Paul Postma Headshot

Coach Paul Maurice noted Tuesday that a decision whether Postma will need surgery to address a lower body issue will be made in the next few days, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Postma, who last suited up March 16, thus remains without a timetable for a returm, though with 14 points and 15 PIM in 65 games to date, the 28-year-old blueliner is off the fantasy radar in most formats.

Jonathan Bernier Headshot

Bernier left the ice first at morning skate, meaning he will likely start Tuesday night's game in Vancouver, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

While the first goalie off the ice at morning skate is usually the one who will start that night's game, wary fantasy owners and daily players may want to check warmups prior to puck drop to ensure that Bernier is indeed the starter. That said, even with John Gibson returning to health, it wouldn't be surprising to see Bernier start again as he has been on an absolute tear in place of Gibson. Assuming he does go, he'll face pucks from a stumbling Canucks team that ranks 28th in the league with 2.08 goals per game in March.

Robbie Grossman Headshot

Grossman (groin) played three innings of defense and logged four at-bats in a minor league game Tuesday and reported no issues, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Grossman has missed a little over a week due to a bout of groin tightness, but it seems like the issue is now in the rear-view mirror. As long as the ailment doesn't return, he should be ready to be the fourth outfielder for the Twins when Opening Day comes.

Alec Asher Headshot

Asher was traded to the Orioles for a player to be named later.

With the Phillies rotation set heading into the season, Asher was destined to start the year with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He pitched well in his short stint with the big league club last season, posting a 2.28 ERA across 27.2 innings (five starts), though he only struck out 13 batters. The 25-year-old will likely head to Triple-A Norfolk where he'll work for a call-up.

Troy Stecher Headshot

Stecher (upper body) has an outside chance of returning to action for Friday's game against the Kings, which effectively rules him out for Tuesday night's matchup with the Ducks.

Stecher's injury is severe enough to keep him out least one game and quite possibly for a second as well. The 22-year-old recorded assists in each of the three games before going down with his injury, so he'll be looking to keep up the momentum Friday or whenever he returns.

Rob Whalen Headshot

Whalen (calf) was seen walking around without crutches Tuesday, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

This is certainly a good sign moving forward, although it's unclear how much activity he's actually been able to do while off of the crutches. Unless Whalen has made significant progress in his rehab from the calf strain, he very well could open the season on the disabled list, but things should become clearer in the coming days as he ramps up his activity further.

Jered Weaver Headshot

Contrary to an earlier report, Weaver will start San Diego's fourth game of the season.

Earlier, the Padres mistakenly reported that Weaver would start their third game of the season. Although Weaver will still face the Dodgers when he makes his season debut, it will be one day later than was initially indicated.
