Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders said center Nikola Pekovic is finally feeling pain-free after dealing with a sore ankle at the end of the season.
Pekovic is expected to be a staple in the Timberwolves starting lineup for years to come and may become the focal point of the team's offense if they were to lose Kevin Love to free agency this off-season. As long as he enters next season with a full bill of health, he will remain a top 10 fantasy option at the center position. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Padres recall INF Jedd Gyorko from Triple-A El Paso.
Gyorko will fill in at second for the injured Corey Spangenberg as he heads to the DL. Gyorko was sent down a couple of weeks ago after a very rough start to the season for the Padres. During his stint in Triple-A he appears to have gotten somethings worked out as he's hit .279 with four homers, 9 RBIs, and 8 R in just 16 games. In 46 games with the big club this season he's hitting .210 with two home runs, 11 RBI, and 9 runs scored. Analysis: Matt Selz
GM Brian Cashman says the Yankees are not considering removing CC Sabathia from the rotation.
A 3-8 record on the year and a troubling 5.65 ERA is what is bringing up the questions about Sabathia's stay in the rotation. The Yankees briefly went to a six man rotation with Nova coming back from the DL, but have decided to move Adam Warren out to the pen, where he was dominating last season, and keep Sabathia in the rotation. Sabathia's last start was solid but no run support did not help his cause. It will be interesting to see what New York does going forward and whether they seek a starter at the trade deadline.
