Rangers announce seven roster cuts, suspension of LHP Yohander Mendez

Jumping ahead in this:

General manager Jon Daniels announced Wednesday the club has indefinitely suspended pitcher Yohander Mendez for a breach of his contract.

Daniels said Mendez sought unauthorized outside medical care with someone who was not on the Rangers’ approved medical practitioners list. When asked to elaborate, Daniels declined.

The suspension represents a second marred spring for Mendez—he sustained an elbow injury last spring that kept him out until early September. In just under five innings in 2019, Mendez posted a 5.79 ERA with eight strikeouts.

Trey Mancini To Undergo Non-Baseball Medical Procedure

Trey Mancini has left Orioles camp and is set to undergo a medical procedure unrelated to baseball, reports Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun. While manager Brandon Hyde shared as much with the media today, the Orioles have refrained from commenting further out of respect for Mancini’s privacy.

So while further details are unknown, Hyde added that Mancini would “miss some time” as a result of the procedure. As for a more precise timetable, we’ll have to wait and see. And with Opening Day just about three weeks away, Mancini’s status for the beginning of the season is up in the air, but concerns about roster construction seem secondary to Mancini’s overall health at this point.

From a baseball perspective, there’s arguably no player more critical to the Orioles’ roster than Mancini. He serves as the linchpin to an offense that scored the fifth-fewest runs in the American League last year, so removing him from the middle of the order could send the O’s offense into disarray. By all accounts, he’s regarded as a leader in the Baltimore clubhouse and has emerged as the undisputed face of the team.
