Freddie Freeman has been dealing with some dryness in his eyes. Freeman met with the team optometrist, who said he has some "abrasions in the whites of his eyes."
The condition is being treated with drops and a gel that Freeman puts into his eyes at night before he goes to sleep. Apparently he also had his eyes lids and tear ducts cleaned out which should get them producing tears and moisture to keep his eyes properly lubricated. With an off-day Thursday, Freeman says that he should receive enough consistent treatment and be ready to go for Friday's game.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Trevor Cahill has secured the final spot in the Diamondbacks' rotation.
With this news, it is confirmed that Daniel Hudson will start the season out of the team's bullpen. Cahill really struggled last season, but the team believes his revamped mechanics will equate to better success this season. In 17 starts and 14 relief appearances last year, he compiled a rough 5.61 ERA. Starters in Arizona will likely be back-end starters in many fantasy rotations this season. Analysis: Colby Conway
