Lance Lynn was removed from his Grapefruit League start on Saturday after one inning due to precautionary reasons.
No word as to what the potential issue was, but they did not that he would have remained in the game had it been a regular season game. Before departing, Lynn worked a perfect inning with one strikeout.
Juan Lagares was forced to leave Saturday's Grapefruit League contest due to a left oblique strain.
Lagares was sidelined earlier in the spring due to back stiffness and now an oblique issue is likely to put his Opening Day in jeopardy. He was expected to serve as the club's fourth outfielder to start the season.
Lonnie Chisenhall said his right shoulder was still sore on Saturday and he's expected to be held out for the next few days.
Chisenhall was forced to leave Friday's game after sustaining the injury when he collided with the outfield wall while chasing down a ball. It doesn't sound like this should impact his status for Opening Day, but the regular season is fast approaching.
Rockies reassigned RHP Matt Carasiti, LHP Jerry Vasto and C Jan Vazquez to minor league camp.
No huge surprises among the group. Carasiti posted a 1.29 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 6/6 K/BB ratio in seven innings of Cactus League action. He should get a chance in the Rockies bullpen at some point during the 2017 campaign.
Marcus Semien was scratched from the Athletics' Cactus League starting lineup on Saturday due to illness.
Richie Martin will start in his place against the Reds. Expect Semien to return to game action in a day or two.
The MRI on the left biceps of Carlos Rodon came back clean on Friday, indicating no structural issues.
The young southpaw will receive a second opinion on Monday, but felt reassured by the results of the MRI. Rodon was scratched from his scheduled start on Friday due to tightness in his biceps. The club will exercise caution with him going forward and he's likely to begin the season on the disabled list, but it doesn't sound like he'll miss a substantial amount of time.
Andre Ethier (back) is expected to receive a prognosis from his doctors on Saturday.
The veteran outfielder continues to battle a multitude of ailments and can't seem to get healthy. At this point, it's hard to count on him for much heading into 2017 as even when he gets on the field he'll be facing stiff competition for at-bats in the outfield.
According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Rangers have also discussed a contract extension with Nomar Mazara.
They reportedly agreed to a six-year extension with Rougned Odor on Saturday and may not be finished with locking up their young stars. Unlike Odor though, there are no indications that a deal is close in this instance. Mazara hit .266/.320/.419 with 20 homers and 64 RBI in 145 games as a 21-year-old rookie in 2016.
