Orioles' Chris Davis: Continues feast or famine return40m ago
Chris Davis went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Thursday's win over Texas.
The slugger is just 4-for-26 with three homers since returning from the disabled list. Davis sports a discouraging .218/.309/.469 slash line, and his 38.1 strikeout percentage is well above the 31.3 mark he posted over the previous five seasons. While it's not out of the question to expect him to turn things around, it's unlikely Davis significantly improves his game-to-game consistency. It makes him a boom-or-bust option in weekly settings and daily contests.
Mark Trumbo BAL DH
Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Homers against Rangers1h ago
Mark Trumbo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Thursday's win over Texas.
While the veteran is currently trailing well behind his 2016 marks, Trumbo is still providing solid fantasy numbers. He sports a respectable .250/.314/.422 slash line with 16 homers, 48 RBI and 60 runs, and he could narrow the gap in a hurry with a hot stretch. It's not out of the question to consider acquiring Trumbo with a buy-low pitch.
Jonathan Schoop BAL 2B
Orioles' Jonathan Schoop: Hits solo shot in win over Texas1h ago
Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and three RBI during Thursday's win over the Rangers.
After a career-best first half, Schoop is 11-for-29 out of the All-Star break with nine RBI and six runs through seven games. He's emerged as a high-end fantasy asset and sports an impressive .302/.350/.540 slash line for the campaign.
Adam Jones BAL CF
Orioles' Adam Jones: Drives in three in win1h ago
Adam Jones went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run, a double, three RBI and two runs during Thursday's win over Texas.
The veteran is having another solid campaign with a .267/.310/.446 slash line, 17 homers, 45 RBI and 50 runs. He's on pace to post a nearly identical numbers to last season's stat line, and Jones remains a key cog in the Baltimore lineup, so his fantasy floor is high.
Zach Britton BAL RP
Orioles' Zach Britton: Allows two runs in non-save spot1h ago
Zach Britton allowed two runs on two hits and a walk during the ninth inning of Thursday's win over Texas.
Britton entered with a four-run lead, so while the game was never in real jeopardy, the outing still can't be spun positively. The southpaw had pitched a scoreless frame in five of his previous six outings since returning from the disabled list, but there is definitely reason for concern considering the severity of the forearm injury that cost him the majority of the first half of the season. Britton is also a prime candidate to be dealt before the trade deadline, so more uncertainty looms.
Shin-Soo Choo TEX RF
Rangers' Shin-Soo Choo: Swipes ninth base1h ago
Shin-Soo Choo went 1-for-2 with two walks, two RBI, a stolen base and a run during Thursday's loss to Baltimore.
Choo's greatest fantasy asset is his ability to move the needle across all categories, and that was on full display Thursday. The veteran sports a respectable .252/.365/.408 slash line with 13 homers, 46 RBI, nine steals and 51 runs. Hitting in the top third of the Texas lineup also projects to help him remain a serviceable supporting piece in the majority of virtual settings.
Jermaine Eluemunor BAL G
Ravens' Jermaine Eluemunor: Placed on non-football injury list6h ago
Jermaine Eluemunor was placed on the non-football injury list Thursday due to an undisclosed injury, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.
A fifth-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens this past spring, Eluemunor will be looking to return to the field and earn a potentially large role in his rookie season. It's unclear how severe the injury is or how much time he may miss. When Eluemunor does return, he's expected to compete for the starting right tackle spot that was vacated in the departure of last year's starter, Ricky Wagner.
Dan Orlovsky DET QB
Rams' Dan Orlovsky: Signs with Rams6h ago
Dan Orlovsky signed a contract with the Rams on Thursday.
Orlovsky's signing gives the Rams three quarterbacks entering training camp. The 12-year veteran spent the past three seasons backing up Matthew Stafford in Detroit, and he'll now compete with Sean Mannion for the backup slot behind Los Angeles starter Jared Goff.
De'Veon Smith MIA RB
Dolphins' De'Veon Smith: Placed on PUP7h ago
De'Veon Smith (undisclosed) was placed on the PUP by Miami on Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Smith was signed by Miami after being passed over during the 2017 NFL Draft. He is a long shot at best to make the team and his odds will get longer if he misses significant time during training camp.
Michael Oher CAR T
Michael Oher: Released by Panthers8h ago
Michael Oher (concussion) was released with a failed physical designation by the Panthers on Thursday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
Oher missed the Panthers' last 13 games of the 2016 season under the league's concussion protocol, and the issues have lingered into the offseason. The Panthers signed former Viking Matt Kalil to start at left tackle in 2017, while Oher will look to get back to full health before potentially catching on with another team.
Chris Johnson ARI RB
Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Returns to Arizona8h ago
The Cardinals and Chris Johnson (hernia) agreed to a one-year contract Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.
After missing just one game through his first seven NFL campaigns, Johnson has managed just 15 appearances the past two years, including four in 2016 due to season-ending surgery to repair a sports hernia. The developments on the health front paved the way for the emergence of David Johnson, who the elder RB will back up in his return to the Cardinals. Due to David Johnson's workhorse nature, expect Chris Johnson to do little more than spell his teammate.
Trai Turner CAR G
Panthers' Trai Turner: Inks four-year extension9h ago
Trai Turner signed a four-year, $45 million contract extension with the Carolina Panthers on Thursday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Turner, a 2014 third-round selection out of LSU, has played over 3,000 snaps with the Panthers' offensive line unit throughout his young career. His performance dipped in 2016 as he was forced to occasionally switch to right tackle due to injuries, but Turner has shown flashes of excellence and will look to return to that level throughout the next four years in Carolina.
Dakari Johnson OKC C
Thunder's Dakari Johnson: Signs two-year guaranteed deal with Thunder4h ago
Dakari Johnson , a 2015 second-round pick, has signed a two-year guaranteed deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder , Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.
Johnson spent last season with the Thunder's G-League affiliate, the Oklahoma City Blue, averaging an impressive 18.5 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 blocks across 29.0 minutes per game while hitting 55.6 percent of his looks from the field. In signing him to a two-year guaranteed deal, it seems like the Thunder believe Johnson can be a legitimate contributor at the NBA level. He'll look to compete for reserve center minutes along with Enes Kanter and Nick Collison behind starter Steven Adams.
Nicolas Brussino DAL G
Nicolas Brussino: Let go by Mavericks9h ago
Nicolas Brussino will be released by the Mavericks, Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Despite showing some late-season promise at the end of the 2016-17 campaign, the Mavericks aren't entirely sold on his future development, so they've decided not to guarantee his contract by its due date. That sends Brussino back to the open free agent market and while there could be some interest from teams in need of depth on the wing, there's a chance Brussino ultimately ends up back overseas in an attempt to restore his value. He played in 54 games for Dallas, averaging 2.8 points and 1.7 rebounds across 9.6 minutes per contest.
Udonis Haslem MIA F
Heat's Udonis Haslem: Signs one-year deal with Heat10h ago
Udonis Haslem signed a one-year, minimum deal with the Miami Heat , Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.
Haslem has called Miami home for his entire NBA career, and he'll be a part of the franchise for at least one more year after signing a deal Thursday. It has been a few years since the veteran has played a crucial role on the court for the Heat, but he'll continue to serve as a key veteran presence and mentor for the team.
Bobby Brown HOU G
Rockets' Bobby Brown: Signs one-year contract with Rockets10h ago
Bobby Brown signed a one-year extension with the Houston Rockets on Thursday, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.
Brown was a minor contributor for the Rockets during the 2016-17 campaign, helping serve as a backup to Patrick Beverley at point guard with an average of 2.5 points over 4.9 minutes in 25 games. He should play a similar role after signing a one-year extension and while Beverley is no longer with the Rockets, Chris Paul was added in his place, which should leave little to no minutes for Brown.
Troy Williams HOU F
Rockets' Troy Williams: Signs three-year extension with Rockets11h ago
Troy Williams signed a three-year contract extension with the Houston Rockets on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Williams, a former undrafted rookie out Indiana, began the 2016-17 campaign with the Grizzlies, playing in 24 games, while notching 13 starts as an injury fill-in. However, he wasn't overly impressive with extended playing time and was eventually let go in January. Once he cleared waivers, the Rockets took that opportunity to sign him to a 10-day contract, before inking Williams to a deal for the remainder of the season. He was solid in limited minutes during that short stint, playing in six games (three starts) and averaging 9.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 23.2 minutes. After signing a three-year extension on Thursday, Williams should slot back in as an additional forward in the frontcourt, but likely won't see enough minutes to be a fantasy relevant. The first year of the deal is fully guaranteed.
Andrew Wiggins MIN G
Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Discussing contract extension with Wolves13h ago
Andrew Wiggins and the Minnesota Timberwolves are working on negotiations for a five-year contract extension that could be worth up to $148 million dollars, ESPN reports.
Through three seasons in Minnesota, Wiggins has played and started in all but one of his 246 career games and has seen his scoring average rise considerably each year. He is coming off a season where he averaged a team-best 23.6 points per game to go along with 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists. With the arrival of Jimmy Butler, however, Wiggins may see his numbers drop a tad, but the 22-year-old has already done more than enough to prove that the Timberwolves should commit to him longterm. It will likely still take some time before all the details of the extension are ironed out, but it looks as if Minnesota is heavily invested in their young star.
Garnet Hathaway CGY RW
Flames' Garnet Hathaway: Signs one-year deal with Calgary5h ago
Garnet Hathaway inked a one-year, two-way contract with the Calgary Flames on Thursday.
Hathaway appeared in 26 games with Calgary last season, notching five points (one goal, four assists) while averaging just 9:08 of ice time over that span. The 25-year-old winger will spend the majority of the 2017-18 campaign in the minors, but he'll likely also log some time with the big club when the Flames are in need of reinforcements up front due to injury.
Marek Mazanec NSH G
Predators' Marek Mazanec: Settles on one-year deal with Predators7h ago
Marek Mazanec and the Nashville Predators settled on a one-year, two-way deal for the 2017-18 campaign Thursday, Craig Morgan of Arizona Sports reports.
Mazanec filed for salary arbitration on July 6, but he and the Predators were able to come to terms on a one-year deal for next season prior to their scheduled arbitration hearing. The 26-year-old netminder will compete for AHL Milwaukee's starting gig in 2017-18.
Tomas Tatar DET LW
Red Wings' Tomas Tatar: Arbitration hearing underway11h ago
Tomas Tatar (shoulder) entered an arbitration hearing against the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday, with the ruling to be made within 48 hours, MLive.com reports.
The restricted free agent's contract demands reportedly include $5.3 million in average annual value, but the Wings maxed out at $4.1 million on their counter offer before entering arbitration. Tatar told reporters last week that he has no limitations with his surgically repaired shoulder, which is a significant development, as injury history can be used as evidence in the hearing.
Kyle Okposo BUF RW
Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Suits up in summer league11h ago
Kyle Okposo (concussion) hit the ice as part of Da Beauty League on Wednesday.
While it may be just a semi-competitive summer league, the fact that Okposo is playing hockey again should be an encouraging sign for fantasy owners. After spending the end of the 2016-17 campaign in the ICU due to medication complications, the winger appears to be working his way back to game readiness in preparation of training camp. Once cleared, the 29-year-old is a near lock to return to the first line as well as the top power-play unit.
Colton Parayko STL D
Blues' Colton Parayko: Settles prior to hearing14h ago
Colton Parayko agreed to terms with St. Louis on a five-year, $27.5 million deal Thursday, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Parayko avoided a sophomore slump by registering 35 points -- two more than he did in his rookie year -- and now he and the club have avoided an arbitration hearing. The blueliner averaged 21:12 of ice time last season, including minutes on both the power play and penalty kill. Parayko has performed well with the man advantage since entering the league -- all four of his goals in 2016-17 came with the extra attacker -- and he should see his opportunities expand on that front in the 2017-18 campaign.
Colton Parayko STL D
Blues' Colton Parayko: Seeking one-year, $4.85 million deal1d ago
Colton Parayko has asked for a one-year contract worth $4.85 million, TSN reports. The St. Louis Blues have offered him two years at $3.4 million and $3.6 million.
Given the discrepancy between the two parties, it appears Parayko and the team won't get an extension done before his arbitration hearing, set for Thursday. Considering his numbers in his first two NHL seasons -- which include 68 points (17 on the power play), a plus-35 rating, 353 shots on goal, 239 blocks and an average ice time of 21:12 last year -- it seems a bit odd that the Blues would opt for a bridge deal rather than locking Parayko up long term, especially with Kevin Shattenkirk off the books. Regardless, he'll almost certainly be awarded more than the average $3.5 million annually the team has offered him. Stay tuned.
