James Hoyt has been diagnosed with a minor oblique strain.

Even minor oblique strains can sometimes take a couple of weeks to recover from, so it's possible Hoyt will have to open the 2018 season on the 10-day disabled list. The 31-year-old right-hander has struggled this spring in the Grapefruit League, yielding nine runs -- eight earned -- in 8 1/3 innings. Maybe a short stay at extended spring training would do him some good.

Yuli Gurriel (hand) fielded grounders, ran the bases, and did some light hitting Tuesday in Astros camp.

Gurriel underwent surgery in late February to remove the hook of the hamate bone in his left hand. The original timetable called for him to be sidelined for 5-6 weeks, and it appears that will turn out to be fairly accurate. He could be ready to rock around the second or third week of the regular season as long as there are no setbacks. Gurriel still has to serve a five-game suspension for his insensitive gesture toward Yu Darvish in last year's World Series.

Orioles signed RHP Alex Cobb to a four-year, $57 million contract.

Cobb agreed to the deal on Tuesday evening and promptly passed his physical on Wednesday morning. This was a pretty nice score this late in the spring for the 30-year-old right-hander, especially with Lance Lynn having to settle for a one-year, $12 million contract from the Twins last week. Cobb is expected to spend a bit of time in the minors when the season opens so that he can get properly stretched out. He figures to join the Orioles' rotation around mid-April.

Phillies released LHP Fernando Abad.

Abad got torched for six earned runs over just 1 2/3 innings (three appearances) this spring in the Grapefruit League. The 32-year-old left-hander was in Phillies camp on a minor league contract as a non-roster invitee.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Wednesday that there is a "less than 50 percent" chance Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will start the team's fourth regular-season game.

It's kind of remarkable that it's even a consideration given that Rodriguez underwent major knee surgery last October. He's made great progress, but mid-April is a much safer target for his 2018 debut. Hector Velasquez will probably open as Boston's No. 4 starter, with Brian Johnson in the No. 5 spot. Chris Sale, David Price, and Rick Porcello -- in that order -- will work the first three games of the season for the Red Sox.
