    • Eric Fryer STL C
      Cardinals' Eric Fryer: Minimal playing time
      11m ago

      Eric Fryer has one hit in only seven at-bats in the month of May.

      Playing time was always going to be scarce as Yadier Molina's backup, but Fryer has only a single at-bat since May 8. The 31-year-old catcher's .185/.267/.259 slash line in 27 at-bats this season is providing the St. Louis Cardinals little reason to give Molina more rest.

      Blue Jays' Troy Tulowitzki: Goes hitless in rehab game
      16m ago

      Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) went 0-for-2 with a walk in Monday's rehab game at High-A Dunedin, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

      The Toronto Blue Jays have been reluctant to provide a specific date since Tulowitzki's rehab ran longer than expected last Thursday. There is no indication that Tulowitzki's hamstring injury is lingering, so expect him back for the Blue Jays sometime this week.

      Marlins' Dustin McGowan: Eating innings for last-place Miami
      34m ago

      Dustin McGowan has allowed 10 earned runs across 22.2 innings out of the Miami Marlins ' bullpen this season.

      The veteran right-hander has given up four runs on nine hits and four walks over 9.2 innings in May, and the Marlins have lost the past six games in which he's appeared. McGowan is largely relegated to mop-up duty at this point, but those opportunities could be plentiful if Miami continues to struggle.

      Marlins' A.J. Ellis: Role as backup unlikely to change
      38m ago

      A.J. Ellis has managed only five hits in 37 at-bats so far this season.

      The 36-year-old tends to start day games that follow a night game, and with J.T. Realmuto putting together another good season, it's unlikely we'll see a change behind the plate for the Miami Marlins . Ellis is slashing .135/.220/.135 with one RBI, and he has been utilized as a pinch hitter only twice this year.

      Indians' Corey Kluber: Cleared for Thursday rehab start
      2h ago

      Corey Kluber (back) will head out on a rehab assignment at Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, MLB.com reports.

      Kluber is expected to throw 70 to 75 pitches in his first start for Columbus, and how he feels after that will determine his path going forward. If all goes well, look for Kluber to make a return to Cleveland's rotation in the first week of June.

      White Sox's Nate Jones: Throws in simulated game Monday

      Nate Jones (elbow) took part in a simulated game Monday, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

      The fact that Jones was able to bounce back from throwing 24 pitches in a bullpen session Friday and throw in a simulated game on just two days of rest is an encouraging sign that he's almost ready to return. We'll have to wait and see whether the Chicago White Sox decide to send him on a rehab assignment before we know the next step, but Jones could potentially return within the week.

      Bryan Walters (foot) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

      Walters recently hurt his foot in the Jacksonville Jaguars ' offseason program. He should be able to retain his role as a punt returner on special teams if he can get healthy in time for the regular season.

      Harris attended the Saints' three-day rookie minicamp on a tryout basis and showed enough potential to land a contract. He'll look to secure a depth role, likely at tackle, ahead of the season opener.

      Warriors' Patrick McCaw: Will start at small forward in Game 4
      45m ago

      Patrick McCaw will start at small forward for Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Spurs, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

      The Golden State Warriors went with JaVale McGee as a starter in place of Zaza Pachulia (knee) during Game 3, but will move to a smaller lineup featuring McCaw, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green in the frontcourt. McCaw will likely see an increase in playing time after logging just 11 minutes during Game 3, which should come with a temporary boost in his fantasy value as well.

      Warriors' JaVale McGee: Will move back to bench for Game 4
      1h ago

      JaVale McGee will return to the bench for Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Spurs, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

      McGee was very effective in limited playing time during his Game 3 start, posting 16 points in just 13 minutes while filling in for Zaza Pachulia (heel). While Pachulia remains sidelined, the Golden State Warriors will go with a slightly smaller lineup featuring Draymond Green at center and Patrick McCaw at small forward. McGee shouldn't see a huge decrease in minutes despite the move to the bench.

    • Zaza Pachulia GS C
      Warriors' Zaza Pachulia: Ruled out for Game 4
      2h ago

      Zaza Pachulia (heel) has been ruled out for Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals on Monday against the Spurs, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports.

      Pachulia continues to work his way back from a bruised heel, but with the Golden State Warriors owning a 3-0 lead in the series and on the brink of eliminating the Spurs, they're going to play it safe with Pachulia and give him another game off for rest. JaVale McGee is expected to start at center for the second straight contest after recording 16 points, one rebound and a block across 13 minutes during Game 3. That said, the Warriors are also considering going small with Draymond Green at center and promoting Patrick McCaw to the top unit, so it will be a situation to monitor up until tip off.

    • Kawhi Leonard SA SF
      Spurs' Kawhi Leonard: Out for Game 4 vs. Warriors
      3h ago

      Kawhi Leonard (ankle) has been ruled out for Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals on Monday against the Warriors, Paul Garcia of Project San Antonio Spurs reports.

      Coach Gregg Popovich indicated earlier in the week that Leonard was unlikely to play Monday, so this latest update comes as no surprise. With the Warriors boasting a commanding 3-0 lead and on the brink of eliminating the Spurs, this could mean the end of Leonard's season after averaging 25.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.8 steals across 33.1 minutes during the 2016-17 campaign. Look for Jonathon Simmons to start a third straight game in Leonard's place Monday, with guys like Kyle Anderson and Manu Ginobili potentially picking up some extra run as well.

      Celtics' Amir Johnson: Will have MRI performed on shoulder
      7h ago

      Amir Johnson was held out of Monday's practice and is expected to have an MRI performed on his right shoulder, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports.

      Johnson moved back into the starting lineup for Game 3 on Sunday, but eventually hurt his shoulder, which limited him to a total of nine minutes. The Boston Celtics are going to have Johnson go in for an MRI to make sure he's not dealing with something more serious and that should give us a better indication for how long it could keep him on the sidelines. For now, consider Johnson questionable going into Game 4 on Tuesday, with another update likely coming following his MRI.

      Andre Iguodala (knee) will play in Monday's Game 4 against the Spurs, Anthony Slater of the Bay Area News Group reports.

      This comes as no surprise given that Iguodala was listed as probable following Sunday's practice, and the swingman is expected to be a full go for Monday's contest. Iguodala will once again serve as a key reserve as the Golden State Warriors look to close out the series against the Spurs Monday night, and he'll likely return to playing his regular dose of around 25-plus minutes.

      Ducks' John Gibson: Unavailable for Game 6

      John Gibson (lower body) is out of the lineup for Monday's Game 6 in Nashville, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

      As such, Jonathan Bernier will make his first career postseason start, while Jhonas Enroth will suit up for backup duty. Gibson went on record Saturday saying he thought he'd be good to go for Monday's elimination contest, but given that he's not even healthy enough to dress, his status for a potential Game 7 on Wednesday seems murky at this point.

      Jonathan Bernier will be between the pipes for Monday's Game 6 against the Predators, Adam Vingan of The Tennesseean reports.

      With John Gibson (lower body) unable to even dress for the contest, Bernier will make his first career playoff start. It's hard to fathom a more stressful scenario to do so, as the Anaheim Ducks are down 3-2 facing elimination in the series on enemy ice where the home team has been dynamite in the postseason. Jhonas Enroth will dress as the backup.

      Senators' Derick Brassard: Good to go for Game 6
      6h ago

      Derick Brassard , who sat out the third period of Sunday's game to rest an undisclosed ailment, will play in Tuesday's Game 6 against the Penguins, Sportsnet reports.

      It would take a lot for any player to sit out a game of this stature, so it shouldn't come as a huge surprise that he's already ruled in for the contest. He had little need to take his shifts in Sunday's blowout loss, but will look to get back on track as the Ottawa Senators attempt to stave off elimination in Game 6. He's tallied just three points in the team's last 11 playoff games, but was pivotal in the team's first-round matchup with Boston, notching eight points in six games. Brassard possesses the ability to make a large impact in playoff pools and may need to if the Senators are to advance.

      Coach Guy Boucher indicated after Monday's practice session that Cody Ceci will play in Tuesday's Game 6 against the Penguins, Sportsnet reports.

      Ceci didn't appear in the third period of Game 5 due to an undisclosed issue and didn't practice Monday, but it appears he's no worse for the wear. Considering the contest was a blowout, it shouldn't be a surprise that Ceci rested his ailment. Unless something drastically changes over the next day, the blueliner should take his normal spot in the pairings as the Ottawa Senators attempt to force a Game 7.

      Predators' Craig Smith: Could return Monday
      6h ago

      Craig Smith (undisclosed) was a full participant at Monday's game-day practice and could be available against Anaheim, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.

      Even if Smith is unable to give it a go for Game 6, practicing in full should be taken as a good sign that he is nearing a return and could bee in action sooner rather than later. The Preds have been ravaged by injuries during the playoffs -- including Mike Fisher (undisclosed), Ryan Johansen (thigh) and Kevin Fiala (leg) -- so getting back the 27-year-old Smith would be a real shot in the arm for Nashville regardless of whether that happens Monday or in a potential Game 7.

      Predators' Mike Fisher: Not ready to return
      7h ago

      Mike Fisher (undisclosed) will not suit up for Monday's meeting with the Ducks, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.

      With Fisher still sidelined, the Preds are suddenly very thin down the middle of their lineup having previously lost Ryan Johansen (thigh) for the rest of the postseason. Despite averaging just under 17 minutes per game, Fisher is scoreless in his 14 playoff appearances. While Nashville hasn't needed the 36-year-old in the offensive zone thus far, it could be a different story if the team hopes to lift Lord Stanley's Cup.
