According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, Carlos Rendon (knee) is expected to miss about three weeks.

The best news here is that Rendon will not require surgery on his sprained left MCL. With rest and rehab, Heyman writes, Rendon should miss three weeks (give or take). The infielder injured his knee on March 9. Nationals GM Mike Rizzo said, "There's nothing seriously wrong, and it should remedy itself. Some turn the corner quickly and with other guys it takes a few weeks. But [Rendon] will be fine."

Astros prospect Kyle Smith underwent Tommy John surgery recently, according to the Houston Chronicle's Jose de Jesus Ortiz.

Smith, 22, had a 3.96 ERA and a 127/37 K/BB ratio in 122 2/3 innings last year between high-A Lancaster and Double-A Corpus Christi. The Astros got him from the Royals in 2013 in a trade for Justin Maxwell.

Braves claimed LHP Andrew McKirahan off waivers from the Marlins.

McKirahan was a Rule 5 pick. The Braves were among a number of teams reportedly interested in the lefty. The 25-year-old posted a 3.00 ERA in nine innings prior to being placed on waivers by the Marlins. He's not the sexiest name, but could offer relatively immediate help in the bullpen.

Eddie Butler (shoulder) took part in long toss drills on Wednesday.

Butler left Monday's Cactus League start after feeling fatigue in his right shoulder. It's a good sign that he's already starting to throw again. Butler has a history of shoulder problems. There's no timetable as to when he'll take the mound again. He was in the hunt for a rotation spot, but an arm injury at this point might take him out of the running.

Cubs optioned OF Junior Lake to Triple-A Iowa.

Lake hit just .211/.246/.351 in 326 plate appearances for the Cubs last season. He'll serve as organizational depth.
Apr 1 - 1:57 PM

Cubs optioned LHP Zach Rosscup to Triple-A Iowa.

Rosscup struck out 12 in nine spring innings. He was shelled during several cups of coffee for the Cubs last season, but has put up nice minor league numbers. The 27-year-old will continue to refine his game in the minors.
Apr 1 - 1:54 PM

Cubs optioned RHP Brian Schlitter to Triple-A Iowa.

Schlitter's been smacked around in spring training, to the tune of nine runs in eight innings. He pitched respectably for the Cubs in 2014 when he posted an ERA of 3.61 with a 1.367 WHIP. He'll serve as organizational depth for the time being.
Apr 1 - 1:51 PM

Chris Denorfia (hamstring) ran the bases on Wednesday.

The outfielder suffered the injury on March 17. Denorfia has yet to be cleared for game action, but he's starting to ramp up his activity in an attempt to test a sore left hamstring. He took batting practice on Tuesday and was seen running on Wednesday. It's still unlikely he'll be ready for Opening Day.
