Amir Johnson Headshot

Updating a previous reports, Johnson (shoulder) will be available off the bench for Game 4 against the Cavaliers on Tuesday, David Aldridge of reports.

It sounds like Johnson will be available in an emergency situation, but it wouldn't be surprising if he was held out for the entire contest as originally expected while he deals with a AC joint sprain in his right shoulder. Kelly Olynyk has already been announced as a starter and should see an uptick in minutes, while Jonas Jerebko is also likely to see more playing time off the bench in the frontcourt.

Dylan Strome Headshot

Strome posted four goals and three assists in OHL Erie's 12-5 drubbing of QMJHL Saint John in Memorial Cup action on Monday.

Strome's seven points were the most in a single game in the 99-year history of the Memorial Cup. Tampa Bay prospect Taylor Raddysh "chipped in" two goals and four assists. Erie will now play host Windsor on Wednesday with a trip directly to championship game on the line. As for Strome, he will be playing in the NHL with the Coyotes next season and he should be worthy of a roster spot in deeper redraft leagues. He is obviously an elite option in all keeper/dynasty formats.

Mike Ohlman Headshot

Ohlman accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A Buffalo, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.

The Blue Jays designated Ohlman for assignment over the weekend, and after passing through waivers, he'll return to the organization at the Triple-A level. Now that Ohlman is off the 40-man roster, he's unlikely to be called back up anytime soon unless Russell Martin or Luke Maile land on the disabled list.

Colin White Headshot

White will make his NHL playoff debut during Tuesday night's Game 6 against the Penguins.

White has just 27:25 total ice time of experience in two career NHL games, but with the Senators' backs against the wall and nothing working for them in their Game 5 collapse, they must see something in the 20-year-old that they feel can help their chances Tuesday. White is slated to center the fourth line with Viktor Stalberg and Ryan Dzingel on his wings.
8:09 pm (EST)
Grégory Polanco Headshot

The Pirates are unsure whether Polanco (hamstring), who is eligible to return from the disabled list Thursday, will need a rehab assignment, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Polanco will attempt to run the bases at full speed Wednesday. If things go well, then he could come off the DL on Thursday. Manager Clint Hurdle said he hasn't decided whether Polanco will need a rehab stint. In a positive development, the outfielder took batting practice prior to Tuesday's tilt.
8:02 pm (EST)
Phil Hughes Headshot

Hughes (shoulder) was sent for an MRI on Tuesday, Phil Miller of the Star Tribune reports.

Though the results of the MRI have yet to be released, the Twins have already scheduled Hughes for more tests Wednesday. The veteran landed on the disabled list Sunday with biceps tendinitis and he does have a history of shoulder issues, including a nerve issue that required season-ending surgery last year. More information on Hughes' outlook will be made available after Wednesday's battery of tests.
8:01 pm (EST)
Chris Taylor Headshot

Taylor is getting close to seeing some starts in the outfield, David Vassegh of AM 570 in Los Angeles reports.

Injuries around the Dodger infield have allowed Taylor to see some regular playing time of late, but Logan Forsythe's return means that Taylor will start seeing some starts in the outfield. Taylor has reportedly been working hard on getting acclimated to playing outfield and the Dodgers believe he's close to being game-ready out there. By keeping Taylor in the lineup, the Dodgers are keeping a right-handed bat in the lineup that has crushed lefties to this point in the season with a .440 batting average and a 1.29 OPS.
7:36 pm (EST)
A.J. Pollock Headshot

Manager Torey Tolullo said Tuesday that Pollock (groin) may not need to go on a rehab assignment before returning from the disabled list, Jack Magruder of FanRag Sports reports.

Pollock progressed to hitting in the cage Tuesday, and it appears that his progress has convinced Tovullo that a rehab assignment might not be necessary. It was reported last week that Pollock was unlikely to be ready when he's eligible to come off the DL, and while that still may be the case, an early June activation could be in the realm of possibility. Look for Gregor Blanco and Reymond Fuentes to continue seeing regular playing time in center while Pollock is sidelined.
7:10 pm (EST)
Kelly Olynyk Headshot

Olynyk will enter the starting five for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Cavaliers on Tuesday, Jay King of reports.

Amir Johnson is expected to miss Tuesday's game with a shoulder injury, so coach Brad Stevens has opted to go with Olynyk as his replacement in the top unit. Olynyk has averaged just 15.7 minutes over the first three games of the series, but should push for a much bigger role during Game 4. Jonas Jerebko also figures to see an uptick in minutes in the frontcourt off the bench.
