Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times thinks the Rays will attempt to trade Curt Casali.

They could also consider dealing Luke Maile following the signing of Derek Norris, but it appears Casali is more likely to be dealt. Jesus Sucre is expected to open the season along with Norris as the team's two catchers until Wilson Ramos (knee) is ready. Casali has hit 18 homers over 369 plate appearances over the last two seasons but has batted just .202/.282/.416 overall.

Ichiro Suzuki went 2-for-3 on Sunday and is 9-for-16 over his last five games.

Ichiro had been 3-for-22 this spring before his recent surge. He'll open up as the Marlins' fourth outfielder again. Ideally, he won't need to play as often as he did last year.

Corey Seager (oblique) could be held out of the exhibition Freeway Series with the Angels this weekend in order to get more at-bats in minor league games.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was quick to point out that it would have nothing to do with Seager's health but it simply a way for him to get more at-bats in order to knock the rust off. "He just needs to get his timing," Roberts said. Seager has been limited to just five Cactus League at-bats due to an oblique injury. The good news is that his oblique ailment seems like a non-issue at this point. Seager is fully expected to be ready on Opening Day.

Kolten Wong said Sunday that he would "100 percent" rather be traded than be platooned at second base.

It was one of a host of scathing comments from Wong in the wake of Cardinals manager Mike Matheny saying Saturday that the club would consider a platoon at second base. "I honestly don't give a (censored)," Wong said when asked about the team mulling over a platoon. Wong added that he doesn't want to be "wasting my time" with the Cards if they don't have faith in him. They're words Wong probably shouldn't have aired in public, but you can understand his frustration after the club essentially committed to him as the regular second baseman this winter. That said, Wong could make it all a moot point if he simply played better. He sports an underwhelming career .248/.309/.370 batting line and entered Sunday hitting just .182/.265/.250 this spring.

Pedro Baez (thumb) will face hitters on Monday.

It will be a nice step, but Baez still hasn't pitched in a game this spring due to a nagging right thumb injury. He's probably going to begin the season on the disabled list.

Jaff Decker (oblique) will play in a minor league game Sunday.

Decker hasn't played in a week due to a sore oblique. He's trying to win a bench spot but is running out of time to make a nice impression.

Khris Davis (quad) is playing in a minor league game Sunday.

Davis has dealt with a sore quad for a few days, but the A's have insisted that it's a minor injury. Assuming all goes well Sunday, he should be cleared to return to Cactus League games this week. Davis is coming off a breakout power season for Oakland that saw him pop 42 longballs.
Mar 26 - 1:23 PM

Ben Zobrist (neck) is aiming to return to the lineup on Monday or Tuesday.

Zobrist hasn't played in a week because of a stiff neck. The Cubs are probably just playing things cautiously here, as a veteran like Zobrist doesn't need a ton of spring training at-bats.
