John Lamb underwent disc surgery on his back in December.
Lamb, 25, came over from the Royals as part of the Johnny Cueto deadline deal and pitched for the Reds the rest of the way in 2015, despite his terrible numbers. The fact that the procedure went unreported until now, nearly two months later, is surprising in this day and age of social media and instant news outlets. He is penciled in as the Reds fifth starter but will now undoubtedly miss the start of the season and may need a tune up in Triple-A first. His 5.80 ERA over the last 50 innings as a Red isn't great but he did post a 3:1 K:BB ratio (58:19) meaning there is hope he can get the ERA figure down. He will be a waiver wire add come draft time.

Dodgers re-signed RHP Chin-Hui Tsao to a minor league contract.
Tsao posted some solid numbers at Triple-A last season, recording seven saves and a 2.77 ERA. At 34 years of age, he likely won't be getting much better than that, however his production seems solid enough to warrant him a major league roster spot if someone in the Dodgers bullpen gets injured during 2016. Having said all of this, he should be a non-factor in all fantasy formats going forward. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Dodgers signed IF Brandon Hicks to a minor league contract.
Boasting a career batting average of .153, Hicks doesn't really have a good reputation to fall back on in terms of organizational trust. Everything he accomplishes from here on out will be off of merit and not by being gifted opportunities. Don't bet on him to do much more for the Dodgers than fill out the Triple-A roster.
