Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports that the Yankees have re-signed Hiroki Kuroda to a one-year, $15 million contract.

He'll also have a chance to earn a little less than $1 million in performance-based incentives. Kuroda could have scored a multi-year deal from another team, but he preferred to sign for just one year so that he could possibly return to Japan after next season. The Yankees will now focus their attention on re-signing Andy Pettitte.

Nolan Arenado smashed a two-run homer in the top of the first inning Sunday as the Rockies beat the Padres 4-1 in the Cactus League.

Arenado mostly struggled at the plate for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic, but he doubled in his first game back with the Rockies on Friday and the star third baseman took Padres starter Jarred Cosart deep on Sunday. Arenado, 25, should be a top-seven pick in most standard fantasy leagues leading into the 2017 regular season.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after Sunday's Cactus League game that Scott Kazmir (hip) will not open the season in the starting rotation.

Kazmir struggled again in Sunday's start against the Rangers and continues to show severely diminished fastball velocity. The veteran southpaw admitted after the start that he's still bothered by his hip issue and doesn't feel like he has his lower half. Expect him to begin the season on the disabled list.

Jabari Blash finished 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, and four RBI in the Padres' 9-4 win over a Cubs split-squad on Sunday.

Blash singled and scored in the first inning, led off the third inning with a ground-rule double, and then slugged a grand slam in the top of the fourth off Cubs prospect Jonathan Martinez. Blash boasts a 1.056 OPS with six home runs and 17 RBI in 23 games this spring. He's played his way into a share of the left field job in San Diego.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times expects Corey Dickerson to begin the season as the Rays' leadoff hitter against right-handers.

Topkin projects Kevin Kiermaier to remain in the No. 2 spot and Dickerson to precede him. It's obviously very favorable news for Dickerson for fantasy purposes, as he slugged 22 home runs against righties last season and is a career .288/.335/.552 hitter against them. Dickerson entered Grapefruit League play on Sunday batting .367/.392/.633 with four longballs this spring.

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.

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.

Raisel Iglesias (elbow, hips) played catch Saturday and is expected to resume throwing off a mound soon.

Iglesias fell in the shower a few weeks ago and has dealt with a sore pitching elbow and hips since, but he's making nice progress. Reds manager Bryan Price indicated Sunday that the reliever has a shot to be ready for Opening Day. Iglesias is first in line for saves if healthy, although the Reds aren't planning to name a set closer.

Reds manager Bryan Price said Sunday that it's very unlikely Devin Mesoraco (hip, shoulder) will be ready for Opening Day.

That has been the expectation for a while now, as Mesoraco simply hasn't gotten enough work this spring with just 14 at-bats and zero full games under his belt. He would seem to have a chance to be ready sometime in April, although the Reds will ease him into action once he's on the active roster. Cincy is slated to open the year with Tucker Barnhart and Rule 5 pick Stuart Turner at catcher.

Yankees released LHP Jon Niese.

Niese got a late start to spring training while working his way back from knee surgery, which kept him from ever being under real consideration for one of the open spots in the Yankees' rotation. The club is open to the left-hander sticking around as depth at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre as he builds up stamina, although it's unclear whether Niese is considering that.

Eduardo Nunez (shoulder) is back in the Giants' lineup Sunday.

Nunez has been dealing with soreness in his right shoulder all camp and had a cortisone shot Wednesday. He's in the designated hitter spot Sunday but hopefully should be ready to resume third base duties soon. Nunez is optimistic he'll be ready to go on Opening Day, but it probably can't be considered a given.
Mar 26 - 11:32 AM

Alex Cobb was scratched from a scheduled start in a minor league game Sunday due to lower back tightness.

It's obviously not ideal this close to Opening Day, although Cobb doesn't think it will affect his ability to start the third game of the season as scheduled. Cobb holds a 3.95 ERA over four starts this spring.
