by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Callaspo took starter Jarred Cosart deep for a three-run home run in the opening frame. He finished 1 for 5 with a run scored and three RBI. He is hitting .340/.404/.553 with two home runs and nine RBI in 47 at-bats.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) Rays first baseman James Loney came up big at the plate Friday night against the Yankees.

Jim Adduci in, Mitch Moreland out of Friday lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) The absence of Mitch Moreland in the lineup Friday against the White Sox in favor of Jim Adduci is the result of Ron Washington simply yearning to give the latter his first start of the season for the Rangers rather than dissatisfaction with the former

"His at-bats have been excellent," Washington told the Dallas Morning News about Moreland. "I've been putting getting Adduci in there and I need to do it."

Moreland has reached base five times in the last two games and is batting .279 on the season.


Mark Teixeira expects to be back Sunday with Yankees


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) First baseman Mark Teixeira confirmed Friday his intention to end his minor league rehab stint and return to the Yankees on Sunday, the first day he's eligible.

Teixeira said he "couldn't be happier" with how he feels physically, per Newsday.


Prince Fielder failing to find groove in Texas


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) Every time Rangers newcomer and first baseman Prince Fielder has shown signs of emerging from his early-season slump, he falls back into a funk.

Fielder got two hits on April 4, but followed with an 0-for-12 stretch. He slammed three hits on April 8 before going 1 for 14 in the next four games. He had three hits in his next two games combined, but is 0 for 7 in the last two. He has just four extra-base hits this season with one home run. His stat line reads .164/.271/.262.

Also unsettling for the Rangers is that Ian Kinsler, whom they traded to land their first baseman, is off to a sizzling start in Detroit with numbers that nearly double those of Fielder down the line. Kinsler's stat line is .327/.352/.519.


Mark Teixeira expected to return Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira played three innings in an extended spring training game on Thursday and remains on track to return Sunday, MLB.com reports.

"He had a really good day," manager Joe Girardi said. "He played three innings today, got three at-bats, went first to third and felt really good. He's expected to play five [innings] tomorrow."

Mitch Moreland makes an impact in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland put together his first game with multiple RBI Thursday, in an 8-6 win over the Mariners.

Moreland came up with a couple of big hits in the game, going 2 for 3 with a walk. He drove in two runs in the first inning with a single and then one more in the third on a double.

Moreland is hitting .279/.333/.465 with seven RBI and six runs scored in 14 games.   


Ji-Man Choi hit with 50-game PED suspension


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Mariners minor-league first baseman Ji-Man Choi was slapped with a 50-game suspension on Thursday after testing positive for methandienone, a performance-enhancing substance, MLB.com reports. He was placed on the restricted list for the duration of his suspension.

"A banned substance was detected in my urine sample," Choi said, per the Tacoma News Tribune. "I do not know what I could have taken that caused me to test positive. I have not and never would knowingly use anything illegal to enhance my performance."

Mike Napoli ready to roll Thursday for Red Sox


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli has returned to the lineup for the Thursday game against the White Sox after being inactive since injuring his firger Tuesday.

Napoli had begun to emerge from a mini-slump with three hits, including a home run, in two games after experiencing a 1-for-13 slide.


Jose Abreu gets day off amidst slump


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu was not in the team's starting lineup Thursday against the Red Sox. 

Abreu has just one hit over his last 25 at-bats, and was likely being given a day of rest to get his mind right. Abreu is hitting .217 in 60 at-bats. Paul Konerko will play first base in his absence. 


Mark Teixeira says he's ready to return


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira says he's ready to return to action, according to the New York Post

Teixeira was able to play three innings during an extended spring game and reported no problems. He's expected to be activated Sunday, and will be "disappointed" if he doesn't play. Teixeira is attempting to come back from a hamstring injury.


Jose Abreu mired in slump


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu is mired in a 1 for 25 slump, according to ESPN.

Abreu collected one hit April 13, but that has been sandwiched between a four game stretch in which he has gone hitless. Abreu has seen fewer fastballs than most players, which is likely a sign pitchers are trying to get him out with breaking stuff. Most hitters experience a period of adjustment after they reach the majors, and Abreu will attempt to do so in the coming days.


Marc Krauss clubs first home run Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Astros designated hitter Marc Krauss hit his first home run Wednesday against the Royals.

Krauss wasted no time at the plate, singling in his first at-bat. After a leadoff walk in the bottom of the sixth, Krauss took a 92 mph fastball from Jeremy Guthrie out to left for a two-run shot. He struck out in the bottom of the eighth, and was replaced by Chris Carter in the 10th inning. 

Krauss finished the game 2 for 4, with one run scored and two RBI. 


Brandon Moss clubs second home run Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss hit his second home run of the season Wednesday against the Angels. 

Moss struck out in his first at-bat against Tyler Skaggs, but was able to turn the tables the second time around. Moss belted a 93 mph fastball from Skaggs out to right field for a three-run shot. He walked twice during the game, reaching base three times.

Moss finished the game 1 for 3, with one run scored and three RBI. 


Jon Singleton not next in line -- yet


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) The Astros have another slugging prospect in Triple-A Oklahoma City, but Jon Singleton probably won't be following in George Springer's footsteps just yet. General manager Jeff Luhnow told MLB.com Wednesday he still wants to see Singleton prove himself at the Triple-A level like Springer did.

"We're happy that Singleton is off to a good start," Luhnow said. "He does not have the Triple-A track record that Springer has yet. We feel he needs to develop that track record. We're always going to be in a position where our fans want our top prospects to come up here sooner than we think they're ready to come up here."

Singleton has opened his season with four home runs and 16 RBI while hitting .333 in 12 games for Oklahoma City. Singleton hit just .220/.340/.347 at Triple-A last season, however. 


Seattle promotes Nick Franklin, place Logan Morrison on DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) The worst-kept secret in baseball was finally revealed Wednesday when the Mariners officially announced the promotion of Nick Franklin. He will take the spot opened with the placement of Logan Morrison on the 15-day disabled list due to a hamstring injury.

Morrison has struggled to start the season. That could open the door for Franklin to take over a permanent starting spot. He has been torrid to open the year at Triple-A Tacoma.


Manager: Mike Napoli out on Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) John Farrell has revealed to WEEI that first baseman Mike Napoli will not be in the lineup for the Wednesday game against the White Sox. Napoli is day-to-day with a left finger injury sustained on a head-first slide into second base Tuesday night. He is waiting for the swelling to dissipate.

Napoli boasts an impressive stat line of .302/.393/.509.


Astros holding off bringing Jon Singleton to the majors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) Now that the Astros have promoted outfield prospect George Springer, the attention will now turn to first-base prospect Jon Singleton, who is off to a promising start at Triple-A Oklahoma City. Singleton is batting .333 with four home runs, five doubles and 16 RBI in 12 games.

However, Astros general manager Jeff Lunhow did his best Wednesday to avoid putting a timetable on Singleton's arrival to the majors.

"We’re happy that Singleton is off to a good start," Luhnow said, per MLB.com. "He does not have the Triple-A track record that Springer has yet. We feel he needs to develop that track record. We’re always going to be in a position where our fans want our top prospects to come up here sooner than we think they’re ready to come up here. Last year, it happened to [Jarred] Cosart. We did bring Cosart up at the right time and when he came up he contributed and helped us win ballgames. He still is showing that deserves to be at this level and is ready to help us win."


Mike Napoli suffers dislocated finger


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli jammed his finger while sliding into second base Tuesday against the White Sox, but appears to have suffered a serious injury. Napoli left the game in the top of the ninth after suffering the injury, but X-rays taken after the game revealed he suffered a dislocation, not a break or fracture to his ring finger.

Though the injury is not as severe as it might have been, Napoli might still end up missing some time. He went 1 for 3 with a walk and a stolen base prior to suffering the injury, and will likely be considered day to day moving forward.  


Logan Morrison will only be available in emergency Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Mariners outfielder Logan Morrison will only be available "in an emergency" Tuesday at Texas after leaving Monday's game due to hamstring tightness. Morrison is batting .150 (3 for 20) with no extra-base hits or RBI in eight games.

Logan Morrison dealing with tight hamstring


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2014) Mariners outfielder Logan Morrison was removed from Monday's game against the Rangers due to a tight right hamstring, MLB.com reports.

Morrison was in the starting lineup for Monday's game, and after not receiving an at-bat in the top of the first inning, he was out of the game to begin the bottom of the first. He should be considered day-to-day until the team says otherwise.


Edwin Encarnacion collects three hits Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2014) Blue Jays first baseman Edwin Encarnacion picked up three hits Sunday against the Orioles.

Encarnacion singled in his first at-bat, and doubled twice later in the game, giving him three hits. He also walked once. Encarnacion finished 3 for 4, with one run scored and two RBI. He's still looking for his first home run of the season.
