The Washington Redskins remain open to parting ways with Kirk Cousins at the right price.
Mark Maske of The Washington Post reported the Redskins want a second-round pick in the NFL draft in exchange for the backup quarterback, according to a person familiar with the team's planning.
They're highly unlikely to get it. Cousins seems to be the perfect fit to be a career back up in the NFL for 10 plus years. He has a 56.2 completion percentage, 51.5 QBR and 8:10 TD-to-INT ratio in eight career games. It would be a sign of absolute desperation if a quarterback-needy team gave up a second-rounder for Cousins. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Indians optioned P Josh Tomlin to Triple-A Columbus.
Tomlin has some upside if he can repeat his 8.13 K/9 from last season, but home runs will likely always be an issue. Tomlin has allowed 1.41 HR/9 over his big league career, far too high for him to be a consistent fantasy producer. He will almost certainly be in the rotation at some point and could even get the call up before Danny Salazar even though Salazar has far more upside for fantasy. Analysis: Steve Pimental
