Adam Wainwright will start for the Cardinals in Game 1 of the NLDS against the Nationals.

He'll be followed by Jaime Garcia in Game 2 at home, then Chris Carpenter for Game 3 in Washington. If the series requires a fourth game, Kyle Lohse would get the call. Wainwright would go again if a fifth game is necessary.

Steven Matz (elbow) won't be ready for the start of the season.

That's the way it was already trending, but now it's official. Matz has resumed throwing after being scratched from his final Grapefruit League start, but he was sent for an MRI on Wednesday as a follow-up. There could be good news in there, but either way, he won't be ready for his first turn through the rotation. The Mets have yet to make a final decision between Seth Lugo and Zack Wheeler for the fifth spot. Odds are that Lugo gets the nod.

According to J.J. Bailey of KMOV, tests indicate that Randal Grichuk didn't suffer a break in his right hand.

Grichuk was hit in the right hand by a pitch on Wednesday, but the Cardinals don't sound overly concerned. He didn't receive an X-ray, but he'll be sent for one in the event that his hand remains an issue on Thursday.

Gregory Polanco (shoulder) saw 10 at-bats on the minor league side at Pirate City on Wednesday.

He also threw from a distance of 90 feet. It's good news for Polanco, who has been dealing with discomfort in his left shoulder over the past few days. He's slated to play in a game on Friday, so he's trending in the right direction leading into Opening Day.

Adrian Beltre (calf) will be re-evaluated over the weekend.

Beltre came down with some tightness in his right calf muscle on Monday, though an MRI showed it wasn't severe. While he initially expressed confidence about his readiness for Opening Day, he's running out of time to prove it. The disabled list could eventually be an option if he doesn't show enough progress this weekend.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday that Corey Seager (oblique) is expected to start in Saturday's exhibition game against the Angels.

Seager hasn’t played in a major league game since March 3 due to an oblique issue, but he has been getting work on the minor league side in recent days. He's slated to play in another minor league game on Wednesday. The Dodgers have been careful with their prized shortstop, but all signs are pointing to him being ready for the opener.

Carter Capps (elbow) will begin the season on the 10-day disabled list.

Capps is making his way back from Tommy John surgery and was shaky in his Cactus League debut on Monday, so it doesn't make sense to push things. He could be ready relatively soon.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Pirates have placed Jared Hughes on release waivers.

Hughes has really struggled this spring, allowing 15 runs (12 earned) on 16 hits and four walks over 9 1/3 innings. The 31-year-old has compiled a 2.41 ERA over the past three seasons and induces plenty of ground balls, but he has averaged just 5.0 K/9 in that time. He's under contract for $2.825 million this season.

Addison Russell (back) said Wednesday that he feels 100 percent.

Russell hasn't played in a week due to back soreness and isn't ready to return to the lineup just yet, but he's expected to do some hitting in the cage on Wednesday before returning on Thursday. Barring a setback, he's still on track to be ready for the season.

Jeurys Familia has been suspended 15 games for violating MLB's joint domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse policy

This confirms a report from Billy Witz of the New York Times. The suspension is for Familia's arrest on October 31 for simple assault of his wife, Bianca Rivas. The charge was dismissed in December. The original expectation was that Familia would receive a suspension in line with Aroldis Chapman's 30-game domestic violence ban last year, but recent reports indicated that the suspension was expected to be lighter. "The evidence reviewed by my office does not support a determination that Mr. Familia physically assaulted his wife, or threatened her or others with physical force or harm, on Oct. 31, 2016. Nevertheless, I have concluded that Mr. Familia's overall conduct that night was inappropriate, violated the policy, and warrants discipline," MLB commissioner Rob Manfred wrote in a statement. Familia could be eligible to rejoin the Mets as soon as April 20. Addison Reed will fill in at closer for a couple of weeks.

Lonnie Chisenhall (shoulder) will begin the season on the 10-day disabled list.

Chisenhall injured his right shoulder when he collided with the outfield wall last Friday and needs some extra time to heal. The Indians are optimistic that he could be ready as soon as the team's first homestand. With Chisenhall sidelined, Abraham Almonte will make the Opening Day roster.
Mar 29 - 12:27 PM

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus confirmed Wednesday that Matt Boyd has won a rotation spot.

This confirms what was reported on Tuesday night. Boyd earned the job after posting a a 2.49 ERA and 21/0 K/BB ratio across 21 2/3 innings during Grapefruit League action. Anibal Sanchez has made some strides recently, but he's set to begin the year in the bullpen.
