Alex Cobb was scratched from a scheduled start in a minor league game Sunday due to lower back tightness.

It's obviously not ideal this close to Opening Day. There's no word yet on whether this could possible affect Cobb's ability to start the third game of the season as scheduled, but the Rays could have more on his status later Sunday. Cobb holds a 3.95 ERA over four starts this spring.

Anthony Gose will begin throwing bullpen sessions as a conversion to pitcher is considered.

Gose will play the outfield for Triple-A Toledo, but he could also eventually get into games as a pitcher if he looks good in side sessions. The 26-year-old threw in the mid-90s in high school.

Jhonny Peralta (knee) could return to game action Monday.

Peralta exited Saturday's game after fouling a ball off his left knee, but X-rays came back clean and he'll be fine. He'll open the season as the Cardinals' starting third baseman.
Mar 26 - 10:59 AM

John Gant (groin) could be sidelined for the next week.

Which means his spring training is over. Gant impressed this spring with a 1.50 ERA over seven appearances before tweaking his groin Saturday. Once healthy, he'll be part of Triple-A Memphis' rotation. The righty will get a shot with the Cardinals at some point, whether it's as a starter or reliever.

Joe Musgrove will start the fourth game of the season for the Astros.

Mike Fiers will get the fifth game, with the two hurlers preceded by Dallas Keuchel, Lance McCullers and Charlie Morton. Collin McHugh will get a late start to the season after battling through a "dead arm" phase this spring, but he'll likely bump either Musgrove or Fiers from the rotation sometime in April.

Reds pitching prospect Nick Travieso (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing.

Travieso was given a cortisone shot in his biceps to help combat some shoulder soreness that he's dealt with since the beginning of camp. He'll be part of Triple-A Louisville's rotation once he's healthy.
Mar 26 - 10:50 AM

Dilson Herrera (shoulder) has been fielding grounders and throwing across the diamond for the last several days.

Herrera hasn't played the field at all this spring due to nagging shoulder soreness, although it appears he's making progress. He'll begin the season at Triple-A Louisville but could eventually find his way into the Reds lineup if/when they trade Zack Cozart.
Mar 26 - 10:47 AM

Drew Storen's fastball has been clocked in the 88-90 mph range this spring.

Storen's velocity was down to 92 mph last season when he struggled to a 5.23 ERA, and it's dropped even more this spring. He's also posted a 15.88 ERA in six Cactus League appearances. It's possible he'll regain some zip on the heater once the regular season begins, but until that happens it's hard to take Storen seriously as a sleeper for saves.
