Jarrod Parker (elbow) threw all of his pitches in a bullpen session on Tuesday.

Parker underwent Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career in March last year. The 26-year-old should be expected back around midseason. Parker owns a career 3.68 ERA with a 275/127 K/BB ratio in 384 innings.
Mar 3 - 11:52 AM

Ryan Madson (back) is expected to play catch on Tuesday.

Madson suffered a minor back injury doing squats over the weekend and was scratched from pitching on Monday. The veteran right-hander signed a minor league deal with the Royals in January and is likely to serve as bullpen depth in the minors until he can prove he can be effective and healthy.
Mar 3 - 11:45 AM

Mitch Moreland (ankle) isn't likely to play in Cactus League games for the Rangers until next week.

Moreland will run the bases on Tuesday on his reconstructed right ankle. The 29-year-old took over at first base following Prince Fielder's injury last season before his ankle ended his season. Moreland should face plenty of right-handed pitching out of the DH slot in 2015.
Mar 3 - 11:28 AM

Kyle Lohse will start Thursday's Cactus League opener against the Angels.

Mike Fiers will start Wednesday when the Brewers take on the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Matt Garza will start Friday against the Dodgers. Lohse, 36, is coming off of another strong season. He finished 2014 with a 3.54 ERA and a 141/45 K/BB ratio in 198 1/3 innings. Lohse should provide decent late-round value in fantasy leagues again.
Mar 3 - 11:20 AM

Derek Holland (shoulder) could throw a bullpen as soon as Thursday.

Holland will long toss over the next few days, which will provide a better gauge of where he's at. The left-hander was a recent scratch in an intrasquad game as a result of discomfort in his left shoulder. Holland is hoping to pick up where he left off last September after a long road back from microfracture knee surgery in January. In 37 innings, the 28-year-old posted a 1.46 ERA with a 25/5 K/BB ratio.
Mar 3 - 11:09 AM

Jerome Williams will start in the Phillies' Grapefruit League opener Tuesday against the Yankees.

Others scheduled to pitch include David Buchanan, Joely Rodriguez, Jeanmar Gomez, Mario Hollands, Sean O'Sullivan, and Luis Garcia. The Phillies re-signed Williams to a one-year deal worth $2.5 million following a successful two-month stint with the club at the end of last season. In 57 1/3 innings, the right-hander posted a 2.83 ERA with a 38/17 K/BB ratio. Williams likely will be traded at some point during the season.
Mar 3 - 10:40 AM

Brewers re-signed RHP Francisco Rodriguez to a two-year, $13 million contract.

The deal, which includes a $6 million club option for 2017, is now official after being reported last week, as Rodriguez has been added to the 40-man roster. The Brewers outrighted RHP Brooks Hall to Triple-A Colorado Springs to make room for him. Rodriguez will be back in the closer's role for the Brewers after posting a 3.04 ERA with 44 saves and a 73/18 K/BB ratio in 68 innings last season.
Mar 3 - 10:33 AM

Brewers sent RHP Brooks Hall outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

The move opens up a spot on the 40-man roster to add reliever Francisco Rodriguez. Hall, 24, compiled a 2.77 ERA with a 16/7 K/BB ratio in 26 innings at Double-A Huntsville in 2014. He missed most of the season due to bone spurs in his right elbow.
