Kyle Hendricks got food poisoning this weekend in Las Vegas.

Hendricks said he stopped at a taco place and called it a "bad decision." He spent most of the day Monday in the training room at the Cubs' spring training facility, but this is not something that should affect his readiness for the opening of the 2017 campaign. Hendricks, last year's ERA king, is slated to start the Cubs' fifth regular-season game.

Bo Schultz will have his right elbow examined by a specialist this week in New York.

Mike Wilner of Sportsnet says surgery is "considered likely" for the 31-year-old right-hander. Schultz was trying to win back a spot in the Toronto bullpen this spring after posting a rough 5.51 ERA in 16 relief appearances last year.

Addison Russell (back) is out of the Cubs' Cactus League lineup again on Monday.

Russell hasn't appeared in a Cactus League game since last Wednesday because of a stiff back, but it sounds like the Cubs are simply playing it safe. The young shortstop should be ready for Opening Day.
Mar 27 - 3:36 PM

Ben Zobrist (neck) remains out of Cactus League action on Monday.

Zobrist has been out for over a week because of a stiff neck, though it sounds like he might return Tuesday. The veteran second baseman should be fine by the first game of the 2017 regular season.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that Matt Albers could return to the Nationals on another minor league contract.

Albers was released by the Nationals on Monday morning, but he is apparently going to stay in contact with the club while he looks for a major league opportunity elsewhere. The 34-year-old right-hander tossed 11 2/3 scoreless innings this spring in the Grapefruit League, after posting a 6.31 ERA in 51 1/13 frames last season with the White Sox.

Robbie Grossman (groin) went through a full workout Monday in Twins camp.

Grossman has been kept out of Grapefruit League action for over a week because of a groin injury, but he took batting practice Sunday and added more baseball activities to his plate on Monday. The switch-hitting backup outfielder should be ready for Opening Day.

Phillies reassigned RHP Michael Mariot to minor league camp.

Mariot had a 4.15 ERA and 9/4 K/BB ratio in 8 2/3 innings this spring in Grapefruit League play. The right-hander will function as organizational bullpen depth for Philadelphia in 2017.

Phillies optioned OF Roman Quinn to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Quinn was always ticketed for Triple-A out of spring training, but he should be brought up for good at some point in 2017. The 23-year-old outfield prospect batted .302/.372/.451 with six home runs and 36 stolen bases in 77 games last season between rookie ball and Double-A Reading. He then made his MLB debut as a September callup.
