Marlins re-assigned INF Scott Sizemore to minor league camp.

Sizemore had four hits in just 12 spring at-bats. The oft-injured infielder will provide depth at Triple-A.
Mar 27 - 3:30 PM

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Friday that it "could be unlikely" Domonic Brown (Achilles) is ready for Opening Day.

Sandberg said the outfielder is coming along "slowly" in his recovery from left Achilles tendinitis, an ailment he was diagnosed with a week ago. Brown had been hoping to return to game action around the middle of next week, but it's sounding like that won't happen. The Phillies might be forced to start Jeff Francoeur in right field on Opening Day.
Mar 27 - 3:25 PM

J.J. Hardy left Friday's game against the Rays with a sore left shoulder.

Hardy banged his shoulder on the ground on a dive up the middle. He's expected to be fine, though, as he wanted to take his next at-bat before Orioles manager Buck Showalter overruled him. Consider Hardy day-to-day.
Mar 27 - 2:52 PM

Justin Verlander has been diagnosed with a right triceps cramp.

Verlander had to exit Friday's game with the ailment. Obviously any injury to a pitcher's arm is far from ideal, but the Tigers are convinced it's no big deal and expect the right-hander to be ready for his final spring training start next week. Verlander will be re-evaluated on Saturday.
Mar 27 - 2:22 PM

Josh Reddick (oblique) is not expected to be ready for Opening Day.

Reddick has progressed in the right direction since tweaking his oblique three weeks ago, but he just doesn't have enough time to prepare for the opener. The outfielder is expected to return to game action over the weekend and isn't expected to miss more than a handful of regular season contests. Ben Zobrist will handle right field until Reddick is ready, with Eric Sogard filling in at second base. Tyler Ladendorf and Billy Burns now have a shot to crack the Opening Day roster.
Mar 27 - 2:13 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Friday that Tyler Clippard will serve as the team's interim closer while Sean Doolittle (shoulder) is sidelined.

The announcement certainly comes as no surprise. Doolittle (shoulder) is slated to play catch on Friday, but he's still expected to miss around the first month of the season. Clippard will handle the ninth inning until Doolittle is ready, making him mixed-league worthy in fantasy leagues.
Mar 27 - 2:07 PM

Justin Verlander left Friday's game versus the Blue Jays with an apparent injury.

Verlander called out the trainer after having to cover first base on a play. It was rainy in Florida, so he probably slipped and tweaked something. The Tigers will provide an update on Verlander's status later Friday. He allowed one run over 2 2/3 innings before exiting.
Mar 27 - 2:00 PM

David Freese (elbow) is expected to return to action on Saturday.

Freese suffered a hyperextended left elbow during a collision in Wednesday's game and is taking a couple days off as a precaution. He's batting .282 with a homer and seven RBI in 14 games this spring.
