Ryan Zimmerman taking BP, returning to Nationals' lineup Monday
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:08 am ET) Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman should play on Monday, manager Matt Williams said. 

Zimmerman left Friday's game after injuring his shoulder and back on a diving play and was expected to be shut down for two-to-three days.

He'll taking batting practice and go through pregame warmups on Sunday and then return to the lineup the following day, Williams said, per the Washington Post's James Wagner


Jayson Werth 'a stretch' to be ready by Nationals' opener
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:04 am ET) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth took batting practice on Saturday, for the first time since the shoulder surgery that has kept him out this spring. 

Manager Matt Williams said the hitting went well, but Werth won't hit in a minor league game on Sunday. The team still hopes Werth will be ready by Opening Day, but Williams said that was "a stretch", per James Wagner of the Washington Post.


Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz named Opening Day starter
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:59 am ET) Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz has been named the starter for Opening Day, the Providence Journal reports.

Buchholz gets the call after going 8-11 with a 5.34 ERA and 132:54 K:BB ratio in 170 1/3 innings in 2014. He's the only member of the projected rotation to have spent a full season with the Red Sox, as the team's other four projected starters have made a total of 10 starts in a Red Sox uniform.


Astros' Samuel Deduno wins bullpen spot
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:55 am ET) The Astros have informed pitcher Samuel Deduno that he was won a spot in the bullpen and will pitch in long relief for the team, MLB.com reports.

"[Manager] A.J. [Hinch] talked to him and he was excited because when he came in the office he was a little nervous," general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "He had a big smile on his face when he left the office this morning."

Deduno was claimed off waivers by the Astros in August. He posted a 4.47 ERA and 83:46 K:BB ratio in 100 2/3 innings overall last season but pitched better after the move, giving up just three earned runs in 8 2/3 innings.


Astros option Dominguez, Buchanan, Stassi; reassign Correa
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:51 am ET) The Astros optioned third baseman Matt Dominguez and pitchers Jake Buchanan and Max Stassi to the minors Sunday while reassigning shortstop Carlos Correa, infielder Gregorio Petit, catcher Tyler Heineman and pitchers Darin Downs and James Hoyt to minor-league camp.

Dominguez opened last season as the team's starting third baseman but found himself behind in the race for a bench role this spring.

"[Luis] Valbuena had an amazing spring so far and is basically going to be our third baseman and that leaves Matt in competition with some of the other guys for an extra spot on the roster, a spot off the bench, and right now we feel like there’s a couple of other guys ahead of him and he needs to play every day," general manager Jeff Lunhow said, per MLB.com "Right now he’ll go down to Fresno and play third and play some first and be ready when the need arises."

Correa is the team's top-rated prospect but has yet to play above high Class A.

"Carlos is going to be a star player in the big leagues. It’s just a matter of time," Luhnow said. "Having never had an at-bat in Double-A, he needs to go get some regular work in the high minors. He did a great job for us on the field as well as off the field and I think he’s got a lot of fans in the organization and he impressed the big league staff, which is what you want as a young player."


Philies option Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, Hector Neris
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:43 am ET) The Phillies optioned pitchers Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez and Hector Neris to Triple-A Lehigh Valley and reassigned four players to minor-league camp.

Gonzalez was in the mix to win a rotation spot heading into the spring but posted a 7.53 ERA while giving up 25 hits in 14 1/3 innings. Neris surrendered 10 runs (eight earned) in nine spring innings.

The team reassigned pitcher Paul Clemens, catcher Koyie Hill and infielders Chris McGuiness and Chris Nelson to minor-league camp.


Jared Burton back with Yankees
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:35 am ET) Pitcher Jared Burton is back in camp with the Yankees, MLB.com reports.

Burton indicated that he has yet to finalize his deal with the team, but he'll be rejoining the Yankees a few days after being released. He's due to play catch Sunday as he gets back in his routine.


Yankees' Girardi on Betances: Saturday was 'a step' forward
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:32 am ET) Yankees pitcher Dellin Betances allowed an earned run Saturday for the fifth straight appearance, but manager Joe Girardi believes the reliever improved in the outing, the New York Post reports.

"I thought he was better, I thought the curveball was better," Girardi said. "It’s a step in the right direction."

"I have been working with Larry [Rothschild, pitching coach]," Betances said after the outing. "My leg kick was too high and I am trying to straighten up and get my direction toward home instead of flying open."

Betances has delivered a 7.11 ERA and 5:3 K:BB ratio in 6 1/3 innings.


Yankees' Didi Gregorius (wrist) feeling better Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:10 am ET) Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius said his injured wrist felt much better Sunday and that he expects to be ready for Opening Day, LoHud.com reports.

Gregorius tweaked his wrist on a check swing Saturday and is scheduled to rest Sunday and Monday. He has hit .308/.349/.513 over 39 at-bats this spring.


Braves release RP James Russell
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:06 am ET) The Braves have released relief pitcher James Russell, MLB.com reports.

Russell came to the Braves from the Cubs in a deadline-day deal last season and posted a 2.22 ERA and 16:4 K:BB ratio in 24 1/3 innings with his new team. He struggled this spring, allowing nine earned runs and three homers in 7 2/3 innings while striking out three and walking three.
