Chris Tillman (shoulder) is tentatively scheduled to pitch in an extended spring training game on April 11.

Tillman is ready to ramp up his throwing program after recently receiving a cortisone shot in his shoulder. He's scheduled for bullpen sessions on Saturday and then Monday and Wednesday next week in Baltimore before progressing to a live batting practice session on April 8 in Sarasota. There are still a bunch of steps here, but it looks like the Orioles have mapped out a plan that could get him in the rotation by the end of April.

Lonnie Chisenhall (shoulder) will begin the season on the 10-day disabled list.

Chisenhall injured his right shoulder when he collided with the outfield wall last Friday and needs some extra time to heal. The Indians are optimistic that he could be ready as soon as the team's first homestand. With Chisenhall sidelined, Abraham Almonte will make the Opening Day roster.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus confirmed Wednesday that Matt Boyd has won a rotation spot.

This confirms what was reported on Tuesday night. Boyd earned the job after posting a a 2.49 ERA and 21/0 K/BB ratio across 21 2/3 innings during Grapefruit League action. Anibal Sanchez has made some strides recently, but he's set to begin the year in the bullpen.

Rule 5 pick Justin Haley has secured a spot on the Twins' Opening Day roster.

Haley was acquired from the Angels in December after being selected from the Red Sox in December's Rule 5 Draft. The 25-year-old posted a 4.96 ERA and 13/4 K/BB ratio over 16 1/3 innings this spring. Barring injury, the right-hander will have to stay on the active roster all season or be offered back to his original club. Twins manager Paul Molitor also confirmed Wednesday that Michael Tonkin will be in the Opening Day bullpen.

Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet syndrome surgery) is expected to throw a simulated game on Saturday.

Ross is expected to stretch things out to around 45 pitches over three innings. He'll be a bit behind to begin the year after surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, but the Rangers are optimistic that he could join the rotation by early May. Ross posted a 3.07 ERA with 9.2 K/9 between 2013-2015, so there's some nice upside if he comes back feeling good.
Mar 29 - 12:10 PM

Andrew Cashner (biceps) is expected to throw three innings on Friday against the Royals.

Cashner, who is making his way back from right biceps tendinitis, will pitch in relief of Cole Hamels. He's going to start the year on the disabled list, but it sounds like he could be ready relatively soon.
Mar 29 - 12:06 PM

Adrian Beltre underwent an MRI on his right calf on Monday.

Fortunately, the test showed that it's not considered a significant strain. The Rangers are calling Beltre day-to-day for now, so while it's not ideal, the feeling is that he'll be ready for the season.
Mar 29 - 12:03 PM

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Wednesday that Gregory Polanco won't travel with the team to Montreal due to "a technical glitch" with his passport.

The issue is related to travel from the World Baseball Classic. It's expected to be cleared up soon and won't impact his ability to play when the team travels to Toronto later this season. More importantly, Polanco hasn't played since Thursday due to discomfort in his left shoulder. The Pirates remain optimistic about his ability to be ready for Opening Day.
