Josh Manson Headshot

Manson scored the lone goal in Sunday's win over the Kings.

It was the second goal and 11th point of the season for Manson, who isn't known for his offense. The 25-year-old doesn't play on the power play and hadn't recorded a point in 16 games prior to Sunday. Manson's 61 PIM could make him relevant in very deep leagues, but if you need offense, it's probably best to look elsewhere.

Peter Budaj Headshot

Budaj stopped 28 of 29 shots in Sunday's loss to the Kings.

It was a great effort from Budaj, but unfortunately the Kings couldn't solve John Gibson. With the loss, the 34-year-old falls to 26-19-3 on the season. While he played well Sunday, Budaj has been struggling to pick up victories of late, managing just one win in his last six appearances. His .916 save percentage is appealing, but Budaj is turning in inconsistent performances, so it's hard to know what you're going to get each night. The stability is starting to wear off, but Budaj and his 26 wins are still a valuable fantasy asset.

Luke Glendening Headshot

Glendening made good on an empty-netter from center ice in Sunday's 5-2 road win over the Penguins.

This was just the third goal of the season for the Michigan native -- he's been confined to a bottom-six role -- but his defensive efforts were huge in helping the Wings kill off all four Pittsburgh power plays. Glendening is an asset for the Wings, but not someone that you should be counting on in the fantasy realm due to his limited chances with the puck.

John Gibson Headshot

Gibson stopped all 24 shots he faced in Sunday's win over Los Angeles.

It was the fifth shutout of the season for Gibson, who has been dynamite in the Anaheim crease. He's had the odd bad outing, but Gibson is sporting a solid .922 save percentage and has posted 23 wins. The 23-year-old sees a heavy workload and has posted shutouts in two of his last three games for an Anaheim team sitting third in the Pacific Division with 72 points. Use him well.

Blake Swihart Headshot

Swihart's return throws to pitchers were much better Sunday, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports.

Swihart raised some eyebrows Saturday when his throws back to the pitcher were way off the mark, but his throws Sunday were much harder and he didn't misfire at all. The initial concern was the he could be developing some sort of mental block -- particularly coming off last season when his development time took a hit when the Red Sox moved him to left field before he suffered a season-ending ankle injury. "It's really not going to be big deal," Swihart said. "The only tough part was getting back there for the first time in a long while with live pitching." Swihart is expected to open the season at Triple-A Pawtucket to get back to an everyday routine behind the plate.

Neil Walker Headshot

The Mets and Walker (back) may be close to reaching an agreement on a three-year deal worth in the vicinity of $40 million, SNY.TV reports, though Marc Carig of Newsday indicates a contract extension isn't imminent.

Walker, who accepted the Mets' one-year, $17.2 million qualifying offer in November, was close to inking a similar deal at the time but took the one-year tender offer, enabling the two sides more time to talk. New York has very little second base depth in the organization, having dealt Dilson Herrera to the Reds in the Jay Bruce, as T.J. Rivera or Gavin Cecchini, if he transitioned to the keystone position, would likely be next in line. Walker is coming off a career-year and has expressed his desire to remain in New York, while the Mets will likely take some of the $17.2 million for this year and move it into the future years on the deal.

Matt Davidson Headshot

Davidson will be one of a few players that White Sox manager Rick Renteria will rotate through the DH spot.

Renteria also mentioned Avisail Garcia and Jose Abreu getting time as the designated hitter. Davidson, who is coming off a foot injury, could also get time at third base if the White Sox move Todd Frazier at some point during the season.

Andrew Romine Headshot

Romine should once again serve in a super utility role for the Tigers this season, reports.

Romine brought eight different gloves to spring training, and the Tigers want him to break them all in. Last season, Romine appeared at all four infield positions and all three outfield positions, so he gives the team a lot of versatility off the bench. However, he's a career .240 hitter with very minimal power (six career home runs in seven MLB seasons), so he's not a great fantasy asset.

Peter Bourjos Headshot

Bourjos, a non-roster invitee, will get an increased opportunity in center field after Charlie Tilson suffered a foot injury, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Tilson's foot injury will keep him out of action for at least 10 days, putting the 29-year-old Bourjos in position to earn a roster spot. The White Sox prefer Tilson be the starter, but he's battled injuries ever since getting a shot in Chicago's outfield last season.

Javier Baez Headshot

The Cubs want Baez to be more consistent in the field before he assumes an everyday role at second base, CSNChicago reports.

As manager Joe Maddon put it, he wants Baez to cut down on the "chrome" and focus on making all the routine plays. Maddon added that Baez "has a flair about his game, so I don't necessarily want to subtract that. But just have him understand the routine stuff has to be made routinely well." The 24-year-old often makes amazing plays in the field, but he's still fairly error-prone at this point (see the two errors he made in Game 7 of the World Series). For Baez to grab an everyday role at second base, he'll have to show more day-to-day consistency.
