UPDATES & NEWS
Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, five RBI, three runs scored and a walk against the Nationals on Tuesday.
Stanton's hot start continued on Tuesday night recording multiple hits in three of this last four games while raising his batting average to .317 on the season. He is currently one of the top fantasy players to own out the gates having connected for five home runs with 21 RBI through his first 63 at-bats and has shown no signs of slowing down.

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
