FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

The Dallas Cowboys will look to restructure QB Tony Romo's contract this offseason.

Salary cap issues are always in the forefront of the offseason plans for any NFL franchise. If the Cowboys can free up some cap room, that would bode well for their recovery from a disappointing 2013.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson

Hisashi Iwakuma (lat strain) will get another MRI to get a better look at his ailment.

The severity of the strain isn't currently clear, so hopefully another MRI will reveal some more details about the injury as well as his timetable, which has yet to be established. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Cubs at Reds has officially been postponed.

The game will be rescheduled to a later date, with Jake Arrieta starting on Sunday over Travis Wood and Anthony Desclafani starting instead of Jason Marquis. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Danny Santana is not in the Twins' starting lineup on Saturday.

Santana hasn't been doing very well to start the year, and still has yet to take a walk at the plate. Eduardo Escobar will hit eighth and play shortstop, but Santana should continue to see most of the playing time despite his offensive struggles. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Oswaldo Arcia is not in the Twins' starting lineup on Saturday.

Eduardo Nunez will take over in left field and hit sixth, though he is not a significant threat to Arcia's playing time. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Brandon League (shoulder) is playing catch from 60 feet in the early stages of his throwing program.

League should be able to start throwing off a mound in early-May, and a late-May return to the Dodgers bullpen is possible. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Christian Bethancourt is not in the Braves' starting lineup on Saturday.

A.J. Pierzynski will play over Bethancourt, and although Bethancourt is a better defensive catcher, he has not done very well at the plate and will likely continue to see less playing time than Pierzynski for the time being.  Analysis: Ben Diamond

Chris Iannetta is not in the Angels' starting lineup on Saturday.

Iannetta will take a seat in favor of Drew Butera, who will be batting eighth. Iannetta will see the bulk of playing time and is a decent second catcher in two-C formats. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Matt Harrison (back) has passed his bullpen test and will throw live batting practice Monday.

Harrison is recovering from major back surgery, but things have gone well thus far. He's still a ways away from returning, and the Rangers will take it very slow with Harrison, though he could be up with the big league club possibly by late-March at best. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Michael Saunders has returned to the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Saturday.

Saunders has been out since March due to knee surgery, but should be good to go now. He may not see as much playing time as fantasy owners want, but he's still a solid power/speed threat who is worth owning in most leagues. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Domonic Brown (Achilles) said he expects to play his final rehab game with Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday or Monday.

Brown should be able to return next week to the team, and will likely be the team's starting right or left fielder, though he doesn't have much fantasy value. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Trevor Bauer (scratched due to illness Saturday) is tentatively scheduled to start on Tuesday.

In Bauer's place, T.J. House faced the Tigers on Saturday, and took the loss. It remains to be seen if Bauer will miss more than the one start of Saturday, or if this illness will interfere with a second scheduled start. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup on Saturday.

Puig already had a hamstring issue, and re-injured it Friday night. At this point he should be considered day-to-day. Saturday the Dodgers will go with an outfield of Andre Ethier in right, Joc Pederson in center and Carl Crawford in left. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Red Sox placed Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list.

Victorino was nursing a sore hamstring, and had hoped that he could avoid a DL trip. Matt Barnes was recalled from Pawtucket to replace him on the roster. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
