Philipp Grubauer Headshot

Grubauer will defend the net for Sunday's game against the Rangers, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports.

Grubauer last started five games ago for the Capitals, posting a 38-save shutout effort against the Kings. With Washington playing a back-to-back set Saturday and Sunday, Grubauer finally receives a chance to knock some rust off Sunday. He squares off against a tough Rangers club who won six straight prior to a loss to the Islanders on Thursday.

Yannick Weber Headshot

Weber notched an assist during Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Wild. He also dished out a pair of hits, blocked two pucks and launched five shots on goal.

Weber's stat line usually isn't something to get too excited about, but he's been making more of an impact lately. Saturday's helper was his second in the past three games, and his ice time of 15:06 was three minutes higher than his season average (12:02). He's still skating primarily on the Preds' third defensive pairing, but if you're in an ultra-deep league and need to bolster your blue line, Weber is worth a look right now.

Cory Conacher Headshot

Conacher was reassigned to the team's AHL Syracuse affiliate Sunday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Tampa Bay recalled the 27-year-old winger just Saturday as an apparent depth option, but he didn't draw into the lineup and has since been returned. This has been a common theme for the team's fringe players this season, so it shouldn't come as a shock to many that he's headed back. Even if he rejoins the Bolts again this season, it's unlikely Conacher will gain fantasy relevance in any but the deepest of leagues.

Khris Davis Headshot

Davis confirmed on Sunday that he will not play for Team Mexico in the World Baseball Classic, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Davis also stated that he has felt "over-extended" recently and will forego the WBC in order to remain at Athletics' camp and go through the standard spring training regimen. He's coming off of a 42 home run campaign and is an attractive fantasy option entering the 2017 season.

Colin Wilson Headshot

Wilson snapped a three-game pointless skid with a goal and an assist during Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Wild.

That makes six points in 10 games for Wilson since he returned from an eight-game absence in January due to a mystery ailment. He's seeing roughly 15 minutes of ice time per game these days playing on the Preds' second line, including a modest amount power-play time. Wilson is a notoriously streaky scorer, but he might be able to help you in deeper formats right now given his current level of output.

Fernando Abad Headshot

Abad, who didn't pitch well after being acquired by Boston last season and was left off the postseason roster, was retained by the Red Sox because they recognize he can be an effective left-handed reliever, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Abad had a 6.39 ERA over 12.2 innings in 18 games for Boston, but left-handed hitters were just 3-for-23 (.130) against him, suggesting he can still be a useful left-handed specialist. He'll join Robbie Ross as the primary left-handers in Boston's bullpen.

Ariel Miranda Headshot

Miranda will operate as a starting pitcher during spring training, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

With the offseason additions of Drew Smyly and Yovani Gallardo, Miranda became the odd man out in the Mariners' starting rotation. The fact that he'll operate as a starter during spring training suggests that the 27-year-old will be utilized as the team's primary replacement starter heading into the 2017 season.

Mike Condon Headshot

Condon will defend the net Sunday against the Jets, Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

Craig Anderson made the start in Saturday's front end of the team's back-to-back set, so the logical move is for the Senators to turn to Condon for Sunday's contest. Unfortunately for Condon owner's his playing time has been scaled back since Anderson's return to the club and that figures to remain the case unless Anderson takes personal leave again. Condon's performed relatively well when given the opportunity (17-9-5 record this season) and should still see a decent chunk of starts the rest of the way.

Xander Bogaerts Headshot

Bogaerts' slump during the second half of 2016 was partially due to him making a decision where he wanted to hit the ball before the pitch reached him, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

Bogaerts hit just .253/.317/.412/.729 after the All-Star break, though within that stretch there were pockets of a better approach, something that assistant hitting coach Victor Rodriguez pointed out to the shortstop. "You just have to start up the middle," Bogaerts said. "If you start up the middle, you can hit in and away. Sometimes I think too much away, and when they throw me in, all I can do is a little jam shot. If you think middle and keep your body straight, you see it and recognize -- and boom." As much as the 24-year-old shortstop has developed since entering the majors, the last bit of potential that remains untapped is avoiding those annoying prolonged slumps. That will come when he consistently stays back and reacts accordingly to the pitch delivered to him.

Vinnie Hinostroza Headshot

Hinostroza was summoned from the team's AHL Rockford affiliate Sunday, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Hinostroza was with the team prior to its break, but didn't rejoin until a day after it returned to action Saturday against the Oilers. He skated in each of the three games prior to the week-long hiatus and could be a candidate to return to action Sunday. However, his lack of ice time and production keeps the youngster off the fantasy radar in most leagues.
