Zach Ertz is expected to see an increase in snaps this season.

Ertz was a popular sleeper pick heading into last season due to his size and athleticism but he failed to meet those expectations despite being in a high powered offense. This news should once again bolster his fantasy appeal heading into the season as the departure of key players like Jeremy Maclin could open up the middle of the field. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Michael Cuddyer left Tuesday's game with a sore left knee.

Cuddyer is struggling with the Mets this season, hitting .243 with 31 runs, six home runs and 28 RBI. Cuddyer should be considered day-to-day for now but there is little upside to his fantasy value now that he no longer calls Coors home. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Jimmy Butler postponed meetings with teams after receiving a max qualifying offer from the Bulls.

Seeing as the Bulls have the ability to offer Butler more money in their max offer than other teams it seems all but certain that Butler will return to the Bulls despite being rumored to be in talks with the Lakers about a possible short term deal. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Kings will not issue a qualifying offer to F Derrick Williams.

Williams was the No.2 overall pick back in 2011 but has never developed into the type of player many projected when he came out of college. He is however a solid bench player who has the ability to play a stretch forward while also contributing on the glass. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Tim Lincecum (arm) will be placed on the disabled list Thursday.

Matt Cain will be coming off the DL and starting in place of Lincecum. Cain is working his way back from surgery to remove bone chips in his elbow which he blames for his struggles last season. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

John Jaso played his third rehab game on Tuesday. He played six innings at first base and went 0 for 3 with three groundouts.

Jaso was expected to be the Rays DH heading into the season but with the need for depth at first base the Rays are having him play the position during rehab. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Former Jazz draftee Kevin Murphy is on the Charlotte Hornets Summer League Roster.

Murphy was a second round pick back in 2012 and has since spent time playing for various D-League affiliates along with stints in France and China. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Jordan Walden (biceps) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list on Tuesday.

Walden's transfer to the 60-day DL will open up a spot on the Cardinals 40-man roster. Taking his place will be Marcus Hatley who is being called up from Triple-A. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Yohan Flande has been recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Flande has been recalled with John Axford being placed on the temporary inactive list. Flande appeared in three games out of the Rockies bullpen this season and was hammered for six runs over 7.1 innings. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Justin Miller has been recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Miller was recalled to replace Christian Bergman in the Rockies bullpen. Miller appeared in five games for the Rockies earlier this season, allowing just one earned run over 4.1 innings while striking out four. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Christian Bergman (shoulder fatigue) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Bergman has appeared in 19 games this season with 18 of them coming out of the Rockies bullpen. With his placement on the DL the Rockies have recalled Justin Miller. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

John Axford has been placed on the temporary inactive list.

The Rockies made a few moves on Tuesday with their bullpen with the biggest being Axford who is their closer. It's unknown how long Axford will be out but expect the Rockies to use a closer by committee while he is. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Pelicans, Bucks and Knicks are among interested teams for C Robin Lopez.

Lopez is a consistent center but not an exciting one, averaging 10.8 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks over the past three seasons as a starter. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Andrew Bellatti (shoulder) threw two innings in a rehab start Tuesday for High-A Charlotte.

Bellatti has been on the DL with shoulder soreness but is only expected to need a short rehab stint before returning to Triple-A. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Tim Federowicz (knee) will travel with the Padres but is not likely to start a rehab assignment until after the road trip.

Federowicz was part of the trade that saw Matt Kemp go to San Diego but is not expected to make any sort of fantasy impact due to his lack of offensive ability.  Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
