Ben Simmons Headshot

Ben Simmons says he plans to work on shooting and getting stronger before the start of camp.

Well, that is nothing more than what the 76ers would like to hear from the first overall pick in this year's draft. Simmons should play a predominant role for the team the first time he sets foot on the court.

David Ortiz Headshot

David Ortiz (rest) is not expected to be in the Red Sox lineup on Saturday.

Ortiz has now been in the starting lineup for five straight days and 13-of-15 days since the All-Star Break. At 40 years of age, the All-Star slugger certainly needs a bit more rest than his younger teammates. The Red Sox will go up against Angels' lefty Hector Santiago, so look for Aaron Hill and Bryce Brentz to both likely be in the lineup.

Garrett Richards Headshot

Manager Mike Scioscia said he cannot envision a scenario in which Garrett Richards pitches for the Angels this season.

Richards (elbow) has been cleared to begin throwing, but there is little chance of seeing him on a big-league mound again until 2017.

Eduardo Nunez Headshot

Eduardo Nunez has arrived in San Francisco and is available off the Giants bench Friday.

The Giants acquired Nunez earlier on Thursday in exchange for minor-league pitcher Adalberto Mejia. Nunez is likely to see quite a bit of time at third base initially, but can play several positions. The versatile 29 year old put up a .296/.325/.439 slash line with 12 homers and 27 stolen bases across 91 games for the Twins this season.

Joey Bosa Headshot

Joey Bosa did not report to Chargers camp on Friday.

Bosa, the third overall pick of this year's draft, has yet to come to a contract agreement with the Chargers and holding out of camp as a result.

Emmanuel Ogbah Headshot

Browns are looking at 2nd round pick Emmanuel Ogbah at defensive end with the season-ending injury to Des Bryant.

The plan was for Ogbah to make the transition from 4-3 defensive end at Oklahoma State to outside linebacker in Cleveland's 3-4 scheme. Now, the Browns' coaching staff is giving him a look as a 3-4 defensive end.

Robert Griffin Headshot

Robert Griffin III takes all the first-team snaps in the first day of Friday's training camp.

Well, this could be an indication that the starting quarterback spot is Griffin's for the taking. However, he will obviously have to prove himself over veteran Josh McCown.

Perry Riley Headshot

Redskins removed Perry Riley Jr. from the physically unable to perform list.

Riley missed the final five games of least season and all offseason activities for the Redskins due to a broken bone in his right foot. The 28-year-old linebacker started 46 games for Washington from 2012-'14, averaging 67 tackles and three sacks per season in that stretch.

Tyson Ross Headshot

Tyson Ross is not close to throwing off a mound.

Ross (shoulder) has been eyeing a return to the Padres' rotation in late-August. That is probably still a possibility, but at this point it would only serve just to get him some work before heading to the offseason. The 2014 N.L. All-Star has not pitched for the Padres since Opening Day.

Todd Frazier Headshot

Todd Frazier scratched from Friday's lineup.

Frazier was experiencing flu-like symptoms prior to Friday's game. He was replaced at third base by Tyler Saladino.
