  • Luis Garcia SD RP
    Padres' Luis Garcia: Struggling with walks this spring
    15m ago

    Garcia has a 5:5 K:BB through five innings in Cactus League play, and he has allowed two runs, one of which came on a home run.

    Garcia also pitched for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic, allowing one run and posting a 2:1 K:BB in 2.1 frames. The veteran reliever has struggled with his control at times in his career, though he's posted the best walk rates of his career in the past two campaigns. Garcia is expected to be one of the Padres' top setup men this season, especially with Robert Suarez (arm) and Drew Pomeranz (elbow) likely to begin the campaign on the injured list. He picked up a career-high 20 holds last season and could be impactful in fantasy leagues that count that statistic in 2023.

  • JP Sears OAK RP
    Athletics' JP Sears: Gets roster spot, role undecided
    24m ago

    Sears has made the Athletics' Opening Day roster, but whether he'll serve as a starter or reliever is yet to be clarified, Ben Ross of reports.

    Both Sears and Adam Oller (illness) will open the regular season with the big club after each garnered experience as starters and relievers during their rookie 2022 campaigns. If the decision on which of the two will open in the rotation would be based solely on last season's numbers, Sears would be the clear-cut choice -- his 6-3 record and 3.86 ERA was exponentially better than Oller's respective 2-8 and 6.30 figures in those categories. However, Sears was shakier this spring, posting an 0-1 mark and 5.19 ERA in 17.1 Cactus League frames. The revelation on who'll get the starting call may not come for several days, as the first turn in the rotation that would go to either Sears or Oller isn't slated to come until Tuesday, April 4.

  • Jose Suarez LAA SP
    Angels' Jose Suarez: Expected to be No. 5 starter
    25m ago

    Suarez is lined up to start the Angels' fifth game of the season, which will take place April 4 in Seattle, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Suarez was essentially a lock for a starting role coming into spring training after posting a 3.96 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over 22 games (20 starts last season). He has been fine in three Cactus League starts, allowing five runs (four earned) and posting a 6:3 K:BB over 8.2 innings. Suarez doesn't have the strikeout numbers or history of consistency to be an exciting option in fantasy, but he can give managers in deeper leagues decent ratios at a reasonable cost.

  • Donovan Solano MIN 1B
    Twins' Donovan Solano: Set to make roster
    2h ago

    Solano started at DH and went 1-for-4 with a home run in Monday's spring training win over Pittsburgh. He's hitting .158 with a .509 OPS this spring.

    Despite his underwhelming hitting stats this spring, Solano is set to make the roster as a utility infielder. He could get some extra playing time in April with both Jorge Polanco and Alex Kirilloff set to begin the season on the injured list. However, he's likely the secondary option off the bench as both Kyle Farmer and Nick Gordon can move around the infield as well. Solano did play some first base this spring and could get a few starts there as well.

  • Jose Miranda MIN 1B
    Twins' Jose Miranda: Ready to play third base
    2h ago

    Miranda (shoulder) is expected to start at third base on Opening Day, reports. He started at third base in Monday's spring training win over Pittsburgh and went 3-for-4 with two doubles. He's hitting .325 with five home runs and a 1.225 OPS this spring.

    Miranda was limited to DH and first base for most of spring training due to a sore throwing shoulder. He's started the past two spring games at third base and looks set for everyday duty once the regular season begins. His sore shoulder wasn't an issue at the plate as Miranda had a tremendous spring with five home runs.

  • Chasen Shreve DET RP
    Tigers' Chasen Shreve: Looks set to make team
    5h ago

    Shreve has a clearer path to an Opening Day bullpen spot with the Tigers reassigning Jace Fry, Trevor Rosenthal and Matt Wisler to minor-league camp Monday

    Shreve has pitched well this spring with a 2.25 ERA and 10 strikeouts across eight Grapefruit League innings. It looks like that will help the lefty make the team with the Tigers thinning out their options Monday. Shreve figures to mostly be used situationally against left-handed hitters and likely won't have a ton of fantasy appeal, at least in the early going.

  • Von Miller BUF OLB
    Bills' Von Miller: On road to full recovery
    1h ago

    Coach Sean McDermott said Monday that Miller, who suffered an ACL injury in Week 12 last season, is on schedule with his recovery, Grace Heidinger of the Bills' official site reports.

    Said McDermott, "And then you talk about the piece that he's working on, which is getting healthy to play and play well on the field. That's a whole other piece and to this point, it sounds like he's on schedule." Miller had 8.0 sacks in just 11 games last season -- not bad at all for a 33-year-old (now 34) -- so the Bills are certainly looking forward to having him back to lead the pass rush once again in what will be his second campaign with the team.

  • Irv Smith MIN TE
    Bengals' Irv Smith: Latches on with Bengals
    3h ago

    Smith signed a one-year contract with Cincinnati on Monday, Peter Schrager of Fox Sports reports.

    Smith appeared in eight games a season ago with Minnesota and finished with 25 catches for 182 yards and a pair of scores. He should have a chance to make an immediate impact with the Bengals if he can stay healthy, as he'll join the likes of Devin Asiasi, Tanner Hudson and Nick Bowers in the tight end room.

  • DeAndre Hopkins ARI WR
    Cardinals' DeAndre Hopkins: Has permission to seek trade
    8h ago

    The Cardinals have granted permission to Hopkins' (knee) representatives to discuss trades with other teams, Albert Breer of reports.

    After missing just two games in the first eight years of his career, Hopkins has been absent for 15 games the past two seasons due to a combination of injuries and a suspension. He's still produced when on the field, though, totaling 106 catches (on 160 targets) for 1,289 yards and 11 touchdowns in 19 appearances during that span. Despite Breer's report, new coach Jonathan Gannon told Steve Wyche of NFL Network at the Annual League Meeting on Sunday that he's "operating that he's a Cardinal right now" when asked about Hopkins. Hopkins' situation may continue to linger due to his 2023 base salary of $19.45 million, his age (he turns 31 in June) and his recent inability to be available to Arizona's offense.

  • Marquise Copeland LAR DT
    Rams' Marquise Copeland: Re-signs with Rams
    10h ago

    The Rams re-signed Copeland on Monday, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Copeland is coming off of the best season of his career, logging 31 tackles (16 solo) and one sack in 15 games. The 2019 undrafted free agent should have ample opportunity to build off of his production from last year and compete for playing time next season as the Rams currently lack depth at defensive end behind Aaron Donald.

    Cowboys' Isaac Alarcon: Switching to defense
    10h ago

    Alarcon will play on the defensive line this season, Todd Archer of reports.

    The product of the NFL's International Pathway Program has spent the last three seasons with the Cowboys as an offensive lineman, but the team apparently feels Alarcon will have a better chance of seeing action during the regular season on the other side of the ball.

  • Devin Duvernay BAL WR
    Ravens' Devin Duvernay: Likely sticking with Baltimore
    11h ago

    Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he expects Duvernay (foot) to be with the team for 2023, Jonas Shaffer of the Baltimore Banner reports.

    There's been talk of Duvernay becoming a cap casualty after a second Pro Bowl nod activated a contract escalator that pushes his salary to a non-guaranteed $4.3 million for the fourth and final season of his rookie contract. It's a reasonable number, and arguably even a bargain, given that he's been a top-notch return man on both punts and kickoffs while also manning the slot on offense. There is some question about his health this offseason after Duvernay suffered a broken fifth metatarsal in his right foot during a Dec. 20 practice, though he should have enough time to recover before training camp even if he misses OTAs and minicamp. He finished 2022 with career highs in every major receiving stat, including YPR and YPT, yet still averaged only 3.5 targets per game and thus offered little in the way of fantasy value outside of return-yardage leagues.

  • Nikola Jokic DEN C
    Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Cruises to triple-double
    5m ago

    Jokic provided 25 points (8-11 FG, 9-11 FT), 17 rebounds, 12 assists and two blocks in 35 minutes during Monday's 116-111 victory over Philadelphia.

    Jokic dominated in Monday's victory, helping the Nuggets to a relatively easy victory. With Joel Embiid (calf) on the sideline, Jokic obviously took the honors in what was viewed as a matchup of the two top MVP candidates. Denver now sits 3.5 games clear at the top of the Western Conference, meaning there is a chance Jokic himself is given a night or two of rest before the end of the regular season.

  • Bruce Brown DEN SF
    Nuggets' Bruce Brown: Shines in favorable matchup
    8m ago

    Brown provided 18 points (5-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds, five assists and one steal across 29 minutes during Monday's 116-111 win over the 76ers.

    Brown had arguably his best game in more than a month, taking advantage of what was a favorable matchup. Despite being a top 125 player this season, Brown has struggled of late, barely inside the top 170 over the past month. With that said, his minutes continue to hover around 25 on most nights, making him a 12-team option, albeit one with an element of risk.

  • Montrezl Harrell PHI C
    76ers' Montrezl Harrell: Woeful season continues
    13m ago

    Harrell ended Monday's 116-111 loss to Denver with three points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and two rebounds across six minutes.

    Harrell made it onto the court for just the third time in the past month, continuing what has been a rapid fall from grace. Barely a top 350 player for the season, Harrell's days of being fantasy relevant are well and truly behind him. It's hard to envisage a situation where he would ever play more than 15 minutes, making him a non-factor in basically every format moving forward.

  • Georges Niang PHI PF
    76ers' Georges Niang: Drops two triples in loss
    15m ago

    Niang contributed eight points (3-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt) and four rebounds over 23 minutes during Monday's 116-111 loss to the Nuggets.

    Niang, along with a host of his teammates, saw additional run in the loss. The 76ers were done and dusted by the fourth quarter, affording the fringe players to close the game. Niang is a player who can get hot from the perimeter but when the team is healthy, his role is typically under 20 minutes per night, nowhere near enough to produce 12-team value.

  • Dewayne Dedmon PHI C
    76ers' Dewayne Dedmon: Starts Monday, for some reason
    19m ago

    Dedmon registered zero points (0-2 FG), two rebounds, one assist and two blocks across 10 minutes during Monday's 116-111 loss to the Nuggets.

    Dedmon moved into the starting lineup Monday, replacing Joel Embiid who was ruled out due to a calf injury. Despite having played in only five total games since arriving in Philadelphia, Doc Rivers, in all his wisdom, opted to go with the veteran over Paul Reed. For anyone keeping score, Reed was far more productive in his 17 minutes, ending with 17 points on 7-of-7 shooting, adding nine rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block. If Embiid does happen to miss more time, do yourself a favor and don't add Dedmon.

  • Talen Horton-Tucker UTA SF
    Jazz's Talen Horton-Tucker: Flirts ith triple-double in loss
    1h ago

    Horton-Tucker closed Monday's 117-103 loss to the Suns with 16 points (7-18 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 0-4 FT), eight rebounds, eight assists and one steal across 35 minutes.

    Horton-Tucker closed to within two rebounds and two assists of a triple-double Monday, a strong start to the week for anyone holding him in standard formats. Unfortunately, his percentages remain an issue, as does his tendency to turn the ball over. If you can look beyond his glaring flaws, he should remain a must-roster player ROS.

    Coyotes' Matias Maccelli: Joins 10-goal club
    5m ago

    Maccelli scored a pair of goals on five shots and went plus-2 in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Oilers.

    Maccelli has multiple shots in consecutive games for the first time since November, and it's paying off. He's scored three goals over his last two outings, and six of his 10 tallies this season have come in March. It's a sign of the 22-year-old's growing comfort with the pace of NHL play. He's up to 43 points, 53 shots on net, 16 PIM and a plus-5 rating through 57 appearances this season.

    Coyotes' Karel Vejmelka: Surrenders five goals in loss
    8m ago

    Vejmelka gave up five goals on 29 shots in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Oilers.

    The Coyotes battled back from a two-goal deficit in the third period, but Ryan Nugent-Hopkins tallied on the power play with 7:55 left to close out the scoring. Vejmelka has hit a skid with 10 goals allowed on 84 shots over his last three games, all losses. The 26-year-old has still defied expectations a bit with an 18-22-5 record, a 3.37 GAA and a .902 save percentage through 47 appearances. The Coyotes have a back-to-back up next -- they host the Stars on Friday and the Sharks on Saturday to wrap up their current homestand.

    Foegele provided an assist and three shots on goal in Monday's 5-4 win over the Coyotes.

    Foegele has been steady in a third-line role lately with two goals and four assists over his last seven games. He set up Evan Bouchard's game-tying goal at 13:34 of the first period. Foegele is up to 13 tallies, 12 helpers, 112 shots on net, 86 hits and a plus-4 rating through 59 contests.

    Bjugstad notched an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Monday's 5-4 win over the Coyotes.

    Bjugstad was able to get on the scoresheet in his return to Arizona. He was traded from the Coyotes to the Oilers at the deadline, and he's picked up five points through 11 contests with Edmonton. For the season, the 30-year-old center has 28 points, 129 shots on net, 150 hits and a plus-11 rating through 70 appearances.

    Yamamoto posted a shorthanded assist in Monday's 5-4 win over the Coyotes.

    Yamamoto set up Darnell Nurse on the go-ahead goal at 18:11 of the first period. With five points over his last five outings, Yamamoto is enjoying one of his steadiest stretches of the season. The 24-year-old winger is up to 10 goals, 22 points (two shorthanded), 82 shots on net, 69 hits and a plus-9 rating through 50 appearances.

    McDavid provided a power-play assist, three shots on goal, two hits, two PIM and a minus-2 rating in Monday's 5-4 win over the Coyotes.

    This was a bit of a mixed bag for McDavid, but he was able to reached the 80-assist and 140-point marks while extending his point streak to eight games. During the streak, the superstar center has six tallies and 10 helpers. He's earned 64 power-play points with 319 shots on net, 82 hits and a plus-14 rating through 74 appearances this season.
