Rockies' Trevor Story: Sits out Sunday12m ago
Story, Trevor is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers.
Story continues to scuffle at the plate this season, slashing just .224/.309/.414 on the season. He'll get the day off with Pat Valaika drawing the start at shortstop.
Victor Martinez DET DH
Tigers' Victor Martinez: Expected to return Wednesday13m ago
Victor Martinez (chest) is set to take batting practice Tuesday with a return from the disabled list likely coming Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive Media Group reports.
Martinez has missed nine games up to this point with an irregular heartbeat issue that forced him to spend a few nights in the hospital. The 38-year-old appears to have recovered, and should be back with the Detroit Tigers and in the lineup Wednesday against Kansas City.
Carlos Gonzalez COL RF
Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez: Remains out of lineup Sunday19m ago
Carlos Gonzalez (shoulder) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Gonzalez will stay on the bench for the third consecutive game as he's been plagued by a bout of shoulder soreness. The veteran right fielder took swings in the batting cage Sunday and reportedly felt "not good, but better." He hopes to avoid a trip to the disabled list and has his sights set on returning for their upcoming series against the Giants. Raimel Tapia will again draw the start in right field in his stead, batting fifth.
Gregory Polanco PIT RF
Pirates' Gregory Polanco: Out of lineup Sunday20m ago
Gregory Polanco is not in Sunday's lineup against the Cardinals.
Polanco will get the day off after going hitless during the first two contests of the series. In his place, John Jaso takes over in right field and will bat third in the order.
Mike Freeman LAD 1B
Dodgers' Mike Freeman: Recalled from Triple-A22m ago
Mike Freeman was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday.
Franklin Gutierrez was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday with a back injury, so Freeman will bring his services to the major-league club. The 29-year-old was hitting .295 over 65 plate appearances with Oklahoma City this season.
Franklin Gutierrez LAD LF
Dodgers' Franklin Gutierrez: Placed on 10-day DL with back injury25m ago
Franklin Gutierrez was placed on the 10-day disabled list with ankylosis spondylitis Sunday.
Gutierrez is apparently dealing with a bout of arthritis in his spinal region and will take some time off to allow his body to heal. Mike Freeman was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move.
Karl Klug TEN DE
Titans' Karl Klug: Nearing return1h ago
Karl Klug (Achilles) figures to be back on the field in six weeks, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessee Titans ' official website reports. "I am sick of missing practices," the defensive end said. "But they have me on a good schedule, doing rehab, and I'm working to get back as fast as I can."
Klug tore his Achilles back in the December and has been on the long road to recovery ever since. Just because he's not on the field doesn't mean Klug isn't a constant presence, however, with head coach Mike Mularkey noting that the 29-year-old "lives in the building and should have an address here." It seems unlikely Klug will be ready for the beginning of training camp, but he projects to be able to return shortly thereafter.
Tajae Sharpe TEN WR
Titans' Tajae Sharpe: May need to fight for roster spot3h ago
Tajae Sharpe (foot) may have to compete for a roster spot, The Tennessean reports.
A Week 1 starter after being selected in the fifth round of last year's draft, Sharpe failed to take advantage of his role, catching only 41 of 83 targets for 522 yards (6.3 YPT) and two touchdowns in 16 games. The Tennessee Titans responded by drafting Corey Davis in the first round and Taywan Taylor in the the third round, later adding Eric Decker when he was released by the Jets in June. With Decker, Davis and Rishard Matthews all slated for key roles, Sharpe was already staring at a slide down the depth chart before he had surgery on a fractured foot in early June. He's expected back for training camp, but he may have to compete with Harry Douglas, Eric Weems and a few other players for only one or two roster spots.
Tyler Higbee LAR TE
Rams' Tyler Higbee: Getting work ahead of rookie so far4h ago
Tyler Higbee got regular first-team snaps during June minicamp, ESPN.com's Alden Gonzalez reports.
A likely Day 2 selection at one point, Higbee fell to the fourth round of last year's draft due to off-field concerns and a sketchy injury history, and while neither of those potential issues cropped up during his rookie season, he was still remarkably unproductive in catching only 11 of 28 targets for 85 yards and a score in 16 games. With Lance Kendricks no longer around, Higbee is the favorite to enter Week 1 as the Rams' starting tight end, though second-round rookie Gerald Everett still has time to make a push for the job. New head coach Sean McVay made the most of his tight ends -- particularly Jordan Reed -- while serving as offensive coordinator for the Redskins, but McVay will have his hands full working with second-year QB Jared Goff, a shaky offensive line and an unproven group of pass catchers. While the team context is far from ideal for fantasy production, Higbee does have a clear opportunity to earn regular snaps and targets.
Chris Hogan NE WR
Patriots' Chris Hogan: Works with starters during offseason program4h ago
Chris Hogan mostly ran with the first-team offense during June minicamp, ESPN.com's Mike Reiss reports.
Although the offseason addition of Brandin Cooks pushed him down the depth chart, Hogan still figures to have a regular spot on the outside when the New England Patriots go three-wide, which has been the team's base alignment in recent years. However, Malcolm Mitchell and No. 2 tight end Dwayne Allen could cut into Hogan's snap count, and regular targets will be hard to come by in a passing attack featuring Cooks, Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman. Despite turning in a highly efficient 2016 season (11.9 yards per target) and then leading the team in receiving yards (332) during the playoffs, Hogan probably won't see a major uptick from last year's 57 regular-season targets.
Marlon Mack IND RB
Colts' Marlon Mack: Sits out minicamp with undisclosed injury4h ago
Marlon Mack (undisclosed) did not participate in June minicamp, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports.
While there's no indication the injury is significant, it isn't ideal for a rookie to miss any time during the offseason program. Mack still figures to be ready for training camp, where he'll compete with 27-year-old Robert Turbin and 2016 UDFA Josh Ferguson for backup work behind 34-year-old Frank Gore. The fourth-round rookie is the only one of the bunch with any real upside as a runner, but Turbin's combination of size, experience and pass-blocking ability makes him the favorite to earn the No. 2 spot on the depth chart. There could be room for three players to contribute each week, as the Indianapolis Colts seemingly hope to ease Gore's workload in what could be his final season.
Maurice Harris WAS WR
Redskins' Maurice Harris: Could win No. 4 spot on depth chart4h ago
Maurice Harris has a shot at the No. 4 receiver job, Rich Tandler of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.
Harris caught on with Washington as an undrafted rookie last season, catching eight of 12 targets for 66 yards in 10 games. The team signed Brian Quick in the offseason, but it seems Harris and Ryan Grant may enter training camp ahead of the veteran on the depth chart, possibly even getting a shot to push Josh Doctson for the No. 3 job if the 2016 first-round selection struggles during camp.
Dirk Nowitzki DAL PF
Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Option declined by Mavericks1h ago
Dirk Nowitzki will have his $25 million team option for the 2017-18 season declined, but is expected to re-sign with the Dallas Mavericks , Marc Stein of ESPN.com reports.
Shortly after this past season concluded, Nowitzki was quick to announce he'd be returning for his 20th year in the NBA, but he'll first need to restructure his contract in order for the Mavericks to free up some space. A new two-year deal is expected to eventually be agreed upon between the two sides, although nothing concrete has been put in place. Once re-signed, Nowitzki should continue to be a key piece in the Mavericks regular rotation, but his numbers could continue to dip as he gets older.
Chris Paul LAC PG
Chris Paul: Officially becomes free agent22h ago
Chris Paul officially exercised his early termination option to become a free agent Saturday, Paul Garcia of The Sports Daily reports.
As anticipated, Paul will pass on his final year with the Clippers in order to test the free-agent waters, which opens July 1st. His former team could offer him the heftiest contract -- which could be worth upwards of $205 million on a five-year deal -- but any other team could only offer him a maximum of $152 million over four years, according to ESPN.
DeAndre Liggins DAL SG
DeAndre Liggins: Option not picked up by Mavs1d ago
DeAndre Liggins ' option will not be picked up by the Mavericks, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports.
This decision is unsurprising, as Liggins played in just the final two games of the season with the club. He was signed due to a plethora of injured and rested players. The Kentucky product played 79 games with the Cavaliers before ultimately being waived. He finished the season with an average of 2.4 points, 1.7 rebounds, 0.9 assists, and 0.7 steals across 12.3 minutes per game.
Yogi Ferrell DAL PG
Mavericks' Yogi Ferrell: Mavs picking up option1d ago
The Mavs have opted to pick up Yogi Ferrell 's option for $1.3 million, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports.
Ferrell made this decision easy for the Dallas Mavericks , as he excelled after initially signing a 10-day contract with the team mid-season. He started 29-of-36 games with the club, and tallied 11.3 points, 2.8 rebounds, 4.3 dimes, 1.1 steals, and 1.7 triples across 29.1 minutes per game in the process. The Indiana product will presumably see his role reduced in the upcoming season, as the Mavericks drafted point guard Dennis Smith Jr. with the ninth pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. Also, J.J. Barea and Seth Curry are still both under contract with the team, so it remains to be seen how the rotation will play out. Barea would seem the likely candidate to be on the outside looking in if the team opts to air on the side of youth.
Lavoy Allen IND PF
Pacers' Lavoy Allen: Has option declined2d 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 contract2d 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.
Andy Andreoff LA C
Kings' Andy Andreoff: Staying put in Los Angeles18h ago
Andy Andreoff signed a two-year, $1.355 million contract Saturday, Jon Rosen of LA Los Angeles Kings Insider reports.
The 26-year-old center was unable to find the back of the net this season and only tacked on two helpers, so it isn't a surprise that he was barely offered more than the minimum to keep him around two more years. Andreoff did post 70 hits in 36 games, His career faceoff percentage of 52 percent does help his value in the long term, but don't expect any true fantasy potential this season.
Ben Chiarot WPG D
Jets' Ben Chiarot: Inks new contract20h ago
Ben Chiarot agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday worth an average annual value of $1.4 million.
Chiarot isn't going to set any scoring records -- he tallied just 12 points in 2016-17 -- but he eats up valuable minutes on Winnipeg's blue line (15:19 per game), without giving up a lot of goals to opposing forwards (plus-2 rating). The 26-year-old will likely continue to serve as a third-pairing defenseman and could see more regular starts after appearing in just 59 outings this past season.
Travis Hamonic CGY D
Flames' Travis Hamonic: Packs cowboy hat and heads west1d 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 Flames' blue line, which already has some big names. 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 LV RW
Golden Knights' Keegan Kolesar: Trade sends him to 'The Strip'1d 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 Missouri in trade2d ago
Oskar Sundqvist was traded by Pittsburgh 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 No. 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 Penguins2d 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 PIM for the Blues last season. Reaves offers virtually nothing offensively and he is only a fantasy option in leagues that highly value PIM and hits.
