Jimmy Nelson (hamstring) will throw live batting practice Sunday.
Nelson was unable to throw Thursday or Friday, so it is nice to see him back on the hill. He is one of the more popular pitching sleepers heading into the season though he will have to cut down on the walks that have caused problems for him at various minor league stops. Barring a setback, Nelson should be good to go for the start of the regular season. Analysis: Steve Pimental
CF Coco Crisp (pinkeye) is back with the Athletics Sunday.
Coco Crisp is back with the team today, but will not participate in the intrasquad game and is expected to be held out of the first couple Cactus League exhibitions. The 13-year veteran saw his numbers take a dip across the board last season, as he hit for a .246 average while scoring 68 runs and swiping 19 bags. Crisp has eclipsed 135 games just one time in his five years with the A's, and you can expect see his name still available late in deeper league drafts - if you want to roll the dice on the 35-year-old.

The Dodgers signed setup man Mike Adams to a Minor league deal.
The 36-year-old reliever got off to a strong start for the Phillies last season, but was sidelined after just 18.2 innings with shoulder and rotator cuff issues. Adams went 2-1 with a 2.89 ERA over that span, which included 22 games. With Kenley Jansen (foot) expected to miss a few months, the Dodgers continue to add bullpen depth. Until/unless he gets the call to the majors, he can be avoided on all fantasy fronts. Analysis: Keith Tro
