Derek Norris went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, three RBI and a run scored during the A's 10-5 win over the Yankees on Sunday.
Although Norris is now hitting .391 in the month of June, Sunday's three RBI bring his total up to just four in the month. Despite his recent drop off in power production, Norris is still off to a great start sitting on a .305 average with seven home runs and 29 RBI making him worthy of fantasy consideration in all by the shallowest of fantasy leagues.

Von Miller was named MVP of Super Bowl 50.
Miller was an absolute beast today and was probably the biggest reason for the Broncos' Super Bowl victory. A pair of strip-sacks ended up being the two most important plays of the day. One in the first quarter that resulted in a fumble recovery for a touchdown and the other coming in the fourth quarter during the Panthers' last gasp led to Denver's victory. Miller is set to be a free agent this offseason, but there's no way the Broncos will let him walk. Miller will be paid handsomely and he is surely ready to continue his career in Denver after the success he has already had in the Mile High City. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
Marshawn Lynch tweeted on Sunday night indicating that he plans to retire.
Lynch stole the thunder from the Super Bowl by announcing his plans to retire during the game. Regardless of when and where Lynch retired, the news still remains the biggest sports news of the day outside of the big game. The Seahawks lose their bruising back (although they can replace him with Thomas Rawls) and the game loses an ultra enteraining running back. Lynch went the Calvin Johnson/Barry Sanders route and is calling it quits even with a year or two of effective play still left in him. The Seahawks and several other teams are bound to try and talk him out of retirement, but the notoriously stubborn Lynch is unlikely to change his mind. Rawls becomes the top running back and should be a solid fantasy back in 2016. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
Jimmy Butler (knee) will not play Monday and he will likely miss Wednesday's game against the Hawks.
One would think that if Jimmy Butler would be injured in the first half, his back would be sore from carrying the Bulls offense. But an MRI on his knee revealed a strain. He is already ruled out for Monday and Wednesday is more than likely a game Butler will miss as well. This is potential good news for Derrick Rose owners who will have to help provide offense with Butler potentially out for the week. Butler's status for All Star weekend is unknown, much will depend on how his knee responds to therapy this week. Analysis: Greg Jewett
Jonathan Stewart has returned to the game.
As an update, Jonathan has progressed from questionable to return rather quickly. He not only was on the field in the Panthers recent possession, he has carried the ball and caught a pass in consecutive plays. Adrenaline should allow him to play as long as his foot will hold up. Good news for the Panthers if Stewart can be effective after returning from the injury. Analysis: Greg Jewett
Jonathan Stewart (ankle) limped off of the field and is questionable to return.
Jonathan Stewart left the field after a player rolled onto his foot at the end of a tackle. Stewart made it off the field under his own power, but his return is officially listed as questionable. Carolina needs its best running back to keep the Bronco defense honest. If Stewart is indeed lost for the game, it will definitely affect the Panther offense moving forward. More updates are sure to follow regarding Stewart. Analysis: Greg Jewett
Freddy Garcia has announced he has retired from baseball.
Veteran pitcher Freddy Garcia pitched for seven teams in his 15 year career in the majors winning 156 games with a 4.15 ERA and over 1,600 strikeouts. Garcia will not attempt to pitch in a 16th year as he announced his retirement prior to pitching in the Caribbean Series championship. His best season was 2001 in which he won 18 games and finished third in the Cy Young Award voting. He has been out of the majors the last two seasons so this news ends any chance of a comeback.

Padres signed Hunter Redman to a minor league deal.
In an effort to gain more organizational depth at catcher, the Padres have signed a minor league free agent. Hunter Redman only logged 11 at bats last year in the minors but should slot in wherever San Diego needs him in their system this year. Redman is only 23 and played his college ball at Texas Tech.
