(10:39 am ET) Rockies infielder Charlie Culberson was back in action for the first time in nearly three weeks Saturday, going 0 for 2 at the plate against the Cubs.

Culberson has been slowed by a back issue this spring but was able to play in a minor-league game last week before making his Cactus League return Saturday. He's 4 for 13 this spring.


Diamondbacks' Addison Reed earns save in spring debut
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:30 am ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Addison Reed was charged with an unearned run in his spring debut Friday but earned the save after walking a batter and allowing no hits.

Reed said last week he wanted to pitch in four or five outings to get ready for the start of the regular season, so it's possible he'll be back on the mound Sunday after receiving the day off Saturday. He is working his way to full health after dealing with a shoulder injury this spring.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:27 am ET) Red Sox pitcher Brian Johnson has impressed manager John Farrell in spring training. 

Johnson is 1-1 with a 2.38 ERA this spring. He's struck out 13 in 11 and a third innings. His velocity has also been improved. He regularly hits 91 mph and has thrown as hard as 94. 

Farrell called Johnson "one of the bright spots in camp" on Sunday, per Alex Speier of the Boston Globe.


Yankees release Scott Baker, reassign Kyle Davies
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:17 am ET) The Yankees have released pitcher Scott Baker and reassigned Kyle Davies to minor-league camp, the New York Daily News reports.

Baker struggled in his attempt to win a spot on the roster this spring, giving up nine earned runs in 10 1/3 innings, though he did strike out 10 batters while walking none. The team could potentially re-sign him at a later date.

Davies gave up four earned runs in seven innings this spring.


Tommy John surgery possible for Red Sox Christian Vazquez
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:14 am ET) Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez will be evaluated by Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday, per the Boston Herald's Michael Silverman which is not a good sign for his injured elbow.

The Sox said that an MRI on Vazquez's injured elbow "found something". While no decision on surgery has been made, Andrews is the pioneer of Tommy John elbow surgery, which would keep Vazquez out for close to a year. 


Farrell: Red Sox RP Uehara 'not likely' to make Opening Day roster
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:13 am ET) Red Sox manager John Farrell said Sunday that closer Koji Uehara (hamstring) is "not likely" to be on the team's Opening Day roster, the Providence Journal reports.

Uehara felt discomfort in his hamstring during his bullpen session Saturday while throwing for the first time in two weeks, and while Farrell wasn't ready to rule out Uehara for Opening Day Saturday, the closer appears headed for a trip to the disabled list in order to recover fully from the injury.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:04 am ET) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth took batting practice on Saturday, for the first time since the shoulder surgery that has kept him out this spring. 

Manager Matt Williams said the hitting went well, but Werth won't hit in a minor league game on Sunday. The team still hopes Werth will be ready by Opening Day, but Williams said that was "a stretch", per James Wagner of the Washington Post.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
