Asdrubal Cabrera NYM SS
Mets' Asdrubal Cabrera: Bangs out three hits Friday8m ago
Asdrubal Cabrera went 3-for-6 with two runs scored in Friday's win over the Giants.
He didn't let his shift to second base, or his resulting trade request, distract him in his return from the DL. Cabrera is still only hitting .214 (9-for-42) in June despite the big day, however, and the 31-year-old likely isn't going to fetch much on the open market given his status as a free agent in the offseason.
Anthony Rizzo CHC 1B
Cubs' Anthony Rizzo: Gets day off Saturday8m ago
Anthony Rizzo is not in the lineup Saturday against the Marlins.
Rizzo is just 1-for-10 over his last three starts, so he'll head to the bench for a breather as manager Joe Maddon shuffles the Chicago Cubs ' lineup around. Kris Bryant is starting at first base in Rizzo's absence, with Ian Happ getting the nod at the keystone and Javy Baez sliding over to the hot corner.
Drew Robinson TEX 3B
Rangers' Drew Robinson: Rejoins big club14m ago
Drew Robinson was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday.
Robinson slashed .273/.380/.524 in 58 games with Triple-A Round Rock this season before being promoted. His stay could prove to be brief with Cole Hamels (oblique) expecting to come off the disabled list to start Monday's contest against the Indians.
Kyle Seager SEA 3B
Mariners' Kyle Seager: Slugs eighth homer Friday20m ago
Kyle Seager went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, three runs and a walk in Friday's 13-3 win over the Astros.
The homer had been some time coming for Seager, who uncharacteristically hadn't gone deep since June 7. The veteran third baseman does have seven multi-hit efforts and 15 RBI during the current month, despite the fact he's hit just .236 across his 96 plate appearances.
Wilson Ramos TB C
Rays' Wilson Ramos: Activated and starting Saturday23m ago
Wilson Ramos (knee) was activated from the disabled list Saturday. He is starting behind the plate and batting sixth, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.
Ramos is set to make his season debut after missing the first half of the season recovering from a torn ACL. The 29-year-old backstop will look to pick up where he left off before the injury, as he slashed a healthy .307/.354/.496 with 22 homers in 131 games for the Nationals before his 2016 season was cut short. Derek Norris was designated for assignment Friday to clear room on the roster for Ramos. He'll face Dylan Bundy in his first game back from the DL.
Ian Krol ATL RP
Braves' Ian Krol: Pitching well since April24m ago
Ian Krol has a 3.31 ERA and 1.16 WHIP across 19 innings since the start of May.
The Atlanta Braves left-hander has rebounded nicely from a rough start to the season and hasn't issued a walk in his last 10 appearances. Krol still has a 5.33 ERA and 1.37 WHIP with 24 strikeouts across 27 innings for the season, working mostly in low-pressure situations.
Shea McClellin NE OLB
Patriots' Shea McClellin: Playing time may take a hit14h ago
Shea McClellin could see his playing time take a hit this season due to the addition of David Harris, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.
McClellin played 34.5 percent of the defensive snaps last season, tallying 41 tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery in the process. The Jets surprisingly cut Harris in an economic-based move, but he figures to get plenty of snaps for the New England Patriots . It remains to be seen how his presence will cut into McClellin's snaps, but he will presumably see less time on the field.
Bronson Kaufusi BAL DE
Ravens' Bronson Kaufusi: Ready to return14h ago
Bronson Kaufusi (ankle) is eager to make his NFL debut after being sidelined for his rookie season.
Kaufusi is reportedly back to full health after breaking his ankle prior to the 2016 season. The third-round pick is expected to compete for a starting job on the Baltimore Ravens ' defense. He figures to compete with Brent Urban and rookie Chris Wormley for a starting defensive end role. Even if he does not get the starting nod, the BYU product will presumably see playing time in a rotational role regardless. Barring any setbacks, he should enter training camp healthy and hungry.
Darren Waller BAL TE
Ravens' Darren Waller: Back on field14h ago
Darren Waller (undisclosed) was a participant at the Baltimore Ravens ' minicamp after sitting out voluntary workouts, Luke Jones of wnst.net reports.
Waller was one of three tight ends on the team dealing with an injury, but it does not appear to have been a serious issue. His participation in minicamp seems to indicate he will be healthy entering training camp. He figures to compete to make the final roster and provide depth at tight end.
Seth DeValve CLE TE
Browns' Seth DeValve: Expected to break out in 201716h ago
The Cleveland Browns expect a breakout season for Seth DeValve in 2017, Nate Ulrich of The Akron Beacon-Journal reports. "Most of his development in the offseason was that [DeValve] put on a little weight, he is noticeably stronger, he is faster and he is healthier," tight ends coach Greg Seamon said. "His ability to run routes, catch the ball, leave his feet, catch the ball away from his body, and he has a big catch radius -- I think those things are showing up out here. I'm pleased with what he has done developing as a blocker from a technical and footwork standpoint. The proof will be obvious when we put the pads on, but he is ahead of where he was a year ago. I see Seth as a guy who is important to us."
DeValve, the Browns' 2016 fourth-rounder, caught 10 passes for 127 yards and two scores in limited snaps last season. Although he's beginning to prove himself as a receiver, the fact of the matter is that Cleveland selected Miami tight end David Njoku in the first round of this year's draft to serve as the team's primary receiving threat from the tight end position while Randall Telfer, the likely No. 2 on the depth chart, stands apart as the best blocker. That leaves DeValve as nothing more than No. 3. It usually all comes down to opportunity, and that simply might not be there for DeValve to significantly improve upon his 2016 numbers.
Sharrif Floyd MIN DT
Vikings' Sharrif Floyd: Expected to begin 2017 on PUP list16h ago
Sharrif Floyd (knee) is expected to start the 2017 season on the physically unable to perform list, Matt Vensel of The Star Tribune reports.
Floyd -- who's making slow and steady progress in his recovery from nerve damage suffered during September knee surgery -- missed out on the entirety of the Minnesota Vikings ' offseason program and seemingly has little to no chance of making it back for training camp or the preseason. Although him landing on the PUP list is currently the expectation, he could ultimately end up on injured reserve if Minnesota management isn't optimistic about his progress after the season's first six weeks.
Elie Bouka ARI DB
Cardinals' Elie Bouka: Healthy again18h ago
Elie Bouka (hamstring) is healthy after spending the 2016 season on injured reserve, Adam Green of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.
Bouka originally landed on IR after suffering a hamstring injury in training camp last season. Finally healthy, he'll likely need to carve out a role on special teams to make the team ahead of Week 1.
Lavoy Allen IND PF
Pacers' Lavoy Allen: Has option declined17h ago
Lavoy Allen is slated to become an unrestricted free agent after the Indiana Pacers informed him they will not exercise his $4 million contract option, Scott Agness of Vigilant Sports reports.
Allen signed a three-year deal with Indiana back in 2015 and has gone on to average just 4.3 points and 4.6 rebounds since then. This past season, he saw his minutes slip to a career-low 14.3 per game. After his option was declined, the 28-year-old will hit the open market when free agency begins July 1st.
Chris Paul LAC PG
Clippers' Chris Paul: Intends to opt out of contract18h ago
Chris Paul intends to opt out of his contract on June 29th, which would make him an unrestricted free agent, ESPN reports.
Paul will forgo the final year of his current deal with the Los Angeles Clippers , which is worth over $24 million, to hit the open market when free agency starts July 1st. While Paul is waiting for the final day possible to officially declare his intention, star forward Blake Griffin opted out of his final year on Friday. As a result, Los Angeles' two best players will be free to field offers from around this league next month, leaving the franchise with a humungous offseason ahead. At 32 years old, Paul averaged 18.1 points, 9.2 assists, 5.0 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 2.0 three-pointers while shooting 41.1 percent from deep in 61 appearances this season.
Blake Griffin LAC PF
Clippers' Blake Griffin: Opts out of contract19h ago
Blake Griffin (toe) has opted out of his contract, making him an unrestricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.
Griffin was scheduled to earn over $21 million during the upcoming season, but, as expected, he'll forgo that salary in search of a new long-term deal this offseason. While Griffin opting out doesn't come as a surprise, it does drive home the reality that he could leave Los Angeles this summer. At 28 years old, Griffin has averaged just over 21 points each of the last three seasons, while posting around eight rebounds and five assists per game the past two. Although he's ended back-to-back campaigns injured, Griffin still figures to be one of the five most-coveted free agents this offseason, giving the Los Angeles Clippers stiff competition to retain their star forward.
Chris Walker HOU PF
Bulls' Chris Walker: Inks contract with Bulls20h ago
Chris Walker agreed to a free-agent contract with the Chicago Bulls on Friday, Michael Scotto of The Associated Press reports.
Walker, once a highly prized recruit, has played for the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers since going undrafted in 2015. This past season, he averaged nearly six points and four rebounds in 13.2 minutes per game. While that production is nothing to write home about, the bouncy forward will hope to impress the Bulls during summer league.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope DET SG
Pistons' Kentavious Caldwell-Pope: Suspended two games20h ago
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has been suspended for the first two games of the 2017-18 regular season, Keith Langlois of Detroit Pistons .com reports.
Caldwell-Pope's suspension comes after he pled guilty to operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated after being arrested on suspicion of DUI in March. A restricted free agent this offseason, Caldwell-Pope is expected to garner significant interest around the league, but the Pistons ultimately reserve the right to match any offer he receives. Despite the lottery selection of fellow sharpshooter Luke Kennard on Thursday, it's anticipated that Detroit will exercise its right to keep KCP, even though he'll now be forced to sit out the first couple games next season. Just 24 years old, Caldwell-Pope averaged 13.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.0 three-pointers on 35 percent shooting from deep last season.
Tyus Jones MIN PG
Timberwolves' Tyus Jones: Likely backup point guard after Dunn trade1d ago
With Kris Dunn traded to Chicago in the Jimmy Butler deal, Tyus Jones looks set to enter next season as the primary backup point guard to Ricky Rubio.
Minnesota could still make some moves this summer and perhaps sign a veteran point guard, but for now it looks like Jones could see a significant increase in playing time. Jones was quietly efficient last season in limited playing time as he averaged 7.3 assists to 1.8 turnovers per 36 minutes and was eighth on the team in PER. He could surprise this season if he retains the backup point guard role.
Travis Hamonic NYI D
Flames' Travis Hamonic: Packs his cowboy hat and heads west in trade1h ago
Travis Hamonic has been traded to the Calgary Flames , reports Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada.
Hamonic has long wanted to get closer to the West Coast and home, so this trade fulfills that wish. Hamonic will strengthen the wall that is the Flames' top four. The asking price was two first-round picks, but the Flames dealt a first and second round pick in 2018, a second in 2019 or 2020, and a fourth-round pick in 2019 or 2020, according to Bob McKenzie of TSN.
Keegan Kolesar CLB RW
Golden Knights' Keegan Kolesar: Trade sends him to 'The Strip'2h ago
Keegan Kolesar was traded to the Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for a second-round draft pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, reports Bob McKenzie of TSN.
Kolesar is a 6-foot-2, 227 pound right winger who finished as the WHL's leading postseason scorer with 31 points in just 19 games. He's a clutch offensive performer in playoff hockey -- he's dominated there after delivering 121 points in 118 games in the regular season over the last two years. Kolesar's body is already pro-ready.
Oskar Sundqvist STL C
Blues' Oskar Sundqvist: Off to Pittsburgh in trade14h ago
Oskar Sundqvist was traded to the St. Louis Blues on Friday night, Frank Seravalli of TSN reports.
The Blues certainly had far more interest in moving up to pick #31 in the first round than they did in acquiring Sundqvist. The 23-year-old came over from Sweden two seasons ago as a quality prospect but he has struggled to make an impact at the NHL level. Sundqvist will be nothing more than a depth option for the Blues next year.
Ryan Reaves PIT RW
Penguins' Ryan Reaves: Traded to Penguins14h ago
Ryan Reaves has been traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins , Frank Seravalli of TSN reports.
The Penguins wanted to add some toughness to their club and that is exactly what Reaves brings to the table. The hulking winger posted 13 points and 104 penalty minutes for the Blues last season. Reaves offers virtually nothing offensively and he is only a fantasy option in leagues that highly value penalty minutes.
Jori Lehtera PHI C
Flyers' Jori Lehtera: Traded to Flyers Friday15h ago
Jori Lehtera was shipped to Philadelphia in a Friday trade, Frank Seravalli of TSN reports.
Lehtera was left protected by the Blues in the expansion draft and he now finds himself on a new team. The 29-year-old's production has been heading in the wrong direction over the past three seasons. The Finnish forward posted a career-low 22 points in 64 games this past season for St. Louis. Things will probably get a bit better in Philadelphia, but he won't be worthy of a roster spot in most fantasy leagues. Lethera is signed for one more season at a cap hit of $4.7 million.
Brayden Schenn STL C
Blues' Brayden Schenn: Shipped to St. Louis on Friday15h ago
Brayden Schenn has been traded to the St. Louis Blues , Frank Seravalli of TSN reports.
A very interesting deal that seemingly came out of nowhere. Schenn is coming off another solid season for the Flyers in which he posted 25 goals and 55 points in 79 games. While his minus-13 rating isn't anything to write home about, that was more the result of the Flyers being a poor hockey club than anything else. Expect the 25-year-old to occupy a top-six position for his new club and post similar numbers to what we have seen in Philadelphia over the past several seasons.
