Joel Embiid (back) will have to undergo extensive evaluation by the Cavaliers, sources say. The team will not rely on independent evaluation.
The Cavaliers are in a unique position as they have the ability to draft one of three potential superstars in Joel Embiid, Andrew Wiggins, and Jabari Parker. This is an important pick for Cleveland, so they won't want to screw it up. Expect extensive evaluations on all three players prior to the June draft.ANALYST: David Kerr
Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
