Trevor Rosenthal had a pain-free spring training debut and Michael Wacha pitched three effective innings for the St. Louis Cardinals in a 4-4 tie with a Washington Nationals split squad that was called after 10 innings Saturday.
With his parents in the stands, Curtis Granderson put on quite a show.
Calling the New York Mets a "marquee franchise," new players' union head Tony Clark is paying attention to the team's payroll.
Like a lot of fans, I've always been fascinated hearing a country artist cover an unlikely song. The Dixie Chicks' fearless take on Fleetwood Mac's classic "Landslide." Sugarland's soaring, out-of-the-blue (and Grammy-nominated) version of "Life in a Northern Town."
Veteran Doug Fister and prospect Sammy Solis were among those who stood out during the first live batting practice session of spring training.
Scott Sizemore eagerly took the field two years ago for the Oakland Athletics' first full-squad workout. After four seasons in the minor leagues and two more bouncing between farm teams and the majors, he arrived at spring training as Oakland's likely opening-day starter at third base.

The defending AL West champion A's lost ace Bartolo Colon but bolstered a bullpen that could be MLB's best in 2014.

Curtis Granderson is heading across town, where the New York Mets hope his home run swing won't suffer at Citi Field.
The 32-year-old Granderson comes over from the crosstown Yankees, giving the Mets much-needed power in their punchless outfield. He batted .229 with seven homers and 15 RBI this year, when injuries limited him to 61 games. But he surpassed 40 homers in each of the previous two seasons.
The Nationals added some pitching depth, re-signing veteran Chris Young and adding reliever Gabriel Alfaro on minor-league contracts with invitations to spring training.
The Nationals made a minor move to bolster their pitching depth on Tuesday, re-signing veteran right-hander Chris Young to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training.
One day after manager Davey Johnson worried that Henry Rodriguez was dealing with some inflammation in his right elbow, Rodriguez traveled with the Washington Nationals to Kissimmee and was scheduled to face the Houston Astros on Monday.
Chris Young readily admits he doesn't know how the next few days of his career will play out. The day he can activate the out clause in his minor league deal with the Washington Nationals is Sunday. His next start is scheduled for Monday.
"I'm trying to show that I'm healthy and that I'm back," he said. "When I've been healthy I've been a pretty successful major league pitcher."
Young underwent surgery for a pinched nerve last season and said his shoulder is pain-free for the first time in a while.
