Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer writes that Ryan Merritt is facing an uphill battle to make the Indians' 25-man roster.

Merritt is out of options, so Cleveland would risk losing the 26-year-old left-hander to another club without receiving compensation if he's not in uniform on Opening Day. Still, because the Indians appear to have a full rotation and a bullpen that doesn't appear to have much -- if any -- room either, he could be left out of the mix. Merritt has pitched well at times and could serve as insurance if an injury takes place, but he also could be a trade candidate near the end of spring training for a team looking for a back-end starter.

Angels placed RHP Alex Meyer on the 60-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.

The move clears a 40-man roster space for outfielder Jabari Blash, whom the Angels acquired on Wednesday in a trade with the Yankees. Meyer underwent labrum surgery on his right shoulder last September and will reportedly be sidelined until at least the beginning of the 2019 season.

Angels acquired OF Jabari Blash from the Yankees for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Blash was recently designated for assignment by the Yankees in order to make room for Brandon Drury, who was acquired from the Diamondbacks in a three-team trade on Tuesday. The 28-year-old outfielder has a career .200/.323/.336 batting line at the major league level, but his power from the right side could allow him to be a bench bat for the Angels in 2018.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon told reporters on Wednesday that Javier Baez will have to show a better approach at the plate to earn more playing time.

"[Baez] is at that point now (that) to get those 500 to 600 plate appearances, (he needs to) organize (his) strike zone, accept walks and use the whole field," Maddon said Wednesday. "That would be the next level for him." Baez is still just 25 years old, but his grand total of 64 walks in 1,267 plate appearances speaks to his lack of patience at the plate. He oozes talent, but if he's ever going to reach his ceiling, there has to be a reason for pitchers to throw him more strikes. If he does eventually find that groove, look out.

Rangers signed RHP Jesse Chavez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Chavez will make $1 million in base salary, and it will increase to $1.5 million if he's added to the active roster. Heyman also notes that Chavez can earn another $1 million if he reaches a specific number of starts, and the deal also comes with $500,000 in potential relief incentives. Chavez registered a 5.35 ERA in 38 appearances (21 starts) with the Angels last year, tallying 119 strikeouts in his 138 innings. He provides value because of his swingman ability, but he's been much more effective pitching out of the bullpen. Long relief is likely going to be his role with the Rangers when all is said and done.
