    • Jarvis Landry MIA WR
      Dolphins' Jarvis Landry: New contract about more than just money
      1h ago

      Landry and the Dolphins will have to talk about more than just money before they come together on a new contract, Miami Herald reports.

      Landry can become a free agent in March and wants to be paid among the elite receivers in the league. His numbers say that he does deserve to be among the best paid but the Dolphins have concerns other than just money. Landry doesn't always run precise or even correct routes. His emotions have gotten the best of him on more than just a few occasions. Landry also doesn't always get along with his coaches and at times will even ignore what they say. The problem for Miami is all of this may be true, but if they won't pay him, someone will. If Miami and Landry can't come to a deal, he will likely be one of the more coveted players when free agency begins this March.

      Hilton signed a one-year contract extension with the Steelers on Tuesday, the Steelers' official site reports.

      Hilton played in all 16 regular season games for the Steelers this season, logging four starts. He recorded 64 tackles (48 solo), six passes defensed, four sacks, two interceptions and one forced fumble on the year. Hilton sits behind Joe Haden and Artie Burns on the depth chart, but only 23, the young cornerback could potentially fly up the ranks in his second season with Pittsburgh.

      Mariners' Matt Hague: Latches on with Mariners
      22m ago

      Hague signed a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Tuesday which includes an invitation to spring training.

      After spending 2016 in Japan, Hague returned stateside in 2017 and spent the entire season with Triple-A Rochester. While he hit a respectable .297/.373/.416 for the Red Wings, it wasn't enough to earn him a promotion to the majors. Hague will now look to work his way back to the majors with the Mariners, though he'll more likely spend the year as organizational depth.

      Curt Casali: Granted release from Angels
      35m ago

      Casali has been released by the Angels and is now a free agent, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

      Casali originally signed a minor-league deal with the Angels earlier in the winter, but the 29-year-old was granted his release after the team signed Rene Rivera, all but ending his chances of making the Opening Day roster. He'll now look to catch on elsewhere, though given his paltry .199/.285/.385 slash-line with the Rays over the past four seasons, it will likely be another minor-league deal.

      Germen signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

      Germen is looking to make his way back to the majors after spending the 2017 season in Japan, where he posted a 2.68 ERA and 51 strikeouts in 47 innings of relief for the Orix Buffaloes. He last appeared in the majors in 2016, though he struggled to a 5.31 ERA and 1.62 WHIP across 40.2 innings with the Rockies that season.

    • Michael Chavis BOS 3B
      Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Receives spring invite
      2h ago

      Chavis has been invited to the Red Sox's major-league camp this spring, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports.

      The Red Sox will give one of their top prospects a look during spring, though Chavis is still expected to open the season in the minors. He impressed in stops at High-A Salem and Double-A Portland last season, hitting a combined .282/.347/.563 with 31 homers in 126 games. Still, he hasn't played above Double-A at this point, and with Rafael Devers and Mitch Moreland manning the corners for Boston in 2018, the 22-year-old will likely spend most of his season with Triple-A Pawtucket.

    • Danny Duffy KC SP
      Royals' Danny Duffy: Pleads guilty to DUI charge
      2h ago

      Duffy (elbow) pleaded guilty to driving under the influence in Overland Park, Kan. last week and has been placed on one year's probation, KCTV News reports.

      Duffy was charged with DUI in late August after police stopped him on his way back from an elbow exam. The lefty did not face any immediate disciplinary action, and there has been no indication that he will from the Royals or Major League Baseball. There is no unified, league-wide disciplinary code for these matters. A spokesman for the team said Tuesday that the plea is a matter between Duffy, his representatives and the city. Duffy is expected to be ready for spring training after undergoing surgery to remove loose bodies from his elbow in early October.

    • Rusney Castillo BOS RF
      Red Sox's Rusney Castillo: Gets spring invite from Red Sox
      3h ago

      Castillo has been invited to the Red Sox's major-league camp this spring, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports.

      Castillo will get a look during spring after spending the entire 2017 campaign with Triple-A Pawtucket. He hit a respectable .314/.350/.507 with 15 homers and 14 stolen bases in 87 games for the PawSox, but still didn't receive a September callup because he would have pushed Boston over the luxury tax threshold last season. Castillo's strong 2017 season offers some hope moving forward, though even if he breaks camp with the Red Sox in 2018, he won't be more than the team's right-handed reserve outfielder.

      Rockets' Zhou Qi: Questionable for Thursday
      1h ago

      Qi (elbow) has been upgraded to questionable for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

      Qi has missed the last two games with an elbow injury, but had been upgraded to questionable ahead of Thursday's contest and could make a return to the lineup. That said, Qi hasn't played a significant role for the Rockets and even if cleared, he's not going to be a fantasy asset.

    • James Ennis III MEM SF
      Grizzlies' James Ennis: Questionable for Wednesday
      1h ago

      Ennis is dealing with a right calf injury and is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

      This is the first we've heard of the calf injury for Ennis, though it seems likely he picked it up during Monday's tilt with the Lakers. Ennis has seen an expanded role recently, averaging 27.2 minutes per game over his last five contests. That's largely due to Chandler Parsons' (knee) absence and with Parsons set to be sidelined again, Ennis should continue to see a sizable workload if he were to be cleared. Look for Ennis to test out the calf during Wednesday's morning shootaround before a final decision is made on his availability.

      Parsons (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

      Parsons continues to nurse a sore right knee, and Wednesday will mark his eighth consecutive absence. Expect the likes of Jarell Martin and Dillon Brooks to continue to pick up increased minutes, as could James Ennis (calf), if he's ultimately cleared to play.

      Anderson Varejao: Signs with Brazilian squad
      1h ago

      Varejao has agreed to terms with Flamengo of Novo Basquete Brasil (NBB), Sportando.com reports.

      Varejao most recently played during the 2016-17 campaign with the Warriors, where he appeared in 14 tilts and averaged 1.3 points and 1.9 rebounds across 6.6 minutes per game. The 35-year-old has opted to sign a profession deal in Brazil, where he was born. It seems highly unlikely at this point that he makes an NBA return.

    • Abdel Nader BOS SF
      Celtics' Abdel Nader: Ruled out Tuesday
      2h ago

      Nader (illness) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans, Celtics play-by-play announcer Sean Grande reports.

      Nader is dealing with the flu and despite receiving treatment throughout the day, he's still not feeling well enough to take the court. His next shot to play will be Thursday against the 76ers and considering it's just an illness, there's a decent chance he's able to return for that contest. That said, Nader is currently outside the Celtics' regular rotation, so his absence shouldn't have much of an impact.

      Celtics' Al Horford: Good to go Tuesday vs. Pelicans

      Horford (calf) is good to go for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans, Brian Robb of the Boston Sports Journal reports.

      Hoford sat out practice over the weekend, but rejoined the team for Monday's session and was never expected to miss any time. He'll take on his typical role Tuesday and he doesn't appear to be on any sort of restrictions, so he can be activated in both season-long leagues and DFS contests Tuesday.

      Boychuk (lower body) has yet to begin skating, Cory Wright of the Islanders official site reports.

      The game Tuesday versus New Jersey will be the ninth straight that Boychuk has missed due to the injury. Coach Doug Weight stated Tuesday that "Johnny B is feeling pretty good" but not good enough to get back on the ice yet. Boychuk will probably need to get a practice or two under his belt once he starts to skate so it would seem the earliest he could return would be Monday in Arizona.

      Rangers' Ryan McDonagh: Back in action Tuesday

      McDonagh (undisclosed) will return to the lineup Tuesday night versus the Flyers, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

      The captain is scoreless on 58 shots this campaign, though his saving grace in the fantasy realm has been an abundance of helpers. McDonagh has 19 of those, including four apples on the power play. He'll be safe to use in fantasy having only missed Sunday's game against the Penguins with the ailment.

      Avalanche's Tyson Jost: Dealing with undisclosed ailment

      Jost is dealing with an (unspecified) injury that could cost him some time, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

      The Avalanche do not play until Thursday, which should afford the team ample time to reevaluate the prized rookie. Of course, Sven Andrighetto (leg) is also injured, necessitating a call-up for Dominic Toninato. Jost has shown flashes of his potential on the way to three goals and five helpers over 27 games. He's day-to-day by default until more is known about his ailment.

    • Andrew Ladd NYI LW
      Islanders' Andrew Ladd: Ruled out through week's end

      Coach Doug Weight ruled out Ladd (upper body) through the end of the week at a minimum, Cory Wright of the Islanders' official site reports.

      Ladd's last game action came Jan. 5 against the Penguins, making him eligible to return when healthy. It appears that won't occur until Monday against the Coyotes at the earliest, though no return date has been specifically delivered. More information on his status should arise as his return date approaches. The team will be required to announce his activation from injured reserve prior.

      The University of Minnesota-Duluth product has appeared in eight games with the parent club, with a single assist representing the rookie's point total over that span. He'll provide the Avalanche with depth in the wake of a leg injury to Sven Andrighetto.

    • Casey Cizikas NYI C
      Islanders' Casey Cizikas: Out through end of week at minimum
      2h ago

      Cizikas (upper body) will be sidelined through the end of the week at a minimum, Cory Wright of the Islanders' official site reports.

      Cizikas departed Saturday's game against the Rangers early because of the upper-body ailment, and it appears the issue will cost him at least a week of game action. With him ruled out through the end of the week along with a number of other bodies up front, the Islanders will go through the next three games with some irregular names in the lineup. Another update on Cizikas' status should surface at some point before next Monday's matchup versus the Coyotes, though whether or not he travels with the Isles when they begin their three-game road trip Saturday against the Blackhawks could also be a telling sign.
