Twins' Alex Meyer: I'm not far from the other pitchers in camp
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11:13 am ET) Twins pitcher Alex Meyer, who missed several days last week due to personal reasons and is also dealing with an illness, tossed live batting practice on Monday and told reporters he's not far from the other pitchers in camp, per the Star Tribune.

The Twins have yet to decide if he'll make an appearance in Wednesday's exhibition game against the University of Minnesota.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rays' Franklin confident he'll win competition to be starting shortstop
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:51 am ET) Rays infielder Nick Franklin will be battling for the starting job at shortstop this spring, and he has no doubts he can play the position at the major-league level.

"Absolutely," Franklin said, per the Tampa Bay Times. "Absolutely. 100 percent. I've grown up playing shortstop. Even at the big-league level, playing short just seems natural to me. I enjoy it. I'm really comfortable there. … It's been in my blood for a long time.

"I wouldn't say I need any work. Honestly, I think over these past years I've improved a significant amount at shortstop. … I've been practicing all offseason at short. And there's really no weakness."

The Rays plan to take most of the spring to decide who will be the team's starting shortstop, but Franklin seems pretty confident he will emerge as the victor in the competition.

"I'm going to be out there at short," he said. "There's not a doubt in my mind that I'm not."


Reds' Price: Votto's absence from lineup shouldn't last too long
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:34 am ET) Reds manager Bryan Price reiterated Tuesday first baseman Joey Votto's absence from the spring lineup shouldn't be a lengthy one, per the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Votto, who will not play in Tuesday's spring opener against the Indians, is behind other players in drills, including lateral movement and sliding.

"I don't anticipate it being in the middle of the schedule, it's really hard for me to say an exact date," Price said. "It really comes down to getting enough reps to where we're comfortable enough to put him out there and letting him play. It's not like we're going to see a huge separation between him and the rest of the guys."

Price added the team is just being cautious with Votto, who missed 100 games last season with a left knee injury.

"He's come this far, he's put in all the work to do this," Price said. "It just didn't make sense between the medical staff and myself until he gets as many ground balls and the opportunity to slide and cut and do all the drills and do all the things he wasn't able to do before he got to spring training."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:15 am ET) Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus said his left knee felt better Tuesday, but he is unlikely to play in Wednesday's spring opener against the Royals, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Andrus added the injury is not considered serious.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
