Neftali Feliz (shoulder) has been scratched from his next scheduled start on Monday.

This shouldn't come as a big surprise. Feliz threw long-toss on Friday without any issues, but the Rangers don't want to take any chances. The 23-year-old right-hander hasn't been ruled out for the start of the season, but it all depends on when he'll be cleared to pitch in a game again. Scott Feldman is expected to start in his place Monday and could replace him in the rotation if he begins the year on the disabled list.

David Dahl (back) is expected to miss a few days.

Dahl was a late scratch from Monday's lineup due to a sore back, but Rockies manager Bud Black insists that it's not a major concern. The 22-year-old impressed by hitting .315/.359/.500 over 63 games as a rookie last season and projects to begin the year as the Rockies' regular left fielder.

Sam Dyson suffered a sprained right wrist in a fall on Friday.

Dyson suffered the injury during a PRP drill. He was able to pitch on Saturday, but he'll be limited to playing catch on Tuesday. An MRI came back negative and Rangers manager Jeff Banister said that all signs are that the injury is minor, but suddenly his status for the upcoming World Baseball Classic is in question.

Josh Donaldson (calf) took outdoor batting practice Tuesday without incident.

It was his first time taking BP since straining his right calf during the Jays' first team workout of the spring. The next step calls for him to resume running. Donaldson says he feels better every day, so the expectation remains that he'll have enough time to get ready for Opening Day.

Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports that the Nationals have signed Joe Blanton to a one-year contract.

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, Blanton will receive a $4 million salary and will have the chance to make an additional $1 million in performance bonuses. Blanton is expected to be in Nationals' camp on Tuesday, most likely to take his physical with the club. The veteran right-hander found an underwhelming market over the winter despite putting up an excellent 2.48 ERA and 80/26 K/BB ratio over 80 innings out of the Dodgers' bullpen last season. The back-end of the Nationals' bullpen is unsettled at the moment, but Blanton figures to pitch in a set-up role.

David Wright won't throw for "a couple weeks" after being diagnosed with a right shoulder impingement.

Uh oh. Wright has been limited to DH duty in the early part of the Grapefruit League schedule as he makes his way back from neck surgery, but he apparently felt shoulder soreness in some of his private throwing sessions, so the Mets sent him to New York to get checked out. General manager Sandy Alderson is calling him "questionable" for Opening Day, but they clearly can't count on him avoiding further setbacks. Jose Reyes is poised to have a major role in this lineup this season.

Dee Gordon (pink eye) will make his spring debut Tuesday against the Mets.

Gordon was originally scheduled to make his Grapefruit League debut on Saturday, but he was sent home due to pink eye. Fortunately, it didn't take him long to get back to normal. The 28-year-old should come at a discount in fantasy drafts this year after his disappointing 2016, but his speed remains a game-changer.

Jean Segura went 3-for-3 with a home run and three RBI on Monday versus the Royals.

He delivered a run-scoring double in the first inning and followed that with the two-run longball in the second frame. He was acquired by the Mariners in the Taijuan Walker trade with Arizona back in November. He had an excellent season in 2016 with a .319 batting average, 20 home runs, 102 runs scored and 33 stolen bases. He also had a big year in 2013 but his other three seasons were woeful. He has been batting second in the Mariners' order so far this spring and will be their everyday shortstop.

Twins manager Paul Molitor indicated Monday that Byron Buxton could hit his way into the leadoff spot this spring.

It came up when Molitor was asked where Joe Mauer would bat this season. "How Buxton comes along, how that’s going to affect (Brian) Dozier in some regard, there’s just a trickle-down there in where people could go," Molitor said. "I still like Joe up there somewhere, against right-handed pitching in particular." Buxton has spent nearly all of his time with the Twins at the bottom of the batting order, although he did hit leadoff in last year's season finale (he homered and doubled). The former top prospect finished with a .287/.357/.653 line and nine homers last September and certainly has breakout potential in 2017. Hitting leadoff would obviously boost his fantasy appeal, and he could wind up there eventually even if he starts the year hitting low in the order.

Josh Hamilton underwent surgery Monday to repair torn cartilage in his left knee.

That is the fourth procedure on Hamilton's left knee over the last 15 months. He will go through six weeks of rest and rehab before he can resume running. The veteran slugger shouldn't be counted on for much in 2017, and it's very possible that his days as a major leaguer are over. Hamilton signed a minor league contract with Texas in mid-January. He turns 36 years old in May.

Tim Tebow hit nine home runs over a span of four batting practice rounds Monday during his first workout at Mets camp.

They were all to either left field or right-center, per Mark Saxon of ESPN.com. It was an impressive power show from Tebow -- who reworked his swing over the winter between college football broadcasting duties -- but it's still difficult to see this baseball experiment progressing beyond Low-A ball. Tebow, 29, batted .194/.296/.242 with 20 strikeouts over 62 at-bats in the 2016 Arizona Fall League.

Giants GM Bobby Evans said Monday that he expects Johnny Cueto to arrive in camp later this week.

Evans told reporters that Cueto has nearly settled the visa/passport issues that will allow his ill father to travel with him from the Dominican Republic to where the Giants train in Arizona. It's not clear whether Cueto is still going to pitch for Team Dominica in the first round of the World Baseball Classic. We'd probably bet against it at this point.
