FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Update: Dwyane Wade is now officially out for the game with back spasms.

Daniel Nava is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

Allen Craig is in right and Hanley Ramirez has returned to his usual spot in left field. Ramirez hits cleanup and Craig is slotted in at the seventh position in the order against the Orioles in Baltimore. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Pirates have transferred INF Justin Sellers to a rehab stint at Triple-A Indianapolis.

Sellers has no minor league options left. That makes for an interesting situation given that the Pirates have a full slate at infield presently. Stay tuned for possible roster moves once his rehab assignment is completed. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Blue Jays have released P Ricky Romero.

Romero's last effective years as a MLB quality pitcher were in 2010-11. Since then he has ben injured or awful. Do not keep him on your fantansy radar. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Jake McGee said his bullpen session Saturday went well. He said if he feels good Sunday he should pitch at Class A Charlotte on Tuesday.

The Rays have to be hoping for him to return to the active roster soon. He probably would not require more than a few rehab appearances before being activated. Whether he immediately steps back into the closer role is not clear right now. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Mark Trumbo is not in the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Saturday.

Trumbo will sit in favor of Ender Inciarte Saturday against the Pirates. Inciarte will bat leadoff and play in right. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Brett Oberholtzer pitched three innings in his extended spring training game Saturday. He looked and felt good.

He was cleared to face hitters earlier in the week. With this successful effort behind him, expect him to be cleared for a minor league rehab start soon. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Coach Kevin McHale said Dwight Howard felt good Saturday morning and told him to have a light day and just shoot free throws.

Howard has been dominant in the post-season so far. He grabbed 26 rebounds with three assists, two steals, and two blocks in 38 minutes of action in Friday's Game Three against the Mavs. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Jose Bautista remains out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Saturday.

There is still concern that Bautista may require a DL stint. This does mark his fourth consecutive game out of the lineup. Michael Saunders will handle right field and bat 7th Saturday. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
