Brandon Drury lost more than 10 pounds while also adding muscle over the offseason as he looked to become more agile.

The D'Backs asked Drury to improve his agility and lateral movements during the offseason as they looked to see whether he could be their regular at second base after shifting all over the field in 2016. The club has been impressed with how he's looked thus far. "We've simplified it for him," Lovullo said. "He's not bouncing all over the place. We told him that [second base] is where he needs to focus. I think it's helped him this offseason prepare for this moment. He's looked very good. He's very agile, good angles to the ball, playing through the ball, all the common phrases that you like to hear from an infield standpoint. I've been very impressed with his quickness in turning two. I see a guy that's really agile right now." Drury slugged 16 homers in 499 plate appearances last season and carries intrigue in fantasy leagues as a potential regular in 2017.

Logan Ondrusek (ankle) is expected to resume throwing off a mound soon.

Ondrusek just said a day ago that he wasn't sure when he'd resume throwing, so he must have experienced a lot of improvement over the last 24 hours. The reliever rolled his ankle nearly a week ago, but he'll be fine.

Club executives have told ESPN's Buster Olney that they don't believe Joe Blanton will sign for anything less than the $4 million he made last season.

It's certainly a reasonable ask, as Blanton has put up a 2.65 ERA and 159/42 K/BB ratio across 156 innings over the last two seasons while working almost exclusively as a reliever. He did turn 36 over the winter, but the right-hander would seem like a wise investment on a modest, one-year contract.

Cubs signed RHP Pedro Strop to a one-year, $5.85 million contract extension with a $6.25 million club option for 2019.

The two sides avoided arbitration earlier this month with a one-year, $5.5 million contract, and they've now tacked on one and potentially two more years. Strop had been slated to hit free agency next winter. The 31-year-old has been excellent since arriving in Chicago at the 2013 trade deadline, posting a 2.68 ERA with 254 strikeouts across 211 1/3 relief innings. He'll again be a setup man for the Cubs in 2017.

Trayce Thompson (back) will play in simulated games this spring before being cleared for Cactus League action.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Friday that Thompson is "on track" in his recovery from a pair of stress fractures in his back, but that doesn't mean he's on the same schedule as his teammates. The outfielder had expressed previously that he wanted to get into game action by March 1, but it's unclear whether that will happen.
