Nationals signed LHP Will Ohman to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Ohman, 35, posted an ugly 6.41 ERA over 32 appearances for the White Sox last season, but he's held left-handed batters to a .210/.294/.348 batting line during his career. The Nats have no left-handers that are a guarantee to make the Opening Day bullpen, so it's a good spot for the veteran southpaw.

Collin McHugh said he's going through a "general dead arm" phase.

McHugh has not yet faced live hitters, but he told reporters Monday that he's confident he'll be ready for the beginning of the 2017 regular season. It's something to watch. McHugh, 29, struggled to a 4.34 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 33 starts last year with Houston.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Adrian Gonzalez (elbow) could resume swinging off a tee in the next few days.

Gonzalez showed up to Dodgers camp with a case of tennis elbow and has been easing into baseball activities. He said last week that he is already pain-free, but the veteran first baseman might not appear in a Cactus League game before he has to report to duty for Team Mexico in the World Baseball Classic.

Blue Jays GM Ross Atkins reiterated Monday that Josh Donaldson (calf) is expected to be ready for Opening Day.

Donaldson strained his right calf during the Blue Jays' first team workout of the spring, but he's been taking swings in the cage for the last few days and is apparently close to resuming full baseball activities. "We anticipate no problems at all in his recovery," Atkins told reporters Monday morning in Dunedin, Florida.

Adrian Beltre (calf) said Monday that he is unsure about his status for the World Baseball Classic.

Beltre suffered a Grade 1 strain of his left calf shortly after arriving at Rangers camp and he still hasn't tried to run at full speed. The Dominican third baseman will have to make a decision about the first round of the WBC by Thursday. Texas' medical staff would probably prefer he remain in Arizona all spring.

Anthony DeSclafani (elbow) has been scratched from his scheduled Cactus League start Tuesday against the White Sox.

DeSclafani felt some tenderness in his right elbow after a recent live batting practice session, so the Reds will play it safe and push him back. It was supposed to be his Cactus League debut. Obviously this is something that will warrant close monitoring, though manager Bryan Price told reporters Monday morning that he doesn't believe it's anything serious.

Aaron Nola (elbow) is scheduled to make his Grapefruit League debut Thursday against the Blue Jays.

It will be his first live appearance since last July 28. Nola got off to a terrific start in 2016 before being diagnosed with a low-grade sprain of the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow and a flexor sprain in his forearm. The young right-hander says he feels 100 percent now.

Hanley Ramirez is dealing with some minor shoulder soreness.

The soreness affects his throwing ability, which is why he has only played DH (and not first base) so far in Grapefruit League games. DH is where he will get most of his starts this year anyway, assuming all goes according to plan. Hanley holds a shiny .331/.381/.634 career batting line in that role.

Kolten Wong (shoulder) is starting at second base and batting leadoff in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox.

It will be the first live action of the spring for Wong, who's been slowed in Cardinals camp by some lingering right shoulder inflammation. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny insisted to reporters Sunday that the shoulder discomfort is not a big concern, but we'll continue to monitor the situation closely. Wong has dealt with shoulder problems before.

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Nationals have expressed interest in free agent Angel Pagan.

But only if it's going to be a non-guaranteed minor league deal, per Rosenthal's sources. Pagan has struggled to attract meaningful interest on the open market as a 35-year-old outfielder with durability issues. He could back up new center fielder Adam Eaton in Washington. Michael Taylor would probably then open the season at Triple-A.

Yu Darvish tossed 1 2/3 scoreless frames in his first spring start Sunday versus the Royals.

Darvish yielded just one hit, and it was a two-out bunt single in the first inning by Raul Mondesi. He walked two but struck out two in the steady afternoon outing. The 30-year-old right-hander should be ready to return to fantasy-ace status in his first full season back from Tommy John surgery. He registered a 3.41 ERA, 1.116 WHIP, and 132/31 K/BB ratio over 100 1/3 innings (17 starts) for the Rangers in 2016.

Rich Hill went two hitless innings in his first Cactus League start Sunday versus the Brewers.

Hill issued a leadoff walk to Jonathan Villar in the bottom of the first inning, but he promptly picked off the Milwaukee speedster and didn't allow a baserunner the rest of the way. Hill struck out two -- back-to-back in the second inning -- during his sharp spring debut. The veteran left-hander re-upped with the Dodgers in early December on a three-year, $48 million free agent deal.
