Monday has been loosely mentioned as the day Carmelo Anthony will make his decision.
Ha, that basically means nothing to me as Melo could make a decision Monday, but could also wait a few more days. From what I have read, the Lakers and Knicks are the two main teams he is deciding between. A lot of teams are waiting on Melo and Lebron to sign with a team before they sign other free agents. It would be a devastating blow to the Knickerbockers if Melo chooses the Lakers over them. ANALYST: Mark Kaplan
Indians recalled P Austin Adams from Triple-A Columbus.
Adams will take the roster spot of Scott Atchison, who was placed on the disabled list on Thursday. The 28-year-old reliever owns a 5.40 ERA at Triple-A Columbus, but has shown the ability to rack up strikeouts as evident by his 14.0 K/9 this year. The Indians are likely to use him in the middle innings. Analysis: David Kerr
Indians placed Carlos Santana on the paternity list.
Santana is going to miss a few days while on the paternity list, so be sure to remove him from your fantasy lineup. He can miss up to three days, though it is unknown whether he will use the allotted amount of time. Jerry Sands was called up to take Santana's place on the Indians roster. Analysis: David Kerr
Leonys Martin is not in the Rangers starting lineup on Thursday.
Martin is struggling across the board this season to the tune of a .215 average, so he will take a seat against the Red Sox on Thursday night. It's worth noting that Martin is actually hitting lefties (.245) better than righties (.198), but the team feels as though batting Delino DeShields Jr. in the leadoff spot against a lefty will benefit them overall. Martin will be back in the lineup over the weekend. Analysis: David Kerr
