Street (knee) is making his 2017 Cactus League debut Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Coming off a 6.45 ERA during (surprise) an injury-shortened 2016, Street is battling for the closer role with Cam Bedrosian (groin) and Andrew Bailey, among others. His body of work and name recognition may land him the job initially, but it's wise for fantasy players to remain skeptical, especially considering his health issues and the talent Bedrosian boasts when healthy.
Rinne will be in the crease for Monday's Game 6 against Anaheim.
The Finland native has been a huge part of the Predators' playoff success with .942 save percentage and 1.62 GAA in 15 games so far. With the team on the brink of making their first Stanley Cup Final appearance, Rinne will need to continue his stellar play.
Revis won't face league discipline for the felony assault charges that were dropped in March, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
Revis was arrested in February and charged for his alleged involvement in an altercation that left two men unconscious. After his March hearing, however, all charges against Revis were dropped. Upon completing its own review, the NFL also saw no reason to punish Revis, who was released by the Jets shortly after the incident. Now a free agent, the 31-year-old can ensure prospective teams of his availability, even though his poor performance last season may be the larger concern on that front.
X-rays on Machado's hand came back clean Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
The X-rays were simply precautionary, as Machado was able to stay in and finish the game after being plunked on the hand by an eighth inning offering from Joe Smith. While it appears the 24-year-old dodged an extended absence, it's unclear if he'll be available for Monday's matchup against the Twins. Paul Janish would likely draw the start at third if Machado gets the day off, while more should be known about Machado's status closer to game time.
Manager Ned Yost said he removed Kennedy after two innings Sunday to keep the right-hander an option for Thursday in New York, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.
Dodd also reports that Nathan Karns (elbow) is likely headed to the DL, meaning the Royals will need adjust the rotation for the coming week. Whether Kennedy starts Thursday against the Yankees, or Friday against the Indians, he's got a tough assignment on tap. Over the past three seasons, the 32-year-old has faced off against those teams eight times. Kennedy is 2-5 with a combined 5.94 ERA in those starts. An injury update on Karns is expected early in the next day or two, and news on Kennedy's assignment should quickly follow.
