Hernandez has been with the Mariners since 2006 and has managed to make at least 30 starts each season, even when experiencing injuries. Last season Hernandez missed his record and only started 25 games, due to missing two months with a calf injury.

<![CDATA[Jay Cutler Out To Sea]]>Jay Cutler is still a quarterback without a team for the 2017 season. Cutler was released by the Bears and no teams have shown interest in the one time Pro-Bowler.

Cutler has played with the Broncos who drafted him and made his way over to the Bears for the past several seasons. He has been plagued with injuries over the last three years and was never able to show his full ability. The Bears made the decision to move on from Cutler after this season ended and he once again didn't stay healthy.

<![CDATA[Yoenis Cespedes Exits Game]]>During Thursday afternoon's game against the Atlanta Braves, New York Met Yoenis Cespedes left the game early with a left hamstring pull.

Cespedes rounded first base and by the time he made it to second he was bent over in clear pain. The head athletic trainer and manager both rushed out to see what was wrong and they ended up helping Cespedes limp off the field. Cespedes has been dealing with a hamstring issue and had been kept out of three games because of it. Seeing him in pain and leaving the field is not a good sign and he will most likely be sidelined again.

<![CDATA[Jose Altuve Out Wednesday Night]]>Jose Altuve is not in the lineup for Wednesday night's game. The Houston Astro was involved in a nasty collision Tuesday night with Teoscar Hernandez and both players left the game.

There was no immediate decision on Tuesday night about Altuve playing on Wednesday but the Astros want to give him a day off to rest. He did not have a concussion so his time off the field should only be a day or two.

<![CDATA[Madison Bumgarner Will Not Need Surgery]]>Left-hander Madison Bumgarner will not need to have surgery on his pitching shoulder. Bumgarner sprained his shoulder while he was dirt biking in Colorado after playing a game against the Rockies.

This is great news for the Giants, their fans, and all fantasy owners! Surgery would have kept him out until next season most likely. Bumgarner will still be sidelined for the next two months, and will be reevaluated after that time. He is scheduled to begin light rehab in less than a week.

<![CDATA[Ryan Braun Exits Game]]>Ryan Braun exited Monday night's game against the Reds with a sore foot. The Brewers had a heavy lead so letting Braun come out and rest wasn't a negative impact for the game.

Braun had fouled several pitches off his foot during the game, and after awhile it hurts. Braun is the top hitter on the Brewers and giving him part of a game off is in everyone's best interest. There is no official word on Braun missing any time so no need to panic.

<![CDATA[Pablo Sandoval 10 Day DL]]>Third baseman Pablo Sandoval has made his way to the ten day disabled list. Sandoval is dealing with a sprained right knee and won't take the field until at least May 4th.

The Red Sox announced the move on Tuesday but Sandoval's time on the DL was started on Monday. This is a tricky time for the Red Sox as they are dealing with multiple injuries with several of their top guys. Dustin Pedroia is still out from the other day and his ailments keep piling up. Shortstop Bogaerts is dealing with a sore left thumb, and Brock Holt is on the disabled list due to vertigo.

<![CDATA[Has Adrian Peterson Found a Home?]]>Has free-agent Adrian Peterson finally found a team to play with in the 2017 season? Right now it looks like Peterson will be making his way down to New Orleans to be a Saint.

There is no official word on a deal being reached, but apparently there were lots of conversations over the weekend and things look to be moving forward. The running back has been without a team since the Vikings decided to not pick up his $18 million option. The Vikings played this past season without Peterson and were ready to let him move on.

<![CDATA[Stephen Strasburg Will Miss Next Start]]>Stephen Strasburg will miss his next scheduled start while he is out on paternity leave. Strasburg is waiting for the birth of his second child and did not travel to Colorado with the team.

The Washington Nationals are planning to have Strasburg start next weekend when they play the New York Mets.

<![CDATA[Dustin Pedroia Out]]>The Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is not in Saturday's lineup against the Baltimore Orioles. Pedroia took a hit to his leg during the eighth inning as Manny Machado slide into second base and hit him. Pedroia limped off the field and was done for the night.

The Red Sox were in an uproar as they thought the slide was late and the umpires did not enforce the rule that is in place to protect middle infielders. Pedroia seemed to shrug off any talk of a dirty play when he spoke after the game.

<![CDATA[Miguel Cabrera Moves to DL]]>After being considered day-to-day earlier in the week, Detroit Tiger Miguel Cabrera has been put on the 10 day disabled list. The first baseman is dealing with a strained right groin.

Cabrera got off to a slow start this season but had been making a turn in the right direction. He has a batting average of .268, three home runs, and nine RBIs over the course of 16 games. In the last eight games Cabrera played in he showed signs of life and batted with an average of .429, and had three home runs. Clearly Cabrera is still a trusted player to have on your fantasy team, and he should not be dropped.

<![CDATA[Matt Harvey Will Start Tonight ]]>Matt Harvey will get the start in Friday night's game in place of Jacob deGrome. The Mets made this switch because deGrome is dealing with a stiff neck. Harvey isn't impacted negatively by the switch as he is on his regular rest schedule.

As of now the Mets have not decided to keep deGrome out for tomorrow's game, so you can expect to see him on the mound. After undergoing surgery last season to repair the nerve in his right elbow, deGrome has had a great start to this season. He has pitched 19 innings and has an ERA of 1.89 and 22 strikeouts.

<![CDATA[Yoenis Cespedes Hamstring Issue]]>The New York Mets watched Yoenis Cespedes limp off the field during Thursday night's game against Philadelphia. At the time his issue was just a left hamstring cramp and he might be out for the next several days as a precaution.

Cespedes had an MRI on Friday but no new information has come out about the results. The Mets are obviously concerned about the issue and don't want to see Cespedes off the field for too long. The hamstring cramp changed to a slight hamstring strain, but a very mild strain.

<![CDATA[David Price Resumes Throwing]]>Pitcher David Price has been dealing with a left elbow strain that happened back at the end of February. He has been practicing over the last week with three side sessions, all spread out over six days.

The Boston Red Sox want to give Price time to rest to make sure he doesn't aggravate his elbow. Price is already dealing with some soreness so pushing him too hard will likely set him back for a longer amount of time. There is no timetable on when Price will return to the mound.

<![CDATA[Carlos Gonzalez Has Bruised Right Hand]]>Right fielder Carlos Gonzalez is suffering from a bruised right hand after being hit by a fastball thrown by Clayton Kershaw. Gonzalez went down during the fourth inning of Wednesday night's game and it was easy to see he was in pain.

The preliminary x-rays came back negative so that is a good sign for the Colorado Rockies. Gonzalez hopes to be back in action for Friday night's game. His pinky finger is wrapped up at the moment, and the Rockies might chose to give Gonzalez a few extra days off to be on the safe side. So far this season Gonzalez is off to a pretty slow start. He has a batting average of .175 and only one home run.
