  • Jacob deGrom NYM SP
    Mets' Jacob deGrom: Bumped back to Friday
    5m ago

    DeGrom will start Friday against the Nationals rather than Thursday against the Cubs as previously expected, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    DeGrom does not appear to be dealing with any injury. He threw 99 pitches in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies, while Joey Lucchesi threw just 55 in the nightcap, so Lucchesi will move in front of deGrom in the rotation for now.

    Garcia (COVID-19 injured list) was activated Tuesday, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

    He is not in the lineup but will be available off the bench. Garcia is 1-for-3 while appearing in five games this season -- an indication that he will primarily be used off the bench for the foreseeable future.

    Alvarez (COVID-19 injured list) was activated but is not starting Tuesday in Coors Field, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

    Nationals' Seth Romero: Shut down with rib injury
    8m ago

    Romero is dealing with a rib injury and is unable to throw, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Romero suffered the injury while throwing a pitch last week. It's unclear exactly when he'll get back on the mound, but manager Dave Martinez said Tuesday that the lefty will be "out for a while," so he's unlikely to help the big-league roster any time soon.

    Astros' Lance McCullers: Next start coming on homestand
    11m ago

    McCullers (illness) will make his next start on the upcoming homestand, which begins Thursday against the Angels, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

    This is pretty vague, as the Astros' homestand runs from April 22 through April 29, but considering McCullers is dealing with a non-COVID illness, one would assume he has a chance to start this weekend against the Angels. Luis Garcia is getting a spot start Tuesday in Coors Field.

    Brewers' Luis Urias: On bench Tuesday
    11m ago

    Urias (calf) will sit Tuesday against the Padres, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Urias exited Monday's game due to calf cramps, and the issue is evidently serious enough for him to sit for at least one more game. The Brewers have an off day Thursday, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see Urias sit Wednesday as well in order to get three straight days to heal. Daniel Robertson will play shortstop in his absence.

    Buccaneers' Ryan Griffin: Staying with Tampa
    8h ago

    Griffin is re-signing with the Buccaneers.

    Griffin was the team's No. 3 quarterback last season, stuck behind Tom Brady and Blaine Gabbert all year. Gabbert is currently a free agent, but the Bucs still have plenty of time to re-sign him or bring in someone else to compete for the backup job. At the moment, Brady and Griffin are the only QBs on the roster.

  • Jordan Reed SF TE
    Jordan Reed: Ending NFL career
    9h ago

    Reed is retiring from football, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    The 2013 third-round pick played six seasons for Washington and one for San Francisco, peaking in 2015 with an 87/952/11 receiving line in 14 games. Reed missed multiple games every year, including an entire season in 2019. He might've been a regular Pro Bowler with better injury luck, as he averaged 5.4 catches for 56.5 yards per game over his first four NFL seasons, hauling in 75.8 percent of his targets in the process.

    Dolphins' D.J. Fluker: Lands in Miami
    21h ago

    Fluker agreed to terms on a contract with the Dolphins on Monday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Fluker, who started eight games for the Ravens last season, will bring a veteran presence to Miami's offensive line ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft. The 30-year-old is capable of playing either tackle spot, as well as guard, so he'll no doubt be given the opportunity to carve out a significant role.

    Cardinals' Ezekiel Turner: Sticking in Arizona
    22h ago

    Turner signed his ERFA tender with the Cardinals on Monday, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Turner has been a standout contributor on special teams over the last three seasons, which once again could give him a path to a roster spot. Of course, as a player who only handled five defensive snaps in 2020, he's well off the radar in IDP formats.

    Seahawks' Bryan Mone: Sticking in Seattle
    22h ago

    Mone (ankle) signed his ERFA tender with the Seahawks on Monday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

    Mone missed six regular-season games in 2020 due to a significant ankle injury, but he managed to retake the field for Seattle's final three games of the year. Now healthy, he'll spend the offseason competing to retain a similar role for the 2021 campaign.

    Miller (opt out) plans to play during the 2021 season, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Pacers' Domantas Sabonis: Out vs. former team Wednesday
    2m ago

    Sabonis (back) will not play Wednesday against the Thunder.

    A sore lower back kept Sabonis from playing in Monday's loss to the Spurs, and he'll miss another game as the Pacers move through a four-game Week 18. Following Wednesday's contest, Indiana is off Thursday and Friday before a home matchup against Detroit. With Myles Turner (toe) out and Goga Bitadze (ankle) questionable, coach Nate Bjorkgren may have to get creative with his frontcourt pairings.

    Lowry (rest) isn't listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

    The 35-year-old rested the past four contests and has seen action in only one game so far in April, but it appears he's on track to play Wednesday versus the Nets. Lowry can't be trusted for consistent playing time week-to-week given Toronto's recent lineup trends, though for now he's set to take the court against Brooklyn.

    Devils' P.K. Subban: Placed in COVID-19 protocol
    18m ago

    Subban was added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Sunday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

    Barring a last-minute change, this will rule Subban out for Tuesday's game in Pittsburgh. The 31-year-old has five goals and 19 points in 44 games this season. He'll be questionable for Thursday's rematch with the Penguins and will likely be replaced by Connor Carrick in the meantime.

    Rantanen joins his teammates Joonas Donskoi and Philipp Grubauer on the NHL's protocols list.

The 24-year-old has 26 goals and 52 points through 43 games this season.

    Bruins' Jack Ahcan: Back on taxi squad

    Ahcan has joined the Bruins' taxi squad in advance of Tuesday's game against the Sabres, Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe reports.

    The same applies to Urho Vaakanainen, as the pair are on hand to provide depth as the Bruins commence a five-game road trip. Ahcan, who has recorded a goal and nine points in 15 games for AHL Providence, has seen action in two games with the big club this season. He'll continue to act as a spare defenseman for the team until multiple fellow blueliners are out.

  • Jeremy Swayman BOS G
    Bruins' Jeremy Swayman: Likely to start Thursday
    2h ago

    Swayman is "tentatively slotted" to start Thursday's game against the Sabres , Eric Russo of the Bruins' official site reports.

    Meanwhile, Tuukka Rask will start Tuesday and likely again versus the Sabres on Friday, while Swayman's projected Thursday turn hinges on the availability of Jaroslav Halak, who was removed from COVID protocol this past Saturday. Given how well Swayman has played in his stint with the Bruins, the team can afford not to rush Halak back into the lineup, but once he's ready to go, look for Swayman to be returned to AHL Providence, where he'd be in line to work in a rotation with Daniel Vladar.

According to head coach Dave Tippett, the 28-year-old had a good practice Tuesday and will be evaluated again Wednesday with a chance to get back in the lineup. He has 12 goals and 28 points in 40 games this season.

    Price took a shot off his head in Monday's game against Edmonton and eventually left the contest despite finishing the first period. Now, he'll miss at least the next four games while dealing with a concussion. The 33-year-old owns a 2.64 GAA and .901 save percentage through 25 games and recently missed six games with a lower-body issue. Jake Allen will likely handle a bulk of the workload with Cayden Primeau serving as the backup.
