Pirates optioned RHP John Holdzkom to Triple-A Indianapolis.

The 27-year old posted a 3.38 ERA while pitching eight spring innings. Should the Pirates need additional bullpen depth, Holdzkom could see a call-up later this year. In 2014, he put up a 1.73 ERA over 36+ innings in the minors.
Mar 31 - 8:27 AM

Dodgers signed RHP Freddy Garcia to a minor league contract.

Garcia, 38, pitched in Taiwan last season after failing to make the Braves' Opening Day roster. He held a 4.37 ERA and 1.25 WHIP across 17 appearances -- 13 starts -- for the Orioles and Braves in 2013. Garcia will give the Dodgers some rotation depth in the minors with Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) out indefinitely and Brandon Beachy (elbow) working his way back from Tommy John surgery.

MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez reports that Huston Street isn't expected to complete a contract extension until after Josh Hamilton's situation is resolved.

Hamilton won't be paid while suspended, and the Angels could use those savings on a new deal for Street. It's unclear at this point how long Hamilton -- who is slated to make $23 million in 2015 -- will be suspended, but a resolution is expected prior to Opening Day. Both Street and the Halos appear optimistic that they'll get something done. The closer will make $7 million in 2015 and turns 32 in August.

Koji Uehara said his ailing left hamstring felt the "same as last time" when he tried to throw a bullpen session Monday.

Uehara hasn't pitched in a game since March 14 and remains unable to throw at 100 percent effort off a mound without his hamstring bothering him. The reliever is expected to begin the season on the disabled list and will likely hang back in extended spring training for a bit. Edward Mujica will be the Red Sox' primary closer while Uehara is on the shelf.

Roberto Hernandez has been named the Astros' No. 5 starter.

Manager A.J. Hinch hasn't decided whether Hernandez will start the third, fourth or fifth game, but the veteran has been told he'll be part of the rotation. The veteran right-hander managed to post a decent 3.71 ERA this spring despite a 5/7 K/BB ratio over 17 innings. He's not a bad guy to have to eat innings, but there's no fantasy value to be had here.
Mar 30 - 9:03 PM

Ian Kennedy was superb Monday, recording seven strikeouts over six scoreless frames in a Cactus League victory over the Reds.

Kennedy issued just one free pass and only one of the six hits he allowed went for extra bases. The right-hander has a solid 3.78 ERA with a strikeout per inning this spring and should continue to be a nice fantasy option while calling Petco Park home.
Mar 30 - 8:47 PM

Anthony DeSclafani was touched up for six runs over six innings of work on Monday against the Padres.

He walked just one and struck out four, but DeSclafani was undone by the longball, serving up three homers. It's a hiccup in what has otherwise been a great spring, as the soon-to-be 25-year-old entered the day with a 1.83 Cactus League ERA. DeSclafani will open the season in the Reds' rotation.
Mar 30 - 8:45 PM

Matt Kemp launched a two-run homer in Monday's win over the Reds.

The dinger came in the fourth inning off of Anthony DeSclafani. Kemp has mashed the ball all spring, as he's now hitting .375 with four homers, five doubles, a triple and 13 RBI. Perhaps even more importantly, he's looked healthy after whispers over the winter that he has arthritis in both of his hips.
