Lakers guard Nick Young is out at least 2 weeks after MRI shows he has a non-displaced fracture and bone bruise in left knee.
The Lakers have resigned Shawne Williams to a 10-day contract who will back up Wes Johnson at the small forward position in place of the injured Nick Young. Williams contributions will likely be inconsistent with Johnson getting the biggest bump in value, enough that he should now be owned in 12 team or deeper leagues. Young will be re-evaluated in two weeks, so this does not mean he will necessarily be back at the two week mark, but if you can at least stash Young until then.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Angels recalled RHP Cam Bedrosian from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Mike Morin has been mediocre (putting it nicely) working in middle-relief for the Angels this season, posting a 6.00 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and a 13/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 20 appearances. Relief Pitcher Cam Bedrosian has been recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake, where he has posted a 3.15 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 27/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 20 innings pitched, to take Morin's spot in the bullpen.

Wilson Ramos is not in the Nationals starting lineup on Sunday.
This appears to be a routine day off for the Nationals starting Catcher (nothing out of the ordinary in a Sunday afternoon game), but the timing may provide Ramos an opportunity to break out of the mini-slump that he's in. After stringing together a 19-game hit-streak, Ramos has gone 0-for-11 in his last three games. Jose Lobaton, who is 1-for-8 in his career against opposing starting pitcher Aaron Harang, will get the start in Ramos' absence. Analysis: Brad Costilo
