Freddie Freeman has been dealing with some dryness in his eyes. Freeman met with the team optometrist, who said he has some "abrasions in the whites of his eyes."

The condition is being treated with drops and a gel that Freeman puts into his eyes at night before he goes to sleep. Apparently he also had his eyes lids and tear ducts cleaned out which should get them producing tears and moisture to keep his eyes properly lubricated. With an off-day Thursday, Freeman says that he should receive enough consistent treatment and be ready to go for Friday's game.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Miguel Cabrera (foot) took batting practice Wednesday for the second straight day.

The eight-time All Star and soon-to-be 32-year-old, is in the final stages of rehabilitation from offseason ankle surgery and has been able to take batting practice for the second straight day. The Tigers' are hoping everything will fall into place so that Miggy is ready to go out of the gate, but if not, it should be shortly thereafter.  Analysis: Keith Tro

JaVale McGee, a free agent after being released by Philadelphia on Sunday, has drawn the interest of Golden State,

The Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat are also expected to make a strong push for JaVale McGee. He is averaging 4.6 points, 2.7 points and 0.9 blocks in 23 games this season.  Analysis: Keith Tro

Nikola Pekovic (ankle) is still listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

Nikola Pekovic (ankle) sat out Monday's game against the Clippers and is questionable Wednesday verse the Nuggets, although he has said that he wants to give it a go tonight in Denver. Pekovic is likely going to be a game-time decision, but if he is unable to go Gorgui Dieng becomes the primary beneficiary. Check back with us soon as his status will be updated following the team's morning shoot-around.  Analysis: Keith Tro

Marreese Speights pleaded no contest to reduced charges stemming from an arrest in Tampa and charged with suspicion of DUI last August.

The NBA is expected to review the matter in order to determine whether or not a suspension is warranted. Marreese Speights is averaging 111.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 0.5 blocks in 17 minutes with the Warriors this season. Fantasy owners may want to look for alternative options, as his meager numbers can't be doing much for your fantasy squad anyway.  Analysis: Keith Tro

Jarrell Eddie will sign a 10-day contract with the Hawks on Thursday.

The undrafted free agent out of Virginia Tech, Jarrell Eddie won the D-League's Three-Point Shootout during the All-Star weekend, and will now be given the opportunity to log his first minute in the NBA with the Atlanta Hawks. The team had one vacant roster spot, so no one is being sent to the Developmental League as a result of this signing. We'll have to see what the Hawks' have in mind for their new three-point threat.  Analysis: Keith Tro

Tigers have released RHP Joel Hanrahan after learning he will need to undergo a second Tommy John surgery.

This is terrible news for the 33-year-old reliever and could very-well prove to be career ending injury. The two-time All Star, over nine big-league seasons, has a career 3.85 ERA, 9.8 K/9 rate, 100 saves and 441 strikeouts across 404.2 innings pitched.  Analysis: Keith Tro

Clay Buchholz only threw 13 pitches in his spring debut Tuesday, but he was pleased with the results. Buchholz faced three batters in Boston's 2-1 win over Northeastern University, and he said that his offseason work on his delivery has already begun to pay dividends.

“It felt good, I felt good with everything,” Buchholz said in regards to his short outing. “I only threw 13 pitches, but I tried to throw each of my pitches, and the ball was moving like it’s supposed to, I guess, like I wanted it to.” Durability has been an issue for the 30-year-old pitcher, as he has never logged more than 173.2 innings during his eight-year career. Last season, Buchholz posted a 5.34 ERA over 170.1 innings, but is a top candidate for the opening day starter spot so long as he can make it through spring without incident. He's worth a draft pick in all fantasy formats.  Analysis: Keith Tro

Luis Avilan, James Russell and Josh Outman appear to be the top left-handed candidates to fill what might just be two available spots in Atlanta's bullpen.

Crowding the situation even further, Manger Freddi Gonzalez has indicated that non-roster invitee Donnie Veal and prospect Manny Banuelos may also begin the regular season in the bullpen. The Atlanta Braves have about month's worth of Grapefruit League games to help flush out this "problem." According to Luis Avilan,"I feel like all the work I've done in the offseason is really paying off." I feel really good with my bullpen [sessions] and my live BP. I've been feeling really good with my pitches. The location has been really good, better than last year."  Analysis: Keith Tro
