MLB/MLBPA panel is deadlocked over whether Josh Hamilton should be sent to rehab.

Hamilton's fate rested in the hands of four people, and the votes were split on whether or not to send the former All-Star to rehab. Hamilton was known to have failed at least six drug tests as a minor leaguer and was suspended from baseball from 2004 to 2006. He is in the third year of a five-year, $125 million deal and the Angels are hoping that he is on the field. He has been a bust since inking this contract and he is worth no more than a last round draft pick, especially with this relapse news. Analysis: Colby Conway

Angels and Huston Street are expected to begin exchanging formal offers soon.

Street was a top 5 closer last season after his trade from San Diego to Los Angeles, and his value continues to rise as he had 41 saves last season. The Angels look to lock up their closer long-term, and appears to be closing in to a solution. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Rays are signing Jim Miller to a minor-league deal and inviting him to spring training.

Miller was a Yankee last year, but only appeared in two innings and has only appeared in 60+ innings in his six seasons in the major leagues. The Rays are always looking for discounts, but his fantasy value is very limited and he already starts at a disadvantage as he will be in the minors. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Manager Lloyd McClendon said Danny Hultzen should throw in a game by the end of the week.

Hultzen missed all of 2014 while rehabbing to repair a torn labrum, torn anterior capsule, and partially torn rotator cuff, but the prospect has made a steady recovery from the injury and should be close to a full return. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Roberto Baldoquin could join the Angels as early as this weekend. He has been dealing with visa issues.

The 20-year old Cuban was signed by the Angels this offseason and while he is stuck in the Dominican Republic at the moment he should be ready for minor league camp by this weekend at best. He could make it to the big leagues late this season, though that is certainly a long shot. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Jeremy Hellickson (rib cage) said he felt fine after throwing a bullpen session Tuesday.

Hellickson is dealing with a rib cage cramp but it is not considered serious and he should be able to make a Spring Training appearance soon. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Update: Manager Ned Yost says Tim Collins has left medial elbow soreness/tightness. He hopes to have an MRI on Thursday.

Gulp. While it's too early to jump to conclusions, elbow injuries are never a good thing. That being said, it was Collins first real work of the year, so being rusty may be the culprit here. Nonetheless, the relief pitcher who is battling for a spot in the Royals' stacked bullpen will likely get an MRI on Thursday to determine the severity of the injury. The 25-year old, notably just 5' 7", 170 lbs., faced four hitters before leaving the game. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Charlie Blackmon was not in the lineup Wednesday due to slight abdominal pain.

It's Spring Training, so there's no need to make guys play through any injuries at the moment. Blackmon's injury appears to be very minor, probably just a tweak of the muscle or soreness, and the fact that he took batting practice prior to the game further cements the notion that the injury is nothing to worry about. But, given the Rockies plethora of injury prone players, it wouldn't be a surprise for Colorado to hold Blackmon out for another day or two just to be safe. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Zach Putnam was scratched because of a stomach issue.

A stomach issue is certainly better than a shoulder issue. Putnam may need a few days, but he should be good to go by the weekend. Analysis: David Kerr

Update: Ji-Man Choi has a fractured right fibula.

Terrible news for Choi. A fractured fibula is going to keep him out of action for several months, if not the entire season. We should have an updated timetable for Choi in the coming days. Analysis: David Kerr

Tim Collins left Wednesday's spring training game with trainer Nick Kenney.

There was no reason given as to why Collins left the game, but leaving with a trainer is never usually a good sign. We will have an update on his status soon. Analysis: David Kerr

David Peralta exited Wednesday's spring training game after being hit by a pitch.

There is no word as to where Peralta was plunked, but we should have an update on his status Wednesday night. Peralta is in line to start in left field for the Diamondbacks this season. Analysis: David Kerr

Lucas Duda (intercostal muscle) took swings off a tee Wednesday.

Duda is dealing with an oblique strain, so the Mets certainly don't want to rush him back too quickly. As long as he doesn't have a setback, he'll continue moving forward over the next few weeks. Analysis: David Kerr Mobile App
