Cardinals placed RHP Trevor Rosenthal on the 10-day disabled list with a right lat strain.
This is not a new injury for Rosenthal, but he hadn't been bothered by it for the last few weeks. Apparently there has been a setback. Sam Tuivailala has been recalled from the Triple-A roster and will open the 2017 season in the Cardinals' bullpen.
Trevor Cahill will start the Padres' third regular-season game.
Luis Perdomo will start the fifth game and Jarred Cosart will open the season in the bullpen. Cahill posted a 3.26 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 21 strikeouts over 19 1/3 innings this spring in Cactus League play and might carry some value in deeper mixed leagues. At the very least, he should have streaming appeal.
Lucas Duda was held out of action Thursday in Mets camp because of hamstring tightness.
Mets manager Terry Collins said the injury will have no effect on Duda's availability for Opening Day. The 31-year-old is set to start at first base.
Shawn Kelley will open the year as a setup man.
Kelley earned seven saves last season before the Nationals acquired Mark Melancon and he carried some momentum for the closer job into spring training this year, but the right-hander still has some durability concerns as a guy who's needed two Tommy John surgeries.
Koda Glover will open the 2017 season in a setup role.
Glover looked to be the favorite for the Nationals' closer job a couple weeks ago, but manager Dusty Baker named Blake Treinen to the post on Thursday afternoon. Glover is a promising young reliever but seems doubtful to carry value in non-holds leagues. Shawn Kelley will also open the year in a setup role.
Padres purchased the contract of RHP Craig Stammen from Triple-A El Paso.
Stammen earned a spot in the Padres' bullpen by posting a 0.77 ERA and 12 strikeouts over 11 2/3 innings in Cactus League play. He'll probably act as a long reliever for the Friars.
Padres placed LHP Robbie Erlin on the 60-day disabled list with a left elbow injury.
Erlin underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last May. He should become an option for the Padres around the middle of the 2017 regular season.
Orioles sent RHP Oliver Drake outright to Triple-A Norfolk.
Drake failed to crack the Baltimore bullpen this spring and he was out of minor league options, so the Orioles first had to pass him through waivers. The right-hander will go on serving as organizational relief depth for the O's.
