    Bengals' Drue Chrisman: Signs to 53-man roster
    5m ago

    The Bengals signed Chrisman off their practice squad Tuesday.

    Since Cincinnati had already elevated Chrisman to their active roster the maximum of three times, all of which came the last three weeks, the 25-year-old's only chance to continue suiting up for the Bengals this season was for the team to sign him. In a corresponding move, Cincinnati waived their original starting punter Kevin Huber on Monday. Chrisman is now slated to handle punting duties for the rest of the 2022-23 campaign.

    Kawaan Baker: Done on Eagles' practice squad
    37m ago

    Philadelphia cut Baker from its practice squad Tuesday.

    Less than a full week after Baker signed onto the Eagles' practice squad, the team has already decided to part ways with him. The 2021 seventh-rounder has great size (6-foot-1, 215 lbs.) and speed (4.43-second 40), but he has yet to see an offensive snap in his young NFL career. Now he'll have to look for another opportunity elsewhere.

    37m ago

    Edwards recorded a team-leading six tackles (four solo) in Sunday's victory over the Titans.

    Edwards' tackle total matched his season low but was still enough to lead the team. He has just one takeaway on the season and two sacks, but he continues to be the best on the team at bringing down the ball carrier.

  • Chad Smith COL RP
    Rockies' Chad Smith: Traded to Oakland
    3m ago

    Smith was traded to the Athletics in exchange for Jeff Criswell on Tuesday.

    Smith received his first taste of major-league action in 2022, recording a 7.50 ERA and 1.72 WHIP over 18 innings out of the bullpen. Smith has always been able to strike out batters at an exceptional rate, however his inability to limit walks has gotten him into trouble quite a few times, especially in the majors. Until the 27-year-old righty can show consistent success on the mound, Smith should be approached with caution.

  • Andrew Heaney LAD SP
    Rangers' Andrew Heaney: Inks deal with Rangers
    1h ago

    Heaney signed a two-year, $25 million deal with the Rangers on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Heaney posted a 3.10 ERA and 1.09 WHIP with the Dodgers in 2022 -- career-bests in both categories. Now that he will play his home games in Globe Life Park rather than the pitcher-friendly Dodger Stadium, there's a chance both of those numbers will take a dip in 2023. That being said, if Heaney can maintain anything close to the 13.62 K/9 he recorded last season, there is still plenty of upside to be found with the 31-year-old lefty.

  • Josh Bell SD 1B
    Guardians' Josh Bell: Lands with Cleveland
    2h ago

    Bell signed a two-year, $33 million deal with the Guardians on Tuesday, which includes an opt-out after the first season, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    The Guardians won a postseason series last season despite ranking 29th as a team in home runs. Bell theoretically offers the team plenty of additional pop, as he homered 37 times back in 2019 and has topped 25 home runs in two other seasons. He suffered through a bit of a power outage last season, however, clearing the fence just 17 times while splitting time between the Nationals and Padres. He still managed a solid .266/.362/.422 slash line, though, and his 15.8 percent strikeout rate was quite strong. Assuming he rebounds from the slump he fell into after his midseason move to San Diego, he should offer the Guardians a well-rounded presence in the middle of their lineup

  • Jace Peterson MIL 3B
    Athletics' Jace Peterson: Lands in Oakland
    3h ago

    Peterson signed a two-year contract with the Athletics on Tuesday, Robert Murray of reports.

    Peterson recorded a 76 wRC+ through the end of his age-29 season, but he's posted a 98 wRC+ since turning 30 prior to the 2020 campaign. That doesn't make him much more than a part-time player, though the Athletics have enough holes on their roster that Peterson could feature regularly. Between his merely mediocre bat, tough home park and weak surrounding lineup, however, even an everyday role would leave Peterson without much fantasy appeal outside of deep leagues.

  • Vince Velasquez CHW RP
    Pirates' Vince Velasquez: Joins Pirates on one-year deal
    3h ago

    Velasquez signed a one-year, $3.15 million deal with the Pirates on Tuesday, Kiley McDaniel of reports.

    The 30-year-old righty stumbled to a 4.78 ERA as a swingman for the White Sox last season. He'll get to call one of the league's best pitchers' parks home in 2023, but the Pirates probably shouldn't expect a much better ERA, as Velasquez hasn't beaten that mark since all the way back in 2016. Those looking for signs of optimism could point to the fact that he managed a career-best 7.8 percent walk rate last season, but he also tied his career low with a 21.6 percent strikeout rate. His odds of securing a starting role may not become clear until the offseason is over, though the Pittsburgh rotation isn't exactly full of established arms.

  • Jarlin Garcia SF RP
    Pirates' Jarlin Garcia: Becomes a Pirate
    4h ago

    Garcia signed a one-year deal with the Pirates on Tuesday, Alex Stumpf of reports.

    Garcia will make $2.5 million in 2023, with Pittsburgh holding a club option for $3.25 million for 2024, per Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic. The lefty was designated for assignment by the Giants in November, but that came after a solid season in which he posted a 3.74 ERA. He's unlikely to add significantly to his career total of two saves this season, but he should still be a serviceable member of the Pittsburgh pen.

    12m ago

    McConnell (illness) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against Minnesota.

    McConnell has already missed back-to-back games due to an illness. Tyrese Haliburton (groin) is also questionable, so if both point guards remain sidelined, Andrew Nembhard, Aaron Nesmith and Bennedict Mathurin would be candidates for increased roles once again.

    Pacers' Tyrese Haliburton: Questionable for Wednesday's game
    17m ago

    Haliburton (groin) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.

    Haliburton missed both games of Indiana's recent back-to-back set due to a groin injury, but he'll have a chance to return Wednesday. The Pacers would have no reason to rush the point guard back if he wasn't 100 percent, so if he's available, Haliburton will be a must-start player in nearly every fantasy format. He's posting 19.1 points, 10.9 assists, 4.7 rebounds and 1.8 steals in 33.2 minutes per game.

    17m ago

    Williams (knee) is out for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.
