Athletics' Santiago Casilla: Could be in camp within 1-2 days
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casilla still has not reported to camp, but the A's are hopeful he will be able to report within 1-2 days, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Casilla has been delayed by a visa issue as he returns from his home in the Dominican Republic. Signed as a free agent this offseason, the reliever is expected to compete for a setup role behind closer Ryan Madson after spending the last seven seasons with the crosstown Giants. Even if Casilla does report to camp, he won't be there long. The World Baseball Classic begins for the Dominican on March 9.

Athletics' Henderson Alvarez: Will throw bullpen session for scouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez (shoulder) says he will throw a bullpen session in March for interested teams, Manolo Hernandez of Beisbol Porgotas reports.

Alvarez has dealt with a flurry of injuries over the last two seasons, including a shoulder surgery that ended his 2016 campaign. The right-hander was an All-Star in 2014 for Miami, when he compiled a 2.65 ERA and 111 strikeouts in 30 starts. Injuries have gotten the best of him since that point, but Alvarez says he is throwing at 120 feet and several teams have asked for updates recently. Look for the 26-year-old to land a minor league contract somewhere down the line.

Athletics' Andrew Triggs: Projected for Cactus League debut next Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Triggs, competing for the fifth starter job with Jesse Hahn, will make his Cactus League debut next Tuesday against the Indians, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

While Hahn will get first crack to make his case for the role by pitching in the spring training opener against the Cubs on Saturday, Triggs will take his initial turn against opposing hitters following Jharel Cotton in what will be Oakland's fourth exhibition tilt. Triggs and Hahn should wage an intriguing battle for the last spot in the rotation, with the former looking to build on his brief but solid debut stint in 2016 that included 55 strikeouts in 56.1 innings.

Cotton will be followed Tuesday by Andrew Triggs, who is competing for the fifth starter job with Jesse Hahn.

Athletics' Sean Manaea: To see first game action Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Manaea will make his Cactus League debut Monday against the Giants, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Manaea is projected to follow Sonny Gray, who is expected to open the game. The A's projected No. 2 starter, Manaea is looking to follow up an encouraging 24-start rookie campaign with a breakout 2017 as a pivotal part of the rotation. One of the more interesting aspects to monitor in his initial appearance should be Manaea's use of his slider, which he is focusing on developing this spring as a third pitch alongside his fastball and changeup.
