FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Nick Swisher (knee) could be cleared to begin Minor League rehab at some point during upcoming road trip.

Swisher is expected to be ready to return to the Indians lineup when he is eligible to come off the disabled list on Wednesday, June 11th.ANALYST: Michael Pichan

Tim Tebow has reached agreement on a new deal with the Eagles, two sources said Sunday.

Oh come on now, Chip Kelly. What in the world are you doing here? Tebow and his limited skills will join Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez in the quarterback competition this summer, though it is unlikely Tebow is really being looked at the same. He's more for read options and gimmick plays; nothing more than that. Analysis: Howard Bender

Tony Allen (hamstring) will play on Sunday.

As reported earlier, Rob Fisher of Sports56 WHBQ-87.7 FM was told by Coach Dave Joerger that Allen would play and that the hamstring was strong enough for him to play. Analysis: Howard Bender

Mike Conley (foot) will play on Sunday.

As reported earlier, Rob Fisher of Sports56 WHBQ-87.7 FM was told by Coach Dave Joerger that Conley would play and that the foot was strong enough for him to play. Analysis: Howard Bender

Aaron Afflalo (shoulder) will not play on Sunday.

It was actually announced earlier that C.J. McCollum would get the start and that Afflalo was doubtful to play. This news obviously confirms it. Analysis: Howard Bender

Tony Allen (hamstring) is a game-time decision on Sunday.

While they say Allen is a game-time decision, a report from Rob Fisher of Sports56 WHBQ-87.7 FM says that coach Dave Joerger informed him that Allen would, in fact, play. He may not see the usual 25 minutes he's used to, but after missing the last nine games of the regular season, he'll take what he can get. Analysis: Howard Bender

Mike Conley (foot) is a game-time decision on Sunday.

Conley is actually expected to play according to a report from Rob Fisher of Sports56 WHBQ-87.7 FM. He was originally listed as questionable but said that he felt well enough to give it a go. Beno Udrih will go back to his usual bench role. Analysis: Howard Bender

Victor Martinez went 3-for-3 with a double, one RBI and three runs scored in Sunday’s 9-1 drubbing of the White Sox.

Martinez entered Sundays game on a 1-for-11 slide, but broke out of his mini slump in a big way. Last years second place finisher in the A.L. MVP race is at the heart of a strong lineup and a proven producer. Deploy Martinez in fantasy lineups at will unless the Tigers are playing in an N.L. park and cannot utilize a designated hitter. Analysis: Nate Miller

Yoenis Cespedes went 2-for-4 with two home runs and six RBI in Sunday’s 9-1 rout of the White Sox.

Cespedes definitely appears to be comfortable in the Tigers all-star laden lineup, as the Cuban-born outfielder is now slugging .600 with three homers, four doubles and 10 RBI over the first 12 games of the season. Cespedes should remain a strong source of power throughout the year. Analysis: Nate Miller

Shane Greene worked seven strong innings, giving up one earned run on five hits and four walks while striking out three in Sunday’s 9-1 win over the White Sox.

Greene has been brilliant over his first three starts of 2015. The young righty has allowed just two runs (one earned) on 12 hits and five walks during his 3-0 run to begin the season. Pitching at this level while being supported by the type of lineup the Tigers feature could certainly result in a big win total for Greene. He will be in search of number four Friday night versus the Indians. Analysis: Nate Miller
