Description: The Capitals have signed prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov to an entry-level contract. He\'ll make his debut Monday against Pittsburgh, according to Bob McKenzie of tsn.ca.
Insight: The 21-year-old was selected in the first round of the 2010 draft and just came to an agreement with his KHL team to end his contract seven weeks early after the team failed to make the playoffs. Kuznetsov had eight goals and 13 assists in 34 games in the KHL this season after putting up 38 goals and 46 assists in 100 games the previous two seasons.

Insight: Kemp is not expected to be ready for the Dodgers\' season-opening series in Australia, but he may be back soon thereafter. He has missed 145 games the last two seasons due to hamstring, shoulder and ankle injuries and hit a paltry .270 with six homers and a .723 OPS over 73 games in 2013. He\'s a typical high-risk, high-reward option.
Description: Boston right fielder Shane Victorino may give up hitting from the left side of the plate altogether, according to Tim Britton of the Providence Journal, though Victorino said "no decision\'s been made."
Insight: A leg injury prevented him from hitting lefty late last season and throughout the playoffs. He hit .314 with six homers and an .861 OPS in 169 at-bats as a lefty last season but in his career has been a much better right-handed hitter than a left-handed one.
Description: Saints backup running back Khiry Robinson figures to be a big contributor next season after the team sent Darren Sproles packing and is expected to do the same with veteran Pierre Thomas.
Insight: They will be taking a huge gamble on an unproven talent (Robinson) and a frequently injured former first-round selection (Mark Ingram), but money issues in New Orleans seem to be determining these moves.
