Spangenberg is eligible to come off the DL on May 5th, but that does not seem to be the Padres' expectation for their young second baseman at this point. Jemile Weeks has been seeing most of the playing time in Spangenberg's place.
Curry is still unable to run or shoot, but reports are he was walking around without a limp and in high spirits Friday. The 2014-15 MVP expressed optimism over returning to the court within the two-week estimated time of recovery from his sprained knee or possibly sooner. The Warriors' second-round series against the Blazers is set to begin Sunday afternoon.
Roberts had a fairly productive season as the Redskins' main slot man in 2014, but he fell behind rookie Jamison Crowder in the passing game last season. Roberts now seems completely expendable with the addition of former TCU star Josh Doctson to the receiving corps.
Cousins has dealt with foot tendinitis for quite some time now. According to the enigmatic star, that condition apparently bothers him more and more every season. Cousins has been an All-Star in each of the past two years, averaging 25.6 points, 12.0 rebounds, 1.6 blocks and 1.5 steals overall during that span. However, he has managed to play just 59 and 65 games respectively.
It certainly makes sense that the Cubs would like to ink Arrieta to a long-term deal. It makes even more sense that the Cy Young award winner would play hard to get. Arrieta is making $10.7M this season and has one more arbitration year remaining before potentially reaching free agency after the 2017 campaign.
Prigioni did not come to the NBA until age 35, and after four seasons in the States, he appears to be ready to hang it up. The nearly 39-year-old guard from Argentina averaged 3.5 points, 2.8 assists and 1.0 steal over 270 NBA games between the Knicks, Rockets and Clippers.
Murphy started 15 games for the Redskins this past season, getting in on 32 tackles and recording 3.5 sacks. He will apparently slide up and spend most of his time on the defensive line in 2016.
