Deyonta Davis Headshot

Davis was recalled Sunday from the D-League's Iowa Energy.

Marc Gasol is dealing with a foot injury and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Warriors, so Davis adds another available body in the frontcourt to make up for a potential absence. If Gasol does play, however, Davis could find minutes hard to come by, especially if the game remains competitive. It wouldn't be surprising if Davis was re-assigned to the Energy shortly after Sunday's contest.

Bronson Arroyo Headshot

Arroyo (head) is scheduled to pitch in a minor-league game Tuesday, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Arroyo was fortunate to avoid a concussion after he was struck in the head in a March 18 on an errant throw by catcher Devin Mesoraco, and after a week off to recover from the head injury, it looks like he's been given clearance to return to the mound. Assuming Tuesday's outing goes well, Arroyo will pitch in another minor-league outing April 2 before rejoining the Reds in Cincinnati. At that point, the team would decide whether or not to add him to the 40-man roster or go with some of their younger internal options to fill out the rotation prior to Opening Day.
2:39 pm (EST)
Wade Baldwin Headshot

Baldwin was recalled Sunday from the D-League's Iowa Energy.

Baldwin has spent a ton of time in the D-League this season, playing in 33 games for the Energy and posting averages of 12.9 points, 4.3 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.3 steals across 28.2 minutes. With Tony Allen recently dealing with knee soreness, Baldwin represents an emergency option in the backcourt in case Allen's injury flares up again. That said, more likely than not, Baldwin will struggle to get minutes, as he's not a member of the team's regular rotation.
2:36 pm (EST)
Aaron Judge Headshot

Judge is batting .300 (15-for-50) with two home runs and four RBI in his first 20 spring training games.

The power-hitting 24-year-old has enjoyed a solid spring training campaign in the days leading up to his first Opening Day start. Though it's a small sample size, Judge's 21 percent strikeout rate during camp is an encouraging sign, as he struck out in over 44 percent of his at-bats during his 27 games played for the Yankees in 2016.
2:34 pm (EST)
Cody Anderson Headshot

Anderson (elbow) will have his Tommy John surgery conducted in Texas on Monday, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

Renowned surgeon Dr. Keith Meister will perform the procedure for Anderson, who was diagnosed with the UCL tear in his right elbow a little over two weeks ago. He'll miss the entire 2017 season while recovering from the procedure and may not be ready to go for the start of the 2018 campaign.
2:26 pm (EST)
Diamond Stone Headshot

Stone (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Kings.

Stone has been dealing with a bone bruise to his left knee since the end of February and it's still giving him enough discomfort to keep him on the inactive list Sunday. Even when healthy, Stone wasn't a part of the regular rotation, so he shouldn't be expected to take on a sizable role once cleared. That said, he remains without any sort of timetable for a return and will likely need to log a full practice before being eligible for game situations.
2:25 pm (EST)
Tyler Skaggs Headshot

Skaggs tossed four innings of one-run ball Saturday, surrendering four hits while striking out three in a win over Arizona.

The 25-year-old has looked sharp in three outings since being sidelined with shoulder soreness. While any type of injury should strike fear in the hearts of his owners, it appears that the talented lefty has sidestepped any serious damage. The Angels have yet to announce Skaggs as a part of their rotation, but the pitcher said that he feels ready to go, stating that he should get to 85-90 pitches in his next spring outing. Skaggs remains a high-upside, late-round pitcher, who could outperform his price if his health and production trend in the right direction.
2:23 pm (EST)
Hanser Alberto Headshot

Alberto suffered a setback with his sore right shoulder and required an MRI on Saturday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The Rangers decided to temporarily shut Alberto down after he experienced renewed pain in the shoulder, and his status for Opening Day is now looking like a serious question mark. He'll be reevaluated Monday, at which point the Rangers should have a better idea of how long he'll be sidelined. If Alberto is forced to open the campaign on the 10-day DL, it could aid Drew Robinson's bid for a roster spot.
2:21 pm (EST)
Austin Rivers Headshot

Rivers will join the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Kings, Bill Oram of the Orange County Register reports.

J.J. Redick recently suffered a sprained right ankle, so he'll sit out Sunday, which gives Rivers the opportunity to join the top unit. In 28 previous starts this season, Rivers has averaged 16.3 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists across 34.2 minutes, so he should have a temporary increase in value and could be an intriguing DFS play Sunday.
