MLB Roundup Feb. 24

The players have reported to camp, unless of course your name is Odalis Perez, and spring training exhibition games start tomorrow in both leagues. Check out the games below to see who your team is kicking off against.

A few bits of older news here but it's worth mentioning:

Vernon Wells looks set to be out for about four weeks after injuring his left hamstring in drills on Monday. The Blue Jays CF was hampered by the same injury last year and missed a month of the season. Jose Bautista will replace him while he recovers.

After dealing with shoulder problems last season and spending time on the DL Carlos Zambrano says he "Feels the best I've ever felt in spring training." The Cubs want to be conservative with him though and rightly so.

And finally ESPN is reporting that the Atlanta Braves have agreed on a one-year deal worth $2.5 million with OF Garret Anderson after missing out of Ken Griffey Jr., who returned to Seattle. The 36-year old Anderson won the World Series in 2002 and will likely team with Matt Diaz in left for the Braves.
