Khris Davis (quad) is not on the A's lineup card for Monday or Tuesday.

He did play in a minor league game Sunday, but the Athletics are holding Davis out of Cactus League play as he works through a sore quad. It sounds like he's not in jeopardy of missing Opening Day.
Mar 27 - 12:41 PM

Rangers reassigned OF Jared Hoying to minor league camp.

Hoying was non-tendered by Texas in early December and then re-signed one week later to a non-guaranteed minor league deal. He will go on serving as organizational outfield depth for the Rangers.
Mar 27 - 12:31 PM

Rangers optioned RHP Eddie Gamboa to Triple-A Round Rock.

Gamboa was acquired from the Rays in mid-February for a player to be named later or cash considerations. He will function as organizational rotation and relief depth this year for Texas.
Mar 27 - 12:29 PM

Rangers released 1B James Loney.

Loney batted just .174 with a .485 OPS this spring in the Cactus League, failing to earn a spot on the Rangers' bench. The veteran first baseman should be able to find another non-guaranteed minor league deal.
Mar 27 - 12:28 PM

Athletics released OF Alejandro De Aza.

Mark Canha and Jaff Decker are projected to open the season as the A's backup outfielders, so De Aza will try to find work elsewhere. The soon-to-be 32-year-old was in camp this spring on a non-guaranteed minor league deal, and he should be able to find another one on the free agent market. De Aza is a .261/.328/.398 career hitter in the major leagues.
Mar 27 - 12:08 PM

Diamondbacks reassigned RHP Rubby De La Rosa, OF Reymond Fuentes, C Hank Conger, and INF/OF Kristopher Negron to minor league camp.

An unsurprising round of Monday morning cuts from Diamondbacks camp. De La Rosa underwent two rounds of stem-cell therapy over the offseason as he attempts to avoid Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. It's not clear what the exact plan is for him in early 2017, but he figures to report to Triple-A Reno once he's healthy.
Mar 27 - 11:59 AM

Jeurys Familia is expected to meet with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred on Monday regarding his offseason domestic violence incident.

Familia left Mets camp on Sunday night and flew to New York for the meeting. Manfred is almost certain to levy some sort of suspension on the 27-year-old closer, who was accused (but ultimately not charged) of assaulting his wife on October 31 in New Jersey. Addison Reed is in position to open the 2017 regular season as the Mets' primary ninth-inning man.
Mar 27 - 11:47 AM

Colin Rea (elbow) is scheduled to begin playing catch on Opening Day.

Rea was initially aiming to start a throwing program in early March, but the Padres backed him off that plan for precautionary reasons. The right-hander is working his way back from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and will miss the entire 2017 season.
