Dion Waiters says he wants to return to the Thunder.

Waiters has a bit of a breakout in the playoffs, and while he could probably parlay that into a big contract from a desperate team like the Nets, Oklahoma City is probably the best place for Waivers on and off the court. While Waiters would likely have a higher ceiling on another team, the odds are he would be a disaster someplace else, like Lance Stephenson has been since leaving the Pacers.

Dalton Pompey left Monday's game with Triple-A Buffalo with an apparent knee injury.

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.

Update: Miguel Rojas left Monday's game with a shoulder injury.

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.

Nate Chandler will visit with the Lions this week.

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.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi hopes sending down Luis Severino could help him figure things out like Roy Halladay did early in his career.

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.

Gary Kubiak said don't sleep on Trevor Siemian winning the starting quarterback job.

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.

Trevor Plouffe (knee) was used as a pinch runner on Monday.

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.

Bryce Harper was diagnosed with a knee contusion and is considsered day-to-day.

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.

Dennis Pitta hopes to make an impact this season after two injury filled seasons.

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.

Marcus Gilbert said his goal is to make the pro bowl this season after being subbed in 2016 when he allowed only one sack.

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!
