Afternoon In The Central

I'm sorry for not having more time for a full link list today, I've got a lot to get done away from home today so I'm just going to touch on a few important topics that I haven't had a chance to cover yet.

First and most importantly, the White Sox Jake Peavy made a successful return to the mound last night throwing two hitless innings walking one and striking out two. You really can't hope for much better than that. I'm throwing the link for this one to Kevin Pajor of Southside Showdown.

Also from the encouraging injury news department, Joe Nathan has now worked two solid frames for the Twins. Reports have him at 86-95 so make of those what you will, but he's shown good command and is missing some bats.

Justin Morneau recently went and saw a doctor in hopes of being cleared to resume playing. He wasn't. Still, Morneau is doing full workouts and practices, fielding and has hit the stuffing out of the ball in BP, so this seems to be more a matter of time than a matter of concern. Cody Christie has a really fantastic roundup of all the pertinent Twins news from week one of spring training.

All of the young Royals that everyone is so excited about are showing why this spring. Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas have been murdering the ball while players like Alcides Escobar and Lorenzo Cain have been running wild.  One the mound, John Lamb and Tim Collins have been two of the early standouts.

Tony Lastoria of Indians Prospect Insider just keeps cranking out the prospect profiles. Alex Lavinsky (#17), Felix Sterling (#16), and Hector Rondon (#15) are the latest.
