Cubs will wait until the time is right to call up Kris Bryant
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2:16 pm ET) Cubs manager Joe Maddon and president of baseball operations Theo Epstein both know Kris Bryant has the talent to make it in the major leagues. But both expressed concern about having him for the long haul over his entire career Tuesday, reports MLB.com.

"I'm not going to sit here and tell you that you wouldn't want him in your lineup -- there's no question you want him in your lineup," Maddon said. "He's also 23. I'm looking forward to working with this guy for the next 15 years. That'll make me 76. If I'm the next Jack McKeon, I'll be working with this guy when I'm 76 years of age."

Bryant hit a spring training high nine home runs in 40 at-bats while posting a .425 average.

"I'm not saying we're right all the time or right on this issue," Epstein said, "but we have a pretty good track record of bringing along young talent and helping them get off to a good start in their Major League careers, and the way we've done it is to wait for just the right moment."

Maddon thinks he's handled the difficult situation extremely well.

"I put myself in the guy's shoes," Maddon said. "What was my brain like at that age? What was I capable of handling at that age? He's got me beat like so much right now as to what I would've done or been able to handle this at that moment. It's not easy. There's so many things coming at you from so many different directions, and he's done a wonderful job."


Dodgers' Mike Adams will start season at Triple-A
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2:12 pm ET) Dodgers pitcher Mike Adams was informed he will begin the season with Triple-A Oklahoma City, according to SB Nation.

Adams, 36, signed a minor-league deal with the club in early March. He posted a 2.89 ERA over 22 games in 2014. He posted a 9.64 ERA over 4 2/3 innings of work this spring.

"It's a little bit disappointing. I thought I was coming in with an opportunity to make the team. They felt that they didn't want to rush me and cram my innings in, which I understand," Adams said. "Hopefully it's something that won't take long."a
