Brett Anderson threw to live hitters Wednesday for the first time this spring.

Anderson is recovering slowly from August surgery to repair a herniated disk in his back, and he'd only thrown bullpen sessions before Wednesday. Anderson is still on track to be ready for the start of the regular season. It's unclear where he fits in the Dodgers' plans at this point, though.

A four-person panel is split on whether Josh Hamilton should have to enter a rehabilitation program for drug abuse, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The panel, which consists of two attorneys and two physicians, is at a deadlock. As a result, an arbitrator will join the group to break the tie. A source also said officials are determining whether to classify Hamilton as a fourth-time offender, a penalty that normally carries at least a one-year suspension. New commissioner Rob Manfred would have the final say on a potential suspension's length, though. A decision wasn't expected much before Opening Day, and it's unclear at this point how long the process will take with the extra steps now involved. Stay tuned.

Matt Reynolds has been sidelined by a sore right oblique.

Reynolds missed throwing a batting practice session Wednesday due to the ailment. It's another setback for the southpaw, who's still recovering from Tommy John surgery in September 2013. Reynolds' elbow isn't giving him problems, though, and he said he expects to be back on the mound sooner than later. The 30-year-old has a shot at winning a bullpen job with the D'backs if he can stay healthy.

Rays signed RHP Jim Miller to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Miller had a good year with the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate in 2014 and now joins the fight over the final few spots in the Rays' bullpen. The 32-year-old right-hander posted a 3.30 ERA and 60/20 K/BB ratio over 57 1/3 minor league innings last season for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Mar 4 - 8:06 PM

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish said reliever Jim Miller is expected to sign somewhere soon.

Cotillo said Miller will almost certainly get a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. Miller had a 3.30 ERA and 60/20 K/BB ratio over 57 1/3 innings in the Yankees' minor league system last season, but he hasn't been able to find a team this winter. As pitchers start to get injured, though, the 32-year-old should find a home sooner than later.
Mar 4 - 8:02 PM

MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez reports Huston Street and the Angels are expected to exchange offers on a potential contract extension soon.

The sides had exploratory talks over the winter but broke off their discussions when pitchers and catchers reported to Arizona. Street, who represents himself, is said to be looking for a contract between Andrew Miller's four-year, $36 million contract and David Robertson's four-year, $46 million contract. He's set to make $7 million in the final year of his deal before hitting the free agent market this fall.

Marcus Semien stayed hot Wednesday, going 2-for-2 with a walk and three RBI in a Cactus League win over the Giants.

Semien is now 5-for-5 with a walk and six RBI in six plate appearances this spring. The 24-year-old shortstop was one of the focal points for the Athletics in the Jeff Samardzija trade, and he's showing why early in camp. Semien is penciled in as the Athletics' starting shortstop and he should be on AL-only fantasy radars -- if not as a flier in deep mixed leagues -- this draft season.
Mar 4 - 6:58 PM

Jesse Chavez allowed two hits and a walk over two scoreless innings in a win over the Giants in the Cactus League Wednesday.

Chavez struck out one batter on the afternoon. The 31-year-old thrived as a starter in the first half of 2014, posting a 3.14 ERA in 19 starts, but he faded down the stretch, was removed from the rotation after July and was scarcely used in September. Chavez has a chance to win a rotation spot this month, and in a young A's staff his starting experience could give him an edge.
