|(2/10/13) Indians first baseman Matt LaPorta underwent surgery on his hip last October but told MLB.com on Sunday that he has made some solid progress the last few months. "I feel a million times better," LaPorta said. The 28-year-old enters camp fighting for a starting job in Cleveland and is focusing on remaining healthy. "Any chance I get to put a uniform on is an opportunity," he said. "I'm still here. I'm getting healthy. The main thing is getting healthy. I don't want to put the cart before the horse and be thinking this or that. None of that matters if I'm not healthy."
