Reds released OF Ryan Raburn.

Raburn showed decent power this spring, cranking three home runs in 32 at-bats in Cactus League play, but he was always a longshot to make the Reds' roster out of camp. The soon-to-be 36-year-old outfielder will try to latch on with another organization.

Adrian Beltre is out of the Rangers' Cactus League lineup on Monday due to a tight right calf muscle.

Beltre suffered a Grade 1 strain of his left calf early on in Rangers camp. This right calf injury is not considered as serious, but we are just one week from Opening Day. Look for another status update Tuesday.

Jorge Soler has been diagnosed with a strained oblique and will likely open the 2017 season on the disabled list.

His disabled list stint can be backdated to sometime in March so that he might only have to sit out one week of regular-season games. Soler, acquired this winter from the Cubs for closer Wade Davis, was batting just .143/.254/.286 through 59 plate appearances in this year's Cactus League. Terrance Gore now projects to make the Royals' roster out of camp.

Raul Mondesi has been named the Royals' starting second baseman.

Royals manager Ned Yost made that announcement Monday morning in camp. Mondesi batted just .185/.231/.281 over his first 149 plate appearances in 2016, though he did also steal nine bases. The 21-year-old carries some AL-only fantasy appeal in his new starting job. Whit Merrifield and Christian Colon will continue to battle for bench spots.
Mar 27 - 11:26 AM

Jarrod Dyson (hamstring) is expected to take 10 plate appearances in minor league games Monday.

But his running will be limited as he works his way back from a hamstring injury. Dyson's game relies heavily on his legs, so the Mariners have to be careful here. His status is very much up in the air with the regular season approaching.

Shae Simmons will have his forearm examined this week Dr. Ed Khalfayan.

Simmons has been bothered by right forearm discomfort since early March and can't seem to get over the hump. Greg Johns of MLB.com says the Mariners have again slowed his throwing program. Simmons is likely to be placed on the 10-day disabled list at the end of this week.
Mar 27 - 11:14 AM

Kevin Gausman has been named the Opening Day starter for the Orioles.

Gausman will take the mound April 3 at Camden Yards against the visiting Blue Jays. Dylan Bundy is scheduled follow him in the O's second regular-season game. Gausman, 26, boasts a 1.80 ERA, 0.80 WHIP, and 13/2 K/BB ratio in 10 innings (three starts) this spring in the Grapefruit League and brings considerable fantasy upside into 2017.
Mar 27 - 10:58 AM

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said he's planning to meet with pitching coach Mike Maddux and GM Mike Rizzo on Monday night to discuss the closer situation.

Koda Glover has looked like the frontrunner for the past couple of weeks, but he got lit up in his last Grapefruit League appearance Friday against the Cardinals, watching his spring ERA jump from 1.13 to 3.72. Shawn Kelley makes for a pretty good fallback option for the Nats as a guy coming off a 2.64 ERA and 80/11 K/BB ratio over 58 innings in 2016, though he still carries some durability concerns. There should be more clarity by the middle of this week.
