Angels optioned RHP Nick Tropeano to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Tropeano was in contention for the final spot in the Angels' rotation, battling with Andrew Heaney, but for the time being, it appears that the team will go with a four-man set. The righty put up decent numbers this spring (3.48 ERA in 10+ innings). He could find himself back in the rotation mix once the Angels need another starter.

Mike Adams told reporters that he will begin the season with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The Dodgers will pay Adams a $100,000 retention bonus. Adams has battled shoulder injuries over the last two season. This spring, he's allowed five runs in 4+ innings. "Health-wise I've been good. I haven't had any outings I've felt bad at all. I've just been inconsistent with performance," said Adams. The team is going slow with him because of his injury history, but if he's able to prove his health, he could serve as bullpen depth later in the season.

Joe Panik (ankle) is not in Tuesday's lineup.

Nothing serious here. Panik tweaked the ankle in Monday's Cactus League game. His absence is merely a precautionary measure.

Rangers manager Jeff Banister said that Ryan Rua had been awarded the starting left field job out of spring training.

Rua's spring numbers back it up, as he hit .302/.351/.509 with a homer, two triples and nine RBI during spring games prior to the final decision. With the starting job locked up, Rua is an interesting player for deeper AL-only drafts. He slashed .306/.378/.488 in the minors last season and also contributed at the major league level.
Mar 31 - 1:11 PM

Dodgers acquired INF/OF Elliott Johnson from the Rangers for cash considerations.

Johnson would have made $900,000 from the Rangers if he had made the team. Johnson's hit just .194/.350/.290 in 31 at-bats this spring. Those numbers aren't too far off of his career numbers, but he offers some speed and versatility.
Mar 31 - 1:02 PM

Rockies optioned 3B Charlie Culberson to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Culberson's chances of breaking camp with the big club were somewhat hampered by a bulging disk in his back. He missed a stretch from March 8 to March 25. Even had he been healthy, he was a long-shot to make the Opening Day roster. He'll serve as organizational depth for the Rockies.
Mar 31 - 12:56 PM

Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. said that Domonic Brown (achilles) would begin the season on the DL.

Brown was diagnosed with tendinitis of the left Achilles a little over a week ago and has been making slow progress toward recovery. This leaves the team in a state of flux, as their current outfield options to replace Brown are the likes of Jeff Francoeur and Darin Ruf. Brown's timetable for return has still not been set.
Mar 31 - 12:51 PM

Chris Tillman has been tagged as the Orioles' Opening Day starter.

No surprise here. The 26-year-old Tillman is Baltimore's ace and pitched to a 3.34 ERA over a career-high 207+ innings in 2014, marking the second-straight year he's gone over 200 IP. Over the last three seasons, he holds a 3.42 ERA and 1.195 WHIP.
