Rays pitcher Drew Smyly targeting April for a return to the mound


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(9:39 pm ET) Rays pitcher Drew Smyly threw a fourth bullpen session Sunday to rehab from shoulder tendinitis and his hoping to be back in action in April, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

"I'm very hopeful that I'll be pitching in April, for sure," he said. "Something would have to go wrong, there'd be a step backward for me not to pitch in April I feel like."

Smyly is hoping to throw batting practice at some point this week.


Giants first baseman Travis Ishikawa leaves with back tightness Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:51 pm ET) Giants first baseman Travis Ishikawa left Sunday's game after his back flared up, manager Bruce Bochy said according to Andrew Baggarly.

Ishikawa, who is hitting .191 with six RBI in 47 plate appearances this spring, is expected to be re-evaluated Monday.


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


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:20 pm ET) 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.

Dickerson came out of Saturday's game with a tight back, but it doesn't appear the injury will affect his availability for the regular season. He has hit .289/.333/.489 in 45 spring at-bats.


David Lough may be headed to Orioles' DL


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Gray surrendered seven runs (six earned) in just two-thirds of an inning Saturday. However, he believes he's ready to make his major-league debut in regular-season play.

"If I pitch the way I can, I’m definitely ready, but there are still things I have to learn," Gray said. "It’s far from perfection. There are obviously going to be thing I pick up as I go, but there is a lot of stuff I need to work on as well."

Gray said that he anticipates making his next start.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3:31 pm ET) White Sox reliever Jake Petricka said Sunday he's still dealing with forearm soreness. He appears to be eager to get back into action but is irritated that he has to continue to let the injured arm rest, ESPNChicago.com reports.

"I'm irritated," Petricka said. "I feel like I'm letting everyone down just not being able to go out there and do my job. I came in in great shape. Maybe I got a little too amped up in those live batting practice sessions (early in spring) getting a taste of the season again and threw too hard."

"We want to get him in the four-five inning range and see how he responds both physically and endurance wise," manager A.J. Hinch said of Oberholtzer.
