Tootoo wasn't expected to be in the starting rotation regardless of his illness, so it's doubtful he plays Sunday against the Blues. The 34-year-old blueliner hasn't recorded a point in his 36 appearances this year, where he has only averaged 6:32 of ice time anyways. This kind of ice time doesn't warrant a start in any leagues.
Cabrera was hit by a pitch in the arm during Saturday's spring training game against Houston but he stayed in the contest, MLive.com reports.
If there was even a hint of an injury, Cabrera would have likely been pulled, so there doesn't seem to be any cause for concern here. Cabrera will continue to work in camp with the Tigers until he plays for Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic next month.
Bedrosian (groin) will resume throwing off a mound early next week, the Orange County Register reports.
Bedrosian felt stiffness in his lower body earlier this week, but it was never considered a serious injury. Manager Mike Scioscia downplayed the injury Saturday, stating that the lengthy Cactus League schedule (due to the WBC) will give his reliever plenty of time to recover fully. Bedrosian is coming off of offseason surgery to remove a blood clot from his throwing arm. Outside of this minor groin injury, he is considered healthy heading into the 2017 season and will compete with Huston Street this spring for the right to be named Angels' closer on Opening Day.
Miller will defend the home net from the Sharks as Saturday's starter.
We doubt there's going to be a Black Friday-esque rush to get Miller into fantasy lineups since the Cancuks have gone 3-7-0 in the past 10 games, plus the word out of Vancouver is that five of the team's regulars may be dealing with mumps. Evidently, the veteran backstop isn't at risk for catching the infectious condition, but he carries an underwhelming 2.61 GAA and .917 save percentage into this next contest and that wouldn't inspire confidence even under ordinary circumstances. It'll be worth avoiding this situation altogether.
Atlanta evidently sees potential in Walker, a 2012 fourth-round draft pick who was DFA'd by Baltimore earlier this week. The 25-year-old has shown power potential at the plate, recording 18 home runs and 64 RBI for Triple-A Norfolk last season. Walker will report to the Braves' spring training camp to compete for a reserve spot on the major league roster, but could open 2017 serving as organizational depth.
