Denard Span takes swings for Nationals
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5:06 pm ET) Nationals outfielder Denard Span was able to swing a back for the first time since abdominal surgery on March 9. 

Span had a procedure to fix a small tear in his right abdomen. 

Span was able to swing a fungo bat in the batting cage, per MLB.com's Jamal Collier.

"It's good progress," manager Matt Williams said. "It's part of the rehab progression. Of course, yeah, we want him back as quickly as possible, keeping in mind that he's just coming off of surgery. So any time you have to go in there, you have to take time to get well again. But yeah, it's encouraging."


Nationals' Anthony Rendon tests knee with lateral movement
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5:04 pm ET) Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon tested his knee by running in the outfield on Friday. Rendon has been out with a sprained left knee since March 9. He can run straight ahead, but in his Friday workout, he tested the knee with lateral movement, per MLB.com's Jamal Collier. 

Rendon still hopes to be ready for Opening Day. 


Mookie Betts hits second spring homer for Red Sox
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4:46 pm ET) Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts hit his second home run of the spring, and this one left the ballpark. 

Betts' first homer of the spring was an inside-the-parker in his first game back. On Friday, he hit one the old fashioned way, lining a 1-1 pitch over the wall in left center for a two-run homer.

Betts was two for three on the day and improved his spring average to .487.


Report: Delino DeShields closing in on breaking camp with Rangers
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4:43 pm ET) Rangers outfielder Delino DeShields, a Rule 5 draft choice, is nearing a spot on the Opening Day roster, according to the Dallas Morning News. Manager Jeff Banister wouldn't confirm DeShields would break camp with the club, but did reveal that he envisions him as a late-inning speed weapon.

"He has a skill set that can help you win games," Banister said. "If he makes this club and stays with this club, he adds value in winning situations.

"Given the construction of the core guys on our roster, he's unique" Banister said. "I'd hate for us to have a double late in the game and not be able to score from first on the play. I think he has the potential to be a contributor, but there is a ways to go to finalize the roster."

DeShields would be sent back to the Astros if he is not on the Rangers' opening day roster.


Red Sox's Buchholz gives up 12 hits in spring loss Friday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:34 pm ET) Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz had his worst start of the spring during a 4-2 loss Friday against the Braves, which was called after 6 1/2 innings due to rain. Buchholz (2-2) allowed four runs on a spring-worst 12 hits and one walk, while striking out six in five-plus innings.

The Braves did most of their damage against Buchholz during a three-run second inning. Kelly Johnson added a solo home run off Buchholz leading off the sixth inning, which chased the right-hander from the game.

His ERA went from 1.80 to 3.60 in his fourth spring start. Buchholz has allowed eight runs (six earned) in his last two starts.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4:29 pm ET) Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo (triceps) threw from 120 feet on Friday, and is expected to play right field at some point this weekend, according to Star-Telegram. He returned to the lineup Thursday, going 0 for 4 while serving as the designated hitter. He is expected to serve a DH again on Friday.

Rangers' Ross Ohlendorf (groin) will be evaluated Friday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4:26 pm ET) Rangers pitcher Ross Ohlendorf is not expected to throw or take part in any baseball activities until he is evaluated by Dr. Keith Meister Friday afternoon, per the Star-Telegram.

Ohlendorf, who is is unlikely to crack the rotation, aggravated his right groin after tossing a scoreless inning of work on Thursday. The team will likely know more about his regular-season status after he is evaluated.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:25 pm ET) Blue Jays starting pitcher Drew Hutchison was able to pick up his third spring win Friday against the Tigers before the game was called after five innings due to rain. Hutchison (3-0) allowed one run on four hits and one walk, while striking out six in five innings.
