Rajai Davis Headshot

The Indians would like to keep Rajai Davis for 2017 season. There working on a qualifying offer.

Added 11/04/16 1:38 pm (EST)   Source
Davis' Game 7 home run will go down as one of the most overlooked clutch hit in World Series history. He had a solid season with Cleveland and it sounds like they'd like to bring back the veteran outfielder. At 36 years old, Davis set a career high in home runs with 12 and still managed to steal 43 bases. He should continue to be a solid contributor as he hasn't shown any signs of slowing down on the bases.
Miguel Rojas Headshot

Rojas left Saturday's game as a precautionary measure after feeling leg tightness, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

Added 1:35 am (EST)
Adeiny Hechavarria entered the game following Rojas' departure. Rojas should be considered day-to-day heading into Sunday's series finale against the Padres. Prior to his departure, Rojas had gone 0-for-2 at the plate.
Sonny Gray Headshot

Gray threw five shutout innings in his rehab outing at High-A Stockton on Saturday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Added 12:50 am (EST)
Gray was very efficient during Saturday's game, as he threw a mere 47 pitches over five innings and allowed just a single hit without walking any batters. It wouldn't come as a surprise if Gray made one or two more rehab starts before rejoining Oakland's rotation, but Saturday's effort certainly indicates that he's on the right track and that his return isn't too far away.
Kenta Maeda Headshot

Maeda's next start may be delayed so he can work on his pitching mechanics, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Added 12:31 am (EST)
Manager Dave Roberts believes that Maeda is being too aggressive when throwing his fastball, which is resulting in a lack of control. Maeda's next scheduled start is Thursday against the Giants. While the Dodgers have yet to decide whether or not they'll move his next start, they're entertaining the possibility due to his struggles. Maeda gave up six runs over five innings in Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks, which brought his ERA and WHIP up to 8.05 and 1.53, respectively.
Tyson Ross Headshot

Ross (shoulder) has resumed throwing, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Added 12:11 am (EST)
Ross has gone through a long rehab process since undergoing surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome in October. It was recently reported that he'd been dealing with back spasms, but he's continued throwing and plans to throw from a mound soon. At this point in time, he expects to be back with the big club at the latter end of May.
Sam Dyson Headshot

Dyson (hand) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Round Rock on Monday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Added 12:04 am (EST)
Dyson will be eligible to come off the DL on Thursday, but it remains to be seen whether or not he'll be activated at that point. Dyson's performance to start the season has been terribly disappointing, as he's blown three saves and allowed 13 runs over 4.1 innings (six games), so the club may want to see him throw a couple quality rehab outings before bringing him off the disabled list.
Eduardo Núñez Headshot

Nunez may play left field in the coming days, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Added Yesterday 11:46 pm (EST)
The Giants outfield has been hit by a handful of injuries recently. Jarrett Parker is out with a broken clavicle and Denard Span had to leave Saturday's game with a shoulder injury. Span's departure forced the Giants to shuffle their lineup and resulted in Nunez being sent to right field. Although Span isn't expected to miss much time, Nunez may be used in left field before Span returns. While it's not his primary position, Nunez does have experience playing the outfield, as he occasionally spent time there during his tenure with the Yankees and Twins.
Denard Span Headshot

Span (shoulder) won't be available for Sunday's game against the Rockies, Andrew Baggarly of Mercury News reports.

Added Yesterday 11:33 pm (EST)
The initial belief is that Span's injury is fairly minor sprain and that he'll simply need a couple days of rest before he's recovered. However, he'll still undergo X-rays to ensure the ailment isn't something more serious. If all goes according to plan, Span could rejoin the Giants' lineup by the middle of next week for their series against the Dodgers.
Carlos Martínez Headshot

Martinez, who is 0-3 with a 4.76 ERA over his first four starts, is at a loss as to the source of his problems thus far this season, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "I'm not really sure what's going on," he said. "I'm just trying to find my rhythm and get the mechanics down right. It's just trying to locate that fastball."

Added Yesterday 11:15 pm (EST)
The assumed ace of the Cardinals staff has been anything but early this season, failing to make it past the sixth inning in his last three trips to the mound after an excellent Opening Night start versus the Cubs. Martinez has had trouble consistently harnessing his fastball and also experienced control problems in the first inning during his last two starts, issuing six free passes and allowing four runs to the 15 hitters he's faced in the opening frames of that pair of games. There's been some speculation that Martinez's participation in the World Baseball Classic could have had a negative carryover effect, although manager Mike Matheny largely dismisses the notion, noting that the 25-year-old would have gotten about the same amount of work had he remained with the team during the spring. He'll try to begin righting the ship in a Tuesday home start versus the Blue Jays.
Aledmys Diaz Headshot

Diaz hit a solo home run in the seventh inning as a pinch hitter during Saturday's win over Milwaukee.

Added Yesterday 11:10 pm (EST)
Diaz burst onto the scene as a freshman, and he outproduced expectations based on his pedigree. However, he's already up to four home runs and is a key cog for the Cardinals. The risk of a sophomore slump still looms, but more of the same from Diaz could put that concern to rest in a hurry.
Evan Longoria Headshot

Longoria went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI during Saturday's win over Houston.

Added Yesterday 10:58 pm (EST)
It's been a solid start to the campaign for the veteran, as Longoria has nine runs, three home runs and 12 RBI with a .250/.337/.444 slash line. While it might be difficult to repeat his 2016 numbers, he's locked in as a worthy starter at the hot corner in the majority of fantasy settings. Longoria is also sporting an active 7-for-17 stretch with four extra-base hits and six RBI over his past four games.
