Brewers' Travis Shaw: Headed for more time at second14h ago
Shaw figures to draw starts at second base following Milwaukee's signing of Mike Moustakas, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.
Shaw appeared in line to begin the season as the club's everyday third baseman, but after the Brewers came to terms with Moustakas, that plan figures to change. Shaw manned the keystone in 39 games during the second half of the 2018 campaign, allowing for Moustakas to start at the hot corner. Fantasy owners should expect more of the same in 2019. Keeping in mind that manager Craig Counsell likes to have options at second base, Shaw could share playing time with Cory Spangenberg, Hernan Perez and Tyler Saladino, though, given Shaw's impressive power and his left-handed bat, he should see the lion's share of at-bats. While the 2011 ninth-round pick out of Kent State saw his batting average plummet to .241 through 152 games a year ago, he belted 32 homers and drove in 86 runs despite learning a new position.
Mike Moustakas MIL 3B
Brewers' Mike Moustakas: Returns to Milwaukee15h ago
Moustakas agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract with the Brewers on Sunday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
The deal will become official following a physical exam. Moustakas elected free agency after turning down his 2019 option with Milwaukee, but he'll return with the Brewers and should be their premier option at third base, especially against right-handed pitching. This means Travis Shaw will once again see time at second base as he did in the second half of the 2018 campaign. The keystone will become a bit more crowded with Moustakas back in the picture, as Cory Spangenberg, Hernan Perez and Tyler Saladino could all compete for backup work at second behind Shaw.
Jerad Eickhoff PHI SP
Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Completes first bullpen session15h ago
Eickhoff (wrist) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Sunday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
This is a positive sign for the right-hander after news emerged last week that he was still hindered by offseason surgery to address carpal tunnel syndrome. Eickhoff's next step is participating in live batting practice sessions, though it's unclear when that step will be taken. For now, the team is content with Eickhoff emerging from Sunday's session fully healthy, with a firmer timetable for return likely coming forth once he progresses further in his rehab program.
Adeiny Hechavarria NYY SS
Mets' Adeiny Hechavarria: Agrees to NRI pact with Mets15h ago
Hechavarria signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Sunday that includes an invitation to spring training, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The 29-year-old split the 2018 season between the Rays, Pirates and Yankees, producing a .247/.279/.345 slash line with six home runs and 31 RBI. However, Hechavarria's calling card is his defense. With no other natural shortstop on the Mets' active roster beside Amed Rosario, Hechavarria has a decent shot at cracking the Opening Day roster if he can piece together a strong spring showing.
Aaron Judge NYY RF
Yankees' Aaron Judge: May bat leadoff against lefties18h ago
Manager Aaron Boone said he would consider batting Judge leadoff against left-handed pitchers from time to time, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
The young slugger was a staple of the second spot in the Yankees' batting order last season, but it seems like the Yankees are considering switching things up occasionally. Boone said Aaron Hicks is the likely candidate to be New York's regular leadoff hitter, but he may put Judge in the pole position in order to get him more at-bats against the opposite-handed pitcher. Naturally, this is just speculation at this point of the season, but getting more plate appearances against southpaws wouldn't hurt Judge after he posted a .967 OPS against them last season.
Cameron Maybin SEA LF
Giants' Cameron Maybin: Inks NRI deal with San Francisco18h ago
Maybin agreed to a minor-league contract with the Giants on Sunday that includes an invitation to spring training, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
The veteran outfielder split 2018 between the Marlins and Mariners, posting a .249/.326/.336 slash line with four home runs and 10 stolen bases. He isn't what he used to be at the plate, but Maybin can still run well if his 33 steals in 2017 are any indication. He figures to be a legitimate contender for one of the Giants' outfield spots given the dearth of experienced options in camp.
Jomal Wiltz NE CB
Dolphins' Jomal Wiltz: Signs with Miami1d ago
Wiltz signed a contract with the Dolphins on Saturday.
Wiltz went undrafted out of Iowa State in 2016 and has spent the bulk of the last two seasons on the Patriots' practice squad. The 24-year-old is still looking to make his NFL debut.
Tank Carradine OAK DE
Dolphins' Tank Carradine: Joins Dolphins1d ago
Carradine signed a contract with the Dolphins on Friday.
Carradine had a one-game stint with Oakland last season and played in eight games with San Francisco in 2017. The veteran defensive end will look to earn a roster spot under new head coach Brian Flores.
Mark Walton CIN RB
Bengals' Mark Walton: Arrested Friday2d ago
Walton is potentially facing misdemeanor battery charges after being arrested Friday in Miami, David Orvalle of The Miami Herald reports.
Walton apparently got into a scuffle outside his condo with the police indicating the incident began due to the fact his vehicle was blocking the building's parking garage. The 21-year-old is currently free on bond, while the league office is likely to do its own investigation to see if the incident warrants any further action.
Demaryius Thomas HOU WR
Demaryius Thomas: Suffers minor injuries in crash2d ago
Thomas (Achilles) sustained minor injuries in a single-vehicle crash early Saturday morning, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Thomas was identified as the driver in the vehicle rollover, while one of the other two individuals in the car suffered possible serious injuries, though they don't appear life-threatening. The veteran wide receiver is currently a free agent after being released by the Texans on Thursday, and his status for the start of the 2019 season is in limbo after he ruptured his Achilles in December.
Damontae Kazee ATL SS
Falcons' Damontae Kazee: May slide into nickel slot2d ago
Kazee is the most likely candidate to replace Brian Poole at nickelback in 2019 now that the Falcons declined to pick up Poole's restricted free-agent tender Friday, Kelsey Conway of the team's official site reports.
Head coach Dan Quinn said earlier this offseason that Kazee is not only a candidate to garner playing time at free safety, but he's also a potential option at nickelback. Entering his third pro campaign out of San Diego State, Kazee will strive to improve as a tackler, but his ball-hawking abilities are undeniable. After he accounted for an NFL-high seven interceptions this past season, Atlanta wants to find a way to get him in the lineup one way or another. With Keanu Neal (knee) and Ricardo Allen (Achilles) both likely to be recuperated in time for training camp it's going to be challenging to snag a starting spot at safety, but his shift to nickelback would provide the defensive backfield with another key difference-maker.
Jason Croom BUF TE
Bills' Jason Croom: Status strengthened2d ago
The Bills released Charles Clay on Friday, leaving Croom as the team's only tight end currently under contract.
Logan Thomas is a restricted free agent and could be brought back, while the Bills have a ton of cap room this offseason and a slew of draft picks to invest in tight end. While there will certainly be competition coming in, Croom -- who caught 22 balls on 35 targets for 259 yards and one touchdown in 2018 (15 games) -- is clearly going to get a chance to piggyback off a somewhat successful first pro season. While Croom has yet to wow, the upside is there as a former wide receiver still learning the ins and outs of the position.
Kemba Walker CHA PG
Hornets' Kemba Walker: Does little in loss7h ago
Walker totaled four points (2-8 FG, 0-5 3Pt), eight assists, one rebound and one steal over 20 minutes in Team Giannis' loss to Team LeBron in the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.
Playing in front of his home crowd, Walker was invisible, failing to hit any of his threes and coming away with no highlight plays. Although he scored only four points in this one, Walker heads into the All-Star break averaging a career high in points this season at 24.9 per game.
Kawhi Leonard TOR SF
Raptors' Kawhi Leonard: Drops 19 in win8h ago
Leonard finished with 19 points (7-14 FG, 5-11 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and a block across 19 minutes in Team LeBron's win over Team Giannis on Sunday.
Leonard was efficient and aggressive, hitting five threes while still shooting nearly 50.0 percent from the floor. He's had a strong first half in his first season in Toronto (27.0 points per game, 7.7 rebounds per game), and he'll look to build on that following the All-Star break
Joel Embiid PHI C
76ers' Joel Embiid: Double-double in loss8h ago
Embiid produced 12 points (4-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block over 23 minutes in Team Giannis' loss to Team LeBron in the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.
Embiid crashed the glass, leading all rebounders in the All-Star Game. He's the second-leading rebounder in the NBA with 13.5 this season. After the All-Star break, Embiid will try to push the 76ers higher up the standings - they currently sit at the five-seed with a 37-21 record which is only one game back of the the three-seed Pacers.
Damian Lillard POR PG
Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard: Hot from deep in win8h ago
Lillard totaled 18 points (6-17 FG, 6-17 3Pt), six rebounds, five assists and two steals across 25 minutes in Team LeBron's win over Team Giannis in the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.
Lillard solely jacked up threes in the win, tying a game-high total with six (Klay Thompson, Paul George, Khris Middleton). Coming out of the All-Star break, Lillard will do his best to keep Portland climbing in the West as the Trail Blazers currently sit at the four-seed with a 34-23 record.
Russell Westbrook OKC PG
Thunder's Russell Westbrook: Scores 17 in loss8h ago
Westbrook totaled 17 points (8-20 FG, 1-8 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists and a steal over 19 minutes in Team Giannis' loss to Team LeBron in the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.
Westbrook had a poor night shooting the ball, and he wasn't able to come up with solid production rebounding or facilitating. He played only 19 minutes off the bench, but despite his 17 points, it was not a good performance for Westbrook. He'll try to record his 12th consecutive triple-double when the Thunder return from the All-Star break.
Dwyane Wade MIA SG
Heat's Dwyane Wade: Plays in final All-Star Game8h ago
Wade totaled seven points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists and two rebounds across 10 minutes in Team LeBron's win over Team Giannis in the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.
Wade played in his 13th and final All-Star game, finishing with an average line in the win. Wade has provided consistent production off the bench for the Heat this season, and he has turned it on as of late. He'll try to stay hot when the Heat return to action on Feb. 21.
Tomas Tatar MON LW
Canadiens' Tomas Tatar: Aggressive forecheck pays off2m ago
Tatar assisted on two goals in Sunday's 6-3 loss to Florida.
Tatar used an aggressive forecheck to create a pair of giveaways that led to two goals by Max Domi. The Czech native has been active on the scoresheet, having registered four goals and six assists over the last 11 games. The two assists give himn 25 for the season, two shy of his previous career mark set in 2014-15 when he was with the Red Wings.
Max Domi MON C
Canadiens' Max Domi: Sets new career high10m ago
Domi scored two goals on four shots in Sunday's 6-3 loss to Florida.
After Domi's two-game disappearing act -- he had zero shots in losses to Nashville and Tampa Bay -- the 23-year-old forward rebounded with his third multi-goal effort of the season. The two markers give him 19 for the season bettering Domi's previous career high of 18 set during his rookie 2015-16 season in Arizona. He was ably enabled by linemate Tomas Tatar, who created turnovers that led to both goals.
James Reimer FLA G
Panthers' James Reimer: Wins another start5h ago
Reimer stopped 28 of 31 shots in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Canadiens.
Florida helped its goaltender by jumping out to 2-0 and 3-1 leads in the opening period but afforded the Habs enough opportunities whereby they were able to tie the game early in the second period. Aleksandar Barkov then took over Sunday's contest, winding up with a hat trick on a game-high seven shots. It's now back-to-back wins for Reimer, improving his record to 12-10-5 with a 3.05 GAA and .901 save percentage.
Carey Price MON G
Canadiens' Carey Price: Relief appearance turns into loss5h ago
Price allowed two goals Sunday, making 24 saves in relief of Antti Niemi as part of a 6-3 loss to the Panthers.
Antti Niemi got the start but did not last long, as the Habs' backup was pulled after allowing three goals on nine shots in the opening 13:57. Meanwhile, Price, after Sunday's loss, has dropped four straight after posting a seven-game winning streak. The Canadiens' netminder now has a record to 23-16-5 with a 2.58 GAA and .916 save percentage.
Antti Niemi MON G
Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Pulled versus Panthers5h ago
Niemi was replaced by Carey Price after allowing three goals on nine shots in Sunday's 6-3 loss to Florida.
Because Montreal tied the game at three in the second period, Niemi's record will not be affected by Sunday's loss and will remain at 8-5-2. On Sunday, the Finn played just 13:57 before he was replaced by Carey Price, who made 24 saves and allowed a pair of goals in the road defeat.
Cory Schneider NJ G
Devils' Cory Schneider: Wins yet again5h ago
Schneider made 34 saves Sunday in a 4-1 win over Buffalo.
Schneider, after going over a year without a win, has won two games in a row. Since returning from a serious abdominal injury, the 32-year-old American has a .925 save percentage, putting him in the discussion for spot-start duty in most fantasy formats, though New Jersey's collective struggles limit the playability of its goaltenders. With the win, Schneider's record improves to 2-7-2 with a 3.69 GAA and .883 save percentage.
