UPDATES & NEWS
Update: The Cardinals and Matt Carpenter are in agreement on a multi-year extension.
Following a breakout 2013 season, the Cardinals are now looking to lockup their starting third basemen with a very lucrative deal. It was reported yesterday the deal would be a six-year contract worth no less than $50 million in total. This would guarantee Carpenter would be with the club through the prime of his career, which great news for prospective fantasy owners for 2014 and beyond. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
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
