Nate McLouth (shoulder) expects to be ready for the beginning of the 2015 regular season.
And he could start in left field on Opening Day if Jayson Werth (shoulder) isn't ready. McLouth underwent surgery last August to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He's nearly up to speed with the other position players in Nats camp this spring.
Trevor Plouffe (illness) got back to work Monday morning in Twins camp.
Plouffe sat out of team workouts Saturday and Sunday due to a mild illness. It wasn't a serious concern.
Jose Fernandez (elbow) threw a successful bullpen session on Sunday, the first time he's done so since undergoing Tommy John surgery last May.
The All-Star right-hander threw 15 pitches during the session, all fastballs. Fernandez estimated that his velocity was at about 50-55 percent and that everything felt "really, really normal". He'll repeat the process on Thursday, then will throw regularly on Mondays and Thursdays each week. He remains on track to rejoin the Marlins at some point in mid-to-late June.
Daniel Bard (shoulder) threw a successful bullpen session without issue on Sunday.
The 29-year-old hurler hasn't pitched in the big leagues since the 2013 season, and hasn't been effective at any level since 2011. He's battling his way back from thoracic outlet surgery and plans on challenging for a spot in the Cubs bullpen.
Gavin Floyd (elbow) successfully made it through his first live batting practice session on Sunday without issue.
It's the first time that the veteran right-hander had faced a live hitter since sustaining his elbow injury in June. Floyd wound up throwing around 50 pitches including warm-ups and came away from the session feeling good. He'll repeat the exercise again on Wednesday.
Jim Henderson (shoulder) threw live batting practice on Sunday for the first time since undergoing surgery in August to repair his right labrum and rotator cuff.
The veteran right-hander said he felt good after the session, though his command wasn't where he wanted it to be. The next step could be for Henderson to get into game action at some point next week, and barring any setbacks he appears to be on track for the start of the regular season.
Chase Utley will not play in the Phillies Grapefruit League opener against the Yankees on Tuesday.
The Phillies insist that the veteran infielder is fine, they are simply being cautious as Utley recovers from a mild ankle sprain he incurred while working out in January. The 36-year-old has still been participating in workouts and has been taking batting practice, and should appear in game action before the end of the week.
While he's competing for the team's starting job at second base, Gordon Beckham is seeing work all over the infield early in the spring.
The former top prospect is getting work at shortstop and third base as well, as he prepares for what could wind up being a super utility role for the White Sox. Even if he loses out to Micah Johnson or Carlos Sanchez in the battle at second base, the more time that he sees on the field, the better his chances of carving out value as a middle infielder in AL-only formats.
