3/24:Houston Astros first baseman Tyler White was optioned to Triple-A Fresno, according to Brian McTaggert of White was a victim of his own slow start (he batted .209/.339/.781 in 43 at-bats) and strong springs from J.D. Davis and Derek Fisher, both of whom made the club's 25-man roster. White hit better in a 22-game sample with the Astros last season and should find himself in Houston at some point this year. Tony Kemp was also optioned to Fresno.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Brian McTaggert on Twitter
3/24:New York Mets starting pitcher Seth Lugo is expected to open the season in the Mets' starting rotation, according to Matt Ehalt of the Bergen Record. It is not as good of news as it sounds for Lugo, as he is likely just keeping the seat warm until Jason Vargas returns from surgery on his non-pitching hand. That is expected to be in mid-April, so Lugo may only make one turn before being reassigned. Lugo earned the look with a strong spring, posting a 2.87 ERA and 0.96 WHIP with 17 strikeouts in 15 2/3 Grapefruit League innings.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Matt Ehalt on Twitter
3/24:Seattle Mariners first baseman Mike Ford was returned from the Mariners to the Yankees, per a team release. Ford was assigned to Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre, but, pending the health of Greg Bird, Ford could be sprung into duty quickly for the Yankees. Ford had an .885 OPS in 65 Spring Training plate appearances for the Mariners and had an .875 OPS in his time with Double-A Trenton and Scranton last season.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: New York Yankees PR on Twitter
3/24:Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Bryce Brentz was placed on waivers by the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday, according to Liz Bloom of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The former first-round pick of the Boston Red Sox hit .250/.362/.350 with one home run in 47 spring plate appearances. He has 127 career minor-league home runs, including 31 last year, but he has been unable to stick in the majors due to injuries. With his power, however, it would not be surprising if another team snatched him up on waivers as a bench bat. As for the Pirates, the latest move, along with optioning Jordan Luplow to Triple-A earlier in the day, would seemingly give the last bench spot to first baseman Jose Osuna. Bloom notes the team may opt to carry only four bench players for the time being, though, so Osuna's spot is not guaranteed.--Matt Wilkes - RotoBallerSource: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
3/24:Philadelhia Phillies starting pitcher Jake Arrieta will make his Phillies debut on April 8 against the Marlins, according to Matt Gelb of The Athletic. Arrieta was a little behind after signing with the Phils on March 12, but he will just miss a few days of action before being ready to roll. It also suggests he will be a viable option to start for fantasy teams right away, since they are not rushing him into action. Arrieta's debut will come at home.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Matt Gelb on Twitter
3/24:Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Boone Logan (triceps) will miss six weeks, manager Craig Counsell tells Adam McCalvy of Logan suffered what had been described as a minor left triceps strain earlier in the week, but it appears to be more serious than initially thought. He will rejoin the Brewers' bullpen before the end of May if all goes well.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Adam McCalvy on Twitter
3/24:Washington Nationals catcher Miguel Montero will be the Nationals' backup catcher to start the year, according to Jamal Collier of The 34-year-old was in camp as a non-roster invitee, but showed enough (or perhaps competition Pedro Severino failed to show enough) to earn the roster spot. He will back up starter Matt Wieters.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Jamal Collier on Twitter
3/24:New York Mets starting pitcher Jason Vargas (hand) is expected to start the year on the disabled list, according to Matt Ehalt of the Bergen Record. It was up in the air as to whether he would have enough time to make it back from surgery on his non-throwing hand, but Mets manager Mickey Callaway on Saturday confirmed that it is likely he'll begin the year on the DL. With it being just a 10-day DL now, that could mean just one missed turn in the rotation, depending on how the Mets play it. Seth Lugo will fill in for Vargas until he is activated--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Matt Ehalt on Twitter
3/24:Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo will not make the big league roster, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Brewers' manager Craig Counsell informed Gallardo that he will not make the Brewers' Opening Day roster. It is unclear if he will be released or could conceivably accept a minor league assignment. Gallardo had been in the mix for a bullpen spot after losing out on a spot in the starting rotation.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Tom Haudricourt on Twitter
3/24:Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Pat Venditte will be sent to minor league camp, according to Ken Gurnick of The 32-year-old was terrific in Cactus League play, registering a 1.74 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 13/3 K/BB ratio over 10 1/3 innings. He will surely get a chance with the big league club at some point during the 2018 campaign.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Ken Gurnick on Twitter
3/24:Cleveland Indians relief pitcher Matt Belisle has secured a spot in the team's Opening Day bullpen, according to Jordan Bastian of The veteran right-hander has had a terrible spring, posting a 6.10 ERA, 2.03 WHIP and 8/1 K/BB ratio over 10 1/3 innings of work, but apparently the Indians see something that they like. He will function in middle relief for the Tribe and is not relevant for fantasy purposes.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Jordan Bastian on Twitter
3/24:Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher Francisco Rodriguez was released by the team, according to Todd Zolecki of The 36-year-old hurler was informed that he would not make the Opening Day bullpen, and rather than accept an assignment to Triple-A, asked for his release so he could explore other opportunities. He posted a 5.40 ERA, 2.85 WHIP and 5/8 K/BB ratio over 6 2/3 innings in Grapefruit League play.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Todd Zolecki
3/24:Washington Nationals outfielder Ryan Raburn was released, according to Mark Zuckerman of the Washington Post. The 36-year-old had mentioned earlier in camp that he would retire if he did not make the team's Opening Day roster, so we will see if he has any desire to latch on elsewhere or if he willl retire. Raburn was just 2-for-25 (.080) with eight strikeouts in Grapefruit League competition this spring.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Mark Zuckerman on Twitter
3/24:Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Danny Duffy was removed from Saturday's game with an injury, according to Jeffrey Flanagan of Manager Ned Yost checked with Duffy after he walked two batters against the Diamondbacks, and Duffy stayed in, but then spoke with the trainer and left the game. More information on the injury will be revealed, but this is not good news considering how close we are to the regular season. Looking to bounce back after going 9-10 with a 3.81 ERA last season, a DL stint, if that is where Duffy is headed, is not a good start to the 2018 season.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Jeffrey Flanagan on Twitter
3/24:Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Brent Suter has made the Brewers' Opening Day rotation and will start the third game of the regular season against the Padres. Chase Anderson and Jhoulys Chacin will work the first two games of the season, with Zach Davies slated for the home opener against the Cardinals. Suter has compiled a 5.40 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 18/5 K/BB ratio across 16 2/3 innings in Cactus League play. Given his strikeout upside, he is worth a dart through in the later rounds of mixed league drafts.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Milwaukee Brewers on Twitter
