Stewart's meteoric rise through the Dodgers system will be completed on Wednesday when he makes his Major League debut against the Brewers in Milwaukee. The 24-year-old has made his way from Single-A all the way up to the big leagues in the span of three months, which is an incredible accomplishment. The Dodgers rotation is in desperate need of healthy arms, but Stewart is far more than just a nameless fill-in who's expected to tread water. He has a fastball that sits between 92-96, occasionally getting up to 98 miles per hour, and he also has a decent changeup and a formidable slider. All eyes will be on him on Wednesday as he makes his debut, and he could stick around for a while if he hits the ground running.
The reigning sixth man of the year seems to have plenty of teams interested in procuring his services, which makes sense seeing that he averaged 14.2 points per game coming off the bench last season. The 36-year-old could potentially be leaning towards a return to the Knicks, where he played for four years earlier in his career. Crawford said that he really enjoyed his time in New York, but he's keeping his options open for the time being. The Clippers can offer him the most money due to the fact that they have his Bird Rights, but it looks like he could be leaving Los Angeles.
Durant is expected to meet with the Clippers, Spurs, Thunder, Heat and Celtics this this weekend and it looks like his current/former team is going to get the first chance to pitch him a reason to stay in OKC. Of course the biggest asset that OKC has is the ability to offer him more money on a max deal than any other team can due to the CBA.
Hamilton was attempting to make a play in the outfield when left fielder Adam Duvall crossed in front of him and shielded Hamilton from the fly ball that missed his glove and struck him in the face. Hamilton will likely be checked for a concussion and his status will be updated by the team at some point.
