Bobcats head coach Steve Clifford made it clear Monday's home game against the Toronto Raptors will be the first one missed in Walker's 190-game NBA career.
As we previously reported, X-Rays came back negative and Walker is likely to have an MRI on Sunday, but Clifford has already decided that Walker will not play in their next game on Monday, which upgrades Ramon Sessions' value for however long Walker is out.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Indians recalled P Austin Adams from Triple-A Columbus.
Adams will take the roster spot of Scott Atchison, who was placed on the disabled list on Thursday. The 28-year-old reliever owns a 5.40 ERA at Triple-A Columbus, but has shown the ability to rack up strikeouts as evident by his 14.0 K/9 this year. The Indians are likely to use him in the middle innings. Analysis: David Kerr
Indians placed Carlos Santana on the paternity list.
Santana is going to miss a few days while on the paternity list, so be sure to remove him from your fantasy lineup. He can miss up to three days, though it is unknown whether he will use the allotted amount of time. Jerry Sands was called up to take Santana's place on the Indians roster. Analysis: David Kerr
Leonys Martin is not in the Rangers starting lineup on Thursday.
Martin is struggling across the board this season to the tune of a .215 average, so he will take a seat against the Red Sox on Thursday night. It's worth noting that Martin is actually hitting lefties (.245) better than righties (.198), but the team feels as though batting Delino DeShields Jr. in the leadoff spot against a lefty will benefit them overall. Martin will be back in the lineup over the weekend. Analysis: David Kerr
White Sox recalled RHP Chris Beck from Triple-A Charlotte.
As is often the case with a doubleheader, the White Sox needed a spot start, so they are giving the ball to Chris Beck. The 24-year-old prospect doesn't have elite minor league numbers and actually has posted a paltry 5.5 K/9 rate over four minor league seasons. Beck will face off against Mike Wright on Thursday night, so this should be a relatively high scoring game for those of you that are looking to stack in DFS games. Analysis: David Kerr
