  • Dyson (hamstring) back in M's lineup Wed.
    Jarrod Dyson (hamstring) has returned to the Mariners' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Dyson rested his hamstring for a week, but he saw a bunch of at-bats in a minor league game on Monday and feels ready to go. The speedster should be fine for the season. 32 minutes ago
  • Tigers option LHP Hardy to Triple-A
    Tigers optioned LHP Blaine Hardy to Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Hardy had a pretty good spring with a 3.97 ERA and 14/2 K/BB ratio over 11 1/3 innings, but it wasn't enough to win a spot on the Opening Day roster. The 30-year-old appeared in 21 games with the Tigers last season and should get another shot at some point this year. 34 minutes ago
  • Blue Jays option OF Ceciliani to Triple-A
    Blue Jays optioned OF Darrell Ceciliani to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Ceciliani appeared in 13 games with the Blue Jays last season and hit .266/.323/.441 with 10 homers and 11 stolen bases over 82 games in Triple-A. The 26-year-old will be ready in case there's an injury in the major league outfield. 40 minutes ago
  • Orioles re-sign Johnson to minors deal
    Orioles re-signed INF Chris Johnson to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Johnson was just released earlier this week, but the expectation was that the Orioles would try to bring him back. The 32-year-old will provide some veteran insurance at Triple-A. It's worth noting that his father, Ron Johnson, is the Norfolk manager. 58 minutes ago

  • Rays option RHP Garton to Triple-A
    Rays optioned RHP Ryan Garton to Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Garton appeared in 37 games with the Rays last season while putting up a 4.35 ERA and 33/11 K/BB ratio over 39 1/3 innings. The 27-year-old should make it back to the majors before long. Today, 7:19 am
  • Rays option C Casali to Triple-A
    Rays optioned C Curt Casali to Triple-A Durham; reassigned LHP Justin Marks, RHP Diego Moreno, C Michael McKenry, and OF Shane Peterson to minor league camp.

    Advice: This means that Jesus Sucre will make the Opening Day roster as a backup to the recently-signed Derek Norris. Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times recently speculated that the Rays could try to trade Casali, but he currently projects to serve as catching depth at Triple-A. Today, 7:11 am
  • Price (elbow) to do throwing Wednesday
    David Price (elbow) will make about 30 throws from 75 to 90 feet on Wednesday.

    Advice: While it's unclear when Price will be able to get back on a mound, he's continuing to make progress with his ailing elbow. As of now, the expectation is that the southpaw will miss at least the first month of the season, but it's hard to truly say how long his absence will be until he starts throwing with more intensity and tests himself in game action. Today, 7:03 am
  • Rutledge (hamstring) to begin season on DL
    Josh Rutledge (hamstring) is expected to begin the season on the disabled list.

    Advice: Rutledge went down Tuesday with a left hamstring strain and Red Sox manager John Farrell acknowledged that he will "need some time." Marco Hernandez and Steve Selsky are the candidates to take his spot on the Opening Day roster. Today, 6:58 am
  • Moreland sidelined with the flu
    Mitch Moreland was scratched Wednesday because he's dealing with the flu.

    Advice: Moreland won't travel with the team to Washington, D.C. and will head straight to Boston instead. He should have enough time to be ready to go for the season, but the Red Sox are hurting for depth at first base at the moment. Today, 6:56 am
  • Lagares (oblique) to do some running
    Juan Lagares (oblique) will try to do some running on Wednesday.

    Advice: Lagares exited Saturday's game with a left oblique strain, but he said Tuesday that he was encouraged by the MRI results. He still thinks he could be ready for Opening Day, but players often state a more optimistic view of these sort of things than the team and their training staff. There should be more clarity soon. Today, 6:24 am
  • Harvey to start third game of season
    Matt Harvey will start the Mets' third game of the regular season.

    Advice: Noah Syndergaard will start Opening Day against the Braves while Jacob deGrom will get the ball for the second game. Harvey has started to look a lot more like himself over his last couple of spring outings, so he's carrying some momentum going into the season. He's making his way back from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. The Mets haven't announced their rotation plans beyond the first three games. Today, 6:17 am
  • Moreland scratched from lineup Wednesday
    Mitch Moreland was scratched from Wednesday's Grapefruit League lineup.

    Advice: No word on the reason for the change. The Red Sox should provide an update soon. Today, 6:14 am
  • Nats make series of cuts in camp
    Nationals optioned RHP Trevor Gott to Triple-A Syracuse; reassigned RHP Jacob Turner, LHP Neal Cotts, and C Jhonatan Solano to minor league camp.

    Advice: Gott made nine appearances for the Nationals last season and spent the majority of the year in Triple-A while posting a 4.35 ERA and 31/13 K/BB ratio over 39 1/3 innings. He figures to get another try in the major league bullpen at some point this year. Today, 6:11 am
  • Rays option Maile to Triple-A
    Rays optioned C Luke Maile to Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: The recent signing of Derek Norris cut into his chances of making the team. Maile, 26, batted .227/.252/.361 over 126 plate appearances in the majors last season. Today, 6:04 am
  • Familia suspension to be announced Wednesday
    According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the announcement of Jeurys Familia's domestic violence suspension is expected on Wednesday.

    Advice: The timing makes sense, as Familia reportedly traveled to New York earlier this week to meet with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred. While nothing is official yet, Billy Witz of the New York Times reported Monday that the suspension is "almost certain" to be lighter than the 30-game suspension Aroldis Chapman received one year ago. The Mets are expecting Addison Reed to fill in at closer while Familia serves his suspension. Today, 5:53 am
  • Smith (elbow) felt tightness after bullpen
    Carson Smith (elbow) felt some tightness after his bullpen session last week.

    Advice: Despite the tightness, Smith said it's still possible he could throw another bullpen session next week. He's still hoping to make his return from Tommy John surgery in June, though he obviously has a bunch of hurdles to cross. Today, 5:35 am
  • Josh Rutledge has hamstring strain
    Josh Rutledge has been diagnosed with a left hamstring strain.

    Advice: Rutledge tweaked the hammy while going first to third on the bases Tuesday. He had been slated to make the Opening Day roster and likely see some starts against lefties, but a disabled list stint is probably now in order. It could open up a roster spot for Marco Hernandez. Yesterday, 4:13 pm
  • Josh Rutledge pulled from game with injury
    Josh Rutledge was lifted from Tuesday's game against the Pirates with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Rutledge looked like he tweaked something while running from first to third. The Red Sox should have an update on his status shortly. Marco Hernandez could make the roster as a bench player if Rutledge has to miss time. Yesterday, 3:26 pm
  • Lagares optimistic about MRI
    Juan Lagares (oblique) said Tuesday that an MRI showed only inflammation.

    Advice: The Mets have yet to announce anything, but it sounds like the injury could have been much worse. Still, the calendar is working against him at this point, so a DL stint remains the most likely scenario. Yesterday, 8:42 am
  • Lagares (oblique) waiting on MRI results
    Juan Lagares (oblique) said Tuesday morning that he's still waiting on the results of his MRI.

    Advice: Lagares left Saturday's Grapefruit League game with a left oblique strain and was sent for an MRI on Monday. It would be a surprise if he didn't start the season on the disabled list. Yesterday, 6:14 am
  • Familia back in Mets' camp Tuesday
    Jeurys Familia is back in Mets' camp on Tuesday.

    Advice: Familia reportedly traveled to New York on Monday to meet with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred regarding his domestic violence case. The expectation is that he will face a suspension, but Billy Witz of the New York Times reported Monday that it is "almost certain" to be fewer than the 30 games Aroldis Chapman received. An announcement is considered imminent. No matter the length of the suspension, Addison Reed is expected to fill in as closer for New York. Yesterday, 5:54 am
  • Report: Familia susp. likely less than 30 gms
    Billy Witz of the New York Times reports that Jeurys Familia's domestic violence suspension is "almost certain" to be less than the 30 games Aroldis Chapman received.

    Advice: Familia was arrested in November on a domestic abuse charge in New Jersey after police responded to a call and found Familia's wife, Bianca Rivas, with a scratch on her chest and a bruise on her right cheek. The charge was eventually dismissed. Most assumptions have been that Familia's suspension would likely fall right in line with Chapman's, but Witz writes that Rivas and Familia have cooperated with police and baseball investigators and Rivas has denied that her injuries came from an altercation with Familia. Familia met with Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred on Monday and a suspension is expected to be handed down this week. Addison Reed will handle closing duties for the Mets while Familia is away. Monday, 6:12 pm
  • Dyson (hamstring) hopes for Cactus game Wed.
    Jarrod Dyson (hamstring) is hoping to return to Cactus League action on Wednesday.

    Advice: Dyson has dealt with a right hamstring issue for over a week, although the Mariners have insisted that it's merely fatigue and not any kind of strain. The speedster said he had six hits -- including a home run -- in 10 at-bats in a minor league game Monday. There's been no indication that Dyson is in danger of missing Opening Day. Monday, 3:21 pm
  • Chris Johnson released by Orioles
    Orioles released INF Chris Johnson.

    Advice: Johnson smacked three homers with a .802 OPS this spring, but it wasn't enough to crack the Opening Day roster. The 32-year-old is a .252/.288/.348 hitter in the majors since 2014. Monday, 3:12 pm

  • Familia to meet with Rob Manfred on Monday
    Jeurys Familia is expected to meet with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred on Monday regarding his offseason domestic violence incident.

    Advice: Familia left Mets camp on Sunday night and flew to New York for the meeting. Manfred is almost certain to levy some sort of suspension on the 27-year-old closer, who was accused (but ultimately not charged) of assaulting his wife on October 31 in New Jersey. Addison Reed is in position to open the 2017 regular season as the Mets' primary ninth-inning man. Monday, 8:47 am
  • Dyson (hamstring) to play in minors games
    Jarrod Dyson (hamstring) is expected to take 10 plate appearances in minor league games Monday.

    Advice: But his running will be limited as he works his way back from a hamstring injury. Dyson's game relies heavily on his legs, so the Mariners have to be careful here. His status is very much up in the air with the regular season approaching. Monday, 8:18 am
  • Matt Harvey goes six strong against Braves
    Matt Harvey impressed over six innings Sunday, allowing two runs versus the Braves.

    Advice: Reports had Harvey in the mid-90s, topping out at 97 mph, in this one, though his velocity did fade later in the outing. It's still a good sign, as the Mets were hoping to see some 96s and 97s from him leading into the regular season. Sunday, 1:41 pm
  • Rays could look to trade Curt Casali
    Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times thinks the Rays will attempt to trade Curt Casali.

    Advice: They could also consider dealing Luke Maile following the signing of Derek Norris, but it appears Casali is more likely to be dealt. Jesus Sucre is expected to open the season along with Norris as the team's two catchers until Wilson Ramos (knee) is ready. Casali has hit 18 homers over 369 plate appearances over the last two seasons but has batted just .202/.282/.416 overall. Sunday, 12:33 pm
  • David Price (elbow) likely out until May
    ESPN Red Sox reporter Scott Lauber confirms David Price (elbow) will likely be out until May.

    Advice: It's the clearest timeline we've gotten on Price, who remains out indefinitely after hurting his elbow early on in camp. Price finally resumed throwing on Saturday, getting in a light game of catch. The Red Sox rotation will feature Rick Porcello, Chris Sale, Steven Wright, Eduardo Rodriguez and Drew Pomeranz to begin the year. Saturday, 1:44 pm
  • Juan Lagares leaves game with oblique strain
    Juan Lagares was forced to leave Saturday's Grapefruit League contest due to a left oblique strain.

    Advice: Lagares was sidelined earlier in the spring due to back stiffness and now an oblique issue is likely to put his Opening Day in jeopardy. He'll undergo an MRI on Monday. Lagares was expected to serve as the club's fourth outfielder to start the season. Saturday, 11:05 am
  • David Price (elbow) plays catch on Saturday
    David Price (elbow) has shown improved strength and resumed throwing on Saturday with a short game of catch.

    Advice: It's a small step, but one in the right-direction nonetheless. There remains no clear timetable for Price's return to the Red Sox but he'll certainly begin the season on the disabled list. Saturday, 6:54 am
  • Jarrod Dyson (hamstring) remains sidelined
    Jarrod Dyson remains out of game action due to a sore hamstring.

    Advice: He's been dealing with fatigue in his legs for a week now, although the Mariners think he'll be ready to play by Sunday. It doesn't sound like a big deal but is obviously worth tracking given how much of Dyson's value is derived from his legs. For what it's worth, the speedster is 5-for-5 on stolen base attempts this spring. Friday, 11:02 am
  • Smith's (elbow) bullpen 'surprisingly good'
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said Friday that Carson Smith's (elbow) first full bullpen session earlier this week was "surprisingly good."

    Advice: Smith has been throwing off a mound for a few weeks but earlier this week he threw his full arsenal of pitches at 100 percent effort. The Red Sox are hoping to add him to their bullpen in June after he completes his rehab from Tommy John surgery. Friday, 8:49 am
  • Chris Johnson hits two-run homer off Archer
    Chris Johnson went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's Grapefruit League showdown with the Rays.

    Advice: Johnson bopped a two-run home run off Chris Archer with one out in the fourth inning for his lone hit on the evening. The tater was his second of the spring. The Orioles signed him to a minor league contract in mid-February. He spent the 2016 season with the Marlins, when he saw 243 at-bats. In that space, the 32-year-old first baseman slashed a meager .222/.281/.329 with five homers and 24 RBI. There is no fantasy intrigue here. Wednesday, 5:52 pm

  • Jeurys Familia gives up three runs
    Jeurys Familia blew his second spring save after allowing three runs -- one earned -- in two-thirds of an inning Wednesday against the Marlins.

    Advice: It was a fifth-inning blown save, but a blown save nonetheless. MLB still figures to announce a suspension for Familia sometime prior to Opening Day. It's obvious that they always intended to delay that announcement until after the WBC was complete. Wednesday, 2:09 pm
  • David Price (elbow) not cleared to throw yet
    David Price still needs to regain strength in his injured left elbow before resuming a full throwing program.

    Advice: However, it's possible he could be cleared within the next few days. Price has been limited to this point to some light flat-ground throwing, range of motion and plyometric exercises. The Red Sox don't have a timetable for the left-hander's return, and manager John Farrell cautioned that the club will be very careful. "You don’t attach yourself to a calendar," Farrell said. Tuesday, 2:04 pm
  • Matt Harvey gives up three runs in loss
    Matt Harvey gave up three runs in 4 1/3 innings Monday against the Tigers, dropping him to 0-4 this spring.

    Advice: Harvey's velocity was improved today, as he touched the mid-90s on occasion. The results weren't there, but health and arm strength are all that really matter right now. He says the former isn't an issue, and the latter seems to be coming along. Monday, 2:09 pm
  • Price (elbow) visiting orthopedist Tuesday
    David Price (elbow) will visit the Red Sox team orthopedist on Tuesday to test his strength and determine the next step in his rehab.

    Advice: The exam had initially been scheduled for Monday. Price could be cleared to increase the intensity of his throwing workouts if all goes well during the visit. The left-hander will begin the season on the disabled list, but it might not be an extended absence. Monday, 1:50 pm
  • David Price (elbow) has checkup on Monday
    David Price (elbow) has a checkup with a team doctor on Monday.

    Advice: If his left elbow looks good, Price could be cleared to increase the intensity level of his throwing workouts. Then the Red Sox can begin mapping out a timetable for his 2017 debut. Price will open the regular season on the 15-day disabled list, but the hope is this won't be too long of an absence. Mar 20, 8:04 am
  • Jarrod Dyson dealing with leg fatigue
    Jarrod Dyson did not play over the weekend, and is likely to miss a few more days, due to leg fatigue.

    Advice: It doesn't sound like something serious enough to require Dyson to miss the start of the regular season, but it's something worth monitoring. The speedy outfielder is hitting .343/.415/.486 with three RBI and is 5-for-5 in stolen base attempts in Cactus League action. Mar 19, 7:27 pm
  • Mitch Moreland goes 3-for-3
    Mitch Moreland finished 3-for-3 on Sunday, raising his spring average to .375.

    Advice: The Red Sox are excited about what first base prospect Sam Travis has shown them this spring, but there's no controversy about who will start on Opening Day. It was almost certainly Moreland's job regardless, and he's had a great spring, hitting .333 with four extra-base hits and 12 RBI in 32 at-bats. Mar 19, 2:08 pm
