Braves released RHP Blaine Boyer.

The club informed him on Saturday that he wouldn't be making the Opening Day bullpen and have given him an opportunity to latch on elsewhere. If he's unable to land a big league job, they would love to have him back on a minor league deal to function as bullpen depth at Triple-A Gwinnett.

The Astros informed Reid Brignac on Saturday that he won't be making the Opening Day roster.

He made a case for a reserve role with a strong showing in Cactus League play, hitting .326/.370/.512 with a homer and 10 RBI in 43 at-bats. He'll remain on the major league side of camp for now.

Cardinals optioned OF Tommy Pham to Triple-A Memphis.

This move comes as a bit of a surprise, as Pham entered spring training as the favorite to secure a reserve outfielder role with the club. He hurt his chances by hitting just .209/.320/.279 with a 16/4 K/BB ratio in 43 spring at-bats. His departure brings Jose Martinez closer to cracking the Opening Day roster.

Collin McHugh (arm) is scheduled to make his Grapefruit League debut on Monday against the Cardinals.

The veteran right-hander has been fighting through a "dead arm" phase and has only pitched in minor league games so far. He's expected to begin the season with a short stint on the disabled list before joining the Astros' rotation.
Mar 25 - 10:03 AM

While the Red Sox believe that Tyler Thornburg (arm) will be ready for Opening Day, he'll be eased into the primary setup role in front of closer Craig Kimbrel.

Thornburg looked good in a minor league game on Friday and there's growing optimism about his status for the start of the regular season. It sounds like he'll begin the year in lower leverage situations though until he shows that he's fully back to form. In that case, Joe Kelly would likely function in the eighth inning role.
Mar 25 - 9:58 AM

David Price (elbow) has shown improved strength and resumed throwing on Saturday with a short game of catch.

It's a small step, but one in the right-direction nonetheless. There remains no clear timetable for Price's return to the Red Sox but he'll certainly begin the season on the disabled list.
Mar 25 - 9:54 AM

Yadier Molina said Saturday that he will not discuss a contract extension during the upcoming season.

He's open to discussion in the final week of spring training, just doesn't want it to carry over as a distraction in the regular season. His preference is to remain with the Cardinals, but the veteran backstop is also intrigued at the idea of free agency.
Mar 25 - 9:52 AM

Colby Rasmus (hip) said Saturday that he expects to open the season on the disabled list.

The veteran outfielder, who has been serving as the designated hitter in Grapefruit League play, said he isn't yet comfortable playing in the outfield and that manager Kevin Cash said that's a prerequisite for making the active roster. Even if he starts the season on the DL, it should only be for a week or two.
