P.J. Hairston has NBA talent, but he dropped to No. 26 in the 2014 NBA draft due to questionable character issues. The Charlotte Hornets took a chance on Hairston, but so far it looks like a bad gamble as once again he's in trouble.
Yoenis Cespedes has yet to play a game for the Tigers, but he already is talking about making Detroit his long-term home.

As I noted earlier this week, the Denver Broncos tight end corps could be in major flux this offseason, as Julius Thomas, Virgil Green and Jacob Tamme are scheduled to be unrestricted free agents.

Broncos chief John Elway said he sees tight end as a strength in this year's draft, but they also could take a shot at replenishing the position via free agency, should Thomas or others depart.

Last spring, the Seattle Mariners came to camp with Brad Miller and Nick Franklin competing for the job of starting shortstop. Miller won the job with a monster performance in Cactus League play (1.314 OPS), but failed to maintain his stroke during the regular season, posting a .221/.288/.365 slash line.

Franklin ended up being traded to Tampa Bay in July as part of three-way blockbuster deal involving David Price, and the Mariners again have an open competition at shortstop.

Impact of Belisario's injury

Add Ronald Belisario to the list of players who admits to an unusual off-the-field injury. As ESPN.com’s Jayson Stark reported Saturday, Belsario will be sidelined with a fractured left shoulder which he suffered getting out of a swimming pool.

Rays president of baseball operations Matt Silverman, announced Saturday that Belisario would not be able to throw "for several weeks" because of the injury to his non-pitching shoulder, which occurred at his home in Venezuela before he reported to spring training.

This injury is on par with Clint Barmes, who broke his collarbone in 2005, who fell while lugging a package of deer meat he got from teammate Todd Helton and broke his collarbone.

Belisario, signed to a minor league deal, seemed to have a "decent shot" to win a spot in the bullpen as a ground-ball specialist, says Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. If Belisario falls behind the pack, that would make it easier for someone like Steven Geltz to be with the big league club on Opening Day.
