Yusmeiro Petit has made the Angels' Opening Day roster.

Petit had been a non-roster invitee. The right-hander dominated in his five Cactus League outings, contributing a 0.75 ERA over 12 innings of work. He'll begin the year as a long reliever but could force his way into the starting rotation at some point.

Diamondbacks placed OF Socrates Brito on the 60-day disabled list with a disclosed finger.

Brito had surgery to repair his dislocated left ring finger earlier this month. He remains out indefinitely. Yasmany Tomas, A.J. Pollock and David Peralta will make up the Diamondbacks' Opening Day outfield.

Jorge De La Rosa has made the Diamondbacks' Opening Day roster.

De La Rosa didn't have a particularly strong spring (5.63 ERA in eight Cactus League outings) but the D'Backs are hoping he still has some juice left as a middle reliever/lefty specialist. Chase Field isn't a pitcher's park by any stretch, but it's certainly a step up from Coors Field, where De La Rosa spent his previous nine seasons.
Mar 28 - 1:25 PM

Diamondbacks optioned SS Ketel Marte to Triple-A Reno.

Marte showed flashes this spring (.250, 1 HR, 6 RBI in 48 Cactus League at-bats) but didn't do enough to secure a roster spot. After trading Jean Segura to Seattle this offseason, the D'Backs are left with Chris Owings and Nick Ahmed to man shortstop. Marte should see time with the big club at some point this year.
Mar 28 - 1:19 PM

Tom Wilhelmsen has made the Diamondbacks' Opening Day roster.

The Diamondbacks optioned Ketel Marte to Triple-A Reno to open up a roster spot for the veteran. Wilhelmsen agreed to a minor league deal with Arizona in February and impressed by posting a 0.96 ERA over nine Cactus League outings. He'll be used in middle relief.

Chris Bassitt (elbow) threw two sets of 15 pitches off a mound on Tuesday.

It's another step in Bassitt's recovery from Tommy John surgery. Bassitt still has hurdles to clear, but at least he's been able to avoid setbacks. If Bassitt continues on this trajectory, he should be ready to join the A's around midseason.
Mar 28 - 1:11 PM

Sonny Gray (lat) has been throwing at max effort from 105 feet.

Manager Bob Melvin said Gray feels great and is "asking for more." Despite his progress, the A's are going to play it safe by not rushing Gray in his recovery from a strained lat. The next step for him will be getting back on mound. Gray's best-case scenario is a return in mid-April.
Mar 28 - 1:05 PM

Padres purchased the contract of INF Erick Aybar from Triple-A El Paso.

Aybar has been officially added to the 40-man roster and will be the Opening Day shortstop. The 30-year-old fell off the map last year while batting .243/.303/.320 in 126 games between the Braves and Tigers, but he should have some value in NL-only formats as long as he keeps a starting job.
