Joe Philbin said Knowshon Moreno's conditioning is pretty good for this time of year but there's room for improvement before camp.
No one is surprised that Moreno is running ahead of Lamar Miller, Daniel Thomas, and Mike Gillislee in Miami are they? Miller is the most talented pure runner on Miami's roster, but Moreno is just more reliable at this point and not to mention his superior passing blocking ability. The Dolphins will still play the running back by committee game but once the dust settles Moreno will come out on top in the end because of his consistency over the length of the season. New play caller Bill Lazor hails from Philadelphia, a run-heavy team. So expect the Dolphins' team rushing attempts to take a significant 2014 leap. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Alex Avila feels he's ready to return as the Tigers everyday catcher.
While Avila feels he's ready again for full-time duty, manager Brad Ausmus and the Tigers have been down this road with him all too often. He id as injury-prone as a guy can be and while this most-recent issue involved the knee, you can't help but remember the concussion issues that have plagued him over the last few seasons. One wrong foul tip and he could be done. He might see the lion's share of a platoon, but it seems doubtful that he would just be handed over the reins after such a lengthy absence and injury history.

Yankees announce Nathan Eovaldi will start on Wednesday.
Eovaldi gets the ball on normal rest while Adam Warren will slide to the bullpen. After being acquired from the Marlins, Eovaldi has had a rough time in New York with a 1.543 WHIP and 4.81 ERA, both the highest in his career. His xFIP is almost a full run lower at 3.84 meaning he could see some good fortune in the near future. Analysis: Rob Trayah
