor-league intrasquad game. Vazquez will be refrained from throwing to bases.

    Rays' Cash: Desmond Jennings been on fire offensively all spring
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (8:15 am ET) It took 12 games for Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings to hit his first home run this spring, but despite the lack of home run power, the 28-year-old outfielder is still doing pretty well in Grapefruit League games.

    Jennings, who hit a solo home run Thursday against the Yankees, is batting .483 (14 for 29) with two RBI, four runs, four walks and two stolen bases.

    “He’s been on fire all spring, his at-bats, everything,” manager Kevin Cash said, per The Tampa Tribune. “The impressive thing is, the other day he didn’t have his best day, looked a little lot of sorts, but he came back two days after that and just erased it. He’s knocking balls all over the place.”


    Athletics' Jesse Chavez happy with spring showing
    by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
    (1:55 am ET) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez allowed four runs (two earned) on seven hits and two walks in 3 2/3 innings while striking out one in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Giants.

    Chavez, who was on the mound just two days after the birth of his daughter, is happy with his performance this spring, the Bay Area News Group reports.

    "I feel good," Chavez said. "I’ve put some men on, but I’ve pitched out of some jams. I’ve showed them I won’t let it snowball."

    Chavez believes he needs to improve at changing the eye level of batters.

    "I’ve got to get them to change eye levels better," Chavez said. "The last two or three starts, I haven’t been able to do that. The pitches that I’m trying to elevate they’re fouling off (instead of swinging and missing) and that runs up my pitch count."

    Chavez has posted a 4.50 ERA in 16 innings as he competes for a spot in the rotation.


    Giants' Bochy: Joe Panik pressing, remains starter at second base
    by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
    (1:09 am ET) Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday that while infielder Joe Panik might be pressing, he remains the team's starter at second base without reservations, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Panik is just 8 for 50 this spring after going hitless in four at-bats Thursday, though he has delivered three doubles and two home runs. He's looking for a strong follow-up to an impressive rookie season in which he hit .305/.343/.368 in 269 at-bats.
