First Baseman

1B | Matt Adams | St. Louis Cardinals | Fantasy
St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams, who has a .471 batting average with two home runs and seven runs batted in this spring, may have a spot on the roster when the club breaks camp. "He has nothing left to prove (in Memphis)," manager Mike Matheny said. "The guy can hit. It's just a matter whether he fits in right. It's not a question anymore of can he perform in (the big leagues). He can hit here or anywhere. He doesn't need to show us more."

1B | Jason Giambi | Cleveland Indians | Fantasy
Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said Wednesday, March 6, that he is not ready to say whether 1B Jason Giambi is a front-runner for a spot in the team's bench. "There's no denying that we love him - absolutely love him," Francona said. "But I don't want to start talking about the roster yet. I don't think that's fair, because somebody else will read something into it. If everybody stays healthy, we're going to have some difficult decisions."

1B | Dan Johnson | New York Yankees | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
The New York Yankees came to camp curious to see how 1B Dan Johnson could handle third base, but the injury to 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) has shifted focus back to first base. Johnson made two errors at third base Wednesday, March 6, in a Grapefruit League spring game.

1B | Mark Teixeira | New York Yankees | Injury, Fantasy
Updating a previous report, New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) doesn't have a tear in his wrist tendon and the tendon is "stable." However, he'll need four weeks off and four weeks of rehab before returning.

1B | Andy Wilkins | Chicago White Sox | Transaction,
The Chicago White Sox reassigned C Michael Blanke, SP Jacob Petricka, SS Tyler Saladino, C Kevan Smith and 1B Andy Wilkins to minor league camp Tuesday, March 5.


Second Baseman

2B | Brandon Phillips | Cincinnati Reds | Fantasy
Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips had four of his team's 18 hits Wednesday, March 6, as Team USA lost 8-7 to the Colorado Rockies in a final tuneup for the World Baseball Classic.

2B | Ramon Santiago | Detroit Tigers | Injury, Fantasy
Detroit Tigers SS Ramon Santiago (calf) said Wednesday, March 6, that he went through full batting practice without trouble. He is making his way back from a strained right calf. He is hopeful of being available in Grapefruit League spring games within the next few days.

2B | Howard Kendrick | Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim | Fantasy
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Howard Kendrick is hitting .533 with a 1.000 slugging percentage in his first four spring games. He is a candidate to hit second in the lineup this season after being much more successful in his career lower in the lineup. Kendrick has hit only .257 as the No. 2 hitter. 3B Alberto Callaspo and SS Erick Aybar are also being considered for the second spot.

2B | Aaron Hill | Arizona Diamondbacks | Injury, Fantasy
The Arizona Diamondbacks won't rush 2B Aaron Hill (hip) back into action with him being bothered by a sore left hip flexor. The team will be extra cautious with OF Cody Ross (calf) also dealing with an injury.

2B | David Adams | New York Yankees | Transaction
The New York Yankees optioned 2B David Adams to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Tuesday, March 5.


Shortstop

SS | Rafael Furcal | St. Louis Cardinals | Injury, Fantasy
St. Louis Cardinals SS Rafael Furcal (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow and miss the entire 2013 season.

SS | Derek Jeter | New York Yankees | Injury, Fantasy
The New York Yankees are still leaving open the possibility of SS Derek Jeter (ankle) playing in a Grapefruit League spring game soon, but it won't be by March 10, which is the date general manager Brian Cashman predicted. "I'll talk to him the next couple of days," manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday, March 6. "He seems to be progressing pretty well. I like what I saw when I was watching him take ground balls today."

SS | Ian Desmond | Washington Nationals | Fantasy
Washington Nationals SS Ian Desmond is expected to bat sixth, with 2B Danny Espinosa batting seventh in manager Davey Johnson's batting order ahead of the catcher of the day, which will bat eighth, and the pitcher spot.

SS | Troy Tulowitzki | Colorado Rockies | Injury, Fantasy
Colorado Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki (groin) is playing in back-to-back games for the first time this spring Wednesday, March 6. Tulowitzki isn't worried about how his groin has held up this spring but he hasn't had to run the bases aggressively.

SS | Eduardo Nunez | New York Yankees | Fantasy
The New York Yankees could use INFs Eduardo Nunez or Jayson Nix to third base if they choose to move 3B Kevin Youkilis across the diamond to first base to replace 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) for the first month of the season. The team will not use 1B Travis Hafner at first base.


Third Baseman

3B | Brett Lawrie | Toronto Blue Jays | Injury, Fantasy
Toronto Blue Jays 3B Brett Lawrie (side) left Team Canada's exhibition game Wednesday, March 6, after feeling a minor twinge in his side. Manager Ernie Whitt said Lawrie will be re-evaluated Thursday, March 7.

3B | Don Kelly | Detroit Tigers | Injury, Fantasy
Detroit Tigers 3B Don Kelly (wrist) had his left wrist taped before batting practice Wednesday, March 6. However, he is listed on the team's travel squad Thursday, March 7, so it looks like the injury won't cost him time.

3B | Ryan Zimmerman | Washington Nationals | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman is expected to bat cleanup in manager Davey Johnson's batting order behind OF Bryce Harper and 1B Adam LaRoche. Zimmerman has batted third almost exclusively in his past two season after batting fourth in 41 games in 2010.

3B | Anthony Rendon | Washington Nationals | Fantasy
Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon is 7-for-16 (.438) with three doubles, two home runs and seven RBIs in his first seven spring games, but he won't make the opening day roster this year. Team officials have been thoroughly impressed with his swing in camp. Rendon has the ability to put backspin on the ball when he hits it, allowing it to travel further. He said he learned to hit balls with backspin when he was young. "You try and hit a little bit center, a little bit on top and hitting down. It's hard to explain," he said.

3B | Ian Stewart | Chicago Cubs | Injury, Fantasy
Chicago Cubs 3Bs Ian Stewart (quadriceps) and Josh Vitters (quadriceps) are both improving and could play in games next week.

3B | Mike Olt | Texas Rangers | Injury, Fantasy
Texas Rangers 3B Mike Olt (tooth) did not play Wednesday, March 6, due to an impacted wisdom tooth.

3B | Placido Polanco | Miami Marlins | Injury, Fantasy
Miami Marlins 3B Placido Polanco (back) is expected to return to spring action Wednesday, March 6. 3B Greg Dobbs (calf) is expected to be sidelined a few days with a strained calf.


Catcher

C | Ryan Hanigan | Cincinnati Reds | Injury, Fantasy
Cincinnati Reds C Ryan Hanigan (oblique) is expected to play Friday, March 8, against the Chicago Cubs. Hanigan missed seven games with a strained oblique.

C | Victor Martinez | Detroit Tigers | Injury, Fantasy
Detroit Tigers C Victor Martinez (back, knee) said he dealt with minor back tightness after receiving one at-bat Wednesday, March 6. The injury bothers him when he hits right-handed. "It's just been a little sore in my back, a little uncomfortable to swing on the right side," Martinez said. "It's just a couple days. It's a little tough. I've been out for a year and I've been out there every day swinging, swinging, swinging." He said he isn't worried about his knee anymore.


Outfielder

OF | Colby Rasmus | Toronto Blue Jays | Injury, Fantasy
Toronto Blue Jays OF Colby Rasmus (shoulder) is out until Saturday, March 9.

OF | Ezequiel Carrera | Cleveland Indians | Fantasy
Cleveland Indians OF Ezequiel Carrera is out of minor league options and competing for a job as the team's fourth outfielder. He entered Cactus League play Wednesday, March 6, with a team-high five steals. He can play all three outfield positions. "His speed impacts the game," manager Terry Francona said. "He's got the ability to hit the ball out of the ballpark occasionally. He can be an interesting part of the bench, when he can change a game with his speed. He's a good little player."

OF | Nick Swisher | Cleveland Indians | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said Wednesday, March 6, that 1B Nick Swisher is keeping his throwing arm "stretched out" for potential use as a right fielder this season. Francona said Swisher will play in right field later this spring to keep him ready for potential part-time outfield duty.

OF | Michael Brantley | Cleveland Indians | Injury, Fantasy
Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley (forearm) will likely have his stitches removed either Thursday, March 7, or Friday, March 8. He might be cleared to resume Cactus League spring game activity at some point this weekend.

OF | Juan Rivera | New York Yankees | Fantasy
New York Yankees OF Juan Rivera played first base with the Los Angeles Dodgers last year, but general manager Brian Cashman sees him more as an outfielder. "I don't look at him as a first baseman. I know he played first with the Dodgers, but in fairness, we have to evaluate everything," Cashman said Wednesday, March 6. "If I have our people tell me it's logical, legitimate one to look at, then I'll be comfortable looking at it."

OF | Quintin Berry | Detroit Tigers | Injury, Fantasy
Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland said Wednesday, March 6, that OF Quintin Berry (knee) should be close to a return to Grapefruit League spring game action. However, he was not listed on the team's travel roster for Thursday, March 7.

OF | Jayson Werth | Washington Nationals | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper is expected to bat third in manager Davey Johnson's batting order between OF Jayson Werth and 3B Ryan Zimmerman.

OF | Jared Mitchell | Chicago White Sox | Fantasy
Chicago White Sox OF Jared Mitchell is hitting .417 (5-for-12) with a home run and four RBIs in his first five spring games, although he's likely to start the season at Triple-A Charlotte. Mitchell is expected to make his major league debut at some point this year, however. "At this point now, he is starting to catch up developmentally to where we want. The best news I have about Mitchell is that after (assistant GM) Buddy Bell returned from Instructional League this year he wouldn't shut up about where Jared is and said we can't possibly consider moving this guy because he's ready to bust loose," general manager Rich Hahn said.

OF | Conor Jackson | Baltimore Orioles | Fantasy
Baltimore Orioles OF Conor Jackson hit two home runs Tuesday, March 5, and he has a slash line of .313/.353/.750 with five RBIs in six spring training games. Jackson is receiving the chance to prove he belongs on the roster, and so far he has delivered. Manager Buck Showalter said Jackson is finally regaining the strength he lost from valley fever back in 2009. He could become the backup to 1B Chris Davis as well as providing depth in the outfield. He could also platoon at designated hitter with 1B Wilson Betemit, but he'll need to beat out 1B Steve Pearce and 3B Danny Valencia.

OF | Charlie Blackmon | Colorado Rockies | Injury, Fantasy
Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (knee) is out of action due to a knee infection, and he hasn't played since March 1.

OF | Jackie Bradley | Boston Red Sox | Fantasy
Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley has impressed the coaching staff with his play this spring. "Every time he's stepped on the field, he's done something very positive. For a young player, he's sound fundamentally," said manager John Farrell. "Defensively he takes outstanding routes to some difficult plays in the outfield, even in the early going here. And he's hit both left-handed and right-handed pitching. As we said yesterday, for a young player to make a positive impression in camp, he's gotten off to a very good start." He is 8-for-17 with five runs scored entering Wednesday, March 6.

OF | Matt Carson | Cleveland Indians | Injury
Cleveland Indians OF Matt Carson (head) left the game early after being on the helmet by a pitch Wednesday, March 6.

OF | Jake Marisnick | Miami Marlins | Injury, Fantasy
Miami Marlins OF Jake Marisnick (hand) had X-rays on his left hand after being hit by a pitch Wednesday, March 6, but the results came back negative. "It hit me pretty square, but it feels alright now," said Marisnick. "I got pretty lucky. Just take it day by day and see the pain level, how it feels. I planned on staying in, but...it's still early in spring training. No need to push it if there was something. The news looks good, so I'm happy."

OF | Cody Ross | Arizona Diamondbacks | Injury, Fantasy
Arizona Diamondbacks OF Cody Ross (calf) is dealing with a Grade 1 strain of his soleus muscle, which is part of the calf. He won't do any running for the next two weeks but will be allowed to throw and take batting practice. The team will decide if he can resume running after two weeks, but Ross thinks he'll have plenty of time to be ready for opening day.

OF | Nick Markakis | Baltimore Orioles | Injury, Fantasy
Baltimore Orioles OFs Nick Markakis (neck) and Nolan Reimold (shoulder) could both return to spring action in the outfield Sunday, March 10. Markakis has been dealing with neck spasms and Reimold has a sore right shoulder. Reimold has been serving as the designated hitter because his shoulder only bothers him when he throws. He's considered to be behind Markakis.

OF | Ryan Westmoreland | Retired Players | Transaction
Boston Red Sox OF Ryan Westmoreland announced his retirement Wednesday, March 6.

OF | Brent Lillibridge | Chicago Cubs | Injury, Fantasy
Chicago Cubs OF Brent Lillibridge (groin) is out with an injured groin Wednesday, March 6, but manager Dale Sveum said it won't hurt his chances of making the roster. Lillibridge will serve as a utility man this year.

OF | Brennan Boesch | Detroit Tigers | Injury, Fantasy
Detroit Tigers OF Brennan Boesch (oblique) said he felt fine after going 2-for-3 with a home run and a walk in spring action Tuesday, March 5, as the designated hitter. "It felt great," Boesch said. "I felt excited. I was even nervous before, you know, just getting back out there. It feels great to play a sport I love again. It's been a while. ... I've been patient in my return, and I'm glad it has paid off."

OF | Carl Crawford | Los Angeles Dodgers | Injury, Fantasy
Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford (elbow) will hit off a tee Thursday, March 7.


Starting Pitcher

SP | Michael Wacha | St. Louis Cardinals | Fantasy
St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said SP Michael Wacha has impressed the team this spring, but he is unlikely to make the team. They feel he needs more innings in the minors.

SP | Trevor Rosenthal | St. Louis Cardinals | Fantasy,
St. Louis Cardinals SP Trevor Rosenthal is headed to the bullpen. SPs Joe Kelly and Shelby Miller are the two finalists for the No. 5 starting spot.

SP | Zack Greinke | Los Angeles Dodgers | Injury, Fantasy,
Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke (flu) was scratched from his spring start Wednesday, March 6, due to the flu.

SP | Ted Lilly | Los Angeles Dodgers | Injury, Fantasy,
Los Angeles Dodgers SP Ted Lilly (flu) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, March 6, and he is expected to start the Cactus League spring game Friday, March 8.

SP | David Huff | Cleveland Indians | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy,
Cleveland Indians SP David Huff said Wednesday, March 6, he is willing to accept any job with the team if it means opening the season on the major league roster. The team has used him as a starter, but a bullpen role as a long reliever is a possibility, too. "Whether I'm starting or I'm in the bullpen, I don't care. It's a job in Cleveland. I don't care where it is. I can be giving signs over at first base, as long as I'm up there," Huff, who is out of minor league options, said.

SP | Patrick Corbin | Arizona Diamondbacks | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy,
Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin suffered his first poor outing of the spring Wednesday, March 6, allowing four runs in one inning against the Kansas City Royals. He is battling SPs Randall Delgado and Tyler Skaggs for the fifth starter spot in the rotation.

SP | Hiroki Kuroda | New York Yankees | Fantasy,
New York Yankees SP Hiroki Kuroda worked three scoreless innings while striking out four batters against Team Dominican Republic in an exhibition game Wednesday, March 6. Kuroda said his split was working, but he still needs to improve his two-seamer. "Physically I'm where I want to be," Kuroda said. "And stuff-wise, it's getting there."

SP | Stephen Strasburg | Washington Nationals | Fantasy,
Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg started the Grapefruit League spring road game against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, March 6, and he remains on track to start against the Miami Marlins in the team's opener April 1.

SP | Kyle Lohse | free agent | Free Agents, Fantasy,
The Texas Rangers will not sign free-agent SP Kyle Lohse (Cardinals).

SP | Erasmo Ramirez | Seattle Mariners | Fantasy,
Seattle Mariners SP Erasmo Ramirez tossed three more scoreless innings and gave up just one hit while striking out three Wednesday, March 6, and he hasn't allowed a run in three outings this spring.

SP | Alexi Ogando | Texas Rangers | Fantasy,
The Texas Rangers have not changed their mind about having SP Alexi Ogando in the rotation this year despite a rough start to spring training. He showed a devastating slider and effective changeup while giving up one run and two hits and striking out six in three innings Wednesday, March 6.

SP | Chris Sale | Chicago White Sox | Fantasy,
Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale has talked with the team about a long-term contract extension. He will make $600,000 this year and has three years of arbitration eligibility left.

SP | Matt Garza | Chicago Cubs | Injury, Fantasy,
Chicago Cubs SP Matt Garza (lat) was feeling much better Wednesday, March 6. "(Tuesday) was the most upbeat he's been and the best he's felt," manager Dale Sveum said, adding that the right-hander might try to play catch this weekend.

SP | Johan Santana | New York Mets | Injury, Fantasy,
New York Mets manager Terry Collins isn't worried about getting SP Johan Santana (shoulder) ready to pitch on opening day. Santana has thrown two light bullpen sessions since returning to mound work, and he'll likely throw another bullpen and live batting practice before pitching in a spring game. He'll probably pitch against minor leaguers in case the team needs to backdate a disabled list stint to begin the season.

SP | Dan Haren | Washington Nationals | Injury, Fantasy,
Washington Nationals SP Dan Haren (back) worked with a physical therapist in the offseason and focused on improving his strength and flexibility to keep himself healthy this season. "As you know, with back problems, you're not just treating the back, you're treating everything around it," Haren said. He worked on flexibility for his hips in particular.

SP | Roy Halladay | Philadelphia Phillies | Fantasy,
Philadelphia Phillies SP Roy Halladay gave up two hits while walking one and striking out two in four scoreless innings in his spring outing Wednesday, March 6.

SP | Scott Kazmir | Cleveland Indians | Fantasy,
Cleveland Indians SP Scott Kazmir looked good during a B game Wednesday, March 6, and scouts from the Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs, Milwaukee Brewers and San Diego Padres were on hand. His fastball was hitting the low-90s but he had some problems commanding his breaking pitches early in the game. Kazmir struck out four of the first six batters he faced.

SP | Clayton Kershaw | Los Angeles Dodgers | Fantasy,
Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw has shown frustration with his spring training struggles after he allowed seven hits in three innings to the San Diego Padres Tuesday, March 5. "Concerned might not be the best word, but it's definitely not a confident feeling, I guess you could say, after giving up that many runs," Kershaw said. "You can't say, 'Oh, you feel great' and, 'Oh, you're doing great,' if you're not seeing the results. I'm definitely looking to have a good start here one of these days." He has given up 17 hits and has a 9.00 ERA in eight innings this spring. The team insists that Kershaw is healthy and his velocity is where it needs to be.

SP | Rick Porcello | Detroit Tigers | Fantasy
Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland said it was highly unlikely the team would convert SP Rick Porcello to closer.

RP | Joe Smith | Cleveland Indians | Injury, Fantasy,
Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said Wednesday, March 6, that RP Joe Smith (abdomen) felt fine one day after making his spring debut. "I think he said he was a little tight, but nothing (to worry about)," Francona said. He's really taken care of himself really well. The fact that he came out and pounded strike after strike after strike, that was really encouraging."

RP | David Robertson | New York Yankees | Injury, Fantasy,
New York Yankees RP David Robertson (shoulder) was scratched from a trip to South Florida Thursday, March 7, due to his ailing shoulder. There are still no tests planned. "I don't think there's any rush in the wake of yesterday's sluggish shoulder," manager Joe Girardi Wednesday, March 6. "He'll just go day by day. He was still a little stiff today."

RP | Mariano Rivera | New York Yankees | Fantasy,
New York Yankees RP Mariano Rivera (personal) is back in New York for what the team termed personal reasons. He is still expected to make his spring debut Saturday, March 9.

RP | Bruce Rondon | Detroit Tigers | Fantasy,
Detroit Tigers RP Bruce Rondon and pitching coach Jeff Jones were working on a mechanical tweak Wednesday, March 6, in hopes of re-gaining the command that helped Rondon last summer. Manager Jim Leyland said Rondon is not out of consideration for the closer role, but he also said Rondon had never been named the closer to begin with. "I think the best way to put it is, I think this kid is potentially a fantastic closing prospect," Leyland said Wednesday, March 6. "Is he ready for that? I can't answer that."

RP | Derek Lowe | Texas Rangers | Transaction, Fantasy,
The Texas Rangers signed free-agent RP Derek Lowe (Yankees) to a minor league deal Wednesday, March 6, and he's expected to make the roster.

RP | Grant Balfour | Oakland Athletics | Injury, Fantasy,

RP | Frank Herrmann | Cleveland Indians | Injury,
Cleveland Indians RP Frank Herrmann (elbow) will be examined by Dr. David Altchek in New York next week.

RP | Robbie Ross | Texas Rangers | Fantasy,
Texas Rangers RP Robbie Ross gave up just one run in four innings on four hits and a strikeout Wednesday, March 6, and he's stating his case for the team's final rotation spot. Seven of the 12 outs he recorded were on the ground. Ross has been the most consistent of the starters in camp, and he's allowed three runs and nine hits with one walk and two strikeouts in nine spring innings.

RP | Tanner Scheppers | Texas Rangers | Injury,

RP | Francisco Rodriguez | free agent | Free Agents, Fantasy,
Free-agent RP Francisco Rodriguez (Brewers) said he's interested in re-signing with the team, even though that is unlikely to happen. "I would love to," Rodriguez said. "They've got a great coaching staff over there. To come back and redeem myself would be great, because I've got to be realistic and honest."

RP | Brian Wilson | free agent | Injury, Free Agents, Fantasy,
Updating a previous item, free-agent RP Brian Wilson (elbow) is still rehabbing from his second Tommy John procedure and doesn't want to audition for teams until he's 100 percent healthy. He's currently throwing bullpen sessions at around "80 to 85 percent" intensity, which means he may not sign with a team until a few weeks into the season.

RP | Chris Bootcheck | New York Yankees | Transaction,
The New York Yankees signed free-agent RP Chris Bootcheck (Tigers) to a minor league deal Tuesday, March 5.
