by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Rizzo, who normally bats third in the order, gave the lineup a breath of fresh air, according to manager Joe Maddon.

"It kind of freshens them up a bit," Maddon said. "The big thing is to protect him, and if you don't, he's not going to get pitched to."


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


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Indians manager Terry Francona told reporters Nick Swisher, who is working back from double-knee surgery, took "a good first step" in Friday's minor-league game, according to MLB.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."
