3/19/2019 Dellin Betances, NYY, P
Betances has inflammation in his right shoulder and will start the regular season on the injured list. New York general manager Brian Cashman said an MRI was done on Betances on Tuesday after the 6-8, 265-pound right-hander continued to lack velocity in his fastball.

Analysis: Betances, who normally reached the upper 90s, has topped at 92 or 93 mph throughout spring training. Betances said he will not throw for three to five days, but doesn't think it's a long-term issue.
3/19/2019 Dustin Pedroia, Bos, 2B
Pedroia will start the season on the injured list.

Analysis: The 2008 AL MVP is still recovering from left knee surgery. He was limited to just three games last season and 105 in 2017.
3/18/2019 Alex Wood, Cin, P
The Cincinnati Reds expect left-hander Alex Wood to open the season on the disabled list as he recovers from a sore back that has limited him during spring training.

Analysis: Wood was part of the trade that brought outfielders Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp to Cincinnati from the Dodgers. He made one spring training start before his back tightened, and he had a setback when he resumed throwing last week.
3/18/2019 A.J. Minter, Atl, P
Minter is experiencing left shoulder soreness and is expected to miss the first week of the season.

Analysis: Minter has some fantasy value out of the bullpen. He excelled when Arodys Vizcaino went down last season, converting 15-of-17 save opportunities.
3/17/2019 Aaron Hicks, NYY, CF
Hicks had a second cortisone shot for his ailing back and will not be ready for opening day.

Analysis: Hicks was hurt while taking batting practice on March 1. New York manager Aaron Boone didn't rule out Hicks returning during the second week of the season. The Yankees signed Hicks to a seven-year, $70 million deal last month after he set career highs with 27 home runs and 79 RBIs in 137 games in 2018.
3/16/2019 Bryce Harper, Phi, RF
Harper was out of the Philadelphia Phillies lineup for Saturday's game against the Houston Astros, one day after sustaining a bruised right ankle when hit by a pitch. Manager Gabe Kapler says he has no concerns about Harper being ready for opening day on March 28 against the Atlanta Braves. X-rays were negative and Harper is listed as day to day.

Analysis: The slugging outfielder clutched his ankle and stayed on the ground for a few moments. Harper was checked by a trainer, limped toward the dugout with assistance and hobbled toward the clubhouse.
3/15/2019 J.D. Martinez, Bos, RF
Martinez was back in the lineup, two days after being scratched because of back tightness. Martinez went 1 for 3 and played five innings in right field as the Red Sox lost 14-1 to the New York Yankees on Friday. He singled to shallow right and hit a pair of grounders.

Analysis: Martinez is hitting just .105 (2 for 19) with no homers in seven games. He failed to homer in 49 plate appearances during spring training last year, then went deep 43 times during the regular season. The home run total was the most by Red Sox player in his first season with the club.
3/14/2019 Michael Fulmer, Det, P
The Tigers said Tuesday on Twitter that surgery to reconstruct the ulnar collateral ligament in Fulmer's elbow has been recommended following an MRI exam and a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews.

Analysis: Fulmer, who experienced elbow soreness during a recent bullpen session, will seek a third opinion. Fulmer won AL Rookie of the Year honors in 2016 but has struggled to return to that form. He was 3-12 with a 4.69 ERA last year, his season cut short in mid-September because of knee problems.
