Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (finger) said his sprained right middle finger "felt really good" after he took swings for the first time this winter. He took 50 swings off a batting tee Monday, Dec. 9, and expects to take batting practice later this week. "It's getting stronger. It felt really good. No issues," said Gonzalez, a two-time all-star. "I am happy with how it feels."

New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said P Jenrry Mejia (elbow) should be a candidate for the starting rotation next year if he can remain healthy. Mejia hasn't pitched more than 108 2/3 innings in any of his seven professional seasons, and he had surgery on his right elbow in August. Alderson prefers for his upper-level prospects to open the season in the minors and then be promoted later in the year.
