Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated Wednesday that the club is still thinking about having Aaron Judge start the season in the minors.

"He needs to play, that's the bottom line," Girardi told Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. For his part, Judge has swung the bat really well this spring, hitting .327/.393/.564 with three homers and a 12/6 K/BB ratio in 22 games. Aaron Hicks has also played well, but it's probably time to see what Judge can do.

Aaron Sanchez could throw a side session this weekend rather than pitch in a minor league game.

Sanchez popped a blister in his pitching hand during Monday's Grapefruit League start, but it's not a major concern at this time. He's still lined up to take his first turn in the rotation.

Juan Lagares (oblique) ran Wednesday and expects to do some hitting on Thursday.

Lagares went down with an oblique injury over the weekend, but he's optimistic that he'll be able to avoid the disabled list. "I think I'll be good to go," Lagares told Anthony DiComo of MLB.com. The next couple of days will be critical.

Drew Smyly won't make his scheduled appearance on Friday due to an unspecified arm issue.

That's not what you want to hear with the season rapidly approaching. Mariners manager Scott Servais is waiting for more information on the situation, but he noted that Smyly "didn't feel great" and had a "soggy arm" coming out of his most recent bullpen session. It's worth noting that he missed a large chunk of the 2015 season due to a labrum tear. There should be more clarity on the situation soon.

Adrian Beltre (calf) is not in Wednesday's lineup.

Beltre hasn't played since Sunday due to a tight right calf muscle, but he's not concerned about his readiness for Opening Day and Jeff Banister has also downplayed the situation. We'll have to take their word for it for now.

Pirates optioned RHP Drew Hutchison to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Hutchison was in the mix for the fifth spot in the rotation this spring, but he was blasted for nine runs over 3 2/3 innings in his final spring start Tuesday against the Red Sox. The Pirates will choose either Tyler Glasnow or Trevor Williams for the fifth spot.
Mar 29 - 11:13 AM

Carlos Gomez (shoulder) has returned to the Rangers' lineup on Wednesday.

Gomez jammed his left shoulder on a slide into third base last Tuesday, but he's feeling better now. The 31-year-old outfielder finished strong last season and will serve as the Rangers' regular center fielder in 2017.

Tigers reassigned INFs Omar Infante, Brendan Ryan, and Efren Navarro, OF Alex Presley, C Miguel Gonzalez, and RHP Angel Nesbitt to minor league camp.

It comes after Infante hit .351 (13-for-37) during Grapefruit League action. There's a good chance he'll use his opt-out and look for an opportunity on the free agent market rather than report to Triple-A Toledo.
