Nicholas Castellanos homered, doubled and walked Sunday against the Blue Jays.
It's pretty much certain now that Castellanos will open up as the Tigers' No. 2 hitter. It's not the ideal spot for him, but it does give his fantasy value a boost. He's a nice late-round option in mixed leagues.
Miguel Cabrera singled in a run and struck out in two at-bats Sunday against the Blue Jays.
Cabrera was making his first appearance since suffering some back tightness in the WBC. He's not going to need many at-bats this week to ensure his presence in the Tigers' Opening Day lineup.
Joe Musgrove held the Nationals to one run over five innings in the Astros' 5-1 victory Sunday.
Musgrove struck out four and walked one while improving to 3-0 this spring. He'll fill in for Collin McHugh in the rotation early next month, and while that might be a short stay, there should be plenty of opportunities for him as the season goes on. He's a fine AL-only pick, and he'll be a streaming option in mixed leagues at times.
Gio Gonzalez had a rare off day in March in Sunday's loss, giving up five runs in five innings against the Astros.
Gonzalez entered with a 1.10 ERA in five starts this spring. He had allowed a total of 22 earned runs in 25 spring starts since 2013, so this one was truly unusual.
Yuli Gurriel went 2-for-4 with a double Sunday, raising his spring average to .333.
Gurriel started off quietly this spring, but he's 7-for-12 with two homers and three doubles in his last four games. Not that his starting job at first base was in any doubt entering the season, but the strong finish here should leave him less vulnerable to frequent off days (probably in favor of Marwin Gonzalez) early on.
Rockies placed RHP Chad Bettis on the 60-day disabled list with testicular cancer.
The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Mark Reynolds. Bettis began chemotherapy last week and is slated to miss most of the season.
Rockies purchased the contract of INF Mark Reynolds from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Reynolds will serve as the Rockies' regular first baseman until Ian Desmond (hand) returns. He batted .282/.356/.450 with 14 homers over 441 plate appearances with Colorado last season and isn't a bad short-term option in deeper fantasy formats.
Braves signed RHP David Hernandez to a minor league contract.
Hernandez opted out of his minor league deal with the Giants on Friday and apparently likes his potential opportunity with the Braves more. He might have to spend a little time in the minors first but should get a shot in Atlanta.
