Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez is still leaning toward Jason Heyward in leadoff spot, and Evan Gattis batting cleanup behind Freddie Freeman.
Moving Heyward to the leadoff spot makes some sense, despite the groans from fantasy owners as it would likely cut down his RBI potential substantially. Heyward has posted a .335-plus OBP in each of the last two seasons and is a better fit than B.J. Upton and his Mark Trumbo-esque on-base percentage or the young Andrelton Simmons who posted a .296 OBP in his first full-season last year. If the move to the leadoff spot would become official for Heyward it would likely lower his ADP some making someone like Yoenis Cespedes arguably more appealing around that 65-75 pick range. As for Gattis and Freeman their positions in the three and four hole were to be expected. Thus, this announcement should not affect there draft stock much as both have caught enough helium coming into this season as it is.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Rajai Davis said Sunday evening that he doesn't believe his groin injury is serious.
Davis pulled up limp on a single during Sunday's game after having a ridiculous series against the Indians. He stole three bases on Saturday and scored three runs in both games and fantasy owners jumped at the chance to add Davis. However, a problem to the leg area is a major concern for a speed guy like the center-fielder. Don't be surprised to see the Tigers play it safe for a bit and have Anthony Gose fill in for Davis until he is healthy. Analysis: Rob Trayah
Redskins are likely to pick up Robert Griffin III's option for 2016.
The true answer is "They better pick it up". The deal to pick up Griffin cost the Redskins a fortune so it shouldn't be that big of a surprise, even with the troubles he has had, that Washington is picking up the option for next year. He will have another year under Jay Gruden and his system before heading into 2016 so this might be a trade value season for RG3. Analysis: Rob Trayah
