Nationals still haven't announced a timetable for third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, who is out with a hamstring injury.
A few days ago a nebulous 6-8 week tag was placed on Zimmerman, but apparently the Nats can't commit to that. It's safe to say he'll be out for most of the regular season, and he's droppable in re-draft leagues where decent options exist on the wire. Anthony Rendon is a third baseman by trade, so he'll cover the hot corner until Zimm is able to return. ANALYST:
Yankees grant RHP Scott Baker his unconditional release.
Baker was enjoying a serviceable career when he was with the Twins, but Tommy John surgery in 2012 derailed his career. He has yet to return to that form he exhibited when he was a starter in Minnesota and the Yankees have released the 33-year old. Baker could get signed by a team who believes that they can jump start his spiraling career. Analysis: Colby Conway
