UPDATES & NEWS
Andrew McCutchen clubbed a solo-home run, which resulted in his only hit in four at-bats and the only Pirate run in their 5-1 loss to the Rays on Wednesday.
McCutchen joined White Sox 1B Jose Abreu, O's OF Adam Jones, and Reds 3B Todd Frazier for MLB lead in home runs thus far in June with eight. In addition, Cutch's 1.126 June OPS is tops among NL hitters (min. 50 AB).ANALYST: Michael Pichan
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
