Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:39:01 -0700

The Minnesota Vikings signed free-agent WR Ty Walker (Packers) to an undisclosed contract Friday, July 25.

Twins | Kyle Gibson encouraged by session

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:37:18 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson (back) was pleased with his long-toss session from 120 feet and the 10 to 15 throws he made in the bullpen Friday, July 25. He's hopeful he can return to the rotation Tuesday, July 29.

FANTASY TIP: The matchup against the Kansas City Royals would be favorable, but he's been living on borrowed statistical time and would probably be rusty. Do you need the stream in a deep mixed league?

Giants | David Wilson takes a hit

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:28:17 -0700

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) took his first hit of training camp Friday, July 25, without issue. "That felt good," Wilson said.

FANTASY TIP: Another big hurdle passed for Wilson, who will now have to contend with a crowded backfield in training camp. Wilson is a risky draft option, and should be considered an RB4.

Mets | Daisuke Matsuzaka to have MRI

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:27:12 -0700

New York Mets RP Daisuke Matsuzaka (elbow) will have an MRI test on his elbow in New York.

Raiders | D.J. Hayden, four others placed on PUP

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:25:49 -0700

Oakland Raiders CB D.J. Hayden (foot), TE Nick Kasa (undisclosed), CB Keith McGill (ankle), OG Lucas Nix (undisclosed) and FS Usama Young (quadriceps) were placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Friday, July 25.

Pirates | No Pedro Alvarez

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:25:48 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez (knee) is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 25, against the Colorado Rockies. 3B Brent Morel is filling in at third and hitting eighth.

FANTASY TIP: Morel is worth a look in daily games. He is cheap, and the game is being played at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Alvarez hasn't played since he left early Tuesday, July 22, because of left knee discomfort. Check back for updates on Alvarez's status.

Mariners | Kendrys Morales hitting cleanup

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:23:02 -0700

Seattle Mariners DH Kendrys Morales is hitting cleanup Friday, July 25.

FANTASY TIP: The potential for these run-producing opportunities is where his value will come in handy for mixed leagues, though Seattle's offense has been inconsistent.

Mariners | Jesus Montero demoted

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:21:35 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma to make roster room for DH Kendrys Morales.

FANTASY TIP: Morales begins his second stint with Seattle on the precipice of mixed-league value. Deeper leagues could tuck him away to see if the familiar surroundings will jolt his bat, which in all fairness probably is taking longer to come around because of his midseason signing.

Raiders | C.J. Wilson placed on NFI

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:18:59 -0700

Oakland Raiders DE C.J. Wilson (undisclosed) was placed on the Non-Football Injury list Friday, July 25.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez hitting cleanup

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:18:15 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is batting fourth Friday, July 25, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

FANTASY TIP: Gonzalez could see more RBI opportunities and less run scoring chances batting fourth.

Raiders | Stacy McGee placed on NFI

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:17:48 -0700

Oakland Raiders DT Stacy McGee (undisclosed) was placed on the Non-Football Injury list Friday, July 25.

Twins | Joe Mauer update

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:17:27 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer (oblique) has been hitting off a tee and going through the hitting progression. He doesn't yet have a timetable for live batting practice.

FANTASY TIP: This could drag into late August, diminishing Mauer's impact upon his return. It's looking like a lost season is nearly confirmed unless he can pick it up soon.

Rangers | Cut Justin Marks

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:16:42 -0700

The Texas Rangers released RP Justin Marks.

Bills | Brandon Smith placed on IR

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:15:09 -0700

Buffalo Bills CB Brandon E. Smith (leg) cleared waivers and was placed on the Bills' Reserve/Injured list Friday, July 25.

Rangers | Jerome Williams up

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:14:57 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Jerome Williams had his contract purchased from Triple-A Round Rock and will start Friday, July 25.

FANTASY TIP: Avoid him for fantasy purposes.

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:12:52 -0700

The Tennessee Titans signed free-agent OG Kevin Danser to an undisclosed contract Friday, July 25.
