3 years agoCleveland Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco had an MRI done on his right (throwing) elbow. It showed swelling in the joint, but no structural damage. Cleveland manager Terry Francona has said that Carrasco will have at least one Cactus League start skipped, and potentially more. As of now, there is no thought of him missing regular season starts, but that cannot be stated for certain just yet. Keep an eye on Indians camp and draft very carefully.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: Jordan Bastian on Twitter

3 years agoSean Kilpatrick has been playing some of his best basketball of the season recently, even leading the lowly Brooklyn Nets in scoring during a rare road win over the playoff-bound Memphis Grizzlies. Kilpatrick has been playing well in a sixth-man role for the Brooklyn Nets, with his ability to drive the ball and convert from the free-throw line leading the way. Over his last eight games, Kilpatrick is averaging nearly six attempts from the line and has converted just over five a game – this includes 16 conversions of 17 attempts versus the Grizzlies, and eight of nine two nights later against the Atlanta Hawks. Kilpatrick is averaging 14 points, four rebounds, two assists and one steal over the last two weeks. With solid play like this, Sean is making a strong case to be picked up, with owners celebrating this upcoming “Kil-Patty’s Day” in style.--Teodor Stanescu - RotoBallerSource: Pete Wickham

3 years agoNathan Karns is battling for the fifth starter role in Kansas City, but his performance on Sunday isn't going to help his case. Karns was lit up in the second inning of the outing and tagged for four runs. Karns has progressively gotten worse throughout Spring Training, and if he's going to make the team, he'll have to step it up from here. If he can land in the rotation, his elite strikeout rate will attract some brave fantasy owners. However, until he can more consistently be the pitcher who had a 3.67 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 2015 instead of the one that had a 5.15 ERA and 1.48 WHIP in 2016, Karns should only be watched from afar.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com

3 years agoWhile there was lots of promise and expectation surrounding Alex Len at the start of the season, most of that has faded. Len, who has missed the last two games with a minor hip issue, has largely unimpressed, and has gotten outplayed by both Tyson Chandler, at the start of the season, and Alan Williams more recently. With the Suns also leaning towards Marquese Chriss, Len seems to have become the odd-man out. Despite these issues, Len has still managed averages of eight points, six rebounds and one block per game this season and could keep this production up. Unless you’re in a 16-man league, however, Len is better left on the waiver wire.--Teodor Stanescu - RotoBallerSource: Doug Haller
Share:
3 years agoPhoenix Suns power forward Alan Williams has continued to make the most of his opportunity, and is now firmly established in the Suns’ rotation. Williams set a franchise record last week, becoming the first Sun to post double-doubles in five consecutive games as a reserve. Williams’ hot play has been mightily rewarding for fantasy owners who took a risk on him earlier on this month – he is averaging 13 points, nine rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block, and only one turnover in 23 minutes per game over that span. With numbers like that, owners should take off running to add him if he is still on the waiver wire in any league.--Teodor Stanescu - RotoBallerSource: Cody Cunningham
Share:
3 years agoJason Vargas has had a long road back from Tommy John surgery, but he appears to be improving with every start. Vargas threw three shutout innings this weekend and approached 60 pitches for the first time this spring. Vargas is expected to be the No. 4 starter for Kansas City this season, and owners in AL-only and deep mixed leagues should give him a look. While Vargas won't ever ascend into the role of an ace, an ERA around 4.00 should earn him a spot on the back end of some deep rosters.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: Jeffrey Flanagan
Share:
3 years agoPeter O'Brien is continuing to put pressure on Kansas City to find a spot for him. O'Brien hit his fourth home run of the spring this weekend, and he's now carrying a .267 average and outstanding 1.067 OPS through spring training. Though he is expected to be left out of the initial mix for the Royals due to the presence of Brandon Moss at designated hitter, O'Brien is still only 26 years old and should draw some attention if an injury hits the starting lineup.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: Jeffrey Flanagan
Share:
3 years agoLavoy Allen (knee) will not play tonight in New York. Allen seemed to have turned a corner earlier this month, stringing several nice games together for an Indiana Pacers team that is looking to bolster its frontcourt in any way it can. Since then, however, Allen has cooled off and should remain off all fantasy owners’ radars. Allen’s absence likely means an increase in backup minutes for Kevin Seraphin, Al Jefferson, and Rakeem Christmas, but it does not make any of these players enticing fantasy plays in any format.--Teodor Stanescu - RotoBallerSource: Indiana Pacers
Share:
3 years agoThe Cleveland Cavaliers are expecting their third All-Star, Kevin Love, to make his return from knee surgery some time next week. Love is believed to be traveling with the team on their upcoming road trip and has a strong possibility of getting back into the swing of things sooner rather than later. Love was having his best season as a Cavalier before this setback, averaging 20 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and an effective field goal percentage of 51.6 percent. While his minutes may be restricted his first few games back, owners can expect Love to pick things up right where he left off.--Teodor Stanescu - RotoBallerSource: Tom Withers
Share:
3 years agoThe Cleveland Cavaliers' newest addition, Larry Sanders, will be on the Cavs’ bench tonight but will not be playing. Sanders has stated that he would like time in the D-League to work himself back into game shape. While Sanders’ presence would be an additional boost in the absence of Kevin Love, he would likely only play limited minutes anyway. LeBron James and Tristan Thompson will continue to get the lion's share of the minutes in the Cavs' frontcourt, with Derrick Williams and Channing Frye splitting the rest of the minutes.--Teodor Stanescu - RotoBallerSource: Marla Ridenour
Share:
3 years agoAfter what was a non-existent first half of the season, Nemanja Bjelica was surprisingly surrounded by trade rumors just before the trade deadline. Since then, he has shown us why there was any interest in him at all. Bjelica has quickly become a force for the Minnesota Timberwolves, logging four double-doubles in his last seven games. He is averaging 10 points, eight rebounds and three assists in 28 minutes per game over the last two weeks and is proving to be a key cog in the Timberwolves’ late push for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. With this goal still within reach, fantasy owners would be smart to pick up Bjelica, as he shows no signs of slowing down.--Teodor Stanescu - RotoBallerSource: Jace Frederick
Share:
3 years agoVeteran guard Tony Parker continues to miss time with a back injury. That has opened a door for guard Patty Mills to make an impact on the Spurs. He scored 15 points with nine assists, two rebounds, two steals and three triples in Monday's victory against Atlanta. Mills dropped 21 points in the game against the Warriors, and is averaging 9.8 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 3.4 assists this season. He'll continue to see playing time, and is worth adding right now.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Yahoo
Share:
3 years agoSt. Louis Cardinals outfielder/pitcher Jordan Schafer will undergo elbow surgery on Friday, severely hurting his chances of making a major league roster this season. Schafer was trying to make the team as a two-way player, spending time in the outfield and on the mound. It is unclear how long he will need to recover from the procedure, but his chances have certainly taken a huge hit.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: Jenifer Langosch on Twitter
Share:
3 years agoNets guard Joe Harris will not play against the Thunder on Tuesday night. Harris has been ruled out with a concussion and sprained left shoulder that has kept him out since March 4. This season, Harris isn't offering much fantasy value, with just 8.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists. Guard Caris LeVert has seen more minutes since the Harris injury. He's done well lately, posting 13 points against the Knicks. He's worth picking up if you need a scoring guard right now.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Nets PR on Twitter
Share:
3 years agoAfter sitting Troy Tulowitzki out of about a week’s worth of spring training games in an effort to keep the veteran shortstop fresh, a slow start probably should have been expected. However, now we’re moving past the idea of a “slow start” and crossing more into a flat-out slump. Tulo finished 0-for-3 Monday against the Red Sox, keeping his slash line at literally the worst possible figure: .000/.000/.000. Currently being drafted as the 12th shortstop off the board, Tulo could see his draft stock continue to fall if he doesn’t start swinging the bat better soon. Of course, the plus side there is if his ADP does plummet, savvy fantasy player should be happy to take a chance on him at a reduced price tag.--John SmithSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoNeil Walker once again had himself a day on Monday in a 6-4 win over the Marlins, finishing 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI. Walker has been tearing it up all spring thus far, hitting .333 with a .385 on-base percentage and 1.176 OPS to go along with five runs scored, 10 RBI and three home runs. Walker was having a great year in his debut campaign in Queens last season before a herniated disc ended his season. Once again playing on a one-year contract before heading into free agency, it seems likely he’s in line for another solid year (assuming his health holds up). Walker is currently ranked 16th in RotoBaller’s second basemen rankings and could eclipse that if he stays healthy for the duration of the season.--John SmithSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoPhiladelphia Phillies first baseman Tommy Joseph left the spring game early with a bruised left hand Tuesday after he was hit by a pitch. He's likely day-to-day. After looking like a bust in the minor leagues, Joseph was given a chance at first base last year and didn't disappoint, with 21 home runs and 47 RBI in 347 plate appearances. His plate discipline is lacking, though, leaving his average vulnerable. However, his fly-ball tendencies (45.1 percent last year) and hard-hit profile make him worth owning as a corner infielder in deeper leagues.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MBL.com - Todd Zolecki
Share:
3 years agoCleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley (shoulder) is scheduled to play in minor league games Wednesday and Friday, according to manager Terry Francona. It's good news for Brantley, but he's still questionable for the start of the regular season, much like he was in 2016 when he wound up playing in just 11 games. Most fantasy owners don't want to revisit that nightmare, so Brantley will be an excellent value pick as a risk-reward fourth or fifth outfielder. He has the potential to be an excellent bargain and perform like a second or third outfielder, though, if he's fully healthy.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - Jordan Bastian
Share:
3 years agoTampa Bay Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier was scratched from the spring lineup Tuesday with neck stiffness. Kiermaier has had neck stiffness in camp, but it's more of a day-to-day thing. He should be fine in the long run. He's an elite defensive center fielder, but his improved patience at the plate in the second half of last year saw his on-base percentage soar and his stolen base attempts follow. 2017 could be a breakout season for Kiermaier if he keeps his second-half plate approach from last season. Draft him at a nice value in the middle rounds of drafts to bolster your outfield depth.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Tampa Bay Times - Marc Topkin
Share:
3 years agoCleveland Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco is being checked out by the Indians medical staff today after an atrocious start yesterday in which he allowed eight runs while only recording five outs. The Indians pitching coach said his fastball was "really flat" and that there was some concern. Overall, it seems like the team is just being overly cautious and making sure their right-hander is OK, but it's still something to keep an eye on over the next few days and potentially into his next few starts.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoThe Arizona Cardinals plan to use running back Andre Ellington more as a wide receiver than running back moving forward. Ellington had only 34 rushing attempts last year behind David Johnson, but he's also had just 27 receptions in the last two years in Arizona, so temper expectations as far as Ellington is concerned in more of a receiver role in 2017. This doesn't change the fact that Ellington is strictly a handcuff option to Johnson owners in fantasy leagues.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Arizona Republic - Kent Somers
Share:
3 years agoSeattle Seahawks running back Eddie Lacy weighed in at 267 pounds during one of his free-agent visits last week after he weighed in at 234 pounds last year. Well, that can't be a good sign after Lacy was limited to just five games with the Packers in 2016 due to ankle injuries. But it's also not a huge surprise, as the burly running back has continued to deal with conditioning issues throughout his career. In Seattle, he'll have an opportunity to be the power back that the Seahawks are lacking in both Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise. Lacy's touches may be limited, but he could make some fantasy noise as an RB3/flex play depending on matchups.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - Bob McGinn
Share:
3 years agoThe Minnesota Vikings will visit with free-agent tight end Jared Cook unless he accepts a deal with the Seattle Seahawks during his visit Tuesday, according to a source. The Seahawks already have a No. 1 tight end in Jimmy Graham, and the Vikings have their No. 1 in Kyle Rudolph, so neither destination is particularly rosy for Cook's fantasy value. Cook likely blew it by not re-signing with the Green Bay Packers, where he would've been an attractive TE1 with Aaron Rodgers throwing him passes.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: USA TODAY Sports - Tom Pelissero
Share:
3 years agoFree-agent running back Latavius Murray is visiting with the Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday, according to a source. Murray ran 195 times for 788 yards and a career-high 12 touchdowns in 2016 with the Raiders a year after hitting the 1,000-yard mark. The biggest difference between Oakland and Minnesota is the offensive lines, as Murray ran behind one of the better run-blocking units last season. The Vikes had one of the worst, although they figure to be somewhat improved in 2017. Murray, who also caught 33 passes last year, could form something of a three-headed monster with Jerick McKninnon and Matt Asiata, although Murray would likely be the favorite for most of the touches. In Minnesota, he profiles as a low-end RB2, high-end RB3.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN - Adam Schefter
Share:
3 years agoThe Seattle Seahawks agreed to terms with free-agent running back Eddie Lacy on a one-year, $5.5 million deal Wednesday. The deal includes $3 million fully guaranteed. It's a prove-it deal after Lacy has dealt with conditioning issues and was limited to just five games in 2016 due to ankle issues. The former Alabama runner had two 1,000-yard seasons to open his career but has regressed since. He'll have a chance to bounce back in Seattle, but he'll share touches with both Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise in the backfield. However, Lacy's power running style differs from the pass-catching roles that Rawls and Prosise fill, so he may carve out a fantasy relevant role.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com - Conor Orr
Share:
3 years agoColorado Rockies catcher Tom Murphy was diagnosed with a hairline fracture in his right forearm, and he will miss four to six weeks. It's another tough break for the Rockies after Ian Desmond broke his hand in camp recently. Murphy was setting up to be a sneaky top-20 fantasy catching option after he slugged 19 home runs in 80 games at Triple-A last season. Tony Wolters will now enter the year as Colorado's primary catcher, but he's more of a defense-first guy after hitting just three home runs with a .259 average in 230 plate appearances in 2016. Wolter's high .336 BABIP likely means he'll see some regression, too. The powerful Murphy could still be worth stashing in deep NL-only and dynasty leagues.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Denver Post - Nick Groke
Share:
3 years agoThere is bad news for Cavs fans as veteran guard Kyle Korver will at least miss one more week. Korver has inflammation of a tendon in his left foot and will miss a week, and possibly longer. This season, Korver is averaging 10.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists. Iman Shumpert and Richard Jefferson will see an increase in minutes during Korver's absence. Shumpert is not worth an add in fantasy, but Jefferson has been playing well lately. If you need a replacement for Korver or a guard in general, Jefferson is a decent option right now.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Yahoo
Share:
3 years agoKansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez (knee) is back at camp and will undergo an MRI exam Tuesday. Perez injured his knee during a collision in the World Baseball Classic over the weekend. It's not expected to be serious after initial tests showed just inflammation. Assuming everything checks out fine, Perez is a top-five fantasy backstop. He's changed his profile in recent seasons from a high-average, high-contact guy to more of a low-average, high-power hitter. He's posted back-to-back seasons of 20-plus dingers yet has seen his average drop from .292 in 2013 to .247 last year.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Kansas City Star - Rustin Dodd
Share:
3 years agoJ.A. Happ made his second start of the spring on Monday, and fortunately for fantasy owners it went a lot like his first start of the spring. Taking the hill against the Red Sox, Happ threw four innings and allowed only one earned run on three hits with zero walks and one strikeout. For the spring campaign thus far, Happ has thrown six innings and amassed a 1.50 ERA with three strikeouts and a 0.67 WHIP. After a surprisingly good 2016, Happ seems ready to put together another solid year in 2017. As a late-round draft pick, Happ could end up providing sneaky good value.--John SmithSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoThe Thunder have announced that veteran forward Taj Gibson will start against the Brooklyn Nets Tuesday night. Gibson was battling a hip injury that kept him out of practice on Sunday. This season, Gibson is averaging 11.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.0 assists. He's been basically a non-factor since joining OKC but played well against the Jazz before exiting with that hip injury. He scored 15 points with six rebounds in 22 minutes. Gibson is worth using tonight against a struggling Nets team, but he's a short-term option.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Yahoo
