    Blue Jays' Riley Adams: Sent to Triple-A
    18m ago

    Adams was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday.

    The 24-year-old was recalled from the alternate site over the weekend with Alejandro Kirk (hip) going down with an injury, but Toronto has since opted to add Reese McGruire to the big-league roster. Adams did not see the field during his brief time with the team and is still looking to make his major-league debut.

  • Julian Merryweather TOR RP
    Blue Jays' Julian Merryweather: Transferred to 60-day IL
    20m ago

    Merryweather (oblique) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday

    The righty last pitched on April 13 and was initially placed on the 10-day IL, but it appears he'll need much more time to recover from the oblique strain and return to the Blue Jays roster. In just four appearances, Merryweather had established himself as a late-inning weapon, recording a hold and two saves. His eventual return will be a welcome sight for the bullpen that's already without Kirby Yates (elbow) for the season.

    Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Running remains limited
    35m ago

    Bellinger (lower leg) hasn't been cleared to run at full speed, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    The 25-year-old has progressed nicely through his hitting program and was expected to face live pitching last week, but his limited ability to run continues to cloud his return timeline. Bellinger should be considered week-to-week until he's cleared of any running restrictions.

    Dodgers' David Price: Throwing off mound
    42m ago

    Price (hamstring) has begun to throw off a mound, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    The lefty was placed on the injured list in late April and was expected to miss several weeks. Throwing off a mound is a promising sign for his return in the near future. Price pitched well before the injury, allowing one run in his last six innings after two bad appearances to start the season. Once healthy, Price may start games, with Dustin May (elbow) out for the season and Tony Gonsolin (shoulder) still at least three weeks from being available.

  • Jake Odorizzi HOU SP
    Astros' Jake Odorizzi: Rehab assignment now on tap
    1h ago

    Astros general manager James Click said Wednesday that Odorizzi (forearm) is "trending toward maybe needing a rehab start or two" before being activated from the 10-day injured list, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    After noting just a few days earlier that he believed Odorizzi would be ready to rejoin the Astros without requiring a rehab assignment beforehand, Click is now walking back those comments. Click reiterated that Odorizzi's forearm remains structurally sound, so the Astros are seemingly just taking some extra caution by plotting out a minor-league assignment for the veteran right-hander. Luis Garcia -- who is scheduled to start Wednesday against the Yankees -- looks like he'll be able to make at least one more turn through the rotation after that before Odorizzi rejoins the mix.

    Athletics' Mitch Moreland: Sitting versus southpaw
    1h ago

    Moreland is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The veteran slugger launched his fourth homer of the season Tuesday with a two-run shot during the second inning, but he'll head to the bench Wednesday with lefty Robbie Ray on the mound for Toronto. Sean Murphy will serve as the designated hitter while Austin Allen works behind the plate for the A's.

    Football Team's Landon Collins: Already running again
    7m ago

    Collins (Achilles) posted a video of himself running after having undergone surgery late October, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Collins is roughly six months removed from his Achilles' surgery, and it appears that his recovery is progressing on track. The 27-year-old is heading into the third season of his six-year, $84 million contract with Washington, and he remains on track for a starting role in the team's secondary once back to full health. Prior to going down to injury last season, Collins was on track for a third straight campaign with 100-plus stops.

  • Blaine Gabbert TB QB
    Buccaneers' Blaine Gabbert: Back as Brady's backup
    20m ago

    Gabbert re-signed with the Buccaneers on a one-year, $2.5 million contract Wednesday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    The Buccaneers continue their efforts to maintain an unchanging roster, bringing back Gabbert for another season as the No. 2 option behind Tom Brady. The 31-year-old's only action last season came in a Week 16 thrashing of the Lions, in the second half of which Brady went to the bench. Unless things take an unexpected turn for the defending Super Bowl champs during the 2021 campaign, Gabbert will once again be primed to only see limited action.

  • Brian Hill ATL RB
    Titans' Brian Hill: Gets deal with Titans
    1h ago

    Hill's representatives announced Wednesday that he has signed a contract with the Titans.

    Hill managed a respectable 4.7 yards per carry on 100 attempts behind a miserable Atlanta O-line last season, but there's no chance that he'll handle more than a reserve role behind Derrick Henry in Tennessee. He could provide competition against 2020 third-round pick Darrynton Evans for the No. 2 gig, but that job won't guarantee a consistent workload as long as Henry is on the field.

    1h ago

    The Jaguars cut Middleton on Wednesday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

    Middleton only handled five defensive snaps across 10 appearances with the Jaguars last season, as compared to 190 special-teams snaps. The veteran safety will look for a depth role elsewhere in the league.

    The Seahawks claimed Evans off waivers from the Jaguars on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Evans was cut by the Jaguars on Tuesday, but he didn't have to wait long to find his next opportunity. The former Central Florida standout , who went undrafted in 2020, is still looking for a chance to make his NFL debut.

    The Chiefs signed Finke to a contract Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Finke spent time on the 49ers' practice squad as a rookie last season, but he's still looking for a chance to make his NFL debut. He'll face stout competition for a depth role in Kansas City's receiving corps, which currently features 13 other names on the 90-man roster.

    Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Out Wednesday, likely out Thursday
    7m ago

    Hachimura (illness), who is out Wednesday against the Bucks, is expected to miss Thursday's game against the Raptors, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.

    Hachimura will likely miss both of the Wizards' back-to-back games Wednesday and Thursday as he deals with an undisclosed (non-COVID-19) illness. The forward has been an important part of his team's offense recently, so Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook will likely carry even more of the load offensively. Expect Davis Bertans and Chandler Hutchison to takeover Hachimura's playing time. Anthony Gill is drawing the start Wednesday.

    Gill will start Wednesday's contest against the Bucks, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    With Rui Hachimura (illness) out, Gill will start at power forward. In his previous two starts, Gill averaged 3.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 18.0 minutes.

    Celtics' Kemba Walker: Back in the lineup
    17m ago

    Walker will start Wednesday's game against Orlando, Celtics play-by-play man Sean Grande reports.

    As anticipated, Walker will be back in the mix after he went through a full practice Tuesday with no issues. The veteran point guard has missed the last four games with a strained left oblique, but he's not expected to face any limitations in his return.

    Kings' Harrison Barnes: Will miss Wednesday's game
    17m ago

    Barnes (groin) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Pacers, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.

    Barnes will miss his fifth consecutive game Wednesday as he deals with an adductor injury. With injuries piling up for the Kings, expect Maurice Harkless and Justin James to gain plenty of additional minutes. Marvin Bagley will likely take Barnes' spot in the starting lineup, as has been the case in each of the last two games.

    King (recently signed) is available to make his debut Wednesday against the Pacers, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    King signed a two-way deal at the end of April, and he joined the team Tuesday night. Coach Luke Walton may not opt to use the forward, but he'll be available if needed.

  • Robert Williams III BOS C
    Celtics' Robert Williams: Starting Wednesday with no Thompson
    19m ago

    Williams will start Wednesday's game against Orlando, Celtics play-by-play man Sean Grande reports.

    With Tristan Thompson (pectoral) sidelined, the Celtics will make the obvious pivot and go with Williams at center. It's been a breakout third season for Williams, though it was briefly derailed last month when he missed a string of seven games due to a sore knee. Since returning against Charlotte on April 28, Williams has averaged 6.3 point, 7.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.7 blocks in 21.3 minutes.

  • Sebastian Aho NYI D
    Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Healthy scratch once again
    1m ago

    Aho has now been a healthy scratch or 22 straight games or the Islanders.

    Aho did get a chance to play when Noah Dobson was on the injured list, but he was quickly surpassed by Thomas Hickey. At the trade deadline, the Islanders added Braydon Coburn, which pushed Aho further down the depth chart. For the most part, the Islanders are locked into their playoff position, so perhaps Aho gets a chance to play for a rested regular in the final three games, but his next meaningful action isn't likely to come until next season.

    Byron (lower body) isn't suiting up in Wednesday's contest against Ottawa.

    Byron is set to miss his seventh consecutive contest with the lower-body issue, as the team will also be without Tomas Tatar (lower body) for the contest. Byron has been decent this season, recording 14 points across 44 games to this point. The Canadiens will continue to roll with their usual lineup, keeping rookie Cole Caufield in the lineup.

    Gudbranson (undisclosed) is not on the ice for warmups ahead of Wednesday's matchup with Columbus and will not play, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    With a single point in eight contests with his new club -- and just three in 36 with Ottawa prior to joining Nashville -- Gudbranson doesn't do much to move the fantasy needle on a regular basis. His next chance to return will come Friday against the visiting Hurricanes.

    Senators' Anton Forsberg: Patrolling crease Wednesday
    10m ago

    Forsberg (lower body) will start between the pipes for Wednesday's home contest against Toronto, Gord Wilson of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Forsberg is set to enjoy a nice Wednesday, as he'll return to the lineup coming off injury and signing a new one-year contract extension. The 28-year-old has just six appearances this season, as he's gone 2-3-1 along with a 3.18 GAA and .910 save percentage over that span. Forsberg will draw a tough matchup against a Maple Leafs offense that sits fifth in the league in goals per game this season (3.33).

    This marks the third straight missed game for Arvidsson, who's only managed a single point in his last seven contests. It's unclear if he'll be able to return Saturday or Monday against visiting Carolina.

    Predators' Nick Cousins: Not playing Wednesday

    Cousins (undisclosed) is not on the ice for pregame warmups and will not play Wednesday against Columbus, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    Cousins was actually on a modest four-game, seven-point streak heading into this one. Nonetheless, he's set to miss his second game of the season, so DFS players will need to look elsewhere for sneaky fantasy value Wednesday.
