Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco expected to return Wednesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:01 pm ET) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco missed Tuesday's game with a cramp in his left quadriceps suffered in a game over the weekend, but is hoping to play Wednesday, reports MLB.com.

"I'm optimistically thinking that he'll be ready to play tomorrow," manager Bryan Price said Tuesday morning. "[What I don't want to do with injured players] is to put them in there and find out they can't go, or shouldn't go."

Mesoraco is hitting .214 with two home runs and four RBI in 11 spring training games.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:53 pm ET) Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman was removed from Tuesday's game with an undisclosed injury after manager Bryan Price and a trainer came to the mound to check him out, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Brian Flynn will have tough time making Royals' staff
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5:52 pm ET) Royals pitcher Brian Flynn will have a tough time making the Major League roster, according to a report by the Kansas City Star.

Flynn had a 1.50 ERA in nine games this spring, and manager Ned Yost said he was one of the best pitchers in camp. However, the Royals would risk losing either Ryan Madson or Louis Coleman if they sent either of those pitchers down. Flynn still has options available. 


Ryan Madson has opt-out with Royals but would consider AAA
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5:48 pm ET) Ryan Madson confirmed to the Kansas City Star that he had a "gentleman's opt-out" clause in his contract with the Royals that would allow him to field offers from other teams, if the Royals try to send him down.

Madson said that he'd be willing to accept a demotion to Triple-A Omaha, if no other team offers him a Major League roster spot.


Yankees catcher Austin Romine still unsure of role
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:47 pm ET) Yankees backup catcher Austin Romine still doesn't know where he will be when the season begins, reports NJ.com.

Romine, who is battling with John Ryan Murphy for the backup role at catcher, is hitting a low .143 in 28 plate appearances this spring.

It's hard for Romine to not think about what will happen.

"Being a human, you're going to think about it," he continued. "It is your career, it's your future, stuff like that. So best I can do is go out there and show them I can catch."

With four games left, Romine will continue to try to perform at the highest level.

"I'm just playing. I'm playing to make this team, but I'm also playing for the teams out there," Romine said. "But I want nothing more than to make it on this team. That's my goal."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Osuna posted a 2-0 record with a 0.82 ERA in seven spring training appearances while Castro posted a 1.64 ERA with 10 strikeouts and no walks this spring.


White Sox RP Jesse Crain (shoulder) resumes throwing
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:38 pm ET) White Sox reliever Jesse Crain has resumed throwing after suffering a minor setback in mid-March due to shoulder soreness, per MLB.com.

"But I'm moving forward again," said Crain, who played long toss from 120 feet Monday. "Obviously, when you first come in, you feel like there's a chance, as I was doing so well. ... I don't want to rush it, and [I want to] make sure I'm there and there for good when it happens.

"I've felt better than I have since I've been going through this. So, that's a positive sign. I'm going to stay down here and keep working and be with the staff down here, and we'll put a good plan together to make that happen."

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
