Angels Place Andrew Heaney on DL

The Los Angeles Angels have officially placed left-hander Andrew Heaney (elbow) on the disabled list with left elbow inflammation. Heaney threw off a mound on Tuesday and is not expected to miss much of the season. He is expected to be the team's sixth starter, but his 7.06 ERA from last year makes him tough... Read More

Lions Sign Levine Toilolo

The Detroit Lions have come to terms with tight end Levine Toilolo. Toilolo spent the last five seasons with the Falcons, but was released in early March. The veteran has never recorded more than 31 receptions or 264 yards in a single season, and had just 122 yards and a touchdown last year. Even without... Read More

Justin Upton Stays Hot in Spring

Coming off a career-high 35 home runs and 109 RBI last season, Los Angeles Angels left fielder Justin Upton blasted three home runs this spring. Hitting in the heart of a very strong lineup in LA, Upton should be targeted very highly in fantasy drafts this season. He comes in 12th among outfielders in our... Read More

Kole Calhoun Completes Strong Spring

Los Angeles Angels right fielder Kole Calhoun wrapped up a stellar spring, going 18-for-51 with three doubles, one home run and nine RBI. Calhoun's .353 average was nice, but he only drew two walks compared to 14 strikeouts. He has posted a walk rate over 10 percent the last two seasons, however, so this might... Read More

Bengals Plan to Utilize Carl Lawson More

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis spoke about 2017 rookie pass rusher Carl Lawson at the annual meetings last week, stating that he wants to use him more often in 2018. Lawson had 8.5 sacks last season despite only being used on 42 percent of the Bengals defensive snaps. If Lawson can remain productive in... Read More

Noe Ramirez, Luke Bard Make Angels 25-Man Roster

The Los Angeles Angels have re-assigned reliever Felix Pena, allowing both Noe Ramirez and Rule 5 Draft selection Luke Bard to crack the roster. Optioning Pena was the only option that allowed the Angels to keep all three, as Bard would have to be returned to the Twins and Ramirez was out of options. Neither... Read More

Angels Cut Chris Carter

The Los Angeles Angels have informed first baseman/designated hitter Chris Carter that he will not break camp on the 25-man roster. There's no word on if he will accept an assignment at Triple-A Salt Lake or if he will try and catch on with another club. Regardless, his current fantasy value is non-existent. If he catches...

Shohei Ohtani to Start Sunday

Los Angeles Angels starter Shohei Ohtani is set to start the fourth game of the season for the Angels on Sunday against the A's. The rotation will go Garrett Richards, Tyler Skaggs, Matt Shoemaker, Ohtani and JC Ramirez. They likely won't use their sixth starter until April 12. By that time it could be Andrew... Read More

Ian Kinsler Questionable for Opening Day

Los Angeles Angels second baseman Ian Kinsler is dealing with a groin issue and is questionable for Opening Day. If Kinsler is unable to go, the Angels would likely slide Zack Cozart over to second base and play Luis Valbuena and/or Jefry Marte at third base. Kinsler is not expected to miss much time, but... Read More

Zack Cozart to Hit Leadoff on Tuesday

Los Angeles Angels third baseman Zack Cozart will bat leadoff and play second base in LA's spring training game on Tuesday. Cozart is not expected to hit leadoff or play second regularly, but this provides a good look at the Angels plans on days that Ian Kinsler does not play. The Angels chose not to... Read More

Andrew Heaney to Throw off Mound Tuesday

Los Angeles Angels starter Andrew Heaney (elbow) will throw off a mound on Tuesday. That is the first step toward returning from an elbow injury that has hampered him over the last few weeks. Heaney should be good to go shortly after the season begins. However, his injury history and ugly 7.06 ERA make him... Read More

Ameer Abdullah's Role Uncertain

Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quin said that running back Ameer Abdullah "sure does" have a role with the team going forward. Of course, the same was said about former tight end Eric Ebron, who was cut shortly after. It's hard to envision a heavy workload for Abdullah in the Motor City after the Lions... Read More

Andrelton Simmons Hitting Eighth

The Los Angeles Angels released their lineup for the first game of the Freeway series against the Dodgers, and shortstop Andrelton Simmons is hitting eighth. Simmons hit in the top half of the order for a huge chunk of the 2017 season, but offseason additions Ian Kinsler and Zack Cozart may push Simmons down toward... Read More

Shohei Ohtani's Final Spring Stats Underwhelm

Los Angeles Angels starter and designated hitter Shohei Ohtani had his final outing of spring training on Saturday. It was an intrasquad game against mostly low-level minor league players. He only gave up two hits, but his fastball was as low as 89 miles per hour. One scout expressed concern about his fastball command and... Read More

Albert Pujols Blasts First Spring Home Run

Los Angeles Angels first baseman/designated hitter Albert Pujols hit his first home run of the spring on Friday. The 37-year-old slugger is now 11-for-42 this spring, and seems to be finding his power stroke just in time for the season to begin. Pujols had the worst season of his career last year, but still managed... Read More

3 years ago

Jefry Marte Likely to Make Angels Roster

The Los Angeles Angels have reassigned infielders Kaleb Cowart and David Fletcher to minor league camp, which makes it appear that 1B/3B Jefry Marte has made the big league roster. Marte hit .173 with four home runs and one steal last season, and will hold a bench role behind Luis Valbuena, Zack Cozart, Albert Pujols... Read More

Parker Bridwell, Nick Tropeano Sent to Triple-A

The Los Angeles Angels reassigned starting pitchers Parker Bridwell and Nick Tropeano to Triple-A. That leaves Garrett Richards, Shoehi Ohtani, Matt Shoemaker, Tyler Skaggs, JC Ramirez and Andrew Heaney as LA's presumptive six-man rotation. Heaney has been battling an injury, but it sounds like the team either expects him to be fine by the start... Read More

Lions Sign Luke Willson

The Detroit Lions have agreed to terms with free-agent blocking tight end Luke Willson. Willson will replace Darren Fells, who signed elsewhere this offseason. Willson has never eclipsed more than 362 yards and four touchdowns in a single season and seems unlikely to reach those numbers in the Motor City. As such, he is nothing... Read More

3 years ago

Parker Bridwell Could Win Rotation Spot

Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Parker Bridwell threw five shutout innings against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, before surrendering three runs in the sixth. Bridwell is competing for the sixth spot in LA's rotation with Nick Tropeano, following the injury to Andrew Heaney. Bridwell had 10 wins and a 3.64 ERA last season in 121 1/3... Read More

Andrew Heaney to Miss Start with Elbow Inflammation

Los Angeles Angels left-handed pitcher Andrew Heaney will miss his next spring training start with left elbow inflammation. He underwent an MRI, which ruled out ligament damage, and he will be cleared to throw once the swelling subsides. Spring training injuries are never fun, but rarely should they be taken too seriously. However, Heaney has... Read More

Detroit Lions Expected to Take a Running Back Early

The Detroit Lions will likely target a running back in the first few rounds of the NFL draft. Even after re-signing Zach Zenner and adding veteran LeGarrette Blount on a one-year deal, the team is looking for their running back of the future. After missing out on Alvin Kamara and Kareem Hunt last year, the... Read More

Bengals Signing Matt Barkley

The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to terms with free-agent quarterback Matt Barkley on a two-year deal. Barkley is expected to compete for the backup role behind veteran Andy Dalton. Barkley did not play in the NFL last season. He is very unlikely to hold any fantasy value unless an injury thrusts him into a starting... Read More

Lions, LeGarrette Blount Agree to Deal

The Detroit Lions have come to terms with free-agent running back LeGarrette Blount on a one-year, $4.5 million contract. New head coach Matt Patricia is known to be a big Blount fan, and the two worked together when Blount was on the Patriots. Blount followed up his 18-touchdown 2016 season with just two touchdowns last... Read More

Lions Set to Host Luke Willson

The Detroit Lions are still looking for a new tight end and are bringing in former Seahawks tight end Luke Willson. Willson is more of a blocking tight end and would replace Darren Fells, who departed for Cleveland. As such, Willson is unlikely to hold much fantasy value in the Motor City. He has never topped...

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict Suspended Four Games

Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has been suspended for the first four games of the 2018 NFL season for a violation of the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy. No appeal date has been set yet. Pending appeal, Burfict will be absent for the first four games for Cincinnati next season. The controversial linebacker is one of... Read More

Lions Re-Sign Zach Zenner

The Detroit Lions re-signed running back Zach Zenner. Terms were not disclosed. Zenner was a deep backup on a poor running team last year, only mustering 14 carries for 26 yards on the season. With Detroit looking at multiple free-agent running backs, it seems likely that Zenner will be buried on the bench once again.... Read More

Lions Host Mike Davis

The Detroit Lions are continuing their search for a new running back, this time bringing in former Seahawks back Mike Davis. Davis spent most of last season on the practice squad but exploded onto the scene late in the year, rushing 68 times for 240 yards and hauling in 15 catches for 131 yards. Again,... Read More

Frank Gore, Lions Nearing Deal

The Detroit Lions are close to striking a deal with veteran free-agent running back Frank Gore. Detroit's running game struggled mightily last season, and they have been active on the free-agent market. They have been connected to Gore and DeMarco Murray. Detroit's pass-heavy offense and poor offensive line is not an ideal spot for an... Read More

Bengals Agree to Terms with Tyler Eifert

The Cincinnati Bengals reached an agreement to keep tight end Tyler Eifert on a one-year deal. Eifert missed almost the entire 2017 season, but was still regarded as the top tight end remaining in free agency. Assuming he is fully healthy going into 2018, Eifert will be a TE1 in all fantasy formats. Health is... Read More

Lions Host Brent Celek

Former Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek is visiting with the Detroit Lions. Celek has primarily been a blocking tight end in his career and would fill the void left by Darren Fells, who signed with the Browns. However, Detroit also recently released Eric Ebron, so Celek could fill more of a traditional pass-catching role with...
