  • Jandel Gustave HOU RP
    Astros' Jandel Gustave: In battle for final bullpen spot
    41m ago

    Jandel Gustave and James Hoyt will battle for the final spot in the bullpen over the final week of spring training, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Each reliever will at least once over the final three Grapefruit League games as well as an inning in one of the two exhibition game against the Cubs on Thursday and Friday in Houston. A decision is not expected to come until late in the week. From a pure numbers perspective Gustave has been the better pitcher during spring training, but the eventual winner will be the one who pitches more effectively against left-handers. That skill favors Hoyt and his split-fingered fastball.

    Twins' Eddie Rosario: Hot at plate after returning from WBC
    44m ago

    Eddie Rosario went 3-for-3 in Sunday's spring training loss to Boston. He's 5-for-6 since returning from playing for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic.

    Rosario is set to begin the season as the starting left fielder. Rosario's woeful plate discipline leaves his batting average volatile, but the lefty hitter boasts the potential for double-digit home runs and stolen bases.

    Twins' Benji Gonzalez: Won't make 25-man roster
    1h ago

    Benji Gonzalez has been told he won't make Minnesota's final 25-man roster, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Gonzalez hit .371 (13-for-35) and made a strong impression in spring training. He could be called up early in the season if the Minnesota Twins need a utility infielder.

    Matt Hague has been told he won't make Minnesota's final 25-man roster, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Hague has a good spring as he he's hitting .359, but he'll need to prove himself in the minors after producing a .685 OPS with the Hanshin Tigers in Japan last year.

    Dodgers' Scott Kazmir: Likely won't start season in majors
    1h ago

    Scott Kazmir (hip) is not likely to open the season with the Los Angeles Dodgers , Andy McCullough of the LA Times reports.

    Per the report, manager Dave Roberts "said it 'doesn't make sense' for (Scott) Kazmir to break camp in the rotation. He'll need time in rehab setting to get right." Kazmir's velocity has been down too far from his regular level, which necessitates the aforementioned rehab time. Based on the news, it seems likely that the 33-year-old will open the season with Triple-A Oklahoma City before making his official Dodger debut once he's back to normal.

    Twins' Ben Paulsen: Won't make 25-man roster
    1h ago

    Ben Paulsen (calf) struck out as a pinch hitter in Sunday's loss to Boston. He's been told he won't make the final 25-man roster, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Paulsen missed some time after being kicked in the calf in a spring training game last week, but looks fine for the regular season. Paulsen hit just .217/.258/.304 for the Rockies last season. He spent most of his time at Triple-A Albuquerque where he hit .278 with a .765 OPS. He may spend most of his season at Triple-A again this year and provide depth.

    Clippers' Chris Paul: Just misses double-double Sunday
    1h ago

    Chris Paul scored 17 points (4-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT) while adding nine assists, four rebounds, a steal and a block in 31 minutes during Sunday's 98-97 loss to the Kings.

    The 31-year-old's production continues to lag behind his usual pace -- Paul's last double-double came five games ago, and he's scored more than 20 points just once in his last eight. After averaging more than 10 assists a game in each of the last three seasons, the point guard seems poised to fall well short in 2016-17 at 9.1 a night, but he's at least making up for it with a career-high 2.1 three-pointers a game.

    DeAndre Jordan scored a game-high 20 points (8-10 FG, 4-7 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, a steal and a block in 30 minutes during Sunday's 98-97 loss to the Kings.

    After scoring just seven points Saturday to break his double-double streak, Jordan kicked off a new one Sunday. The 28-year-old center has now recorded double-digit boards in 13 of his last 14 games, and blocked at least one shot in 15 of his last 16.

    Corey Brewer will draw the start at small forward for Sunday's matchup against the Trail Blazers, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SortsNet reports.

    With Brandon Ingram (knee) sidelined, coach Luke Walton will opt to insert Brewer into the starting five. In eight starts this season, Brewer is averaging 4.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 19.4 minutes per game.

    Jazz's Derrick Favors: Out Monday vs. Pelicans
    3h ago

    Derrick Favors (knee) will remain out Monday against the Pelicans.

    Favors has been doing some non-contact practice work lately. However, he is apparently still in enough pain to sideline him for Monday's tilt. Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles will likely continue to pick up extra minutes in his absence as coach Quin Snyder has been experimenting with more small-ball lineups with Favors out of the picture.

    Jazz's Gordon Hayward: Questionable for Monday's game

    Gordon Hayward (quadriceps) is questionable to play in Monday's game against the Pelicans.

    Hayward is nursing a bruised left thigh he sustained during Saturday's tilt against the Clippers. If he's ultimately unable to give it a go, look for both Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles to take on a larger workload.

    Shelvin Mack (ankle) is questionable for Monday's matchup against the Pelicans.

    Mack was listed as questionable leading up to Saturday's tilt against the Clippers, but never saw the floor. Though he may be healthy enough to suit up Monday, it's possible he will catch another DNP, as he's currently at the bottom of the barrel as far as point guards go on the Utah Jazz 's roster.

  • Conor Sheary PIT LW
    Penguins' Conor Sheary: Suffers injury Sunday
    1h ago

    Conor Sheary sustained a lower-body injury in Sunday's game against the Flyers and is day-to-day.

    The diminutive winger got banged up in the first period and didn't return for the remainder of the contest, recording just 3:56 of ice time. Sheary has already missed a handful of games this season due to various injuries, which has stunted a still-impressive 21-goal, 50-point campaign in 54 contests (prior to Sunday). On the bright side, the Pens have locked up a playoff spot, so Sheary will have plenty of time to rest up before the postseason, but that doesn't do much to quiet the concerns of his fantasy owners in the midst of vying for a championship. Look for further updates on his status prior to Wednesday's date with the Blackhawks.

    Flyers' Radko Gudas: Tallies empty-netter versus Penguins
    1h ago

    Radko Gudas scored an empty-netter in a 6-2 victory over the Penguins on Sunday.

    The 26-year-old has four times as many penalty minutes (84) than points (21) this season, so unless owners want him for the PIM category, then he really isn't fantasy relevant. Having said that, Gudas has been a well balanced fantasy contributor in March with two goals, six points, a plus-10 rating and 23 penalty minutes in 13 games.

    Flyers' Shayne Gostisbehere: Posts two points versus Penguins
    1h ago

    Shayne Gostisbehere recorded a pair of points - a goal and an assist- a plus-3 rating and five shots in a 6-2 drubbing of the Penguins on Sunday night.

    This snapped a five-game pointless streak for the young defenseman, and it was his first goal since his team's last trip to Pittsburgh for the outdoor game at the end of February. If he could play as he does against the Penguins all the time, fantasy owners would really have something, but overall, it's been a very disappointing sophomore campaign. Gostisbehere has already played more games than last season, and he has 10 fewer goals, 14 fewer points and a minus-21 rating. He has more shots than last season, but as some might have expected, he hasn't come anywhere close to repeating his 11.2 shooting percentage from 2015-16.

    Penguins' Matt Murray: Struggles versus Flyers
    1h ago

    Matt Murray allowed five goals on 32 shots in a 6-2 loss against the Flyers on Sunday.

    Pittsburgh has been decimated with injuries, so they aren't at full strength, but Murray has been inconsistent, particularly to his glove side, in the last month. Although he is 5-2-1 in March, Murray also owns just a .910 save percentage and a 2.86 GAA. Again, part of the poor numbers is a depleted defense, but Murray has struggled enough to warrant Marc-Andre Fleury to receive an opportunity to play more down the stretch. If the veteran netminder receives that opportunity and runs with it, don't be surprised if Murray takes a back seat in the playoffs.

    Steve Mason allowed two goals on 27 shots in a 6-2 victory against the Penguins on Sunday.

    This is the second time in a week and a half Mason and the Philadelphia Flyers were able to knock off the defending champions. Pittsburgh was at the end of a long road trip in the first matchup, but for this one, Pittsburgh didn't play Saturday and Philadelphia did. Mason turned aside 48 of 50 shots in the two games. Those two games have helped Mason improve his numbers in March. He owns a .918 save percentage and 2.32 GAA in the last 11 games.

    Makinton Dorleant (knee) was arrested Saturday night at a bar in Chicago, the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Unlike Bears CB Deiondre' Hall, who was Dorleant's teammate at Northern Iowa and accompanied Dorleant at the bar on Saturday, the Green Bay Packers cornerback only received one misdemeanor charge for interference. It's possible the NFL could come down with a punishment.

    Steelers' Le'Veon Bell: Doesn't have timetable at moment
    8h ago

    Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said the team does not have a rehab timetable for Le'Veon Bell (groin), The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac reports. "Our goal is to have [Bell] 100 percent for the 2017 season," Colbert said.

    Bell had surgery March 13 to repair the core muscle injury that left him sidelined for most of the AFC championship game. He also received the Steelers' franchise tag earlier this offseason, with the two sides hoping to reach a long-term agreement while Bell recovers from his surgery. There's still plenty of time before the July 15 deadline, and Bell's rehab process isn't expected to interfere with his Week 1 availability. While the current injury shouldn't have too much impact on negotiations, the Steelers can't ignore that their star running back has missed 20 out of a possible 70 games since entering the league in 2013.

    Theo Riddick had surgery on both wrists late last season, the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Riddick missed the final four games of the season with a wrist injury, but it was never revealed if he had surgery. While it turns out he actually needed procedures on both wrists, Riddick is still expected to be a full participant when organized team activities begin later this spring. Backfield mate Ameer Abdullah (foot) has already been fully cleared to return, but even with him and Riddick both expected to be healthy, the Detroit Lions are rumored to have interest in drafting a running back.

    Ravens' Timmy Jernigan: Could be available in trade
    9h ago

    The Baltimore Ravens may consider trading Timmy Jernigan , who is preparing for the final season of his rookie contract, ESPN.com reports.

    The perennially cap-strapped Ravens have invested a lot in other parts of their defense, most recently giving out huge contracts to NT Brandon Williams and S Tony Jefferson. The 48th overall selection in the 2014 draft, Jernigan may have priced himself out of the team's range with his solid play the past two years. He's recorded either four or five sacks in each of his three seasons while also providing a strong presence against the run the past two campaigns.

    Johnathan Hankins: Could stay with Giants
    9h ago

    Johnathan Hankins could still re-sign with the Giants, NJ.com reports.

    With the exception of Baltimore's Brandon Williams, the market for defensive tackles hasn't quite shaped up the way many players were hoping. Hankins ultimately may have to settle for an annual salary far lower than what he was expecting, or else accept a one-year contract similar to the one Dontari Poe signed with Atlanta. He may have thought he'd priced himself out of the Giants' range, but it now appears Hankins could stick with the team for at least one more year. He's arguably the top interior lineman left on the market.
