Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson continues to make his case


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson still doesn't know what his role will be when Opening Day rolls around, but he's showing he belongs on the roster, reports MLB.com.

"There's always stuff I need to work on, and I need to continue to impress," Pederson said after launching his fifth home run of the spring Saturday, boosting his batting average to .373.

Manager Don Mattingly remains quiet on what he will do when the decision has to be made, but Pederson is doing what he can to impress.

"[Opening Day] is out of my control," Pederson said. "It's something you dream about as a kid, playing in the big leagues, and you do anything you can to make that dream come true."


Angels OF Mike Trout homers in loss to Dodgers


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Trout, 23, robbed the Dodgers' Alex Guerrero of an extra-base hit in the first inning, making it a successful day for him, despite the loss. 

This spring he has a batting average of .477 with four home runs and 14 RBI. 


Rockies OF Corey Dickerson leaves game due to back tightness


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson left Saturday's game after the third inning due to lower back tightness, according to the Denver Post.

His exit was said to be precautionary and he should be back in action soon. Dickerson told the media that his scheduled play on Sunday is now a "maybe." He added that if this was the regular season he would have played through it.

The 25-year-old is batting .273 with twelve hits, one triple, one home run, four doubles and six RBI in 15 games played this spring.


Royals' Terrance Gore suffers broken jaw in minor league game


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Royals outfield prospect Terrance Gore suffered a broken jaw after being hit in the face by a pitch in a minor league game Friday, manager Ned Yost said according to MLB.com.

Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain developing more power at the plate


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain isn't considered a power hitter by any means. Cain has never hit more than seven home runs in any of his five seasons, but manager Ned Yost thinks he's capable of more, reports MLB.com.

"I think that would be a good bet," Yost said. "… I think he's capable of hitting 15. I really do. He's got a lot of power. You watch him in [batting practice] and he'll hit some vicious line drives as well as hitting the ball out of the park."

Yost just wants to see Cain add the power to become a more complete hitter in 2015.

"He's a more complete hitter than he ever has been," Yost said. "I thought there was a point in time where he could hit 20 in a year. But that would take away from who he is."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

"I literally hit and just go back to the dugout," he said. "I'm trying to stay ahead of the game and get my timing back so that when I am ready to start [a full range of baseball activities], it's just one less thing I have to worry about."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Joe Maddon considering OF Jorge Soler for Cubs' No. 2 spot


(3/28/2015) With the No. 2 spot still undecided in the Cubs' lineup, manager Joe Maddon said outfielder Jorge Soler could be the man for the job, according to MLB.com.

“He’s a really interesting baseball player,” Maddon said. “I’d heard good things, but his impression on me has been really strong.”

Outfielder Chris Coghlan has been the frontrunner for the role but Maddon likes Soler's plate discipline.

“With [Soler], it goes beyond his power. This guy looks over a baseball now. This guy has great decision-making ability at the plate," Maddon said. That bleeds into either you’re driving in the second leadoff hitter plus one, or he’s setting up somebody after him because the guy is going to take his walks."

Soler is hitting .333 this spring with three home runs, eight doubles and 20 RBI.
