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.
Orlov is said to be discussing a possible contract with CSKA Moscow of the KHL, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports, citing Igor Eronko of Russia's Sport-Express.
It was a breakout campaign for Orlov in 2016-17, as he manufactured a career-high 33 points to complement a shiny rating at plus-30. While the rearguard saw his playing time jump by three and a half minutes compared to the prior campaign, the Capitals acquired defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk shortly ahead of the trade deadline and that created volatility with Orlov's minutes when coach Barry Trotz tinkered with his pairings. If you hold keeper shares in the 25-year-old, wait for more substantiated reports before worrying about the rumored departure to the KHL, though it's worth noting that his hockey career began in that league back in 2007-08, when he was with Novokuznetsk Metallurg.
Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-4 loss to Kansas City.
The third baseman has been slumping a bit of late, going one for his last 16 at the plate. His slash line still sits at .265/.333/.464 on the season, and he continues to take a patient approach at the plate. He also shows the occasional pop, as evidenced by his seventh homer of the year. It could be just what he needed to get things going back in the right direction.
Moustakas went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-4 win over Cleveland.
His homer to right center in the fifth inning tied the game for the Royals. Moustakas is now slashing .249/.282/.503 on the season, and has been the victim of some considerable bad luck with a .240 BABIP. His power stroke is working on the campaign, as he now has 12 home runs to go along with 25 RBI.
Saladino left Friday's game with back spasms and is day-to-day.
Saladino has been dealing with back issues for over a week and has managed to play just once over Chicago's past eight games. Given his struggles to stay healthy, a disabled list stint for Saladino has to be in the discussion for the White Sox at this point.
