Cubs optioned INF Javier Baez to Triple-A Iowa.

Baez batted just .173/.218/.231 with 20 strikeouts in 16 games this spring in the Cactus League, looking like the very same hitter who hit .169/.227/.324 with 95 strikeouts in 52 games last season as a rookie. Tommy La Stella and Arismendy Alcantara will see time at second base until the powerful but inconsistent Baez improves his plate discipline.

Padres acquired RHP Cory Mazzoni and a player to be named later from the Mets for LHP Alex Torres.

Mazzoni posted an underwhelming 4.67 ERA and 49/12 K/BB ratio in 52 innings last season for the Mets' Triple-A affiliate and he had been struggling this spring in the Grapefruit League. The right-hander was a second-round pick in the 2011 MLB Amateur Draft, but he's not much of a prospect.

Mets acquired LHP Alex Torres from the Padres for RHP Cory Mazzoni and a player to be named later.

New York has been on the hunt for left-handed relief help since losing Josh Edgin to Tommy John surgery. Torres isn't your typical lefty specialist -- his career numbers against right-handers are better than his numbers against lefties -- but the 27-year-old boasts a 2.55 ERA in 120 career major league innings and he won't even be arbitration-eligible until 2017. It's a decent get.
Mar 30 - 12:45 PM

Reds optioned RHP Pedro Villarreal to Triple-A Louisville.

Villarreal was shelled this spring in the Cactus League, yielding 11 earned runs on 15 hits in just eight innings. He'll be emergency relief depth for the Reds.
Mar 30 - 12:40 PM

Reds released LHP Paul Maholm.

Maholm was pulled out of the Reds' rotation race in mid-March and he wasn't going to land a job in the bullpen. The 32-year-old left-hander should have no trouble finding a new organization, but an Opening Day roster spot may be harder to come by.
Mar 30 - 12:38 PM

Elvis Andrus was scratched from the Rangers' Cactus League lineup Monday with a stiff lower back.

It doesn't sound like something that will affect his status for the start of the season. Andrus is batting .389/.410/.639 in 39 plate appearances this spring.
Mar 30 - 12:36 PM

Indians optioned OF Tyler Holt to Triple-A Columbus.

Holt was 11-for-42 (.262) with two extra-base hits in 18 games this spring in the Cactus League. He'll function as organizational outfield depth for the Tribe.
Mar 30 - 12:33 PM

White Sox reassigned RHP Chris Beck to minor league camp.

Beck had a decent showing this spring in the Cactus League, but the 24-year-old right-hander was never really in consideration for an Opening Day roster spot. He should get a shot at some point this summer.
