Nabil Crismatt ARI RP
Dodgers' Nabil Crismatt: Inks minors deal with Dodgers7h ago
Crismatt signed a minor-league contract Friday with the Dodgers, Michael Mayer of MetsmerizedOnline.com reports.
Crismatt was lit up for 13 runs -- 12 earned -- over 13 major-league innings with the Padres and Diamondbacks in 2023, but he held a solid 3.38 ERA and 144:47 K:BB in 157 big-league frames between 2020-22. Maybe the 28-year-old can get himself righted in the Dodgers' vaunted pitching system.
Evan White SEA 1B
Angels' Evan White: Flipped to Halos7h ago
The Angels acquired White (hip) and Tyler Thomas from Atlanta on Friday in exchange for Max Stassi (hip/personal) and David Fletcher, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
This is basically a swap of bad contracts, with White's maybe being the worst of them all. He hasn't appeared in a major-league game since 2021 and holds a career .544 OPS in 306 plate appearances at baseball's highest level. On top of that, he is currently in recovery mode from May hip surgery. The 27-year-old former top prospect is due $15 million guaranteed between 2024-25 and carries a total of $4 million in buyouts on his club options for 2026, 2027 and 2028.
Max Stassi LAA C
Braves' Max Stassi: Dealt to Atlanta7h ago
Atlanta acquired Stassi (hip/personal) and David Fletcher from the Angels on Friday in exchange for Evan White (hip) and Tyler Thomas, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
The reigning NL East champs are already set at catcher with Sean Murphy and Travis d'Arnaud, so Stassi could quickly be flipped to another team -- assuming he's ready to resume his playing career. The 32-year-old did not appear in a game at any level in 2023 after suffering a hip injury late in spring training and then having to deal with a serious family medical issue.
David Fletcher LAA SS
Braves' David Fletcher: Heads to ATL in trade7h ago
Atlanta acquired Fletcher and Max Stassi (hip/personal) from the Angels on Friday in exchange for Evan White (hip) and Tyler Thomas, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Fletcher enjoyed a mini breakout during the COVID-shortened 2020 season and landed a five-year, $26 million contract extension from the Angels the following spring, but he has slashed just .259/.296/.327 in 251 major-league games since the beginning of the 2021 campaign. The 29-year-old infielder still has $15.5 million left on his deal, which runs (guaranteed) through 2025 with an $8 million club option for 2026 and an $8.5 million club option for 2027.
Nick Robertson BOS RP
Cardinals' Nick Robertson: Traded to STL for O'Neill8h ago
The Red Sox traded Robertson and Victor Santos (undisclosed) to the Cardinals on Friday in exchange for Tyler O'Neill (foot), Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
Robertson had a tough time finding his footing in 2023, posting a 6.04 ERA and 1.75 WHIP across 22.1 innings between the Dodgers and Red Sox. St. Louis' relatively weak bullpen gives Robertson a better chance at sticking around in the majors to begin next season, but he likely won't be relied upon in many high-leverage situations.
Tyler O'Neill STL LF
Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Shipped to Boston9h ago
The Cardinals traded O'Neill (foot) to the Red Sox on Friday in exchange for Nick Robertson and Victor Santos (undisclosed), Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
After trading Alex Verdugo to the Yankees on Tuesday, the Red Sox will now bring in O'Neill to fill their opening in the outfield. O'Neill slashed .231/.312/.403 with nine homers and 21 RBI across 266 plate appearances last season while battling a multitude of injuries. No updates have been provided regarding the foot injury that put an early end to O'Neill's season, but he's a safe bet to secure a starting spot in Boston's outfield once he's healthy.
Kyle Lowry MIA PG
Heat's Kyle Lowry: Leads Heat in scoring2h ago
Lowry produced 17 points (6-13 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds, five assists and two steals over 32 minutes during Friday's 111-99 loss to the Cavaliers.
Lowry usually takes a backseat when it comes to shooting volume, though he took more of the load Friday with Jimmy Butler and Duncan Robinson struggling from the floor. With Bam Adebayo (hip) and Tyler Herro (ankle) still out, Lowry figures to continue seeing more playing time and opportunities to contribute on the offensive end of the floor.
Kevin Love MIA PF
Heat's Kevin Love: Notches double-double off pine2h ago
Love logged 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-8 3Pt), 12 rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal across 28 minutes during Friday's 111-99 loss to the Cavaliers.
The 35-year old forward out of UCLA continues to provide value off the Miami bench. Love has scored in double-digits in two of his last three games and his 28 minutes played Friday was a season-high. He should continue to get more looks on offense as long as Bam Adebayo remains out with a bruised left hip.
Duncan Robinson MIA SG
Heat's Duncan Robinson: Barely avoids donut in loss2h ago
Robinson produced one point (0-7 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and one assist in 23 minutes during Friday's 111-99 loss to Cleveland.
Robinson entered Friday's game with a groin injury he sustained in Wednesday's win over the Raptors. That may have played a big part in his ice-cold shooting performance against the Cavs, though he wasn't the only Heat starter to struggle from the field. Still, Robinson entered Friday's game averaging career highs in points (15.0) and field goal shooting (48.8 percent) as he takes a more prominent role in the offense with Tyler Herro (ankle) still out.
Max Strus CLE SG
Cavaliers' Max Strus: Ice cold in win2h ago
Strus amassed 11 points (4-17 FG, 2-11 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal across 34 minutes during Friday's 111-99 win over the Heat.
Strus accounted for nine of the Cavalier's 24 missed three-point attempts Friday night. He still managed to reach double-digit points for the sixth time in seven games and is averaging career highs in rebounds (5.5), assists (4.1) and minutes (35.1) as his role continues to expand.
Darius Garland CLE PG
Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Pickpocket in win2h ago
Garland recorded 18 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-7 FT), two rebounds, six assists and four steals in 26 minutes during Friday's 111-99 victory over Miami.
Garland's led the team with four steals and was the second leading scorer for the Cavs behind Donovan Mitchell (27 points). Garland entered Friday's game averaging 19.7 points per game and has scored 18-plus points in five of his last six games. His 26 minutes was his lowest since Nov. 25, but prior to Friday's contest he had played at least 34 minutes in five straight games.
Donovan Mitchell CLE SG
Cavaliers' Donovan Mitchell: Leading scorer in win2h ago
Mitchell totaled 27 points (9-17 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 13 rebounds, six assists and one steal over 36 minutes during Friday's 111-99 win over the Heat.
Mitchell led the Cavs in scoring for the fourth time in five games. He registered his second double-double of the season and his 13 rebounds was a career-high. Mitchell entered Friday's game averaging 27.6 points per game -- ninth in the league -- and is taking a career-high 21.2 shots per game as the main scoring option for Cleveland.
Ryan Hartman MIN RW
Wild's Ryan Hartman: Pockets helper1h ago
Hartman notched an assist, three shots on goal, four PIM and two hits in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Oilers.
Hartman had to mix it up with Evander Kane after the Oilers' winger laid a hit on Jonas Brodin that knocked the defenseman out of the game. Hartman was also involved in another fracas at the final buzzer. The 29-year-old snapped his eight-game point drought with the helper, a span in which he missed three contests -- two for a suspension and one for an illness. He's at 12 points, 51 shots on net, 21 hits, 18 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 22 outings this season. Hartman's inconsistent offense has seen him drop into a bottom-six role at even strength.
Marcus Johansson MIN LW
Wild's Marcus Johansson: Collects two assists1h ago
Johansson recorded a pair of assists in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Oilers.
Johansson helped out on goals by Matt Boldy and Joel Eriksson Ek early in the second period. With three helpers over his last two contests, Johansson is moving past his 10-game point drought that spanned most of November. The 33-year-old forward is up to 11 points, 37 shots on net, 16 hits and a minus-2 rating through 25 outings. He's unlikely to see more than middle-six usage with some power-play time.
Brock Faber MIN D
Wild's Brock Faber: Two helpers in Friday's loss1h ago
Faber notched a pair of assists, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Oilers.
Faber set up Matt Boldy's goal early in the second period and added a helper on a Connor Dewar goal later in the frame. With Jonas Brodin (undisclosed) suffering an injury Friday, Faber may be in line for even more responsibility going forward. The 21-year-old has held down a top-four role this season, and he's not exactly being sheltered. He's produced 12 points, 29 shots on net, 41 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating through 25 appearances as a rookie this year.
Connor Dewar MIN C
Wild's Connor Dewar: Buries goal in loss1h ago
Dewar scored a goal in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Oilers.
Dewar had been held off the scoresheet in the first three games of December before scoring Friday. He's registered at least one point in just five of 25 contests this season, but one of those outings was a four-point effort. The 24-year-old has six tallies, two helpers, 26 shots on net, 28 hits and a minus-2 rating while playing mostly in a fourth-line role.
Joel Eriksson Ek MIN C
Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Scores in Friday's loss1h ago
Eriksson Ek scored a goal on four shots and added three hits in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Oilers.
Eriksson Ek has five goals over his last eight outings, though he hasn't recorded an assist in that span. The center's tally Friday briefly gave the Wild a 2-1 lead. He's up to 13 goals, 20 points, 91 shots on net, 45 hits, 23 blocked shots, 26 PIM and a plus-4 rating through 25 contests overall. He remains solid on the second line as well as featuring at the net front on the first power-play unit.
Matt Boldy MIN LW
Wild's Matt Boldy: Tacks on two points in loss1h ago
Boldy scored a goal on two shots, added an assist and logged two PIM in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Oilers.
Two of Boldy's three multi-point efforts this year have come in the last three games. He's also scored all but one of his goals across his last six contests. The winger seems to be thriving under new head coach John Hynes, and that's good news for the Wild's offense in general. Boldy has 15 points, 50 shots on net, 24 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 18 outings.
