Player AlarmsView All
J. Musgrove - SP
Musgrove (abdomen) completed a bullpen session Wednesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Musgrove is only slightly behind schedule compared to the rest of his projected rotation mates, who all tossed live batting practice this week. The right-hander, who underwent surgery in October to repair his right abdominal wall, could have his innings monitored carefully during the spring but looks well on his way to being ready for Opening Day. The Pirates are tentatively lining Musgrove up to start their third game of the season March 31 in Cincinnati.

C. Archer - SP
Archer (sports hernia) tossed a round of live batting practice Wednesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Archer's ability to face hitters in the second week of camp along with the rest of his fellow healthy pitchers supports the notion that the sports hernia surgery he required in November won't impact his preparation for the upcoming season. Due to his status as a veteran who's locked into a rotation spot, Archer's Grapefruit League debut could be somewhat delayed, but it shouldn't be viewed as a sign that he's experienced any sort of setback in his recovery unless the Pirates suggest otherwise. Pittsburgh is tentatively planning to have Archer start its home opener April 1 versus the Cardinals.

T. Roark - SP
With Sonny Gray not pitching Saturday, the Reds will bump up Roark one inning to get the start, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
The only thing that changes for Roark is the ordering. He'll get his one inning of work regardless, and obviously his role for the season is unchanged.

M. Pineda - SP
Pineda (knew) reached 93 mph with his fastball during his first live batting practice session Wednesday. "I feel ready to pitch now," he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune, "but I'm following their program for me."
Pineda had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee at the end of August while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery. He made four minor-league rehab outings before the surgery. While just a throwing session, it sounds like Pineda is ready to appear in a spring training game the first week of the exhibition season.

M. Koch - RP
Koch was scratched from his upcoming spring debut Friday due to arm fatigue.
It's possible that this is just a minor spring maintenance issue, though it's not a great sign for a pitcher to fatigued before game action even starts. Nick Green will start the team's Cactus League opener in his place.

J. Barrett - RP
Barrett was designated for assignment by the Giants on Friday.
Barrett will make room on the 40-man roster for Hanser Alberto, who was claimed off waivers from Baltimore in a corresponding move. Barrett has already been designated for assignment once this offseason prior to Friday's move and was subsequently acquired by the Giants from the Diamondbacks in exchange for cash considerations.

H. Alberto - SS
Alberto was claimed off waivers by the Giants on Friday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
Alberto was designated for assignment earlier this week when the Orioles claimed Josh Osich, who was coincidentally designated for assignment by the Giants. In addition to the Giants, the 26-year-old spent time with the Yankees and Orioles this offseason. Alberto has brief major-league experience, with a .192/.210/.231 slash line in 192 at-bats across three seasons.
Added Yesterday 2:39 pm (EST)
S. Ohtani - DH
Ohtani will hit off a tee Friday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
The recovery timeline for Tommy John surgery is shorter for hitters than pitchers, and the hitting half of Ohtani expects to only miss the first month of the season. Barring setbacks, he's targeting a return sometime in May, though he'll be unable to pitch at any point in 2019.
