Homer Bailey will have surgery Friday to repair torn tendon in right forearm.

If you didn't think Bailey's season was officially over, take this as a sure-sign that it is. There hasn't been a timetable set for his recovery, but there is a distinct possibility that it could affect his status for the start of spring training. We'll wait until the doctors get in there and assess the damage though before assigning value to Bailey for 2015.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Josh Hamilton is expected to be out of the lineup again Wednesday due to a hamstring issue.

And so it goes with good ol' Josh Hamilton. He plays for six-straight games and is already out with a hamstring issue. No word on the extent of the injury, but this will make two days in a row he's missed because of it. Consider him day-to-day while Delino DeShields, Jr. likely fills in. Analysis: Howard Bender

Update: Red Sox recall LHP Robbie Ross Jr. from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Ross will be used out of the bullpen as the 26th man for Wednesday's doubleheader. He'll end up back down in the minors before the day is over. Analysis: Howard Bender

Tommy Milone will be recalled to start on Thursday.

With the doubleheader Wednesday, the Twins are in need of an extra starter this week, so they'll turn to the southpaw to face the Red Sox, a team that struggles against lefties to the tune of a .248 batting average and .290 wOBA. He's been pitching extremely well at Triple-A lately -- 0.76 ERA with a 47:3 K:BB over 38 1/3 innings in five starts -- and could be a nice sleeper in DFS play. Analysis: Howard Bender

Jets TE Jace Amaro tweaked his back on a pass route in Wednesday's practice.

No word on the severity of said tweak, but obviously that's not a good thing. Amaro was looking to step into a bigger role this year and the Jets would love to offer him up as a steady receiving option for whomever ends up as the team's quarterback, so keep an eye on this to make sure it's not too serious or will end up being a lingering issue. Analysis: Howard Bender

Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers starting lineup Wednesday.

After going just 3-for-19 (.158) over his last four games, Braun will get a day off Wednesday. He will be available off the bench, but Shane Peterson will take over in left field while Gerardo Parra works in right. Analysis: Howard Bender

Aramis Ramirez is not in the Brewers starting lineup Wednesday.

Ramirez is in the midst of a 1-for-17 slump over his last five games and is a career 1-for-11 against Cardinals starter John Lackey. If there was ever a time to rest his aching back, it would be now. Hector Gomez will handle the work at third Wednesday. Analysis: Howard Bender

Joe Mauer is not in the Twins starting lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's double header.

Not a big deal here as Mauer takes a set for the first game of the doubleheader. Trevor Plouffe will move across the diamond to first while Eduardo Escobar handles the work at third. Mauer will most likely be in the lineup for the second game though as, surprisingly, there is no injury reported. Analysis: Howard Bender

Percy Harvin is not at Bills practice Wednesday.

There's no word yet as to why Harvin isn't at practice Wednesday, but considering his lengthy injury history and propensity for missing time, this is nothing surprising. If there is an injury, you can expect the Bills to offer up an update sooner than later. Analysis: Howard Bender

Pablo Sandoval is not in the Red Sox starting lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's double header.

Considering the Red Sox just got Sandoval back into their lineup after he dealt with a lingering knee issue, they're not going to push it and have him play both ends of a double-header. Look for him to be in the lineup for the second game while Brock Holt holds down the fort for the first game. Analysis: Howard Bender

The Mets activate Dillon Gee from the 15-day disabled list.

Gee will get the starting nod for Wednesday's tilt against the Padres. It's a nice favorable match-up for him given the Padres struggle, so DFS players may want to check him out. Analysis: Howard Bender

The Reds purchased the contract of Ivan De Jesus from Triple-A Louisville.

With Marlon Byrd suffering a fractured wrist, the Reds will bring up DeJesus to provide some much-needed outfield depth. He can also handle the infield as well so there's some versatility to go with it. It's too early to tell how much playing time he'll actually see, but with Byrd out until August, he could be up for a while. Analysis: Howard Bender

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
