The Lakers interviewed Byron Scott for vacant head coaching position on Tuesday.
Should the Lakers hire Scott he would bring with him a strong rooted understanding of the history of success of the organization, something he was a part of for most of his playing career. Scott is known as a player's coach, is reportedly friends with Kobe Bryant, and maybe even more importantly, he has maintained a positive relationship with his former star guard when he was the coach of the Cavs in Kyrie Irving who is scheduled to become a restricted free agent at the end of next season.

Hector Sanchez left Thursday's game after taking a foul tip to the neck.
We should get a better idea on Friday if this injury is serious or not, but even a brief absence could set Sanchez back in his roster battle with Andrew Susac. Susac is younger, and a better hitter and he could be useful in NL-only or if the Giants decide to play Buster Posey more at first base. Sanchez will never have much fantasy value regardless of role though he would probably be better for San Francisco's pitchers. Analysis: Steve Pimental
Ross Ohlendorf left Thursday's game with tightness in his right groin.
This isn't good news for Ohlendorf, especially after he's pitched so well this spring. Given his success, it seems as though the only way that he will be left off of the Rangers' Opening Day roster is if he is out for an extended period of time or has a setback. He will likely fill a long reliever role for Texas with the chance to make an occasional spot start. Analysis: David Kerr
