Shawn Armstrong has made the Indians' Opening Day roster.

Armstrong did well for himself as a September call-up last year, contributing a rock-solid 2.53 ERA over 10 outings for the Tribe. He'll be employed as a middle reliever this year with Andrew Miller and Cody Allen handling most of Cleveland's high leverage opportunities.

Indians optioned RHP Carlos Frias to Triple-A Columbus.

LHP Kyle Crockett and RHP Nick Goody are also being sent to Columbus. Frias was acquired from the Dodgers in January but couldn't beat out Shawn Armstrong for the final spot in Cleveland's pen. For his career, the right-hander carries a 4.50 ERA over 33 big league appearances (15 starts).
Mar 28 - 2:31 PM

Pirates reassigned RHP Josh Lindblom to minor league camp.

The 29-year-old held his own against big leaguers this spring, compiling a 4.29 ERA over six Grapefruit League outings (three starts). Lindblom will likely start off the year with Triple-A Indianapolis.
Mar 28 - 2:25 PM

Diamondbacks designated RHP Evan Marshall for assignment.

That clears a roster spot for Christian Walker, who was claimed off waivers from Cincinnati on Tuesday. Marshall was optioned to Triple-A Reno last week. The 26-year-old middle reliever holds a 4.50 ERA across 85 major league appearances.

Diamondbacks claimed 1B/OF Christian Walker off waivers from the Reds.

The D'Backs cleared a roster spot for Walker by designating reliever Evan Marshall for assignment. Walker has bounced around this spring, beginning camp with Baltimore before making pit stops in Atlanta and Cincinnati. The 26-year-old spent all of last year in Triple-A, hitting .264 with 18 HR and 64 RBI over 131 appearances for Norfolk.
Mar 28 - 2:15 PM

A.J. Pierzynski is joining Fox Sports as a full-time analyst.

That means Pierzynski's 19-year career in the big leagues is officially over. The 40-year-old had a tendency to rub people the wrong way with his brash personality (a fact he readily admits) but was a productive hitter throughout his career, batting .280 with 188 homers over 7,290 major league at-bats for seven different clubs. Pierzynski made two All-Star appearances and won a World Series with the White Sox in 2005. He's been a part of Fox's postseason coverage for several years.

Julio Urias will not be on the Dodgers' Opening Day roster.

Urias is starting on Tuesday and will remain with the Dodgers for their upcoming freeway series against the Angels. The young left-hander will bide his time in the minors until a spot opens up for him in the big league rotation. Urias is likely to open the year in extended spring training after logging just 5 2/3 innings in the Cactus League this spring.
