Athletics' Billy Butler: Will see fewer starts at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Billy Butler is due to play a more limited role with the acquisition of Khris Davis, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Butler, who served in a DH role in 136 games last year for the A's, is likely to see that number drop this year. If newly acquired Khris Davis moves into the everyday left field role for the A's as expected, Coco Crisp would get a lot of starts at DH, which would severely cut into Butler's at-bats. Given his limited upside, Butler would need a full-time role to be useful in most formats, and that no longer looks like it will be the case in 2016.

Athletics' Coco Crisp: Will see increased DH role
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Crisp will see some time at designated hitter this season, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The acquisition of Khris Davis on Friday gives the A's plenty of flexibility in the outfield and will force Coco Crisp out of a starting role in left field. Davis played almost entirely in left during his tenure with the Brewers so it seems probable he would make a smooth transition there for the A's. If Davis does in fact claim the starting role in left, Slusser notes that Crisp would get a lot of at-bats at DH. Crisp, now 36 years old and coming off a 2015 season in which he played in only 44 games due to injury, is due to play a more limited role in 2016, which limits his value to deeper leagues.

Sabres' Zemgus Girgensons: Expected to return to action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Girgensons (lower body) is expected to return to the lineup for Sunday's matchup with Colorado, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.

Girgensons has missed the Sabres' last three contests with a lower-body injury, but returned to practice Saturday, and reportedly felt "ready to go" for Sunday's game after that session. The 22-year-old forward is still on injured reserve, however, and will need to be activated before returning to Buffalo's lineup. Fantasy owners likely won't be concerned with the former first-round pick's status either way, as he's only managed to tally 11 points (five goals, six assits) in 45 games this season.

Jets' Ondrej Pavelec: Will return Saturday against Oilers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

On Saturday night, Ondrej Pavelec will draw a road start in goal against the Oilers, Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Pavelec will have to dust off the cobwebs as this will be his first start since Nov. 21, when he sustained a lower-body injury upon colliding with Coyotes veteran Shane Doan. This figures to be an evenly keeled matchup for Pavelec as the Winnipeg Jets have just two more points than the Oilers in the league standings, but he'll have to watch out for Calder Trophy candidate Connor McDavid, who is fresh off a five-point effort against the Maple Leafs.

Rangers' Ryan McDonagh: Practices without contact Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan McDonagh (concussion) practiced Saturday and should be ready to participate in contact drills "in a couple of days," according to New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

McDonagh is in recovery mode following a punch to face from Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds in a game played exactly one week ago. His appearance in practice Saturday is a nice first step in the rehab process, but the bigger test will come when he sheds the no-contact jersey and the team can see how he responds. Already, McDonagh's been ruled out for Sunday's home match against the Flyers but he'll have all the way until next Wednesday against the Blackhawks to try and make it into the next game.
