Charlie Tilson (foot) will have to wear a walking boot for three more weeks.
The hope had been that he was a week away from removing the boot and beginning weight-bearing exercises, but apparently his recovery has come along slower than expected. Tilson has had an awful time with injuries since landing in the White Sox' organization, tearing his hamstring in his first game last year and now dealing with a stress reaction in his foot all camp. He's out indefinitely.
Athletics optioned RHP Jesse Hahn to Triple-A Nashville.
Hahn had a shot to open the season in the rotation, but he posted an 8.80 ERA over 15 1/3 innings in the Cactus League. That wasn't going to cut it, especially after last year's 6.02 ERA with the big club. Hahn will try to get on track with Nashville.
Mariners optioned RHP Chris Heston to Triple-A Tacoma; re-assigned LHP Nick Hagadone and RHPs Cody Martin and Jean Machi to minor league camp.
Heston was acquired from the Giants over the winter as rotation depth, but he was never under serious consideration for an Opening Day roster spot. He'll start for Tacoma.
Trevor Plouffe said Sunday that his abductor muscle isn't bothering him anymore.
Plouffe was lifted from Saturday's game after tweaking the muscle, but it looks to be a very minor injury. He's slated to be the A's Opening Day third baseman.
Athletics released LHP Ross Detwiler.
Detwiler exercised the opt-out clause in his contract after being told he wasn't going to make the Opening Day roster. The lefty holds an 11.88 ERA this spring and a 6.73 ERA in the majors the last two seasons.
Homer Bailey (elbow) will play catch Monday.
It will be his first time throwing since he had surgery last month to remove bone spurs from his right elbow. The Reds are hoping Bailey is ready to rejoin their rotation by June.
Raisel Iglesias (elbow, hips) played catch Saturday and is expected to resume throwing off a mound soon.
Iglesias fell in the shower a few weeks ago and has dealt with a sore pitching elbow and hips since, but he's making nice progress. Reds manager Bryan Price indicated Sunday that the reliever has a shot to be ready for Opening Day. Iglesias is first in line for saves if healthy, although the Reds aren't planning to name a set closer.
Reds manager Bryan Price said Sunday that it's very unlikely Devin Mesoraco (hip, shoulder) will be ready for Opening Day.
That has been the expectation for a while now, as Mesoraco simply hasn't gotten enough work this spring with just 14 at-bats and zero full games under his belt. He would seem to have a chance to be ready sometime in April, although the Reds will ease him into action once he's on the active roster. Cincy is slated to open the year with Tucker Barnhart and Rule 5 pick Stuart Turner at catcher.
