Greg Oden was arrested early Thursday morning in Lawrence, Ind. after he allegedly punched a female. According to the probable cause affidavit obtained by WTHR, a witness claims to have seen the NBA free agent punch a woman in the face.
No matter how much a women may stress you out, there is no excuse for taking physical action. Hopefully for Oden this arrest won't result in him losing his job, although he is barely hanging onto it as it is. Be sure to check back to Fantasy Alarm as more information is released on this incident. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Nationals placed Stephen Strasburg on the 15-day disabled list with neck tightness.
Something had to be wrong with Strasburg, given his season-long struggles. He has not shown his usual control with his off-speed pitches and needs to get healthy to return to his expected dominant self, and the DL trip is a start in that direction. There is no hint that the neck issue has been the cause of his problems this season, but at least he gets to take some time off to be examined and hopefully set on track to pitch well again.

Grizzlies are exploring signing center Greg Oden.
Oden, the former first overall draft pick in the 2007 draft, last played for the Heat in 2014. Knee injuries have interrupted his career, limiting him to two seasons with Portland and the aforementioned time with Miami. He may decide to attend the upcoming Grizzly free agent camp in June, but nothing is in concrete yet. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
