Plumlee hit free agency for the first time in his career this off-season, and did not last long on the market. He offers tenacity and energy on the defensive end of the court, and he should have plenty of gas left in the tank after being underused by the Bucks during his time with Milwaukee.
In addition to the Warriors, it has been reported that the Pistons also have interest in the big man. Golden State is looking for a center to attack the rim, and Horford offers nice versatility both offensively and defensively. Of course, the Warriors are also interested in Kevin Durant, and if he they sign him, the money may not be there to ink Horford as well.
Travis will be hitting second on Saturday when the Blue Jays visit the White Sox in Chicago. Travis went 2-for-4 on Friday night against the same White Sox team.
The left-handed hitting Goins will hit eighth against righty Miguel Gonzalez, who is starting for the host White Sox. He is 5-for-19 against Gonzalez in his career with one RBI and no homers.
Not a surprise, given his prior workload of playing 25 games without a day off. He is slotted in to hit third on Saturday against the Blue Jays' starter, R.A. Dickey.
The Orioles will not try to use Matt Weiters for a Saturday doubleheader, opting instead to give Pena one of the starts. The Orioles had planned to use Pena in Friday's game but instead he will hit ninth against the Rays' starter, Matt Andriese.
That was short and not so sweet. Mark Teixeira was activated from the DL on Saturday, making Davis expendable. If he clears waivers, he will likely join Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Rob Refsnyder will be the backup first base option going forward.
The veteran was shut down last January with a shoulder dislocation. He still has the ability to provide rebounding when on the court, as well as providing shot blocks and steals. The scoring is not why he is valuable, and with the Bulls bringing in center Robin Lopez, he will be looking for a new home.
Abreu had Friday off after playing the past 25 games. He will be occuring the third slot in the order when the White Sox host the Jays on Saturday.
All reports suggest Parsons will not be receiving a max deal from the Mavs, so he's ready to go wherever the money takes him at this point. It appears no hometown discount will be awarded to the Mavs and this may very well be the end of his time in Dallas. Due to the salary cap rising, it's hard to imagine Parsons not receiving a max deal somewhere. Harrison Barnes may very well earn a max deal and the two are quite similar in terms of skill sets. Don't expect Parsons back in Dallas.
