Jose Quintana has been named the White Sox' Opening Day starter.

That's assuming he's not traded before then. Quintana was the obvious choice to take the ball in the opener, of course, following the team's offseason trade of Chris Sale. The left-hander boasts a 3.35 ERA over the last four seasons and has made at least 32 starts each of those years.

Tyler Thornburg (arm) walked one and struck out two over a scoreless inning in a minor league game Friday.

He was clocked in the 91-94 mph range with his fastball. Thornburg has been going through a "dead arm" phase that has limited him to just two Grapefruit League appearances. However, Friday's showing looks to be a positive step and there remains hope that he'll be ready for Opening Day.

Adam Rosales is dealing with a minor shoulder injury.

As a result, he'll play in a minor league game Friday instead of a Cactus League action. Rosales should be fine.

Khris Davis will be held out of game action until at least Sunday because of a minor quad injury.

It sounds like the Athletics are just being cautious with their slugger here. Davis is batting .250 this spring and has yet to homer after going deep 42 times in his first season in Oakland.

Addison Russell was scratched from Friday's lineup due to a stiff back.

It looks to be a day-to-day situation. Russell is batting .281 with five home runs this spring.

Sportsnet's Arash Madani reports that Marco Estrada is expected to be the Blue Jays' Opening Day starter.

He'll be followed by J.A. Happ, Marcus Stroman, Francisco Liriano and Aaron Sanchez. Estrada has earned the Opening Day assignment after putting up a 3.30 ERA across 63 appearances -- 57 starts -- for the Blue Jays over the last two seasons.

Corey Seager (oblique) will play seven innings in a minor league game Saturday.

Seager got three at-bats in a minor league game Tuesday and played five innings in one Thursday, so he's slowly but surely upping his progression. It's possible he'll continue to be held out of Cactus League action just in case the Dodgers need to backdate a disabled list stint in the event of a setback. However, all signs are pointing to Seager being ready to go on Opening Day.
Mar 24 - 1:11 PM

Diamondbacks re-assigned OF Oswaldo Arcia, RHP Erik Davis, LHP Brian Matusz and C Josh Thole to minor league camp.

There are some notable names among these cuts, but none of them come as a surprise. Arcia has bounced around to multiple organizations after falling out of favor with the Twins.
