Aaron Sanchez TOR SP
Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez: Scheduled to see hand specialist1m ago
Aaron Sanchez (finger) will visit a hand specialist Friday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Per manager John Gibbons, a DL stint is still being considered, but the team hopes that this appointment will help shed some light on what the issue is. Sanchez has already landed on the disabled list multiple times this season due to blister issues, so it's certainly reasonable to expect more of the same in this instance.
Corey Kluber CLE SP
Indians' Corey Kluber: Slated to start Sunday3m ago
Corey Kluber (neck) is listed as the probable starter for Sunday's matinee tilt with the Blue Jays.
Kluber has been dealing with a stiff neck over his past few starts and was already bumped from his previously-scheduled appearance Friday, but it appears he'll still make an outing this week, barring any setbacks. The right-hander owns an outstanding 2.86 ERA and 0.96 WHIP over 15 starts this season and ranks ninth in the majors with 135 strikeouts.
Eric Sogard MIL 2B
Brewers' Eric Sogard: Expected to return Saturday4m ago
Eric Sogard (ankle) will be out another day before returning to the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Although Sogard appears ready to be reinstated from the disabled list, he will have to wait at least one more day as the Brewers begin a series in Philadelphia. Sogard has already rejoined the team in the City of Brotherly Love, but the team may still need time figuring out which player they will cast off the 25-man roster to make room for him. Jonathan Villar once agains draws the start at second base for Friday's game, while the two should develop into a timeshare upon Sogard's return.
Joe Smith TOR RP
Blue Jays' Joe Smith: Likely to return Saturday7m ago
Joe Smith (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Saturday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The reliever is reportedly with the team already, but given how overworked the bullpen is at the moment, the Toronto Blue Jays will wait a day to activate Smith. No word has come forth as to what the corresponding move will be to get him on the active roster, but things should clear up as Saturday's game time approaches.
Boone Logan CLE RP
Indians' Boone Logan: Will miss significant time9m ago
Manager Terry Francona said Boone Logan has a torn lat muscle and will miss significant time as he recovers.
Logan was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday in what was thought to be a strain, but it appears to be a bit more significant following further evaluation. It's a devastating development for the left-handed reliever and indicates he may not be able to return to action this season. Tyler Olson, recalled in a corresponding move, takes his place in the bullpen.
Lonnie Chisenhall CLE RF
Indians' Lonnie Chisenhall: Back to baseball activities but still weeks away10m ago
Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) resumed initial baseball activities Friday, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
It's good to see some progress on the rehab front for the embattled outfielder, although manager Terry Francona still thinks that Chisenhall is "weeks away" from a return to the lineup. This likely pushes his return date sometime into August, so look for Abraham Almonte and Brandon Guyer to platoon in right field until Chisenhall is good to go.
Marquise Goodwin SF WR
49ers' Marquise Goodwin: Enters camp as starter42m ago
Marquise Goodwin is expected to enter training camp as one of the San Francisco 49ers ' two starting wideouts, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.
Not a huge surprise here, as Goodwin was expected to serve as the deep threat in the 49ers' revamped offense under Kyle Shanahan. Pierre Garcon and Jeremy Kerley figure to receive the lion's share of targets on short and medium routes, but the former Olympian and his career 15.9 YPR should see his fair share of deep targets. Goodwin projects to be a boom-or-bust fantasy option if he can hold on to a starting job come Week 1.
Griff Whalen NE WR
Ravens' Griff Whalen: Signs with Ravens45m ago
Griff Whalen signed with the Baltimore Ravens on Friday.
Whalen's signing comes on the same day that news surfaced that fellow Ravens wideout Michael Campanaro (toe) will begin training camp on the PUP list. In eight games with the Chargers last season, Whalen caught two passes for 22 yards.
Ezekiel Elliott DAL RB
Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Discipline decision not expected over weekend1h ago
Ezekiel Elliott is not expected to find out this weekend whether the NFL's investigation into his personal conduct will result in a suspension, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Elliott is the subject of a league investigation into a 2016 domestic violence allegation against him, and recent off-field incidents are presumably also being taken into account with regard to potential punishment. While a ruling on Elliott's status is not expected over the weekend, the running back's response to the findings report he received from the NFL last week has reportedly been submitted, setting the stage for the situation to be resolved in the near future. Elliott is scheduled to report for the start of Dallas Cowboys training camp Saturday.
Cam Newton CAR QB
Panthers' Cam Newton: Throwing to teammates again2h ago
Cam Newton (shoulder) has resumed throwing to his teammates, cementing the expectation that he'll be ready to do so when training camp begins, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
Newton, who underwent surgery on his right shoulder back in March, began throwing for the first time since his operation nearly a month ago. While those tosses were stationary and to a team trainer, the Carolina Panthers ' quarterback has now advanced to working with his usual targets ahead of the start of camp July 26. Although Newton is expected to be limited early on as Carolina rightfully errs on the side of caution, it's encouraging to hear that he's making such strong progress.
Anquan Boldin DET WR
Anquan Boldin: To visit Bills2h ago
Anquan Boldin will visit with the Bills on Monday, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.
Boldin entered free agency after accumulating 67 catches for 584 yards and eight touchdowns in his lone season in Detroit. Despite that production, the 36-year-old remains without a team. Ranked third among active players in both career receptions (1,076) and touchdown grabs (82), Boldin's average yards per catch has declined for five straight seasons, but his physical presence is still a considerable asset in the red zone and running game. Furthermore, with the Bills' wideouts rather unaccomplished behind the delicate Sammy Watkins (foot), Boldin could provide needed leadership and reliability, should his visit culminate in a contract agreement.
Marquez Williams JAC FB
Jaguars' Marquez Williams: Opens camp on PUP list2h ago
Marquez Williams (undisclosed) was placed on the physically unable to perform list Thursday, John Reid of Jacksonville.com reports.
Williams was a seventh-round pick in this year's draft, and the exact specifics of the injury that landed him on the PUP list are currently unknown. Williams will have until the start of the regular season to be activated, with the team needing to decide whether to keep him on the final roster.
Pau Gasol SA C
Spurs' Pau Gasol: Agrees to three-year deal with Spurs43m ago
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 SA G
Spurs' Tony Parker: Progressing in rehab1h ago
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.
Dillon Brooks MEM F
Grizzlies' Dillon Brooks: Gets two guaranteed years on deal4h ago
Dillon Brooks signed a three-year deal with two years fully guaranteed Friday with the Memphis Grizzlies , Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.
Brooks was drafted in the mid-second round by the Rockets in this year's draft before being traded to the Grizzlies the same night. Brooks signing a guaranteed contract with Memphis before training camp even begins is surely a sign that the team is happy with what they have seen out of the former Oregon star. With Memphis having solid depth on the wing, however, Brooks will likely find himself on the outside of the team's rotation to start the season.
Monte Morris DEN G
Nuggets' Monte Morris: Signs two-way contract with Nuggets5h ago
Monte Morris signed a two-way contract Friday with the Denver Nuggets , Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.
Morris was the 51st overall pick in the 2017 draft after a very successful four-year career at Iowa State. The Nuggets are already like already satisfied with their depth at point guard, as they have Jamal Murray, Jameer Nelson Emmanuel Mudiay all capable of playing the position. So, in an effort to keep Morris within the franchise, he'll likely spend most of his rookie season playing in the G League.
Dakari Johnson OKC C
Thunder's Dakari Johnson: Signs two-year guaranteed deal with Thunder21h 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 Mavericks1d 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.
Tommy Wingels CHI C
Blackhawks' Tommy Wingels: Suffers left foot fracture2h ago
Tommy Wingels suffered a left foot fracture during offseason training Friday, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Wingels is expected to make a full recovery in 6-to-8 weeks, so he should be a full participant in September's training camp. The 29-year-old winger, who notched 12 points (seven goals, five assists) in 73 games last season, won't produce enough offensively in 2017-18 to warrant consideration in most season-long fantasy leagues, but he'll be a key component of the Chicago Blackhawks ' bottom-six forward group and penalty-killing unit.
Ryan Dzingel OTT C
Senators' Ryan Dzingel: Secures last-minute deal6h ago
Ryan Dzingel (wrist) and the Ottawa Senators avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing to a two-year contract with an average annual value of $1.8 million, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.
Dzingel had a breakout season in 2016-17, garnering 14 goals, 18 helpers and 123 shots on goal -- all career highs. The 25-year-old saw 1:20 of ice time per game on the power play, but he was only able to notch three points in those situations. If the natural center can get more comfortable playing on the wing -- and improve his man-advantage productivity -- he could exceed the 40-point mark this upcoming year. Although a wrist injury may have impacted his performance during this spring's playoffs, Dzingel should be ready to go for training camp.
Garnet Hathaway CGY RW
Flames' Garnet Hathaway: Signs one-year deal with Calgary22h 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 Nashville1d 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 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 underway1d 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 league1d 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.
