UPDATES & NEWS
Chase Headley says his knee is feeling good and started rehabbing a week after surgery, so he got to offseason workouts earlier than usual.
Last season was a major disappointment for Headley and his owners as he hit just 13 home runsa to follow up a breakout 31-homer season the year before. With the knee being healthy and him ahead of schedule with regard to his rehab, the hope is that he posts numbers somewhere in between but closer to his 2012 totals. A .280-20-80 season would be a welcomed sight.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Johnny Manziel reported for the first day of voluntary workouts Monday.
Manziel has completed his rehab program and is looking to be the team's starting quarterback in 2015. There has been speculation about the Browns drafting a quarterback in this draft, but we will have to wait and see. Their selections in the draft will give us a glimpse of what the organization thinks about Manziel, as well as how they feel about him as their starting quarterback. The draft will be a big indicator to us, and to Johnny Football, about his status in Cleveland. Analysis: Colby Conway
Joe Nathan (elbow) threw a full bullpen session Monday.
Nathan was able to throw off a mound on Saturday, but today was his first full bullpen session since suffering the elbow injury. Joakim Soria has been dynamite as the team's closer, and it is quite possible that he returns from the DL as the team's set-up man, not the closer. This is worth monitoring, especially if you own Nathan or Soria. Analysis: Colby Conway
