Caleb Smith Headshot

Smith, a 2016 Rule 5 draft selection, did not make the Cubs' Opening Day roster and will be returned to the Yankees.

Per the guidelines of the Rule 5 draft, Smith had to make the Cubs' active roster in order to remain in their organization. The defending World Series champions decided to cut ties with the 25-year-old, so he will begin the 2017 campaign as a Yankees minor-leaguer. The left-hander posted a 3.96 ERA over 63.2 innings at Double-A Trenton in 2016.

James Reimer Headshot

Reimer suffered an upper-body injury in Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs and will not return.

Reimer was down for a bit and then headed off to the bench. Reto Berra replaced him with the Panthers trailing 2-0. It's dire straits for Florida, who are already operating without Roberto Luongo due to a lower-body injury. If Reimer is forced to miss time then Berra might be thrust into a regular starting role down the stretch.

A.J. Ellis Headshot

Ellis (hamstring) went 1-for-3 with a run scored during Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals.

Ellis missed extended time with a hamstring strain this spring but seems to have made a full recovery as he played five innings in a minor league game over the weekend and started Tuesday's Grapefruit League contest. He'll open the season as the primary backup catcher to J.T. Realmuto.
9:11 pm (EST)
Jhonny Peralta Headshot

Peralta (knee) went 2-for-2 in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets.

Peralta exited Saturday's game early after fouling a pitch off of his knee. The X-rays came back negative and after a couple of days off, he was able to suit up Tuesday. He's slated to begin the 2017 campaign as the Cardinals' top third baseman, though he's expected to split time with Jedd Gyorko.

Cody Reed Headshot

Reed has been added to the Reds' Opening Day roster, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Reed was shelled for 10 earned runs over 3.2 innings Monday against the Giants, but the disastrous outing wasn't enough to keep him off of the rebuilding Reds' 25-man roster. The 23-year-old disappointed in his 10 starts for the Reds in 2016 (7.36 ERA), but will have a chance to redeem himself this season. He'll likely begin the year as a long-relief bullpen arm, though he could pitch his way into the rotation eventually.

James Michael McAdoo Headshot

McAdoo, who was forced from Tuesday's game against the Rockets with a laceration to his head, is currently receiving stitches and will be evaluated for a concussion, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.

Rockets' forward Trevor Ariza appeared to accidentally land on McAdoo after a collision, which opened a laceration to his head. McAdoo is currently receiving stitches and will be evaluated for a concussion, so it doesn't seem likely he'll be able to return to Tuesday's game. Look for an additional update to be provided in the near future, which should clarify whether or not he could miss time with any concussion-like symptoms.
8:51 pm (EST)
Robert Stephenson Headshot

Stephenson has made the Reds' Opening Day roster as a reliever, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Despite a rough spring performance in which he posted a 5.63 ERA over 16 innings pitched, the Reds saw enough in Stephenson to add him to the 25-man roster. The 24-year-old will likely operate in a low-leverage relief role to begin the season.
8:46 pm (EST)
Kyle Seager Headshot

Seager, who raised his spring average to .308 with a 2-for-3 effort in Monday's Cactus League loss to the Padres, is hoping to avoid the sluggish start that has been a part of his last three seasons, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports. "I'm going to try to get more hits than I did last year," he reiterated. "But other than that, I'm going to pretty much try to be the same. If it happens again, and you keep the big picture in mind, you can get out of it."

The slugging third baseman has hit a combined .216 over the opening month of the 2014-16 seasons, a downturn he's intent on avoiding in 2017. Seager has bounced back to produce solid campaigns in each of those years and has hit at least 20 home runs in all five of his full major league seasons. He's generating some strong momentum as the Mariners prepare to transition to the regular season, as factoring in Monday's production, he's now hit safely in six of his last 13 at-bats.
8:42 pm (EST)
Jonathan Quick Headshot

Quick is confirmed as the starting goaltender for Tuesday's game against the Oilers, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Quick will be hoping for a little more offensive support than his last trip to Edmonton last Monday when the Kings were blanked 2-0. He stopped 31 shots in that game. In fact, the offense has provided him with no support in either of his past two outings, and a total of five goals of support over his past five starts. He has allowed just eight goals during the span but has one win to show for his efforts.
