RUMORS, SPECULATION, NEWS, ETC.

- Angels: OF Mike Trout hasn't set a deadline for a contract extension and would permit talks to continue after the start of the regular season. (Mike DiGiovanna, Los Angeles Times)

- Brewers: GM Doug Melvin will soon meet with owner Mark Attanasio to discuss offering a multi-year extension to 24-year-old shortstop Jean Segura. (Tom Haudricourt, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

- Braves: RHP Brandon Beachy will visit Dr. James Andrews on Monday and may be facing a second Tommy John surgery ... C Evan Gattis has revealed that underwent knee surgery last October. That's why the Braves have been limiting his time behind the plate this spring. (David O'Brien, Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

- Tigers: SS Jose Iglesias is now questionable for opening day because of ongoing shin problems.
