Angels' Huston Street: On for spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Ryan Madson: Remains in hunt for closer role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Madson fired a scoreless inning in Saturday's 11-6 split-squad Cactus League loss to the Reds, giving up two hits.

Madson successfully converted 30 of 37 save opportunities last season but struggled early this spring. The veteran has generated a 6.43 ERA by giving up five earned runs on 12 hits and two walks over seven innings, but the majority of that damage occurred over his first two outings. Madson has settled down since that point, giving up just one earned run across the five innings he's pitched in his five subsequent trips to the mound. The 36-year-old reliever remains in contention for a closer role that could still potentially be handled by committee to open the season.

Kings' Skal Labissiere: Moves into starting five Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Labissiere will start at power forward Sunday against the Clippers, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports.

The Kings are holding out Kosta Koufos for rest purposes in the front end of the back-to-back set, so Labissiere will move back to the starting five following a one-game stint on the bench. Labissiere was still quite productive in a reserve role during Friday's loss to the Warriors, turning in 10 points, 10 boards, eight assists and one block in 27 minutes. He figures to get plenty of burn over the last two and a half weeks of the season while the lottery-bound Kings turn their focus to finding more playing time for their younger players.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Drops double-double in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum accumulated 18 points (6-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 assists, six rebounds, and one steal in 30 minutes during Sunday's 120-106 win over the Suns.

Batum has dished out at least 10 dimes seven times this season, and he has posted 14 double-doubles plus one triple-double. The 28-year-old is managing career highs in points (15.3) and assists (5.9) per game, and despite a career-low average in blocks (0.4), Batum is still one of the most well-rounded wings in the league.

Kings' Tyreke Evans: Will start at small forward Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans will start at small forward in Sunday's game against the Clippers, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports.

The Kings are resting Arron Afflalo for the front end of the back-to-back set, so it will open up a spot on the top unit for Evans, who sat out Sacramento's previous game Friday against the Warriors for rest purposes. Evans will still likely be capped at around 28 minutes on the recommendation of team doctors following his offseason knee surgery, but he's still been one of the team's more productive offensive players since he was acquired at the trade deadline. Over his nine appearances with the Kings, Evans has averaged 14.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.8 three-pointers in 22.4 minutes per game.
