J.J. Hardy is not in the Orioles' starting lineup on Friday.
Hardy (back) thought that he would be able to return Friday, but obviously the trainers saw something they didn't like and opted to hold him out for another day. This will be the fifth-straight game that he's missed, although they haven't ruled him out as a potential bat off the bench just yet. The Orioles will continue with the same infield configuration they've used since Hardy first went down.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The Raiders could be interested in free agent wide receiver Randall Cobb.
Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie drafted Cobb in his final year as the Packers' Director of Player Personnel. McKenzie apparently wants to reunite Cobb with his former mentor James Jones, who signed with the Raiders last offseason and was the team's most consistent receiver throughout the 2014 season. The question is, would the Raiders be able to convince Cobb to sign with them? They'll likely need to comfortably outbid the next highest bidder to earn rights to his services. If this scenario were to actually come to fruition, Derek Carr would get a nice boost in fantasy value. Analysis: Spencer Silva
