Juan Lagares (oblique) ran Wednesday and expects to do some hitting on Thursday.
Lagares went down with an oblique injury over the weekend, but he's optimistic that he'll be able to avoid the disabled list. "I think I'll be good to go," Lagares told Anthony DiComo of MLB.com. The next couple of days will be critical.
Drew Smyly won't make his scheduled appearance on Friday due to an unspecified arm issue.
That's not what you want to hear with the season rapidly approaching. Mariners manager Scott Servais is waiting for more information on the situation, but there's apparently at least some concern. There should be more clarity on the situation soon.
Adrian Beltre (calf) is not in Wednesday's lineup.
Beltre hasn't played since Sunday due to a tight right calf muscle, but he's not concerned about his readiness for Opening Day and Jeff Banister has also downplayed the situation. We'll have to take their word for it for now.
Pirates optioned RHP Drew Hutchison to Triple-A Indianapolis.
Hutchison was in the mix for the fifth spot in the rotation this spring, but he was blasted for nine runs over 3 2/3 innings in his final spring start Tuesday against the Red Sox. The Pirates will choose either Tyler Glasnow or Trevor Williams for the fifth spot.
Carlos Gomez (shoulder) has returned to the Rangers' lineup on Wednesday.
Gomez jammed his left shoulder on a slide into third base last Tuesday, but he's feeling better now. The 31-year-old outfielder finished strong last season and will serve as the Rangers' regular center fielder in 2017.
Tigers reassigned INFs Omar Infante, Brendan Ryan, and Efren Navarro, OF Alex Presley, C Miguel Gonzalez, and RHP Angel Nesbitt to minor league camp.
It comes after Infante hit .351 (13-for-37) during Grapefruit League action. There's a good chance he'll use his opt-out and look for an opportunity on the free agent market rather than report to Triple-A Toledo.
Jarrod Dyson (hamstring) has returned to the Mariners' lineup Wednesday.
Dyson rested his hamstring for a week, but he saw a bunch of at-bats in a minor league game on Monday and feels ready to go. The speedster should be fine for the season.
Tigers optioned LHP Blaine Hardy to Triple-A Toledo.
Hardy had a pretty good spring with a 3.97 ERA and 14/2 K/BB ratio over 11 1/3 innings, but it wasn't enough to win a spot on the Opening Day roster. The 30-year-old appeared in 21 games with the Tigers last season and should get another shot at some point this year.
