Street (knee) is making his 2017 Cactus League debut Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Coming off a 6.45 ERA during (surprise) an injury-shortened 2016, Street is battling for the closer role with Cam Bedrosian (groin) and Andrew Bailey, among others. His body of work and name recognition may land him the job initially, but it's wise for fantasy players to remain skeptical, especially considering his health issues and the talent Bedrosian boasts when healthy.
Kyle Juszczyk's departure this offseason left Baltimore with a hole at fullback, but Taliaferro (6-0, 225) is a logical replacement at the position given his size and backfield experience. Still, a move to fullback negates much of Taliaferro's fantasy value as he's never shown to have the pass catching acumen that Juszczyk brought to the fullback spot. Hensley adds that Taliaferro will have to beat out Ricky Ortiz to lock up what will likely be the only fullback spot available on the roster.
Dull (knee) could return from the disabled list as soon as Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Despite this good news, Slusser also comments that Thursday is still the expected return date for the right-handed reliever. Dull is with the team already for Tuesday's game (although he's still inactive), so the timing of his activation is likely dependent on how he feels in the coming days as well as how heavily the bullpen is used Tuesday night.
Manager Bob Melvin said that Brugman (neck) might be available off the bench for Tuesday's contest with the Blue Jays, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The rookie outfielder was seen participating in drills on the field prior to the game's start, so it's certainly not out of the question. Brugman apparently woke up with some neck soreness, so even if he's unable to appear Tuesday night, a Wednesday return to action is fairly reasonable.
Johnson (knee) was waived/injured by the Panthers on Tuesday.
Johnson was just picked up as a free agent by Carolina in March, but his mediocre play combined with his knee injury are reasons he's headed for the waiver wire. During the 2016 season, Johnson racked up 20 receptions on 37 targets for 232 yards and zero touchdowns. If Johnson clears waivers, he'll end up on the Panthers' injured reserve.
