2/28/2015 Chris Sale, P (CWS), P
Sale has a fracture in his right foot and may miss opening day.

Analysis: The team announced Saturday that he's expected to be sidelined at least three weeks. Sale, who was injured in an accident at his home on Friday, had X-rays of his foot Saturday at a hospital in Glendale. He'll have more tests after the swelling goes down. The 25-year-old was 12-4 with 208 strikeouts and a 2.17 ERA last season, finishing third in the American League Cy Young Award voting.
2/27/2015 Taylor Thompson, P (Oak), P
Thompson begins 2015 on the 60-day disabled list.

Analysis: Thompson has a right shoulder strain for the A's.
2/27/2015 A.J. Griffin, P (Oak), P
Griffin begins 2015 on the 60-day disabled list.

Analysis: Griffin is recovering from right elbow surgery.
2/27/2015 Ryan Perry, P (Det), P
The Detroit Tigers have signed Perry to a minor league deal, bringing the right-hander back to the organization that drafted him in the first round in 2008. Perry hasn't pitched in the major leagues since 2012, when he appeared in seven games for the Washington Nationals. He pitched for the Tigers from 2009-11.

Analysis: Perry received a $1.48 million signing bonus when the Tigers took him with the 21st overall pick out of Arizona in 2008. He is 6-6 with a 4.36 ERA in 156 major league appearances.
2/27/2015 Michael Saunders, RF (Tor), RF
Saunders has undergone surgery on his left knee and could return to the team in five to six weeks. Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Friday that Saunders might be back sooner than anticipated, possibly in mid-April.

Analysis: Saunders tore cartilage in his knee Wednesday when he stepped on a sprinkler while shagging fly balls on a side field at spring training. He was originally expected to be out until mid-July. The Blue Jays got Saunders in an offseason trade with Seattle and project him as a starter this year.
2/27/2015 Alex Rodriguez, 3B (NYY), 3B
Stripped of his job at third base, Rodriguez moved across the diamond and worked out at first base for the initial time with the New York Yankees.

Analysis: Rodriguez fielded grounders and took part in various drills including bunt defense Friday during New York's second full-squad workout.
2/27/2015 Brandon Moss, 1B (Cle), 1B
Moss is testing his patience this spring. Acquired in a December trade from Oakland to bring more power to Cleveland's lineup, the All-Star from last season has been making solid progress as he recovers from hip surgery.

Analysis: Both he and the Indians' training staff have been encouraged that he's ahead of schedule.
2/27/2015 Juan Pierre, LF (Mia), LF
Pierre has announced his retirement after a 14-year major-league career that included a World Series championship with the 2003 Florida Marlins.

Analysis: Pierre ranks 18th in career stolen bases with 614. He was a .295 hitter who finished with 2,217 hits. He batted .247 in 113 games with the Marlins in his final season in 2013. He announced his retirement Friday at age 37.
2/27/2015 Melvin Upton Jr., CF (Atl), CF
Upton is expected to miss the rest of spring training because of inflammation in his left foot. The team announced Upton's condition Friday after he underwent an X-ray and MRI exam.

Analysis: Upton's foot will be placed in a short leg cast for two weeks, then in a walking boot from four to six weeks. The team said he will likely be able to resume baseball activities in early April, about the time the Braves are opening the regular season.
2/27/2015 CC Sabathia, P (NYY), P
Sabathia threw 41 pitches during his third bullpen session at spring training.

Analysis: The 34-year-old left-hander was hobbled by a degenerative cartilage problem in his right knee last season and didn't pitch after May 10. He had surgery in July. Sabathia said he will have another bullpen session before likely advancing to batting practice.
2/26/2015 Johan Santana, P (Tor), P
The Toronto Blue Jays have signed two-time Cy Young winner Santana to a minor league contract, hoping the former ace can make it back to the majors.

Analysis: Santana turns 36 in March. He last pitched in the majors in 2012 with the New York Mets and has undergone two operations on his left shoulder in recent years. Santana was in Baltimore's minor league system last year and tore his left Achilles tendon in June. He's made just one appearance since then, retiring six straight batters in January in the Venezuelan Winter League. The four-time All-Star won AL Cy Young Awards with Minnesota in 2004 and 2006.
2/26/2015 Jayson Werth, RF (Was), RF
Werth is back on the field, just not 100 percent yet.

Analysis: Werth participated in outfield drills Thursday during the Nationals' first full-squad workout Thursday. But the left fielder was generally limited as he recovers from offseason shoulder surgery. Werth had arthroscopic surgery on Jan. 9 to repair the AC joint in his right shoulder and was expected to miss 2-3 months.
2/26/2015 Santiago Casilla, P (SF), P
Casilla was hit on his left shin by a batted ball and left for X-rays during a spring training workout Thursday.

Analysis: Casilla was throwing batting practice to Casey McGehee when the reliever got hit. Casilla sustained a bruised shin and could miss his next throwing session due to soreness.
2/26/2015 Andrelton Simmons, SS (Atl), SS
Simmons has a slight left oblique strain.

Analysis: On the day of the team's first full-squad workout, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez couldn't give a date when Simmons will be ready for exhibition games but said the injury wasn't serious. Simmons fielded balls during workouts Thursday but didn't hit or throw. Gonzalez said Simmons tried to play through the injury.
2/26/2015 Francisco Rodriguez, P (Mil), P
The veteran closer reached a two-year, $13 million deal with the Brewers on Thursday.

Analysis: The 33-year-old reliever revived his career last season after going 44 of 49 in save opportunities. He has signed with the Brewers for a fourth straight year, though this time he has a multi-year deal. The move solidifies a bullpen in which presumed closer Jonathan Broxton figures to move back into a setup role to make room for Rodriguez, who has 348 career saves.
2/26/2015 Michael Saunders, RF (Tor), RF
Saunders stepped on a sprinkler while shagging fly balls, tearing cartilage in his left knee and sidelining him until the All-Star break. General manager Alex Anthopoulos said Thursday surgery is likely but Saunders will seek a second opinion.

Analysis: The 28-year-old player was acquired by the Blue Jays in December from Seattle for pitcher J.A. Happ and was projected to be a starter. Saunders hit .273 with eight home runs and 34 RBIs in 78 games with the Mariners last season. Anthopoulos said the team will look internally for a replacement but is open to a trade or free-agent signing.
2/25/2015 Josh Hamilton, LF (LAA), LF
Hamilton is meeting with Major League Baseball officials about a disciplinary issue. Angels spokesman Tim Mead confirmed the Los Angeles Times' initial report Wednesday that Hamilton went to New York to meet with baseball officials. The team declined to give any more specific information.

Analysis: Hamilton hasn't reported to spring training in Arizona after undergoing surgery on his right shoulder earlier this month. He is expected to be out until after the regular season begins. Hamilton also has a well-chronicled history of drug addiction and alcohol abuse, leading to previous suspensions.
2/25/2015 Homer Bailey, P (Cin), P
Bailey won't be ready for the start of the season as he recovers from surgery on Sept. 5 to repair a torn right flexor tendon.

Analysis: The $105 million right-hander said Wednesday he hasn't had any setbacks since arriving for spring training. Bailey has been limited to playing catch since he reported last week and is scheduled to throw off a mound for the first time on Friday.
2/25/2015 Chad Gaudin, P (LAD), P
Gaudin has agreed to a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Analysis: Gaudin agreed to a minor league deal with Philadelphia in January 2014, then was released at the start of spring training and didn't pitch last season. The 31-year-old is 45-44 with a 4.44 ERA in 11 major league seasons with Tampa Bay, Toronto, Oakland, the Chicago Cubs, San Diego, the New York Yankees, Oakland, Washington, Miami and San Francisco.
2/24/2015 Adam Wainwright, P (StL), P
Wainwright won't pitch in exhibition games until mid-March because of his abdominal strain, a delay that could prevent the St. Louis Cardinals ace from starting the major league season opener at the Chicago Cubs on April 5.`

Analysis: Wainwright was hurt Monday while putting a 45-pound weight back on a rack. He returned to St. Louis for an examination by Dr. Michael Brunt, who said the injury was minor. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny is open to the idea of pushing back Wainwright's season debut a couple of days if the right-hander doesn't respond to proscribed rest as quickly as doctors expect.
