by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:17 pm ET) Mariners pitcher Tom Wilhelmsen has still not been cleared to begin throwing since suffering a hyperextended elbow April 11, according to MLB.com.

Wilhelmsen, who is currently on the 15-day DL with the injury, doesn't have any structural damage and is waiting for the dye from the MRI to clear out of his system and the pain to go away before resuming throwing.

"I'm feeling loads better," Wilhelmsen said. "All the fluid from the MRI is finally out of my arm. I was expecting to throw about a week after it happened, but they put the ink in there, and that lingers. Today is the first day where I haven't had any aches or anything due to it."

He is hoping to throw Friday.

"Structurally, everything is strong and secure, and I'm good to go," he said. "The plan now is to throw maybe Friday."

"It's too early for any of that," Mattingly said. "This is really just our guys getting rest."

Greinke is 2-0 in three starts this season with a 1.83 ERA and 14 strikeouts.


Rockies' Wilin Rosario still adjusting to first base


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

"Both plays at first were not routine plays," Weiss said. "The ball down the line was a difficult play. ... The other was a throw in the dirt that he didn't pick. But he's working really hard and has a great attitude. I haven't backed off that all — having him at first."

Rosario is hitting .333 in 12 at-bats this season.

Astros' Brett Oberholtzer throws BP, to pitch in extended spring


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(9:24 pm ET) Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer (blister) threw live batting practice Monday at the team's minor league complex in Kissimmee, FL, and is expected to pitch in an extend spring game towards the end of the week, according to MLB.com.

Oberholtzer has been out all season with a blister on his index finger.

"I think it’s resolved," manager A.J. Hinch said of the blister. "Otherwise, we wouldn’t put him in a game. But it sounds like the skin over the finger is game ready."

Oberholtzer won’t be able to be inserted in the rotation until some time in May at the earliest, so Hinch said he'll throw two- to three-inning outings at first and build him up from there.

"We’re just happy to get him on the mound against competitive hitters, work on his pitching and not on his skin," Hinch added.

Oberholtzer was a candidate late in spring training for a spot in the Astros' starting rotation before the blister issue.

Twins shortstop Danny Santana still figuring things out at the plate


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:54 pm ET) Twins shortstop Danny Santana hasn't provided the same pop at the plate in 2015 as he did a season ago. So far, Santana is hitting just .195 in 10 games this season after posting a .319 average in 2014 with 41 extra-base hits and 20 stolen bases in 101 games.

Manager Paul Molitor thinks Santana is just trying to do too much at the plate, according to MLB.com.

"Strikeouts are such a bigger part of the game and he's trying to fit the role of a good leadoff guy," Molitor said. "I'm not sure what that even is anymore. Obviously, you want the guy to get on base, score runs and be aggressive on the basepaths. But he knows doesn't walk a lot and is trying to improve that. And then he ends up pressing more. He tries to take pitches and then he's not doing well when he falls behind in the count. So it's kind of a catch-22 right now."
