Carlos Correa MIN SS
Twins' Carlos Correa: Scores twice in return13m ago
Correa went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, two runs scored and an RBI on Wednesday against the Athletics.
Correa returned from the injured list after recovering from a finger injury that cost him nearly two weeks. He singled and scored his first time at the plate and followed that up with an RBI double in the fourth frame. Correa has lacked power early on in the campaign, though the recent uptick in offense around the league bodes well for his potential to experience improved results.
Luis Barrera OAK LF
Athletics' Luis Barrera: Playing time ticking up30m ago
Barrera went 3-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI on Wednesday against the Twins.
Barrera has started four of the last five games in a corner outfield spot. Chad Pinder has been the primary playing time loser, though Cristian Pache sat Wednesday. Barrera turned in his second multi-hit performance of the season, tallying three singles while scoring a run in the seventh inning and driving in a run in the eighth. Barrera has had some success early on, maintaining a .348/.407/.478 line while stealing a base and maintaining an 11.1 percent strikeout rate across 27 plate appearances.
Luis Gil NYY SP
Yankees' Luis Gil: Exits with arm injury34m ago
Gil was removed from his start with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday after gesturing to his right elbow, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports.
The 24-year-old was making his first start back with the RailRiders after a brief stint with the Yankees, but his return outing was cut short by the injury. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but any arm issue is a worrying sign for Gil, who's struggled to a 9.53 ERA at Triple-A this year.
Josh Winder MIN RP
Twins' Josh Winder: Role in flux1h ago
Winder isn't expected to start against the Royals this weekend, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
The right-hander surprisingly covered 3.2 frames as a long reliever Tuesday, and he won't be rejoining Minnesota's starting rotation this weekend, with Devin Smeltzer, Joe Ryan and Bailey Ober (groin) expected to take the mound. Winder had a 1.61 ERA over his first five outings but has given up nine runs (eight earned) over seven frames in his last two appearances, and it appears he may now be ticketed for bullpen work.
Devin Smeltzer MIN SP
Twins' Devin Smeltzer: Starting again Friday1h ago
Smeltzer is scheduled to start Friday's game against the Royals, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
The 26-year-old was called up for a spot start last Saturday and will receive another turn through the rotation after giving up one run on three hits with two strikeouts and two walks over five innings. Smeltzer and Josh Winder are in competition for the No. 6 spot in the rotation -- assuming the Twins continue to use six starters -- with Chris Paddack (elbow) out for the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery Wednesday.
Ashton Goudeau COL RP
Rockies' Ashton Goudeau: Sent to minors1h ago
Goudeau was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque after Wednesday's win over the Giants, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Goudeau has a 7.07 ERA and has given up at least one run in each of his past six appearances, leading to the demotion. Kris Bryant (back) is expected to be activated from the injured list ahead of Friday's game against the Mets to fill out the Rockies' 26-man roster.
Bisi Johnson MIN WR
Vikings' Bisi Johnson: Returns to practice4h ago
Johnson (knee) was a full participant in Tuesday's OTA practice, Matthew Collier of SI.com reports.
Johnson suffered a torn ACL in training camp last July and missed the entire 2021 season. He worked as the No. 3 receiver at times in 2020 before sliding down the depth chart late in that season. He'll be in the mix for the No. 4 receiver role in training camp this summer if he's in fact back to full strength.
Chris Streveler MIA QB
Chris Streveler: Let go by Miami5h ago
Miami waived Streveler on Wednesday.
Streveler signed with Miami in February after a two-year stint in Arizona. He was expected to compete for a backup job behind Tua Tagovailoa, but the Dolphins have since signed Teddy Bridgewater and drafted Skylar Thompson, which rendered Streveler expendable.
Morgan Fox LAC DE
Chargers' Morgan Fox: Lands deal with Chargers6h ago
Fox agreed to a contract with the Chargers on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
Fox will reunite with Chargers head coach Brandon Staley, who was the defensive coordinator for the Rams in 2020 when Fox recorded a career-high six sacks. The defensive end struggled in his lone season in Carolina in 2021, but he'll look to bounce back while playing in a more familiar scheme in 2022.
Parris Campbell IND WR
Colts' Parris Campbell: Facing zero limitations7h ago
Campbell (foot) said Wednesday that he feels great and hasn't had any physical limitations during the offseason, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.
Campbell underwent foot surgery in the middle of last season and returned to play eight snaps in the Colts' forgettable Week 18 loss to the Jaguars. However, the wideout revealed Wednesday that he played in that contest with a plate and screws in his foot, which were removed two weeks after the season concluded, per Zak Keefer of The Athletic. Campbell has had three consecutive injury-plagued campaigns to start his career, and the Colts added Alec Pierce in the draft, so it's possible the Ohio State product could be facing an uphill battle to make Indianapolis' initial 53-man roster. However, Campbell is only due $1.1 million next season and is finally healthy, so the Colts won't take on much risk by rostering him with the hopes that he makes good on his potential in his fourth NFL season.
Brian Lewerke NYG QB
Brian Lewerke: Waived by Big Blue8h ago
New York waived Lewerke on Wednesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.
Lewerke spent the majority of last season on the Giants' practice squad and earned a futures deal at the end of the campaign. His dismissal leaves Davis Webb as the No. 3 quarterback on the depth chart behind Daniel Jones and Tyrod Taylor.
Khalil Dorsey NYG DB
Giants' Khalil Dorsey: Signs deal with Big Blue10h ago
Dorsey agreed to a contract with the Giants on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
Dorsey didn't appear in a game during the 2021 campaign due to an undisclosed injury and only played in six contests in 2020 due to a shoulder issue. However, the Northern Arizona product appears to be healthy and will look to earn a spot on the Giants' roster coming out of training camp.
Max Strus MIA SG
Heat's Max Strus: Questionable for Game 23h ago
Strus (hamstring) is questionable for Thursday's Game 2 against Boston.
Strus continues to be listed as questionable due to a right hamstring strain, but he should be able to play once again Thursday. He logged 11 points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 30 minutes during Tuesday's Game 1 win.
Kyle Lowry MIA PG
Heat's Kyle Lowry: Remains out for Game 24h ago
Lowry (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's Game 2 against the Celtics.
Lowry has dealt with a sore left hamstring for most of the playoffs, and he'll be forced to miss a fourth consecutive game. Gabe Vincent (hamstring) should draw another start for Miami if he's available for Game 2, while Lowry's next chance to return will be Saturday.
Gabe Vincent MIA PG
Heat's Gabe Vincent: Back on injury report4h ago
Vincent (hamstring) is questionable for Thursday's Game 2 against Boston.
As has been the case for the entire postseason, Vincent remains on the injury report despite no tangible evidence that he's actually injured. Vincent started in place of Kyle Lowry (hamstring) in Game 1 and finished with 17 points, two rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes. With Lowry already ruled out for Game 2, Vincent should be in line for another start.
Sam Hauser BOS SF
Celtics' Sam Hauser: Out again Thursday4h ago
Hauser (shoulder) is out for Thursday's Game 2 against the Heat.
Hauser continues to deal with a right shoulder instability episode. Even when healthy, it would be surprising to see him take the floor in the postseason.
Marcus Smart BOS PG
Celtics' Marcus Smart: Probable for Game 24h ago
Smart (foot) is probable for Thursday's Game 2 against the Heat, Brian Robb of The Springfield Republican reports.
Smart was held out of Game 1 due to a right foot sprain, with the Celtics losing 118-107. Al Horford (COVID-19), who was out for Game 1, is expected to be sidelined for Game 2 as well, but Boston should at least get back Smart. In the playoffs, the guard has averaged 15.0 points, 6.2 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 36.5 minutes. It remains to be seen if Smart will be on a minutes limit in his return. That information could arrive closer to tipoff.
Al Horford BOS PF
Celtics' Al Horford: 'Highly unlikely' to play in Game 28h ago
Horford (COVID-19 protocols) is "highly unlikely" to play in Thursday's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports. He is officially doubtful.
Haynes relays that there's a "minuscule" chance the veteran could be cleared for Game 2, so Boston is anticipating being without its starting forward for a second consecutive game. Luckily, Robert Williams returned from a four-game absence due to knee soreness and looked great in Game 1, so he -- along with Grant Williams -- will likely once again be asked to play heavy minutes in Horford's expected absence.
Justus Annunen COL G
Avalanche's Justus Annunen: Sent down again5m ago
Annunen was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Wednesday, per CapFriendly.
The Avalanche continue to juggle Annunen back and forth to the AHL. He's no more than their No. 3 goalie, so he's not expected to be a factor during their second-round playoff series versus the Blues.
Colton Sceviour EDM C
Oilers' Colton Sceviour: Up with big club7m ago
Sceviour was called up from AHL Bakersfield on Wednesday, per CapFriendly.
Sceviour wasn't among the Oilers' initial Black Aces, but he'll now serve as extra depth in the postseason. It's unlikely the 33-year-old will see much, if any, playing time.
Igor Shesterkin NYR G
Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: In goal Wednesday3h ago
Shesterkin will guard the road goal in Game 1 of the Rangers' second-round series versus the Hurricanes on Wednesday, Mollie Walker of The New York Post reports.
Shesterkin struggled a bit in the first round, going 4-2 with a 3.66 GAA and a .910 save percentage versus the Penguins. The Hurricanes present a tougher challenge, as they averaged 3.38 goals per game in the regular season, ninth-best in the NHL. Shesterkin will need to improve to keep the Rangers competitive in the second round.
Brayden Point TB C
Lightning's Brayden Point: Unavailable for Game 27h ago
Point (leg) won't play in Thursday's Game 2 versus Florida, Tom Gulitti of NHL.come reports.
Point will miss a second straight contest with his leg injury, but he's still considered day-to-day, so he'll presumably be ready to return at some point during Tampa Bay's second-round matchup with the Panthers. The 26-year-old forward has picked up two goals and four points through seven games this postseason.
Erik Cernak TB D
Lightning's Erik Cernak: Set to play Thursday7h ago
Cernak (undisclosed) is slated to play in Game 2 versus the Panthers on Thursday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
Cernak was forced to leave Game 1 due to his undisclosed injury after just 10:25 of ice time. Considering the blueliner has just one point in his last 13 contests, few fantasy players were likely impacted by his absence or his expected return for Game 2.
Juuso Valimaki CGY D
Flames' Juuso Valimaki: Ascends to top level9h ago
Valimaki was promoted from AHL Stockton on Wednesday.
Although he's been promoted, Valimaki isn't expected to be in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 1 versus Edmonton. The 23-year-old defender picked up two assists through nine top-level appearances during the regular season.
