Michael Bourn (hamstring) will miss at least the next week and is questionable for Opening Day.
Blue Jays prospect Aaron Sanchez had another strong outing on Sunday, allowing five hits and a walk with three strikeouts in four scoreless innings against the Orioles.
The 21-year-old has had an eye-opening spring in major league camp, as he's yet to allow an earned run in seven innings spanning three appearances. That also doesn't include his outing on March 11 against the Canada junior national team, when the right-hander pitched four scoreless innings and struck out seven in relief. Sanchez is ticketed for Double-A to begin the season, but if he continues to make strides in his development, the Blue Jays may consider promoting him later in the summer.
Marlins prospect LHP Adam Conley was shelled for four earned runs on four hits and walk in one inning on Sunday against the Yankees.
Conley, 23, was having a solid spring in major league camp and yet to allow an earned run through his first four outings (four innings total). However, the left-hander's forgettable appearance on Sunday bumped his ERA to 7.20 on the spring. Conley spent the entire 2013 season at Double-A Jacksonville, where he posted a 3.25 ERA and 129-37 K/BB ratio in 138.2 innings spanning 25 starts. He'll likely begin the upcoming season at Triple-A and could be ready for an audition in the major leagues later in the year.
Padres pitching prospect Max Fried (forearm) will play catch on Monday.
Fried was shut down after dealing with forearm soreness last month, but the move was viewed as precautionary. The Padres will bring the young lefty along slowly, so expect him to miss the beginning of the minor league season.
Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg on Monday named Cliff Lee the club's Opening Day starter.
With Roy Halladay retired and Cole Hamels (shoulder) injured, there weren't any other real options. He'll be followed in the rotation by A.J. Burnett and Kyle Kendrick. Lee, 35, holds a pristine 2.80 ERA in his three seasons in Philadelphia.
Yankees prospect C Gary Sanchez connected for his second home run of the spring, a two-run shot, on Sunday against the Marlins.
Sanchez, 21, was technically optioned to Double-A Trenton on March 12, but since then he's remained major league camp and appeared in three games. He's had a successful spring overall, batting .364 (4-for-11) with two home runs while appearing in eight games. In 2013, the Yankees' top prospect batted .253/.324/.412 with 15 home runs and 71 RBI in 117 games between High-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton. However, with the off-season acquisition of catcher Brian McCann, Sanchez lacks a clear path to the major leagues and therefore could emerge as potential trade bait later this summer.
Jacoby Ellsbury (calf) is expected to miss a third straight game Tuesday.
Ellsbury was cleared to hit in the batting cage Monday, but the Yankees won't to hold him out of game action a little longer. All signs point to the outfielder's calf issue being minor.
Chris Stewart will visit Dr. James Andrews to have his right knee examined, with surgery seen as "probable."
It's not clear how long he'd be sidelined, but obviously even a minor operation would rule him out for Opening Day. That would clear room for Tony Sanchez to serve as Russell Martin's backup.
