Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals and John Lackey agreed in spring training to an incentives package that could push the pitcher's total earnings in 2015 past $2 million.

Strauss adds that "neither Lackey, the club, MLB nor the players union has announced the amendment," which is based around the number of appearances the right-hander makes. Lackey is making just $507,500 this season due to a contract stipulation he agreed to with the Red Sox which kicked in when he had to have Tommy John surgery. The Cards were under no obligation to sweeten his deal, but doing so modestly to keep the veteran more motivated is probably a wise move.

Scooter Gennett (hand) will resume swinging a bat on Sunday.

He'll be cleared for full activity when his stitches are removed later this week. Gennett is expected to be activated from the disabled list once his 15 days are up on May 5.
Apr 26 - 12:32 PM

J.J. Hardy (shoulder) will need at least 3-4 rehab games before being activated from the disabled list.

He'll rest until Wednesday after being given a cortisone injection in his ailing left shoulder Saturday, so that means Hardy won't be activated until next weekend in a best-case scenario. Everth Cabrera will continue to fill in at shortstop for the Orioles.

Athletics recalled RHP Ryan Cook from Triple-A Nashville.

Cook failed to crack the Opening Day roster following a poor Cactus League showing, but he bounced back with five scoreless appearances at Nashville. The A's will use him in middle relief.

Athletics optioned RHP Kendall Graveman to Triple-A Nashville.

There was some buzz surrounding Graveman following a great spring training, but he then went out and posted an 8.27 ERA and 2.02 WHIP over his first four starts. Jesse Chavez was terrific in a spot start last week and will presumably slide into Graveman's spot in the rotation, at least until Jarrod Parker (elbow) is ready.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Phillies haven't received any trade inquiries on Cole Hamels since late March.

It's not a surprise, as teams are aware that general manager Ruben Amaro isn't dropping his asking price for the left-hander. Hamels is off to a fine start this season with a 3.75 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP and 23 strikeouts over 24 innings. He remains a good bet to be dealt at some point prior to the trade deadline.

Greg Holland (pectoral) will play catch on Sunday.

It will be the first time he's thrown since being diagnosed with a Grade 1 right pectoral strain. Holland is eligible to be activated from the disabled list in a week, though it's possible he'll need a little more time than that. Wade Davis will continue to serve as the Royals' closer in the meantime.

Pedro Strop (foot) is available out of the Cubs' bullpen Sunday.

He had been nursing a minor foot ailment but is fine now. Strop has been excellent so far this month, tossing 7 1/3 scoreless innings with a 0.55 WHIP and 10/2 K/BB ratio.
