    Blake Swihart Mar 24 9:50pm ET

    Boston Red Sox catcher Blake Swihart has made the Opening Day roster, the club announced on Sunday. Subsequently, catcher Sandy Leon has been placed on waivers. He and Christian Vazquez will break camp as the teams' backstops to start the season. Swihart has taken full advantage of his chance at the plate this spring, batting .414 over 29 at-bats with five RBI and three doubles. Swihart is certainly the offensive half of the catching platoon but by no means is he a fantasy must-have, even in a stout Boston lineup.

    Yusei Kikuchi Mar 24 9:30pm ET

    The Seattle Mariners plan to manage their rookie starter, Yusei Kikuchi, in an unorthodox fashion this season. In an effort to limit the 27-year-old's innings, they'll use him as an opener about once a month. General manager Jerry Dipoto wants to keep Kikuchi fresh by not totally skipping his starts, but healthy enough that his arm won't get overworked. Japanese throwing programs are vastly different than American methods, so the M's are choosing to transition their newly acquired lefty to the majors with ease. Kikuchi had an effective outing in his debut throwing 4.2 IP with three strikeouts, and he should remain a solid fantasy option when he takes the mound.

    Jung Ho Kang Mar 24 9:00pm ET

    Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Jung Ho Kang went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a 1-1 tie with the Orioles on Sunday. The home run was Kang's seventh of the spring. While Kang is only hitting .238, his power potential is very intriguing at the hot corner. Kang has already been named the Pirates' starting third baseman and could provide late value in mixed leagues.

    Nick Kingham Mar 24 8:50pm ET

    Pittsburgh Pirates starter Nick Kingham held the Orioles split-squad scoreless on Sunday, allowing just one hit and striking out two. Kingham will likely come out of the bullpen to start the season but could enter the rotation if fifth starter Jordan Lyles falters. The 27-year old struggled to a 5.21 ERA last season and should only be considered in dynasty formats.

    Trevor Williams Mar 24 8:40pm ET

    Pittsburgh Pirates starter Trevor Williams ended his spring training in style, spinning three scoreless innings against the Orioles split-squad on Sunday. Williams gave up three hits and struck out two in the eventual tie. Williams finished last season with 126 strikeouts and a 3.11 ERA in 31 starts. While his ERA was appealing, he does not strike out enough batters to be a consistent fantasy starter. However, he does have streamer appeal against weaker matchups.

    Greg Holland Mar 24 6:50pm ET

    Arizona Diamondbacks relief pitcher Greg Holland will serve as the team's closer this year, with Archie Bradley and Yoshihisa Hirano serving as late-inning setup men. The 33-year-old does have the most closing experience in Arizona's bullpen with 189 career saves over eight big league seasons. The right-hander posted a league-leading 41 saves in 2017 with the Rockies and has two other seasons with 40-plus closures. However, he had only three saves in 46 1/3 innings while posting a dreadful 4.66 ERA with the Cardinals and Nationals in 2018. Holland's fantasy stock is on the rise, but he'll have a short least in the desert if he struggles.

    Brian Duensing Mar 24 6:43pm ET

    Chicago Cubs LHP Brian Duensing was designated for assignment Sunday, March 24.

    Robby Scott Mar 24 6:33pm ET

    Arizona Diamondbacks LHP Robby Scott and INF Ildemaro Vargas were optioned to Class AAA Reno Sunday, March 24.

    Ildemaro Vargas Mar 24 6:33pm ET

    Arizona Diamondbacks LHP Robby Scott and INF Ildemaro Vargas were optioned to Class AAA Reno Sunday, March 24.

    Jose Ramirez Mar 24 6:30pm ET

    Updating a previous report, X-rays on Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez (knee) came back negative on Sunday after he fouled a pitch off his left knee. The All-Star third baseman was carted off the field in the spring game in the third inning against the White Sox. There is no immediate timetable for his return, however, and he was diagnosed with a left knee contusion. While Ramirez's status for Opening Day on Thursday might be in danger, it doesn't look like he'll miss significant time. He's RotoBaller's No. 3 overall fantasy option after he hit .270/.387/.552 with 39 home runs, 110 runs, 105 RBI and 34 steals in 2018.

    Franchy Cordero Mar 24 6:20pm ET

    Fighting for playing time this season, San Diego Padres outfielder Franchy Cordero has contributed a bit of everything on offense this spring, smacking two homers, stealing five bases and recording 19 runs-plus-RBI. The Friars 24-year-old prospect showed promise in 2018, cranking seven dingers and swiping five bags before midseason elbow surgery prematurely ended his season after just 154 plate appearances. If Cordero cuts down on strikeouts and plays more consistent defense, he could force himself into the conversation for regular starts as the Padres only left-handed outfield bat. Despite his ability to play all three outfield positions, Cordero will probably start the season as a platoon player but possesses the skillset to emerge above his teammates. His ADP of 446 looks relatively attractive compared to fellow center fielder Manuel Margot (296), but hes just a late-round flyer heading into the 2019 fantasy season.

    Bobby Wilson Mar 24 6:03pm ET

    Free-agent C Bobby Wilson (Tigers) signed a minor league contract with the Detroit Tigers Sunday, March 24. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

    Matt Duffy Mar 24 6:03pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays 3B Matt Duffy (back, hamstring) will not participate in baseball activities for two weeks because of back and hamstring problems, according to manager Kevin Cash.

    Troy Tulowitzki Mar 24 5:50pm ET

    New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman reiterated his club's confidence in Troy Tulowitzki, claiming they are "all in" on the veteran and also calling him "our shortstop" as the season nears. Of course, that's the case due to Didi Gregorius' Tommy John surgery and subsequent rehab that will keep him sidelined, perhaps for half of the season. Even if "Tulo" somewhat returns to form this year, his injury history means he'll likely need more than one rest day per week, making him a fantasy liability. These factors mean he's a considerable gamble to draft, knowing he'll miss multiple games weekly, could face new injuries or could simply not play well. After all, he's hitting just .219 this Spring, cooling off following a strong start.

    Amed Rosario Mar 24 5:40pm ET

    After settling in and having a much better second half of the season in 2018, New York Mets shortstop Amed Rosario has backed that up with a strong Spring Training. The 23-year-old has hit .333 in 15 games this Spring, stealing three bases, driving in 10 runs and smacking a pair of home runs. Heading into 2019, Rosario now features in a more potent lineup with the likes of Robinson Cano and Wilson Ramos joining the batting order. Surrounded by better hitters, he has a strong chance to thrive either at the top of the order or at the bottom.

    Jeff Hoffman Mar 24 5:23pm ET

    Colorado Rockies RHP Jeff Hoffman was optioned to Class AAA Albuquerque Sunday, March 24.

    Wilson Ramos Mar 24 5:20pm ET

    After taking a wild pitch off his hand earlier today, New York Mets catcher Wilson Ramos gave his club and their fans a scare as he would exit the game early. While the newly-signed 31-year-old went for an x-ray, the results came back negative. Ramos will travel with the club should be in the starting lineup for opening day against his former club, the Washington Nationals. He enjoyed a successful 2018 season and is poised to be his club's best slugger at the catcher position in some time. Those who have drafted Ramos or are planning to should ease any worries as he appears to have avoided any serious issues.

    Greg Bird Mar 24 5:10pm ET

    In the aftermath of Tyler Wade's demotion to Triple-A, the possibility that the New York Yankees could carry two players currently engaged in a position battle increased. Luke Voit and Greg Bird are currently battling it out for the starting job at first base, but it was assumed that only one would make the roster due to Tyler Wade's strong chances of being with the big league club to start the season. Now, however, it appears that even after outfielder Aaron Hicks returns from his injury, there will be two spots for both Voit and Bird. Bird lost out on the starting job last season after injuries and poor play, allowing Voit to swoop in during the latter part of the campaign. The 26-year-old has hit .316 this Spring, with three home runs and nine RBI in 18 games.

    Jose Ruiz Mar 24 5:03pm ET

    Chicago White Sox RHP Jose Ruiz was optioned to Class AAA Charlotte Sunday, March 24.

    James Paxton Mar 24 5:00pm ET

    As he readies to embark on his first season with the New York Yankees, Canadian left-hander James Paxton finished off his Spring with a third victory. The 30-year-old went 5 2/3 innings, allowing two runs on six hits while striking out five against the Minnesota Twins. Considering the potency of his offense, this is the kind of performance that will net him plenty of victories during the regular season. With Luis Severino injured, Paxton will begin the season as his club's number two starter behind Masahiro Tanaka and ahead of J.A. Happ. If his Spring is any indicator, he's more than ready for the job.
