Brewers' Roenicke chooses Carlos Gomez to bat leadoff


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:00 pm ET) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke told reporters Tuesday's spring lineup against the Reds will be the team's Opening Day batting order, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Tuesday's lineup had center fielder Carlos Gomez batting first, and he was followed by catcher Jonathan Lucroy, right fielder Ryan Braun, third base Aramis Ramirez, first baseman Adam Lind, left fielder Khris Davis, second baseman Scooter Gennett and shortstop Jean Segura. The pitcher will bat ninth.

Roenicke said he chose Gomez to bat leadoff over Gennett because moving Gomez to the middle of the lineup disrupts other hitters.


Cardinals award Randal Grichuk, Pete Kozma final two bench spots


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:16 am ET) The Cardinals informed outfielder Randal Grichuk and Pete Kozma that they have earned the final two spots on St. Louis' bench, per MLB.com.

Grichuk is hitting .256/.373/.558 with four homers and 10 RBI over 43 at-bats this spring. Kozma .429/.432/.429 with five RBI over 42 at-bats in Grapefruit League play.

"We'll find out [Grichuk's potential]," manager Mike Matheny said, per the St. Louis Post Dispatch. "I think that's how we'll go about it. I see him just as a very valuable weapon offensively, defensively, and on the bases. Just another right-handed bat to give us those options. We're going to try to give him as much work as we possibly can. Just watching what he's done this spring couldn't imagine leaving Florida without him on our club."


Cardinals' Dean Anna to work at three infield positions in minors


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Cardinals infielder Dean Anna , sent to the minor leagues on Sunday, will work at second base, third base and shortstop at Triple-A Memphis, manager Mike Matheny said, per MLB.com.

Anna hit .200 in 20 spring at bats with the Cards. 


Allen Webster among Diamondbacks cuts Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) The Diamondbacks optioned pitcher Matt Reynolds, pitcher A.J. Schugel and pitcher Allen Webster to Triple-A Reno. They also reassigned outfielder Nick Buss, infielder Walter Ibarra and pitcher Dan Runzler to minor-league camp Monday.

Cubs option Javier Baez, reassign Kris Bryant, Addison Russell


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) The Cubs cut three of their key young players from major-league camp Monday, optioning infielder Javier Baez to Triple-A Iowa and reassigning third baseman Kris Bryant and shortstop Addison Russell to minor-league camp.

“I have a feeling they’ll be back at the right time and help us win a lot of games over the next many years," Cubs president Theo Epstein said, per CSNChicago.com.

Baez was initially expected to open the season as the team's starting second baseman after racking up 213 at-bats in his rookie season in 2014. He hit just .169/.227/.324 with nine home runs, 20 RBI and five stolen bases last season but also struck out 95 times. Baez struggled to make an impact at the plate this spring, collecting just nine hits in 52 at-bats while striking out 20 times.

"He’s so close to getting it figured out in the batter’s box. But we just feel like Triple-A is the right forum for him," Epstein said. "We all agree that Javy is an extremely talented player, who’s going to be a big part of this organization for a long time."

Bryant has been one of the best hitters in either spring-training league in 2015, going 17 for 40 with nine home runs and 15 RBI. He is expected to make his major-league debut during 2015. Russell, the biggest name from the trade that sent Jeff Samardzija to Oakland last season, hit .324/.359/.486 with one home run in 37 spring at-bats.

"We’re more likely to get (Bryant) sooner than later at this point with how he’s playing and how close he showed (he is to majors)," Epstein said. "He’s really close to being not just in the big leagues, but to playing an important role on the team."

With Baez and Bryant out of the picture, the Cubs will likely choose between Arismendy Alcantara, Mike Olt and Tommy La Stella for playing time at second base and third base.


Reds announce cuts Monday, release veteran Paul Maholm


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) The Reds made another rounds of cuts Monday, which included the release of veteran pitcher Paul Maholm, who was competing for a spot on the pitching staff this spring.

Other moves Monday included optioning pitcher Pedro Villarreal to Triple-A Louisville, as well as reassigning pitcher Nate Adock, infielder Ivan De Jesus Jr., infielder Irving Falu and catcher Kyle Skipworth to minor-league camp.


Report: Mets likely to keep Muno over Reynolds, if Murphy goes on DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) If Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy begins the season on the disabled list due to a hamstring injury, the team is more likely to choose Danny Muno over prospect Matt Reynolds to replace him on the roster, a team source told ESPN.

If Murphy is out, the Mets prefer to have Muno and Ruben Tejada play at second base, with Reynolds being sent to Triple-A to start at shortstop.

One of the reasons the Mets are considering sending Reynolds to the minors is because the team doesn't want to avoid a dilemma in case Reynolds thrives in Murphy's absence and manager Terry Collins wants to keep him around as a bench option. They do not want to start his MLB service time for a backup role.


Mets' Matt Reynolds could start at second if Daniel Murphy isn't ready


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Mets middle infielder Matt Reynolds may get the nod at second base if regular starter Daniel Murphy is not healthy enough to play on Opening Day, reports MLB.com.

Reynolds, who spent most of last season in Triple-A, is hitting .381 in 42 spring training at-bats, making the decision tough for manager Terry Collins.

"He's a baseball player -- everybody keeps saying that about him, but that's what he is," Collins said. "He handles the bat, he runs the bases, he does a lot of little things right. But Danny Muno's a dangerous bat -- I'll tell you what, he can get a hit. And the other kid, Ruben, he's played there. He's played there under the bright lights and been very successful. So we've got a lot of options."

Murphy is still recovering from a hamstring injury and is uncertain for Opening Day.


Pirates second baseman Jung Ho Kang gets on track at the plate


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Pirates second baseman Jung Ho Kang broke out of a mini slump Sunday by belting a two-run home run in the ninth inning to take down the Braves.

Kang had two hits on the game and brought a smile to manager Clint Hurdle's face, reports MLB.com.

"A very, very good day at the plate for him," Hurdle said of Kang. "He stayed on a breaking ball and lined out hard, singled sharply to center, then got all of that fastball. Nothing can breed confidence like success."

Kang was just 2 for 29 coming into Sunday during spring training.


Cardinals cut four from major-league camp Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rockies' Daniel Descalso (oblique) singles in return Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Descalso missed two weeks while recovering from an oblique strain. He's expected to open the season as the team's primary utility infielder.


Report: Rockies' Troy Tulowitzki looks completely healthy


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki looks completely healthy heading into the final week of spring training, the Denver Post reports.

"I think if anything, this spring has given me confidence," Tulowitzki said. "When I was diagnosed with a torn labrum last summer, you think about a lot of things. You think about your career and whether or not you'll be the same player. You check out how you feel, day in and day out. I know it's just spring training, but for me, I've gained a lot of confidence. I know I can be the same player, if not better."

Tulowitzki was in the midst of his finest offensive season last year before undergoing hip surgery and being limited to 91 games. He finished with a .340/.432/.603 line with 21 home runs and 52 RBI in 315 at-bats.


Brewers prospect Orlando Arcia shows signs of bright future


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Brewers shortstop prospect Orlando Arcia showed why many think he could be the future of the franchise very soon, reports MLB.com.

Arcia, who has played mostly in minor-league camp this spring, ripped two doubles Friday in three innings of work. He's gone 4 of 7 at the plate in limited spring training work.

"He's impressive," manager Ron Roenicke said Saturday. "He's got the total package. The offense is what they were hoping would come around. This is a short sample, obviously, but if he continues to grow in that direction he will be fun to watch."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Manager Clint Hurdle indicated last week that Kang's timing issues at the plate may have to do with his leg kick that begins his swing. Kang, who spent his previous nine baseball seasons in the Korean Baseball Organization, is hitting .111 in 11 Grapefruit League games.

"Not yet, but I think they know," Castro said. "They know I want to play that, I want to be there every day. It doesn’t matter if today is a bad game, tomorrow’s a bad game, I don’t care. I’m here, trying to grow up every day and try to be a better player."

Castro is 6 for 26 with two doubles, one triple and two walks this spring.
