Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (teeth) had four wisdom teeth removed Thursday, March 13, and he's expected to sit out three to five days. The team thinks he'll still have time to be ready for opening day, although he has yet to play the field this spring.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton (calf) will take live batting practice Thursday, March 13, and he's still targeting early next week to return to spring games.
FANTASY TIP: Hamilton is running out of time in order to get ready for the regular season, and he'll definitely need to open on the DL if he suffers a setback. If he doesn't receive enough spring at-bats, his timing at the plate may suffer in April. Keep that in mind.

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada made his third error of the spring on a routine grounder Thursday, March 13, and also went 0-for-3 at the plate to move to 1-for-15 in Grapefruit League play. Seattle Mariners SS Nick Franklin continues to be available in a trade, and the pressure is likely mounting for the Mets to find a solution at the 6.
FANTASY TIP: It's gotten so bad for Tejada that the Mets are now considering giving Wilmer Flores time at shortstop. Franklin isn't a bad late-round flier stash in deep mixed leagues in case a trade happens.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun will be the team's leadoff hitter this year, and he has no problems with being patient. "I'm not scared to take a walk, to work a count, so I really don't see any advantage of going out hacking," Calhoun said. "I want to let those guys see how a guy's working early in a game and set the table for the guys behind me." In 20 of his 222 plate appearances last year, Calhoun swung at the first pitch.
