Steven Wright Headshot

Wright (shoulder) is on schedule with his rehab and is expected to be ready Opening Day, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

The 32-year-old threw his first bullpen session of spring Monday, and the Red Sox are continuing to ease him back, with his next throwing session scheduled for Thursday. Manager John Farrell noted that, barring any setbacks, he believes Wright will have enough time to get ready for the season, so it is something that will be monitored as spring training progresses.

Okaro White Headshot

White was recalled from the D-League on Tuesday.

The Heat sent White to the D-League to allow him to participate in the D-League All-Star Game over the weekend, but he'll now return to Miami in advance of Friday's game in Atlanta. In 14 games for the Heat this season, White is averaging 4.2 points and 2.5 rebounds in 16.2 minutes per game.

Mike Tolbert Headshot

Tolbert was released by Carolina on Tuesday, Max Henson of the Panthers's official site reports.

Tolbert had arguably his least effective year in Carolina in 2016, averaging only 11.6 total yards per game. With younger backs Fozzy Whitaker and Cameron Artis-Payne filling in backup roles behind starter Jonathan Stewart, combined with the fact that Tolbert was due $1.5 million in 2017, the Panthers decided to part ways with the fullback. Tolbert will finish his career in Carolina with 19 total touchdowns over five years.

Marcus Stroman Headshot

Stroman said his surgically-repaired knee "finally feels 100 percent," and he's confident he can throw upwards of 240 innings this season, Paul Hagen of MLB.com reports.

Now two years removed from surgery to repair the torn ACL in his left knee, Stroman said Monday that his body "feels the best it's ever felt." The Jays' ace also commented on overcoming 2016's early-season struggles. "I just got kind of out of whack at some point," the 25-year-old said. "I just simplified everything on my own at that point, and that's something I'm going to stick with this year. It's in my delivery and in my motion. I feel excited this year for what I'm going to do." After failing to meet expectations in last year's campaign, Stroman could slip down some draft boards past his true value. He has the talent to be a solid ace, or at the very least, a strong second option across most fantasy formats.

Magnus Paajarvi Headshot

Paajarvi was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Tuesday.

After seven short games and three points, another NHL spell has come to a close for Paajarvi. The 10th-overall pick in 2009, Paajarvi's career arc has been disappointing to witness. As a highly-touted rookie, Paajarvi scored 15 goals and 34 points in 2010-11, but has trended downwards since then. Nowadays the 25-year-old Swede is a depth forward, bouncing back-and-forth between the AHL and NHL, hoping to rediscover his game.

Mike Hoffman Headshot

Hoffman (groin) will not play Tuesday night against the Devils, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Hoffman was among three Ottawa forwards to sustain an injury in Sunday's game against the Jets -- Mark Stone (neck) and Tommy Wingels (undisclosed) were the others. Ottawa's 17th-ranked power play takes a huge hit without Hoff, who has 11 power-play goals and is tied for fourth in the league with Patrick Eaves of the Stars in said category. Expect Ryan Dzingel to claim the top man-advantage slot at left wing while Hoffman heals.
1:20 pm (EST)
Drew Pomeranz Headshot

Pomeranz (elbow) is on track with his recovery and is expected to be ready for the start of the season, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Despite Pomeranz being behind most pitchers, having thrown his first bullpen session of spring Monday, manager John Farrell said he expects the southpaw to have enough time to be ready for opening day, barring any setbacks. He is slated to throw another bullpen session Thursday, and will look to lock down one of the final two rotation spots as he regains his health and starts to throw more in spring.
1:19 pm (EST)
Paul Soliai Headshot

Soliai will be released by the Panthers on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Soliai signed a two-year, $7 million deal only last year. He was owed a $500 thousand roster bonus Mar. 11, so apparently Carolina didn't find the former Pro Bowler worth keeping on. Soliai will look to find work as a run-stopper on an NFL roster in the coming months. He recorded only eight combined tackles in 2016, but has a big body to plug up lanes and allow other defenders to make plays, making him a valuable commodity.
1:16 pm (EST)
Kyle Quincey Headshot

Quincey (upper body) will make his return to the lineup Tuesday against Ottawa, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

The veteran defenseman has been sidelined for the team's last six games, and will skate with Damon Severson on the second pairing. Quincey has never provided much offense, but is a reliable defender who isn't afraid to sacrifice his body, as evidenced by his 71 hits and 69 blocked shots through 51 games in 2016-17.
1:11 pm (EST)
Mark Stone Headshot

Stone's injury concerns his neck and he'll be unavailable for Tuesday's road game against the Devils, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Ottawa is suddenly a mess up front with Stone, Mike Hoffman (lower body), and Tommy Wingels (undisclosed) all getting knocked out of Sunday's game against the Jets, one day after learning that top-six forward Bobby Ryan broke his finger. Stone's absence, for one, leaves a gaping hole on the top man-advantage unit. He's recorded 47 points (22 goals, 25 assists) in 56 games this season, with six scores and eight helpers taking place on the man advantage. The Senators have the option of patching up their forward lines with recent call-ups Max McCormick and Casey Bailey, though it's worth noting that Hoffman and Wingels reportedly accompanied the team to New Jersey ahead of Tuesday's game. It'll be risky to play Senators in fantasy leagues until more light is shed on who will sub in for the injured.
