  • Hanrahan to undergo second Tommy John surgery

    Joel Hanrahan

    Joel Hanrahan's comeback attempt is over. The former All-Star closer and invitee to Tigers camp will undergo another Tommy John surgery after being diagnosed with a tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

  • Ryu, Peralta in line for next steps of rehabs

    Hyun-Jin Ryu

    Recovering pitchers Hyun-Jin Ryu and Joel Peralta came out of their Monday bullpen sessions in good shape on Tuesday and were in line for the next steps in their rehabs.

  • V-Mart hopeful he'll be ready for Opening Day

    Victor Martinez

    Victor Martinez was thinking what most Tigers fans were probably thinking. When his left knee gave out on him in January -- playing catch, of all things -- he thought back to a few years ago. Until orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews went into the knee and clipped the meniscus, Martinez was fearing season-ending surgery again. Three weeks later, he is hopeful about Opening Day.

  • No target date set for Votto's Cactus League debut

    Joey Votto

    To contend in the National League Central, the Reds will be counting heavily on contributions from a healthy Joey Votto during the regular season. But the club will not rush its first baseman into the starting lineup during Spring Training.

  • Moss ahead of schedule in recovery from hip surgery

    Brandon Moss

    Brandon Moss has cleared every hurdle he has faced through the early portion of Spring Training, putting the Indians outfielder on pace to potentially appear in a Cactus League game sooner than originally expected.

  • Miggy moves to field for pregame BP session

    Miguel Cabrera

    Miguel Cabrera was not in Monday's lineup for the Tigers' unofficial Spring Training opener, a 12-2 victory against Florida Southern. He still managed to steal the show with his swing. While Tigers players took pregame batting practice Monday morning, out came Cabrera onto the field, bat in hand, ready to join in. He ended up taking batting practice on the field for the first time this spring.

  • Bailey able to get work in despite rain

    Homer Bailey

    Rain on Monday cut short much of the Reds' normal activity, but starting pitcher Homer Bailey was able to get his work done in the bullpen. It was Bailey's second time on the mound as he returns from surgery on the flexor mass tendon near his right elbow.

  • Sharp Harvey focuses on curve in live BP session

    Matt Harvey

    This early in spring, live batting practice is an exercise inherently stacked against hitters. David Wright calls facing a game-ready pitcher "impossible" at a time when he and his peers are simply trying to rediscover their timing at the plate. So it was entirely unsurprising to Wright when Matt Harvey unleashed a tumbling curveball Monday and the third baseman not only swung through it, but dropped his shoulder, put his head down and half-whiffed, half-walked out of the batter's box.

  • Prince says 'everything is smooth' with swing

    Prince Fielder

    Wednesday against the Royals is the target date for Prince Fielder to play in his first game since May 16. At that point, the Rangers will start getting a real measure for where Fielder is at offensively in his return from surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck.

  • Weiss: Tulo, CarGo ahead of schedule

    Troy Tulowitzki

    The comebacks of shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez from season-ending surgeries in 2014 have accelerated to the point that both could be in Cactus League games sooner than expected.
