Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Throws from 60 feet Monday19m ago
Alex Reyes (elbow) played catch from 60 feet out Monday, Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
It was a momentous development in Reyes' rehab, as it marked his first official game of toss. Reyes had made short throws from his knees against a wall last Wednesday and Friday and emerged without setbacks, clearing the path for Monday's ramp-up in activity. The St. Louis Cardinals ' top prospect will continue to be brought along slowly, with an eye on ideally having him ready to participate in at least a portion of spring training in 2018.
Alex Meyer LAA SP
Angels' Alex Meyer: Lands on DL28m ago
Alex Meyer was placed on the 10-day disabled list Monday with right shoulder inflammation.
It's unfortunate timing for this injury to arise, as Meyer looked completely healthy and dominant during his start against the Nationals on Wednesday in which he tossed seven scoreless innings of work. The 27-year-old has a history of shoulder ailments so this sudden trip to the disabled list is a bit concerning. At this point there's been no word on his timeline for return, but the righty will miss at least one start at the minimum.
Sam Freeman ATL RP
Braves' Sam Freeman: Struggling since start of June38m ago
Sam Freeman has a 3.78 ERA and 1.53 WHIP with 34 strikeouts over 33.1 innings this season.
The 30-year-old's season numbers aren't yet terrible, but it's a far cry from his hot start to the season. Freeman has a 5.31 ERA and 1.62 WHIP across 20.1 innings since the start of June, and has likely pitched himself out of high-leverage work.
Vince Velasquez PHI SP
Phillies' Vince Velasquez: Leaves after rain delay versus Astros41m ago
Vince Velasquez left after the third inning in Monday's start against the Astros because of a rain delay.
Velasquez wasn't enjoying a particularly successful evening, giving up four runs on six hits and three walks in his short time on the mound, and was removed from the game after a rain delay of nearly two hours. He had allowed just three earned runs with a 12:2 K:BB over 12.1 innings in his previous three appearances and will look to bounce back in Sunday's start against the Braves.
Kyle Lewis SEA CF
Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Lifted with knee soreness42m ago
Kyle Lewis was removed from Monday's game with High-A Modesto due to knee soreness, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Though Lewis was forced to exit the game, the team is saying that there is no structural damage to the knee and his removal was simply due to soreness. It sounds like the top prospect won't be sidelined for long, but we'll have to wait for more information to be revealed after he is reevaluated Tuesday. He'll be listed as day-to-day.
Brad Peacock HOU RP
Astros' Brad Peacock: Departs after rain delay Monday1h ago
Brad Peacock departed Monday's start against the Phillies after three innings because of a rain delay.
Peacock allowed one run on two hits and two walks over his three innings on the mound, striking out four, but a rain delay of nearly two hours saw Joe Musgrove come out in his place. The veteran had rattled off three consecutive quality starts prior to Monday's abbreviated appearance and could slot right back in for Saturday's start against the Tigers, although a day off in the schedule could present an additional opportunity to give him a breather.
Marcus Johnson PHI WR
Eagles' Marcus Johnson: Intrigues as training camp opens30m ago
Marcus Johnson is a player to watch this preseason, Dave Zangaro of CSN Philly reports.
The former Texas Longhorn caught the first pass of camp from Carson Wentz and is looking to continue to climb the depth chart. After signing a futures contract In January, Johnson had a very good spring, but he enters his second preseason with an uphill battle to make the club. He currently sits behind six to eight other receivers competing for what will likely be just five roster spots.
Antone Exum MIN CB
Vikings' Antone Exum: Returns to practice1h ago
Antone Exum (leg) is healthy and able to practice, Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press reports.
Exum has dealt with a number of injuries since being drafted in the sixth round of the 2014 draft, most recently missing out on OTAs this offseason to address a knee issue. Now healthy, he'll look to secure a reserve role at safety behind Harrison Smith.
DeMarco Murray TEN RB
Titans' DeMarco Murray: Ready to roll2h ago
DeMarco Murray (finger) is healthy and ready for the start of training camp, Paul Kuharsky of 104-5 The Zone reports.
Murray recently underwent a minor procedure on the ring finger on his right hand to address an issue that dates back to the start of the 2016 season. Although he missed a little practice time in June, the seventh-year Oklahoma product should be operating at full speed from the outset of training camp.
Robert Griffin III CLE QB
Robert Griffin: Working out for Chargers on Tuesday2h ago
Griffin is scheduled to work out for the Chargers on Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Cut by the Browns in March, Griffin has reportedly been working out with ex-Colts OC and current Michigan assistant head coach Pep Hamilton this offseason. If he were to ultimately sign with the Chargers, Griffin would need to beat out incumbent backup Kellen Clemens in order to make the final roster.
Michael Mauti NO OLB
Saints' Michael Mauti: Re-signs with Saints3h ago
Michael Mauti (illness) signed a one-year contract with the New Orleans Saints on Monday, Josh Katzenstein of NOLA.com reports.
Mauti, who's accrued 46 tackles in 24 games for the Saints the last two seasons, missed the final eight games of the 2016 campaign due to ulcerative colitis, an illness he's dealt with since his days at Penn State. With that issue in the rearview for now, Mauti will look to reclaim his role as a special teams captain in advance of Week 1.
Arturo Uzdavinis MIN T
Vikings' Arturo Uzdavinis: Signs with Vikings3h ago
Arturo Uzdavinis signed a contract with the Minnesota Vikings on Monday, Matthew Coller of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities reports.
Uzdavinis was most recently with the Lions after spending time in Houston and Jacksonville last season. The Tulane product will look to make the team as a reserve option at tackle.
Wesley Iwundu ORL F
Magic's Wesley Iwundu: Signs three-year contract with Magic3h ago
Wesley Iwundu signed a three-year, $4.1 million contract with the Orlando Magic on Monday, Michael Scotto of the Associated Press reports.
Iwundu, the 33rd pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, will be getting a fully guaranteed three-year deal, which is quite uncommon for second-round picks. While he'll need to have a strong training camp to earn playing time as a rookie, Iwundu is a versatile player and profiles as a strong defender, which could help his case for early playing time. He still needs to show some improvement with his jump shot, however, so look for the 6-foot-7 rookie to merely offer depth on the wing in his first season.
Derrick Rose NY G
Cavaliers' Derrick Rose: Will sign with Cavaliers5h ago
Derrick Rose committed to signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers after completing a physical exam Monday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.
Rose was expected to choose between the Lakers and Cavaliers in what will likely be a one-year deal at a minimal price. Rose could potentially be entering an advantageous situation for a comeback, as starting star point guard Kyrie Irving has reportedly requested a trade from the team. Should he actually be traded, and depending on who the Cavaliers get in return, Rose could be in line for a heavy workload playing alongside LeBron James. However, that is all speculation at the moment, and in the meantime Rose figures to be in line for a role providing scoring off the bench. The 28-year-old is six years removed from an MVP season before significantly injuring his knee the following year. He is coming off his best season statistically since suffering the injury.
Marreese Speights LAC F
Magic's Marreese Speights: Signing with Magic14h ago
Marreese Speights signed a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum Sunday with the Orlando Magic , Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today reports.
After stints on the West Coast in both Golden State and Los Angeles, Speights has elected to return to his home state of Florida for the 2017-18 season. The 29-year-old, who managed to play in all 82 games last season for the first time in his NBA career, will be entering his 10th season as a veteran presence for an overwhelmingly young Magic team. With Orlando having a lot of money invested at center with Nikola Vucevic and Bismack Biyombo, Speights could return to seeing more minutes in his original role in the league as a stretch power forward off the bench.
Damyean Dotson NY G
Knicks' Damyean Dotson: Signs three-year contract with Knicks2d 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.
Nicolas Brussino ATL F
Hawks' Nicolas Brussino: Picked up by Hawks2d 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.
Jack Cooley CLE SF
Kings' Jack Cooley: Signs two-way deal with Kings3d ago
Jack Cooley has agreed to a two-way contract with the Sacramento Kings , Chris Reichert of The Step Back reports.
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.
Marek Langhamer ARI G
Coyotes' Marek Langhamer: Signs two-way contract with Coyotes7h ago
Marek Langhamer signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Arizona Coyotes on Monday, Craig Morgan of ArizonaSports.com reports.
Langhamer saw action in just one game with the Coyotes during the 2016-17 campaign, as he spent the majority of his time in both the ECHL and AHL. He'll get a two-way deal for the upcoming season, which likely means another developmental year with plenty of time spent in the minors, thus keeping him off the fantasy radar.
Adam Pelech NYI D
Islanders' Adam Pelech: Grabs four-year extension9h ago
Adam Pelech agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension with the New York Islanders on Monday.
After playing in just 44 games last season, Pelech is expected to take on an expanded role this year -- likely on the Isles' third pairing. When the 22-year-old was in the lineup during the 2016-17 campaign, he averaged a mere 16:50 of ice time but still tallied 10 points. With more outings and minutes potentially coming his way, the blueliner stands a decent chance of doubling his point total in the upcoming season.
Austin Watson NSH LW
Predators' Austin Watson: Puts pen to paper13h ago
Austin Watson inked a three-year, $3.3 million deal with Nashville on Monday.
With the two sides separated by $700,000 -- Watson was seeking $1.4 million per season -- they seem to have split the difference. The winger is coming off a sophomore campaign in which he registered career highs in goals (5), assists (12) and shots on goal (90). Given the talent he showed with AHL Milwaukee -- 44 points in 76 games during the 2014-15 campaign -- fantasy owners shouldn't be shocked to see the 26-year-old reach the 25-point mark this season.
Ryan Spooner BOS C
Bruins' Ryan Spooner: Separated by $1.85 million13h ago
Ryan Spooner and the Boston Bruins are off by $1.85 million in regards to a new contract, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.
Spooner's last deal carried an AAV of $950,000, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that he is looking for a significant pay bump heading into the 2017-18 campaign. After tallying 11 goals and 28 helpers in 2016-17, it is hard to argue against paying up for the center -- although the terms of the 25-year-old's deal will likely impact how much Boston has to shell out for fellow restricted free agent David Pastrnak. Considering only two arbitration filings have actually made it to a hearing -- both of which were settled prior to a ruling -- the odds are in favor of the two sides bridging the divide in the coming days.
Brian Dumoulin PIT D
Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Secures long-term deal13h ago
Brian Dumoulin (hand) signed a six-year, $24.6 million contract with Pittsburgh on Monday.
Locking Dumoulin in for six years will allow the Pittsburgh Penguins to continue pairing the shutdown defender with the offensively minded Kris Letang (neck). The 25-year-old Dumoulin only registered 15 points last season -- along with a zero plus/minus rating -- but his contributions won't show up on the scoresheet as he is frequently tasked with going up against opposing team's best players. Fantasy owners won't be scrambling to add the Maine native to their lineups -- nor should they be -- but Pittsburgh fans will be happy to have Dumoulin under contract through the 2022-23 campaign.
Connor Hellebuyck WPG G
Jets' Connor Hellebuyck: Inks one-year deal14h ago
Connor Hellebuyck agreed to terms on a one-year, $2.25 million contract with Winnipeg on Monday -- avoiding arbitration.
Hellebuyck's new deal is a clear sign that the organization is still unsure if he can take the next step forward in his development. The netminder will likely be on a short leash this season as Winnipeg brought in Steve Mason to serve as the veteran backup. Heading into the 2017-18 campaign, Hellebuyck is the presumptive No. 1, but with a talented group of skaters around him, coach Paul Maurice likely won't hesitate to switch goalies in order to get the Winnipeg Jets into the playoffs.
