Trevor Story COL SS
Rockies' Trevor Story: MRI scheduled for Thursday6m ago
Story will undergo an MRI on Thursday after exiting Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Diamondbacks with what Colorado is classifying as a jammed right thumb, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Shortly after departing in the sixth inning, Story was sent in for X-rays on the thumb, which returned negative. Though Story has been cleared of any structural damage to the thumb, the MRI will clarify whether he's dealing with an injury serious enough to require a trip to the injured list. Pat Valaika replaced Story on Wednesday, and the Rockies could summon Brendan Rodgers or Garrett Hampson from Triple-A Albuquerque for additional help at shortstop in the event Story needs to be shut down.
Asdrubal Cabrera TEX 3B
Rangers' Asdrubal Cabrera: Up to 11 homers17m ago
Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a home run, double, two RBI and an additional run Wednesday in the Rangers' 10-4 loss to the Indians.
The home run was Cabrera's 11th of the season, all of which have come at Globe Life Park in Arlington. He'll be in the lineup as the cleanup hitter for Thursday's series finale and should make for a quality fantasy option through the weekend with three more home games on tap against a shaky White Sox pitching staff.
Jordan Luplow CLE RF
Indians' Jordan Luplow: Seeing steady action vs. lefties26m ago
Luplow will start in right field and bat cleanup Thursday against the Rangers.
Luplow looks to be stuck in the short end of a platoon with Tyler Naquin, but he'll crack the lineup for a second straight game with the Indians facing another left-handed starting pitcher (Mike Minor). The 25-year-old made the most of his start in Wednesday's 10-4 win, going 2-for-4 with a double, two runs and three RBI.
Roberto Perez CLE C
Indians' Roberto Perez: Getting breather33m ago
Perez is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers.
Perez will hang out in the dugout for the matinee affair after starting each of the past four days and recording four hits (including two solo home runs) in 17 at-bats. Backup catcher Kevin Plawecki will replace Perez behind the dish.
Tyler Naquin CLE RF
Indians' Tyler Naquin: Sitting against lefty again36m ago
Naquin is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers.
Naquin will sit for the second consecutive day with the Rangers bringing another left-handed starting pitcher (Mike Minor) to the hill. Platoon mate Jordan Luplow will draw the starting nod in right field and bat cleanup.
Nomar Mazara TEX RF
Rangers' Nomar Mazara: Sitting out series finale40m ago
Mazara is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Indians, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Though Mazara was included in the lineup the past two days after missing the prior two games with right hamstring tightness, he was limited to designated-hitter duties in both of those contests. While it hasn't been reported that he suffered a setback with the hamstring after playing back-to-back days, Mazara is presumably still not quite 100 percent healthy. With that in mind, manager Chris Woodward will give Mazara some maintenance with the Rangers and Indians playing a day game after a night game. Mazara should be available to pinch hit if needed and will likely re-enter the lineup as a DH or outfielder Friday versus the White Sox.
Devontae Booker DEN RB
Broncos' Devontae Booker: Still getting first-team looks1h ago
Booker and Royce Freeman got most of the work with the starting offense while Phillip Lindsay focused on rehabbing a wrist injury this spring, ESPN.com's Jeff Legwold reports.
Lacking Freeman's size and power or Lindsay's speed and elusiveness, Booker understandably seems to be the forgotten man in Denver's backfield, though his reliable hands could be enough to earn some work on passing downs. The Broncos ideally would like to see Lindsay seize those snaps, but his five drops on 47 targets contributed to a lackluster mark of just 5.1 YPT last season. To be fair, Booker wasn't much better at 5.4, dropping his career mark to 6.1 YPT. If nothing else, he has a good chance to stick on the 53-man roster, as competition for the No. 3 running back spot is limited to Khalfani Muhammad and undrafted rookie Devontae Jackson.
DeAndre Washington OAK RB
Raiders' DeAndre Washington: May be odd man out1h ago
Washington is part of a position group that includes Josh Jacobs, Jalen Richard, Doug Martin and Chris Warren, Ed Graney of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Jacobs and Richard are locked in for two spots, while Martin seems to have good odds after finishing last season with a pair of 100-yard rushing performances. The wild card is Warren, who made some noise last summer as an undrafted rookie before a preseason knee injury allowed the Raiders to stash him on injured reserve. Heading into the final year of his rookie contract, Washington appears limited to competing for a role as Richard's backup on passing downs. There are better darts to throw in the closing stages of fantasy drafts.
Colt McCoy WAS QB
Redskins' Colt McCoy: Could win starting job1h ago
McCoy (leg) shouldn't be counted out of the quarterback competition, according to JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington.
McCoy has been with the team throughout Jay Gruden's tenure as head coach, while Case Keenum and Dwayne Haskins are still learning a new system. Despite being limited to rehab work throughout the offseason program, McCoy is on track to practice at the start of training camp in late July. He should still be viewed as the underdog, but it does appear to be a legitimate three-way battle.
Marqise Lee JAC WR
Jaguars' Marqise Lee: Could land on PUP list2h ago
Lee (knee) is aiming to be ready for Week 1, but there is a chance he starts the season on the PUP list, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
There's also a chance Lee ends up on a snap count even if he's ready for the regular-season opener. He'll be more than a full year removed from his knee injury at that point, but the combination of ACL and PCL damage made for a lengthy recovery and rehab process. Jaguars wide receivers coach Keenan McCardell recently acknowledged that Lee isn't expected to be ready for the start of training camp, instead pointing to later in August as a reasonable target for the 27-year-old's return to practice.
Ed Dickson SEA TE
Seahawks' Ed Dickson: Fighting for job2h ago
Dickson is fighting for a roster spot ahead of the 2019 season, John Clayton of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
The Seahawks seemingly have four tight ends competing for three roster spots. While Will Dissly might be the only real lock to make the final roster given the promise he showed as a rookie, Nick Vannett commanded the highest share of snaps in 2018 and is valuable for what he can do as a blocker. That seemingly leaves Dickson to compete with Jacob Hollister for what is likely one roster spot. Given Hollister's speed and upside as a receiver, the youngster may have a leg up on Dickson. After all, the need for another blocking tight end is less pronounced on a Seahawks team that has a tackle in George Fant who's capable of filling in at that spot.
Michael Gallup DAL WR
Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Looking to emerge as deep threat2h ago
Gallup (leg) thinks improved chemistry with Dak Prescott should allow him to become a consistent deep threat, Nick Eatman of DallasCowboys.com reports. "If you've been watching us out there in the OTAs and minicamp, we've gotten much better," Gallup said Wednesday. "I think we've got a better feel for each other and where I'm going to be and everything. I'm pretty excited about that part."
He showed plenty of field-stretching potential as a rookie -- 10 of Gallup's 33 catches last year went for 20 or more yards, but he also had a handful of near-misses on deep tosses. The second-year receiver will likely have to be more productive and efficient with his targets if he's going to take a step forward in 2019, because it's hard to project a big increase in his volume with Amari Cooper and Ezekiel Elliott being Prescott's primary options, and Randall Cobb and Jason Witten also pushing for looks. Even if Gallup is capped at about six targets a game -- he averaged 5.5 a game after last season's bye week, including two playoff contests -- he could still put up strong numbers if he's able to turn them into big gains on a regular basis.
Glenn Robinson III DET SG
Pistons' Glenn Robinson: Will have 2019-20 option picked up11h ago
The Pistons will exercise the team's $4,278,750 option for Robinson entering the 2019-20 season, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
While Robinson wasn't particularly impressive during 2018-19, averaging 4.2 points and 1.5 rebounds over 13 minutes per contest, he did enough to warrant the front office keeping him on the roster for another campaign. He will head into his contract year looking to improve on a 29 three-point percentage from last season and will likely settle into a bench role for the Pistons once again.
Jon Leuer DET PF
Pistons' Jon Leuer: Headed to Milwaukee13h ago
Leuer was traded to Milwaukee on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Leuer was sent to Milwaukee in exchange for Tony Snell and the 30th pick in the 2019 draft. The veteran forward had a disappointing 2018-19 season as he struggled to find a consistent role in the Pistons' frontcourt, seeing his averages drop to a mere 3.8 points and 2.4 rebounds in 9.8 minutes per game over 41 appearances. He'll likely struggle to find time in a crowded Bucks frontcourt even with Brook Lopez and Nikola Mirotic set to hit free agency in July.
Tony Snell MIL SG
Bucks' Tony Snell: Dealt to Detroit13h ago
Snell was traded to the Pistons on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Snell, who averaged 6.0 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 threes in 17.6 minutes per game last year for the Bucks will be sent to the Pistons along with the 30th pick in the 2019 draft for Jon Leuer. Snell's playing time decreased by nearly 10 minutes per game in 2019 although he still managed to retain a solid rotational role for the Eastern Conference champions. Depending on who Detroit acquires through the draft and free agency, Snell could compete for the Piston's starting small forward spot in 2019-20.
Jae Crowder UTA PF
Jazz's Jae Crowder: Moved to Grizzlies1d ago
Crowder -- plus Grayson Allen, Kyle Korver, the 23rd pick in Thursday's Draft and a future first-round pick -- has been traded to the Grizzlies in exchange for Mike Conley, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Crowder played a sixth-man role with the Jazz last season, averaging 11.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists across 27.1 minutes. He'll be entering his age 28 season next year, and it's possible he sees his role increase with the rebuilding Grizzlies.
Kyle Korver UTA SG
Jazz's Kyle Korver: Dealt to Grizzlies1d ago
Korver -- plus Grayson Allen, Jae Crowder, the 23rd pick in Thursday's Draft and a future first-round pick -- has been traded to the Grizzlies in exchange for Mike Conley, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Korver spent last season between Cleveland and Utah, appearing in 70 games and averaging 8.6 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 19.1 minutes while shooting 39.7 percent from beyond the arc. Considering he'll be entering his age 38 season next year, it's possible Memphis will look to deal Korver to a contender to make room for minutes for younger players.
Grayson Allen UTA SG
Jazz's Grayson Allen: Traded to Grizzlies1d ago
Allen -- plus Kyle Korver and Jae Crowder, the 23rd pick in Thursday's Draft and a future first-round pick -- was traded to the Grizzlies on Wednesday in exchange for Mike Conley, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Allen, a rookie last season, played just 416 minutes for the Jazz. Seeing 10.9 minutes per game, he averaged 5.6 points on 37.6 percent shooting. It's possible he'll see more run in 2019-20 with the rebuilding Grizzlies.
Alexander Edler VAN D
Canucks' Alexander Edler: Signs two-year deal1h ago
Edler agreed to terms on a two-year, $12 million contract extension with Vancouver on Thursday.
While Edler will see a $1 million per year pay bump, he is trading it for limited term, which the team likely wanted considering he is 33 years of age. The blueliner topped the 30-point mark for the seventh time in his NHL career this season. The Swede should still be capable of hitting that threshold in 2019-20, giving him solid fantasy value.
Jim O'Brien OTT C
Jim O'Brien: Signs with German club2h ago
O'Brien agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Nurnberg Ice Tigers (DEL) on Tuesday.
After making just 14 NHL appearances since 2013-14, O'Brien will give the DEL a try for the 2019-20 campaign. The 30-year-old saw action in just 11 AHL games last season due to injury, in which he notched three points. At this point, the University of Minnesota product has likely played his last game in North America and will eventually retire with eight goals, five assists and 16 PIM in 77 NHL contests.
Andrei Vasilevskiy TB G
Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Awarded Vezina Trophy2h ago
Vasilevskiy took home the Vezina Trophy at Wednesday's NHL Awards.
Vasilevskiy becomes just the second Russian netminder (Sergei Bobrovsky) to win the Vezina. The 24-year-old Vasilevskiy racked up a league-leading 39 wins this season, along with a .925 save percentage and 2.40 GAA. Vasilevskiy is heading into the 2019-20 campaign on the final year of a bridge deal he signed in July of 2016 and will no doubt be eager to get back over the 40-win mark after coming up just one shy this year.
Nikita Kucherov TB RW
Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Takes home Hart Trophy3h ago
Kucherov won the Hart Trophy at Wednesday's NHL Awards.
It was the first Hart Trophy win for Kucherov and the second in franchise history (Martin St. Louis in 2003-04). The 25-year-old Kucherov reached the 100-point mark for the second time in his career, setting personal bests in goals (41), assists (87) and shooting percentage (16.7). There is no reason to doubt Kucherov can reach that milestone again in 2019-20 and he should be considered among the top five picks in all fantasy formats.
Mark Giordano CGY D
Flames' Mark Giordano: Elected top defensemen13h ago
Giordano has been awarded the Norris Trophy for top defenseman during the 2018-19 season.
Giordano beat out the likes of Brent Burns and Victor Hedman to win his first ever Norris Trophy on Wednesday. The Flames defenseman had an outstanding year, putting up 57 assists and 74 points in 78 games this past season. He ranked third in goals and assists and second in points among blueliners. Not only did Giordano make his mark on the offensive side of the puck, he also was a plus-39 and racked up 144 blocked shots.
Ryan O'Reilly STL C
Blues' Ryan O'Reilly: Crowned best defensive forward13h ago
O'Reilly was awarded the Selke Trophy as the league's top defensive forward for the 2018-19 season Wednesday.
Coming off a Stanley Cup and a Conn Smythe-winning campaign, O'Reilly was able to add best defensive forward to his accolades. On top of his 77 points in 82 games, the 28-year-old was a plus-22 with 36 blocked shots this season. Following career highs in plus-minus, assists and points, O'Reilly will hope to follow up a storybook season with the Blues next year.
