Raimel Tapia and Jarren Duran are still fighting for a spot on the Red Sox' season-opening roster.
Tapia homered on Monday in a minor league spring training game and is continuing to battle with former top prospect Jarren Duran for one of the final spots on Boston's Opening Day roster as a reserve outfielder. It's possible he'll wind up accepting an assignment to Triple-A Worcester, if he's unable to find an opportunity elsewhere.
Rockies optioned RHP Gavin Hollowell to Triple-A Albuquerque.
Hollowell made six unremarkable relief appearances last year for the Rockies in his big league debut. The 25-year-old righty missed some time this spring with lower back tightness and will open the regular season back in the minors as extra organizational relief depth.
Brewers reassigned OF Joey Wiemer to minor league camp.
Wiemer batted .262 (11-for-42) with two homers and three steals in 18 games this spring in the Cactus League. The 24-year-old top prospect will head back to Triple-A Nashville to open the regular season.
Owen Miller has made the Brewers' Opening Day roster.
The dominoes continue to fall for the Brewers on Monday as Miller has been informed that he's made Milwaukee's season-opening roster in a versatile super-utility role. With plenty of talented prospects on the horizon, he'll need to produce to keep his roster spot for longer than a few months.
Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports the Orioles are acquiring left-hander Danny Coulombe from the Twins.
Coulombe has an opt-out in his minor league contract with the Twins, but the Orioles are willing to give him a spot on their season-opening 26-man roster to keep him from using it.
Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports Domingo Tapia is under consideration for a spot on the Padres' season-opening roster.
Tapia has allowed just two runs on three hits with an 11/0 K/BB ratio across eight innings (eight appearances). The hard-throwing 31-year-old righty reliever signed a minor league contract with the Padres back in January and is making a serious push for a roster spot.
Rays released RHP Tyler Zombro.
Zombro made a pair of relief appearances last season for Triple-A Durham, less than one year after being struck in the head by a line drive, which resulted in a fractured skull that wound up requiring emergency brain surgery. The 28-year-old righty underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery last June.
Reds re-signed RHP Hunter Strickland to a minor league contract.
Strickland was released from his minor league contract with the Reds last weekend, but has apparently opted to stick around and will head to Triple-A Louisville as emergency organizational relief depth. The 34-year-old veteran reliever made 66 appearances last year for Cincinnati.
Edouard Julien was removed from Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates due to a left ankle sprain.
Julien has put together a phenomenal effort this spring, but will open the regular season in the minors. The 23-year-old prospect figures to make his big league debut sometime later this year, especially if he keeps tearing the cover off the ball.
Estevan Florial, Willie Calhoun and Rafael Ortega are fighting for one of the final spots on the Yankees' season-opening roster.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone told YES Network on Monday that the club will decide their final roster spots over the next day or two. He also added that Greg Weissert and Ian Hamilton are vying for a spot in New York's bullpen.
White Sox manager Pedro Grifol told reporters that Yoán Moncada (back) was feeling better on Monday morning.
Grifol added that Moncada is doing okay and he's gotten positive feedback on his status. The 27-year-old third baseman made an early exit from Sunday's Cactus League game against the Rockies due to lower back stiffness. Fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day heading into Thursday's Opening Day matchup against the Astros.
Juan Soto (oblique) played on Monday in a minor league spring training game.
Soto appears likely to be ready for Opening Day later this week, but that hasn't been confirmed yet. The 24-year-old fantasy superstar is working his way back from a mild left oblique strain that he suffered earlier this month.
Joe Musgrove (toe) pitched on Monday in a minor league spring training game.
Musgrove will open the regular season on the injured list as he continues to work his way back from a fractured left big toe, but is targeting a mid-April return to the Padres' starting rotation.
Jake Rill of MLB.com reports Tyler Wells is likely to make the Orioles' season-opening starting rotation.
Rill also confirmed an earlier report from Andy Kostka of The Baltimore Banner on Monday that top pitching prospect Grayson Rodriguez will be optioned to Triple-A Norfolk to open the regular season. It certainly looks like fantasy managers will have to wait a bit longer for Rodriguez to finally arrive in Baltimore.
Seiya Suzuki (oblique) will play defense on Monday in a minor league spring training game.
Suzuki has also progressed to taking batting practice and is getting closer to appearing in minor league games. The 28-year-old outfielder will open the regular season on a rehab assignment and is aiming to return to the Cubs' lineup sometime in mid-April.
Brandon Hughes (knee) will throw a bullpen session on Monday.
Hughes is attempting to be ready for Opening Day later this week, but it's going to be a tough call for the Cubs. The 27-year-old lefty has been working his way back from a left knee issue that's kept him out the majority of the spring. He might be a literal game-time decision later this week.
Cubs manager David Ross said Monday that Javier Assad will open the regular season in the bullpen.
Assad wasn't able to beat out Hayden Wesneski for the final spot in Chicago's starting rotation, but he'll still make the club as a long reliever. The 25-year-old righty made nine appearances (eight starts) last year for the Cubs in his big league debut.
Dylan Moore (oblique) resumed swinging a bat on Monday.
Mariners manager Scott Servais said Monday that he expects Moore to return in mid-April. The versatile 30-year-old infielder is working his way back from a Grade 1 left oblique strain that he suffered earlier this month.
Cubs reassigned LHP Roenis Elías and OF Mike Tauchman to minor league camp.
Elías and Tauchman were both in camp this spring as non-roster invitees after signing minor league contracts.
Mets optioned RHP Tylor Megill to Triple-A Syracuse.
Megill told reporters that he's taking the ball on Friday for Opening Day at Triple-A Syracuse. The 27-year-old righty was edged out by lefty David Peterson for the final spot in the Mets' season-opening starting rotation. He finished with spring with a lackluster 3.71 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 12/13 K/BB ratio across 17 innings (five appearances, three starts).
