Randall Cobb GB WR
Packers' Randall Cobb: Ditches walking boot1h ago
Cobb (foot) was spotted without a walking boot during his annual youth football camp Wednesday, Chris Roth of WBAY Green Bay reports.
Cobb, who was originally spotted in a walking boot at an airport last month, was seen demonstrating agility and footwork drills without a noticeable limp. When asked about his availability for training camp, the receiver indicated that he'll be "involved" even if the Packers' medical team doesn't fully clear him for all activities. While the nature of this injury remains a mystery, Cobb said Wednesday that "he'll get into that here soon when training camp rolls around." Green Bay requires veterans to report to camp July 27.
Darian Thompson NYG DB
Giants' Darian Thompson: Losing grip on starting role5h ago
Thompson will have to compete for the starting job at free safety in advance of the 2018 season, Art Stapleton of NorthJersey reports.
Thompson started all 16 games for the Giants last season, but his struggles in both run support and pass coverage made him a liability. Throughout spring workouts Thompson was replaced in the starting lineup by third-year safety Andrew Adams, suggesting the Boise State product has some work to do in order to open the 2018 campaign with the first-team defense.
Andrew Adams NYG DB
Giants' Andrew Adams: Competing for starting role5h ago
Adams is competing for the starting job at free safety, Art Stapleton of NorthJersey reports.
Adams rolled with the first-string defense during OTAs and minicamp this spring, which suggests he should be considered the favorite to win the job in advance of training camp. His primary competition, Darian Thompson, was the team's starter at free safety in all 16 games last season, but the 2016 third-rounder struggled in run support and ultimately finished the year as Pro Football Focus' 76th graded safety (out of 89 qualifiers).
Jermaine Kearse NYJ WR
Jets' Jermaine Kearse: Likely to stay on team7h ago
Kearse is unlikely to be a cap casualty, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post.
Other beat writers have speculated that Kearse's non-guaranteed $5.5 million salary could put his roster spot in jeopardy, even though the Jets will enter training camp with around $20 million in cap space, per OverTheCap. The 28-year-old was a pleasant surprise during his first year in New York, establishing career highs for catches (65), targets (103) and receiving yards (810). The Jets signed Terrelle Pryor (ankle) and hope to have Quincy Enunwa (neck) healthy, but Kearse is still the favorite to get regular playing time opposite Robby Anderson. The only way it would make sense for the Jets to release Kearse is an unlikely scenario in which some combination of Pryor, Enunwa, Chad Hansen and ArDarius Stewart clearly outplay Kearse during training camp and the preseason.
Daniel Lasco NO RB
Daniel Lasco: Cut by Saints10h ago
Lasco (neck) has been waived by the Saints, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Following a failed physical, the Saints are cutting ties with Lasco to free up a roster spot for veteran pass-catching back Shane Vereen. The 2016 seventh-round pick played jus 38 snaps in 2017, all on special teams. He was placed on injured reserve in mid-November after a scary collision caused a bulging disc in his neck and a concussion.
Randall Cobb GB WR
Packers' Randall Cobb: Plans to practice soon10h ago
Cobb (foot) plans to be involved during training camp and isn't sure if he will have any restrictions, Chris Barriere of NBC 26 Green Bay reports.
Spotted in a walking boot after June minicamp, Cobb hasn't elaborated on the nature of his injury. He wasn't wearing the boot at his annual football camp Wednesday, and he said he'll talk to the Packers' medical staff to formulate a plan for training camp. There doesn't seem to be much concern regarding Cobb's availability for Week 1, but it won't come as any surprise if he's eased into practice over the next few weeks. The veteran slot receiver will turn 28 in August and is looking to rebound from back-to-back seasons with less than 700 receiving yards.
Drew Pomeranz BOS SP
Red Sox's Drew Pomeranz: Successful rehab start2h ago
Pomeranz (biceps) threw 69 pitches in a rehab start for Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday, giving up one run on a hit and a pair of walks while striking out five in six innings.
Pomeranz has been out since late May with biceps tendinitis. He's now made four rehab appearances and could be set to return to Boston after the break. The Red Sox could use help in their rotation after Eduardo Rodriguez went down with an ankle injury Sunday.
Breyvic Valera LAD 2B
Orioles' Breyvic Valera: Shipped to Baltimore3h ago
Valera was traded to the Orioles on Wednesday as part of the Manny Machado deal, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Valera appeared in 20 games for the Dodgers this season but struggled to make an impact, hitting just .172/.273/.172. The 26-year-old infielder should have a far easier time carving out a regular role in Baltimore and will have a friendly home park in which to do so. He won't get the opportunity right away, though, as he's been optioned to Triple-A Norfolk.
Manny Machado BAL SS
Dodgers' Manny Machado: Agreement reached for Dodgers deal5h ago
Machado will be sent to the Dodgers after the team reached a deal with Baltimore to send five players back in exchange, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.
The deal has reportedly been close for over a day and appears to have been finally completed. The package will be headlined by Double-A outfielder Yusniel Diaz and also includes Dean Kremer, Zach Pop, Rylan Bannon and Breyvic Valera. The move will see Machado get a large upgrade in lineup to offset a similar downgrade in home park.
Josh Harrison PIT 2B
Pirates' Josh Harrison: Chance for return this weekend6h ago
Harrison (hamstring) will participate in a workout Thursday that will determine his availability for Friday's series opener in Cincinnati, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.
Though a return to the field for Friday's game seems a tad optimistic, the club appears confident that Harrison avoided any major injury when he suffered the hamstring discomfort during Sunday's game against Milwaukee. Even if he passes with flying colors, the Pirates may elect to give Harrison a couple more days off in order to be certain of his health.
Nick Tropeano LAA SP
Angels' Nick Tropeano: Lined up for Saturday's start6h ago
Tropeano (shoulder) will take the hill against Houston on Saturday.
Tropeano has been on the 10-day DL since June 15 due to right shoulder inflammation. The 27-year-old was able to make a second rehab start with High-A Inland Empire on Saturday, and didn't experience any physical issues, though he did allow three runs (two earned) on seven hits across four innings of work. Through 10 starts for the Angles this year, he's logged a 4.83 ERA and 1.25 WHIP.
Matt Albers MIL RP
Brewers' Matt Albers: Starts rehab assignment6h ago
Albers (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Wisconsin on Wednesday.
Albers has been on the shelf since the middle of June due shoulder inflammation. He was able too throw a pair of bullpen sessions last weekend and will likely require a couple outings at the minor-league level before reporting back to the Brewers bullpen.
Isaiah Whitehead DEN SG
Isaiah Whitehead: Officially waived by Denver5h ago
Whitehead (wrist) was waived by the Nuggets on Tuesday.
Whitehead was traded to the Nuggets last week as part of a salary dump from Denver, as Brooklyn took on the contracts of both Kenneth Faried and Darrell Arthur. Whitehead is yet to make much of an impact at the professional level, but as soon as he clears waivers, he'll be free to sign on with any team before the start of training camp.
Antonio Blakeney CHI SG
Bulls' Antonio Blakeney: Signing minimum deal with Chicago9h ago
Blakeney will sign a two-year, minimum contract with the Bulls on Thursday, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Blakeney appeared in 19 games with the young Bulls last season and averaged 7.9 points while on a two-way contract. After being named G League Rookie of the Year for his work on the Windy City Bulls, he'll now be a full-time member of Chicago and provide some decent depth on the wing.
Svi Mykhailiuk LAL SF
Lakers' Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Tallies 10 points to close out SL play10h ago
Mykhailiuk generated 10 points (3-10 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 23 minutes during the Lakers' 91-73 loss to the Trail Blazers in the Las Vegas Summer League championship game Tuesday.
Although he closed out summer league play in modest fashion relative to his other efforts, Mykailiuk still set the stage for a strong training camp and preseason with a sensational body of work overall in Las Vegas. The rookie finished with averages of 16.6 points (on 48.0 percent shooting), 4.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists across 24.7 minutes over seven games, displaying a deft shooting touch from all over the court in nearly every contest. He'll look to continue making an equally strong impression this fall in an attempt to secure a steady second-unit backcourt role during his first NBA campaign.
Josh Hart LAL SG
Lakers' Josh Hart: Team-leading scoring total in SL championship loss10h ago
Hart managed 12 points (3-12 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 6-9 FT), two assists and two rebounds across 22 minutes during the Lakers' 91-73 loss to the Trail Blazers in the Las Vegas Summer League championship game Tuesday.
Hart often was head and shoulders above the competition in Las Vegas, although Tuesday was one of his more modest performances. The second-year pro still finished summer league play with averages of 22.4 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals across 27.0 minutes over seven games while checking in third in scoring overall in the desert. He'll look to carry over his considerable momentum into training camp and preseason as the Lakers embark on a highly anticipated season, and he'll presumably have an opportunity to make a case for a solid backcourt rotation role.
Caleb Swanigan POR PF
Trail Blazers' Caleb Swanigan: Fills out stat sheet in SL championship win10h ago
Swanigan delivered seven points (3-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt), nine rebounds and five assists across 26 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 91-73 win over the Lakers in the Las Vegas Summer League championship game Tuesday.
Swanigan made well-rounded contributions in the championship game win, putting the finishing touches on a solid summer league resume for the second consecutive year. The 2017 first-round pick averaged 8.4 points, 10.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists across 26.3 minutes over seven games in Las Vegas, and he'll now try to parlay his momentum into a strong training camp and preseason. Swanigan only averaged 7.0 minutes per contest in his rookie season, so the Trail Blazers will undoubtedly be looking for a much better return on investment in the coming campaign.
Wade Baldwin IV POR PG
Trail Blazers' Wade Baldwin: Tallies 14 points in SL championship win10h ago
Baldwin provided 14 points (5-13 FG, 2-6 FT), six assists and four rebounds across 20 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 91-73 win over the Lakers in the Las Vegas Summer League championship game Tuesday.
The 22-year-old wrapped up a solid tenure in the desert with the second-highest scoring total for Portland on the night. The 2016 first-round pick finished with averages of 13.4 points (on 45.0 percent shooting), 7.4 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.1 steals across 25.4 minutes over seven contests. He'll now look to up his NBA opportunities in the coming season after logging only seven games of regular-season action with the Blazers in the 2017-18 campaign. However, he'll have a steep hill to climb in terms of playing time while navigating a crowded shooting guard depth chart.
Chris Tierney SJ C
Sharks' Chris Tierney: Inks deal with Sharks6h ago
Tierney signed a two-year, $5.875 million contract with the Sharks on Thursday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
After originally filing for salary arbitration a couple weeks ago, Tierney and the Sharks were finally able to settle on a number. Tierney is coming off a career season in San Jose, setting career highs in goals with 17 and assists with 23. Tierney will now be making nearly four times what his salary was in 2017-18 as a key offensive weapon off the bench for the Sharks.
Anthony Stolarz PHI G
Flyers' Anthony Stolarz: Secures one-year pact1d ago
Stolarz signed a one-year, two-way deal worth $761,250 on Monday, TSN reports.
It was a tough year for Stolarz, as he recovered from two knee surgeries and played just one game in the AHL and three games in the ECHL. The 6-foot-6, 210-pound netminder will likely spend most of his time in the minors again with Brian Elliott (abdomen) and Michael Neuvirth (hip) locking down the big club's crease.
Spencer Martin COL G
Avalanche's Spencer Martin: Secures another year with Avs1d ago
Martin signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Avalanche on Monday, TSN reports.
Martin didn't suit up in the NHL during 2017-18 and played 34 games with AHL San Antonio instead, producing a .893 save percentage and 3.10 GAA -- the worst stats of his minor-league career. Colorado acquired Phillipp Grubauer via trade from the Capitals and still have Semyon Varlamov (knee) on the roster, so it's tough to see a way Martin cracks the lineup besides an injury.
Kurtis MacDermid LA D
Kings' Kurtis MacDermid: Inks two-way deal with Los Angeles1d ago
MacDermid signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Kings on Sunday. The contract is worth $675,000 at the NHL level.
MacDermid saw the ice in 34 games for Los Angeles a season ago, logging a goal, three assists and 57 penalty minutes. Even if the 24-year-old ends up seeing a larger share of action in the NHL in 2018-19, he would likely receive limited ice time in a third-pairing role.
Tomas Nosek LV LW
Golden Knights' Tomas Nosek: Stays put in desert1d ago
Nosek secured a one-year, one-way contract worth $963,000 on Tuesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Nosek was a clutch contributor during the Golden Knights' unpredictable playoff run, scoring three goals against the Capitals in the Stanley Cup Finals. The 25-year-old had a more modest stat line during the regular season, with seven goals and 15 points in 67 games. Expect him to remain in the bottom-six for 2018-19.
Jimmy Vesey NYR LW
Rangers' Jimmy Vesey: Avoids arbitration, inks two-year deal1d ago
Vesey agreed to a two-year contract with the Rangers on Tuesday, Jim Cerny of Sporting News reports.
Vesey was thought to be headed for arbitration, but he's since signed a contract with New York. He collected 28 points (17 goals, 11 assists) through 79 games with the Rangers during the 2017-2018 campaign.
