Jeurys Familia is expected to meet with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred on Monday regarding his offseason domestic violence incident.

Familia left Mets camp on Sunday night and flew to New York for the meeting. Manfred is almost certain to levy some sort of suspension on the 27-year-old closer, who was accused (but ultimately not charged) with assaulting his wife on October 31 in New Jersey. Addison Reed is in position to open the 2017 regular season as the Mets' closer.

Colin Rea (elbow) is scheduled to begin playing catch on Opening Day.

Rea was initially aiming to start a throwing program in early March, but the Padres backed him off that plan for precautionary reasons. The right-hander is working his way back from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and will likely miss the entire 2017 season.

Reds released OF Ryan Raburn.

Raburn showed decent power this spring, cranking three home runs in 32 at-bats in Cactus League play, but he was always a longshot to make the Reds' roster out of camp. The soon-to-be 36-year-old outfielder will try to latch on with another organization.

Adrian Beltre is out of the Rangers' Cactus League lineup on Monday due to a tight right calf muscle.

Beltre suffered a Grade 1 strain of his left calf early on in Rangers camp. This right calf injury is not considered as serious, but we are just one week from Opening Day. Look for another status update Tuesday.

Jorge Soler has been diagnosed with a strained oblique and will likely open the 2017 season on the disabled list.

His disabled list stint can be backdated to sometime in March so that he might only have to sit out one week of regular-season games. Soler, acquired this winter from the Cubs for closer Wade Davis, was batting just .143/.254/.286 through 59 plate appearances in this year's Cactus League. Terrance Gore now projects to make the Royals' roster out of camp.

Raul Mondesi has been named the Royals' starting second baseman.

Royals manager Ned Yost made that announcement Monday morning in camp. Mondesi batted just .185/.231/.281 over his first 149 plate appearances in 2016, though he did also steal nine bases. The 21-year-old carries some AL-only fantasy appeal in his new starting job. Whit Merrifield and Christian Colon will continue to battle for bench spots.
Mar 27 - 11:26 AM

Jarrod Dyson (hamstring) is expected to take 10 plate appearances in minor league games Monday.

But his running will be limited as he works his way back from a hamstring injury. Dyson's game relies heavily on his legs, so the Mariners have to be careful here. His status is very much up in the air with the regular season approaching.

Shae Simmons will have his forearm examined this week Dr. Ed Khalfayan.

Simmons has been bothered by right forearm discomfort since early March and can't seem to get over the hump. Greg Johns of MLB.com says the Mariners have again slowed his throwing program. Simmons is likely to be placed on the 10-day disabled list at the end of this week.
