The Redskins will introduce Jay Gruden as their new Head Coach this afternoon. He will get a five-year deal.
Gruden makes for a great fit with the Redskins, who have a star player at each of the skill positions on offense. It was amazing to see what Gruden was able to do with a less-talented Andy Dalton, and will now get to work with a rising start in Robert Griffin. Across the board, the Redskins offense should now be upgraded when preparing for 2014 fantasy drafts. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
