Nick Tropeano Headshot

Nick Tropeano went for a second opinion on his elbow.

The first opinion indicated that he has a torn UCL which is usually a direct predecessor of the Tommy John procedure, however he will do his due diligence and seek out another opinion. He is likely to get the same diagnosis and advice, but he would be remiss to not at least explore other professionals.

Sasha Kaun Headshot

Sasha Kaun announced his retirement from the NBA.

Well, that was a short lived career considering he played just one year in The Association, but he must have wanted to end on top, as he captured an NBA title with the Cavs in his one season. Sure he wasn't an integral player on the team by any stretch of the imagination, but he can always make more money overseas, or he can just ride off into the sunset at the still very young age of 31.

Cameron Payne Headshot

Cameron Payne underwent foot surgery on Monday.

While Payne has been hampered by this injured fifth metatarsal in his foot since mid-March, he surprisingly played very well through it and even managed to be the high scorer during the Summer League just this past month. Considering how he managed to play through it for all of this time, he will almost certainly be ready to go for the beginning of the season come late-October.

Cameron Bradfield Headshot

Cowboys signed Cameron Bradfield.

Bradfield will have an opportunity to make the team out of camp, but considering the roster requirements, that is unlikely. Even if he does make the team, he will almost certainly hold no fantasy value going forward.

LeBron James Headshot

Cavaliers and Ty Lue have agreed to a five-year extension worth $35 million.

The beauty of winning a title, as Lue was largely mediocre at best for most of his first foray into the head coaching world. He did do an excellent job in the Finals, which is where it counts the most, but his acumen will not truly be realized until LeBron leaves or calls it a career (See: Erik Spoelstra).

Alex Rodriguez Headshot

Yankees said they have not discussed releasing Alex Rodriguez.

While he is struggling mightily, Rodriguez is still a draw for fans and is still owed a ton of money. With the Yankees not expected to make the playoffs anyway, why not let A-Rod stick around for his potential milestones that are right around the corner.

Noah Syndergaard Headshot

Cardinals and Mets will play a doubleheader on Tuesday.

There is a wicked storm in the northeast right now, so unsurprisingly the Mets and Cardinals showdown in Queens was postponed. For the Mets, Noah Syndergaard will start Game 1 on Tuesday, while Bartolo Colon will start Game 2. St Louis will trot out Carlos Martinez for Game 1 and Jaime Garcia will start Game 2.

Kevin Dodd Headshot

Kevin Dodd (foot) will be good to go for the start of training camp.

Dodd slid slightly in the draft due to the worry about his health headed into the season, however it appears that he will be fine for the start of training camp. As for his fantasy impact, rookie pass rushers rarely contribute at a high level, so owners can leave him out of their IDP lineups going forward.

Terron Armstead Headshot

Saints have placed Terron Armstead, Keenan Lewis, Hau'oli Kikaha, Vincent Brown on the physically unable to perform list.

Lewis has dealt with injuries for most of the last two years, Kikaha is unlikely to play at all in 2016, Brown's situation is more up in the air, while Armstead has practiced recently so many are just calling this a precautionary move by the Saints for him.

Matt Duffy Headshot

Matt Duffy is taking batting practice on Monday.

It's now been over a month since Duffy last appeared with the Giants but he's making a lot of progress as he's now taking BP. Duffy will participate in a rehab assignment before returning to the Giants lineup.
