Player AlarmsView All
D. Vogelbach - 1B
Vogelbach reported to camp noticeably trimmer Monday and will compete with Ryon Healy for starting first-base duties during camp, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Vogelbach didn't provide a number for his weight loss, but manager Scott Servais came away impressed with the 26-year-old's body transformation while he faces an important battle this spring. In addition to vying for the top spot on the depth chart at first base -- for which he enters camp as the underdog -- Vogelbach may need to perform well this spring just to keep his spot on the 40-man roster. Vogelbach is out of minor-league options and the lack of defensive versatility he provides may make it difficult for the Mariners to justify keeping him around as a bench piece.

T. Turner - SS
Manager Dave Martinez said he talked to Turner about attempting to steal more bases in 2019, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Turner racked up 43 stolen bases -- good for second most in the majors -- in 52 attempts last season, but Martinez wants the speedy shortstop to finish with closer to 75 or 80 steal attempts in 2019. The increased aggressiveness on the bases would make Turner even more valuable, as the 25-year-old chipped in with a .271 average and 19 homers in 2018.
Added 2:56 pm (EST)
A. Knapp - C
Manager Gabe Kapler said Monday that Knapp is in the "driver's seat" for the Phillies' backup catcher spot, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Knapp's contributions on offense or defense over parts of two seasons in the big leagues haven't been overly impressive, but he's at least shown the ability to take walks at a prodigious clip (13.1 percent). While that may be enough to give him the edge over non-roster invitee Drew Butera for the No. 2 gig, Knapp shouldn't expect to play more than once or twice a week after the Phillies acquired one of the top backstops in baseball this offseason in J.T. Realmuto.

C. Hernández - 2B
Manager Gabe Kapler labeled Hernandez as "an ideal leadoff hitter" earlier in spring training, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
Hernandez has ranked either first or second on the Phillies in starts out of the leadoff role in the past four seasons, slashing .276/.364/.384 while stealing 46 bases across 1,816 career plate appearances out of that lineup spot. Though the 28-year-old's blend of speed and on-base skills back up Kapler's claim, Hernandez's spot in the order was rendered more of a question mark this offseason, when the Phillies added Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura and J.T. Realmuto, three established players who should also merit consideration for favorable lineup slotting. Hernandez's status as the incumbent looks like it may be enough to keep him atop the order to begin the season, but he may not have a long leash if he struggles in the early going now that there are some more appealing alternatives available than in years past.

L. Basabe - CF
Basabe suffered a broken hamate bone in his left hand and will be sidelined for approximately 12 weeks, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Basabe apparently suffered the injury during batting practice earlier in the week. He's scheduled to have surgery in Chicago on Wednesday, during which his hamate bone will be removed. If everything goes as planned, the 22-year-old will resume baseball activities in 4-to-6 weeks, putting him on track for a return to game action around mid-May. Once healthy, Basabe will likely report to Double-A Birmingham.
Added 2:20 pm (EST)
A. Rosario - SS
Manager Mickey Callaway said Rosario will likely hit eighth, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.
Rosario spent most of his time hitting either first or last for the Mets in 2018. Following the offseason addition of veteran Jed Lowrie, it sounds like the youngster will begin the season situated near the bottom of New York's lineup, which could cut into his stolen base total -- he managed 16 of his 24 steals from the top of the order last season. Rosario made 22 starts from the eight hole in 2018, slashing .260/.333/.425 with two stolen bases in those appearances.

S. Alcantara - SP
Alcantara will start the Marlins' Grapefruit League opener Saturday versus the Cardinals, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
Given that pitchers and catchers reported to camp just 10 days before the exhibition opener, Alcantara probably won't be asked to cover more than an inning or two. The right-hander will probably need at least a few impressive showings during the Grapefruit League slate to beat out one of Caleb Smith, Wei-Yin Chen, Dan Straily and Trevor Richards for a rotation spot. Jose Urena is the only Marlins pitcher to have officially clinched one of the five spots after manager Don Mattingly recently named the right-hander the team's Opening Day starter.

D. Smith - LF
Smith will only play first base this spring, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Smith played 13 games in left field last season as the Mets attempted to find ways to get him playing time. At the moment, though, his bat isn't good enough to play anywhere, let alone first base, as he's hit just .210/.259/.406 in 105 major-league games. With Peter Alonso about to arrive, Smith doesn't appear to have an obvious place in the short term or long term with the Mets.
