What You Need to Know: David Price is a True Red Sox

Didi Gregorius is hurt, the Nationals are trying to find a closer, and Matt Harvey is trying to find his velocity.

Gregorius to begin season on DL

After straining his shoulder earlier this spring in an exhibition game for the Netherlands’ World Baseball Classic team, Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius has officially been shut down from all baseball activities for two weeks and will be put on the 10-day disabled list to start the season. Initial estimates from general manager Brian Cashman were that the shortstop could be out for up to six weeks, which isn’t great news for the Yankees.

David Price, Ian Desmond, and Anthony DeSclafani are out for Opening Day and beyond.

Price likely to start season on disabled list

A day after David Price said that he was optimistic after getting a second opinion on his elbow and had heard what he “wanted to hear,” manager John Farrell announced that the Red Sox left-hander would begin the season on the disabled list. Price hasn’t pitched since feeling discomfort two weeks ago and will not need surgery, leaving him with a fairly open timetable for his return.

San Francisco's rotation battle, injured stars returning, and Scott Kazmir is hurting again.

Giants' fifth starter battle is clash of opposites

The battle for the Giants’ last rotation spot is shaping up to be a classic of the genre: the veteran versus the rookie. Matt Cain and Ty Blach are the two pitchers vying to be the team’s fifth starter, and Monday saw both of them in action—with Blach taking over for Cain in the fourth inning and allowing an inherited runner to score. After the outing, manager Bruce Bochy noted that the rotation spot belongs to Cain if he’s healthy. But the past few years have shown that the if there is a rather important qualifier for the 32-year-old, who has spent much of the last three seasons on the disabled list and hasn’t passed the 90-inning mark in that time.

David Wright is hurting again, the Nationals are looking at Angel Pagan, and the Reds' bullpen might be interesting.

Wright indefinitely sidelined again

On Monday, this column opened with the news that Josh Hamilton’s attempt at a comeback would be derailed by knee surgery. Today has a similarly sad story for another veteran—David Wright, who has been diagnosed with a shoulder impingement that makes his Opening Day availability “questionable,” per the New York Daily News. Being healthy in time for the start of the season already looked to be an uphill climb for Wright, battling back from a season where he’d been sidelined first by spinal stenosis and then by neck surgery.

Manfred and MLB hope to push ahead with rule changes

Commissioner Rob Manfred announced Tuesday that there will be no major rule changes for the upcoming season, but several could be in line for 2018—whether or not the players’ association is willing to agree to them. Most of these discussed rule changes are aimed at improving the pace of play, such as adding a pitch clock, limiting mound visits, and changing the strike zone.

MLB is considering strike zone changes, the Yankees are out of payroll space, and the Nationals want a closer.

Yankees open to trading veterans to clear payroll space

The Yankees have tried and failed to trade veteran position players Brett Gardner, Starlin Castro, and Chase Headley this winter, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. The goal there was to clear a bit of payroll space to make a bullpen addition, but with no takers so far they’ve had to hold tight. It’s not particularly surprising that no other clubs have expressed interest in any of the trio—each has $25 million or more remaining on his contract and each is coming off a season that was lackluster at best.

Tampa Bay wants Jurickson Profar, Minnesota wants bullpen help, and Bronson Arroyo and Justin Masterson want to keep pitching.

Rangers and Rays discussing Profar

The Rays have “checked in with” the Rangers on the possibility of a trade for Jurickson Profar, according to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News. The conversation is only exploratory so far, but the need is clear: the Rays have a hole at second base after sending Logan Forsythe to the Dodgers last week. Though Brad Miller is an obvious in-house solution there—another position switch for him, after he moved from short to first midseason last year to accommodate the the Matt Duffy trade—the team’s apparently not closing the door on other choices just yet.

Texas may want to party at Napoli's again, relievers are playing musical chairs, and the status of Yordano Ventura's contract is uncertain.

Rangers still interested in Napoli

A reunion for Mike Napoli and the Rangers could still be in the cards, but Texas is only willing to go in if it’s on a one-year deal, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney. It’s a familiar situation for Napoli, who was reportedly in back-and-forth negotiations with Cleveland over the same terms earlier this winter, before the team signed Edwin Encarnacion to replace him.
