- Team USA advanced to the final round of the World Baseball Classic after knocking off Dominican Republic. Now that we care about this international event because America is winning, I’m heading to Wal-Mart to get a few flags and some random apparel with the stars and stripes on them. Adam Jones is the man.
- Pirates infielder Jung Ho Kang is still in South Korea waiting to obtain his US visa. Kang had his eight month prison sentence for DUI charges suspended for two years because that is something professional athletes can do.
- Marlins infielder Martin Prado is likely to miss Opening Day after straining his hamstring in the World Baseball Classic.
- Tigers outfielder JD Martinez suffered a sprained right foot after rolling his ankle during a spring training game. X-rays were negative so the slugger should miss limited time.
- Indians pitcher Cody Anderson will undergo Tommy John surgery. Anderson had already underwent arthroscopic debridement of his right elbow in November, which sources tell me is some sort of surgery.
