Jeurys Familia NYM RP
Mets' Jeurys Familia: Nearing rehab assignment1m ago
Familia (shoulder) could begin a minor-league rehab assignment in the near future, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.
Familia has been on the shelf since June 18 with a Bennet lesion in his right shoulder, but he's feeling better and nearing a return to game action. While the right-hander spent time on the injured list earlier in the season due to the same issue, he said he's not considering surgery at this point, per Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.
Yandy Diaz TB 3B
Rays' Yandy Diaz: Trending towards Thursday return8m ago
Manager Kevin Cash said there is a "very good chance" Diaz (hamstring) returns from the injured list Thursday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Diaz has been sidelined since June 16 with a hamstring injury, but it sounds like he's on track to return from the injured list when first eligible Thursday. Prior to landing on the shelf, the third baseman slashed .286/.363/.502 with 11 home runs and a stolen base in 56 games.
Mike Soroka ATL SP
Braves' Mike Soroka: On track to start Friday13m ago
Soroka (forearm) is expected to start Friday against the Mets, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Soroka was struck by a comebacker during his last start, but he felt good during a bullpen session Wednesday, putting the right-hander on track to start Friday's series opener in New York. In 13 starts this season, Soroka owns a shiny 2.07 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 63:19 K:BB in 78.1 innings.
Bryse Wilson ATL SP
Braves' Bryse Wilson: Slated to start Thursday17m ago
Wilson will be recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Thursday against the Cubs, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Wilson will take the rotation spot of Mike Foltynewicz, who was sent to the minors after struggling through his first 11 starts. The 21-year-old owns a solid 3.79 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 79:16 K:BB across 78.1 innings with Gwinnett, though he hasn't fared as well in the majors (8.31 ERA, 2.08 WHIP and 4:4 K:BB in 4.1 innings with the Braves).
Craig Kimbrel CHC RP
Cubs' Craig Kimbrel: Joining Cubs on Thursday22m ago
Kimbrel will join the Cubs ahead of Thursday's series finale against the Braves, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.
Kimbrel is ready to make his long-awaited 2019 big-league debut after completing his fourth appearance with Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, striking out two across a perfect ninth inning. It's unclear if Kimbrel will immediately take over closer duties, but he should get there soon enough.
Mitch Haniger SEA RF
Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Hoping to take BP over weekend26m ago
Haniger (groin) is hoping to take batting practice in Houston over the weekend, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Haniger has been hitting in the cage and taking fly balls recently, and the hope is that he'll be able to progress to on-field batting practice when the Mariners head to Houston this weekend. The outfielder will still need to go out on a rehab assignment before returning.
Jeremy Langford ATL RB
Jeremy Langford: Waived from IR2h ago
Langford (undisclosed) was waived from the Falcons' injured reserve list Wednesday, per the league's official transaction log.
Langford was waived in May with an undisclosed injury and reverted to IR after clearing waivers. After failed stints with the Ravens, Jets and Dolphins since flopping as the Bears' starter in 2015, Langford's future prospects in the NFL aren't great.
George Fant SEA T
Seahawks' George Fant: Expected to play tight end2h ago
Head coach Pete Carroll expects Fant to play tight end in 2019, Liz Mathews of USA Today reports. "Now we come back with a real clear idea of what he can do and how we can utilize him [compared to last season]," Carroll said after minicamp. "So we're just so much farther ahead in that regard and taking advantage of the mismatch that he creates. And there's not very many 329-pound tight ends in the NFL, you know, and it's fun to be huge."
Fant served as an offensive tackle for the majority of his professional career, but the Seahawks experimented with him at tight end last fall once injuries depleted the team's depth at that position Week 4. While he originally was needed to step into that role given his superior run-blocking skills, he eventually ran routes as well and ultimately logged nine snaps from the slot and 227 snaps overall at tight end in 2018. With Will Dissly (kneecap), Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson back in the fold, it's unlikely Fant makes significant strides as a receiver, but don't be surprised if he vultures a touchdown or two in the red zone.
Cordy Glenn CIN T
Bengals' Cordy Glenn: Returning to left tackle3h ago
Glenn is expected to move back to left tackle with Jonah Williams (shoulder) headed for season-ending surgery, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.
The addition of Williams, the team's first-round pick, was expected to provide a huge boost for the Bengals offensive line while allowing the 29-year-old Glenn to move to an interior spot. However, with Williams now out of the mix for the entire 2019 campaign, Glenn will be pressed back into action at his former position.
Clint Boling CIN G
Bengals' Clint Boling: Misses spring workouts3h ago
Boling (undisclosed) didn't participate in spring workouts due to an undisclosed injury, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.
It's not clear what Boling is dealing with, or if he'll be ready in time for training camp. When healthy, the 30-year-old and incumbent left guard will look to defend his spot in the starting lineup.
Alex Erickson CIN WR
Bengals' Alex Erickson: Working with first-team offense3h ago
Erickson got added work with the first-team offense in spring workouts due to the injuries of A.J. Green (toe) and John Ross (undisclosed), Michael LaPlaca of the Bengals' official site reports.
Already valued for his prowess on kick and punt returns, Erickson seems to be making a case for an expanded role on offense. Whether the Wisconsin product actually improves upon the career-high 362 offensive reps he logged in 2018 is no sure thing, but it's particularly possible since the receivers above him on the depth chart (A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, John Ross) have combined to miss 37 combined games over the past three seasons. Meanwhile, Erickson has been a modicum of health since entering the league in 2016 and hasn't missed a game over that time period. In 16 contests last year, Erickson caught 20 of 29 targets for 167 yards and no touchdowns with his best performance coming in Week 17 against the Bengals, when he caught six of six targets for 63 yards.
Darius Jennings TEN WR
Titans' Darius Jennings: Serving as kick returner3h ago
Jennings served as a kick return specialist in spring workouts, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Jennings is being mentioned as the favorite for the No. 6 slot on a depth chart headlined by Corey Davis, Adam Humphries and A.J. Brown. However, it's not certain Tennessee will even carry six wideouts on the active roster, making Jennings far from a lock to make the team out of training camp. Other depth receivers, such as Cameron Batson, have also been reported to have had impressive offseasons and still have plenty of time to bump Jennings from his perch.
Cheick Diallo NO PF
Pelicans' Cheick Diallo: Won't get qualifying offer1h ago
The Pelicans declined to extend a qualifying offer to Diallo ahead of free agency, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
This isn't overly surprising after New Orleans exercised Jahlil Okafor's team option and drafted Jaxson Hayes eighth overall, but Diallo figures to draw a decent amount of interest on the open market. The Kansas product, who averaged 14.0 minutes per game last season, will be an unrestricted free agent on June 30.
Marc Gasol TOR C
Raptors' Marc Gasol: Exercises player option2h ago
Gasol will exercise his $25.6 million player option to remain with the Raptors, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Gasol was traded from the Grizzlies to the Raptors at the deadline last season. While he suffered from a workload and usage perspective, Gasol was an integral piece of Toronto's championship run. The veteran may have been able to garner more total money by opting out and signing a long-term deal, but it's unclear if the Raptors were interested in that while Kawhi Leonard's decision still looms over Toronto, and the league.
Tyler Herro MIA G
Heat's Tyler Herro: Playing in summer league3h ago
Herro will play for the Heat's summer league team, Sam Amico of AmicoHoops.net reports.
As expected, the 13th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft will headline the Heat's summer league squad. Last year at Kentucky, he averaged 14.0 points per game while shooting 35.5 percent from distance.
Johnathan Williams LAL PF
Lakers' Johnathan Williams: Qualifying offer extended3h ago
Williams was extended a qualifying offer by the Lakers on Wednesday, making him a restricted free agent, Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times reports. If Williams accepts the qualifying offer, he becomes a two-way player.
Williams saw spot run for the Lakers last season, appearing in 24 games and seeing 15.5 minutes per night. It's unlikely he'll see enough of a role increase to become fantasy relevant.
Alex Caruso LAL SG
Lakers' Alex Caruso: Becomes restricted free agent3h ago
Caruso was extended a qualifying offer by the Lakers on Wednesday, making him a restricted free agent, Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Caruso appeared in 25 games with the Lakers last season. He saw 21.2 minutes per game, averaging 9.2 points, 3.1 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 1.0 steal. It's possible he occupies a backup point guard role for Los Angeles next season.
Kelly Oubre Jr. PHO SF
Suns' Kelly Oubre: Gets qualifying offer from Suns3h ago
Oubre was extended a qualifying offer by the Suns on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The decision to make Oubre a restricted free agent doesn't come as much of a surprise, though it remains to be seen if Phoenix will retain the Kansas product, who's expected to receive significant interest on the open market. After beginning his career in Washington, Oubre was traded to Phoenix last season, where he appeared in 40 games and averaged 16.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.0 blocks per contest.
Chris Nell NYR G
Rangers' Chris Nell: Earns qualifying offer26m ago
Nell was sent a qualifying offer from the Rangers on Tuesday.
Nell has played exclusively in the AHL for Hartford, going 10-11-0 with a 3.38 GAA and .894 save percentage in 24 career games. The Rangers seem to be in limbo with their goaltending situation at the moment, especially with an aging Henrik Lundqvist between the pipes.
Brendan Lemieux NYR LW
Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Set with QO from Rangers34m ago
Lemieux was issued a qualifying offer from the Rangers on Tuesday.
After he was buried on the fourth line in Winnipeg, Lemieux caught a break after he was dealt to the Rangers in the Kevin Hayes deal at the trade deadline. He tallied 12 goals and 17 points in 63 games between the Jets and Rangers last campaign. The 23-year-old could be in line for a larger role as the roster begins to take shape heading into the 2019-20 season.
Tony DeAngelo NYR D
Rangers' Anthony DeAngelo: Receives qualifying offer35m ago
New York extended a qualifying offer to DeAngelo (lower body) on Tuesday.
DeAngelo had his best season yet as a pro in 2018-19, setting career highs in assists (26), points (30) and games played (61) while posting a plus-6 rating. The former Coyote could easily surpass the 40-point mark in 2019-20 if he's able to stay healthy.
Vinni Lettieri NYR RW
Rangers' Vinni Lettieri: Qualified by New York38m ago
The Rangers handed Lettieri a qualifying offer Tuesday.
Lettieri didn't have much success with the big club this season, tallying three points in 27 appearances, but he was highly productive during his time with AHL Hartford, racking up 23 goals and 48 points in 48 games. The University of Minnesota product will get a chance to compete for a spot on the Rangers' Opening Night roster during training camp.
Brandon Halverson NYR G
Brandon Halverson: Cut loose by New York43m ago
Halverson didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Rangers on Tuesday.
The Rangers have a number of high-end goaltending prospects in their pipeline, so the fact that they're comfortable with letting Halverson walk into free agency is hardly surprising. The 23-year-old was, however, a second-round pick in 2014, so he'll probably get another shot with a different organization.
Chris Bigras NYR D
Chris Bigras: Not tendered by New York1h ago
Bigras didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Rangers on Tuesday.
Bigras was a steady producer from the blue line for AHL Hartford last season, notching 22 points in 52 games, so although his time with the Rangers has likely come to an end, he should be able to land a two-way deal with another organization with relative ease this offseason.
