Cameron Maybin SF LF
Giants' Cameron Maybin: Removed from lineup7m ago
Maybin was scratched from Friday's spring game, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
No reason for Maybin's removal has been given at this point. Gerardo Parra will slide over to cover center field in place of Maybin, while Connor Joe enters the lineup as the left fielder.
Steve Pearce BOS 1B
Red Sox's Steve Pearce: Hopeful for Opening Day11m ago
Pearce (calf) said he's "hoping" to be ready for Opening Day, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
Pearce has been nursing a calf injury recently, though it doesn't appear to be anything overly serious. He was able to take live batting practice with no issues Friday and is scheduled to play in a minor-league game Saturday. If everything goes as planned, Pearce will play in the team's exhibition series against the Cubs next week in an attempt to get ready for the start of the season.
Eric Haase CLE C
Indians' Eric Haase: Optioned to minors35m ago
Haase was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Friday.
The Indians are going with a combination of Roberto Perez and Kevin Plawecki behind the dish, leaving Haase to open the season in the minors. The 26-year-old backstop hit a solid .364/.375/.727 with two homers and 10 RBI through 19 Cactus League games.
Danny Coulombe NYY RP
Yankees' Daniel Coulombe: Sent to minors1h ago
Coulombe was reassigned to minor-league camp Friday.
Coulombe posted a solid 2.79 ERA and 10:3 K:BB through 9.2 innings this spring, but there simply isn't room for him in the Yankees' stacked bullpen. The southpaw, who owns a career 4.27 ERA across parts of five big-league seasons (143.1 innings), should provide bullpen depth for New York.
Matt Olson OAK 1B
Athletics' Matt Olson: Undergoes hand surgery1h ago
Olson underwent successful surgery on his right hand Friday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Olson injured his hand during the team's opening series against the Mariners. The A's have yet to provide a timetable for Olson's return, though he figures to open the season on the IL, likely opening up an avenue to playing time for either Mark Canha or Chad Pinder.
Joey Gallo TEX LF
Rangers' Joey Gallo: Pain-free after minor-league test1h ago
Gallo's groin is pain-free following minor-league action Friday, and he expects to be ready for Opening Day, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.
Gallo has been out for over a week, but the injury doesn't seem to be a significant one. He's set to be the everyday left fielder in Texas this season.
Mike Glennon ARI QB
Raiders' Mike Glennon: Signed by Oakland1h ago
Glennon was signed by the Raiders on Friday.
The Raiders have targeted a 29-year-old veteran with starting experience in Glennon to serve as Derek Carr's backup, though Nathan Peterman also plans to fight for a roster spot throughout the offseason. Glennon completed 15 of 21 passes for 174 yards and a score in two games with the Cardinals last season, but his overall resume as a pro includes 22 career starts as well.
Maurice Alexander SEA DB
Bills' Maurice Alexander: Headed to Buffalo2h ago
Alexander signed a one-year, $1.375 million contract with the Bills on Friday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
Alexander played 131 snaps on special teams for the Seahawks last season, but didn't see the field on defense in nine games. He'll provide depth at safety in Buffalo behind the starting duo of Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer.
Kerry Wynn NYG DE
Bengals' Kerry Wynn: Signs with Cincy2h ago
Wynn signed a one-year contract with the Bengals on Friday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Wynn collected just 4.5 sacks in five seasons with the Giants, but he was a valuable contributor on special teams and will provide the Bengals with some depth and versatility along the defensive line as well.
Bryan Witzmann CHI G
Browns' Bryan Witzmann: Signed by Cleveland2h ago
Witzmann was signed by the Browns on Friday.
Witzmann has started 20 of 37 career games after entering the league as an undrafted free agent with the Texans in 2014. The 6-foot-7, 320 pounder will provide depth at guard alongside fellow newcomer Eric Kush.
Kemoko Turay IND DE
Colts' Kemoko Turay: Figures to come off bench2h ago
Turay will likely come off the bench at defensive end following the Colts' signing of edge rusher Justin Houston, Joel Erickson of IndyStar.com reports.
Turay racked up four sacks and 15 tackles in 385 defensive snaps as a rookie in 2018, but Houston figures to replace Turay in the starting lineup across from Jabaal Sheard. Turay played less than 25 snaps in each of his last seven contests, however, so his role was already somewhat diminished near the end of the 2018 campaign.
George Hill MIL PG
Bucks' George Hill: Cleared for Friday12m ago
Hill (groin) will play Friday against the Heat, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Hill missed Wednesday's game due to a sore groin, but he's back following a one-game absence. It's possible he takes on a slightly expanded role in Malcolm Brogdon's (foot) absence.
Sterling Brown MIL SG
Bucks' Sterling Brown: Will play Friday14m ago
Brown (wrist) will play Friday against the Heat, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
A wrist injury has kept Brown on the shelf since Feb. 25. He's averaging 16.0 minutes this season, but it's possible we see his role expand in the absence of Malcolm Brogdon (foot) and Nikola Mirotic (thumb).
Jakob Poeltl SA C
Spurs' Jakob Poeltl: Coming off bench Friday16m ago
Poeltl will come off the bench Friday against the Rockets, Jabari Young of The Athletic reports.
Coach Gregg Popovich is opting to start Rudy Gay over Poeltl. In 50 appearances off the bench this season, the center is averaging 5.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 14.5 minutes.
Rudy Gay SA SF
Spurs' Rudy Gay: Starting Friday17m ago
Gay will start Friday against the Rockets, Jabari Young of The Athletic reports.
Gay will get the nod over Jakob Poeltl. In 48 prior starts this season, Gay is averaging 14.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 27.4 minutes.
Joakim Noah MEM C
Grizzlies' Joakim Noah: Out Friday35m ago
Noah (knee) is out for Friday's matchup against the Magic.
As expected, the veteran will sit out the first half of a back-to-back set while dealing with some right knee soreness. Jonas Valanciunas and Ivan Rabb could see increased usage as a result.
Kenneth Faried HOU PF
Rockets' Kenneth Faried: Cleared to play42m ago
Faried (knee) will play Friday against the Spurs, Salman Ali of ESPN 97.5 Houston reports.
As expected, Faried will play after missing two of the past three games. Across his past four appearances, he's averaging 9.0 points and 5.5 rebounds in 17.3 minutes.
Carl Hagelin WAS LW
Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Late scratch Friday21m ago
Hagelin was scratched from Friday's lineup versus the Wild due to illness.
Hagelin's absence opens the door for Chandler Stephenson to draw in, though Stephenson doesn't present as much upside from a fantasy standpoint. Hagelin has had a down year overall, but he's heated up since joining the Caps, collecting eight points over 13 games and three in the last two. With Friday out of the picture, the veteran winger will take aim at returning Sunday against the Flyers.
Jacob Middleton SJ D
Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Headed back to minors1h ago
The Sharks sent Middleton back to AHL San Jose on Friday.
Middleton didn't draw into Monday's game against the Golden Knights, so he will take his place back among the minor-league ranks to make room for Nick DeSimone's promotion. The 23-year-old defenseman owns a plus-14 rating, marking his highest upside from a fantasy standpoint considering he's collected just 18 points in 50 games.
Libor Sulak DET D
Red Wings' Libor Sulak: Won't play Saturday2h ago
Sulak (illness) won't be in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Golden Knights.
Sulak will miss a third consecutive contest Saturday, but he's only dealing with an illness rather than an injury, so he could be ready to return as soon as Monday against the Sharks. The 25-year-old blueliner has gone scoreless in six appearances with the big club this season.
Ross Johnston NYI LW
Islanders' Ross Johnston: Only 17 games played this season2h ago
Johnston has been a healthy scratch for the past seven games and only played 17 games this season.
The Islanders are mired in a goal-scoring slump as they have been held scoreless in back to back games and only have 10 goals in their last seven contests. Johnston isn't likely the answer to the Isles offensive problems as goal scoring is not his biggest talent, but perhaps his physicality would open up the ice for more skilled players. Still, Johnston is only likely to see the ice if a forward were to come down with an illness or an injury.
Nick DeSimone SJ D
Sharks' Nick DeSimone: Back with big club2h ago
The Sharks recalled DeSimone from AHL San Jose on Friday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old blueliner has yet to make his debut at the top level, but he's proven to be an offensive threat with AHL San Jose, notching 39 points over 55 games. With six other players currently healthy on the roster, there's no guarantee he will make his debut this time around either.
Joe Pavelski SJ RW
Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Unavailable against Anaheim2h ago
Pavelski (undisclosed) won't play Friday against the Ducks, NHL.com's Dan Arritt reports.
Although Pavelski won't play Friday, he's still considered day-to-day with his undisclosed issue, which suggests he could be ready to return as soon as Monday against the Red Wings. Gustav Nyquist will continue to skate on the Sharks' top line until Pavelski is ready to rejoin the lineup.
