  • Isaiah Wilson TEN OT
    Dolphins' Isaiah Wilson: Dealt to Dolphins
    7h ago

    Wilson has been traded to the Dolphins along with a seventh-rounder 2022 in exchange for a 2021 seventh-rounder in 2021, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

    The price fro Wilson, the Titans' first-round draft pick in 2020, is shockingly low, but goes to show how far fractured his relationship with Tennessee had become. He played only four snaps during his rookie season and was eventually placed on the non-football injury list in December. Prior to that, he landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list twice. On top of all that, he also had a couple run-ins with the law. He will now look for a fresh start in Miami.

    Football Team's Brandon Scherff: Receives franchise tag
    8h ago

    Scherff has received the franchise tag from Washington, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    The franchise tag will mark the second consectuive one received by Scherff unless both aprties can come to terms on an extension. Either way, Washington has no intentions to let the No. 5 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft hit free agency. He has been named to the Pro Bowl in each of the last four years.

    Jets' Marcus Maye: Receives franchise tag
    9h ago

    The Jets placed the franchise tag on Maye on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Maye has averaged 4.9 tackles per game through four seasons, culminating in a career-high 88 stops in 2020. Through 54 career contests, the free safety also has accumulated six interceptions, four forced fumbles, 2.5 sacks and one fumble recovery. Assuming the Jets are unable to reach a long-term deal with Maye by July 15 and he puts pen to paper on the tag, he'll earn $10.5 million in the coming campaign, per Schefter.

    Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Gets $126 million guaranteed
    9h ago

    The Cowboys and Prescott (ankle) agreed to a four-year, $160 million contract, which includes $126 million guaranteed, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Among the terms of the deal, Prescott received a record-setting $66 million signing bonus and will earn $75 million in 2021, per Schefter. Schefter also noted the Cowboys will place the franchise tag on Prescott on Tuesday, which is a procedural move so they can't use the tag on the quarterback again in the future. With his home for the next four campaigns known, Prescott will resume his recovery from a season-ending ankle injury with an aim toward being healthy for training camp.

    Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Reaches agreement on new deal
    9h ago

    The Cowboys and Prescott (ankle) reached an agreement on a new contract Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    The terms of the deal have not been revealed, but Prescott is destined to avoid the franchise tag for a second straight season and instead will remain in Dallas for the long term. He's in the midst of his recovery from a brutal season-ending from Week 5 of the last campaign, but there's an expectation that he'll be healthy enough to take the field by training camp.

  • Trent Brown LV OT
    Raiders' Trent Brown: Could be traded
    11h ago

    The Raiders have made Brown (knee) available for trade, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    Brown is on the trade block, though Fowler also notes that the Raiders could consider retaining him for 2021. Were it not for the soon-to-be 28-year-old's $13.75 million salary for next season, Las Vegas likely wouldn't even be considering parting ways with Brown. As is, though, the team is in a tricky position, especially considering that two starters along the O-line (Gabe Jackson and Richie Incognito) are already being let go.

  • Justin Upton LAA LF
    Angels' Justin Upton: Launches two homers Monday
    1h ago

    Upton went 2-for-2 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in Monday's Cactus League loss to Milwaukee.

    The veteran outfielder went deep in both the second and fourth innings, bringing his spring long-ball total to a team-leading three. It's only exhibition play, of course, but the strong start bodes well for Upton after he struggled to a career-worst .204/.289/.422 slash line during the abbreviated 2020 campaign.

  • Julio Urias LAD SP
    Dodgers' Julio Urias: Pitches three perfect frames Monday
    1h ago

    Urias held the White Sox scoreless and hitless over three innings in a Cactus League contest Monday. He struck out one batter.

    Per Eric Stephen of SBNation.com, Urias was originally scheduled to throw only two innings in the exhibition game, but he made it through the first two frames so efficiently (12 pitches) that he ended up going out for a third. Altogether, the left-hander tossed 26 pitches, retiring all nine batters he faced. Urias appears to have an inside track to a rotation spot to open the campaign, and he clearly helped strengthen his case for the role with his effort Monday.

  • Gavin Lux LAD 2B
    Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Thriving in Cactus League play
    1h ago

    Lux is hitting .455 (5-for-11) with a pair of RBI in four spring contests.

    Four of Lux's five hits have gone for singles, but that hasn't reduced the organization's outlook for the 23-year-old. After spending much of 2020 at the team's alternate training site, Lux has a legitimate shot at claiming the lead role at second base by Opening Day, especially if he can continue showing that his bat is ready for the big leagues throughout the spring.

    Reds' Cam Bedrosian: Getting strikeouts so far
    1h ago

    Bedrosian had three strikeouts and a walk in a scoreless inning Monday against the Rockies, following up his debut last week where he struck out the side. His fastball sat at 90-91 mph, touching 92 mph, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Bedrosian actually threw a little harder last season, averaging 92.3 mph for the Angels, but struggled to convert that into strikeouts, striking out 11 in 14.2 innings. It was a bit of a surprise that the Angels let him walk and that the Reds were able to sign him on a minor league deal. So far he's done well to make the case that he belongs on the team.

    Reds' Noe Ramirez: Focus on offspeed offerings
    2h ago

    Ramirez pitched in a simulated game Monday in Reds camp in which he struck out three batters, working on his change-up and slider, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Ramirez had struggled with those pitches in his first two spring training games, allowing four runs in two innings. "It's pretty much tuning up for the year," Ramirez said. "During these times, the first couple outings are all about feel, especially with me. I'm pretty erratic with my mechanics, so it takes me a little bit to really get dialed in again."

  • Tejay Antone CIN RP
    Reds' Tejay Antone: Another good outing
    2h ago

    Antone threw three scoreless innings against the Rockies on Monday, striking out three with no walks, while allowing two hits.

    The difference between this outing and his previous spring training appearance was that Antone started this game, and got to work on his pre-start routine a little more. A report on Friday suggested that Michael Lorenzen is the leading candidate for the fifth starter's job, but Antone continues to make a pretty good case for the role.

    Mason Jones: Waived by Houston
    8h ago

    Jones was waived by the Rockets on Monday, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Jones was cut loose to make room for the signing of Anthony Lamb, who was brought in on a two-way contract. Jones appeared in 22 games during the first half of the 2020 season, averaging 5.5 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 11.1 minutes.

    Hawks' Cam Reddish: Undergoes non-surgical procedure
    10h ago

    Reddish (Achilles) underwent a non-surgical procedure to address soreness in his right Achilles, Marc Spears of The Undefeated reports.

    Reddish missed the last six games before the break, and it looks like he'll be set to miss a string of games when the Hawks resume play Thursday at Toronto. The second-year wing was placed in a walking boot and will be re-evaluated in roughly a week. That timeline knocks him out for at least the Hawks' next three games, but there's a good chance he'll miss additional time beyond that stretch.

  • Anthony Lamb HOU F
    Rockets' Anthony Lamb: Signs two-way deal with Rockets
    10h ago

    Lamb agreed to a two-way contract with the Rockets on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    The former Vermont standout has been playing in the G League bubble with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, where he's averaging 18.2 points, 8.8 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks through six contests. The undrafted free agent will join the Rockets out of the All-Star break, adding depth at forward for a team that was dealing with a number of injuries to players like Christian Wood (ankle), David Nwaba (wrist) and Danuel House (knee) entering the break.

  • Kaleb Wesson NBADRAFT C
    Kaleb Wesson: Solid effort in return
    12h ago

    Wesson (knee) posted four points (2-3 FG), seven rebounds and seven assists across 13 minutes in Monday's 110-81 playoff win over G League Rio Grande.

    Wesson handled a limited role in his first appearance in over a week, but he still managed to finish second on the G League squad in assists. Distributing the ball wasn't Wesson's strength during the regular season, as he averaged 11.7 points, 9.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists per contest, but it's nevertheless a welcome addition. Santa Cruz will move onto the semifinal round Tuesday. Wesson figures to come off the bench once again.

    Hinton (ankle) didn't play in Monday's 110-81 playoff win over G League Rio Grande.

    Hinton has also missed games with a hip injury and an illness this season. The 21-year-old has produced 9.7 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game this year while hitting 41.8 percent of his field goals. His next chance to play is in Tuesday's semifinal game.

    Thunder's Moses Brown: Another double-double Saturday
    12h ago

    Brown tallied 18 points (7-13 FG, 2-3 FT), 13 rebounds, two steals and two blocks during Saturday's loss to Santa Cruz.

    Brown bounced back offensively in this one, as the center was struggling over his previous two outings averaging just 9.0 points per contest. His team high off the glass Saturday also marked his second straight and 11th overall double-double of the season. Brown is currently dropping 18.5 points and 13.9 rebounds per appearance.

  • Alex Goligoski ARI D
    Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Finally back on scoresheet
    2h ago

    Goligoski recorded an assist and two blocked shots in Monday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche.

    Goligoski had the secondary helper on Jakob Chychrun's first-period tally to give the Coyotes a 2-0 lead. It appears 2020-21 is when Goligoski's offense has fallen off a cliff. The helper Monday was just his second of the season. He's added 49 blocked shots, 37 hits, 29 shots on net and a minus-2 rating in 25 games. At 35 years old, it's not surprising to see Goligoski's offense decline, but many fantasy managers probably assumed a more gradual slide. He has topped 30 points in all but two of the last 11 years, but it'll take a significant turnaround for him to even reach 20 this year.

  • Phil Kessel ARI RW
    Coyotes' Phil Kessel: Ends drought with helper
    2h ago

    Kessel notched an assist in Monday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche.

    Kessel set up Oliver Ekman-Larsson for a shot in the third period, and Johan Larsson tipped it in to give the Coyotes a lead. The 33-year-old Kessel entered Monday with a four-game point drought, which came on the heels of a five-game streak. In a word, he's been streaky in 2020-21. The Wisconsin native is up to eight goals, nine helpers, 43 shots on net and a minus-8 rating in 25 appearances.

    Canadiens' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Picks up power-play assist
    2h ago

    Kotkaniemi recorded a power-play assist and four hits in Monday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Canucks.

    Kotkaniemi is in a bit of a groove with four helpers in his last six games. Three of those assists have come with the man advantage. The third-line center is up to 12 points, a plus-7 rating, 39 shots on net and 35 hits through 24 contests.

    Canadiens' Tomas Tatar: Generates power-play helper
    2h ago

    Tatar produced a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Canucks.

    Tatar set up Jeff Petry for the Canadiens' lone goal of the game. The 30-year-old Tatar is up to 16 points, 40 shots on net and 30 hits through 23 contests. The Czech winger continues to see top-six usage, and it's well earned lately -- he has six helpers in his last four games, with three of them coming on the power play.

  • Jeff Petry MON D
    Canadiens' Jeff Petry: Lights lamp on power play
    2h ago

    Petry scored a power-play goal on two shots and blocked a pair of shots in Monday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Canucks.

    Petry's first-period marker looked to be all the scoring in the game until Adam Gaudette equalized for the Canucks late in the third. The 33-year-old Petry is up to nine goals, 23 points, 63 shots on net, 38 hits, 28 blocked shots and a plus-15 rating in 24 appearances. He's tied with the Canucks' Quinn Hughes for second in scoring among defensemen -- one point behind the Lightning's Victor Hedman. Petry hasn't gone more than two games without a point in 2020-21. It may be a long shot, but Petry could earn some Norris Trophy buzz if he can keep this level of play up for another two months. His solid surface numbers are backed up by strong advanced starts. The Canadiens have a 57.5 percent share of the shot attempts when Petry is on the ice at five-on-five, and he's helped them to a combined shooting and save percentage of 102.8 in those situations.

  • Carey Price MON G
    Canadiens' Carey Price: Denied shutout in Monday's loss
    2h ago

    Price stopped 28 of 29 shots in Monday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Canucks.

    Price came within 41 seconds of a shutout, but Adam Gaudette spoiled the goalie's spotless game. Bo Horvat then denied Price the win with the lone shootout tally. Despite a great outing, Price fell to 7-4-4 with a 2.69 GAA and a .903 save percentage in 15 games. Price has allowed just three goals in his last three games, so perhaps he's shaken off a recent rough stretch. The Canadiens and Canucks meet again Wednesday.
