In other news from around the league:

• Cafardo also reports that two new teams have become involved in the bidding for free-agent right-hander Bronson Arroyo and that Arroyo is getting closer to the three-year offer he wants.
• Former All-Star infielder Chone Figgins, who didn't play last season after the Marlins released him in March, is attempting a comeback. According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, Figgins will work out for teams this week in Tampa. Figgins, who turns 36 later this month, hit only .185 in 147 games for the Mariners from 2011-12.
