The Dallas Cowboys will look to restructure QB Tony Romo's contract this offseason.
Salary cap issues are always in the forefront of the offseason plans for any NFL franchise. If the Cowboys can free up some cap room, that would bode well for their recovery from a disappointing 2013.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
Kyle Schwarber is not in the Cubs lineup on Monday.
Manager Joe Maddon has made it abundantly clear that Schwarber isn't going anywhere, even when Miguel Montero completes his rehab assignment. Monday night simply appears to be regular rest for the young backstop, so David Ross is catching instead and batting seventh. On FanDuel, Ross is listed at a very affordable $2,200, so he might worth a look in daily formats considering the starting nod tonight. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Denard Span (back) will take live batting practice in a few days.
Good news for Nats fans as Span has been out for almost a month with back spasms. Span, once cleared, will certainly need a rehab assignment before coming back. It's been an up and down season for Span as he has been on and off the DL a couple of times with various injuries. Once he's back and healthy he should be slotted right back in as the lead off hitter for Washington who is in the middle of a dog fight for the division lead. Analysis: Matt Selz
Steven Matz (lat) threw off flat ground Monday.
Matz is trying to rehab a partially torn lat and Monday marked the first time he threw a ball since landing on the DL in early July. Terry Collins, the Mets Manager, is expecting Matz back in early September, having the Mets going back to a six-man rotation. If Matz is available he may be worth a waiver wire pick up to provide some sneaky wins comes September. Analysis: Matt Selz
