Rays C John Jaso moved to 60-day DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:40 pm ET) The left wrist sprain that Rays catcher John Jaso sustained on Opening Day has not improved enough to bring him back any time soon. He has been placed on the 60-day disabled list, pushing his timetable back for a return to at least early June, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Jaso put just one at-bat in the books before going down.

Guerra opened the year in the Chicago bullpen. He pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings covering three appearances before going down.


Report: Nationals' Max Scherzer (thumb) seeing specialist


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(12:43 pm ET) Nationals starter Max Scherzer, who sprained his right thumb while hitting last Thursday, is reportedly seeing a specialist to gather more information about the injury, per Fox Sports' Jon Morosi. 

The Nationals are optimstic that their $200 million ace will miss no more than one start -- the one he was scheduled to make Tuesday against the Braves. Scherzer threw in the outfield on Sunday, but the thumb remained swollen. 

Scherzer is 1-2 over his first four starts with the Nationals but owns a 1.26 ERA and 29:4 K:BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings.

Cardinals will look internally to replace P Adam Wainwright


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(9:56 am ET) With starter Adam Wainwright likely done for the season with an Achilles injury, the Cardinals will initially look at internal candidates to replace the pitcher, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Cardinals GM John Mozeliak said that to fill Wainwright's spot in the rotation Thursday, the team will look to either lefties Tyler Lyons and Tim Cooney or righthander Zach Petrick

That would seem to eliminate the Cardinals making a move for a veteran pitcher like the Phillies' Cole Hamels, at least for now. 

"If you get into May and early June and you don't feel like the internal options are the solution you were hoping for, then you might have to look outside," Mozeliak said.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Arroyo underwent the procedure last July and is hopeful to return during the second half of the season at some point. Arizona has a $4.5 million buyout on Arroyo's contract at the end of the season, which is motivating his speedy recovery from the surgery.
