Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York reports that the Yankees are listening to offers on Curtis Granderson.

Phil Hughes and Ivan Nova are also reportedly being shopped. The Yankees are in serious cost-cutting mode with the hope of scooting comfortably under the luxury tax threshold prior to the start of the 2014 season. Granderson, 31, batted .232/.319/.492 with 43 home runs and 106 RBI in 160 games this summer for New York. He's owed a $15 million salary in 2013.

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 and play 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 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. It was ultimately half of Chapman's suspension. 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.

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.
Mar 29 - 12:16 PM

Drew Smyly won't make his scheduled appearance on Friday due to an unspecified arm issue.

That's not what you want to hear with the season rapidly approaching. Mariners manager Scott Servais is waiting for more information on the situation, but he noted that Smyly "didn't feel great" and had a "soggy arm" coming out of his most recent bullpen session. It's worth noting that he missed a large chunk of the 2015 season due to a labrum tear. There should be more clarity on the situation soon.
Mar 29 - 11:32 AM

Carlos Gomez (shoulder) has returned to the Rangers' lineup on Wednesday.

Gomez jammed his left shoulder on a slide into third base last Tuesday, but he's feeling better now. The 31-year-old outfielder finished strong last season and will serve as the Rangers' regular center fielder in 2017.
Mar 29 - 11:11 AM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch announced Wednesday that Alex Bregman will hit second to begin the year.

That's music to fantasy owners' ears. While Bregman started out slow after his call-up last year, he turned things around in dramatic fashion down the stretch and finished with a .791 OPS. He has serious breakout potential in 2017. The Astros are going with George Springer, Bregman, Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, and Carlos Beltran with the top five spots in the order.

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the announcement of Jeurys Familia's domestic violence suspension is expected on Wednesday.

The timing makes sense, as Familia reportedly traveled to New York earlier this week to meet with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred. While nothing is official yet, Billy Witz of the New York Times reported Monday that the suspension is "almost certain" to be lighter than the 30-game suspension Aroldis Chapman received one year ago. The Mets are expecting Addison Reed to fill in at closer while Familia serves his suspension.
Mar 29 - 8:53 AM

Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports that the Tigers are willing to eat the entirety of Mike Pelfrey's $8 million salary in order to move him in a trade.

Pelfrey never had a real shot at a rotation spot this spring, and he's struggled with a 7.36 ERA. It appears the Tigers would rather just free up the roster spot than try him out in long relief. While Detroit might be trying to deal him, he'll probably just wind up being released. Pelfrey held a 5.07 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in 2016.
