Jon Leuer Headshot

Leuer will get the start at power forward for Tuesday's matchup against the Heat, Pistons' radio announcer Mark Champion reports.

After starting 28 of 29 games, Leuer has played a reserve role for nine of the previous ten contests. However, coach Stan Van Gundy appears to see favorable matchup for Leuer against the Heat, as he has opted to start him over Tobias Harris. It is unclear if this will be a one time switch or a permanent change to the starting lineup. Thus, the situation will need to be monitored going forward.

Josh Rutledge Headshot

Rutledge, who exited Tuesday's Grapefruit League game early, has been diagnosed with a left hamstring strain, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

It's a tough break for Rutledge, who was slated to open the season as a left-handed utility option for the Red Sox off the bench. As of now, no timetable has been set for his return. Fellow infielder Marco Hernandez is a good candidate to fill Rutledge's role in the meantime.

Yovani Gallardo Headshot

Gallardo surrendered seven earned runs on nine hits and two walks over 4.1 innings in Monday's 12-2 Cactus League loss to the Padres. He struck out two.

Gallardo surrendered a trio two-run home runs, with two coming in the first inning off the bats of Wil Myers and Ryan Schimpf. The Mariners' No. 5 starter will have one more opportunity to right the ship before the regular season when he takes the mound in Saturday's spring finale against the Rockies, but worked up to 91 pitches in Monday's outing per AJ Cassavell of MLB.com.

Daniel Coulombe Headshot

Coulombe, still fighting for a bullpen spot, fired three innings of scoreless relief in Monday's 10-3 Cactus League loss to the Royals, surrendering just a hit and a walk.

Coulombe has helped his case quite a bit in his last three trips to the mound, during which he's pitched 7.1 scoreless innings while allowing just two hits and Monday's walk. He's notched four strikeouts as well over that span and has lowered his ERA from 12.71 to 5.54. The veteran southpaw may have cemented his spot on the 25-man roster with Monday's performance, but could see more duty later this week before a final decision is made.

Amir Garrett Headshot

Garrett will be in the Reds' starting rotation to open the season, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Garrett was in the middle of a five-man battle for one of the Reds' final three starting rotation spots, and it now looks like he will be the fourth starter, according to Mark Sheldon. The 24-year-old posted a 4.22 ERA across 21.1 innings this spring, earning him a spot in the rotation over the likes of Cody Reed and Robert Stephenson, who will likely head to the bullpen to start the season.
7:00 pm (EST)
Ben Street Headshot

Street is in the lineup Tuesday against the Hurricanes, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

The 30-year-old center will play his first game in the NHL this season, and it's well deserved after tearing it up for the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins so far. Street has recorded 54 points over 60 games -- the best on the team. He has had difficulty making the jump to finding a spot in the big league, though, but now could be a chance to prove himself with a struggling Detroit team.
7:00 pm (EST)
Yannick Weber Headshot

Weber (upper body) is not in the lineup for Tuesday night's game in Boston.

This will be Weber's second consecutive absence and he does not have a timeline for return right now. That should be fine by most fantasy players, as Weber hasn't gotten on the scoresheet in 17 straight games.
6:59 pm (EST)
Daniel Norris Headshot

Norris said his arm feels better on Tuesday after experiencing "dead arm" on Monday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Norris was lit up for nine runs on 13 hits over three innings in Monday's spring game, and afterward said his arm felt like it weighed "a million pounds." It's a good sign that Norris feels better a day later, but his health is still worth monitoring early in the year. The young lefty is slated to start the team's third game of the season.
6:59 pm (EST)
Andrew Triggs Headshot

Triggs surrendered eight earned runs on eight hits, two walks and a wild pitch over 3.2 innings in Monday's 10-3 Cactus League loss to the Royals. He struck out four but also gave up three home runs.

Triggs was taken deep by Mike Moustakas, Paulo Orlando and Brandon Moss, and per Jane Lee of MLB.com, he struggled with his fastball command and overly focused on his changeup, which led to most of his troubles. The projected No. 4 starter for the time being while Sonny Gray's lat injury moves everyone up a notch in the rotation, the right-hander has one more tuneup start scheduled before his regular season debut on April 6. "I think it was a combination of two things," Triggs said. "We went to the well quite a bit working on the changeup, which is something you do as spring is coming to a close. I wanted to get a better feel for that. And, two, you're naturally going to put yourself into less-than-ideal counts if you're working on what's clearly your fourth pitch, and you need fastball command to balance yourself out, and that was mediocre at best, so it was kind of the perfect storm of those two things."
