    • Luis Urias SD 2B
      Padres' Luis Urias: Starting season in minors
      3m ago

      Urias will reportedly begin the 2019 season at Triple-A El Paso, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

      The Padres are electing to have top-prospect Fernando Tatis open the season in the majors, making Urias the odd man out. The team has been weighing its options heavily all spring, but until this point Tatis was still expected to start in the minors before likely being promoted mid-season. Unfortunately for Urias, the offseason acquisitions of Manny Machado and Ian Kinsler leave no additional room in the infield. Urias remains one of the Padres' top prospects, but the team likely doesn't want him in the majors if he isn't going to see the bulk of the playing time.

    • Dan Jennings LAA RP
      Dan Jennings: Let go by Angels
      17m ago

      Jennings was released by the Angels on Tuesday.

      Jennings was in camp as a non-roster invitee and endured a tough spring as he allowed seven runs on 10 hits through 6.2 innings. The veteran left-hander had a 3.22 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 45:23 K:BB across 64.1 innings with Milwaukee last season as he returns to free agency.

    • Justin Upton LAA RF
      Angels' Justin Upton: Dealing with turf toe
      30m ago

      Upton will open the season on the injured list after being diagnosed with turf toe on his left foot Tuesday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

      General Manager Billy Eppler said earlier Tuesday that Upton would "probably" begin the season on the injured list, but at that point they were still awaiting the results of the MRI. The 31-year-old suffered the injury when he collided with the outfield wall during Sunday's exhibition game. Upton could be eligible to return from the IL as early as April 4, but given the diagnosis he seems likely to require a longer recovery. The Angels have yet to officially provide a return timetable.

    • Fernando Tatis SD SS
      Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr.: Will break camp with Padres
      44m ago

      Tatis has reportedly made the Padres' Opening Day roster, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

      The Padres delayed their decision as long as possible this spring and ultimately decided they wanted Tatis with them when they open the 2019 season Thursday against the Giants. It's a surprising move as the 20-year-old shortstop was still expected to begin the season at Triple-A due to service-time reasons and the fact he's never previously played above Double-A. Tatis, one of the top prospects in all of baseball, should slide into the everyday role at shortstop while Luis Urias will now start the season in the minors, according to Dennis Lin of The Athletic.

    • Chris Stratton SF RP
      Angels' Chris Stratton: Moves into starting rotation
      1h ago

      Stratton will begin the season as the Angels' fifth starter, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

      Stratton was traded from the Giants to the Angels earlier Tuesday and figured to be a depth option for the rotation, but the team instead sent Jaime Barria to the minors so Stratton could serve as a starter. The 28-year-old started 26 games for the Giants in 2018 and had a 5.09 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 112:54 K:BB over 145 innings. Stratton seems likely to remain in the rotation until Andrew Heaney (elbow) or Nick Tropeano (shoulder) are able to return to action.

      Angels' Jaime Barria: Heading to Triple-A
      1h ago

      Barria was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday.

      Barria was expected to begin the season as the Angels' fifth starter with Andrew Heaney (elbow), Nick Tropeano (shoulder) and JC Ramirez sidelined, but that job will instead be taken by recent trade acquisition Chris Stratton. Barria started 26 games for the Angels last season and had a 3.41 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 98:47 K:BB across 129.1 innings, but will have to work his way back to the majors in 2019.

    • Will Fuller HOU WR
      Texans' Will Fuller: Recovery 'on a good track'
      1h ago

      Coach Bill O'Brien is encouraged by Fuller's recovery from a torn ACL in his right knee, Drew Dougherty of the Texans' official site reports. "I think he's doing really well," O'Brien said. "He's on a good track."

      Fuller suffered a premature end to his third season at roughly the same time as Deshaun Watson's own ACL tear from 2017 -- Oct. 25 for the former versus Nov. 2 for the latter. Watson was healthy enough to play by preseason Week 2 last August, but such injuries have a variety of recovery timelines. Considering Fuller has suited up for just 31 of a possible 48 games in his career, O'Brien's words should be taken with a grain of salt. If he can rejoin DeAndre Hopkins (shoulder) sooner than later, though, Fuller's career marks of 14.6 YPC and 8.4 YPT should help him produce as the dynamic Watson enters his third campaign.

    • Marcus Peters LAR CB
      Rams' Marcus Peters: In good graces
      1h ago

      Coach Sean McVay said Peters is in the Rams' long-term plans, Vincent Bonsignore of The Athletic reports. "I think, his ability to take the accountability but then also respond and get it corrected with (defensive backs coaches Aubrey Pleasant and Ejiro Evero), who do an excellent job of correcting and addressing some of those issues," McVay mentioned.

      McVay is referencing Peters' turnaround from a horrid first half of the 2018 season. After a 45-35 loss to the Saints in Week 9, defensive coordinator Wade Phillips altered the philosophy of the unit from one that attacked in man-to-man coverage to a read-and-react zone look. The latter played to Peters' strengths and back into the good graces of McVay and Rams management. Although Peters' interception total has decreased in each of his four campaigns -- from eight in 2015 to three in 2018 -- he'll be playing out the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, which oftentimes yields a fruitful season.

    • Tramon Williams GB CB
      Packers' Tramon Williams: Locked in at cornerback
      3h ago

      Packers coach Matt LaFleur said Tuesday that Williams will play cornerback rather than safety in 2019, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

      Williams began the 2018 season as a starting cornerback in Green Bay, but had to transition to safety for the second half of the year due to Ha Ha Clinton-Dix being traded and three other safeties landing on injured reserve. Following the offseason acquisition of safety Adrian Amos, Williams will return to his more natural position at cornerback. The move makes the Packers a strong candidate to seek safety depth in the 2019 NFL Draft.

    • Jaylen Watkins LAC DB
      Chargers' Jaylen Watkins: Possible starting free safety
      3h ago

      Watkins (knee) is in contention for the starting free safety job, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

      Watkins suffered a torn ACL during the 2018 preseason, but he's expected to be back to full health for the start of the team's offseason program. Rayshawn Jenkins likely has a leg up on the starting spot if only because he was able to play last season, but Watkins was pushing Jahleel Addae, who has since been released, for more playing time before suffering the untimely injury.

    • Vernon Hargreaves TB CB
      Buccaneers' Vernon Hargreaves: Gets nod of confidence from Arians
      3h ago

      Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday that he has confidence in Hargreaves (shoulder) at outside cornerback, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

      Arians' defensive gameplan appears to include limiting Hargreaves to the outside, which could allow the 23-year-old to hone in on improving upon his inconsistent play. Hargreaves' career has been derailed by injuries since his rookie season, as the 2016 first-round pick has played only 10 games over the last two season, including one game in 2018. Though Hargreaves appears in line for a key role in Tampa Bay's secondary, he will likely remain off the fantasy radar unless he can increase his interception rate of just one in 26 career games.

    • Rob Gronkowski NE TE
      Rob Gronkowski: Retirement becomes official
      4h ago

      The Patriots have officially placed Gronkowski on the team's reserve/retired list,NESN.com's Zack Cox reports.

      Gronkowski announced Sunday via Instagram that he intended to retire from the NFL as a player, and that was made official Tuesday. While replacing the star pass-catcher will be no easy task for the club, Gronkowski's departure frees up roughly $9 million in salary cap space for the Patriots, who will no doubt be looking at the draft as a path toward rebuilding their tight end corps. So soon after Gronkowski's announcement, it seems a tad silly to immediately speculate about a potential comeback, but it's worth noting that his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, suggested that it wouldn't shock him if Gronkowski contemplates a return to the field at some point down the road.

      Wizards' Trevor Ariza: Game-time call Tuesday
      48s ago

      Ariza (groin) will be a game-time decision Tuesday against the Lakers, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

      Ariza was previously listed as doubtful, so this seems to be a bit of an upgrade. He'll go through pregame warmups before determining if he can make his return after being out the past two games.

      Chandler (illness) is out Tuesday against the Wizards Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

      Chandler is too sick to participate Tuesday. Mike Muscala (ankle) and Moritz Wagner could replace some of Chandler's workload.

    • Lauri Markkanen CHI PF
      Bulls' Lauri Markkanen: Questionable to return
      17m ago

      Markkanen is considered questionable to return to Tuesday's tilt against the Raptors due to an illness.

      Markkanen provided ten points (2-10 FG, 1-3 3PT, 5-6 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks, and a steal across 16 minutes in the first half, but was replaced by Brandon Sampson to start the second. Given that the Raptors have a healthy lead, it would not be surprising to see the Bulls err on the side of caution with their young sharp-shooter. Still, expect an update on his status once the team provides more information.

      Lamb exited Tuesday's game against the Spurs with a right ankle sprain.

      Lamb is in enough discomfort to prevent him from finishing out Tuesday's game. There's a chance he'll end up on the injury report ahead of Friday's game against the Lakers.

      Beasley will not play in Tuesday's tilt against the Pistons for Personal reasons.

      Beasley's absence should free up some extra run for Gary Harris and Monte Morris. It is unclear if he will miss any additional time, so consider him day-to-day heading into Thursday's matchup with the Rockets.

      After getting Sunday's game off for rest, the veteran will make his return Wednesday. In March, he's averaging 4.3 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.1 steals in 21.6 minutes.

      Canadiens' Paul Byron: Exits after Weegar's revenge

      Byron (upper body) won't return to Tuesday's game against the Panthers, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

      Byron looked woozy after dropping the gloves with Florida's MacKenzie Weegar in the first period. Weegar got his revenge within the rules for a dirty hit Byron landed on him earlier this season, for which Byron was handed a three-game suspension. Expect further details on the nature of Byron's injury prior to the Canadiens' next game, which is a huge one Thursday in Columbus.

      Leipsic (lower body) remains out of the lineup Tuesday in Edmonton, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

      The Kings went back to a traditional 12-forward, six-defenseman lineup for this one, but Leipsic's not part of that equation. He'll hope to get back in there when Los Angeles wraps up its Western Canada trip Thursday in Vancouver.

      Sabres' Casey Mittelstadt: Benching kept at one game
      2h ago

      Mittelstadt, a healthy scratch for Monday's loss in New Jersey, will return to action Tuesday in Otttawa, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

      Mittelstadt is not the only cause of the Sabres' horrific struggles but he's still a young player struggling defensively (he hasn't posted a positive plus/minus rating in a game since Feb. 9). He was given a rest by coach Phil Housley with the aim to get his head cleared. With the slumping Sabres long out of the playoff chase, there's no reason to let Mittelstadt dwell on things any longer and instead the team will see if he can finish the season on a positive note. The second-year forward sits at 23 points in 70 games, even though he's spent much of the season in the top six. Vladimir Sobotka will take a turn in the press box for this one.

      Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Starting Tuesday in Columbus
      3h ago

      Greiss will start Tuesday's game in Columbus, Newsday's Andrew Gross reports.

      Greiss is looking to get back on track after allowing eight goals en route to a 1-2-0 record over his last three starts. He'll take on a desperate Columbus team that's trying to climb into one of the Eastern Conference's two wild-card spots. That desperation hasn't translated into results for the Blue Jackets, who are 1-2-1 in their last four games. The last meeting between these teams came back on March 11, when Greiss posted a 31-save shutout to claim a 2-0 win.

      Price will patrol the home crease Tuesday against the Panthers.

      Price is 3-0-1 in his past four starts, and he has a great opportunity to pick up another win against a Panthers team that's allowed seven goals to each of its last two opponents. This matchup could end up being a bit more high-scoring than Price's owners would like, however, as Florida ranks eighth in the league in road offense at 3.05 goals per game.
