Justin Dunn SEA RP
Mariners' Justin Dunn: Whiffs six2h ago
Dunn allowed one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out six across four innings of work Thursday.
Dunn continued to generate whiffs at a strong rate and has 13 strikeouts in nine innings this spring. However, as has been the case throughout his minor-league career, Dunn has struggled with surrendering free passes -- he's now issued five during the exhibition season. Already optioned to minor-league camp, Dunn could get a small sample of big-league work later in the season if he impresses throughout the campaign.
Jung Ho Kang PIT 3B
Pirates' Jung Ho Kang: Walk-off grand slam4h ago
Kang went 2-for-4 with a walk-off grand slam, double and strikeout Thursday against Orioles.
Kang continued his power surge this spring, bashing his sixth home run in 36 at-bats. Recently named the starting third baseman for the Pirates, Kang has also posted an alarming strikeout rate, whiffing 17 times in his exhibition sample.
Ryan Zimmerman WAS 3B
Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Homers to opposite field4h ago
Zimmerman went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Thursday against the Cardinals.
Zimmerman homered off Chris Beck, so it wasn't the stiffest of competition. It was his second home run of the spring, but perhaps most importantly, there has been no news of injury flareups for the often sidelined Zimmerman. Assuming he remains healthy, Zimmerman should serve as the team's primary first baseman in the regular season and is projected to slot into the fifth spot in the lineup.
Darwinzon Hernandez BOS RP
Red Sox's Darwinzon Hernandez: Issues three free passes4h ago
Hernandez turned in a scoreless inning of work but walked three batters on Thursday.
Hernandez is fighting for one of the three remaining bullpen sports with the big league club. While he has 12 strikeouts in 11 innings of work this spring, he has also issued eight free passes. Hernandez is just 22-years-old and has pitched only five games above Single-A, so it's likely the team will opt to give him more time to develop in the minors.
Tyler Thornburg BOS SP
Red Sox's Tyler Thornburg: Struggles with control4h ago
Thornburg didn't allow an earned run but walked three batters in one inning of work Thursday.
Thornburg has struggled for much of the spring, as indicated by his 9.0 ERA and 2.8 WHIP. He appeared to be trending in the right direction -- he had one walk in a scoreless outing in his last appearance -- but failed to build on that Thursday. While his rocky spring puts him on the roster bubble, he is out of options and may break camp with the team as a result.
Andrew Miller STL RP
Cardinals' Andrew Miller: Another troubled outing4h ago
Miller hit two batters and also issued a walk before being pulled after recording just two outs Thursday.
This marks the third time this spring that Miller has failed to complete an inning of work. As a result, he has a bloated 11.81 ERA and 1.88 WHIP across 5.1 innings. Given his track record and previous slow spring starts, there is no need to panic, though his struggles are still worth noting.
Ricardo Allen ATL FS
Falcons' Ricardo Allen: Taking strides in recovery3h ago
Allen (Achilles) returned to the practice field Thursday for speed and agility drills, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Allen suffered a torn Achilles during Atlanta's Week 3 loss to New Orleans, forcing a premature conclusion to his fifth pro campaign, and spelling disaster for a Falcons' secondary that had already seen Keanu Neal (knee) go down for the year during the season opener. The 27-year-old Allen racked up 90 tackles and two interceptions during the magical Super Bowl run of 2016, but with him inactive for 13 games in 2018 the defense limped to a 27th-place finish against the pass. The front office has already jettisoned a couple of defensive backs from the 2018 cast -- including Robert Alford and Brian Poole -- but with the incipient return of Allen and Neal to the active lineup, plus a potential addition or two to the secondary via the draft, Atlanta remains optimistic that a vast improvement could be in store for this unit.
Curtis Riley NYG FS
Curtis Riley: Visits Bengals8h ago
Riley visited with the Bengals on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Some teams have shown interest in Riley, though the young safety has been weighing all of his options before deciding on a final free agency destination. He's coming off a 2018 season that saw him record 75 tackles and four interceptions while starting all 16 games for the Giants. If he does sign with the Bengals he'll likely slot in as one of the team's starting safeties.
Stephen Gostkowski NE K
Stephen Gostkowski: Progressing on new contract8h ago
The Patriots and Gostkowski are making progress with negotiations on a new contract, Tom E. Curran of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Despite finishing in the top 10 in points scored 11 times in his 13 seasons, Gostkowski wasn't extended the franchise tag by the deadline like he was in 2015. The Patriots' decision left him free to explore all options once the new league year started March 13, but it appears as if he'll stick with the only organization he's ever known.
Bryan Cox CAR DE
Panthers' Bryan Cox: Re-signs with Panthers8h ago
Cox signed a contract with the Panthers on Thursday.
Cox has served as a backup defensive lineman for the Panthers through his first-two seasons, totaling 16 tackles and a fumble recovery across 18 games in that span. He'll figure to operate as a depth lineman and special teams player once again in 2019.
Marcus Sherels MIN DB
Saints' Marcus Sherels: Signs with Saints8h ago
Sherels signed a one-year contract with the Saints on Thursday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Sherels had spent his entire nine-year career with the Vikings prior to signing with the Saints. A backup for most of his career, he'll figure to provide the Saints secondary depth while also contributing on special teams.
Mike Hull MIA LB
Dolphins' Mike Hull: Re-signs with Miami9h ago
Hull signed a contract with the Dolphins on Thursday, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Hull joined the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent in 2015 and has been a backup linebacker for the team ever since. He missed the first eight games of 2018 due to a knee injury and was only able to record nine tackles (seven solo) in eight contests once he returned. He'll likely be a depth linebacker and special teams player once again in 2019.
Sam Dekker WAS SF
Wizards' Sam Dekker: Doesn't play in Thursday's loss2h ago
Dekker (DNP-Coach's Decision) did not see the court in Thursday's 113-108 loss to the Nuggets.
Dekker has appeared in just two of of the last five game while combining for only one point (0-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two dimes, and one board across 18 minutes of action. The 24-year-old forward had earned double-digit minutes in five straight games prior to this recent stretch. However, unless he suddenly starts earning ample minutes again he's unlikely to provide much value during the last nine games of 2018-19.
Wesley Johnson WAS SF
Wizards' Wesley Johnson: Plays seven minutes in loss2h ago
Johnson managed three points (0-1 FG, 3-3 FT) and one rebound in seven minutes during Thursday's 113-108 loss to the Nuggets.
Johnson has appeared in only four games thus far in March and has been limited to single-digit minutes in each of them. As the regular season winds down and the Wizards fall out of playoff contention, Johnson is unlikely to receive many minutes across the last nine games of 2018-19.
Tomas Satoransky WAS SG
Wizards' Tomas Satoransky: Double-double in Thursday's loss2h ago
Satoransky amassed 16 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 assists, four rebounds, and one steal in 34 minutes during Thursday's 113-108 loss to the Nuggets.
Satoransky was extremely efficient as a scorer, finishing with over twice as many points as field goal attempts. Moreover, he produced his seventh double-double of the campaign, this after logging just one across his first two seasons (130 games). With just nine games remaining in the regular season and the team's playoff hopes dwindling, Satoransky will nevertheless look to close out the campaign on a positive note.
Thomas Bryant WAS C
Wizards' Thomas Bryant: Scores 22 points in Thursday's loss2h ago
Bryant posted 22 points (9-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, and two blocks in 35 minutes during Thursday's 113-108 loss to the Nuggets.
Bryant drew the start and delivered an impressive stat line, finishing with twice as many points as field goal attempts while producing on the defensive end as well. Given the fact that the Wizards are close to being eliminated from playoff contention, Bryant and the rest of the younger players could be in line to see more consistent minutes across the final nine games of 2018-19.
Gary Harris DEN SG
Nuggets' Gary Harris: Scores 15 points in Thursday's win2h ago
Harris had 15 points (6-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds, two steals, and one assist in 29 minutes during Thursday's 113-108 win over the Wizards.
Harris has reached double figures in scoring in three straight games (and four of the last five). However, he has made at least 50 percent of his field goal attempts only once during this recent stretch, and at this point he's not contributing enough in the other categories to warrant consideration outside of deeper formats.
Torrey Craig DEN SF
Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Scores 15 points in Thursday's win2h ago
Craig contributed 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt), four assists, one rebound, one steal, and one block in 25 minutes during Thursday's 113-108 win over the Wizards.
Craig matched his career high in assists. Moreover, he has scored in double figures in consecutive contests, and in three of his last four appearances. His ability to defend along the wing as well as knock down shots from the perimeter appears to be helping him stay relevant despite coach Michael Malone's recent decision to stick with a shorter rotation. With that being said, Craig is best reserved for use in deeper leagues.
Marc-Edouard Vlasic SJ D
Sharks' Marc-Edouard Vlasic: Delivers assist20m ago
Vlasic registered an assist in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Kings.
He saw his four-game point streak snap in Monday's 7-3 loss to the Golden Knights, but it didn't take Vlasic long to get back on the scoresheet. He has a goal and seven helpers in his last 10 games, giving him 22 points in 64 games. Vlasic hasn't produced fewer than 23 points in a season since the 2012-13 lockout, and given his recent hot streak, he should keep that statement true this year as well.
Brent Burns SJ D
Sharks' Brent Burns: Assists in three straight games24m ago
Burns collected a helper, three hits and three shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Kings.
The helper allowed Burns to match his career high of 76 points, doing so in 74 contests this year. When he set it in 2016-17, it came with 29 goals and 47 assists, but this year's production has seen him post 13 scores and 63 apples. With up to eight more games for Burns, it's a near-lock he's got a new personal best by season's end, and it's a decent chance that number is north of 80.
Joonas Donskoi SJ RW
Sharks' Joonas Donskoi: Supplies assist27m ago
Donskoi registered an assist in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Kings.
Donskoi helped to set up Barclay Goodrow's equalizer in the first period, giving him five assists in nine games in March. He's collected 35 points in 73 games this season, just one point shy of the 36 he had in his rookie season that stands as his career high -- for now.
Tomas Hertl SJ C
Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Ends mini-slump with goal32m ago
Hertl scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Kings.
Hertl's marker put the Sharks up 2-1 in the second period, but three third-period goals by the Kings would overpower the Czech forward's work. Hertl has 32 goals and 64 points in 69 games this season, finally having the breakout year expected of the first-round pick from 2012.
Barclay Goodrow SJ C
Sharks' Barclay Goodrow: Finds twine in loss36m ago
Goodrow netted his seventh goal of the season in a 4-2 loss to the Kings on Thursday.
Goodrow has collected three points in 10 games in March, giving him 16 points in 74 contests this season. He does have 118 hits after adding two Thursday, but other than the physicality, he's likely not worth a look in most fantasy formats.
Martin Jones SJ G
Sharks' Martin Jones: Misery continues39m ago
Jones yielded three goals on 34 shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Kings.
Jones has three losses in his last four starts, and the one game he didn't take the loss was one where he was pulled. Frustratingly, he was unable to hold onto a 2-1 lead the Sharks carried into the third period. Jones dropped to 34-16-5 with a 2.91 GAA and an .898 save percentage. Aaron Dell may be in line for Friday's start in Anaheim.
