    • Dylan Bundy BAL SP
      Orioles' Dylan Bundy: Throws complete-game gem
      13m ago

      Bundy (3-6) allowed three earned runs on two hits while walking one and striking out 14 across nine innings to earn the win Thursday against the White Sox.

      Bundy was given a nine-run cushion by the third inning and he took advantage by pummeling the strike zone, throwing 85 of his 121 pitches for strikes. He generated 20 swinging strikes, aiding him to a career-best 14 strikeouts. The sole blemish on his line came on a three-run home by Jose Rondon in the fourth inning. In three starts since allowing seven earned runs without recording an out in his May 8 start, Bundy has given up only seven earned runs across 22 innings while striking out 29.

    • Alex Gordon KC LF
      Royals' Alex Gordon: Scratched from lineup
      2h ago

      Gordon was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Rangers with a stiff neck and sore hip.

      Gordon apparently suffered the pair of injuries while attempting to make a diving catch against the Cardinals on Wednesday. He should be considered day-to-day until the Royals confirm the severity of both issues. With Gordon out, Kansas City will go with an outfield consisting of Jon Jay, Whit Merrifield and Jorge Soler from left to right in this one.

      Blue Jays' Dwight Smith: Hits first career homer
      3h ago

      Smith went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

      Making his first career start in the leadoff spot, Smith hit his first career homer, accounting for all of the Blue Jays' offense in this one. He was just making a spot start, subbing in for the resting Curtis Granderson in left. Smith will continue on as the team's fourth outfielder for now, but his roster spot could be in jeopardy once Randal Grichuk (knee) completes his rehab assignment.

      Angels' Albert Pujols: Smacks seventh homer
      3h ago

      Pujols went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Thursday's win over the Blue Jays.

      The homer was his seventh of the season but his first since May 2. Pujols' triple-slash numbers are all up slightly from a season ago, but his skills have deteriorated greatly in recent years and at this point he hardly moves the needle in most fantasy leagues.

    • Micker Adolfo CHW RF
      White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Scheduled for another MRI
      3h ago

      Adolfo will undergo an MRI in the coming weeks to determine whether he can start a throwing program, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports.

      Adolfo has been shut down from throwing for two months thanks to a sprained UCL and strained flexor tendon in his right elbow. While the injury has limited the 21-year-old to DH duties, it hasn't hindered his performance at the plate, as he's slashing an impressive .301/.404/.506 with six homers across 44 games with High-A Winston-Salem.

      Mets' Yoenis Cespedes: Takes BP Thursday

      Cespedes (hip) took batting practice on the field prior to Thursday's matchup against Milwaukee, Tim Britton of The Athletic New York reports.

      Cespedes took the next step in his recovery process by getting in some swings during batting practice -- this was the first time he's been able to participate in BP since hitting the disabled list May 13. His timetable for a return remains unclear, but it's good news that he was finally able to swing a bat.

      Fluker sat out Thursday's practice due to knee soreness, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

      Fluker's injury doesn't appear to be severe and the team is merely resting him to avoid worsening the issue. He's expected to be back in action in the near future.

      Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Signing with Packers
      2h ago

      Lewis signed a contract with the Packers on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

      Lewis played for the Jaguars over the last 12 seasons, consistently showing value as block-first tight end. With Jimmy Graham and Lance Kendricks on the roster as well, Lewis likely doesn't have a high ceiling as far as fantasy value goes. He did catch five touchdowns with Jacksonville in 2017 however, and he may get a few red zone targets if he's able to stick around in Green Bay.

      Armstead has been a full participant at the Saints' OTAs, Joel A. Erickson of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.

      Armstead played through a torn hip flexor in the 2017 season and has been rehabbing the injury throughout the offseason. He now looks to be back to full strength and will again look to solidify the team's offensive line in 2018.

      Stupar is a full participant at the Saints' OTAs, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

      Stupar tore his ACL last October, ending his season prematurely. Now healthy and able to practice fully, he'll look to solidify his role on the defense and be a significant contributor behind starting linebackers Craig Robertson, Demario Davis, and A.J. Klein.

      Anzalone (shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's OTA practice session, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

      Anzalone ended the 2017 on Injured reserve after undergoing shoulder surgery. He's now back without limitation and he isn't expected to be hindered by the injury going forward.

      Rivers (knee) practiced without limitation during OTAs, Andy Hart of the Patriots' official site reports.

      Rivers, the Patriots' third-round pick in 2017, spent the year on Injured Reserve due to a torn ACL. He's been rehabbing for the past several months and says that he's now back without limitation. He'll look to stay healthy and be a contributor for the defense in 2018.

      Warriors' Klay Thompson: In for Game 5

      Thompson (knee) will play during Thursday's Game 5 against Houston, Anthony Slater of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

      Thompson suffered a minor knee strain during Game 4, but is apparently feeling good enough to take the floor after going through pre-game activities. He played 39 minutes during Game 4, but went just 4-of-13 from the field for 10 points.

      Warriors' Andre Iguodala: Out for Game 5

      Iguodala (knee) is out for Thursday's Game 5 against Houston, Anthony Slater of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

      Iguodala didn't play in the Warriors' Game 4 loss and was later deemed a game-time call for Game 5. After going through some pre-game activity, it appears that the veteran is still in too much discomfort to take the floor. When Iguodala was out for Game 4, Kevon Looney drew the start, playing 26 minutes and posting four points, six rebounds, one assist and one block.

      Warriors' Klay Thompson: Expected to play in Game 5
      8h ago

      Head coach Steve Kerr said he expects Thompson (knee) to play in Game 5 against the Rockets on Thursday, Mark Medina of the Mercury News reports.

      Thompson suffered a minor knee strain in Game 4 on Tuesday, but indicated shortly after the contest that he wasn't going to miss time. That optimism was echoed by coach Kerr following Thursday's morning shootaround, so if all goes as expected during pregame warmups, look for Thompson to take the court as usual. The Warriors are currently listing Andre Iguodala (knee) as a game-time decision, though he was able to get shots up at shootaround, so the Warriors could be getting their veteran back in the fold as well.

      Warriors' Andre Iguodala: Will be game-time call
      8h ago

      Iguodala (knee) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's Game 5 against the Rockets, Mark Medina of the Mercury News reports.

      Iguodala was held out of the Warriors' Game 4 loss, despite being upgraded from "doubtful" to "questionable" in the hours leading up to tip-off. With another two days to recover, the hope is that the veteran will be cleared to return to the lineup, but official word likely won't come until after pregame warmups.

    • Marcus Morris BOS PF
      Celtics' Marcus Morris: Leads C's in minutes, despite not starting
      12h ago

      Morris generated 13 points (5-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt), six rebounds and one steal across 37 minutes in Wednesday's 96-83 ECF Game 5 win over the Cavaliers.

      Morris came of the bench in Game 5, but still led the Celtics in minutes played. Coach Brad Stevens decided to replace Morris in the starting lineup with Aron Baynes to counter Tristan Thompson's rugged rebounding. No matter, as Morris still delivered clutch three point shooting and contributed to a team defensive effort that appeared to exhaust LeBron James. Morris and his Celtics teammates will now try to wrap up the series Friday night in Cleveland.

    • Terry Rozier BOS PG
      Celtics' Terry Rozier: Three steals in Game 5 win
      12h ago

      Rozier delivered eight points (3-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, six assists and three steals across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 96-83 ECF Game 5 win over the Cavaliers.

      Rozier suffered another rough shooting night, but was a major part of Boston's successful defensive effort, helping limit the Cavs to only 83 points. Rozier's three steals stand out, but it was his ability to avoid being isolated on LeBron James that highlighted an improved Celtic approach on defense. The third year point guard is shooting a lowly 37 percent during the Eastern Conference Finals, yet Boston has a 3-2 lead. The Celtics will look to wrap up the series Friday night in Cleveland.

      Flyers' Samuel Morin: Likely sidelined until February with torn ACL
      3h ago

      Morin is expected to be sidelined until February after it was revealed Wednesday that he suffered a torn ACL, The Courier-Post reports.

      Morin was forced to wait more than two weeks to undergo surgery due to some irritation in the knee, but he's finally expected to undergo the procedure this week. The 2013 first-round pick has played reasonably well in the AHL the past few seasons and posted his best -- albeit injury-shortened -- effort in 2017-2018 with seven points (one goal, six assists) and a plus-4 rating. The issue will derail any chance he has at making the Opening Night roster next season, but he could eventually earn a promotion if his health permits late in the campaign.

    • Ryan Suter MIN D
      Wild's Ryan Suter: Not ready to test injured ankle
      3h ago

      Suter is still unable to put any weight on his surgically-repaired right ankle, The Pioneer Press reports.

      It's been a month and a half since Suter went under the knife to repair his broken ankle, and he's reportedly been relying on crutches to get around. A veteran who's been known to log huge minutes on the blue line, Suter logged 51 points (six goals, 45 assists) to complement one goal and 22 helpers on the power play over 78 regular-season games this past season, though he missed the entire first-round playoff series against the Jets. His injury may not be career-threatening as it was initially believed, but this report indicates that Suter is "still a few weeks away" from putting weight on the ankle.

    • Ryan Callahan TB RW
      Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Will undergo offseason surgery
      4h ago

      Callahan will need shoulder surgery over the summer to repair a persistent injury.

      Although Callahan only missed two games in the postseason due to his shoulder issue, it likely factored into his limited productivity, as he managed a mere three points, 15 shots and plus-1 rating in 15 playoff contests. Although the team didn't provide a specific timeline for the winger's recovery, there was no indication that he wouldn't be ready for the start of the 2018-19 campaign.

      Shattenkirk (knee) remains on schedule in his rehab and he'll resume skating in approximately one month, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

      The New York native last played Jan. 18 -- missing the final 36 games -- but there's been nothing to suggest that the star defenseman will get off to a late start in training camp. Shattenkirk recorded 23 points (five goals, 18 assists) over 46 contests as part of his debut season in The Big Apple, and with any luck in the health department, he could revert to being one of the premier fantasy options at the blue-line position.

    • Gabriel Bourque COL LW
      Avalanche's Gabriel Bourque: Re-signs with team
      8h ago

      Bourque agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Colorado on Thursday.

      After spending the bulk of the 2016-17 campaign in the minors, Bourque logged 58 games for the Avalanche this season. The 27-year-old tallied five goals, six assists and 44 shots, while averaging 10:54 of ice time. While the winger probably won't be filling a top-six role any time soon, if he can earn additional minutes, he could offer decent depth value in deeper formats -- especially in terms of hits and blocks, which he accrued in spades last year (123 and 59, respectively).

    • J.T. Miller TB RW
      Lightning's J.T. Miller: Woeful in conference finals
      9h ago

      Miller went minus-5 with a single assist in the conference finals loss to the Capitals.

      This is considered a huge disappointment after Miller generated 18 points (10 goals, eight assists) over 19 games following his trade from the Rangers in late February. It'll be interesting to see what Miller's next contract will look like, as he'll be a restricted free agent this summer after playing out a two-year deal valued at $2.75 million annually.
