Red Sox LHP Drew Pomeranz on offseason stem-cell injection to relieve elbow soreness. "They kind of scrape (flexor) tendon to create some bleeding and then they shoot stem cells on top. I was fine 5 minutes into it, then about 20 minutes later I couldn't bend my arm for 5 days."

One Cubs theme this spring is "humility." Joe Maddon wants to see it from his players after winning the World Series. It was one point of their pre warm up talk led by strength coach Tim Buss on Monday and will continue to be addressed in camp.

Joe Girardi on A-Rod: "Mr. Steinbrenner always gave people second and third chances and brought people back to the organization that had done really good things for the organization. There are situations that happen that aren't always so positive. That didn't keep Mr. Steinbrenner from bringing them back before. Hal [Steinbrenner] is doing the same thing."

Alex Rodriguez will arrive in Yankees camp on Tuesday. The fact he is making a triumphant return after not being allowed to finish out his 10-year, $275 million contract on the field is a testament to the incredible change in the relationship between the team and its special adviser since his season long suspension in 2014.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Jon Niese will vie for a bullpen spot.

The Dodgers remain encouraged about LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu, who had another positive throwing session Sunday. "Ryu still has a smile on his face about how well he threw," manager Dave Roberts said. "That was exciting. He said he feels good today." Ryu has pitched in just one game the last two years because of shoulder and elbow procedures.

New Dodgers OF Franklin Gutierrez and current manager Dave Roberts were in the same Dodgers spring training camp as players in 2003. Gutierrez was just a top prospect then, but as carved out a solid 11-year career since. "He was a lot lighter back then," Roberts joked, "but always a good athlete, good defender. It's nice that we do have some history."
