Reds manager Bryan Price said Aroldis Chapman could throw live batting practice by the end of the teams upcoming road trip.
The news just keeps getting better and better each day, especially if you saw footage of the line drive and the circulating picture of the staples in his head. Live batting practice would be a great step for Chapman as it means that he'll be throwing more prior to his eventual activation from the disabled list. The plan is to still have him begin a rehab assignment at the beginning of May with a mid-month return.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?

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
