by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:51 am ET) The Rays placed pitcher Alex Colome on the disabled list, retroactive to March 27, with pneumonia, the team announced on Saturday.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta changing diet, workout routine
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:40 am ET) Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta revamped his offseason program, and he hopes the changes will pay off this season. 

Arrieta cut back on weight training in favor of Pilates. He does the yoga workouts six days a week, which will improve his range of motion and stamina. 

"A lot of guys are starting to get way from trying to jerk these heavy weights and throw all these heavy weights around," Arrieta said, per the Baltimore Sun. "Building strength is very important, but there are many ways to do that. That's why I got into Pilates because I can reduce the stress and impact in my joints while still being able to increase strength and flexibility, and it's going to pay dividends."

Arrieta also cut back on red meat and added a high concentration of fruits and vegetables, including kale juice. 

"The first thing you have to do is understand the nutrients your body needs," Arrieta said. "The best way to get those sources of nutrition is from vegetables, nuts, beans and things that aren't processed."

Arrieta has a 2-1 record with a 5.40 ERA this spring.


Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph should start on Opening Day
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:35 am ET) Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph is the likely starter on Opening Day, which will not only be a first for him, but the first time he's ever broken camp with a Major League team. 

Joseph locked up a roster spot, and a likely start in the opener, when it became clear Matt Wieters wouldn't be ready by the start of the season. 

"Things happen in this game that nobody really expects and just like we've had to do in years' past the next guy has got to step up," Joseph said, per the Baltimore Sun. "Hopefully, we get Matt back really soon but, as long as he is out, I'm going to try and step up and do my best and try to continue what I did last year."

Joseph is hitting .333 this spring with five RBI. 


Rays remain undecided on No. 2 catcher
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:33 am ET) Rays manager Kevin Cash said the race for the backup catcher job between Curt Casali or Bobby Wilson has "been made difficult simply because the guys have performed well," according to the Tampa Bay Times on Saturday.

Casali has a .190 batting average with a .217 on-base percentage in 10 Grapefruit League games. Wilson owns a .143/.250/.143 slash line through 12 games this spring.
