Tigers optimistic Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez ready for Opening Day
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:25 pm ET) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus expressed optimism he will have both first baseman Miguel Cabrera and designated hitter Victor Martinez available for Opening Day, reports MLive.com.

"I'd say, as of right now, I'm optimistic that we can have them both ready for Opening Day," Ausmus said. "But I'm probably more optimistic that at this point that Miggy will be ready to play."

Cabrera, who hit his second home run of spring training Saturday, missed nearly a month after surgery to remove bone spurs in his right ankle while Martinez underwent surgery in early February for a torn meniscus in his left knee.


Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom allows one run in seven innings Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:20 pm ET) Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom continued his roll through spring training hitters Saturday against the Nationals, allowing just one run on four hits with four strikeouts in seven innings of work.

"That's the most stretched out I've been all spring, and I felt really good out there today," deGrom said to ESPN.com.

He needed just 81 pitches to get through his outing.

"I struggled today a little bit," said deGrom, who sliced his Grapefruit League ERA to 2.45. "I don't know if I lost concentration or something with those two four-pitch walks. That's the main thing today, but the spring has been going pretty smooth. I'm still trying to work on things. I was getting under my changeup today. And that’s what I fell behind Bryce with before he hit the home run."


Royals' Terrance Gore suffers broken jaw in minor league game
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:15 pm ET) Royals outfield prospect Terrance Gore suffered a broken jaw after being hit in the face by a pitch in a minor league game Friday, manager Ned Yost said according to MLB.com.

Gore, who was sent down to the minors last week, is playing in Double-A Northwest Arkansas and his timeframe for a return is unknown.


Yankees Alex Rodriguez hits third homer of spring
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(6:14 pm ET) Alex Rodriguez of the Yankees hit his third home run of the spring in a 10-2 loss against the Orioles, according to MLB.com.

"That one felt good," Rodriguez said. "I was excited about that one."

The 39-year-old has had a successful spring, batting .306 with three home runs, one double and four RBI. 

"Numbers mean nothing, but you definitely want to pass the eye test," Rodriguez said. "That means moving around better, putting balls in play, and hitting balls in the mid-90s. Those are things I haven't done in over a year and a half, so everything for me this year -- this spring, at least -- is a test."

Yankees manager Joe Girardi has been pleased with his at-bats this spring.

"He's been pretty consistent," Girardi said. "A home run today -- I think his at-bats have been really good."


Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke scheduled to throw Wednesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:12 pm ET) Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke will throw a minor league game Wednesday instead of his scheduled appearance Thursday against the Angels, reports MLB.com.

Greinke threw 76 pitches in 3 2/3 innings Friday, leading manager Don Mattingly to push for Greinke to work on his command in the minors.

"He's not thrilled about it," Mattingly said. "He'll throw Wednesday, the same day as [Clayton] Kershaw [against the Royals]. We feel he's not quite built up. He didn't get to do the ups and downs last night. He'll have an extra day before he starts [April 7 against San Diego]."


Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain developing more power at the plate
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:09 pm ET) Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain isn't considered a power hitter by any means. Cain has never hit more than seven home runs in any of his five seasons, but manager Ned Yost thinks he's capable of more, reports MLB.com.

"I think that would be a good bet," Yost said. "… I think he's capable of hitting 15. I really do. He's got a lot of power. You watch him in [batting practice] and he'll hit some vicious line drives as well as hitting the ball out of the park."

Yost just wants to see Cain add the power to become a more complete hitter in 2015.

"He's a more complete hitter than he ever has been," Yost said. "I thought there was a point in time where he could hit 20 in a year. But that would take away from who he is."


Rockies P Jorge De La Rosa still dealing with groin tightness
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(6:04 pm ET) Rockies pitcher Jorge De La Rosa is still dealing with left groin tightness, reports MLB.com.

De La Rosa left his only Cactus League start on March 20th due to the injury. 

"I'm really frustrated, but what I can do is just stay calm," De La Rosa said. "I tried to rush it, and you saw what happened last time."

The 33-year-old is looking to build his pitch count between spring training and Minor League rehab games.


Brewers first baseman Adam Lind dealing with back stiffness
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:58 pm ET) Brewers first baseman Adam Lind is having some issues with back stiffness, according to manager Ron Roenicke per MLB.com.

Lind is dealing with the discomfort while he is on the field, bending over for groundballs, but does not have issues while at the plate. Lind is hitting .423 with one home run and four RBI in 26 plate appearances this spring.


Blue Jays outfielder Michael Saunders remains without timetable
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:52 pm ET) Blue Jays outfielder Michael Saunders is still recovering from knee surgery a little over a month ago, but remains without a timetable to get back on the field, reports the National Post.

Saunders is hoping to do some light running in the next few days. He is taking swings in minor league games, but not running the bases.

"I literally hit and just go back to the dugout," he said. "I'm trying to stay ahead of the game and get my timing back so that when I am ready to start [a full range of baseball activities], it's just one less thing I have to worry about."


Phillies pitcher Jerome Williams struggles again Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:45 pm ET) Phillies pitcher Jerome Williams gave up six runs on nine hits in four innings of work Saturday against the Twins. Williams, however, isn't concerned at all with his spring issues on the mound, reports MLB.com.

"I think I'll be fine. Everything is fine," Williams said. "I need to attack, attack."

Williams is now 0-3 with a 6.60 ERA this spring and has given up a total of 11 runs in his last two outings.

"Some of the hits were pretty decent," conceded Williams. "Some others just found holes. I felt good, I felt fine. Physically, everything is fine. There's a couple of pitches I need to work on. I was trying to be too fine."

Manager Ryne Sandberg is taking his struggles into consideration.

"He's a little off with his command," said Sandberg. "He's a not as sharp as he wants to be. He's usually sharper than this in his last couple of outings."
