Prince remains without a definite timetable for his return to the
The Reds are lacking other veteran alternatives to win bench roles, and they hope to have Jesse Winker begin 2017 back in Triple-A Louisville. Moreover, their starting outfield of Adam Duvall, Billy Hamilton and especially Scott Schebler are somewhat vulnerable to losing playing time.
The 25-year-old played his first two seasons out of Pittsburgh with the Browns before spending 2016 without a team. The 49ers have reportedly had their eye on Williams, and have opted to give him a shot with a club. He drew 10 starts during his 26 games with the Browns, while recording recording 77 tackles, two sacks, 10 passes defended, and three forced fumbles in the process. He figures to compete for a backup role at free safety providing depth behind Eric Reid.
Price took a hard shot to the shoulder in warmups and left the ice early, but will start Tuesday.
Price took a hard from Paul Byron in warmups and left this ice. Nevertheless, he will be in the net tonight looking for his second win of February (1-5-0).
Kazmir (ribs) threw a lengthy bullpen session -- his second in the past three days -- and appears to be healthy heading into Cactus League action, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Kazmir was shut down at the tail end of last season with intercostal spasms, but with two pain-free bullpen sessions in the books, it appears he is ready to compete for the Dodgers' fifth rotation spot. With 11 starting pitchers in camp and only one spot currently up for grabs, the veteran will have to stand out this spring to earn that final bid. Kazmir posted a sub-par 4.56 ERA in 26 starts with the Dodgers last year. His strikeouts (8.9 K/9) and walks (3.4 BB/9) were around his career marks, but the southpaws inability to keep the ball in the yard (1.4 HR/9) caused the steep jump in ERA from his 3.10 mark in 2015.
