Derek Jeter is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Thursday.

With a day game following a night game, Jeter will get the afternoon off to rest. We've seen this done already this season so this shouldn't be much of a surprise. Brendan Ryan is playing shortstop Thursday and batting in his usual ninth spot.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Rick Carlisle said the Mavericks are going to err on the side of caution while bringing Wesley Matthews back from his torn Achilles.

This is hardly a surprise, considering the Mavericks spent a lot of money to lure Matthews to Dallas as a free agent. They are right to want to protect their investment. This should serve as a reminder to fantasy players not to expect a heavy workload for Wesley Matthews, especially early on. Analysis: Steve Pimental

The Mariners optioned Jose Ramirez to the minors following Monday's game.

Ramirez was recalled Friday but did not make an appearance before getting sent back down. Ramirez has 56 strikeouts and a 2.90 ERA in 49 2/3 innings at Triple-A this season. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Paul George will attend USA Basketball's mandatory minicamp next week, but will not play.

George missed nearly all of last season after suffering a gruesome injury in a scrimmage while preparing for the 2014 FIBA World Cup. By attending the minicamp, George will be eligible for the 2016 Olympic Team. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Dan Straily will start Tuesday against the Rangers.

Mike Fiers was scheduled to start Tuesday, but he threw five innings in relief Monday after starter Lance McCullers failed to get out of the first inning. Straily has a 3.65 ERA and 3.71 FIP in 98 2/3 innings at Triple-A this season, but considering his struggles at the big league level, the Rangers are an intriguing stack for DFS Tuesday. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Lonnie Chisenhall left Monday's game with a neck strain/whiplash after diving for a ball in right field.

Chisenhall had started four consecutive games in right field, but that streak is most likely at an end. Tyler Hold will likely go back to starting in right field against righties, though Ryan Raburn and Mike Aviles could get the occasional start there as well. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Logan Morrison (thumb) took batting practice prior to Monday's game.

While Morrison continues to work his way back from this thumb ailment, he may be find himself on the bench upon his return. Jesus Montero has played well in his absence, and the team could elect to continue to run Montero out there while he is swinging the hot bat. Analysis: Colby Conway
