Chris Colabello went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run, two RBI, a run scored and a walk against the Yankees on Sunday.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. We've seen this from Colabello before back in April. While it might be nice to grab him for the short run, expecting him to sustain this current level of production is just foolish. If you believe otherwise, just take a look at his numbers in May which ended up getting him demoted.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Kyle Schwarber is not in the Cubs lineup on Monday.

Manager Joe Maddon has made it abundantly clear that Schwarber isn't going anywhere, even when Miguel Montero completes his rehab assignment. Monday night simply appears to be regular rest for the young backstop, so David Ross is catching instead and batting seventh. On FanDuel, Ross is listed at a very affordable $2,200, so he might worth a look in daily formats considering the starting nod tonight.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Steelers rookie CB Senquez Golson may need season-ending shoulder surgery.

Golson was considered one of the steals of the draft leaving Chicago in early May, considering he led the SEC in interceptions last season, and has a resume of impressive production throughout his career at Ole Miss. This will prove to be a big blow for a revamped Steelers defense this season.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

David Amerson suffered a shoulder injury in Monday's practice.

This is not a good sign for the young corner, who regressed mightily last season, grading out as one of the worst CB's in the league last season. If he wanted to get back in the coaching staff's favor, training camp was going to be the place to do it, but unfortunately he was injured on Monday afternoon. The good news here is that the injury doesn't seem to be too serious, so he might have a chance to prove himself going forward.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Denard Span (back) will take live batting practice in a few days.

Good news for Nats fans as Span has been out for almost a month with back spasms. Span, once cleared, will certainly need a rehab assignment before coming back. It's been an up and down season for Span as he has been on and off the DL a couple of times with various injuries. Once he's back and healthy he should be slotted right back in as the lead off hitter for Washington who is in the middle of a dog fight for the division lead. Analysis: Matt Selz

Ereck Flowers will miss a few days of practice with a hip flexor.

This appears to be a minor injury for the Giants first round pick that has him listed day-to-day. Flowers will be slotted in as the starting left tackle for big blue as Will Beatty suffered a torn pec earlier in spring.  Analysis: Matt Selz

Marlins announce Brad Hand will start on Tuesday.

Being in a long relief role for most of the season this year, Hand will be given a shot in the rotation in place of the traded Dan Haren. He has not been good all year posting a 5.12 ERA in 45 1/3 innings and is not worth a pickup no matter how deep the league is. Analysis: Matt Selz

Tyler Wilson has been recalled from Triple-A Norfolk for Monday's start.

Chris Tillman was scheduled to make Monday's start but has instead been pushed back to Friday as he deals with an ankle injury. Wilson will be the spot starter for Baltimore as they open a series on the road in Oakland. This will be the second start for Wilson in an O's jersey and is a decent play against a struggling Oakland lineup. Analysis: Matt Selz
