C Gerald Laird signed a five-day extension with the Diamondbacks.

Laird had an opt-out in his contract that had to be exercised (or not) by Tuesday. He'll remain in camp until Sunday. Arizona is desperate for catching options and despite a batting average of just .200 this spring, it's very likely that Laird will make the Opening Day roster.
Mar 31 - 3:12 PM

Brewers optioned C Juan Centeno to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Centeno has a solid glove, though he lacks much pop in his bat (.289/.342/.340 in the minors last season). He'll serve as organizational depth.
Mar 31 - 3:08 PM

Brewers re-signed RHP Chris Perez to a minor league contract.

That was fast. The Brewers released Perez just two days ago. It's been a strange week for Perez, who was pulled from Sunday's game with an ankle injury, subsequently released, then re-signed two days later. OK, Brewers, you do you. Perez posted a 4.27 ERA with a 1.36 WHIP in 46 1/3 relief innings with the Dodgers in 2014. He'll serve as bullpen depth in the minors, unless the Brewers opt to cut him again tomorrow.
Mar 31 - 2:56 PM

Mariners re-signed OF Franklin Gutierrez to a minor league contract.

Gutierrez was released and quickly re-signed, which allows the Mariners to avoid paying a $100,000 retention bonus. The 32-year-old outfielder didn't play at all last season due to health issues and was limited this spring with a groin issue. However, he was likely ticketed for Triple-A all along.
Mar 31 - 2:54 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) indicated that he will be "fine" for Opening Day.

Ellsbury's been battling an oblique injury since the middle of March, but he's making strides in his recovery and feels he'll be ready to start on Opening Day. On Friday, he took indoor BP. The next step for Ellsbury will be a major league spring game. He looks like he's on track for the team's opener, barring a setback in the next few days.
Mar 31 - 2:43 PM

Chad Gaudin (arm) will begin the season in extended spring training.

Gaudin has been shut down with a nerve injury in his neck that's caused his fingers to tingle. In addition to the neck injury, he also has been battling arm soreness. He'll continue to rest in Arizona until doctors clear him for baseball activities.
Mar 31 - 2:34 PM

Dodgers released RHP Dustin McGowan.

Because of a slew of arm injuries, McGowan has logged only 128 2/3 innings over the last six seasons. In 2014, he finally avoided the DL, posting a 4.17 ERA with a 61/33 K/BB ratio over eight starts and 45 relief appearances for the Blue Jays. But he then allowed six runs in eight innings this spring in Dodgers camp after signing a one-year, $507,500 contract in late February.
Mar 31 - 2:28 PM

Coco Crisp (elbow) said that he "doesn't know" if he'll be ready for Opening Day.

Crisp played in a minor league camp game on Tuesday, going 0-3 with a walk. The A's have been going slow with Crisp this spring. That he is still uncertain of his status for the opener could be an indication that a DL trip is an increasing possibility. Crisp has been moved to left field from center, in the hopes of preserving the veteran's health.
