      Diamondbacks' Silvino Bracho: Returns to Triple-A
      5m ago

      Silvino Bracho was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Monday.

      The 24-year-old has pitched well across multiple stints with the Arizona Diamondbacks in June, having allowed one run on four hits and striking out six over seven innings of work. Bracho earned a spot on the Opening Day roster but has now been optioned to Triple-A six times in 2017, and likely remains near the top of the list should Arizona need a fresh arm.

    • Corey Seager LAD SS
      Dodgers' Corey Seager: Still out of lineup, should avoid disabled list
      15m ago

      Corey Seager (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Monday against the Angels but is not expected to go on the disabled list, SBNation.com reports.

      Seager is at roughly 80 percent, manager Dave Roberts said. He was able to do agility drills and running on the field, but for now, he will be held to pinch hit duties alone. He is not out of the woods yet, but the Los Angeles Dodgers are working hard to ensure a disabled list is not necessary for their star shortstop.

      Yankees' Starlin Castro: Dealing with right hamstring strain
      20m ago

      Starlin Castro left Monday's game with a right hamstring strain, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

      The severity of the strain remains to be determined. It's possible Castro could avoid a disabled list stint if the injury is minor enough, but anything Grade 2 or more severe will likely require him to sit out at least a couple of weeks.

      Cubs' Matthew Carasiti: Dealt to Cubs
      29m ago

      Matt Carasiti was traded to the Chicago Cubs on Monday in exchange for lefty reliever Zac Rosscup.

      Carasiti got rocked during a 19-games stint in the majors last season, as he allowed a 9.19 ERA and 2.30 WHIP over just 15.2 innings of work. He has bounced back at Triple-A, though, where he owns a 2.37 ERA with 43 strikeouts over just 30.1 innings of relief this season. The Cubs will take a flyer on him as they add right-handed organizational depth to their bullpen.

    • Trayce Thompson LAD CF
      Dodgers' Trayce Thompson: Rejoins major-league club
      32m ago

      Trayce Thompson was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday.

      The 26-year-old was briefly with Los Angeles in mid-April and went hitless in eight at-bats with three strikeouts. The Los Angeles Dodgers ' outfielder has struggled in Oklahoma City this season with a .211/.273/.377 slash line and seven home runs in 223 at-bats, and will likely see limited opportunities as an extra outfielder and pinch hitter with the big-league club.

      Yankees' Starlin Castro: Leaves game after apparent injury running out grounder
      1h ago

      Starlin Castro pulled up after attempting to leg out an infield single and was removed from the game with an apparent injury, Brendan Kuty of New Jersey Advance Media reports.

      Castro needed assistance from the trainer as he limped off the field. The New York Yankees training staff will need to examine him before we know for sure, but this one sounds like it could be a serious injury. Rob Refsnyder replaced Castro at second base for the Yankees.

      Aaron Colvin (lower leg) missed the entire offseason program, Brian Jackson of WJXT Jacksonville reports.

      Colvin, who landed on injured reserve after Week 15 due to an ankle injury, was seen wearing a walking boot during OTAs. However, it doesn't appear as if he'll be out of commission much longer, as Colvin is expected to be ready in time for training camp next month.

      Barry Church was revealed to be dealing with a back injury, USA Today's Jay Johnson reports.

      Church reportedly sustained the back injury in the early goings of the Jacksonville Jaguars ' offseason program, which is the issue that prevented him from taking part in OTAs and minicamp. However, his limitations were said to be precautionary and Church should be good to go for training camp.

      Brian Cushing (shoulder) is still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, Alex Del Barrio of CBS Houston reports.

      Cushing was given days off during OTAs as he's still working his way back from January shoulder surgery. Expect the Houston Texans to continue to be cautious with their starting linebacker until the regular season rolls around.

      Demetri Goodson (knee - ACL) is ahead of schedule in his recovery, Michael Cohen of the Green Bay Post-Gazette reports.

      Goodson tore his ACL in gruesome fashion last November but is already back on the field working with a trainer on the sidelines. After it was thought he might not be ready in time for the start of the 2017 season, the Baylor product is now eyeing a return for the middle of training camp.

      Billy Turner sustained a "semi-high ankle sprain" on the first day of OTAs, Ben Swanson of the Denver Broncos ' official site reports.

      Turner initially needed a walking boot to move about but he's now able to walk on his own. He should be ready to go in time for the opening of next month's training camp.

    • Cameron Erving CLE C
      Browns' Cameron Erving: Switching to right tackle
      3h ago

      Cameron Erving will transition to playing right tackle this season, Andrew Gribble of the Cleveland Browns ' official site reports. "I play football," Erving said. "At the end of the day, I'm professional and I have to roll with the punches wherever they may fall. I'm in a good position now and that's all I can think about."

      Erving will switch to his third position in as many seasons with the Browns, as the team looks to fill its right tackle slot -- the only line position not revamped this season in free agency. He'll be competing with Shon Coleman for reps throughout training camp. Erving has had stints at all five line positions for the Browns during his career but played at center for almost the entirety of the 2016 season.

      Bucks' Spencer Hawes: PIcks up player-option
      1h ago

      Spencer Hawes will pick up the player-option for his 2017-18 contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.

      Hawes will make $6 million in the final year of his deal. The veteran averaged 4.4 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.0 assists, and 0.5 triples across 9.0 minutes per game as a fringe-rotational player after being traded to Milwaukee in February. The Milwaukee Bucks drafted stretch-four D.J. Wilson out of Michigan with their first pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, and he projects to play a similar role with the club as Hawes. Thus, he will presumably have a hard time getting much regular rotation run in the upcoming season.

    • Jordan Hill MIN PF
      Timberwolves' Jordan Hill: Waived by Timberwolves
      5h ago

      Jordan Hill was waived by the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday, Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press reports.

      Hill's contract was non-guaranteed for next season if he was waived before the end of June, so the move isn't all that unexpected, especially after the Wolves acquired Jimmy Butler via trade on draft night. With Butler in tow and under contract for two more seasons, the Wolves are expected to ramp up their efforts to return to the postseason, which means clearing as much cap space as possible to pursue impact free agents this offseason. The 29-year-old Hill appeared in only seven games for the Wolves in 2016-17 after falling out of favor with coach Tom Thibodeau early in the year.

      Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Not yet cleared for on-court work

      Jusuf Nurkic (leg) is yet to be cleared for on-court work, Mike Richman of The Oregonian reports.

      Nurkic continues to work his way back from a lower-leg fracture, which kept him out of most of the Blazers' first-round series against Golden State. Back in late-April, Nurkic was given a timeline of 2-to-3 months, so with that in mind, he'll likely be back up to speed within the next few weeks. GM Neil Olshey said Monday that Nurkic is expected to be ready well before the start of camp in September.

      Trail Blazers' Allen Crabbe: Cleared for on-court work
      7h ago

      Allen Crabbe (foot) has been cleared for on-court work and is expected to be ready for training camp, Mike Richman of the Oregonian reports.

      Crabbe participated in all but two regular- season games for the Portland Trail Blazers , averaging 10.7 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.7 three-pointers across 28.5 minutes per contest. However, near the end of the season he suffered a stress reaction in his left foot, which required surgery in May. Crabbe has already progressed to the point where he can take part in on-court drills, so there's currently no concern over his availability for training camp. He's heading into the second year of a four-year, $74.8 million contract and is slated to pull in $19.3 million during the 2017-18 campaign alone, which suggests he should again take on a substantial role despite coming off a relatively disappointing showing this past year.

      Trail Blazers' Ed Davis: Cleared for on-court work
      7h ago

      Ed Davis (shoulder) has been cleared for on-court work and is expected to be ready for training camp, Mike Richman of the Oregonian reports.

      Davis was restricted to just 46 games during the 2016-17 campaign, with ankle, wrist and shoulder injuries all contributing to the missed time. Most recently, he underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder in March, but Davis now appears to be nearing a full recovery. He's already been cleared for on-court work, which likely means he'll be 100 percent for training camp. With an already crowded frontcourt that added Zach Collins in the 2017 NBA Draft, Davis should be slated for a reserve role off the bench, which could limit his overall upside as a fantasy option.

      Nets' K.J. McDaniels: Set to become unrestricted free agent
      22h ago

      Brooklyn reportedly plans to decline K.J. McDaniels ' team option making him an unrestricted free agent, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

      The 24-year-old is no stranger to packing his things and relocating despite only have played just three seasons in the league. McDaniels didn't necessarily struggle last season with the Brooklyn Nets , but he was far from impressive posting just 4.2 points per game and 1.7 rebounds per game. Now that Brooklyn has added D'Angelo Russell to the mix, McDaniels quickly becomes an expendable player for the club during their rebuild. It's likely he'll find a new home given his youth, but there's no telling how big or small of a role he'll assume until he does.

      Alex Chiasson: To become free agent
      4h ago

      Alex Chiasson wasn't extended a qualifying offer by the Flames and will become an unrestricted free agent, Kristen Odland of Postmedia reports.

      Chiasson played in 81 games for Calgary, notching 12 goals and 12 assists, which nearly doubled his production from the previous year. However, it was still a relatively disappointing season as a whole, which has resulted in him being let go. He can still negotiate a new deal with the Flames leading up to the start of free agency July 1, but after that he'll have the chance to sign elsewhere heading into his sixth year in the league.

      Andrej Nestrasil: Heads to free agency
      4h ago

      Andrej Nestrasil wasn't extended a qualifying offer by the Hurricanes and will become an unrestricted free agent, Chip Alexander of Raleigh News reports.

      Nestrasil saw his role decline this past year, going from 55 games played during the 2015 campaign to just 19 during the 2016 season. It appears he largely fell out of favor in Carolina, which makes it unsurprising that he failed to receive a qualifying offer. He'll look to latch on with a team in need of depth come the start of free agency July 1.

      Brett Connolly: Doesn't receive qualifying offer, still negotiating extension

      Brett Connolly was not extended a qualifying offer from the Blue Jackets, but he's fully expected to re-sign before the start of free agency, Mike Vogel of WashingtonCaps.com reports.

      Connolly went unprotected during the expansion draft and now failed to receive a qualifying offer, but he's still a solid depth option and the team would like to bring him back on a cap-friendly deal. Look for a deal to get done between the two sides prior to the start of free agency July 1. The 25-year-old recorded 15 goals and eight assists across 66 games in his first season in Washington.

      Oscar Dansk: Set to become free agent
      5h ago

      Oscar Dansk wasn't extended a qualifying offer from the Blue Jackets and will become an unrestricted free agent, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

      A second-round pick of the Blue Jackets back in 2012, Dansk has yet to see action in an NHL game, which likely led to his failure to receive a qualifying offer. The 23-year-old goalie will hope to find another team with which to further his development once free agency opens July 1, but he's unlikely to secure a significant role and there will plenty of options elsewhere for fantasy owners.

      Wade Megan signed a one-year, two-way contract with the St. Louis Blues on Monday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

      Megan saw action in his first three games of his NHL career with the Blues last season, but spent the majority of the year with AHL Chicago. In the AHL, Megan tallied 33 goals and 33 assists across 73 games, although it's unclear where exactly he'll see the most ice time during the upcoming campaign considering the Blues don't currently have their own sole affiliate.

      Eric Gelinas: Fails to receive qualifying offer

      Eric Gelinas wasn't extended a qualifying offer from the Avalanche and will become an unrestricted free agent, Renaud Lavoie of the Montreal Journal reports.

      Gelinas saw action in 27 games with the Avalanche during the 2016 campaign, notching one point, 32 hits and 16 blocked shots in limited playing time. He'll be free to negotiate with other teams once free agency opens at the start of July, but he's unlikely to find himself in a role that would turn him into a viable fantasy option.
