Quincey (upper body) will make his return to the lineup Tuesday against Ottawa, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
The veteran defenseman has been sidelined for the team's last six games, and will skate with Damon Severson on the second pairing. Quincey has never provided much offense, but is a reliable defender who isn't afraid to sacrifice his body, as evidenced by his 71 hits and 69 blocked shots through 51 games in 2016-17.
Stone's injury concerns his neck and he'll be unavailable for Tuesday's road game against the Devils, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Ottawa is suddenly a mess up front with Stone, Mike Hoffman (lower body), and Tommy Wingels (undisclosed) all getting knocked out of Sunday's game against the Jets, one day after learning that top-six forward Bobby Ryan broke his finger. Stone's absence, for one, leaves a gaping hole on the top man-advantage unit. He's recorded 47 points (22 goals, 25 assists) in 56 games this season, with six scores and eight helpers taking place on the man advantage. The Senators have the option of patching up their forward lines with recent call-ups Max McCormick and Casey Bailey, though it's worth noting that Hoffman and Wingels reportedly accompanied the team to New Jersey ahead of Tuesday's game. It'll be risky to play Senators in fantasy leagues until more light is shed on who will sub in for the injured.
Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta, Kyle Hendricks and John Lackey aren't expected to pitch until the second week of games, but Montgomery and Brett Anderson are slated to pitch when Cactus League play begins on Saturday. The two lefties are battling for the final spot in the rotation, with the loser of the competition likely ticketed for a long relief role to being the season.
Goldschmidt is looking forward to competing in the World Baseball Classic in March, the Arizona Republic reports.
He'll leave for Florida on March 6 and begin participating in Team USA workouts March 7. Goldschmidt is expected to anchor the Arizona lineup again in 2017, while his overall production may increase if A.J. Pollock and David Peralta can avoid the injuries that plagued them throughout 2016.
Cammalleri will return to the lineup Tuesday to take on the Senators after serving as a healthy scratch for the last two games, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
While not as productive as he was last season, Cammalleri is by no means having a bad offensive season in 2016-17, with 10 goals and 30 points in 51 games. That said, there is more to the game than recording points for your personal statline. Head coach John Hynes alluded to "other situations" rather than the "end result" being the reason for why Cammalleri has watched the last two games from the press box. Usually when coaches make comments like these, they're referring to a player's play away from the puck. It will be interesting to see if Cammalleri takes his coach's criticism to heart, and if he does, how it will affect his offensive game.
