    Blue Jays' Mitch White: Lands on 15-day injured list
    2m ago

    White was placed on the 15-day injured list by the Blue Jays on Thursday with right elbow inflammation, Keegan Matheson of reports.

    White has dealt with both shoulder and elbow issues this spring and it's unclear when he might be available as an option for the Jays. He's out of options, so White will rejoin the big club when healthy whether that's as a reliever or part of the rotation.

    Rangers' Robbie Grossman: Homers from left side
    5m ago

    Grossman started in right field went 1-for-3 with a walk and a three-run home run in Thursday's 11-7 win over Philadelphia.

    Grossman's three-run shot was part of the Rangers' nine-run fourth inning and tied the game after Texas had fallen behind 5-0. The switch-hitting Grossman launched it from the left side, which is supposed to be his weaker side. He's expected to serve as the team's primary left fielder -- he moved there later in the game -- but center fielder Leody Taveras' oblique injury may upset lineup plans early on. Adolis Garcia started in center while Josh Smith manned left field.

    Nationals' Victor Robles: Shows patience to begin season
    7m ago

    Robles went 1-for-2 with two walks and a run scored in an Opening Day loss to Atlanta.

    The center fielder drew only 17 walks in 132 games last season and carries a career .307 OBP, so Robles' sudden display of patience to begin the 2023 campaign is encouraging. His offensive production has cratered the last three years, but he's still only 25 years old, and his athletic ability has never been in question. An improved approach at the plate could allow Robles to regain at least some of the form that saw him slug 17 homers and steal 28 bases back in 2019, but he'll need more than one good game to get back on the fantasy radar in most formats.

    Ryu was placed on the 15-day injured list by the Blue Jays on Thursday with a left elbow UCL tear, Scott Mitchell of reports.

    While he's only going on the 15-day IL for now, Ryu should eventually move to the 60-day IL when the Jays need the 40-man roster spot. The left-hander is hoping to make it back from Tommy John surgery by July.

    Nationals' Dominic Smith: On base three times Thursday
    13m ago

    Smith went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Thursday's loss to Atlanta.

    Not much went right for the Nationals on Opening Day, and an argument could be made that the team's best offensive player was the Sun after Washington's first two hits came on pop-ups that got lost by Atlanta fielders. Smith is a credible alternative though, as he reached base three times in his Nats debut. The 27-year-old has seen more than 200 plate appearances in a season only once in his career, but he should get every chance to fulfill the promise he flashed on occasion as a Met after being a first-round pick in 2013.
