Braves to promote Hector Olivera on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Braves are expected to call up Cuban prospect Hector Olivera on Tuesday, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Olivera, who came over from the Dodgers at the July 31 trade deadline, has been dealing with a hamstring injury for much of the season.

But he appears to be over the injury, and is primed to make his big-league debut for the Braves. Olivera will likely be the Braves' regular third baseman for much of the final month of the season.

The team has not officially announced the callup.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Brewers have recalled right-hander Zach Davies from Triple-A Colorado Springs. Davies, who was acquired from the Orioles in the Gerardo Parra deal, will start Wednesday's game against the Pirates, making his Major League debut.

Davies was drafted by the Orioles in 2011 as a 26th-rounder. This season, the righty went 6-8 with a 3.30 ERA in 24 appearances (23 starts) across the Orioles' and Brewers' Triple-A squads.

Leafs' Robidas Cleared For Contact
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
Robidas (upper body) was cleared for contact in August and is expected to be a full participant when the Maple Leafs open training camp, Lance Hornsby of the Toronto Sun reports.Robidas' first season in Toronto was an injury-riddled mess, as he was limited to just 52 games before being shut down in mid-March with a sore shoulder and nagging pain in his ankle. It was later determined that Robidas was also dealing with a torn bicep, but the 38-year-old defenseman now seems to be fully recovered from the myriad ailments that plagued him in 2014-15. As the elder statesman on the Toronto roster, Robidas will be counted on to provide leadership along the blue line, though his actual fantasy contributions figure to be minimal. He scored just seven points while averaging only 17:04 of ice time last season, a number that could plunge further if the rebuilding Leafs decide to make room for more of their younger options on defense.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman getting closer to 100 percent
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Falcons running back Devonta Freeman, who has been dealing with a hamstring injury, was an active participant at practice Monday, an encouraging sign for a player who was thought to be the team's starter, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. 

Freeman hurt his hamstring on Aug. 6 and has not played in any of the team's preseason contests. It's not clear if Freeman will play in the team's final game Thursday. 

"He ran it well today," Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. "Limited reps, but it was awesome to see him."

Bruins' Chara Back In Form
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
Chara, who is bouncing back from the displaced fracture of his left fibula that he dealt with late last season, pronounced himself healthy in advance of the coming season, csnne.com reports.Chara finished the 2014-15 campaign with a modest total of 20 points in 63 games, to go along with 42 PIM, while averaging a career-low 23:21 of ice time. Injuries, including a torn PCL in his left knee that forced him out of action for more than a month, contributed to his dip in production, but a bounce-back could be in order now that he is healthy again. While hardly an up-and-comer at the age of 38, Chara is nonetheless being counted on heavily by the Bruins, especially with fellow blueliner Dougie Hamilton having been traded to the Flames. Ample ice time and a key role on the team's power play should thus provide Chara with an opportunity to re-establish his fantasy utility this in 2015-16, in the absence of further injury setbacks.
