Ottavino seeking opinions; Axford, Betancourt could close for Rockies
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:32 pm ET) Rockies closer Adam Ottavino, who could be facing Tommy John surgery, is expected to receive "another opinion or two" on his injured right elbow, manager Walt Weiss told MLB Network Radio on Wednesday.

"Tough news for us and tough news for Adam, we still are getting another opinion or two, but doesn't look great," Weiss said.

Ottavino was placed on the 15-day DL last week with a right triceps injury. Weiss indicated that John Axford and Rafael Betancourt are two options for the Rockies in the ninth inning in Ottavino's absence.

"We have Axford and he's closed a lot of games in this league," Weiss said. "We still have Betancourt as well"


Rockies' Weiss not seeing same production from Carlos Gonzalez
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:32 pm ET) Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez hasn't quite figured things out at the plate to start 2015. Gonzalez is hitting just .200 with two home runs and six RBI in 85 at-bats this season, something manager Walt Weiss is a bit surprised to see happening, according to MLB Network Radio.

"We haven't seen him clicking like he has in the past and we're hoping that's right around the corner," Weiss said.

Gonzalez is currently hitting for the worst average of his career after hitting over .300 in 2012 and 2013.


Rangers' Josh Hamilton expected to start rehab assignment next week
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:26 pm ET) Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton is scheduled to play his second extended spring training game Wednesday after getting a day off Tuesday, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Hamilton, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a shoulder injury, is expected to begin his rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock next week.


D-Backs switch Mark Trumbo, A.J. Pollock in batting order
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:25 pm ET) Diamondbacks right fielder Mark Trumbo will bat second for the first time in his career in Game 1 of Wednesday's day-night doubleheader against Colorado.

Trumbo, who is hitting .083 through his first three games in May, will flip spots in the batting order with A.J. Pollock. Pollock, who is hitting .071 (1 for 14) over his last four games, will bat cleanup.

Arizona is considered an underdog (+115) in Game 1, according to VegasInsider.com.


Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk (back) takes BP Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:24 pm ET) Cardinals outfielder Randal Grichuk took batting practice on Tuesday for the first time since going on the disabled list on April 17 with a back injury. The next step for Grichuk is to head to the team's training facility in Jupiter, Fla. to play in extended spring training games starting Friday, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Grichuk will likely head to Class A Palm Beach for a quick rehab assignment before returning to St. Louis, though he may be able to skip that step if all goes well. It has not been announced exactly when the Cardinals expect Grichuk to be activated from the DL.


Angels SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow) hoping to throw off mound by July
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:16 pm ET) Angels starter Tyler Skaggs, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, has been taking a planned week off from his rehab, and will resume throwing on Monday. He's currently slated to start having bullpen sessions by July 1, according to The Orange County Register.

Skaggs made 18 starts for the Halos last season, going 5-5 with a 4.30 ERA before going down with an elbow injury in August. He is not expected to return to a big-league mound until 2016. 


Dodgers' Kenley Jansen could join the club early next week
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:15 pm ET) Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen, on the disabled list recovering from left foot surgery, could be ready to join the club as early as next week, depending on how he responds to back-to-back outings, according to the Orange County Register.

Jansen, who tossed a scoreless inning of work on Sunday, will make his third appearance with Class-A Rancho Cucamonga on Wednesday, and is scheduled to pitch again on Thursday.


Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig still not cleared to run the bases
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:11 pm ET) Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig has yet to receive clearance to run the bases as part of his workouts in Los Angeles, manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday, per the Orange County Register.

Puig has been on the 15-day disabled list since April 26 with a hamstring injury. He won't be able to start a minor-league rehab assignment until he can run the bases.


Yankees' Pirela could eat into playing time of Drew, Gregorius
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:10 pm ET) Yankees infielder Jose Pirela is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday, and that could be bad news for Stephen Drew and Didi Gregorius, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Pirela has been out since he suffered a concussion during spring training.

And, despite the fact that Pirela has just 24 big-league at-bats on his ledger (all coming at the end of the 2014 season), Heyman believes he could cut into the playing time of Drew and/or Gregorius, each of whom have gotten off to slow starts this year. 

Drew is hitting just .167 on the year and Gregorius has committed four errors at shortstop. 

Meanwhile, Pirela was hitting .579 (11 for 19) at Triple-A this season as part of his rehab. He had a home run and four doubles as well and could see time at both middle-infield positions for the Yankees.


Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez hopes to be ready in a couple days
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:09 pm ET) Red Sox outfielder Hanley Ramirez is still feeling the effects of running into the right field wall Monday, but is feeling better, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Ramirez, who has been out of the lineup since crashing into the wall, hopes to be ready in a couple of days. Ramirez is hitting .283 with 10 home runs and 22 RBI in 92 at-bats this season.
