Trevor Crowe (shoulder) began a minor league rehab assignment Thursday with the GCL Astros.

Crowe hasn't played since June 20 due to a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder. The 29-year-old should be back at some point in August if all goes well.

Bud Norris and seven Angels' relievers combined to no-hit the Mariners in Cactus League play on Friday.

Norris worked two perfect innings to start the game, striking out two in the process. He was followed by Jose Alvarez, Cam Bedrosian, Andrew Bailey, Austin Adams, Drew Gagnon, Justin Anderson and Abel De Los Santos who each worked no-hit innings. Norris now owns a 3.48 ERA on the spring and could conceivably crack the Opening Day roster.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Indians and Jose Ramrirez have reached an agreement on a four-year, $26 million contract extension.

The deal will also include two club options at $11 million and $13 million respectively. In total, the deal could be worth more than $50 million over the six years and keep Ramirez in Cleveland through the 2023 season. Ramirez hit .312/.363/.462 with 11 homers, 76 RBI and 22 swipes during a breakout 2016 campaign.

Carlos Carrasco allowed one hit and walked a pair over three scoreless innings against the Cubs on Friday.

It was his first Cactus League appearance since he was shelled for eight runs over 1 2/3 innings against the White Sox back on March 13. He had some swelling in his elbow after that, but everything appears on track now. It’s unclear when he’ll make his first start during the regular season, but the Indians could delay his debut until they need a fifth starter on April 15. We should have a better idea about the schedule soon.

Jon Gray exited his start against the Giants on Friday with left foot soreness.

The Rockies' Root Sports broadcast referred to the injury as "very, very mild," so it looks like the club dodged a bullet here. They were certainly due a break when it comes to injuries. Gray should probably be OK to make his next spring start.

Lonnie Chisenhall was pulled from Friday's game against the Cubs with a right shoulder injury.

Chisenhall was hurt when he collided with the outfield wall while trying to chase down a Munenori Kawasaki triple. The Indians are listing him as day-to-day right now, but that might not necessarily mean much until he's evaluated further. They should have more to say after the game is over.

J.D. Martinez will be shut down for 3-4 weeks after being diagnosed with a sprained Lisfranc ligament in his right foot.

Martinez doesn't need surgery, but he'll be in a cast for 7-10 days and won't be ready for baseball activities again until well into April. It will obviously be quite a while after that before he's ready to play in a major league game. Steven Moya is likely to handle right field while Martinez is on the shelf.

The Marlins have named Edinson Volquez their Opening Day starter.

He'll be followed by Dan Straily, Tom Koehler and Wei-Yin Chen. Adam Conley will surely be the fifth starter, but the Marlins surprisingly didn't list him among the starting five yet. It will be the fifth Opening Day start of Volquez's career.

Yahoo Sports' Tim Brown reports that Derek Norris is signing with the Rays.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times says it will be a straight one-year contract, although Norris is arbitration-eligible in 2018 so the Rays will have two years of control. Robert Murray of FanRag Sports hears that it came down the Rays and Blue Jays and Norris picked the smaller contract because he thinks he'll have a better chance at playing time in Tampa. He should play pretty regularly with the Rays until Wilson Ramos (knee) is ready for catching duties, which probably won't be for a few months into the season. Norris has solid pop for a catcher but is coming off a season where he put up a hideous .186/.255/.328 batting line.

Will Smith will undergo Tommy John surgery on his left elbow next week.

A pair of doctors recommended it, and Smith has decided to go under the knife now rather than risk a failed rehab attempt that could delay his start to 2018. Dr. Neal ElAttrache will perform the operation in Los Angeles. Smith is under team control through 2019.
Mar 24 - 2:25 PM

Jarrod Dyson remains out of game action due to soreness in his legs.

He's been dealing with fatigue in his legs for a week now, although the Mariners think he'll be ready to play by Sunday. It doesn't sound like a big deal but is obviously worth tracking given how much of Dyson's value is derived from his legs. For what it's worth, the speedster is 5-for-5 on stolen base attempts this spring.
Mar 24 - 2:02 PM

Jose Quintana has been named the White Sox' Opening Day starter.

That's assuming he's not traded before then. Quintana was the obvious choice to take the ball in the opener, of course, following the team's offseason trade of Chris Sale. The left-hander boasts a 3.35 ERA over the last four seasons and has made at least 32 starts each of those years.
