Drew Stafford Headshot

Stafford (illness) will sit out Sunday's game agains the Senators.

Stafford's disappearance from the lineup for a second straight contest shouldn't be of much concern in most fantasy leagues given his 12 points (four goals, eight assists) through 39 contests this season. The veteran has a much-improved rating this season, but doesn't produce at a high enough rate nor see enough ice time (13:16 average) to warrant ownership in all but the deepest of leagues. Given the illness designation, it seems unlikely he will miss much more time.

Alex Tuch Headshot

Tuch was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Sunday.

The winger was up with the big club for just under a week, and found his way into three contests, only tallying one shot and averaging 9:30. He's still a solid prospect for the future, but for now, his production should be limited if he is called back up.

Sergei Bobrovsky Headshot

Bobrovsky will tend twine in Sunday's tilt against Nashville.

Bob has been one of the best goalies in the league this season, so if he gets the nod, he should be started in almost all season-long fantasy formats. Nashville is a slightly above average offensive team this year, with 2.77 goals per game, so Bobrovsky's value is even higher than in his last game when he stymied the top-scoring Penguins, stopping 38 of 39.

Adam Morgan Headshot

Manager Pete Mackanin said Morgan could be an option for the Phillies' bullpen this season, Todd Zolecki of reports.

Morgan is currently being stretched out as a starter in camp, but the Phillies don't have a need for him as a starter in the majors, and their Triple-A rotation is expected to be filled by younger prospects. Morgan struggled as a starter last season, going 2-11 with a 6.04 ERA and a 95:29 K:BB in 113.1 innings. If he ends up in the pen it would likely be in middle or long relief.

Roman Quinn Headshot

Quinn worked on his strength and flexibility this offseason to try to avoid the injuries that have plagued him in past seasons, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Quinn has had numerous leg injuries throughout his time in the minors and also suffered from a strained oblique twice last season. He will open the year in Triple-A, but could have a starting role in the majors as soon as midseason if he stays healthy. The Phillies are likely to try to trade their starting corner outfielders, Howie Kendrick and Michael Saunders, before the deadline this summer.

Michal Neuvirth Headshot

Neuvirth will guard the net in Sunday's game in Vancouver, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The backup will be making his fourth-straight start, despite struggling in his last outing, allowing six goals on 25 shots. The Canucks are one of the worst offenses in the league, averaging 2.31 goals per game, but it would still be risky to start Neuvirth on Sunday.

Connor Hellebuyck Headshot

Hellebuyck will start in goal Sunday against the Senators.

Hellebuyck didn't need much of an effort to take down the Canadiens on Saturday, but stopped 19 of the 20 shots he faced in the contest. As a result of the light workload, coach Paul Maurice will turn to his young netminder for a second straight game. This time around he faces a Senators squad that's won four of its last five games.

Calvin Pickard Headshot

Pickard will likely get the starting nod for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.

With a poor .907 save percentage on the year, Pickard isn't a very reliable fantasy start. That said, in his last two games, he's stopped 58 of 61 shots, so he's been on a tear. Against a middling offense like Tampa Bay --2.70 goals per game-- the 24-year-old will have a good shot at continuing his hot streak.

Hunter Pence Headshot

Pence (side) took 25 swings of live batting practice today and said he felt great after the session, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Hitting was the last step of the rehab process left for Pence to complete, so this was a promising sign for his nearing return. His back injury was never considered serious, and the club was simply taking it extra precaution with their veteran outfielder after he was experiencing pain in his side. Assuming there are no setbacks, Pence should get into some spring games and be ready for Opening Day.

Bobby Ryan Headshot

Ryan will miss an indefinite amount of time after taking a shot off his hand in Saturday's game against Toronto.

The veteran's production has declined dramatically this season, totaling just 24 points (12 goals, 12 assists) through 50 games. The Senators and fantasy owners will still feel his absence, however. Postmedia's Bruce Garrioch suggests Ryan could miss between three and six weeks, but more info on his injury and timeline should arise in the future.
