Arizona's Steven Souza suffers serious knee injury on Monday

Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Steven Souza suffered what appeared to be a serious knee injury on Monday night.

What It Means:

Souza scored on a Ketel Marte double but stumbled and fell to the ground clutching his knee. He was helped to his feet and required help to leave the field without putting any weight on his left leg. Expect more details to come out in the morning, but for now, it appears Souza could be facing a lengthy absence.

Before the injury, our models had Souza projected for 18 homers, 10 steals, 58 runs scored, and a .239 batting average in 527 plate appearances this season.

Walker Buehler will start on Sunday for the Dodgers

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Walker Buehler will start on Sunday versus the Arizona Diamondbacks.

What It Means:

Buehler made just one spring training start as the Dodgers try to limit the 23-year-old's innings workload. He threw just 60 pitches in a simulated game on Monday and is not likely to go far past 5 or 6 innings in his 2019 debut.

Our models project Buehler for a 3.20 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 176 strikeouts in 160 1/3 innings pitched in 2019.

Yu Darvish (blister) lined up to start Saturday for Chicago

Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Yu Darvish (blister) is expected to start on Saturday against the Texas Rangers, barring any setbacks.

What It Means:

Darvish left his last spring training start with a blister but was able to make it through a minor league game without an issue on Saturday. The former Ranger will continue to slot in behind Jon Lester as the number two starter on the Cubs, barring injuries this season.

Our models project Darvish for a 3.93 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 158 strikeouts in 139 2/3 innings pitched in 2019.

Jose Ramirez (knee) could play for Indians Opening Day

Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez (left knee contusion) fielded grounders at the club's spring training complex Monday.

What It Means:

Indians skipper Terry Francona said Ramirez is progressing, and while the third baseman's availability for Opening Day remains in the air, being on the field Monday is an encouraging sign. Barring a setback, Ramirez will likely be out there for Thursday's matchup with the Minnesota Twins. He's officially considered day-to-day.

numberFire's models currently expect Ramirez to bat .291 with 32 home runs, 94 RBI, 104 runs scored, and 24 steals across 664 plate appearances this season.

Cardinals' Carlos Martinez (shoulder) will begin season on 10-Day injured list

Saint Louis Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez (shoulder) will start the 2019 season on the 10-Day Injured List.

What It Means:

Despite resuming a throwing program in March, Martinez will not begin the season on the active roster after being placed on the 10-Day Injured List on Monday. Look for a more defined timeline for Martinez's return after he can prove to the team he is over his right rotator cuff issues.

For the 2019 season, our models project Martinez to produce a 3.70 ERA with 181 strikeouts in 179.9 innings pitched.
