3/7/2014 | Lohse makes between-starts bullpen a group affair
PHOENIX -- Every single time he picks up a baseball, Kyle Lohse says, he does so with purpose. He's hoping his fellow Brewers starting pitchers are thinking the same way. That's why Lohse imported one St. Louis Cardinals tradition to Milwaukee after he signed with the Brewers last season.
3/7/2014 | Ramirez aiming for spring debut on Saturday
Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez says he's ready to go. The 35-year-old veteran underwent surgery in early January to remove a benign polyp from his colon and was set back at the start of Spring Training. He ran the bases on Friday without any problems and said he would be ready to start at third base for Saturday's game against the Royals at Maryvale Baseball Park.

3/7/2014 | Filling out back end of rotation is key for Rangers
The Rangers are at about the halfway point of Spring Training. They have not reached that mark at full gallop. A team that spent the winter focusing on improving its offense has had to abruptly shift focus back toward the pitching staff.
3/7/2014 | Viola preaching 'change' of tune at Mets camp
Twenty-seven years since his sweet music brought a World Series championship to the Twin Cities and 26 since he was a near-unanimous choice for the AL Cy Young Award, Frank Viola and his pull-the-string expertise are at Mets camp in Florida.
3/7/2014 | Varvaro out to prove he deserves spot in bullpen
The Braves know what they're going to get from Anthony Varvaro. And they like what they have. Varvaro, a 29-year-old right-hander, is out of options and perhaps on the bubble for one of the last bullpen jobs in Atlanta, but manager Fredi Gonzalez likes the way he competes.
3/7/2014 | Wood feels like he belongs, but still in awe of stars
Most young pitchers pretend not to notice when All-Stars step into the batter's box. And then there's Alex Wood. Wood, a 23-year-old southpaw for the Braves, was still in college less than two years ago, so he's not afraid to express awe at facing a batter like David Ortiz.
3/7/2014 | Scutaro still a few days away from spring debut
Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro is still at least a few days away from his first appearance of the spring. The 38-year-old has made -- in manager Bruce Bochy's words -- "slow progress" in his return from an ailing back.
3/7/2014 | Taveras tasked with making up for lost time
For months, the Cardinals have been candid when asked about Oscar Taveras' chances of being on the Major League roster come Opening Day. The outfielder's April assignment, general manager John Mozeliak has said, will have much to do with how Taveras performs this spring. Of course, to make his case, Taveras first had to take the field. That opportunity finally came on Friday.

3/7/2014 | Effective Lincecum pleased with latest outing
Royals hitters made plenty of contact against Giants ace Tim Lincecum in his three innings on Friday afternoon. None of it was the good kind -- and that's all that matters to Lincecum.
3/7/2014 | Future Giants stars to appear in games Sunday
The Giants' youth will be on full display in their two games Sunday, as three pitchers age 24 or younger will make a start.
3/7/2014 | CC to get start when Yanks visit Panama for Mo

3/7/2014 | Soriano may soon see work at first base
Alfonso Soriano brought a first baseman's glove to camp this spring, just in case, and the Yankees are strongly considering giving him an opportunity to wear it.
3/7/2014 | Ausmus: 'Blame the manager' for game-ending balk
On the first day of Tigers workouts, new manager Brad Ausmus had his pitchers working on pickoff throws, including the little-used pickoff to third base. Given Ausmus' focus on preparation all spring, it was surely going to come into play in a game this spring.
3/7/2014 | Crosby to see game action Monday vs. Cards
Casey Crosby now has a timetable for his attempt to win a spot in the Tigers' bullpen. The lefty prospect is tentatively set to make his first outing of the spring on Monday against the Cardinals in Jupiter.
3/7/2014 | Rondon pushed back one day with minor issue
Add another injury to the Tigers' list. Bruce Rondon's back issue, however, appears to be minor, enough so that the team only pushed him back a day from the pitching schedule.
3/7/2014 | Tigers bring back Ledezma on Minors deal
The Tigers' ties with their 2003 team that lost an American League-record 119 games seemingly ended when Ramon Santiago and Jeremy Bonderman weren't re-signed, but they have been loosely renewed. Wil Ledezma, who pitched parts of five seasons in Detroit, signed a Minor League contract to pitch for Triple-A Toledo.

3/7/2014 | Pineda's outing encouraging to righty, Yankees

3/7/2014 | Burnett: Rough start still 'step' in spring process
Right-hander A.J. Burnett said he was frustrated after giving up six runs on seven hits in just three innings in his Grapefruit League start against the Orioles on Friday at Ed Smith Stadium -- but not because of the ugly box score line.
3/7/2014 | Sandberg, Phillies remaining patient with Gonzalez
Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, who signed a three-year, $12 million contract as a free agent needed 31 pitches to get through the fourth inning against the Orioles in Friday's 15-4 Grapefruit League loss at Ed Smith Stadium.
