      Cubs' Wade Davis: Slams door Sunday night
      10m ago

      Wade Davis collected his 20th save of the season in a 5-3 win over the Cardinals on Sunday.

      Davis had the pleasure of closing out the final two games of Chicago's three-game set with the Cards, improving his ERA to 2.12 to go with a 1.12 WHIP. The former Ray and Royal has been a solid ninth-inning man in his first year with the Chicago Cubs , as he's yet to blow a save and has fanned as many batters (47) in 33 innings as he did all of last year with Kansas City.

      Phillies' Luis Garcia: Earns first save of campaign
      15m ago

      Luis Garcia recorded a strikeout and didn't allow a baserunner during a scoreless ninth inning to record his first save of the season in Sunday's win over Milwaukee.

      Hector Neris had pitched in each of the past two games, so that's likely why Garcia entered in the ninth for the save opportunity. However, the Philadelphia closer job has been somewhat fluid all season, so it isn't out of the question that Garcia sees more work closing out games moving forward. He should at least be on your fantasy radar, and especially if you're chasing saves.

      Cubs' Jose Quintana: Emerges victorious in Wrigley debut
      22m ago

      Jose Quintana lasted six innings Sunday, allowing three runs (all earned) on five hits while striking out seven in a 5-3 win over St. Louis. He issued two walks.

      Quintana wasn't as dominant as he was in his 12-strikeout Chicago Cubs debut against the Orioles, but he did enough to earn the win in his first start at Wrigley Field. He's now 6-8 on the year with a healthy 128:42 K:BB and appears set for a strong second half after being revitalized in a trade from the lowly White Sox on July 13.

      Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Fans six through six in win
      23m ago

      Jerad Eickhoff (2-7) allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out six batters through six innings during Sunday's win over Milwaukee.

      This was another strong outing from Eickhoff, but unfortunately, the 27-year-old righty has mixed in too many duds to be a reliable asset in the majority of fantasy settings. He sports a mediocre 4.71 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 8.4 K/9 for the year, so it's probably best to avoid Eickhoff outside of favorable matchups moving forward. He projects to face the Braves at Citizens Bank Park in his next start.

      Phillies' Nick Williams: Plates three to help top Brewers

      Williams, Nick went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and three RBI during Sunday's win over Milwaukee.

      After posting an .839 OPS with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, Williams hasn't skipped a beat since joining the Philadelphia Phillies . He sports an impressive .309/.347/.603 slash line with four homers, 15 RBI and 10 runs through just 75 plate appearances. Williams is a potential flier to consider if outfield help is needed.

      Cubs' Willson Contreras: Homer paces team to victory
      28m ago

      Willson Contreras hit his 15th home run of the season in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Cardinals.

      The catcher's two-run shot in the bottom of the sixth inning broke a 3-3 tie and propelled the Chicago Cubs to their eighth win in the last nine games. Contreras has been going deep rather frequently, as Sunday's blast marked the third time he's left the yard in the last four games -- a span that's also featured seven RBI.

      Vikings' Rodney Adams: Favorite to win kick return job
      41m ago

      Rodney Adams is the leading candidate to win the kick return job in place of Cordarrelle Patterson, who left in free agency, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

      Adams, a fifth-round 2017 draft pick, will try to make the 53-man roster as a receiver, so winning the kick return job could help his standing. Still, it's a wide-open competition with Jerick McKinnon and seventh-rounder Stacy Coley also in the mix.

      Eagles' Jordan Matthews: Could be limited in training camp
      3h ago

      Jordan Matthews (knee) could be limited during the outset of training camp, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

      Matthews is battling a case of tendinitis in his left knee, an issue that forced him from participating in parts of the Philadelphia Eagles ' offseason program. While it wouldn't be ideal for him to miss out on valuable practice time during training camp, Matthews' restrictions could allow newly acquired wideouts Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, as well as embattled 2014 first-rounder Nelson Agholor, to receive more reps than they would've otherwise.

      Dwayne Gratz was released by the Eagles on Sunday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

      This move is a little surprising, as Gratz was one of the Eagles' only reserve cornerbacks with any playing experience whatsoever. The 2013 third-rounder shouldn't have too much of problem finding another job sometime soon.

      Packers' Jeff Janis: Unlikely to break out in fourth season
      5h ago

      Jeff Janis is unlikely to be anything more than a special-teams player in 2017, ESPN's Mike Clay reports.

      The highlight of Janis' three-year career to date is likely his performance in the 2015 playoff game against the Cardinals in which the 2014 seventh-rounder caught a Hail Mary touchdown to force overtime. Other than that, Janis has only flashed on occasion as a situational downfield threat. Fortunately, he's one of the best special-teams players the Green Bay Packers employ, which should help his case in securing a roster spot ahead of the 2017 campaign.

      Sebastian Tretola was treated for a gunshot wound Sunday but has since been released from the hospital, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessee Titans ' official site reports.

      This is the second time Tretola's name has come up in the news for the wrong reasons this offseason, as the offensive lineman was accused of having a role in teammate Tajae Sharpe's April bar skirmish. Thankfully, the gunshot wound is reportedly "minor" in nature and Tretola shouldn't be out of service for long.

      Sidney Jones (Achilles) was placed on the non-football injury list Sunday, Dave Spadaro of the Philadelphia Eagles ' official site reports.

      This move was likely inevitable as Jones tore his Achilles tendon in March. As it stands, the Eagles will have Jalen Mills, Patrick Robinson and Rasul Douglas to work with as their top corners to open training camp.

      Knicks' Damyean Dotson: Signs three-year contract with Knicks
      12h ago

      Damyean Dotson will sign a three-year contract with the New York Knicks , Michael Scotto of the Associated Press reports.

      The deal reportedly includes guarantees for the first two years, so it seems highly likely that Dotson will be on the regular-season roster following training camp. Dotson, widely considered a three-and-D prospect, had a standout performance during the Orlando Summer League with averages of 12.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 5.0 three-pointers per contest. He'll provide emergency depth as another shooter off the bench on the wing, although Dotson could earn a more prominent role in the rotation as the season progresses.

      Hawks' Nicolas Brussino: Picked up by Hawks
      1d ago

      Nicolas Brussino was claimed off waivers by the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

      Brussino, who was let go by the Mavericks on July 20, has been picked up by the Hawks. He showed some promise last season in limited minutes, but Dallas seemingly felt he wasn't worth the money he would have been guaranteed had they held onto him. The Hawks, however, are deep in rebuilding mode and jumped on the opportunity to add a wing player to the mix. Brussino averaged 2.8 points and 1.7 boards across 9.6 minutes per game last season. His potential workload for the upcoming season is pretty up in the air, though it seems possible he could garner a similar role for the Hawks.

      Cooley, after going undrafted back in 2013, has bounced around the NBA and the D-League since. Last season, however, he played for the German club MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg. He'll look to make a name for himself in the G-League this season.

      John Wall agreed to a four-year, $170M extension with the Washington Wizards on Friday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

      The Wizards offered Wall an extension at the beginning of free agency, but he was expected to take some time and allow the team to assemble their roster before making a final decision. Ultimately, he opted to to accept the team's max-extension offer, which will kick in following the remaining two years on his deal. The 26-year-old is entering his prime and coming off the best season of his career, in which he recorded career highs in points, assists, and steals. He figures to be primed for another big season.

      Pau Gasol agreed to a three-year deal to remain with the San Antonio Spurs , Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

      While the monetary details of the contract haven't been announced at the moment, it seems safe to assume that the three-year deal guarantees more money than the $16.2 million player option that Gasol declined for the upcoming season. While Gasol's best years are certainly behind him, he still posted a solid 12.4 points, 7.8 boards, 2.3 assists and 1.1 blocks across 25.4 minutes per game, making him a fair option in a variety of fantasy formats.

      Tony Parker (quad) is progressing in his rehabilitation and can now run on his injured left leg, Cody McCrary of MySanAntonio.com reports.

      Though Parker, who ruptured his left quad during Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals, is making strides with his rehab, he told Argentinian reporters that "it's still going to be another four or five months". With that in mind, it's still realistic at this point to hold onto the January return date that he's been targeting since late May.

      Red Wings' Dennis Cholowski: On correct path in development
      6h ago

      Dennis Cholowski has a long way to go before he'll be in the NHL, but he's committed to getting stronger and will be taking cues from offseason acquisition Trevor Daley in training camp, The Detroit News reports.

      Detroit's first-round (20th overall) draft pick from 2016, Cholowski is said to have a determined mindset; the young defenseman wants to know what he can do to improve his game, and that's impressed Detroit Red Wings director of player development Shawn Horcoff, who suggested the prospect takes note of Daley and how he "uses his speed and poise with the puck." Cholowski added one goal and 11 assists with St. Cloud State of the NCHC last season and also made a cameo appearance with AHL Grand Rapids. At this point, his destination for the upcoming season is still unknown.

      Al Montoya could see an increase in his workload in the 2017-18 season, Steven Nechay of Montreal Canadiens .com reports.

      Canadiens goaltending coach Steven Waite has expressed his trust in Montoya, saying, "We're not afraid to put Al in goal against any team in the league." This implies Montreal can use Montoya whenever starting goalie Carey Price needs rest, not just against weaker opponents. Montoya's increase in playing time will be limited however, as he will remain in a backup role to Price.

    • Andreas Athanasiou DET C
      Red Wings' Andreas Athanasiou: New deal imminent
      14h ago

      Andreas Athanasiou is expected to get a new contract from the Detroit Red Wings well ahead of training camp in September, The Detroit News reports.

      Double A is a restricted free agent, but he's still in the infancy of his career and therefore ineligible for arbitration. The priority signing for the Wings was veteran scoring machine Tomas Tatar, who ended up re-signing before an arbitrator could rule on his case and settled on a four-year, $21.2 million extension. As noted in the report, the Original Six franchise currently has less than $1 million in available cap space, meaning the team will have to explore the option of placing an injured player like Ryan Sproul (knee) on long-term injured reserve in order to give Athanasiou -- who tacked on 18 goals and 11 assists over 64 games last season -- a fair deal.

      Arvidsson led the Predators in both goals and points last season, with 31 tallies and 30 assists. The 24-year-old was able to cash in on his breakout season, as he landed a long-term deal. He'll continue to operate as the team's top right wing, and power-play ice time is a given as well.

      David Rittich signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Calgary Flames on Saturday.

      Rittich appeared in 31 regular-season games with AHL Stockton last season, compiling a 15-11-1 record while registering a 2.27 GAA and .924 save percentage over that span. The 24-year-old will return to his role as AHL Stockton's starting netminder in 2017-18.

      Flames' Jon Gillies: Settles on one-year, two-way deal
      1d ago

      Jon Gillies signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Calgary Flames on Saturday. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

      Gillies, a top prospect, is likely to be the first goalie called up from AHL Stockton in the event of an injury to newcomers Mike Smith or Eddie Lack. The 23-year-old did experience a number of performance-induced road bumps on the way to a 2.93 GAA and .910 save percentage for the minor-league Heat last season, but this contract proves the Flames want to give him a closer look. He could give Lack -- a guy who had frustrated coach Bill Peters as a tender for the Hurricanes -- a run for his money by showing well in training camp.
