Diamondbacks prospect RHP Braden Shipley made his season debut Thursday, tossing five scoreless innings for Low-A South Bend.

The 22-year-old allowed five hits and one walk in the outing while striking out four batters. Shipley's start to the season was delayed by a minor case of biceps tendinitis, but he looked great in his Thursday debut. After signing with Arizona was the No. 15 overall pick last June, Shipley posted a 4.99 ERA and 40/14 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 39 2/3 innings between Short-Season Hillsboro and South Bend. The right-hander's is raw compared to most college pitchers, but he possesses the stuff to be a No. 2 starter in the major leagues and could move quickly this season.

Nationals recalled LHP Xavier Cedeno from Triple-A Syracuse.

He'll give the Nats a fresh arm after the bullpen was overused Thursday. Cedeno allowed one run over six relief innings for Washington last season.

Nationals optioned RHP Blake Treinen to Triple-A Syracuse.

He threw 60 pitches over 2 2/3 relief innings Thursday, so the Nationals are bringing in a fresh bullpen arm. Treinen has an interesting arm but still needs to work on his command.

Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) is on pace to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma on April 23.

Iwakuma had a successful simulated game Friday and is scheduled for one more bullpen session Sunday before being cleared for game action. It's not clear at this point how many rehab starts the right-hander will need, but he remains on pact for an early May return.

Indians prospect OF Clint Frazier made his season debut Thursday for Low-A Lake County.

The 19-year-old was 1-for-5 in the game with an RBI. Frazier, the No. 5 overall pick in the 2013 draft, was assigned to Lake County after spending his professional debut last summer in the Rookie-level Arizona League, where he batted .297/.362/.506 with 11 doubles, five triples, five home runs and 28 RBI in 44 games. Frazier possesses some of the best pure bat speed in the minor leagues and has the potential to be an All-Star-caliber player in his prime. However, his approach and pitch recognition is understandably raw given his age and lack of experience, and will likely require a few years to refine in the minor leagues.

Rockies prospect 3B Ryan McMahon continued to his torrid start to the season Thursday, going 1-for-3 with a home run for Low-A Asheville.

The home run was McMahon's sixth in 14 games, and he's now batting .326/.439/.783 with 10 RBI and a 13/10 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Over the past week the 19-year-old is batting .400 (8-for-20) with two doubles, four home runs, six RBI and five walks. Given his current pace, McMahon could be in store for an ahead-of-schedule promotion to High-A Modesto, where he'll have the potential to post even better power numbers in the hitter-friendly California League.

Franklin Gutierrez on Friday reiterated his desire to return to playing next season.

Gutierrez decided in February to take all of the 2014 season off as he focuses on his health. The outfielder averaged just 58 games played per season from 2011-13 due to a variety of health issues and over the winter was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis. He'll turn 32 next February and will surely have to settle for a minor league deal next offseason.

Zach Links of MLBTradeRumors.com reports that Manny Ramirez is receiving interest from "several" major league teams.

There have been reports that he could catch on with an independent league team, but Links says Manny is only considering a minor league deal or signing with a Japanese club. Slated to turn 42 next month, Ramirez spent last year in China and briefly at Triple-A with the Rangers before being released.
