MLB Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Miley was injured Wednesday, exiting his start in the fifth inning after trying to field a bunt.
Impact: The team says an MRI showed a slight muscle tear in his left groin that will keep him from throwing for two weeks. The 31-year-old has been competing for a spot in Milwaukee's rotation.
News: The Reds have claimed Vargas off waivers from the Minnesota Twins.
Impact: The 27-year-old Vargas batted .253 with career highs of 11 home runs and 41 RBIs in 78 games last season. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound switch-hitter made all his starts with Minnesota at either first base or designated hitter.
News: Bundy has been picked to start the Baltimore Orioles' opener against Minnesota on March 29.
Impact: The 24-year-old right-hander led the Orioles in wins last season, when he was 13-9 with a 4.24 ERA. Bundy beat out Kevin Gausman, who started last year's opener, and Chris Tillman, the starter of the previous three. Last year was Bundy's first season in the rotation.
News: Souza has been diagnosed with a right pectoral strain and manager Torey Lovullo said that he will likely start the season on the disabled list.
Impact: This is disappointing news with Opening Day right around the corner as the Diamondbacks will likely start the year without one of their biggest offseason additions. Souza left Wednesday's Cactus League game with an upper-body injury that was initially believed to be shoulder-related, but it has since been determined that he's dealing with a pectoral injury. Once the Diamondbacks make a final decision on whether or not to place Souza on the DL, a firmer timetable should come into focus. Look for Jarrod Dyson and Yasmany Tomas to see the bulk of the starts in left field should Souza miss time to start the year.
News: Samardzija had an MRI on his shoulder Thursday and could begin the season on the disabled list, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
Impact: This is a potentially huge development for the Giants with just a week to go before Opening Day. According to Baggarly, Samardzija underwent the MRI earlier Thursday and is being examined further by team doctors. If Samardzija does start the season on the disabled list, Derek Holland would be the leading candidate to fill his spot in the rotation.
News: Logan is beginning the season on the DL because of a triceps injury.
News: Souza was diagnosed with a strained right shoulder following his departure from Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Giants. He'll undergo an MRI on Thursday.
Impact: Once the results of the MRI are read, the Diamondbacks should have a better idea on a recovery timetable for Souza, but for the time being, he'll be viewed as day-to-day. The injury is less-than-ideal timing with Opening Day a week away, so if Souza is forced to begin the season on the disabled list, more at-bats in left field would open up for Jarrod Dyson and Yasmany Tomas.
News: Arizona manager Torey Lovullo says Souza Jr. likely will open the season on the disabled list after straining his right pectoral muscle while diving for a baseball in a spring training game Wednesday night.
Impact: Lovullo says Souza will be out "a couple of weeks at least." The extent of the injury was discovered in an MRI on Thursday. Lovullo said the top two internal candidates to replace Souza in right field are Chris Owings and Jarrod Dyson.
