Tim Anderson CHW SS
White Sox's Tim Anderson: Leaves Tuesday's game7m ago
Anderson was helped off the field Tuesday after suffering an apparent right ankle injury, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Anderson made a lunging play behind second base and appeared to tweak his right ankle/foot as prepared to throw across his body to first base. The 26-year-old put no weight on the leg as he was assisted off the field. Anderson went 2-for-3 with a run scored prior to exiting the game.
Trevor Cahill LAA SP
Angels' Trevor Cahill: Returning from IL on Wednesday18m ago
Cahill (elbow) will be activated off the 10-day injured list Wednesday, but it's unclear what role he'll serve for the Angels, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The Angels have yet to name a starter for Wednesday and manager Brad Ausmus didn't specify how Cahill will be used upon his activation. The 31-year-old has a 7.18 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 46:20 K:BB over 11 starts this season but the team has recently discussed moving him to the bullpen. Regardless, Cahill isn't a desirable option for fantasy purposes.
Giancarlo Stanton NYY LF
Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Suffers right knee contusion33m ago
Stanton's early exit from Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays was due to a right knee contusion, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Stanton left the game in the first inning with what at first appeared to be a hand injury after a slide into third base, but per Hoch, the knock is actually a right knee contusion. The slugger will get an MRI which should provide more information as to the extent of the injury, but he should be considered day-to-day for the time being.
Corey Seager LAD SS
Dodgers' Corey Seager: May return after All-Star break39m ago
Manager Dave Roberts said the team hopes Seager (hamstring) will rejoin the Dodgers right after the All-Star break in Boston, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Seager has resumed running and swinging a bat over the last few days and should now begin to ramp up his baseball activities. The 25-year-old was already expected to play in rehab games prior to the All-Star break, so it's no surprise the team is looking for him to return immediately after the midseason festivities.
Forrest Whitley HOU SP
Astros' Forrest Whitley: Nearing mound work1h ago
Whitley (shoulder) is expected to resume mound work within the next couple weeks, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Whitley was placed on the minor-league injured list in late May with right shoulder fatigue and has since been at the Astros' spring training facility in Florida. The 21-year-old is expected to return to minor-league games around the third week of July, assuming he avoids any setbacks.
Roberto Ramos COL 1B
Rockies' Roberto Ramos: Mashes grand slam in Triple-A2h ago
Ramos went 2-for-5 with a grand slam for Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.
Ramos has been raking in the Pacific Coast League, as this sixth-inning grand slam marked his 17th long ball of the season to go along with an impressive .300/.393/.583 slash line through 270 at-bats. He's also driven in 62 runs and laced 14 doubles. This is the 24-year-old's first stint above Double-A in his six-season minor-league career, so he's certainly doing a good job with the opportunity to this point.
Chris Godwin TB WR
Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Expectations high heading into '194h ago
Head coach Bruce Arians recently reiterated an earlier statement that Godwin could log triple-digit receptions in the coming season, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Arians originally set the lofty bar via a comment in March, and he doubled down on his public expectations in the midst of OTAs at the end of May. While a 100-catch haul for a No. 2 receiver in a Mike Evans-helmed wideout corps may ultimately be a bit ambitious, Godwin would certainly generate an impressive line in the coming season were he to mirror the same degree of year-over-year improvement he demonstrated between his rookie campaign and his sophomore season. Godwin upped his catches from 34 to 59, boosted his receiving yards from 525 to 842, and saw his touchdowns surge from one to seven in 2018, and despite being tasked with learning a new offense this offseason, the Penn State product embraces and echoes his new head coach's confidence in his ability. "I always think I can be a red zone threat," said Godwin. "I think I can be a threat from wherever on the field. That's my goal, is to keep progressing as a receiver and be one of the top guys in the league. I've got a lot of work to do but I'm looking forward to putting that work in."
Nick Vannett SEA TE
Seahawks' Nick Vannett: Falls on roster bubble5h ago
Vannett may face competition for a roster spot, Nishant Kondepudi of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Will Dissly (knee) seems like Seattle's only lock at tight end, with Vannett, Ed Dickson and Jacob Hollister competing for what may only be two spots. The team has been using offensive tackle George Fant as a blocking tight end, potentially reducing the need for Vannett or Dickson. In any case, the 2016 third-round pick failed to capitalize on a prime opportunity last season when injuries limited Dissly and Dickson to 14 combined appearances. Vannett posted a 29-269-3 receiving line on 43 targets while averaging 35.2 snaps in 15 games.
Brian Hoyer NE QB
Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Remains in backup mix6h ago
Hoyer is one of three quarterbacks CSN New England's Phil Perry expects to make the Patriots' 53-man roster.
The only real question here is whether the Patriots elect to carry one or two quarterbacks behind starter Tom Brady. Given that Jarrett Stidham was a fourth-round draft pick this past April, he looks like a roster lock. Meanwhile, Hoyer, who is under contract through the 2019 season, provides the team with an experienced backup option who knows the Patriots' schemes well and can mentor the rookie. The veteran signal-caller, who turns 34 in October, logged just two regular-season passing attempts in 2018, but Hoyer did start six games for the 49ers in 2017.
Rhett Ellison NYG TE
Giants' Rhett Ellison: Stands out in Engram's absence6h ago
Ellison took advantage of Evan Engram's injury-related absence from June minicamp, Matt Lombardo of NJ.com reports.
Engram was sidelined with a minor hamstring injury that's expected to clear up before the start of training camp in late July. Meanwhile, Ellison made it through the offseason program in good health, after sitting out Week 17 of last season due to a concussion. He doesn't have any guaranteed money remaining on the final two seasons of his four-year, $18 million contract, but a lack of competition for the No. 2 job at tight end puts the 30-year-old in good position to keep his roster spot.
Jonah Williams CIN T
Bengals' Jonah Williams: Gets season-ending surgery7h ago
Williams (shoulder) underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a torn labrum and is expected to miss his entire rookie season, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website reports.
The 11th overall pick in this year's draft was set to take over at left tackle, pushing Cordy Glenn inside to left guard. Glenn now figures to man his accustomed spot, while Clint Boling (undisclosed), John Jerry and Christian Westerman are the leading candidates to take over at left guard. Williams should make a full recovery before the Bengals start their offseason program next year.
Dexter Williams GB RB
Packers' Dexter Williams: Well-positioned for roster spot11h ago
Williams is one of four tailbacks on the Green Bay roster after the team cut Kapri Bibbs earlier in June.
The rookie sixth-round pick is in excellent position for a spot on the 53-man roster, likely competing with 26-year-old Tra Carson (ribs) for a single job. Williams may even have an opportunity to push Jamaal Williams for backup work -- a potentially valuable role given that lead back Aaron Jones has suffered three MCL sprains in two pro seasons. Jones returned healthy for the start of the offseason program and reportedly is in much better shape after he changed his diet to reduce sugar intake.
Kristaps Porzingis DAL PF
Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Max offer expected from Mavs3h ago
Porzingis (knee) is expected to be offered a full five-year, $158 million maximum contract, Shams Charania of Stadium reports.
It appears the Mavericks aren't interested in even entertaining the idea of Porzingis signing an offer sheet elsewhere after trading for him at last year's deadline. Prior to suffering a torn ACL, he was averaging 22.7 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and 1.2 assists per game. If Porzingis finalizes the deal with Dallas, he and Luka Doncic will be forming one of the most exciting young duos in the league.
Markelle Fultz ORL PG
Magic's Markelle Fultz: Timetable still unclear4h ago
General manager John Hammond has "no idea" when Fultz will be able to play, Dan Feldman of NBC Sports reports. "We want to have patience with [Fultz] and get him ready and put him on the court when he can be most productive."
Hammond also noted that Fultz will not play in summer league, but that the point guard is in good shape. It's possible fantasy owners will go into drafts next season still without knowing if Fultz will play at all. But there's still plenty of time until preseason begins, and we may be able to get a glimpse of him then.
Amile Jefferson ORL PF
Magic's Amile Jefferson: Becomes restricted free agent5h ago
Jefferson was extended a qualifying offer by the Magic on Tuesday, making him a restricted free agent.
Jefferson saw limited action as a rookie last season, playing 68 minutes and totaling 27 points, 21 rebounds, three assists, three steals and three blocks. There's a strong chance he'll remain in the Magic organization, as it's unlikely he fields offers from many teams.
Khem Birch ORL C
Magic's Khem Birch: Becomes restricted free agent5h ago
Birch was extended a qualifying offer from the Magic, making him a restricted free agent.
As a sophomore last season, Birch averaged 4.8 points and 3.8 rebounds across 12.9 minutes in 50 appearances. It seems unlikely he'll receive a lucrative offer from many other teams.
Mo Bamba ORL C
Magic's Mo Bamba: To play Summer League5h ago
Bamba will be a part of the Magic's summer league team, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Bamba's last NBA game came back on Jan. 31 before he was sidelined for the remainder of the year with a stress fracture in his lower left leg. While Bamba was able to avoid surgery, the injury cost him valuable developmental time, though he's reportedly been working on adding strength and weight over the last several weeks. The No. 6 overall pick in 2018 will be the headliner for a Magic roster that also includes several members of the Lakeland Magic -- the team's G League affiliate. Orlando's 2019 first-rounder, Chuma Okeke, will not be available as he recovers from a torn ACL suffered during the NCAA Tournament.
Jake Layman POR SF
Trail Blazers' Jake Layman: Headed for restricted free agency9h ago
The Trail Blazers extended a qualifying offer to Layman on Tuesday, making him an restricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Layman is coming off his most productive NBA season in 2018-19, posting career-bests across the board. Layman will have the opportunity to see what kind of value the market has him set at, and if he signs an offer sheet with another team, Portland will have three days to match. Given how much the league values versatile wings like Layman, there will surely be a market for him once free agency begins.
Pavel Zacha NJ C
Devils' Pavel Zacha: Receives qualifying offer40m ago
Zacha earned a qualifying offer from New Jersey on Tuesday.
Zacha set a new career-high in goals with 13 last season, and produced 25 points in 61 NHL games. The 22-year-old hasn't quite lived up to the hype of being a top-six draft pick in 2015, producing just 76 points. The Devils could be interested in re-signing Zacha to a long term deal, or could let him walk next year if his play isn't up to par with their expectations.
Brandon Baddock NJ LW
Devils' Brandon Baddock: Handed QO from Devils42m ago
Baddock was given a qualifying offer from the Devils on Tuesday.
If he signs the contract, Baddock will receive a salary worht $715,000 at both the NHL and AHL levels, with the latter more likely for the near future. He hasn't made his NHL debut yet in his career, and only produced 10 points in 67 AHL games this past campaign
Kerby Rychel CGY LW
Kerby Rychel: Not qualified by Flames1h ago
Rychel didn't receive a qualifying offer from Calgary, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Rychel suited up in just two NHL games this past campaign, so this news isn't quite surprising. He has, however, racked up 14 points at the NHL level in his career, so he could be a candidate to give you solid production at the AHL level, and receive a call to the big club if warranted for next season.
Brett Pollock CGY LW
Brett Pollock: Set to hit open market1h ago
Pollock didn't earn a qualifying offer from the Flames, making him a free agent.
Pollock spent last season exclusively in the AHL, playing 53 games and collecting 12 points in the process. The Canadian is only 23 years old, and could warrant a deal elsewhere should he get the opportunity.
Mason McDonald CGY G
Mason McDonald: Doesn't receive QO1h ago
McDonald wasn't issued a qualifying offer from the Flames before Tuesday's 5pm ET deadline.
This news doesn't come as a surprise, considering the 23-year-old has played exclusively in the ECHL the past two season. McDonald will be a free agent come July 1, but it's highly unlikely he gets a shot at the NHL level at some point in his career.
Curtis Lazar CGY C
Curtis Lazar: Not issued QO by Calgary1h ago
Lazar wasn't issued a qualifying offer from the Flames, making him a free agent July 1.
Lazar played just one game with the big club last season, so his failure to receive an offer sheet shouldn't come as a surprise. Before this season, however, the 24-year-old racked up 51 points in 245 games split between the Flames and Ottawa. He is still in contact with Flames representatives about a long-term deal, so his days in Calgary aren't quite over yet.
