Jalen Tolliver TEN WR
Chiefs' Jalen Tolliver: Joins Chiefs3h ago
Tolliver signed a contract with Kansas City on Tuesday.
Tolliver entered training camp with the Titans but was waived by the team earlier in August. The 23-year-old played in three games with the Cardinals in 2018, catching three of six targets for 37 yards.
James Williams 2005 RB
Colts' James Williams: Latches on with Colts3h ago
Williams signed a contract with Indianapolis on Tuesday, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.
Williams signed with the Chiefs after going undrafted out of Washington State in April, only to be released by the team in mid-June. The young running back will now have a chance to prove himself with the Colts in the second half of the preseason.
Demarcus Lawrence DAL DE
Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Returns to practice3h ago
Lawrence (shoulder) was removed from the PUP list Tuesday and was participated in individual drills at practice, The Dallas Morning News reports.
Lawrence started off training camp on the PUP list since he underwent surgery in April to address a torn labrum in his left shoulder. The 27-year-old may not see enough practice time to be clear to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans, but he'll have a couple weeks to get ready for the start of the regular season.
Tyrone Crawford DAL DT
Cowboys' Tyrone Crawford: Removed from PUP list3h ago
Crawford (hip) was removed from the PUP list Tuesday and participated in individual drills at practice, The Dallas Morning News reports.
Crawford landed on the PUP list at the start of training camp with the hip issue but his return to practice -- even in a limited capacity -- is good news for his potential Week 1 availability. The 29-year-old may not see enough practice time to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans, but he's progressing toward a full return to the field.
Jakeem Grant MIA WR
Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Reaches four-year extension4h ago
Grant (hamstring) signed a four-year extension with the Dolphins on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Grant is in the final year of his four-year rookie contract, but he'll now be able to stay with Miami through the 2023 campaign. The 26-year-old caught 21 of 34 targets for 268 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games before suffering an Achilles injury in November. He also made an impact in the return game, with one kick and one punt return touchdown. Grant is currently dealing with a hamstring injury, but he;s returned to practice and could make his preseason debut Thursday versus the Jaguars.
Darian Thompson DAL DB
Cowboys' Darian Thompson: Misses practice Tuesday7h ago
Thompson was absent from Tuesday's practice while nursing an ankle injury, The Dallas Morning News reports.
It's unclear how Thompson picked up the injury, but it was serious enough to force him out of practice. The 25-year-old could be in line for an increased role within the defense, considering he only appeared in 10 games with the team last season. As long as Thompson is sidelined, Donovan Wilson and Tyvis Powell could see an increase in reps.
Hanser Alberto BAL 2B
Orioles' Hanser Alberto: Hits three-run homer8m ago
Alberto went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in a 4-1 victory against the Royals on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old has just a .117 ISO, but he came up with a key homer late in Tuesday's matchup, breaking a 1-1 tie. While his numbers don't yet show it, he's displayed more power lately, hitting two home runs in the last seven games, and nine extra-base hit in the past 11 contests. He is batting .318 with eight home runs, 40 RBI, 41 runs and four steals in 393 at-bats this season.
Brad Keller KC SP
Royals' Brad Keller: Settles for no-decision21m ago
Keller threw six shutout innings while allowing three hits and two walks along with four strikeouts in a no-decision against the Orioles on Tuesday.
The 24-year-old pitched very well again, but he settled for another very disappointing decision. In his last outing, Keller yielded no runs and zero hits through six innings, but he struggled during the seventh and eventually took a loss. This time around, the Royals turned to the bullpen after six, but Keller's good work still didn't stand up. Despite a respectable 3.94 ERA in his last five starts, he hasn't won an outing since July 24. Overall, Keller is 7-13 with a 3.95 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 121 strikeouts in 164 innings this season. He will pitch next against the Athletics at home on Monday.
Dylan Bundy BAL SP
Orioles' Dylan Bundy: Pitches very well in no-decision27m ago
Bundy allowed one run on five hits with two walks and seven strikeouts across seven innings during a no-decision against the Royals on Tuesday.
The right-hander easily turned in his best start in more than a month, but he settled for a no-decision because of no offense early in the game. Still, owners should be pleased Bundy posted his first outing of the year with one run allowed and at least seven strikeouts. Overall, he is 5-13 with a 5.03 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 129 strikeouts in 127 innings this season. Bundy will pitch again Sunday at home against the Rays.
Starling Marte PIT CF
Pirates' Starling Marte: Hits key homer32m ago
Marte went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in a 4-1 victory against the Nationals on Tuesday.
With the game tied in the eighth and one out, Marte delivered the knockout blow with a three-run homer. The home run was his second in three games, and during that span, Marte has driven in four of the Pirates five runs scored. Clearly, the offense has gone dry in Pittsburgh, but Marte is still hitting well. He's batting .291 with 22 home runs, 73 RBI, 85 runs and 22 steals in 475 at-bats this season.
Felipe Vazquez PIT RP
Pirates' Felipe Vazquez: Picks up win41m ago
Vazquez (3-1) allowed one hit with one strikeout over 1.1 innings while recording a victory against the Nationals on Tuesday.
The Pirates called upon Vazquez with two outs and a runner aboard in the eighth to keep the deficit just one. After successfully doing that, the Pirates finally broke through with a few runs, giving Vazquez a shot at the win. He allowed a hit to lead off the ninth, but Vazquez erased that baserunner with a double play. He has 22 saves in 24 opportunities with a 1.65 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 74 strikeouts in 49 innings this season.
Stephen Strasburg WAS SP
Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Sparkles in no-decision45m ago
Strasburg threw seven shutout innings while allowing four hits with one walk and six strikeouts during a no-decision against the Pirates on Tuesday.
The right-hander completed seven frames with 94 pitches, but Nationals manager Dave Martinez probably wishes he would have let Strasburg pitch longer. After Strasburg yielded only five baserunners, the Nationals bullpen allowed four of the first five hitters in the eighth to reach and score, coughing up the lead. With a 15-5 record, Strasburg doesn't have many no-decisions this season, but he does have a pair of those in his last three outings, and in both no-decisions, Strasburg pitched seven innings. To go with 15 wins, he has a 3.65 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 191 strikeouts in 165 innings this season. Strasburg will pitch next at the Cubs on Sunday.
Ja Morant MEM PG
Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Back to 100 percent11h ago
Morant (knee) said he's back to 100 percent after undergoing minor knee surgery in June, Peter Edmiston of Sports 56 WHBQ in Memphis reports.
Morant underwent a procedure on June 3 to clean up his knee, and while it entailed only a three-to-four-week recovery period, the Grizzlies opted to hold the No. 2 overall pick out of summer league as a precaution. With just over a month until the start of the regular season, Morant is back at full strength and won't face any limitations when camp opens next month. The Murray State product projects to be among the most sought-after rookies in fantasy drafts.
Marcus Smart BOS PG
Celtics' Marcus Smart: Cleared to return to Team USA1d ago
Smart (calf) has been fully cleared to return to on-court work with Team USA, Marc Stein of the New York Times reports.
Smart had been sidelined for the better part of the last two weeks with a calf injury, but he'ls been cleared to return to team activities as of Monday and appears to be on track to be available for the FIBA World Cup at the end of the month.
Dwight Howard MEM C
Grizzlies' Dwight Howard: Drawing interest from Lakers1d ago
The Lakers are expected to request permission from the Grizzlies to meet with Howard regarding a potential union, league sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
After Memphis acquired his rights from Washington in July, Howard is on the Grizzlies' books for the 2019-20 campaign, but the team is expected to release him before the upcoming season. Since Memphis recognizes that Howard isn't part of their future plans, the organization may just be doing him a favor by allowing him to meet with Los Angeles, which has clear need for added depth at center after DeMarcus Cousins (knee) suffered a season-ending ACL tear in a workout last week. Howard apparently has interest in rejoining the Lakers, with whom he spent a tumultuous 2012-13 campaign. Now 33 years old and returning from back surgery, Howard likely wouldn't be asked to play major minutes behind JaVale McGee, who would presumably start at center if the Lakers commit to using Anthony Davis as a power forward.
Bol Bol DEN C
Nuggets' Bol Bol: Back to full strength2d ago
Bol (foot) said he's fully recovered from the foot injury that sidelined him for much of his freshman season at Oregon, Jim Slater of the Associated Press reports. "Everything is perfect. Everything has fully healed," Bol said. "I've been working out in the morning and coming back at night."
While concerns about the foot -- as well as Bol's work ethic -- caused the 19-year-old to tumble all the way to the middle of the second round on draft night, Bol is one of the more tantalizing rookies in the 2019 class. A rare combination of size and fluidity, Bol averaged 21.0 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.7 blocks in nine collegiate contests, and he hit 52 percent of his three-point attempts. Bol may struggle to find consistent opportunity on a deep Nuggets roster, but he's nonetheless a name to keep an eye on in dynasty formats. "With his length and ability to protect the rim and stretch the floor, it's a pretty rare combination," Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly said of Bol. "We think his skillset, his pedigree, who he is as a guy, will fit in well in the locker room."
De'Aaron Fox SAC PG
Kings' De'Aaron Fox: Withdraws from Team USA4d ago
Fox withdrew from Team USA on Saturday, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
Fox was promoted to the select team almost two weeks ago after several players dropped out of consideration and had a strong chance of making the final roster as a result. However, Fox has decided he rather focus on his upcoming season in Sacramento after a breakout campaign in 2018-19.
Marcus Smart BOS PG
Celtics' Marcus Smart: Confident in return for World Cup4d ago
Smart (calf) stated on Friday night's NBA TV broadcast that he's "100 percent confident" that he'll be ready to play by the start of the World Cup, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
Smart has been slowed during camp due to a tight calf, though the guard doesn't anticipate missing any World Cup action. Even so, the team will likely exercise caution with Smart to ensure he doesn't make the injury any worse by returning before he's ready.
Mitchell Marner TOR RW
Maple Leafs' Mitch Marner: Could begin training in Switzerland11h ago
Marner's camp has had discussions with the ZSC Lions of the NLA about a potential contract for the 2019-20 campaign, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
This is almost certainly just a negotiating tactic, as there's next to no chance that Marner actually ends up signing a contract with the Lions, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him head to Switzerland to train with the team in early September if he still hasn't reached a deal with the Maple Leafs prior to training camp. Either way, it's certainly worth noting that at this point it appears that Marner's holdout could end up extending into the regular season.
T.J. Oshie WAS RW
Capitals' T.J. Oshie: Ready for 2019-20 campaign19h ago
Oshie (collarbone) is healthy ahead of the start of the 2019-20 campaign, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
Oshie missed the end of last season after suffering a broken clavicle during the playoffs. Injuries limited the winger to just 69 regular-season contests, but he still managed to rack up 25 goals and 29 helpers for a sixth 50-plus point year. The 31-year-old figures to take on a top-six role once again and should continue to feature on the top power-play unit, giving him top-end fantasy value.
Michael Dal Colle NYI LW
Islanders' Michael Dal Colle: Inks two-year deal1d ago
Dal Colle signed a two-year contract with the Islanders on Monday.
Dal Colle notched three goals and seven points in 28 games last season as a rookie. The 23-year-old was drafted fifth overall in 2014 and certainly hasn't lived up to that status yet with just 32 career NHL games played. Expect Dal Colle to skate in a bottom-six role this season when he's not a healthy scratch.
Valeri Nichushkin COL LW
Avalanche's Valeri Nichushkin: Headed for Mile High City2d ago
Nichushkin agreed to terms on a one-year, $850,000 contract with Colorado on Monday.
Nichushkin's return to the NHL was a bust last season, as he appeared in just 57 games and failed to find the back of the net. The winger will be hoping to secure more play time with the Avs, though he figures to find himself in a bottom-six role. A change of scenery could benefit the Russian and allow him to get back to being a 30-plus-point producer.
Alexander Petrovic BOS D
Bruins' Alex Petrovic: Lands tryout agreement2d ago
Petrovic secured a professional tryout agreement with the Bruins on Sunday, TSN reports.
Petrovic saw action in 35 games last season for the Panthers and Oilers, in which he tallied two assists, 26 PIM and 47 shots while averaging 16:32 of ice time. The Boston blue line is already stacked, but the team still hasn't agreed to terms on new deals for restricted free agents Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo, so bringing Petrovic in on a PTO gives Boston an extra body for camp and potential cover in the event of a protracted holdout.
Evgeny Svechnikov DET RW
Red Wings' Evgeny Svechnikov: Looking forward to Opening Night6d ago
Svechnikov (knee) continues to work on his recovery but answered "Oh yeah, for sure. Absolutely. I'm ready," when asked if he would be healthy for Opening Night against Nashville on Oct. 5, Max Bultman of The Athletic reports.
Svechnikov lost the entire 2018-19 campaign due to his knee injury. Any lingering issues during training camp could hurt the winger's chances of avoiding a stint in the minors, especially following the acquisition of Adam Erne. If he can earn his spot, Svechnikov figures to start in a bottom-six role, but could even challenge for a larger role throughout the year.
