Randal Grichuk (back) took swings off a tee and off soft toss on Sunday.

He expects to go through a full workout on Monday. Grichuk rested for a couple days due to lower back soreness, but it was never considered to be a big deal.

Jon Jay (wrist) will not play in any Grapefruit League games this week.

Jay is coming back from offseason surgery on his left wrist and has only done hitting in a batting cage so far. He'll progress to hitting off a machine this week and is not in any danger of not being ready for Opening Day. "This is about April 5," Jay said. "That's the date that matters. I'm getting ready for April 5. I have five weeks now to be ready."

Mike Vorkunov of the Star-Ledger reports that the Mets have concerns that Juan Lagares' right elbow "will be bothersome" this season.

Lagares was shut down with a couple weeks left in last season due to a sprain in the elbow. He didn't require surgery, but apparently a winter of rest hasn't totally alleviated concerns. The Mets will monitor Lagares' elbow closely in hopes of keeping the ailment under control.

Rays pitching prospect Mike Montgomery will be used as a reliever during spring training.

The former top prospect just hasn't developed as hoped as a starter and the Rays have decided to finally try him out in the bullpen. Montgomery's stuff figures to play up in relief, giving him a shot to be an impact arm in Tampa's bullpen. With Jake McGee (elbow) slated to miss the first month of the season, Montgomery could be a dark horse to crack the Opening Day roster.

Mets manager Terry Collins indicated on Sunday that he's leaning towards playing Curtis Granderson in right field this season.

That would put Michael Cuddyer in left field -- a position where he's made only three starts at the major league level. The reason that he's played so little at the position is because he's deaf in his left ear, but that's apparently not a major concern for the Mets. The players will split time in right field this spring before Collins makes an official decision.
Mar 1 - 1:13 PM

Padres manager Bud Black said Sunday that the club is not ruling out Brandon Maurer being a starter over the long-term.

"He's got the ability to start," Black said. "We're not ruling that out long-term." Maurer has a career 6.62 ERA as a starter and 3.75 ERA as a reliever, though it should be noted that he's just 24. While it's possible he could be a starter again at some point, he has the potential to be a dominant reliever.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Sunday that he's expecting Garrett Richards (knee) to rejoin the rotation 2-3 weeks into the season.

The club had previously not dismissed the possibility of Richards being ready by Opening Day, but they've now conceded that he'll begin the season on the disabled list. His recovery from patella tendon surgery is going well, though, as he's throwing bullpen sessions and will do simulated pitchers' fielding practice on Sunday. Richards is coming off a breakout 2014 campaign that included a 2.61 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 164/51 K/BB ratio over 168 2/3 innings.
Mar 1 - 12:00 PM

Rockies placed RHP Tyler Chatwood on the 60-day disabled list with a right elbow injury.

The move frees up a 40-man roster spot for John Axford. Chatwood will miss the majority of the 2015 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery.
