Delino DeShields has made the Rangers' Opening Day roster.

DeShields has certainly earned it, as hes hitting .302 with a .448 on-base percentage to go along with 12 stolen bases. His exact role isn't clear, but Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram notes that he has "looked like an everyday player." DeShields has been a useful fantasy option before and there's opportunity in left field right now, so this situation is worth watching.

Indians signed INF/OF Jose Ramirez to a five-year, $26 million extension.

The agreement was reported late last week and it's now official. The extension includes two club options at $11 million (2022) and $13 million (2023), so the deal could max out at $50 million. Ramirez is coming off a breakout 2016 where he batted .312/.363/.462 with 11 homers, 76 RBI and 22 stolen bases over 152 games.

Royals reassigned C Brayan Pena to minor league camp.

Drew Butera will begin the year as Salvador Perez's backup. Pena figures to provide catching depth at the Triple-A level.
Mar 28 - 12:20 PM

Cubs released INF Munenori Kawasaki.

Kawasaki, 35, appeared in 14 games with the Cubs last season and batted .255/.352/.312 over 102 games in Triple-A. He's a clubhouse/fan favorite and the Cubs would surely like to work out a new deal, but he could find a more appealing opportunity elsewhere.

Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen said Steven Matz (elbow) looked "pretty decent" during another throwing session Tuesday.

Matz was scratched from his final scheduled Grapefruit League start due to irritation in his left elbow, but he was able to make 55 throws off flat ground on Monday and even threw a few pitches from the rubber on Tuesday. It's encouraging, but the expectation is that Matz will begin the year on the disabled list. Seth Lugo is the favorite to take his spot in the rotation, though Zack Wheeler hasn't been ruled out.
Mar 28 - 12:12 PM

Francisco Cervelli (foot) is back in Tuesday's Grapefruit League lineup.

Cervelli was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to fatigue and some continued soreness in his right foot, but his absence was considered precautionary. The Pirates expect him to be ready for Opening Day.
Mar 28 - 12:07 PM

Adrian Beltre (calf) is expected to throw and hit in the cages on Tuesday.

Beltre showed up Monday due to a tight right calf muscle and was held out of the lineup. He's still nursing some tightness, but the Rangers don't sound overly concerned. This hasn't been the smoothest spring for Beltre, as he dealt with a Grade 1 strain of his left calf early on in camp and has struggled at the plate between the World Baseball Classic and the Cactus League. Still, there's nothing to indicate he won't be ready for the regular season.
Mar 28 - 12:05 PM

Carlos Gomez (shoulder) expects to return to Cactus League action on Wednesday.

Gomez jammed his left shoulder a week ago, but he resumed swinging bat on Sunday and is feeling closer to normal. Barring any setbacks, he should be good to go for Opening Day.
