Denard Span (abdomen) said Sunday that he isn't sure when he'll be cleared to play in rehab games.

Span is making steady progress from his second core muscle surgery -- he ran sprints and took swings with a fungo bat this past weekend in Florida -- but the Nationals have not yet mapped out a rehab assignment for him. Span probably won't be activated from the disabled list until sometime in early-to-mid May. Michael Taylor is expected to be Washington's primary center fielder in April.

Justin Verlander told reporters Monday that he's taking it "day to day" with his ailing triceps.

Verlander had to be pulled from a Grapefruit League start Friday due to discomfort in his throwing arm and he won't take his next turn in the Tigers' spring rotation on Thursday. This isn't believed to be a serious injury, but the veteran right-hander may have to open the 2015 regular season on the 15-day disabled list.

Orioles reassigned C J.P. Arencibia to minor league camp.

Arencibia is currently fighting through a flexor mass strain in his right arm. He wasn't expected to make the Orioles' Opening Day roster anyway and will presumably begin the 2015 season at Triple-A Norfolk.

Tanner Scheppers will get an MRI on his right ankle.

Scheppers sprained the ankle in early March and then re-aggravated it on Sunday afternoon. Opening Day is just a week away, so the right-handed reliever may have to spend some time on the disabled list.

Rangers optioned RHP Nick Tepesch to Triple-A Round Rock.

Nick Martinez took the final spot in the Rangers' rotation, so Tepesch will act as organizational depth. Tepesch had a 10.38 ERA this spring in the Cactus League.

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets "still may trade right-hander Dillon Gee within the month."

Gee moved back into the Mets' starting rotation following Zack Wheeler's season-ending injury, but Rubin hears that team officials would rather have prospect Rafael Montero in that vacated spot. Gee held the Cardinals to two runs over seven innings on Sunday, lowering his Grapefruit League ERA to 2.49. He's due $5.3 million in 2015 and will be arbitration-eligible for the final time in 2016.

Devin Mesoraco said Monday morning that he is not concerned about his hamstring.

"I think it's going to fine," the young catcher told reporters in Reds camp. Mesoraco was removed from Sunday's Cactus League game after pulling up lame while running the bases and he is not in the lineup Monday. But the Reds believe it was just a cramp and Mesoraco said he would be playing if it were the regular season.

Jonathan Pettibone is scheduled to face live hitters Tuesday for the first time since undergoing surgery last June to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder.

Pettibone has already completed 10 bullpen sessions without issue. The 24-year-old right-hander will hang back at extended spring training when camp breaks, but he could be an option for the Phillies' starting rotation at some point in May. It's a very weak group of starters beyond Cole Hamels.
