Mat Latos has been informed that he will not be on the Blue Jays' Opening Day roster.

Latos now must decide whether to become a free agent or accept an assignment to Triple-A Buffalo. The veteran right-hander had a 6.75 ERA in 14 2/3 innings this spring in the Grapefruit League, after posting a 4.89 ERA in 70 innings last season between the White Sox and Nationals.

Corey Seager (oblique) is aiming to join the Dodgers for Saturday's exhibition game in Los Angeles.

Seager will stay back in Dodgers camp to work on his swing in minor league games while the majority of the major league roster heads to Anaheim later this week for two exhibition contests. Once the Freeway Series shifts to Dodger Stadium on Saturday, the star shortstop should be active. He is in no danger of missing the club's first regular-season game April 3 against the Padres.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed Monday that Scott Kazmir (hip) will open the season on the disabled list.

Kazmir again struggled with velocity and effectiveness in his return to Cactus League play Sunday versus the Rangers, yielding three earned runs on five walks and three hits over just three innings. "It's something with the hip," Roberts told the media on Monday morning. There is no timetable for Kazmir's 2017 debut.

Tyler Thornburg was scratched from a scheduled Grapefruit League appearance Monday due to an upper right trapezius spasm.

That's not good news for a guy who hasn't pitched in a Grapefruit League game since March 1. He's been working through a dead arm phase, and this trapezius spasm -- even if it turns out to be minor -- could steer him toward the disabled list ahead of Opening Day. Thornburg was acquired from the Brewers in December after registering a brilliant 2.15 ERA with 90 strikeouts in 67 innings last season.

Khris Davis (quad) is not on the A's lineup card for Monday or Tuesday.

He did play in a minor league game Sunday, but the Athletics are holding Davis out of Cactus League play as he works through a sore quad. It sounds like he's not in jeopardy of missing Opening Day.

Rangers reassigned OF Jared Hoying to minor league camp.

Hoying was non-tendered by Texas in early December and then re-signed one week later to a non-guaranteed minor league deal. He will go on serving as organizational outfield depth for the Rangers.
Mar 27 - 12:31 PM

Rangers optioned RHP Eddie Gamboa to Triple-A Round Rock.

Gamboa was acquired from the Rays in mid-February for a player to be named later or cash considerations. He will function as organizational rotation and relief depth this year for Texas.
Mar 27 - 12:29 PM

Rangers released 1B James Loney.

Loney batted just .174 with a .485 OPS this spring in the Cactus League, failing to earn a spot on the Rangers' bench. The veteran first baseman should be able to find another non-guaranteed minor league deal.
