    • Chris O'Grady MIA SP
      Marlins' Chris O'Grady: Lasts just 4.2 innings against Reds
      16m ago

      Chris O'Grady allowed three runs on four hits and six walks while striking out six batters through 4.2 innings during Saturday's win over Cincinnati. He didn't factor into the decision.

      The rookie sports a 5.40 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 9.6 K/9 through three starts in the majors, and while the ratios are discouraging, the strikeout upside will keep O'Grady in the fantasy conversation. It's probably best to be selective with his opponents going forward, but O'Grady posted a solid 3.29 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 8.9 K/9 with Triple-A New Orleans, so he has some potential. A repeat matchup against Cincinnati is up next for the 27-year-old lefty, but this time the game will be in Miami.

      Angels' JC Ramirez: Picks up ninth win
      25m ago

      JC Ramirez gave up three runs (one earned) on five hits and three walks while striking out six over six innings Saturday, picking up the win against the Red Sox.

      He outpitched David Price in this one to record his ninth win of the season. Ramirez had been in a bit of a rut, logging a 5.40 ERA and 1.45 WHIP over his last six starts (31.2 innings), so it would have been understandable if a good percentage of his owners left him on the bench for this game. The Los Angeles Angels may take advantage of Monday's off day in order to go with a four-man rotation in the short term, which would result in Ramirez starting Thursday in Cleveland.

      Orioles' Ryan Flaherty: Building up arm strength
      25m ago

      Ryan Flaherty (shoulder) said he can do everything in terms of baseball activity, and is now just trying to build up his arm strength, The Associated Press reports.

      Flaherty is set to begin a rehab assignment Thursday, and doesn't expect to need much time before being ready to rejoin the O's. Although he's logged an at-bat in just 11 games this season -- and been injured since May 19 -- Flaherty says he might be ready to return three games after his rehab assignment begins.

      Red Sox's David Price: Clobbered by Halos
      30m ago

      David Price gave up six runs (five earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out five over five innings Saturday against the Angels.

      He needed 102 pitches (68 strikes) to get through five frames, ending his brilliant run of five straight quality starts, during which he posted a 1.91 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 34 strikeouts over 33 innings. Even after Saturday's blowup, his ERA still sits at 3.82, which is respectable, given that he had some rust to knock off when he initially came off the disabled list in late May. His next start will come Friday at home against the Royals.

      Orioles' Darren O'Day: Takes loss after blowing save Saturday
      33m ago

      Darren O'Day (1-3) was charged with his second blown save while taking the loss Saturday after allowing a three-run homer and collecting just two outs (both via strikeout) against Houston.

      Clinging to a one-run lead with one out in the top of the sixth inning, O'Day relieved starter Chris Tillman and immediately surrendered back-to-back singles. He froze Alex Bregman on a called third strike, but then served up the deciding long ball to pinch hitter Marwin Gonzalez. O'Day seemed to be making strides in the week's leading up to the All-Star Break, but has been beat up early in the second half. After allowing five runs over his last 2.2 innings, the right-hander now owns a 4.81 ERA, his highest mark since May 8.

      Mets' Travis d'Arnaud: Collects three hits against Oakland
      34m ago

      D'Arnaud went 3-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a run during Saturday's win over the Athletics.

      The backstop hasn't moved the fantasy needle outside of deep fantasy settings, and his .241/.302/.449 slash line isn't overly encouraging. Still, nine home runs, 31 RBI and 24 runs through just 205 plate appearances is serviceable production from the catcher position. D'Arnaud also offers modest upside moving forward.

      Texans' Duane Brown: Contract dispute lingers
      3h ago

      Duane Brown is not expected to report for the start of training camp due to his unhappiness with his contract, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

      Brown, Houston's 31-year-old left tackle, skipped the entire offseason, feeling his contract has become outdated over time as new tackle deals have surpassed Brown's deal. The Houston Texans are holding fast to their policy of not negotiating deals with two years left on them, and it's unclear if a compromise can be reached. At this point, Brown is not expected to miss regular-season games because of the dispute.

      Cardinals' Mike Iupati: Reports lighter than ever

      Mike Iupati reported to training camp weighing 327 pounds, the lightest of his career, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

      You know it's training camp time when stories about players' weight start popping up in the press. Iupati reached the Pro Bowl in 2015, but struggled in 2016 when he reported to camp nearly 20 pounds heavier. The 29-year-old Iupati as well as head coach Bruce Arians feel the weight loss should improve the guard's stamina.

      Denard Robinson: Drawing interest from Dallas

      The Cowboys brought Denard Robinson in for a workout on Thursday, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

      Robinson, formerly of the Jaguars, has also drawn interest from the Bears this offseason and even attended their veteran minicamp in May. While he obviously left Chicago without a contract, Robinson is still a serviceable backup who could provide depth to the Cowboys' shallow backfield, which could come in handy if the league office decides to suspend Ezekiel Elliott for the beginning of the season in the aftermath of the NFL's year-long investigation into the runner's legal situation.

      The Cowboys brought Ronnie Hillman in for a workout this week, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

      Along with Hillman, the Cowboys gave former Jaguars running back Denard Robinson a tryout too as it seems Dallas management is seriously bracing for the possibility of an Ezekiel Elliott suspension. A 2012 third-round pick of the Broncos, Hillman split time last season with the Chargers and Vikings, finishing the year with 131 rushing yards on 41 carries (3.19 YPC).

      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.

      Grizzlies' Dillon Brooks: Gets two guaranteed years on deal

      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 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.

      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.

      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.

      Gaudet's contract also includes $110,000 in guaranteed salary. With a new deal in place, the Ontario native can challenge for a bottom-six role in training camp this fall. Last season, he generated six goals and 16 assists in 62 games with AHL Tucson, and also picked up a helper over four games at the highest level.

      Brian Dumoulin (hand) is seeking a $4.35 million contract extension, which happens to be $2.4 million more than Pittsburgh's current offer, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

      Dumoulin proved last season that he can handle more than 20 minutes per contest, and his agent will likely embellish a bit in an attempt to procure a lucrative salary for his client -- after all, NHL defensemen are generally paid out at a premium rate. One thing is for sure: it's not worth breaking the bank on the brawny reaguard in fantasy leagues given his shutdown role and scant offensive output of 33 points in 163 career contests. Once Dumoulin formally enters an arbitration hearing, it could take up to 48 hours for a fair salary cap figure to be assessed.

      Predators' Austin Watson: Contract demands tough for Preds to stomach
      12h ago

      Austin Watson -- who ended up filling for salary arbitration -- is seeking $1.4 million, whereas the Nashville Predators have proposed an offer of $700,000, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

      We suspect an arbitrator will ultimately grant Watson a salary that comes in less than his $1.4 million ask, but higher than the $700,000 the Preds wish to provide. The Michigan native largely avoided the AHL this past season and proceeded to put up five goals, 12 assists and 99 PIM in 77 games for the parent club during the regular season. Watson also held his own during the postseason, as he averaged 13:40 of ice time and skated to a plus-3 rating with nine points over 22 grueling contests.
