Royals are still mum on why pitcher Zack Greinke left camp over the weekend. He was excused from spring training in Surprise Arizona on Saturday to deal with undisclosed personal issues. Royals GM Allard Baird said it had nothing to do with disciplinary issues or injury.
Reliever Ricardo Rincon has finally reported to camp 11 days after pitchers and catchers reported to Cardinals’ camp in Jupiter Florida after battling visa problems in Mexico. Rincon threw to live pitching on Monday and is expected to stay for a few days before joining the Mexican team at the World Baseball Classic.
