Mike Trout (hamstring) remained out of the Angels' lineup Tuesday.

It's the second straight game he's missed after exiting Sunday's game with tightness in his right hamstring. Trout is feeling better, though, and will try to run the bases before Tuesday's game. The Angels are using an outfield of J.B. Shuck, Peter Bourjos and Kole Calhoun Tuesday.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said he hasn't considered placing Addison Russell (back) on the disabled list.

"I'm certain he's going to be fine," said Maddon. Russell has missed the past week with back soreness but is on the mend and could return to game action before the end of spring training. Among major league shortstops, only Carlos Correa drove in more runs than Russell last season.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports expects Yadier Molina's extension with the Cardinals to be for three years and around $45-55 million.

The two sides have been making "progress" on a new deal and it looks like this could come together quickly. Per Rosenthal, Molina is reluctant to uproot his family and prefers to finish out his career in St. Louis. The implication is that Molina would take less than his market value to remain a Cardinal. He's due $14 million this year and $15 million in 2018 if the Cardinals pick up his club option.

Ervin Santana has been announced as the Twins' Opening Day starter.

As expected. Santana will get the ball at home against Kansas City on April 3. He'll be followed in the rotation by Hector Santiago and Kyle Gibson. Last year Santana was a bright spot in an otherwise dreary season for the Twins, contributing a 3.38 ERA over 30 starts.

A.J. Pierzynski is joining Fox Sports as a full-time analyst.

That means Pierzynski's 19-year career in the big leagues is officially over. The 40-year-old had a tendency to rub people the wrong way with his brash personality (a fact he readily admits) but was a productive hitter throughout his career, batting .280 with 188 homers over 7,290 major league at-bats for seven different clubs. Pierzynski made two All-Star appearances and won a World Series with the White Sox in 2005. He's been a part of Fox's postseason coverage for several years.

Julio Urias will not be on the Dodgers' Opening Day roster.

Urias is starting on Tuesday and will remain with the Dodgers for their upcoming freeway series against the Angeles. The young left-hander will bide his time in the minors until a spot opens up for him in the starting rotation. It's possible he could open the year in extended spring training after logging just 5 2/3 innings in the Cactus League this spring.

Reds claimed 2B Scooter Gennett off waivers from the Brewers.

The Brewers decided they didn't need Gennett anymore with Jonathan Villar moving to second base full time this year. The 26-year-old will give the Reds some infield depth behind starters Zack Cozart, Eugenio Suarez and Jose Peraza and could see time in the outfield as well. Gennett set career-highs with 14 homers, 56 RBI and eight steals last season.

Jhoulys Chacin will start Opening Day for the Padres.

Well, that is something. The Padres could have one of the worst rotations we've seen in a long time, so Chacin is the best option on the board. He'll be followed by Clayton Richard and Jered Weaver. The Padres have yet to make a final decision beyond that, but we will likely see plenty of names shuffled in and out all year.

Carlos Rodon (biceps) was diagnosed with bursitis after an MRI showed no structural damage.

The initial MRI on Rodon's left biceps showed no structural damage, so this test confirms the original diagnosis. The plan calls for him to go on a throwing program for the next two weeks before being re-evaluated. He'll go on the disabled list, but it's possible he could be ready at some point in the early part of the year.

Indians signed INF/OF Jose Ramirez to a five-year, $26 million extension.

The agreement was reported late last week and it's now official. The extension includes two club options at $11 million (2022) and $13 million (2023), so the deal could max out at $50 million. Ramirez is coming off a breakout 2016 where he batted .312/.363/.462 with 11 homers, 76 RBI and 22 stolen bases over 152 games.

Carlos Gomez (shoulder) expects to return to Cactus League action on Wednesday.

Gomez jammed his left shoulder a week ago, but he resumed swinging bat on Sunday and is feeling closer to normal. Barring any setbacks, he should be good to go for Opening Day.

Addison Russell (back) hopes to return to Cactus League action on Wednesday.

Russell has been out of action since last Wednesday due to back soreness. He doesn't expect to require a stint on the disabled list, but the situation will warrant monitoring if he isn't ready Wednesday.
