All you need to know: MLB news, rumors from Feb. 23
Our daily update includes mentions of the Yankees, Angels, Pirates, Red Sox, Reds, Rockies, Cardinals, Orioles, Phillies, Rangers and Tigers.
If we count spring training games, this is the last Sunday without baseball until the World Series is concluded. That just sounds awesome, doesn't it? Anywho, let's get to the daily rundown.
REPORTS, RUMORS and SPECULATION
Johan Santana: He's drawing interest from at least three AL clubs and aims for a June season debut.
Rockies: They have decided against playing Carlos Gonzalez full-time in center field. Instead, he'll stay in left with Drew Stubbs, Charlie Blackmon and Corey Dickerson the options in center (MLB.com).
Orioles: Pitching prospect Dylan Bundy is continuing to progress in his recovery from Tommy John surgery. He is throwing at 75 percent and could throw at 180 feet as soon as Thursday (baltimoresun.com).
Rockies: Starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin has been shut down with shoulder inflammation and is going to have an MRI.
Tigers: Alex Avila missed his second straight day of workouts due to back spasms, but he should get back in the swing of things Monday. Reliever Bruce Rondon threw live batting practice after missing a few days due to allergies. Finally, Justin Verlander is scheduled to throw his first live bullpen session of the spring -- he's coming off core muscle surgery -- Monday (Mlive.com).
