A.J. Griffin (elbow) threw 35 pitches off the mound on Tuesday.

Griffin, who is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, threw fastballs and changeups. However, he also mixed in some curveballs during a flat-ground session. The A's are hopeful the young right-hander will be ready to contribute around midseason.

Jerome Williams came out of the bullpen to pitch in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees.

Williams was originally scheduled to start the game, but David Buchanan pitched instead. However, it appears that Williams is fine and the Phillies simply decided to flip-flop the order at the last mintue.
Mar 3 - 1:40 PM

Max Scherzer will start the Nationals' Grapefruit League opener Thursday against the Mets.

Scherzer, who signed a seven-year, $210 million contract with Washington over the winter, is expected to throw two innings in his first outing with his new club. He's expected to be followed by Tanner Roark, who currently projects to pitch out of the bullpen this season.
Mar 3 - 1:32 PM

Casey Kelly (groin) hopes to throw a side session on Friday.

Kelly suffered a minor groin strain early last week, but Padres manager Bud Black said Tuesday that he is increasing his intensity of baseball activities. If healthy, the 25-year-old projects to begin the season in the rotation with Triple-A Tucson.
Mar 3 - 1:25 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that free agent right-hander Chris Young is planning to review offers and make a decision on where to sign by the end of the week.

The market for Young was extremely quiet over the winter despite him posting a 3.65 ERA over 29 starts and one relief appearance with the Mariners last season. It's hard to count on him to stay healthy, but he'd be useful rotation depth for a handful of teams.
Mar 3 - 1:22 PM

Jerome Williams was scratched from Tuesday's Grapefruit League start against the Yankees.

No word on the reason for the change, but Williams wasn't present when lineups were announced. David Buchanan made the start instead. The Phillies should pass along an update soon.
Mar 3 - 1:13 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday that the club hasn't finalized a contract with Francisco Rodriguez.

The Brewers outrighted right-hander Brooks Hall to Triple-A on Tuesday, presumably to clear a spot for Rodriguez on the 40-man roster, but the deal isn't official yet. K-Rod is expected to receive a two-year, $13 million deal with a club option for 2017. It's unclear when he'll travel from Venezuela to Brewers' camp.
Mar 3 - 1:03 PM

Luke Hochevar (elbow) faced hitters Tuesday for the first time since Tommy John surgery.

It's a big step for Hochevar, who is nearly a full year removed from Tommy John surgery. He still has some hurdles to cross, but the Royals believe he'll be ready for Opening Day or close to it. He could be a big weapon for a bullpen which was already a strength last season.
