DeAndre Jordan finished with 13 points, game-high 16 rebounds (six offensive), three assists, two steals, and two blocks as the Clippers picked up a franchise record 57th win.

Ironically Jordan posted his 42nd double-double on what was Jackie Robinson day in baseball. Jordan has doubled up in all but one of the team's six games this month and has more than tripled his previous career best of 12 double-doubles. ANALYST: Michael Pichan

Mike Adams has been told he won't make Dodgers opening day roster. He'll start regular season in Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Adams allowed five earned runs in just 4 2/3 innings this spring and just didn't appear to have the command or velocity he once had. It is not yet known as to whether or not he will accept the assignment or try and move on elsewhere. Analysis: Howard Bender

Mark Teixeira was held out of the spring lineup again Tuesday due to a bruised knee. Manager Joe Girardi said he'll return on Wednesday.

This is more of a precautionary sit than anything else. Given Teixeira's recent injury history, Girardi will err on the side of caution rather than push his first baseman into action before he is ready. Consider Tex day-to-day here. Analysis: Howard Bender

Mets pitchers Bobby Parnell (elbow, hamstring) and Vic Black (shoulder) will see action in a minor-league game on Wednesday.

Neither will start the regular season on-time, but both are expected back before the end of April. Parnell is the one to own if you're looking for saves. He may not get the job back right away, but manager terry Collins is sure to give him some opportunities. Analysis: Howard Bender

Elvis Andrus (lower back stiffness) says he will resume baseball activities Wednesday.

The injury isn't said to be anything major and Andrus doesn't really need to play every day right now to get ready for Opening Day. He should be good to go after a little bit of rest, so you shouldn't be concerned as a fantasy owner. Analysis: Howard Bender

Jim Henderson thinks his velocity will improve with time. He was at 90-91 mph Monday.

Henderson lost almost 2-mph off his fastball last year and it continues to diminish. While he may feel confident that it will improve with time, we'll have to take a "believe it when we see it" stance here. If he does regain it, then he should be a decent source for holds. Analysis: Howard Bender

Update: Domonic Brown (Achilles) could "very likely" miss more than first week of the season.

This might fall under the category "If a tree falls in the woods and there's no one around." If Brown misses more than just the first week of the season, will the Phillies really miss him? Sure, Grady Sizemore, Jordan Danks and/or Jeff Francoeur are no great shakes, but Brown is so streaky that you just never know when he's actually worth using, especially for fantasy purposes. We'll track his progress and see if the Phillies set up a new return timetable. Analysis: Howard Bender

Draymond Green (shin) will not play Tuesday against the Clippers.

As expected, the Warriors will not push Green back into the lineup until he is back to 100-percent. With a playoff spot already clinched, there are few concerns with the tail-end of the season. David Lee and Marreese Speights should see the extra work in his absence. Analysis: Howard Bender

Tanner Scheppers (sprained ankle) will likely start the season on the disabled list.

Scheppers injury isn't considered major and he may only miss the first two weeks. Once he returns, he will resume his usual late-inning set-up role. Analysis: Howard Bender

Rays released Alexi Casilla on Tuesday.

Not much of a surprise here as the Rays have solid middle infield depth and Casilla's struggles at the plate have always been well-documented. He may try to catch on with another team soon. Analysis: Howard Bender

Pat Beverley had successful wrist surgery Tuesday.

Beverley had surgery to repair torn ligaments in his wrist and will miss the rest of the season. The Rockets expect him to be ready for the start of next year though. Analysis: Howard Bender
