The Cowboys aren’t going to worry about switching sides with Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr to cover Bengals receiver A.J. Green.
They’re going to let Claiborne go at him if he’s lined up on that side of the field. Might as well let the rookie learn.
“We got 24 over there,” Carr said. “He has confidence in himself. The coaches have confidence in him for us to continue to play left and right. We are just going to play our sides, and whoever we get is whoever we get.”
Carr said it will be a good experience for Claiborne to take on one of the league’s most dangerous and productive receivers, although the Cowboys have switched in other games.
Angels recalled RHP Cam Bedrosian from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Mike Morin has been mediocre (putting it nicely) working in middle-relief for the Angels this season, posting a 6.00 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and a 13/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 20 appearances. Relief Pitcher Cam Bedrosian has been recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake, where he has posted a 3.15 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 27/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 20 innings pitched, to take Morin's spot in the bullpen.

Wilson Ramos is not in the Nationals starting lineup on Sunday.
This appears to be a routine day off for the Nationals starting Catcher (nothing out of the ordinary in a Sunday afternoon game), but the timing may provide Ramos an opportunity to break out of the mini-slump that he's in. After stringing together a 19-game hit-streak, Ramos has gone 0-for-11 in his last three games. Jose Lobaton, who is 1-for-8 in his career against opposing starting pitcher Aaron Harang, will get the start in Ramos' absence. Analysis: Brad Costilo
