Tommy Milone pitched two scoreless innings Friday in his start versus the Rays.

The Twins have already made it clear that they don't see Mike Pelfrey as a reliever, suggesting that Milone might be on the outside looking in at the rotation when the season begins. He does seem like a better bet than Pelfrey to us, but given that he's a flyball pitcher set to work in front of a dreadful defensive outfield, he's still not a very appealing option.

Junior Lake left Friday's game against the Reds after hitting the second base bag awkwardly when he advanced on a wild pitch.

Lake was on the ground in pain for a bit but eventually walked off without any apparent issues. The Cubs should update his status soon, but it appears he'll be fine.
Mar 6 - 4:20 PM

Lucas Duda (oblique) hopes to be game-ready early next week.

As it turns out, Duda just hit off a tee and took some soft tosses Friday and didn't take batting practice as originally reported. It's nonetheless a nice step as the slugger works his way back from an oblique strain. Duda will have plenty of time to get ready for Opening Day as long as he doesn't have a setback.
Mar 6 - 3:36 PM

Alex Castellanos exited Friday's game versus the Tigers after being hit by a pitch on the right middle finger.

Castellanos immediately crumpled to the ground after being plunked by the Luke Putkonen offering. The non-roster invitee has been sent for X-rays.
Mar 6 - 3:34 PM

Daniel Murphy will undergo X-rays on his right hand.

The Mets announced that Murphy had a bruise after he was removed from Friday's game following a hit by pitch, but apparently that was just a preliminary diagnosis. For what it's worth, Murphy noted that he's not overly concerned even though his hand was noticeably swollen. An update on his status should be available later Friday.

Giants optioned RHP Ray Black to Double-A Richmond; re-assigned RHP Clayton Blackburn and LHP Nik Turley to minor league camp.

That the cuts came so early is a surprise, but none of the three were expected to make the team. Black can hit 100 mph regularly when he's healthy, but he's had a hard time staying on the field. Still, the 24-year-old could debut at some point in 2015 even though he's yet to appear above A-ball.
Mar 6 - 3:14 PM

Yankees signed INF Mat Gamel to a minor league contract.

Gamel hasn't played the last two seasons after back-to-back ACL tears. He's still just 29, but obviously he'll need to show he can stay healthy before being of any use to the Yankees.
Mar 6 - 3:06 PM

Sean Doolittle (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing.

Doolittle remains relegated to strengthening exercises as he rehabs a slight tear in his left rotator cuff. The A's are hoping their closer will be ready at some point in April, but obviously the longer it is until he resumes throwing, the less likely it will be that he's available that soon.
