Hanley Ramirez was removed from Friday's game against the Brewers due to tightness in his right side.

He was replaced at shortstop by Miguel Rojas. The Dodgers are calling his removal merely a precautionary measure, and the All-Star shortstop should be considered day-to-day.

Twins pitching prospect Lewis Thorpe will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament.

The surgery date has yet to be determined, but it's a tough blow for the 19-year-old hurler. He will miss the entire 2015 season and could be sidelined for the start of 2016 as well.

Ryan Zimmerman is expected to be sidelined for the next 2-3 days after jamming his left shoulder on a diving play in Friday's Grapefruit League contest.

The Nationals don't believe that the injury is serious and do not have an MRI scheduled. Zimmerman remains fully confident that he will be in the team's lineup on Opening Day.

Twins optioned OF Aaron Hicks to Triple-A Rochester.

Once again, Hicks had an opportunity to seize the team's starting job in center field with a strong spring, but hit just .206/.300/.324 with a 9/5 K/BB ratio in 34 spring at-bats. It appears as though Jordan Schafer will function as the team's starting center fielder to begin the season.

Christian Vazquez (elbow) said Saturday that his MRI "found something" but the team will get a second opinion before making a formal diagnosis.

That certainly doesn't sound promising for his chances of suiting up on Opening Day. Vazquez has been battling a sore right elbow for the past week or so which prompted the exam. If he is unavailable for the start of the season, Ryan Hanigan could function as the team's primary catcher.

Carlos Gonzalez was removed from Friday's Cactus League contest against the Padres with a sore left knee.

The oft-injured outfielder walked off with the team trainer in the middle of the fourth inning. The Rockies announced that he was pulled for precautionary reasons, so at the moment it doesn't sound to be a serious concern. This shouldn't impact his availability for the start of the regular season.

Yordano Ventura was outstanding in Friday's Cactus League start against the Mariners, hurling seven innings of no-hit ball.

Ventura whiffed four on the evening, while the only baserunners he allowed were on a pair of walks. It was far and away the best start of the spring for the young right-hander who sports a 5.14 ERA and 13/6 K/BB ratio over 14 innings. Recently tabbed as the Royals' Opening Day starter, Ventura will look to carry over this dominating effort into the regular season.

Jorge Soler launched one of four Cubs home runs off Jeff Samardzija on Friday as they dispatched of the White Sox 6-3 in Cactus League action.

Soler was the first to take Samardzija out of the yard on Friday, blasting a two-run homer to put the Cubs on the board in the first inning. Anthony Rizzo, Starlin Castro and Chris Coghlan would each get in on the fun before the afternoon was through. Soler has been mighty impressive in Cactus League play, hitting .333 (14-for-42) with three homers and nine RBI.

Josh Collmenter delivered an outstanding performance in Friday's Cactus League victory over the Indians scattering three hits and two walks over seven scoreless innings.

The Diamondbacks' Opening Day starter struck out three on the impressive afternoon. He has yet to be scored upon in 13 innings of work on the spring while registering a 6/2 K/BB ratio. Though he isn't going to compile many strikeouts, the 29-year-old hurler owns a career 3.42 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 516 career innings and makes for a solid backend starter in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.

Jordan Zimmermann admitted Friday that the chances he signs a contract extension with the Nationals are "not looking good."

Zimmermann won't negotiate during the season, and he indicated that there's been little-to-no talks between his reps and the club. "I’m just not going to talk during the season," Zimmermann said. "If something gets done before then — which is probably pretty rare right now — then it gets done. But it’s not looking good." Zimmermann will earn $16.5 million this season before hitting the open market next winter.

Mets manager Terry Collins indicated Friday that Daniel Murphy (hamstring) is likely to begin the season on the disabled list.

"He's running out of time," Collins said. "... We don't have a lot of time. I'm going to talk to Dan tomorrow. We don't have a lot of time to get him ready. I got word of what he did today, and we certainly have to speed it up a little bit. So I'm getting a little concerned he's not going to have enough time." General manager Sandy Alderson expressed a similar sentiment, saying it "would be a little surprising" if Murphy made it back "sooner than roughly Opening Day." Alderson added that Murphy is likely to play in minor league games next week even if plays in games at all. That would allow the Mets to backdate his DL stint, potentially setting him up to miss as few as six games.

Jon Gray is now slated to start Saturday's Cactus League game versus the Indians, replacing Tyler Matzek.

As Nick Groke of the Denver Post notes, that potentially lines up Gray to start the second game of the season in Milwaukee. Matzek will now start on March 31 instead, lining him up for the Rockies' home opener. The news comes on the heels of general manager Jeff Bridich saying that Gray's arbitration timeline is a "non-factor," so things seem to be pointing towards the top prospect making Colorado's Opening Day rotation. Gray is obviously hurt greatly by having Coors Field as his home park, but we wouldn't rule out him having mixed league value this season.
