Jake Petricka will undergo an X-ray after being hit on the right hand by a comebacker.

Petricka said that everything "seems OK," but we'll have to wait and find out what the exam says. He'll be a middle reliever for the Pale Hose this season.

X-rays on Tyler Saladino's left wrist came back negative.

Saladino was hit on the wrist by a pitch in a minor league game Monday. He's probably sore but should be fine. Saladino is slated to be the White Sox' Opening Day second baseman.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Cardinals and Yadier Molina are "making progress" in extension talks and "may be getting closer to a deal."

There's been no word on the potential terms of the contract, although Heyman says Molina has reportedly been looking for a four-year extension, while St. Louis had been offering two years. He's currently set to make $14 million in 2017 before hitting free agency once a mutual option is declined. Molina turns 35 in July and the Cards have top catching prospect Carson Kelly almost ready, so it's possible he won't be an everyday player by the end of the deal. However, he remains one of the best defensive catchers in baseball and is coming off a season when he batted .307/.360/.427.

Jarrod Dyson (hamstring) is hoping to return to Cactus League action on Wednesday.

Dyson has dealt with a right hamstring issue for over a week, although the Mariners have insisted that it's merely fatigue and not any kind of strain. The speedster said he had six hits -- including a home run -- in 10 at-bats in a minor league game Monday. There's been no indication that Dyson is in danger of missing Opening Day.
Mar 27 - 6:21 PM

Orioles released INF Chris Johnson.

Johnson smacked three homers with a .802 OPS this spring, but it wasn't enough to crack the Opening Day roster. The 32-year-old is a .252/.288/.348 hitter in the majors since 2014.
Mar 27 - 6:12 PM

Orioles released OF Michael Bourn.

Bourn fractured his right ring finger before Grapefruit League contests got underway and won't be game-ready until sometime in April, at least. He requested his release and is now free to sign elsewhere on what's sure to be a minor league contract. Bourn is nothing more than a bit player at this point in his career.

Sandy Leon hit two homers, the latter a grand slam, to lead the Red Sox to an 11-9 win over the Orioles on Monday.

Both Leon homers came in a nine-run fifth inning. He had been 6-for-26 with no extra-base hits this spring going into this one. One of 2016's biggest surprises, Leon seems likely to disappoint offensively this year, though he'll remain a quality defensive catcher for Boston.
Mar 27 - 5:33 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez gave up six runs -- four earned -- and nine hits in six innings Monday against the Orioles.

Rodriguez surrendered five extra-base hits in this one. He's looked quite strong for the most part this spring, but consistency remains a question mark here. He is all set for the rotation, at least until David Price comes back.
