Daisuke Matsuzaka will start the second game of Sunday's doubleheader.
Regardless of what you may be thinking or what anyone else tells you, Matsuzaka should not even remotely be considered for use as a spot starter in your fantasy league. Despite a 2.14 ERA right now, he is still having major command issues and walks far too many guys. Between his 7.29 BB/9 and his 4.10 FIP, it's pretty easy to see that his actual ERA is not indicative of the way he's been pitching.ANALYST: Howard Bender
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
