Justin Morneau (neck) is back in the Rockies' starting lineup Tuesday.

The Orioles traded Alejandro De Aza to the Red Sox on Wednesday.

With Allen Craig back in the minors, Shane Victorino perpetually on the DL and Rusney Castillo and Mookie Betts struggling to produce and stay healthy, De Aza can slot in nicely as a fourth or fifth outfielder. He's not a world-beater by any means, but he can be a decent guy to slot in there when you need someone. Analysis: Howard Bender

Richard Sherman opted for rest over surgery on his injured left elbow, damaged when he hyperextended it towards the end of the NFC title game. The rehab seems to be doing the trick, as the All-Pro corner has been a full participant in OTAs.

All of that sounds great for Sherman and the Seahawks. Of course, we need to see how he fares in a full-contact environment. He's not dishing out or taking the usual physical punishment that makes him one of the top corners out there, so while it's good that he's been healthy, he still needs to test out in full-contact work. Analysis: Howard Bender

The Brewers recalled Shane Peterson from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Peterson will help provide some depth for a banged-up Brewers outfield. He may not see much in the way of playing time, but he could be a nice bat off the bench for them. Fantasy-wise though, there's not much happening here. Analysis: Howard Bender

The Brewers optioned Tyler Cravy to Triple-A Colorado Springs Wednesday.

As expected, this was a one-and-done for Cravy who had a nice showing against the Cardinals as he allowed just one run over seven innings with six strikeouts. He should be back whenever the Brewers need another spot start, or if any injury occurs. Analysis: Howard Bender

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who played at around 190 pounds last season, bulked up to 208 pounds during the offseason.

We'll have to see if carrying that extra weight is going to affect his speed at all. It should make him tougher in the physical aspect of his job, but if he can't keep pace, the strength isn't going to matter much. Analysis: Howard Bender

Marvin Jones (ankle/foot) participated in Tuesday's practice.

Jones has missed a significant amount of time over the last two seasons due to the foot and ankle issues he's been having. The Bengals would love to have him working opposite A.J. Green and start drawing some coverage his way, but it's just a matter of keeping him healthy. Analysis: Howard Bender

Antone Smith (leg) returned to practice Tuesday.

Smith was still recovering from his broken leg and wasn't quite ready for the start of OTAs. The fact that he's back now is encouraging and will keep him in the conversation as the Falcons look to solidify their backfield. Analysis: Howard Bender

Damarious Randall (ankle) was practicing at cornerback Tuesday.

The ankle injury is not considered serious at all, so look for Randall to continue working through it. His talent and versatility has him able to play any role in the secondary, so while he's potentially locking down a starting cornerback job, he could move into the middle if necessary. Analysis: Howard Bender

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Tuesday that the earliest Dorial Green-Beckham (hamstring) will return to OTAs is Thursday.

The Titans obviously don;t want to push too hard on a hamstring issue, so they'll hold Green-Beckham out just to play it safe. He'll return to OTAs soon enough and still has all of minicamp and training camp to work. Analysis: Howard Bender

Sio Moore (hip) has taken part in portions of team drills but hasn't received clearance for contact as of last week.

Last season, his second year in the league, Moore had 89 tackles, three sack s and one forced fumble prior to the hip injury he suffered in Week 14. He is slightly ahead of schedule in his recovery right now, so he'll bide his time until he receives full medical clearance. He should be ready for training camp at the latest and will likely hold down a starting job this season once again. Analysis: Howard Bender

The Colts have signed Sean McGrath.

McGrath will simply compete for a reserve job as both Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen command the top two spots already. Analysis: Howard Bender

Justin Masterson (shoulder) will make his next rehabilitation start Friday for Double-A Portland.

Masterson's first rehab outing didn't go so well as he allowed three runs over 1 2/3 innings and reached his 50-pitch limit before he could close out the second frame. If he doesn't show improvement here, they may slow everything down on him and start breaking down his mechanics a little more to find the root of his possible issues. Of course, he could just be that bad of a pitcher and nothing is going to save him.  Analysis: Howard Bender

Manager Ryne Sandberg said Freddy Galvis needs to get back to the shortened swing that was driving his early-season success.

Galvis went from batting .355 with a 6.1-percent strikeout rate in April to a .237 average and a 19.8-percent strikeout rate in May. He did increase his walk rate so it's not impatience we're dealing with here. If Galvis' mechanics at the plate have grown lax, he can certainly tighten things up and be a better hitter. Of course, he was likely hitting over his head a little to start the season, so perhaps the team is just looking for a happy medium here. Analysis: Howard Bender

Brandon Crawford went 2-for-4 with a hone run, two RBI and a run scored against the Pirates on Tuesday.

Crawford continues to have himself a solid season as he is now slashing .297/.369/.511 with eight home runs and 36 RBI through his first 182 at-bats. Considering he is a career .248 hitter, a return to the mean could be in store for the Giants shortstop, but as long as he continues to flash the power bat he is a must-start in all fantasy formats.  Analysis: Matthew Beck
