A CT scan on Dan Jennings' head came back negative.

Great news. Not surprisingly, he has been diagnosed with a concussion and will remain in the hospital overnight for observation. Jennings will undoubtedly be placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list prior to Friday's game.

Yankees signed LHP Jon Niese to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Niese will get a look as both a starter and reliever in spring camp. The club had been in the market for a left-handed setup man, but found the cost of Jerry Blevins and Boone Logan to be too prohibitive.

Orioles acquired LHP Vidal Nuno from the Dodgers for RHP Ryan Moseley.

The 29-year-old southpaw has now been traded four times in the past three years. Nuno compiled a 3.53 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 7.8 K/9 over 58 2/3 innings primarily out of the bullpen for the Mariners in 2016. He'll add valuable depth to the Orioles with his ability to both start and pitch effectively out of the bullpen.

Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports that the Mets and Neil Walker's agent have discussed a contract extension that would run through 2019 and would be worth "north of $40 million."

Walker accepted the club's $17.2 million qualifying offer in November, but the two sides are interested in ripping up that deal and installing a new three-year pact. General manager Sandy Alderson said Sunday that he talked to Walker's agent on Saturday and planned to discuss things with the player himself soon. Walker, 31, hit 23 homers with an .823 OPS in 113 games last season in his first year in New York before undergoing back surgery.

Eric Gagne told MLB.com's Ken Gurnick that he's considering making a comeback.

Gagne is now 41 and hasn't pitched in the majors since 2008 or even been in a spring training camp since 2010. However, he's been throwing bullpen sessions as he prepares to pitch for Canada in the World Baseball Classic and says he's getting his fastball into the 90s and also featuring his trademark changeup. "I feel great. It's almost scary," Gagne said. The righty has had throwing sessions with the Padres and Diamondbacks. Obviously, it's a huge long shot that Gagne pitches again in the majors, let alone does it effectively. However, it will be something fun to track this spring.

Zack Wheeler (elbow) threw a 21-pitch bullpen session on Sunday.

Wheeler had some tenderness in his pitching elbow during a 'pen session last week, but he got through Sunday's session with no issues. It's obviously encouraging, but the righty isn't out of the woods yet after all of his arm problems the last two seasons. If he can stay healthy, Wheeler stands a good chance at capturing the final spot in the Mets' rotation.

Padres signed RHP Jered Weaver to a one-year, $3 million contract.

The deal was first reported on Saturday and is now official. Weaver's velocity and results have tumbled in the wrong direction the last few years, as he posted a 5.06 ERA in 2016 while his fastball routinely sat in the low- to mid-80s. However, the Padres' projected rotation right now is laughably bad to the point that the veteran right-hander might be the favorite to start for them on Opening Day. Weaver's days as a fantasy contributor are surely over.

Diamondbacks signed LHP Jorge De La Rosa to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic says that De La Rosa will make $2.25 million if in the majors and will compete for a spot in the D'Backs Opening Day bullpen. Just 12 of the left-hander's 235 appearances since 2007 have come as a reliever, but it's probably De La Rosa's best role at this point. The southpaw put up a 5.51 ERA across 134 innings for the Rockies last season and will turn 36 in April.

Josh Donaldson (calf) was walking around on crutches Sunday and is expected to be sidelined for 2-3 weeks.

Donaldson suffered a strained right calf while running on Friday. He should be fine for Opening Day as long as he can avoid a setback, but the Blue Jays will obviously take a cautious approach with their star third baseman. Donaldson has played at least 155 games each of the last four seasons.
Feb 19 - 11:54 AM

David Wright (neck) played catch indoors on Sunday.

He didn't play catch outside with the rest of his Mets teammates, but it was the first time Wright has done any throwing since last June's cervical discectomy and fusion surgery. The club will continue to bring the veteran third baseman along slowly this spring, as Wright's participation in Grapefruit League games figures to be fairly limited. He's obviously a major health question mark going into 2017.

Rockies manager Bud Black wants Charlie Blackmon to run more this season.

Blackmon fell back to 17 stolen bases in 2016 after swiping 43 in 2015, with Black indicating that the drop was due in part to the outfielder's legs not feeling 100 percent. "Charlie is dangerous in (the batter’s) box and became a real threat, each and every time he got in the box or when he got on first base (in 2015)," Black said. "We’ve got to get back to that. We’ve talked about that a little bit. Charlie was a little bit banged up last year. He was able to play, but I don’t think his legs felt great." Blackmon dealt with separate toe issues on two occasions in 2016, so perhaps that's what Black is referring to. Regardless, it's encouraging from a fantasy perspective to hear that Blackmon might be in line to bounce back from a steals standpoint in 2017.

Manager Terry Francona confirmed Cody Allen will close for the Indians in 2017.

"Cody is our closer," said Francona on Saturday, ending the debate once and for all. Just as he did last season, Allen will work the ninth inning with stud left-hander Andrew Miller serving as a jack-of-all trades. Allen and Miller were lights out in the playoffs last fall, combining for a 0.82 ERA over 33 innings of work. There's no reason to believe Cleveland's late-inning duo will be any less dominant in 2017.
