Alejandro De Aza is expected to opt out of his contract with the Athletics.

De Aza signed a non-guaranteed minor league deal in January that would have paid him a $1.75 million salary if he were to crack the A's major league roster, but it looks like Mark Canha and Jaff Decker will be the backup outfielders in Oakland. There should be something more official by Monday afternoon.

Red Sox optioned INF Deven Marrero to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Marrero entered camp with only an outside shot at claiming an Opening Day roster spot. The former top prospect holds a weak .200/.257/.246 career batting line in 70 plate appearances at the major league level.

Red Sox optioned C Blake Swihart to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Christian Vazquez will back up Sandy Leon in Boston, at least to open the season. Swihart, 24, is a .271/.328/.386 career hitter at the major league level.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers have recently scouted Wily Peralta and may have interest in acquiring the right-hander.

The Rangers are in the market for upgrades to their starting rotation, preferably one that would be under team control for several seasons, and Peralta fits the bill. The 27-year-old right-hander finished the 2016 season strong and has pitched well in Cactus League play this spring. He's in line to earn $4.28 million in 2017 and is under team control through the 2021 season.

Greg Holland is scheduled to pitch in back-to-back Cactus League games for the first time on Monday and Tuesday.

The veteran right-hander, who is now expected to begin the season as the Rockies' closer, owns a 4.91 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 6/2 K/BB ratio across 3 2/3 innings so far in Cactus League play. His health is certainly a concern, but Holland looks to be a considerable bargain in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts.

The Reds are expected to carry a second left-hander in their Opening Day bullpen, with either Lucas Luetge or Wandy Peralta joining Tony Cingrani.

Luetge, a non-roster invitee, owns a 1.93 ERA in what has been an impressive spring and looks like the leading candidate for the role. He won't hold any fantasy value though outside of deep NL-only formats that count holds.

Brody Chernof, the son of Indians' general manager Mike Chernof, told Tom Hamilton during Sunday's broadcast that his father is trying to lock up Francisco Lindor for seven years.

Chernof was a guest in the booth and was asked by the veteran announcer if the elder Chernof was working on any deals at the moment. The Indians just finalized a contract extension with Jose Ramirez, and locking up Lindor would certainly be high on their list of priorities.

Jefry Marte went 1-for-4 with a double and three RBI as the Angels fell to the Royals in Cactus League play on Sunday.

Marte's bases-clearing double off Jason Hammel capped off a six-run fifth inning but wouldn't be enough to lead the Angels to victory. Marte has done a nice job at the dish this spring, hitting .300 with three homers and 13 RBI. He'll open the season in a reserve role for the Halos.
