Tigers released RHP Mark Lowe.

Lowe signed a two-year, $11 million contract with the Tigers last winter but won't make it to the end of the deal (although the Tigers will still pay him). The veteran reliever struck out a batter per inning for Detroit last season but also posted an ugly 7.11 ERA over 54 appearances. He's put up a 5.19 ERA over nine appearances this spring. Lowe should be able to catch on elsewhere pretty quickly now that he can be had at the veteran minimum.

Red Sox optioned RHP Noe Ramirez to Triple-A Pawtucket; re-assigned OFs Brian Bogusevic, Rusney Castillo and Allen Craig; 3B Matt Dominguez, C Jake DePew and RHP Hector Velasquez to minor league camp.

Ramirez struck out 17 batters in 9 2/3 relief innings this spring, but that wasn't enough to land an Opening Day roster spot. He'll be up with the big club eventually.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle called Jesse Hahn the "clear odd man out" in the Athletics' starting rotation.

Kendall Graveman, Sean Manaea and Jharel Cotton have already been announced as Oakland's No. 1-3 starters and Slusser suspects the final two spots will go to Andrew Triggs and Raul Alcantara. Hahn has had a miserable spring and fared poorly in both the majors and minors last season. Following another meltdown against the Dodgers on Saturday, Hahn's rotation chances are slim to none.

According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the Red Sox could be a team to watch for Eric Hosmer if the Royals shop him this summer.

Hosmer, Lorenzo Cain and Mike Moustakas are headed for free agency and the Royals could shop all three if the team falls out of contention by the trade deadline. Adding Hosmer to an already stacked Boston lineup would make the Red Sox heavy favorites to win the American League. Of course, he'd only be a rental as top prospect Sam Travis is considered Boston's first baseman of the future.

Jae-gyun Hwang is expected to begin the year with Triple-A Sacramento.

Hwang has had a good spring, hitting .308 with four homers and 11 RBI through 39 at-bats. However it wouldn't hurt for him to get more seasoning while playing on a daily basis in the minor leagues. In particular, Hwang said he's still getting used to the strike zone and wants to improve his defense at third base.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said there's no timetable for Jeff Locke's (biceps) return.

Locke recently threw a 15-pitch bullpen session and is due for another one in a few days. "Everything is progressing still," said Mattingly. "And that's our main thing with him, start building him up." After Locke gets a few bullpens under his belt, he'll likely advance to a minor league rehab assignment. The ex-Pirate is primed for a long relief role this season and could make a few starts here and there.

Carter Capps (elbow) is expected to make his Cactus League debut Monday against the Mariners.

Capps has pitched in minor league games but this will be his first go-round against big-leaguers. The right-hander is on the comeback trail after undergoing Tommy John surgery last spring. Capps will be a valuable late-inning arm for the Padres when he's at full strength.

Giants reassigned RHP Jose Dominguez to minor league camp.

Dominguez was hoping to carve a spot for himself in the Giants' bullpen but looked sluggish over five Cactus League outings, contributing a 5.79 ERA during that span. San Francisco's roster is down to 39 with a little over a week to go before the regular season.
