Here's the latest in bumps and bruises around the league:
Doug Fister Leaves Game, Headed to DL with Muscle Strain | The Detroit News
The Tigers are calling it a left costochondral strain for starting pitcher Doug Fister. Others might call it a rib strain.
Quentin Upbeat as he Continues Rehab from Surgery | Padres Notes
Carlos Quentin is in a positive state of mind even as he finds himself in a precarious position.
Baker to See Altchek for Second Opinion on his Elbow | Star Tribune
The Twins announced last night that the results of Scott Baker's MRI exam today were similar "structurally" to the one he had in July 2011 and that he plans to get a second opinion next week from Dr. David Altchek in New York.
Twins rookie right-hander Liam Hendriks is in the hospital because of food poisoning, and will miss his scheduled start against the Orioles today.
Anthony Rendon, the Nationals' top pick in last summer's draft, suffered an apparent left leg injury tonight while rounding third base during high-Class A Potomac's game at Lynchburg.
Jorge De La Rosa possesses talent that could force a seismic shift in the standings. He quietly threw in a 45-pitch simulated game Tuesday, clearly another important hurdle with his surgically repaired elbow while remaining on pace to return to the big leagues in June.
Dustin McGowan still not throwing. Foot improving. Shoulder strengthening regimen followed temporary soreness that arose when he tried tossing.
