San Francisco Giants 2B Marco Scutaro (back, neck, finger) is not expected to be ready to take live batting practice until late next week. He has not yet participated in any Cactus League games.
FANTASY TIP: If Scutaro is sidelined for an extended period of time, look for INFs Tony Abreu and Joaquin Arias to see the bulk of the action at second base.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) is scheduled to have his sore shoulder examined by Dr. James Andrews Monday, March 10, in Birmingham, Ala. Garcia will remain there for several days while physical therapists design a rehabilitation plan that is unlikely to involve throwing.
FANTASY TIP: No timetable has been established for Garcia's return to the mound but it's a pretty safe bet that he won't be ready by Opening Day.

Former NFL LB Keith Bulluck called Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson a "me" person. "He's a friend of mine but when it comes to athlete, he's a 'me' person," Bulluck said. "He's a 'me' person when it comes to the athlete. For the years that he's been there, it's never been his fault why he didn't have a good running game or why he didn't have a good game. It was always somebody else's fault."
