Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Indians will "probably" discuss a contract extension with Jason Kipnis during spring training.

Hoynes adds that Kipnis is "open" to an extension. The Tribe's second baseman isn't eligible for arbitration until after the upcoming season, but it sounds like Cleveland wants to lock him up through his arbitration years and possibly into free agency. Kipnis, 26, is coming off a year where he batted .284/.366/.452 with 17 homers, 84 RBI and 30 stolen bases.

Casey Janssen has been shut down temporarily with renewed discomfort in his lower back.

Janssen threw a scoreless rehab inning on Tuesday but woke up the next day with a sore back. He has been on the disabled list since the end of spring training with a strained muscle in his lower back and abdomen. Sergio Santos remains the Blue Jays' closer.

Jose Reyes (hamstring) is now expected to rejoin the Blue Jays on Saturday in Cleveland.

The weather looks iffy for Friday's series-opener with the Indians, and the Jays don't want to risk Reyes returning to a cold and muddy infield. The 30-year-old shortstop left Toronto's series-opener on March 31 with hamstring inflammation. He did not suffer a strain.

Corey Hart is playing right field for the first time with the Mariners Thursday afternoon vs. the Rangers.

Hart missed the entire 2013 season after undergoing dual knee surgeries, so he has been limited to DH duties in his 10 starts so far with Seattle. The 32-year-old has displayed good power in the early going, boasting three home runs in 43 plate appearances.

Evan Gattis is not in the Braves' starting lineup for Thursday's series-finale against the Phillies.

Gerald Laird is starting behind the plate. Gattis, who's batting .375 with a 1.135 OPS and four home runs in 10 games this season, is simply getting a day of rest.

Lorenzo Cain left Wednesday night's game against the Astros with a Grade 1 groin strain.

That's the least severe type of strain, but Cain could still be looking at an extended absence. The 28-year-old outfielder was off to a decent start this season, boasting a .333 batting average and two steals in 12 games. Jarrod Dyson figures to get a boost in playing time and may be worth an add in fantasy leagues for his speed.

After leaving Wednesday's game in the seventh inning with a hand injury, Hanley Ramirez's X-rays came back negative.

Los Angeles collectively held its breath after Han-Ram was hit by a 90 mph Ryan Vogelsong fastball on the top of his left hand. The star shortstop spiked his helmet and jumped around in agony before exiting, with Justin Turner taking his spot. Consider Ramirez day-to-day.

Fernando Rodney blew his first save of the season and earned the loss, serving up two runs to the Rangers in the ninth inning as they walked off 3-2 winners on Wednesday.

Rodney, who had been 3-for-3 in save opportunities, appeared to have another easy night on his hands, getting the first two outs in the ninth. Then he walked Mitch Moreland, saw David Murphy reach on Brad Miller's throwing error, threw a wild pitch to allow the tying run to score, then gave up the winning run on Leonys Martin's walk-off single. Rodney always finds a way to make it interesting, but he has earned 85 saves and posted a 1.91 ERA over the last two seasons.

Leonys Martin went 2-for-4 with a triple and helped the Rangers walk off in the ninth inning with an RBI single to left-center in Wednesday's win against the Mariners.

Martin tripled and scored in the eighth inning to cut the Rangers' deficit to 2-1, then fueled the Fernando Rodney tire fire in the next inning, driving an outside fastball to the opposite field. Martin has been slow to get it going thus far, but the Rangers are hopeful Wednesday's performance spurs him.
Apr 16 - 10:57 PM

Jose Fernandez allowed three runs (none earned) in seven innings, taking home the no-decision as the Marlins lost to the Nationals on Wednesday night.

Fernandez allowed four hits, walked none, and struck out 10. The only blemish came on Jayson Werth's game-tying three-run home run in the sixth inning, which was set up by catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia's throwing error. As all three runs were unearned, Fernandez lowered his ERA to 2.66. He now has 33 strikeouts in 23 2/3 innings. Fernandez will face the Braves in his next start.
Apr 16 - 10:10 PM

Manny Machado (knee) ran the bases for the first time Wednesday with no problems.

Machado had been running sprints in the days prior, but Wednesday was the first day he ran the bases in his recovery from October knee surgery. He'll continue running the bases for the rest of the week. No indication was given as to when he'll be cleared to take part in extended spring training games, but it shouldn't be too long now.
Apr 16 - 9:51 PM

Julio Teheran ran roughshod over the Phillies' offense in Wednesday's start, shutting them out in a complete game effort to earn the win.

Teheran allowed three hits (all singles), walked none, and struck out four. The Phillies made weak contact against him all night long, only twice enjoying the sight of a runner in scoring position. Teheran has allowed two or fewer earned runs in each of his first four starts of the season, picking up where he left off in 2013. He'll face the Marlins next.
