Jon Jay (wrist) took batting practice on the field Thursday for the first time this spring.

According to MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch, that puts Jay ahead of schedule in his recovery from offseason wrist surgery. The 30-year-old center fielder is not in danger of missing the start of the regular season. He signed a two-year, $10.975 million contract with the Cardinals in early February that covers his final two years of salary arbitration.

Erik Bedard said Wednesday that he is open to being sent to Triple-A Albuquerque when camp closes.

"I know where I stand. It feels fine," said the veteran left-hander. "The game’s still fun and I like playing baseball is, basically, what it comes down to." Bedard is obviously a severe longshot for a rotation spot with the Dodgers, though he could get a look for long relief if he pitches well in the Cactus League. The 36-year-old signed a minor league contract with Los Angeles in January. He had a 4.76 ERA in 75 2/3 innings with the Rays last season.

Derek Holland (shoulder) is now scheduled to throw a bullpen session Friday.

There was a report that he was going to try it Thursday, but that could have been a communication mix-up. Holland had to be scratched from an intrasquad game last week in Rangers camp due to discomfort in his left shoulder. It's thought to be routine spring soreness, but the Rangers are probably going to take it slowly with him now given his recent injury history.

Yoan Lopez is scheduled to make his Cactus League debut Sunday.

The 21-year-old Cuban right-hander landed an $8.25 million bonus from the Diamondbacks in January -- a record for an international amateur, though the record only stood for a couple of weeks. D'Backs GM Dave Stewart said in February that Lopez is competing for an Opening Day rotation spot, but it's far more likely that he spends a bit of time in the minors to open his career.
Mar 5 - 10:27 AM

Ji-Man Choi (leg) is expected to miss 4-6 months.

Choi suffered a fractured right fibula Wednesday while trying to get to an overthrown ball at first base in a Cactus League game. He underwent surgery Thursday morning. The 23-year-old South Korean was hit with a 50-game PED suspension last season and will now miss another important chunk of potential development.
Mar 5 - 10:22 AM

Cubs signed LHP Phil Coke to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Coke drew interest from the Rangers, Royals, and Blue Jays over the last few weeks and reportedly turned down a guaranteed major league contract to compete for a job in Cubs camp. The 32-year-old left-hander posted a 3.88 ERA and 41/20 K/BB ratio in 58 innings last season with the Tigers. He's still pretty effective when used strictly against left-handed hitters, so it's a decent early-spring grab for Chicago. Coke is due to arrive in Cubs camp Friday.
Mar 5 - 10:08 AM

Bruce Rondon (elbow) will throw one more live batting practice session before getting into a Grapefruit League game.

That's what manager Brad Ausmus told reporters Thursday morning. Rondon underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last March, but he is aiming to make the active Opening Day roster and seems to be on track. The hard-throwing right-hander could factor into the mix at closer this season in Detroit if Joe Nathan and Joakim Soria don't rebound.
Mar 5 - 10:06 AM

Hank Conger has some minor soreness in his left wrist.

He'll be held out of Grapefruit League games for a couple of days, but the expectation is that Conger will see some action at catcher over the weekend. The 27-year-old projects to be an active backup this season to Astros starter Jason Castro.
