    Smith has played a full 16- or 17-game schedule in just one of his six pro seasons and is coming off of a 2023 campaign that saw him miss seven contests to knee issues.

    39m ago

    Seahawks general manager John Schneider revealed Wednesday that Lucas underwent knee surgery following the 2023 season.

    Lucas started 16 games as a rookie in 2022 but battled constant knee issues last season and was limited to just six contests. It sounds like it was more of a cleanup procedure for Lucas, and he should be ready well ahead of Week 1 in September.

    Bengals' Jake Browning: Tendered by Cincinnati
    1h ago

    The Bengals tendered exclusive rights free agent Browning on Wednesday.

    Undrafted out of Washington in 2019, Browning made the first nine appearances of his NFL career last season, starting seven games following Joe Burrow's season-ending injury.

He's the favorite to open 2024 as Burrow's top backup.

  • Tarik Skubal DET SP
    Tigers' Tarik Skubal: Effective in spring debut
    24m ago

    Skubal tossed two scoreless innings in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates. He walked one and struck out two.

    Skubal cruised in his first tune-up start of the spring, as he logged 29 pitches and didn't allow a hit. The talented lefty underwent flexor tendon surgery in August of 2022, which delayed his debut last year by a few months. That means the team will likely build him up slowly in camp with the goal of having him available for a larger regular-season workload. Skubal's career high in innings is 149.1, which he recorded back in 2021.

  • Nick Madrigal CHC 3B
    Cubs' Nick Madrigal: May get pushed into bench role
    36m ago

    Madrigal may have to settle for a bench role with Christopher Morel seemingly in line to start most days at third base, Jordan Bastian of reports.

    The versatile Morel has been focusing on the hot corner in camp, and it seems like he will emerge as the top option there. With Nico Hoerner and Dansby Swanson locked in up the middle, Madrigal seems destined for a utility role off the bench, which would cap his fantasy upside for the time being. Things could change if one of those other players suffers an injury.

  • Jordan Wicks CHC SP
    Cubs' Jordan Wicks: Looks good Wednesday
    42m ago

    Wicks logged three scoreless innings in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Brewers. He allowed four hits and struck out two.

    Through two spring appearances, Wicks has now allowed one run across 4.2 innings while striking out three. The lefty is competing for the No. 5 spot in the Cubs' rotation and appears to be off to a good start. His fantasy value would of course go up if he secures a starting role versus a bullpen job or an assignment to Triple-A Iowa. Wicks has some upside and could be poised to take a step forward in his second MLB season.

  • Graham Ashcraft CIN SP
    Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Starting Thursday
    4h ago

    Ashcraft (toe) will start Thursday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Manager David Bell said Wednesday that Ashcraft will make his spring debut "within the next week," and it will end up coming just a day later. The right-hander has been brought along slowly in camp as he returns from September toe surgery, but it should affect his availability for Opening Day given how much time he has to ramp up his workload.

    Dodgers' Max Muncy: Dealing with bruised hand
    5h ago

    Muncy was diagnosed with a bruise on his left hand Wednesday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The 33-year-old was struck on the left hand by a pitch during Wednesday's Cactus League game versus the Rangers, but it appears he's avoided a serious injury. Muncy is scheduled to undergo an X-ray on Thursday, per Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic, which should provide additional clarity.

  • Carson Palmquist COL P
    Rockies' Carson Palmquist: Bothered by non-throwing arm
    5h ago

    Palmquist was removed from his relief appearance in Wednesday's Cactus League game the Angels due to an apparent right arm injury, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports.

    Palmquist is a southpaw, so while his injury is to his non-throwing arm, it's still less than ideal that he wasn't able to stay in the game after hitting Anthony Rendon with a pitch to lead off the fifth inning. The southpaw had previously worked a clean fourth inning, working around a one-out double by striking out Mike Trout to end the frame. The 23-year-old is likely to open the 2024 season at either Triple-A Albuquerque or Double-A Hartford.

    15m ago

    Rose is questionable to return to Wednesday's game versus the Timberwolves due to back soreness.

    31m ago

    Davis (illness/Achilles) will play in Wednesday's game against the Clippers, Ryan Ward of reports.

    1h ago

    Mitchell is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Nuggets, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Lakers' Cam Reddish: Good to go
    1h ago

    Reddish (ankle) will play Wednesday against the Clippers, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Reddish has missed the Lakers past 14 games with a sprained right ankle but will make his return to the hardwood Wednesday. Considering the lengthy absence, it's likely Reddish will have his workload monitored. Regardless, his return could spell fewer minutes for Max Christie.

  • Artemi Panarin NYR LW
    Rangers' Artemi Panarin: Adds to career high goal total
    5m ago

    Panarin scored two goals and added an assist in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Panarin opened the scoring in the second period with a mix of luck and skill, as he took advantage of a fortuitous bounce off the linesman's skate after a faceoff and fired the puck five-hole on Elvis Merzlikins. His other two points came late in the third period after Columbus pulled Merzlikins for an extra skater, as Panarin unselfishly dished the puck to Chris Kreider to make it 3-1 before scoring the game's final goal from his own blue line. Panarin's up to 35 goals on the season, having topped his previous career high by three with 22 games to go.

  • Igor Shesterkin NYR G
    Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Stretches win streak to seven
    11m ago

    Shesterkin stopped 30 of 31 shots in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Shesterkin ruined his own shutout bid in the third period, as his giveaway from behind the net to Damon Severson led to Cole Sillinger's goal on the rebound, but he was flawless otherwise en route to a seventh consecutive win. After an uncharacteristically poor first half of the season, Shesterkin has found his form with seven wins in seven starts since the All-Star Break for a Rangers team that regained the top spot in the NHL standings with Wednesday's win. The fantasy buy-low window on Shesterkin has long since slammed shut.

    Lajoie was reassigned to AHL Toronto on Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Flyers' Jamie Drysdale: Moves to injured reserve
    1h ago

    Drysdale (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Drysdale was already deemed week-to-week, so this move is simply to free up a roster spot for the Flyers. Egor Zamula has the most to gain from Drysdale's absence, as he'll likely absorb Drysdale's power-play ice time while featuring more consistently in the lineup in general.

  • Logan Stankoven DAL C
    Stars' Logan Stankoven: Sent down Wednesday
    1h ago

    Stankoven was sent down to AHL Texas on Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    This is likely a paper move for the Stars to buy some time to balance their roster and cap situation following the team's acquisition of Chris Tanev on Wednesday. Stankoven has three points over three NHL games and will likely be on the NHL roster ahead of Thursday's contest versus the Jets since the Stars have only 11 healthy forwards available after Wednesday's moves.

  • Christopher Tanev CGY D
    Stars' Chris Tanev: Heading to Lone Star State
    2h ago

    Tanev was traded from the Flames to the Stars via the Devils on Wednesday in exchange for a 2024 second-round pick, a conditional 2026 third-round pick and Artyom Grushnikov, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

    The Flames will retain 50 percent of Tanev's remaining salary and the Devils will retain 25 percent more to help the Stars fit him in after the three-team trade. Tanev's role will not change much from switching teams -- he's a top-four defenseman who's sound in his own zone. Tanev is second in the NHL with 171 blocked shots, but he also has just 14 points through 56 outings, so his fantasy value remains limited to deeper formats. Per Lia Assimakopoulos of The Dallas Morning News, Tanev won't play Thursday versus the Jets, but he could be available by Saturday's game versus the Sharks.
