Jonathan Broxton (forearm) will be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.
We hope you cracked your FAAB piggy bank over the weekend because Broxton will immediately slot into the Reds' closer role, according to manager Bryan Price. The big right-hander struggled with his command last season which was probably due to the injury, but he did boost his strikeouts which is certainly a positive. The plan is to have him handle ninth-inning responsibilities until Aroldis Champman returns and from there he'll slot in as a primary set-up man. His short-term value gets a big boost with the saves but even afterwards, he'll have significant value in leagues which also count holds. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Eagles are planning to sign QB Tim Tebow on Monday.
Oh come on now, Chip Kelly. What in the world are you doing here? Tebow and his limited skills will join Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez in the quarterback competition this summer, though it is unlikely Tebow is really being looked at the same. He's more for read options and gimmick plays; nothing more than that. Analysis: Howard Bender
Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-5 with a double and an RBI single on Sunday afternoon, as the Marlins lost to the Mets 7-6.
Stanton went 2-for-5 on Sunday afternoon, while working the count well, hitting a double, and knocking in Dee Gordon with an RBI single. On the season so far, Stanton is batting a mere .239 and looks to be struggling to adjust to pitchers throwing him junk. Without a legitimate four hitter behind him, pitchers will continue to pitch around him and the struggles might persist. It might be time for the Marlins to consider moving Prado out of the four hole and bumping up a guy like Michael Morse or Marcell Ozuna in order to give Stanton more proper protection. Then again this all might be an overreaction considering he got two knocks today… Analysis: Dom Murtha
