Update: Jean Segura's issue was his left quadriceps and he will be re-evaluated in the morning. 

Segura had been taken out of the game with what was initially called a cramp but this update seems slightly more ominous. Segura owners should continue to follow Fantasy Alarm to see his status for tomorrows game.ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba

Jake Marisnick (hamstring) is scheduled to return from the disabled list on Sunday.

Marisnick was not burning up the league when he hit the DL, but his hamstring seems to be OK, considering the triple he legged out Friday for Triple-A El Paso. He will likely return to platooning in center field with Colby Rasmus, and as the right-handed hitting side of that platoon, will be on the short-end of the rotation. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Rodney Hood (sore shoulder) did not practice on Saturday.

No word on the severity of his injury from the team or player yet. If his shoulder is an issue, he could miss the start of the Summer League, which opens on Monday against the Celtics summer squad. He is looking to build on a solid rookie season, where he averaged 21.3 minutes in 50 games, with 8.7 points, 1.7 assists, 2.3 rebounds, and 1.2 three-pointers. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Sonny Gray (illness) is throwing a bullpen session on Saturday.

The word from Gray is that he is not going to end up on the DL. Oakland is projecting Gray as their starting pitcher for Tuesday's contest against the Yankees in New York. He has missed significant time recovering from a salmonella poisoning incident. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Ladarius Green is expected to be the starting tight end for the Chargers with Antonio Gates suspended for the first four games of the season.

That simply makes sense. The Chargers keep saying they want to get Green more involved with the offense, and Gates missing four games will give them every opportunity to see what he can provide. Do not get carried away on draft day, however, as his expanded role may shrink dramatically once Gates is back in uniform. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Dennis Pitta (hip) has not been cleared to practice at this point and could begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Or he could end up retiring from the NFL. He did participate in individual drills during the OTAs, but with no contact in practice, his potential for returning as a productive NFL tight end is seriously in doubt at present. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Jeremy Hill said he wanted to build up the strength in his legs this offseason in hopes of improving his acceleration.

The Bengals used Giovanni Bernard as their change-of-pace back last season. Hill is more of a bruiser power back, so improving his ability to make tacklers miss with some additional speed and movement will just make him more valuable in the run-oriented Cincinnati offense. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Tommy Pham is leading off for the Cardinals on Saturday.

Pham is playing center field on Saturday, after going 0-for-3 Friday night. Remember that Jon Jay and Peter Bourjos are still on the Cardinal roster, so despite the back-to-back starts this weekend, do not plan on him becoming an everyday fixture in the St. Louis lineup. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Mike Zunino is not in the Mariners starting lineup on Saturday.

Jesus Sucre is going to serve as the backstop for the Mariners on Saturday afternoon. The A's have a right hander on the mound in Kendall Graveman, and with Saturday's contest being an afternoon game following a night game on Friday, the swap at catcher makes sense. Sucre will bat ninth. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Mavericks are firmly in the mix for free agent point guard Jeremy Lin.

In addition to Dallas, reports are that Kings, Knicks and Clippers have an interest in signing the point guard. Lin struggled with the Lakers last season, averaging 11.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 4.6 assists and starting just 30 of the 74 games he played last season in LA. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Bismack Biyombo has agreed to a two-year, $6 million deal with the Toronto Raptors.

Biyombo left Charlotte, where he played in 64 games last season, averaging just over 19 minutes in those contests. He was going to be a reserve at best with the changes the Hornets made this off-season, bringing in Spencer Hawes and rookie Frank Kaminsky. He comes cheap for the salary cap stressed Raptors and will provide good front court defense in a limited role off the bench. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Brandon Morrow threw 40 pitches in the bullpen Saturday and will throw a simulated game next week with rehab stint to follow.

Depending on how the simulated game goes next week, the Padres may have him do a second before sending him out on assignment. It's a wait-and-see thing for right now, but it looks like he should return sometime soon after the All Star break. Analysis: Howard Bender

Michael Bourn is not in the Indians starting lineup on Saturday.

Bourn has been sitting against lefties for most of the year so this isn't a surprise with the Indians facing southpaw Jeff Locke. Michael Brantley moves over to center while Mike Aviles gets some time in left. Analysis: Howard Bender

David Murphy is not in the Indians starting lineup on Saturday.

Well, with a left-hander on the mound and no DH in an NL park, what did you expect? He'll be back soon enough, but you'll have to endure this interleague nuisance again. Analysis: Howard Bender

Mariners reinstated LHP David Rollins from the restricted list.

The lefty was suspended 80 games for testing positive for the anabolic steroid stanozolol. What exactly the Mariners will do with him now is not yet known, but fantasy owners really don't need to be concerned here. Analysis: Howard Bender
