    Rangers' Carlos Gomez: Returns to lineup as DH
    3h ago

    (shoulder) went 2-for-4 as the ' DH in Wednesday's Cactus League game.

    Gomez played in a Cactus League game for the first time in over a week, though the Rangers chose to ease him back into things by only allowing him to hit. The 31-year-old's two hits brought his spring slash line to .375/.417/.813. He should see the field in the remaining exhibition games, and assuming all goes well, he's expected to open the season as the Rangers' starting center fielder.

    Rays' Shane Peterson: Reassigned to minor-league camp
    3h ago

    was reassigned to minor-league camp Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The 29-year-old outfielder finished spring with a .229 average, double, two home runs and five RBI. Peterson, who has a minor-league career that dates back to 2008, slashed .259/.324/.353 over 225 plate appearances with the Brewers back in 2015 in what is his only major-league stint to date. He's likely to start the 2017 campaign in Triple-A Durham and could be a potential call-up later in the season if outfield injuries crop up.

  • Steve Selsky BOS RF
    Red Sox's Steve Selsky: May return to majors
    4h ago

    , who was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket earlier this week, is a candidate to make Boston's roster as the 25th man, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports. Marco Hernandez is also in the mix.

    Josh Rutledge appeared to have the edge for the final roster spot, being a right-handed hitting utility infielder that could complement Pablo Sandoval at third base or Mitch Moreland at first while Hanley Ramirez is unable to play the field early in the season. But Rutledge suffered a hamstring injury Tuesday and will start the season on the 10-day disabled list. Enter Selsky, a right-handed batter who can play first base and has done some work at third this spring. He probably has the edge over the lefty-hitting Hernandez, though Hernandez has more third base experience and, as someone that hits both lefties and righties well, could complement Sandoval.

    Red Sox's Drew Pomeranz: Takes step back Wednesday
    4h ago

    allowed three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four over four innings Wednesday against the Twins, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

    Pomeranz had been expected to throw five innings Wednesday, but four was all he could fit over 76 pitches. After locking in his mechanics during his previous start, Pomeranz found himself rushing his delivery Wednesday. He'll remain in Fort Myers (Fla.) and throw in a minor-league game next Monday, an event manager John Farrell described as "important for Drew." It sounds like the manager wants to see some improvement next Monday and won't "rubber-stamp" him as the fifth starter next week.

    White Sox's Tyler Saladino: Plays Wednesday

    returned to action Wednesday after missing one game with a wrist injury, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Saladino started at second base and batted leadoff, going 2-for-2 with a leadoff home run against the Padres.

    Saladino was hit by a pitch on the wrist -- a dangerous area for broken bones -- so Wednesday's return was good news for the 27-year-old, who will begin the 2017 season as the 's primary second baseman. He'll get "a significant amount of time" there according to manager Rick Renteria. It's uncertain whether Saladino will stick as the leadoff hitter when the regular season opens.

    ended up with a season-high 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt) with five assists, four rebounds and two blocked shots over 22 minutes in Wednesday's 110-98 win against the Spurs.

    West entered averaging 4.8 points per game over his past 10 outings, which was right around his season production. The 15-point outing was his most productive since April 8, 2016 when he went for 17 points as a member of the Spurs.

    Warriors' Draymond Green: Very limited on offense Wednesday

    (ankle) scored just four points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt) with six rebounds, four assists, two steals and seven turnovers across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 110-98 win against the Spurs.

    Green rolled his ankle in Tuesday's game, but was able to play a healthy amount of minutes. Unfortunately, the big man appeared to be rather limited by the ailment, as he wasn't nearly as active on the glass and at the offensive end as usual. Of course, playing the defensive-minded Spurs isn't exactly a walk in the park. Things should open up in Friday's game at home against the Rockets, a team allowing 108.9 points per game, or 15.6 points more per outing than the Spurs.

    was scoreless with zero field-goal or free-throw attempts in just one minute Wednesday against the Spurs.

    McCaw had previously been in the starting lineup, but he was sent back to the end of the bench and he nearly picked up a DNP-CD. He wasn't a great fantasy addition before, even as a starter, but he certainly cannot be trusted in a bench role.

    Warriors' Andre Iguodala: Continues his accurate shooting

    posted 14 points (6-9 FT, 2-3 3Pt) with six rebunds, two steals and an assist across 30 minutes in Wednesday's 110-98 win against the Spurs.

    Iguodala has picked up the pace with Kevin Durant (knee) sidelined, especially over the past three games. He is averaging 15.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.3 steals over the past three outings. Iguodala is a great addition off of the bench if he is available off the waiver wire. However, know that Durant is expected to return for at least the final three regular season games for Iguodala's production is likely to take a hit then.

    finished with 16 points (5-9 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) iwth six rebounds, three assists and two steals over 30 minutes in Wednesday's 110-98 loss against the Warriors.

    Green had been struggling from the perimeter lately, hitting just five of his 23 attempts from behind the arc over the past six outings. His ability to hit 3-pointers is his most endearing trait for fantasy owners, so this was a huge relief for those in rotisserie formats.

    Aldridge tied a season best with the four blocked shots. His numbers have been down substantially since moving to the over the past two seasons, as he is no longer averaging 21-23 points like his final five campaigns with the Trail Blazers. Despite the offensive downturn since the start of the 2015-16 season, he is still very useful across most fantasy formats.

    Fritz has been a solid point producer in the minors this season, notching 40 points (19 goals, 21 assists) in 61 games with AHL Bridgeport. The 25-year-old forward will likely once again spend the majority of the 2017-18 campaign in the minors.

    (upper body) didn't take part in line rushes during pregame warmups, indicating he won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Coyotes, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.

    Jaskin is reportedly getting "close" to returning to the ' lineup, but he'll have to wait until Friday against Colorado for his next chance to do so. The 24-year-old winger's impending return to action will bolster St. Louis' depth up front, but it won't mean much to fantasy owners, as his limited offensive production -- 13 points in 65 games this season -- keeps Jaskin from being a desirable option in most formats.

    The Avalanche's top prospect recently finished his freshman year at the University of North Dakota, and he was highly productive in his only season with the Fighting Hawks, racking up 35 points (16 goals, 19 assists) in 33 games. Jost will join Colorado for the remainder of the 2016-17 campaign, and he could make his NHL debut as soon as Friday against the Blues. The 5-foot-9, 19-year-old Canadian was drafted by Colorado with the 10th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, and he has the potential to develop into a legitimate top-six forward. If he's available, Jost is a player owners in dynasty formats should seriously consider adding to their roster.

    Kings' Nick Shore: Back in action Wednesday

    Shore has missed LA's last 11 games due to an upper-body injury, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him eased back into action against Calgary. He'll slot into a bottom-six role against the Flames, centering Dustin Brown and Tyler Toffoli on the Kings' third line. The American forward has only notched 12 points (five goals, seven assists) in 63 games with the Kings this season, so he isn't a practical fantasy option in most formats.

While he's no longer the top netminder for his club, he receives enough looks between the pipes for consideration in deep leagues and remains an option in daily lineups. Wednesday's opponent -- the Flames -- has scored 3.25 goals per game during March, tied for second best in the league.

    Buccaneers' Ali Marpet: To be tried at center in OTAs
    5h ago

    will be tried at center in OTAs and preseason, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The 23-year-old will be part of an offensive line shake-up that will see last year's prize free-agent acquisition J.R. Sweezy, who has yet to play a down for the Bucs after a herniated disc landed him on injured reserve in 2016, try his hand at Marpet's right guard spot. Meanwhile, last year's starting left guard Kevin Pamphile will likely compete with Demar Dotson for reps at right tackle. The idea is to get the best combination of lineman sorted out in time for the regular season, and head coach Dirk Koetter believes that could ultimately mean Marpet making the calls at center. although that will ultimately be determined through on-field work. "Tremendous run blocker. Communicator. Good in the screen game,'' Koetter said. "But again, I'm not saying he's going to end up being our center. I'm saying, I mean, Ali played every snap at right guard last season, one of only two offensive linemen to play every snap, and Ali has had two solid, solid seasons for his first two years as a guard."

  • Doug Martin TB RB
    Buccaneers' Doug Martin: Team remains noncommittal about future
    5h ago

    The Bucs remain noncommittal about 's (suspension) future with the team, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. "Who knows what's going to happen?" head coach Dirk Koetter said to reporters at the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix on Wednesday. "Are we going to add a running back in the draft? Is Doug going to continue down the path of good health? And we have other guys we like at the position, too. I don't know what's going to happen, as I sit here today."

    As has been reported previously, Martin's suspension frees the Bucs from having to pay him $7 million in guarantees, making his release completely conceivable if the team felt that it could adequately replace him and/or if they remained unconvinced that he had fully overcome the issues that led to his four-game ban. The former Pro Bowler will be eligible to participate in OTAs, minicamps, training camp, and all preseason games but would have to then sit out the first three games of the regular season to complete the suspension. There are some intriguing possibilities available to fill Martin's shoes, as marquee names Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles remain on the free-agent market for the time being. The Bucs also re-signed Jacquizz Rodgers to a two-year contract on March 9 and have Charles Sims (pectoral) returning for his fourth season. Meanwhile, Tampa could certainly opt to take a running back with their 19th pick in the first round, a selection that could possibly net them names like Leonard Fournette, Dalvin Cook, or Christian McCaffrey. If Martin does remain on the team into the summer, Koetter will be faced with the dilemma of how much playing time to afford him knowing he won't be available for the first three games of the season. "I'm a Doug Martin fan, we would love to have Doug on our team. But when a guy's been a Pro Bowl running back, you know you're not gonna have him for the first three games of the year, how do you do the reps?" Koetter asked. "It's almost like he'd be on PUP for coming back for Game 4, but we don't know what we're gonna do Weeks 1-3 yet."

    Head coach John Harbaugh said he is confident (ribs) can win the starting weak-side linebacker job, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.

    The 42nd overall selection in last year's draft, Correa logged just 48 defensive snaps in nine games, mostly contributing on special teams before a rib injury forced him to injured reserve in December. He made his mark in college as a pass rusher, but it seems the want him to play inside linebacker in their 3-4 defense, replacing early retiree Zach Orr (neck). Baltimore could also use help at outside linebacker, which would seem to be Correa's more natural fit in the defense. Either way, he's expected to take on a key role as he prepares for his second professional season. Correa's rib injury likely has cleared up by now.

He underwent surgery in late January, with the expectation he'd miss the team's offseason program and possibly some of training camp, but would still have time to get ready for Week 1. A return for the start of camp would provide Lockett with plenty of time to make up any lost ground in the battle for Seattle's No. 2 wide receiver job. Jermaine Kearse and Paul Richardson also figure to compete for the role.
