Hunter Pence Headshot

Hunter Pence could return to the Giants lineup as early as Saturday.

Pence, who is recovering from hamstring surgery has had a rough go of it in rehab, but has finally been able to string some games together with no setbacks. On the year he is slashing .298/.375/.486 with seven home runs and 36 RBI. He is eyeing a return to the club this weekend, barring any additional setbacks.

Julio Jones Headshot

Julio Jones left Thursday's practice with an unidentified "tweak".

It is way too early to panic, but it is something owners and fantasy players with upcoming drafts need to follow. Coming off a year where Jones posted where Jones caught 136 passes for 1,871 yards and 8 touchdowns, he is a consensus top 4 pick, any injury talk, no matter how minor, is worth checking into. Luckily, it is the very beginning of camp.

Shane Robinson Headshot

Shane Robinson (ankle) is beginning his rehab assignment on Thursday for High-A Inland Empire.

The injury has kept Robinson out since July 5th, and barring a setback he will need a few games to get back to game speed. Robinson does not do enough to be considered in fantasy.

Ji-Man Choi Headshot

Ji-Man Choi is out of the Angels lineup on Thursday.

On the season, Choi is only hitting .175 with two home runs, in just 63 at-bats. Jefry Marte will get the start instead, facing lefty David Price. Choi does not see the field enough, or do enough when he gets the opportunity, to be a consideration in any format.

Vontaze Burfict Headshot

Bengals place Vontaze Burfict on non-football injury list.

The move is a precaution since Burfict has experienced quite a few injuries in his career. When the veteran has been able to put in a full season, he has been near the top of the IDP linebacker rankings and impacts the Bengals as a team DEF as well. If he can prove to be healthy going into week one, he could come at a discount in IDP drafts.

Matthew Reynolds Headshot

Giants have purchased the contract of Matt Reynolds from Triple-A Sacramento.

Reynolds was signed to a minor league contract with the Giants after the Diamondbacks released him in late March. He will now come up to the big league club to replace Josh Osich, who was placed on the 15-day DL on Thursday. While toiling through the minor leagues for the Giants, he hasn't allowed a run in 10 1/3 innings while allowing just four total baserunners between Double- and Triple-A. He will be a middle relief option for Bruce Bochy.

Josh Osich Headshot

Josh Osich (forearm) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Osich last pitched on the 23rd and had been struggling in his last couple of outings. There is not a specified timeline for his return as of yet but clearly he will be out of action for the next couple of weeks. Matt Reynolds has been recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to replace him on the 25-man roster for the time being.

Tyrann Mathieu Headshot

Tyrann Mathieu (knee) is about three-to-four weeks away from practicing.

Mathieu is still recovering from an ACL injury that ended his season a year ago and has already been place on the PUP list. With him being that far from practicing, he will likely miss most if not all of training camp for the Cardinals. He will have to practice in full before Week 1 in order to come off the PUP list and actually make it on the field for the opening game of the season. He is a vital part of the defense and with Justin Bethel also on the physically unable to perform list, Arizona will want one if not both back before facing the Patriots in the opening week.

Kyle Waldrop Headshot

Reds optioned Kyle Waldrop to Triple-A Louisville.

Waldrop has been an extra outfielder and a bench bat in his 13 games in the bigs but will be sent down to make room for Homer Bailey being activated. Waldrop has done decently in his short time, hitting .250/.286/.300 with one RBI and one run scored. He should come back up the next time they are in need of a bench bat, but in the meantime he will be organizational depth at Triple-A.

Ben Revere Headshot

Ben Revere is out of the Nationals lineup on Thursday.

Revere has been struggling mightily this season following his acquisition from the Blue Jays. He was slatted to be the everyday leadoff man and starting center fielder but that hasn't gone according to plan even after coming back from injury. Trea Turner has been starting in center the last two days and batting leadoff, while Revere was left against the Indians. Without the DH spot in the lineup for the series in San Francisco, Jayson Werth will again assume the spot in left with Turner staying in center. If Revere doesn't get his bat going quickly, he could lose more time to Turner.
