Placido Polanco said he is "90 percent" retired.
The 39-year-old Polanco did not play anywhere in 2014 after batting .260/.315/.302 in 118 games for the Marlins in 2013. Polanco left open the possibility to return to the Marlins, Phillies or Tigers, though if he really wants to win a World Series ring the Phillies are probably out. Some team would probably do well to make Polanco a minor league player/coach like the Cubs did with Manny Ramirez last season. Polanco would have NL-only value with the Phillies or Marlins, but it is hard to believe he could ever again be relevant in mixed leagues. Analysis: Steve Pimental
Matt Reynolds has been sidelined by a sore right oblique.
Reynolds missed all of 2014 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but now a sore right oblique is keeping him off the mound. The silver lining here is that there hasn't been any issues with his surgically repaired elbow. Reynolds projects to be pitcher out of the pen in 2015 with no real fantasy value.

MLB/MLBPA panel is deadlocked over whether Josh Hamilton should be sent to rehab.
Hamilton's fate rested in the hands of four people, and the votes were split on whether or not to send the former All-Star to rehab. Hamilton was known to have failed at least six drug tests as a minor leaguer and was suspended from baseball from 2004 to 2006. He is in the third year of a five-year, $125 million deal and the Angels are hoping that he is on the field. He has been a bust since inking this contract and he is worth no more than a last round draft pick, especially with this relapse news. Analysis: Colby Conway
Charlie Blackmon was not in the lineup Wednesday due to slight abdominal pain.
It's Spring Training, so there's no need to make guys play through any injuries at the moment. Blackmon's injury appears to be very minor, probably just a tweak of the muscle or soreness, and the fact that he took batting practice prior to the game further cements the notion that the injury is nothing to worry about. But, given the Rockies plethora of injury prone players, it wouldn't be a surprise for Colorado to hold Blackmon out for another day or two just to be safe. Analysis: Ben Diamond
