Pompey said that he just banged his knee against the wall, so his removal from the game seems to be more precautionary then anything. Unless the Toronto outfield falls victim to the injury bug, Pompey seems destined for a full year in the minors.
Rojas was promptly replaced by Derek Dietrich, who had been dealing with a head injury himself. Rojas is a role player right now, so his injury shouldn't impact many fantasy teams.
All teams could use some extra bodies up on the offensive line and the Detroit Lions are no exception. Quarterback Matthew Stafford would love for the team to bring in some extra bodies so he can stay upright this season.
Well hopefully they aren't expecting a similar career path like Roy Halladay. Severino has a lot of potential, but he's struggled this year. After being called up last year, he went 5-3 with a 2.89 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and a 56:22 K/BB ratio in 62.1 innings. This year has been much to the different, to the tune of a 0-6 record, 7.46 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and a 27:10 K/BB ratio in 35 innings. The optioning to Triple--A could be rewarding for Severino and the Yankees, but the process is going to take some time.
Well yeah, you can't sleep on Siemian because the other quarterbacks are rookie Paxton Lynch and Mark "the definition of average" Sanchez. Siemian has never thrown a pass in a regular season game, and the fact that he is in the running for the starting gig shines light on just how iffy this quarterback situation is.
Not only did he run the bases, but he also got an at-bat, in which he fouled out. He has missed three games with a sprained MCL, but it didn't appear to be an issue today. He should be in the starting lineup tomorrow.
Harper left the game after being hit by a pitch and is now considered day-to-day. The Nationals can beat the Phillies without him, so if the team wants to rest Harper's knee for a day or two, now would be the best time to do it. The team also has an off day on Thursday before starting a series with the Cincinnati Reds.
It's been a tumultuous two years for Pitta. He's dealt with serious injuries, but according to various reporters, Pitta is looking strong at OTAs. Pitta hasn't played in a game since 2014 and barring anything crazy, his long awaited return will be a big boost for the Ravens passing attack. His best season as a professional came in 2012 when he caught 61 passes for 669 yards and seven touchdowns.
While the personal accolade is a great goal, the fact of the matter is that if he goes out there and performs like he did last season, he should make the Pro Bowl this season. Gilbert had a great season and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger would love for him to only allow one sack again!
Biyombo's impressive play in the postseason is going to get him a nice paycheck this offseason. He doesn't bring much to a team on the offensive end, but when it comes to rebounding the basketball and protecting the rim, he's a borderline-elite option.
