Milwaukee Brewers SS Yuniesky Betancourt signed one-year major league deal that will be worth up to $1.4 million, including incentives, Tuesday, March 26. 3B Donnie Murphy has been told that he won't make the roster as a result. "We signed a veteran guy (in Betancourt) who we have a lot of familiarity with," general manager Doug Melvin said. "Since we're going to have Alex (Gonzalez) play a lot of first base early in the season, Yuni gives us a guy who can play multiple infield positions. He did a really good job last year with Kansas City in that role." Betancourt could also chip in in the outfield to start the year.

SS | Jed Lowrie | Oakland Athletics | Fantasy
The Oakland Athletics are seriously considering sending SS Hiroyuki Nakajima to the minors to start the season. He's hitless in eight straight spring games and is batting only .150. Nakajima clearly hasn't been comfortable, and the team wants him in a groove before he plays in major league games that count. SS Jed Lowrie would likely start at shortstop if Nakajima is sent down. 2B Scott Sizemore is the leading candidate to win the second base job after playing well lately. INFs Eric Sogard and Adam Rosales remain in the mix as well at the keystone.

SS | Jurickson Profar | Texas Rangers | Transaction, Fantasy
The Texas Rangers will have SS Jurickson Profar begin the season at Triple-A Round Rock, with INF Leury Garcia serving as the utility infielder.

SS | Derek Jeter | New York Yankees | Injury, Fantasy
New York Yankees SS Derek Jeter (ankle) is coming to the realization that he won't be ready for opening day this year. "It's a setback for opening day, but it's not a setback in terms of the recovery process," Jeter said. "I heard from the doctor yesterday. It's supposed to happen. Some things you can't control. It's a normal recovery process." He could be activated as early as April 6, however.

3B | David Wright | New York Mets | Injury, Fantasy
New York Mets 3B David Wright (intercostal) went 1-for-5 as the designated hitter in minor league action Tuesday, March 26, his first game action since March 12 in the World Baseball Classic. He is expected to play in another minor league game Thursday, March 28. "I've been optimistic about opening day since I came back to St. Lucie and I talked with the doctors and the trainers about the diagnosis. As I said yesterday, it's kind of the same thing today: It's another step closer. I'm still very optimistic," Wright said.

3B | Taylor Green | Milwaukee Brewers | Injury, Transaction, Fantasy,

3B | Kevin Youkilis | New York Yankees | Fantasy
The New York Yankees prefer to leave 3B Kevin Youkilis at third base with 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) out. OF Juan Rivera will see the majority of playing time at first base, but the Yanks also have 1B Dan Johnson and are considering options outside the organization.

3B | David Freese | St. Louis Cardinals | Injury, Fantasy
St. Louis Cardinals 3B David Freese (back) can return to action April 7 because the team will backdate his disabled list stint. The team is targeting April 8, the home opener, for Freese's season debut. Freese has only 16 at-bats since bruising his tailbone March 4.

He remains optimistic he'll be ready to play on Opening Day against the Kansas City Royals April 1. "There's nothing. There's just pain. There's nothing to be worried about," Rios said. He reiterated he did not suffer the injury during his time with Team Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic.

OF | Dayan Viciedo | Chicago White Sox | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
Chicago White Sox OF Dayan Viciedo is prepared for his second straight season as the team's left fielder. However, he has played third base, first base and right field during his time with the team, and he could move back to first base depending on the moves made with 1Bs Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko in the near future. "He certainly has the ability to play first if we needed that at some point down the road," general manager Rick Hahn said Tuesday, March 26. "Again, given that we do have some outfield depth coming that hopefully continues to develop the way it has been developing, that could be an option."

OF | Will Venable | San Diego Padres | Injury, Fantasy

OF | Carlos Beltran | St. Louis Cardinals | Injury, Fantasy
St. Louis Cardinals OF Carlos Beltran (toe) played six-plus innings Tuesday, March 26, and had a single, two walks and a stolen base. He expects his fractured right small big toe to give him pain for some time, but he didn't have any limitations Tuesday. "He promised me that he was fine," manager Mike Matheny said afterward. "He ran really hard on that first ground ball and turned around and smiled at me. I think he was happy to get back in there. My concern wasn't as much (hitting) as watching his movements. He was running well." Beltran plans to play on his injured toe as long as the pain is tolerable.

OF | Carlos Quentin | San Diego Padres | Injury, Fantasy
San Diego Padres OF Carlos Quentin (knee) was happy with the way his knee felt Tuesday, March 26. "I feel more and more like a player who can be counted on every day," he said.

SP | Dylan Axelrod | Chicago White Sox | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy,
Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura officially named SP Dylan Axelrod as the team's fifth starter, taking over for the injured SP John Danks (shoulder). Ventura wants Axelrod to pitch free and easy. "I don't want him throwing every pitch thinking this is going to cost him next week or the next five days," Ventura said. "Let him go out and pitch and figure it out after." Pitching coach Don Cooper wants Axelrod to throw in the 90-pitch range in one of the road exhibition games against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park Friday, March 29, or Saturday, March 30.

SP | Chris Sale | Chicago White Sox | Fantasy,
Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale and C Hector Gimenez worked together in Sale's final Cactus League spring start Tuesday, March 26, and they focused on getting ready for Sale's first career Opening Day start Monday, April 1, against the Kansas City Royals. Sale and Gimenez decided to utilize the changeup. "Yeah, it felt good, especially to lefties," Sale said. "Hector told me before the game that we were going to throw a lot more changeups. He said that these guys have seen your breaking ball and haven't been quite on your changeup and haven't seen it as much."

SP | Andrew Cashner | San Diego Padres | Injury, Fantasy,
San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner (thumb) allowed one run, three hits and two walks over four-plus innings in a Cactus League spring start Tuesday, March 26. He threw 72 pitches with his velocity ranging from 94-97 miles per hour. "We like the fact he is healthy. The thumb is not an issue. He is throwing the ball well. He could be in the rotation or the pen, but the long-term plan is as a starter," manager Bud Black said. "The velocity was good today, the changeup was good."

SP | Chad Billingsley | Los Angeles Dodgers | Injury, Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy,
The Los Angeles Dodgers want to have the option of placing SP Chad Billingsley (finger) on the 15-day disabled list retroactively to March 22.

Haren wasn't discouraged by the way he pitched, though. "He found out which hitters he didn't want to come in on," manager Davey Johnson said, laughing. "He got his work. He finished up the spring in good shape. He'll be ready to go." One scout said Haren looked better than he did earlier this spring.

SP | Daniel Hudson | Arizona Diamondbacks | Injury, Fantasy,

SP | Liam Hendriks | Minnesota Twins | Injury, Fantasy,
Minnesota Twins SP Liam Hendriks (hand) left his outing early after being hit on his right hand by a line drive Tuesday, March 26. He's considered day-to-day.

SP | John Lackey | Boston Red Sox | Injury, Fantasy,
Boston Red Sox SP John Lackey (elbow) fully expects to enter the season as the No. 4 starter in the rotation.

But it's gone pretty good, I'm pretty happy with where my stuff is." He's on track to make his season debut April 6 against the Toronto Blue Jays.

SP | Aaron Laffey | New York Mets | Injury, Fantasy,
Updating previous items, New York Mets SP Aaron Laffey is expected to enter the season as the team's No. 5 starter in place of SP Shaun Marcum (neck, shoulder).

SP | Chris Capuano | Los Angeles Dodgers | Fantasy,
Los Angeles Dodgers SP Chris Capuano pitched seven scoreless innings against minor leaguers Tuesday, March 26, but he's unlikely to have a spot in the five-man rotation to open the season. Capuano could be sent to the bullpen or traded.

SP | Jonathan Sanchez | Pittsburgh Pirates | Injury, Transaction, Fantasy,
The Pittsburgh Pirates added 3B Brandon Inge (shoulder) and SP Jonathan Sanchez to the opening day roster Tuesday, March 26. Sanchez will be the team's No. 4 starter because SP Jeff Karstens (shoulder) is dealing with a sore shoulder. "In spring training, he's looked much closer to the guy he was in 2011 and '10 than the guy who struggled in '12," general manager Neal Huntington said. "Jonathan's last two starts have been very encouraging. The offspeed pitches have been very effective and the fastball command has been good." Inge could open on the disabled list with a bone bruise in his right shoulder. He's played in only four games since being hit by a pitch March 14.

SP | Chris Young | free agent | Free Agents, Fantasy,
The New York Mets are discussing possibly signing free-agent SP Chris Young (Nationals) with SP Shaun Marcum (neck) nursing injuries. However, a team source said it's unlikely to happen. SPs Aaron Laffey or Collin McHugh could fill in for Marcum in the rotation if need be.

SP | Samuel Deduno | Minnesota Twins | Injury, Transaction, Fantasy,

SP | Wily Peralta | Milwaukee Brewers | Fantasy,
Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse will make $4 million this year with $7 million deferred to 2016-2018, plus $11 million in each of the 2014 and 2015 seasons. He can make an extra $1.05 million in performance bonuses; $350,000 each for the three seasons that he tops 190 innings. The team is already set in their rotation with SPs Yovani Gallardo, Marco Estrada, Wily Peralta, Chris Narveson and Mike Fiers. They may choose to carry Lohse as part of their 13-man staff to begin the year, and Lohse said he should be game-ready shortly. Fiers and Peralta have minor league options left, so they are the most likely to be bumped from the rotation to make room for Lohse when he's ready. Both young pitchers have struggled this spring, too.

SP | Aaron Cook | free agent | Transaction
The Philadelphia Phillies released SP Aaron Cook.

Relief Pitcher

RP | Chris Perez | Cleveland Indians | Injury, Fantasy,
