Padres reassigned INF/OF Jake Goebbert, INF Brett Wallace and C/1B Cody Decker to minor league camp.
All three were longshots to crack the Opening Day roster in reserve roles. Goebbert should get a chance with the Padres at some point during the upcoming season.
Zack Greinke is scheduled to pitch in a minor league game on Wednesday.
He made it through Friday's Cactus League game without any issue, despite his command being worse than he would like. He owns an 11/6 K/BB ratio over 12 2/3 innings on the spring and looks to be ready to go for Opening Day.
Cubs optioned RHP Eric Jokisch to Triple-A Iowa.
The 25-year-old could have competed for a spot in the Opening Day bullpen, but posted a 6.00 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 7/2 K/BB ratio in 12 spring innings. He'll provide organizational depth at Triple-A.
Padres manager Bud Black officially named James Shields as the team's Opening Day starter.
The move doesn't come as a major surprise, as the 33-year-old hurler was signed this winter to be the ace of the Padres staff. His fantasy value continues to rise as he's pitching in the friendly confines of Petco Park.
J.J. Hardy is scheduled to undergo an MRA exam on his injured left shoulder on Monday.
Hardy has been receiving treatment in recent days, but the Orioles want to ensure that there is no structural damage. He's expected to be held out of action until Tuesday.
Brandon League is expected to be sidelined for the next two months and is attempting to avoid surgery on his ailing shoulder.
League expects to begin the season on the 60-day disabled list, and may be out considerably longer. He can safely be written off in all but the deepest of NL-only formats.
Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Saturday that Coco Crisp (elbow) is expected to return to game action on Tuesday.
Barring any further setbacks, Melvin believes that the oft-injured outfielder will be ready to go on Opening Day. He always carries substantial injury risk, but hitting atop the A's lineup his combination of power and speed should provide ample fantasy value.
Angels optioned RHP Cam Bedrosian to Triple-A Salt Lake.
The 23-year-old had a chance to secure a spot in the Opening Day bullpen, but posted a 5.06 ERA and 1.88 WHIP in 5 1/3 Cactus League innings. He should get an opportunity with the Angels at some point during the upcoming season.
