Boston Red Sox OFs Ryan Sweeney, Daniel Nava, Mike Carp and Jackie Bradley are basically fighting for the last two roster spots. Sweeney can opt out of his contract if he doesn't make the roster. Manager John Farrell wouldn't indicate how good of a chance Bradley has at making the team.
Fantasy Tip: Bradley should already be owned in most AL-only and keeper leagues because of his play this spring and because he's a serious opening day roster candidate. He's worth an end-game gamble in deep mixed leagues if he makes the squad.

The Milwaukee Brewers are not in the mix to trade for Seattle Mariners OF Mike Carp, who was designated for assignment last week, according to a major league source. The Brewers will first examine their internal options to play first base with 1B Mat Gamel (knee) out for the year and 1B Corey Hart (knee) to miss the start of the season. Milwaukee's internal options are INFs Taylor Green, Hunter Morris and Alex Gonzalez. If the team isn't satisfied with those options, they could look at a free agent on a minor league deal.

The Milwaukee Brewers may be in the market after losing 1B Mat Gamel (knee) for the rest of the season.
