Athletics' Tyler Ladendorf pushing for spot on Opening Day roster


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Athletics utility man Tyler Ladendorf is increasing his chances by the day of making the Opening Day roster in Oakland, reports MLB.com.

Ladendorf, who was suspended for 50 games last year after testing positive for a drug of abuse, has turned heads just about every day he's been on the field.

"Tyler's really emerged this year for us," manager Bob Melvin said this week. "To me, he looks a lot more confident here. We put him on a roster for a reason. His versatility stands out, and we're all about versatility. He has a similar versatility to Ben Zobrist. He can play any of the outfield positions, any of the infield positions, and does well defensively, and his bat emerged last year as well. He's one that's stood out."

Ladendorf just hope it translates into a roster spot.

"Any time you got them talking about you," Ladendorf said, "you're doing something right."

Yankees' Stephen Drew starts to emerge from slump


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Yankees infielder Stephen Drew went three for three on Friday, which is a significant bright spot in what's been a tough spring. 

Prior to Friday's game, Drew only had six hits all spring. The 3-for-3 game boosted his average from .167 to .231. 

"He's swung the bat better the last two weeks," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said, per MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. "The one thing you want is you want a lineup that there's pressure on the pitcher of the opposing team the entire time, and I feel that we have that type of lineup that we can do that, where so much pressure doesn't fall on a couple of guys."


Cubs' Javier Baez shaken up after collision at second base Friday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Cubs shortstop Javier Baez was in the middle of a nasty collision Friday at second base while trying to turn a double play. It looked bad enough manager Joe Maddon was a bit nervous Baez may have suffered a serious injury, reports MLB.com.

"I asked him when was the last time a Puerto Rican had played in the NFL, because he just felt it right there," Maddon said of the crash with the Angels' Kole Calhoun on a double play. "[Baez] got smoked. I didn't know what was wrong with him, but he got hammered. I loved it."

Baez remained in the game and turned the double play. It is unknown yet whether Baez will make the final roster for Opening Day.


Report: Delino DeShields closing in on breaking camp with Rangers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Rangers outfielder Delino DeShields, a Rule 5 draft choice, is nearing a spot on the Opening Day roster, according to the Dallas Morning News. Manager Jeff Banister wouldn't confirm DeShields would break camp with the club, but did reveal that he envisions him as a late-inning speed weapon.

"He has a skill set that can help you win games," Banister said. "If he makes this club and stays with this club, he adds value in winning situations.

"Given the construction of the core guys on our roster, he's unique" Banister said. "I'd hate for us to have a double late in the game and not be able to score from first on the play. I think he has the potential to be a contributor, but there is a ways to go to finalize the roster."

DeShields would be sent back to the Astros if he is not on the Rangers' opening day roster.

"I was kind of falling, diving at the same time just to knock that ball down and keep it in the infield and then I think Schoopy was doing the same thing," Hardy said. "We kind of collided. It wasn't bad. My glasses came down, my hat, all that stuff, but nothing was ... It was no big deal."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals' Williams continues to speak highly of Dan Uggla


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Nationals second baseman Dan Uggla continues to make a strong push for a roster spot, as he is batting .323 (10 for 31) with two home runs, two doubles and six RBI in 15 spring games.

"I just think his direction is good," manager Matt Williams said, per MASNsports.com. "It has been good, the fact that he's just taking balls to right field. He's shown some power the other way in spring, which is good. For him, that's key.

"I know that he feels good about where he's at, I know he feels good about seeing the ball. And the results are showing so yeah, I think he's performed really well. He's been a joy to have around. He's a veteran guy, understands the whole process of spring training, but he's worked really hard, too. So for me he's been real good."

Cubs IF Javier Baez not a lock for 25-man roster


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Although Cubs manager Joe Maddon has been impressed by the play of Javier Baez, he has yet to decide if he will make the team's 25-man roster, according to mlbblogs.com. 

“I have no idea where that came from,” Maddon said. “That hasn’t been decided yet,” regarding reports that Baez was going to make the roster.

Baez is struggling this spring, going 5 for 39 with 14 strikeouts. Maddon talks about the possibility of sending him down to the Minor Leagues.

“There are the occasions where sometimes it works in reverse,” Maddon said. “A guy like him, to go back and accept going back in Triple-A and getting it done there, he might renege at that thought and maybe you’re not going to get the full adjustment you’re looking for and it might take longer.

“If a guy fails at the Major League level and thinks he belongs in the Major Leagues and then knows he failed, if he goes back, it might be easier to get the point across.”

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Mariners outfielder Rickie Weeks is leading off for the team Wednesday, with regular leadoff man Austin Jackson sliding to the No. 2 spot, and manager Lloyd McClendon could use Weeks atop the lineup at times this season, MLB.com reports.

McClendon indicated that both players have different strengths that could be a fit atop the lineup.

"Every player is different. They all have their strengths and weaknesses," McClendon said. "Rickie has close to 3,000 at-bats in the leadoff spot and 100 home runs. There’s a lot to like about him there. Austin is a speed guy that hits a lot of triples and doubles. They both bring a lot to the table."

Weeks is expected to split time in left field with Dustin Ackley this season.
