White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche not panicking over spring numbers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche hasn't had a very good showing at the plate this spring, batting .186 with 14 strikeouts in 15 games. However, LaRoche said there is no cause for concern since his spring numbers never look pretty.

“My swing is one where it seems to take me the full spring training and some years past that to get it dialed in,’’ LaRoche said, per the Chicago Sun-Times. “I can remember only two or three springs where with a week left I felt really good.

“The good news is I’ve been there a lot, so there is no need to panic. It comes and goes here for a while. But I’ll be good.’’


Twins' Joe Mauer improving power to right field


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Twins catcher/first baseman Joe Mauer has put in extra time this spring working with hitting instructor Tom Brunansky, in the hopes of improving his power to right field.

"I know he's been spending time with Tom working on that," manager Paul Molitor said, per MLB.com. "Whether it's a runner on first and trying to pull the ball hard, or getting into counts and then turning it loose. I know he's added a little more confidence in that swing. He can keep people more honest by doing things at different times, but at the same time not making drastic changes to who he is." 

Maurer is hitting .229 with a home run and five RBI this spring.

Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli homers in win over Twins


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Mike Napoli of the Red Sox homered Monday in the team's 14-2 win over the Twins, reports MLB.com.

Napoli took an inside pitch and ended up delivering with a broken-bat home run.

"I watched the video on it," said Napoli. "It looked like I got the barrel to it. My at-bat before, when I shot the ball to right field, he kind of got in a little bit on me. That's probably where it broke there."

"It was just a weird feeling," said Napoli. "The bat exploded and it was just kind of sitting there. It's a weird feeling any time you do that. I don't know. I can't really explain it. I was just kind of running around the bases like, 'What just happened?'"

Napoli, 33, hit .248 last season with 17 home runs and 55 RBI.


Tigers' Miguel Cabrera fine after fall at first base


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera toppled over Braves infielder Kelly Johnson while trying to make a play near first base Monday but got up immediately and was fine, MLB.com reports.

"You get concerned anytime you see something like that with Miggy or Victor [Martinez] this time of year," manager Brad Ausmus said. "You pause for a moment. … I mean, clearly Kelly's not trying to hurt Miggy in any way. He's trying to be safe at first. It's a little surprising that, as long as Kelly's been around, that he would do that in a spring training game, but I don't know what his situation is over with Atlanta. He may be trying to make the team, so it's certainly an understandable baseball play. You want to be safe."

Cabrera has been able to work at first base in recent games as he continues his return from ankle surgery. After going 1 for 3 Monday, the first baseman is 7 for 20 with two home runs this spring.

Tigers optimistic Cabrera, Martinez will be ready for Opening Day


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus expressed optimism he will have both first baseman Miguel Cabrera and designated hitter Victor Martinez available for Opening Day, reports MLive.com.

"I'd say, as of right now, I'm optimistic that we can have them both ready for Opening Day," Ausmus said. "But I'm probably more optimistic that at this point that Miggy will be ready to play."

Indians' impressed by Nick Swisher's minor-league appearance


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"He had a base hit and ran through a stop sign at third, because he wanted to see how it felt," Francona said. "He got thrown out at the plate, but it's a good first step for him. Usually, the way it's been with Swish is, every time he's tried to do something, the next time he does it, he does it better."

Swisher, who is expected to land on the disabled list at the start of the season, will meet with a medical staff in the near future to map out a plan for the upcoming weeks.

Another clutch home run for Athletics' Mark Canha


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Athletics first baseman Mark Canha has shown a flair for the dramatic this spring.

On Friday, he hit a walk-off, three-run home run, surprising no one. 

"The only question was whether he was going to hit it to right or hit it to left," manager Bob Melvin said, per SFGate

Two days earlier, Canha hit a two-out, two-run, game-tying home run in the ninth inning. 

"It’s fun. That’s what I try to tell myself in those situations, just have fun, because I tend to get nervous," Canha said. 

Canha is a Rule V pick, meaning the Athletics have to keep him on the MLB roster or risk losing him. He's hitting .267 with three homers and five RBI so far this spring. 


Astros 1B Jon Singleton working to simplify things at the plate


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Astros first baseman Jon Singleton is continuing to progress as a hitter. Singleton has hit .244 so far this spring and manager A.J. Hinch is seeing him get better every day, reports the Houston Chronicle.

"He's working on things to simplify things at the plate, clear his head and take a good pass at the ball and swing at strikes," Hinch said Friday. "Get in a good body posture, making sure that his effort level is at the right consistent. He can swing ferociously with the best of them, and that's not always the best balance swing for him. I think he's trying to find a happy medium on how to try to take his best swing while staying under control. And I think that’s starting to translate into games."

Singleton is getting in the mindset of focusing more at the plate.

"A lot of it is thinking," Singleton said. "You got to get in the box and just let everything go. Let everything that you're working on go. Compete. I think that has a little bit to do with it. I also think it's still early, pitches that I'm missing now I don't think I'm going to miss in May or June. But it’s all a work in progress."


Healthy Albert Pujols hitting well for Angels


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Albert Pujols entered spring training feeling healthy this season, and it's showing at the plate. 

Pujols is hitting .326 with four home runs, for the Angels this spring, with all the homers coming in the last six games. 

"You could tell the difference when you're in good health, and he is right now," shortstop Erick Aybar said of Pujols, per MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez.

"His lower half looks strong; as strong as I've seen it over the last few years," third baseman David Freese agreed.

"He's certainly in great shape, and he's moving well," manager Mike Scioscia said.
