Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Avoids serious injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(3/28/2017) X-ray results on Hernandez's injured right wrist came back negative Tuesday, Bill Plunkett os the Orange County Register reports.

It appears that Hernandez and the Dodgers dodged a bullet after the utility man was hit by a pitch on the wrist during Tuesday's game. It's possible that he'll experience some bruising or discomfort, but likely won't need to miss extended time. He'll remain a valuable reserve piece for the Dodgers entering the 2017 season.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(3/28/2017) Nava remains in the mix for a bench job with the Phillies, Todd Zolecki of report.

Nava's chances of earning a roster spot improved when the Phillies released Chris Coghlan on Tuesday. He has hit .361 with a double, a triple and a .910 OPS this spring. The veteran is competing with Brock Stassi and Jesmuel Valentin for two remaining bench jobs.

(3/28/2017) Hernandez exited Tuesday's Cactus League contest against the Pirates early after being hit by a pitch on the right wrist, Ken Gurnick of reports.

Gurnick also reported that Hernandez is undergoing x-rays Tuesday to determine if any structural damage occurred. Until additional news becomes available, the Dodgers' utility man will be considered day-to-day.

Cubs' Ian Happ: Reassigned to minor league camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(3/28/2017) Happ was reassigned to minor league camp on Monday, Carrie Muskat of reports.

Happ certainly has made an impression this spring, posting a .392/.458/.765 line in Cactus League play. The 22-year-old finished 2016 at Double-A, and the organization may want to see him get some exposure at Triple-A in 2017. Happ also played a little outfield this spring, and if he's able to contribute there regularly, he could get to the majors faster.

Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury: Expected to bat fifth
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(3/28/2017) Manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday that he is "leaning toward" batting Ellsbury fifth, the Associated Press reports.

Ellsbury has been in the two-hole throughout the spring, but he's batting fifth Tuesday and Girardi suggested that is where Ellsbury will be on Opening Day. The Yankees wanted to break up Brett Gardner and Ellsbury (both lefties) at the top of the order, so the new plan is to go with Gary Sanchez in the No. 2 spot followed by Greg Bird, Matt Holliday and Ellsbury. Ellsbury has never started a regular-season game in the No. 5 spot.

Indians' Dan Robertson: Leaves game with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(3/28/2017) Robertson left Tuesday's game with an apparent hamstring injury, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Robertson recorded his third hit of the day and it would have been a bases-clearing triple, but he pulled up on the basepaths. He then slammed his helmet in frustration, which suggests it could be a strain or perhaps worse. He wasn't in the running for an Opening Day roster spot, regardless.

Reds' Patrick Kivlehan: Likely on Reds' roster
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(3/28/2017) Kivlehan has likely made the Reds' Opening Day roster, according to's Mark Sheldon.

This assumes, as Sheldon points out, that the Reds don't pick up another player off waivers as they did with Scooter Gennett earlier Tuesday. He hasn't yet been added to the 40-man roster, however.

Jeff Gelalich: Let go by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(3/28/2017) Gelalich was released by the Reds on Tuesday, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, as Gelalich just racked up two at-bats for the Reds this spring, going 0-for-2 with a strikeout. The former second-round pick will look to catch on with a minor league deal elsewhere, though he hasn't shown much promise in his previous minor league stints.

Reds' Desmond Jennings: Sent to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(3/28/2017) Jennings was reassigned to minor league camp Tuesday.

Jennings was battling for a reserve outfield spot, and it looked like the 30-year-old had a good shot at making the big league roster with the release of Ryan Raburn. He was just 8-for-41 (.195) throughout spring, however, prompting the Reds to ship him off to the minors to start the season.

Twins' Robbie Grossman: Comes out of minor league game healthy
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(3/28/2017) Grossman (groin) played three innings of defense and logged four at-bats in a minor league game Tuesday and reported no issues, Rhett Bollinger of reports.

Grossman has missed a little over a week due to a bout of groin tightness, but it seems like the issue is now in the rear-view mirror. As long as the ailment doesn't return, he should be ready to be the fourth outfielder for the Twins when Opening Day comes.
