Updates & News
James Harden (elbow) is good to go for Sunday's game vs. the Suns.
There was some concern that he was going to miss this game after hyper extending his elbow in the previous game.He has struggled vs Phoenix this season by shooting 26% from the field and averaging 18.5 points, 3 rebounds, 1.5 assist in two games. Start him in all season long leagues, but be cautious using him for daily lineups.ANALYST: Mark Kaplan
Eduardo Rodriguez will start Thursday in Texas for the Red Sox.
The Red Sox were considering bringing Rodriguez up in late April when Wade Miley was struggling but now they may consider him a potential replacement for the nightmare that is Joe Kelly. He'll start Thursday to stay on his regular throwing schedule and this may only be a spot start/audition, but keep an eye on him especially if there's a chance he joins the rotation.

Wil Myers (wrist) is improving but not close to returning.
It's not so much that he isn't close to returning, it's that the Padres are being very cautious with him and have not set a timetable for him to start swinging a bat. Once he does start, it might not be too long before he lands on a rehab assignment. The team is hoping for an early-to-mid June return, but we'll just have to wait and see. Analysis: Howard Bender
Adrian Peterson is not at Vikings' OTA's Wednesday.
There are a few moving parts here. First off, he's not at OTAs because he is unhappy with the fact that the team did not support him last season and he is either pushing for a trade or a renegotiated contract with guaranteed money beyond the 2015 season. The team has already stated that they won't trade him and it seems unlikely that they would give him a new deal prior to him sitting all of last season. While Peterson is not required to be at OTAs, he does receive a bonus if he is present for 90-percent of the OTA activities. That, apparently, is not enough of an incentive or a cure for his hurt feelings. We should see some nice drama here in the offseason, but he is still going to play and be an every-down back for the Vikings this year. Analysis: Howard Bender
