The Memphis Grizzlies claimed ex-Knicks guard Tony Wroten off of waivers Friday. The Knicks released Wroten on Wednesday after signing him late in the season. New York at one point appeared optimistic that Wroten could help them next season, so the decision to waive him was a bit of a surprise. Wroten now returns to Memphis, which selected him in the first round of the 2012 draft.

Juan Lagares, who landed on the disabled list with that partial tear in his right thumb, is doing baseball activity in Florida. He could enter rehab games in the near future. Assistant GM John Ricco said Lagares still will need to learn whether he can play on a regular basis before a determination of whether surgery will be avoided can be made.

Zack Wheeler is due to long toss in Port St. Lucie on Monday. It will mark his first time throwing since receiving the cortisone injection last week in New York for elbow discomfort. The Mets say Wheeler's surgically repaired elbow is structurally sound. It certainly appears as though Wheeler will not reach the majors until August, although the Mets have been noncommittal on a revised timetable.

Curtis Granderson and Asdrubal Cabrera both needed a day off. Granderson's legs are tired, according to Terry Collins. Cabrera, who never does, asked for Sunday off. At least they'll be fresh for Nationals series.
