Fantasy Player Updates & News

Bills will likely put Stevie Johnson on the trade block if they take a wide receiver early.

Johnson had just 597 receiving yards with three touchdowns last season, his first season in four years where he caught fewer than 1,000 yards. On top of that, there are reports that he and new coach Doug Marrone don't see eye-to-eye and that the new coaching staff is questioning Johnson's commitment to the team. Obviously both sides are denying the rift, but we'll see what happens Thursday when they Bills are on the clock for the NFL draft.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Joe Ortiz has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A Iowa.

After being designated for assignment this past Sunday, Ortiz will return to Triple-A Iowa. The diminutive lefty has a nice 3.38 ERA across 10 2/3 innings at that level this season. Analysis: Nate Miller

Juan Uribe is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Tuesday.

Uribe will give way to Justin Turner at the hot corner Tuesday night, as the Dodgers get set for a matchup with Matt Garza and the Brewers.  Analysis: Nate Miller

Dodgers announce Joe Wieland will start on Thursday.

With both Hyun-Jin Ryu, Brandon McCarthy and Brandon Beachy all out of the rotation with injuries, the Dodgers are trying to piece things together with the pitching staff right now. Wieland looks like the next man up, as the young righty will square off with the Brewers on Thursday afternoon. Analysis: Nate Miller

Jose Reyes says he's feeling much better Tuesday and was hoping to have MRI in the next day or two on his cracked rib.

It seems that Reyes is progressing well in his recovery. The veteran shortstop has been out since April 27th and expected back in early June. Analysis: Nate Miller

Catcher Yan Gomes was coming out of crouch while working on the field prior to Tuesday's games.

Gomes (knee) was not expected to make a return to the Indians' lineup until closer to the end of May, but appears to be a bit ahead of schedule. The 27-year-old catcher has been out since April 11th.  Analysis: Nate Miller

Manager Ryan Sandberg said Chase Utley will likely be out the lineup Wednesday as well as Tuesday.

Utley has simply had a horrible time of it in the box so far this season, and will now receive some time off. The six-time All-Star is just 9-for-87 with a dreadful .207 slugging percentage over 25 games to this point. Cesar Hernandez will man second base in place of Utley. Analysis: Nate Miller
