Mariners signed RHP Kameron Loe to a minor league contract with a spring training invite.

He still needs to pass a physical. Loe had a 4.61 ERA over 70 appearances with the Brewers last season and will try to win a bullpen spot this spring.

Mookie Betts went 2-for-3 and scored a pair of runs to lead the Red Sox over the Twins 8-7 on Saturday.

One of the hits was a double. The superstar hit third in the lineup and played right field. He put up a monster fantasy line of .318/.363/.534 with 31 home runs, 122 runs scored, 113 RBI and 26 stolen bases last year. He is worth a first-round draft pick in all fantasy formats.

Christian Yelich hit a two-run bomb and drew a walk as the Marlins beat the Cardinals 8-7 on Saturday.

He took Cardinals' closer Seung Hwan Oh deep with one runner aboard in the third inning. Yelich just turned 25 years old and has already been a strong major league hitter for four years. He broke out with 21 home runs last year to go with 98 RBI and a .298 batting average.

Justin Verlander gave up a hit and a walk but did not allow a run in his two innings versus the Astros on Saturday.

He struck out a pair in his first start of the spring. After a down season in 2015, he bounced back last year with a 3.04 ERA and 16-9 record. His 10.04 strikeouts per nine innings was the second-best mark of his career. He doesn't throw as hard as he used to but he remains one of the best pitchers in the American League.

Dustin Pedroia will continue to hit leadoff for the Red Sox.

Mookie Betts started last season as Boston's leadoff hitter but was eventually moved down in the order so the Red Sox could better utilize his power. Pedroia made a smooth transition to the leadoff spot, slashing .362/.394/.457 over 199 at-bats. Second base is fairly deep this season but the 33-year-old remains an excellent fantasy option in all formats.

Bryce Harper went 2-for-2 with a home run against the Mets on Saturday.

The star right-fielder will try to bounce back from an injury-plagued 2016 season in which he hit just 24 home runs with a .243 batting average. He had a season for the ages in 2015 -- batting .330/.460/.649 with 42 home runs, 118 runs and 99 RBI.

Gerrit Cole has been announced as the Pirates' Opening Day starter.

He'll toe the rubber against the Red Sox at Fenway Park on April 3. This marks Cole's first career Opening Day start. Cole was an absolute stud in 2015 before injuries caused him to unravel last season. He's a strong bounce-back candidate.
Feb 25 - 4:30 PM

Michael Bourn is expected to miss the next four weeks due to a broken ring finger on his right hand.

Bourn just re-signed with the O's this week and was expected to compete for a reserve outfielder role. He should still have enough time to get ready for the regular season, but this could impact his chances to crack the Opening Day roster.
Feb 25 - 12:46 PM

Lucas Duda is not in the Mets starting lineup on Saturday due to continued back stiffness.

Duda missed a large portion of the 2016 due to back stiffness and it's a discouraging development that he's continuing to deal with the issue after having an entire offseason to rest and rehab. The 31-year-old hit just .229/.302/.412 with seven homers and 23 RBI in 153 at-bats in 2016. The more time that he misses, the greater the opportunity for Michael Conforto to seize at-bats, either at first base or in right field with Jay Bruce manning first.
Feb 25 - 10:48 AM

J.D. Martinez was scratched from the Tigers' starting lineup on Saturday due to tightness in his pectoral muscle.

It doesn't sound as though it's anything serious, but at this point in the spring there's no reason to take any chances. Mikie Mahtook will slide into the starting lineup in his place, with Juan Perez shifting over to right field.

Lewis Brinson started his spring off with a bang, blasting a pair of home runs as the Brewers clobbered University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee 11-0 in exhibition play on Friday.

Brinson started the game with a solo home run then added on a three-run bomb in the fourth inning. Considered the club's center fielder of the future, the 22-year-old should debut with the Brewers at some point in 2017. His combination of power and speed makes him an interesting flyer in the final rounds of NL-only and deeper mixed league drafts.

Cubs signed RHP Pedro Strop to a one-year, $5.85 million contract extension with a $6.25 million club option for 2019.

The two sides avoided arbitration earlier this month with a one-year, $5.5 million contract, and they've now tacked on one and potentially two more years. Strop had been slated to hit free agency next winter. The 31-year-old has been excellent since arriving in Chicago at the 2013 trade deadline, posting a 2.68 ERA with 254 strikeouts across 211 1/3 relief innings. He'll again be a setup man for the Cubs in 2017.
