Steven Souza (blister) played only defense in a minor league game Sunday.
Souza has dealt with a blister for a few days and isn't ready to swing a bat in a game yet. He'll probably be fine by Opening Day but obviously doesn't have a ton of time.
Rays placed RHP Kevin Gadea on the 60-day disabled list with right elbow tendinitis.
The Rays had been set to offer the Rule 5 pick back to the Mariners, but instead they'll stash him on the DL. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Derek Norris.
Rays signed C Derek Norris to a one-year contract.
The deal was reported Friday and is now official. Norris will reportedly make under $2 million, with more available in incentives. He's also owed another $700,000 from the Nationals and will be under team control through 2018. Norris is coming off an awful season that saw him bat just .186/.255/.328, and he's also been dinged for his defense. However, the Rays are viewing him as an upgrade over Curt Casali and Luke Maile until Wilson Ramos (knee) is ready.
Brewers optioned LHP Brent Suter to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
He held a 4.00 ERA this spring over eight appearances. Suter had a solid 3.32 ERA over 21 2/3 frames for the Brewers last season and should get an opportunity again eventually as a starter or long reliever.
Francisco Cervelli was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to fatigue and "a little bit" of continued soreness in his right foot, according to Pirates general manager Neal Huntington.
Cervelli had some soreness in the foot during the second half last season and it's creeped up on him a bit this spring. It doesn't look to be overly concerning at this point, though.
Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press writes that the "leading option" for Glen Perkins (shoulder) is to start the season on the 60-day disabled list.
Perkins has progressed well of late in his recovery from major shoulder surgery, but he hasn't appeared in any games this spring and the Twins are going to proceed extra cautiously with him. It's unclear when he might be ready for game action.
Indians optioned RHP Joseph Colon to Triple-A Columbus; re-assigned INF Chris Colabello, Cs Erik Kratz and Adam Moore, LHP Tyler Olson, OFs Daniel Robertson and Bradley Zimmer and INF Richie Shaffer to minor league camp.
Shaffer opened some eyes this spring with four home runs following a swing change that he's worked on, but it wasn't enough to make the roster. Top prospect Zimmer figures to get a chance this season given the uncertainty in the Indians' outfield.
Indians optioned RHP Mike Clevinger to Triple-A Columbus.
Clevinger has really struggled this spring (11.12 ERA), but he didn't have much of a shot to make the Opening Day roster, anyway. He'll be part of Columbus' rotation.
