MLB.com's Todd Zolecki reports that Sean O'Sullivan "is the in-house favorite" to be the Phillies' No. 5 starter.

O'Sullivan was sent to minor league camp a couple weeks ago but is now back with the big leaguers, allowing four runs over four innings in a start versus the Blue Jays Tuesday. Many figure the Phils will find someone outside the organization, although general manager Ruben Amaro was being coy Tuesday, saying he didn't have interest in any of the recently released pitchers. O'Sullivan has a career 5.91 ERA over 231 1/3 frames in the majors and would be a candidate for worst starter in the big leagues should he make the rotation.

Blue Jays optioned C Josh Thole to Triple-A Buffalo; re-assigned LHP Jeff Francis and INF Munenori Kawasaki to minor league camp.

That means Russell Martin will catch knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. Thole could eventually get a shot as Martin's backup if the Jays ever trade Dioner Navarro.

The Blue Jays have named Drew Hutchison their Opening Day starter.

R.A. Dickey and Mark Buehrle have a big experience edge on Hutchison, but the young right-hander is the easy choice here. Hutchison posted a 4.48 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a 184/60 K/BB ratio for the Jays last season and could take another step forward in 2015.

Coco Crisp (elbow) is likely to begin the season on the disabled list after feeling soreness in his right elbow while batting in a minor league game Tuesday.

Crisp had experienced improvement after being given a cortisone injection a week ago, but he hit another bump in the road Tuesday. He hasn't played in a Cactus League game since March 23, so the A's can backdate a disabled list stint. There's no guarantee he'll be ready to go when his 15 days are up, however. Oakland is now expected to be without both of their corner outfielders on Opening Day, as Josh Reddick is sidelined with a strained oblique.

Chris Denorfia (hamstring) has yet to be cleared to return to game action.

Denorfia took batting practice on Tuesday but hasn't given the go-ahead to play in games yet. He hasn't played since March 17 due to a sore left hamstring and is looking unlikely to be ready for Opening Day. "Opening Day is still in jeopardy," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. "You have to figure that out when you fill out the roster, too."

Josh Hamilton (shoulder) has been hitting off a tee.

He has not, however, been cleared for any other baseball activity as he works his way back from surgery in early February to repair the AC joint in his right shoulder. Hamilton, of course, is also facing a suspension after suffering a relapse over the offseason.
Mar 31 - 7:39 PM

Jesse Crain (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing off a mound.

Crain felt soreness in his shoulder following a minor league appearance on March 18 and has been limited to playing catch since then. He'll stay back in extended spring training and it's unclear how long he'll be out. "But I'm moving forward again," said Crain. "Obviously, when you first come in, you feel like there's a chance, as I was doing so well. ... I don't want to rush it, and [I want to] make sure I'm there and there for good when it happens."

Giants designated OF Gary Brown for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Justin Maxwell. Brown is a former top prospect who has shown some pop and plenty of speed in the minors, but he had been slated to return to Triple-A for a third straight season after being optioned over the weekend. Still just 26, it's possible he'll draw some interest on waivers.
